Auguste-Émile Pinchart (1842-1920). The painting - which depicts a girl teasing a bust of the god Pan with a reed - is signed by the artist and presented in a superb quality, bespoke gold metal leaf frame. In Greek mythology, when the lustful Pan attempted to seduce a nymph by the name of Syrinx, she ran to a nearby river and asked for assistance from the water nymphs, the Naiads. As Pan reached out to grab Syrinx the Naiads transformed her into a cluster of water reeds. When Pan let out a frustrated sigh, his breath blew across the hollow reeds producing a haunting tune. These reeds became the Pipes of Pan. All our paintings are sold in the finest condition they can be for their age having just been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished.
