Lot 5: An important statuary marble chimney piece

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Regency, circa 1810, designed by Thomas Hope for the Indian Room at his mansion in Duchess Street, and possibly carved by John Flaxman the later moulded shelf above rectangular jambs carved with Greek tripods, lotus leaves and anthemia and with pine cone finials, on bird monopodia supports, the aperture within a narrow carved guilloche border 120 cm. high, 209 cm. wide; 3 ft. 11 1/4 in., 6 ft. 10 1/4 in. Provenance: Almost certainly supplied to Thomas Hope (1769-1831) for the Indian Room of his mansion in Duchess Street, London, circa 1800, and recorded in situ in engravings published in 1807 (see Literature) Thence by descent to his eldest son, Henry Thomas Hope (1808-1862) Removed from the house in Duchess Street prior to its demolition in 1851 Collection of Mrs Vernon Sangster, sold Christie's, South Kensington, 20 August 1997, lot 50 (unprovenanced) Literature: Thomas Hope, Household Furniture and Interior Decoration (1807), pls.VI & XVIII David Watkin, Thomas Hope and the Neo-Classical Idea (1968), pp.33, 99 & 108-110, illus. Mildred Archer, Early Views of India. The Picturesque Journey of Thomas and William Daniell, 1786-1794, 1980, p.227, illus. David Watkin and Peter Thornton, 'New Light on the Hope Mansion', Apollo, September 1987, pp.165-166, illus. It is virtually certain that this is the chimney piece commissioned by Thomas Hope for the 'Indian Room' of his mansion in Duchess Street, London, circa 1800, and illustrated in Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, published by Hope in 1807 (see illustrations). The correspondence is exact between the chimney piece and Hope's illustration, and the quality of the carved decoration is outstanding, reflecting Hope's discernment as a patron, especially in the area of sculpture, and his insistence on the highest standards of execution in the creation of his London residence. The chimney piece would have been designed by Hope himself, or under his close personal direction. Hope took a leading role in the design of the Duchess Street mansion, and the iconography of the chimney piece is typical of his love of Classical Antiquity and the use of appropriate symbolism linking the function of an object to its design. As Hope himself explained in a note on the chimney piece, the jambs are carved with Ancient Roman candelabra symbolic of fire and light, while the pine cones are such as '... those used in Italy to light fires' (Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807). The quality of the carved decoration clearly points to the involvement of a leading talent, and it is known that Hope employed some of the greatest artists of his day to embellish the interiors of the Duchess Street mansion. Among the sculptors was the young Francis Chantrey, who went on to become the foremost English portrait sculptor of the Regency, but another major figure was the celebrated Neo-Classical sculptor John Flaxman, who is known to have carved at least two chimney pieces for the house in Duchess Street, as recorded in the artist's own account book, now in the Manuscripts Department of the British Museum (Add MS 39.784 BB; reproduced in Edward Croft-Murray, 'An Account Book of John Flaxman R.A.', Walpole Society, XXVIII, 1939-40). The account book reveals that on 1 July 1800 Flaxman made a charge of £157 10s for supplying Thomas Hope with 'A Marble Chimney Piece Slab & setting up', followed by a second charge of £200 on 9 November of the same year for supplying and installing another marble chimney piece at Duchess Street. It was at exactly this time that work was nearing completion on the decoration of the Indian Room. In July 1800 the painter Thomas Daniell supplied the last of the Indian views from which the interior derived its name, and it is possible that either one of the two payments recorded in Flaxman's account book refers to the present chimney piece. Flaxman is known to have produced only a small number of chimney pieces during his career. One of these, commissioned by the poet and collector Samuel Rogers for his town house in St James's Place, was destroyed in the Second World War; others, recorded in designs, are today untraced (see David Bindman (ed.), John Flaxman, exh. cat., Royal Academy of Arts, 1979). The present chimney piece would thus be one of only a tiny number of surviving examples of Flaxman's work in this area and a particularly precious token of the sculptor's collaboration with one of the foremost collectors and patrons of the early 19th century. The relationship between Hope and Flaxman was especially close. The two first met in Rome in 1792, when Hope, then on the Grand Tour, commissioned a sculptural group representing the marriage of Hercules and Hebe. This was in fact Hope's earliest recorded act of artistic patronage, and although never completed, it was followed by other commissions for work by Flaxman, including a copy of the Apollo Belvedere; a sculptural group of Aurora and Cephalus, which would later occupy a place of honour in Duchess Street; and most important of all, the celebrated illustrations to Dante, first published in 1793, which established Flaxman as the pre-eminent Neo-classical artist of his generation. When Flaxman returned to London from Rome in 1794 he continued to receive commissions from Hope, including a bas-relief of the Birth of Bacchus; a bust of Hope's brother Henry Philip, displayed in the Dining Room at Duchess Street; and of course the chimney pieces supplied for the Duchess Street house in 1800. It illustrates the close relationship between Flaxman and Hope that at this point in his career the sculptor was prepared to set aside more monumental commissions in order to assist his patron in the decoration of his London residence. At the same time it highlights the importance of the Duchess Street mansion, which can be counted among the greatest town houses ever built in London, remarkable not only for its architecture but also for its contents, which included Hope's fabled collection of Antique sculpture and vases, old master paintings, and the finest and most stylistically advanced furniture and decorations. The house provided Hope with a base in the capital and a sumptuous setting for entertainments attended by England's social and artistic elite, including royalty. However, it was also intended to serve an educational and cultural purpose, and indeed had a profound influence on the arts and collecting at this period. The 'Indian Room', which served as a drawing room, was characteristic of the opulent, eclectic, yet rigorous decoration of the interior, so well described by Hope himself:- This room was principally fitted up for the reception of four large pictures, executed by Mr. Daniel, and representing buildings in India, of Moorish architecture. Some part of the arrangement and decoration of the room were, for this reason, borrowed from the Saracenic style; though, from the unavoidable intermixture of other productions of art, of a totally different character with the pictures aforementions, it was impossible to adhere to the Moorish style in the greater part of the detail. A low sofa, after the eastern fashion, fills the corners of this room. Its ceiling, imitated from those prevailing in Turkish palaces, consists of a canopy of trellis-work, or reeds, tide together with ribbons. The border and the compartments of the ceiling display foliage, flowers, peacock's feathers, and other ornaments of a rich hue, and of a delicate texture, which, from the lightness of their weight, seem peculiarly adapted for this lofty and suspended situation. Persian carpets cover the floor. As the colours of this room, in compliance with the oriental taste, are everywhere very vivid, and very strongly contrasted, due attention has been paid to their gradually lightening, as the eye rose from the skirting to the cornice. The tint of the sofa is deep crimson; that of the walls sky blue; and that of the ceiling pale yellow, intermixed with azure and with sea green. Ornaments of gold, in various shades, reliec and harmonize these colours. Round the room are placed incense urns, cassolettes, flower baskets, and other vehicles of natural and artificial perfumes. (Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, 1807) Certain of the contents of the Duchess Street mansion were removed during Thomas Hope's lifetime to the Deepdene, his country seat in Surrey. Others followed in the period following his death, when the Duchess Street mansion passed to his eldest son, Henry Thomas Hope, another notable collector and patron. For a time Henry Thomas continued to reside in his father's house; in 1834 he gave a ball there, attended by Disraeli, who in a letter to his sister reported that the party had 'supped off gold and danced in the sculpture gallery' (quoted in Henry William Law and Irene Law, The Book of the Beresford Hopes, 1925, p.107). However, in 1849 Henry Thomas built a new house for himself in Piccadilly, and in 1851 the Duchess Street Mansion was demolished. At this point the remaining contents were removed, and in 1917 the bulk of the Hope collection was dispersed in a celebrated series of sales held by Henry Thomas's eventual heir, Henry Pelham Clinton Hope, 8th Duke of Newcastle. No chimney pieces are listed in the catalogues of these sales, and it can only be assumed that the present chimney piece, and others from the Duchess Street mansion, had been disposed of privately, probably at the time the house was demolished. Various treasures from the Duchess Street mansion have been traced, including works of art and furniture now preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Lady Lever Art Gallery, the National Gallery, the Ashmolean Museum, the Royal Pavilion, Brighton, and the Faringdon Collection at Buscot Park, as well as the Huntington Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the J. Paul Getty Museum, California, the Thorwaldsen Museum, Copenhagen, and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, New South Wales. However, this is the only known chimney piece which can be linked to the Duchess Street mansion and one of the very few major items still in private hands.

Description: FRANCIS WILLIAM BLAGDON (1778-1819), WILLIAM DANIELL, R.A. (1769-1840) AND FRANCIS SWAIN WARD (fl.1734-1794)A Brief History of Ancient and Modern India. London: Edward Orme, 1805. Oblong 2° (445 x 545mm). Engraved frontispiece, hand-coloured engraved plate of native judges, etched title to the '24 View of Hindostan', 24 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Edward Orme after F.S. Ward and W. Daniell. (Frontispiece and title browned, light browning of plate margins, first plate slightly creased with short tear at lower margin, plate 14 affected by pinhole and slight paper faults at margin, Hunter's Scenery in Mysore not bound in.) Mid 19th-century morocco-backed blue marbled boards (rubbed).This three-part work, originally published in 17 numbers, consisted of Blagdon's history, Daniell and Ward's 'Views in Hindostan' and Hunter's 'Scenery in Mysore'. Although this copy only contains Blagdon's historical text and the series of 24 views after Daniell and Ward, it was almost certainly sold in this form by the publisher. Abbey readily admits that 'these three works are sometimes found separately and sometimes together, as is indicated by the preface... it is probable that at different times Orme made up copies in one or two volumes, and in different styles'. Tooley even holds that Hunter's views were 'frequently bound up with this work' as opposed to being an integral part of it. Abbey Travel II, 424; Tooley 93.

Description: View of a mosque on the river Gumti, Lucknow pencil and watercolour 101/4 x 153/4 in. (26 x 40 cm.) EXHIBITION London, Eyre & Hobhouse, Thomas Daniell in India, 14 March - 30 March 1972, no. 2, exh. cat. illustrated. NOTES The city of Lucknow was embellished with many grand buildings early in the reign of Shuja-ud-Daula, Nawab of Oudh (1753-75), before he moved his capital to Faizabad. His successor Asaf-ud-Daula (1775-97), see lot 29, moved the capital back to Lucknow and began a new programme of building. It was at this stage that the Daniells visited the city. Returning from their tour in the Himalayan foothills, they spent the whole monsoon period of 1789 there, from early July until mid October staying with General Claud Martin, the French adventurer who was in the service of the Nawab. The Daniells planned a set of aquatints of the city hoping to win the patronage of the Nawab but when they presented him with their drawings he was not willing to give any commission. The present watercolour was probably executed in preparation for this proposed series.
