Lot 57: Evelyn de Morgan

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

Description: 1855-1919 1914, also titled the vision signed and dated l.r.: EDeM 1914 (date in oval) oil on canvas 61 by 78.7 cm., 24 by 31 in. This painting, originally titled '1914' but subsequently more usually known as The Vision, was painted by Evelyn De Morgan at the time of the outbreak of the First World War. Evelyn's husband, William De Morgan, wrote to a friend on 1 August 1914: 'I have just read that a Declaration of War has been made that may make our precious Civilization a chaos!' Mrs A.M.W. Stirling describes in William De Morgan and His Wife (1922) how Evelyn immediately embarked on a 'series of pictures in which subjects relating to wartime were treated in symbolic guise.' These works were exhibited in the artist's studio in Edith Grove to raise money for war charities. The present painting was included in such an exhibition in 1916 in aid of the Red Cross. A note in the catalogue of the exhibition explained that the painting was intended to represent 'the threatening horror dawning on Peace and Plenty'. Provenance: St Dunstan's, 1919; Bought by Mrs A.M.W. Stirling (as The Vision); Sotheby's London, 18 November 1970, lot 141A (as Ceres, Proserpina and Pluto); William E. Wiltshire III; Sotheby's London, 28 November 1990, lot 44 (as The Vision) Exhibited: London, Red Cross Benefit Exhibition, Edith Grove, Chelsea, 1916, no.2 Literature: Evelyn De Morgan - Oil Paintings, London, 1996, cat. no.88, p.26, illd pl.61.

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

Description: Portrait of a young girl in a blue dress signed with monogram (lower left) oil on canvas 12 x 10 in. (30.5 x 25.4 cm.) NOTES Not only do paintings by Evelyn De Morgan rarely appear on the market, but portraits by her are particularly scarce, most of her work being of of a literary, religious or allegorical nature. She did in fact exhibit a number of portraits at the Grosvenor Gallery, all of female sitters: Marjorie Mure in 1880, Miss Winifred Bulwer in 1881, Margaret Rawlins in 1883, and Mildred and Freda Spencer Stanhope in 1887. Margaret Rawlins was sold at Christie's London, 11 November 1999, lot 22, (œ30,000), and her only other known portraits are likenesses of her husband (De Morgan Foundation and National Portrait Gallery; see Catherine Gordon and others Evelyn De Morgan: Oil Paintings, London 1996, nos. 40 and 77, both illustrated). It is possible that the present work is a portrait of Winifred Bulwer. For a note on the artist please see lot 71.

Lot 89: Evelyn De Morgan (1855-1919)

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

Description: Portrait of Mary De Morgan (?) signed with monogram (lower left) oil on canvas 12 x 10 in. (30.5 x 25.4 cm.) NOTES The motif in the left-hand corner of the painting is the joint monogram of William and Evelyn de Morgan, designed by William and used by Evelyn subsequent to their marriage in 1887. The sitter has been tentatively identified as either Mary Beatrice (Molly) or Augustus (Milly) De Morgan, daughters of William's brother Edward Lindsay De Morgan. Milly records William's popularity with all his nieces and nephews, and how his unique vision allowed him to transform the ordinary with "his entertaining language". William also entertained them from afar with letters embellished with mythological animal hybrids. Much of his correspondence with the adult Mary survives, perhaps evidence of a particularly close relationship. In the late 1880s Mary and Milly would have been about 12 and 13 respectively. The girl in the picture seems at ease with the artist; her expression is gentle and thoughtful and her hands casually group around her face. Its intimate composition further suggests an informal family portrait, rather than a more formal commission. A drawing by Evelyn de Morgan, depicting a face similar to the present sitter's, can be found in the Witt Library archive. We are grateful to Dr. Lois Drawmer of The De Morgan Foundation for her help preparing this catalogue entry.

Lot 90: Evelyn de Morgan (British, 1855-1919)

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

Description: THE VISION signed with initials and dated 1914 oil on canvas 24 by 31 in. 61 by 78.7 cm. Evelyn de Morgan's career developed in a rich artistic community, as the niece and pupil of the artist John Roddam Spencer-Stanhope and as the wife of the celebrated potter and novelist William de Morgan. As a woman of independent means, de Morgan was not obligated to sell her pictures, and as a result her rare paintings evolved in a highly personal style. She worked within the aesthetic Burne-Jones idiom creating poetic and highly complex allegories with practically no literary or historical content. Her richly painted works were accompanied by vague allegorical titles that have led to their comparison with the Symbolists. The present work, The Vision, was described by de Morgan in her benefit exhibition for the British and Italian Red Cross in 1916 as, "The threatening horror dawning on Peace and Plenty", expressing her horror at the destruction of the Great War. The painting depicts two allegorical females, adorned with the symbolic attributes of Peace and Plenty, being threatened by a devilish figure. "As the winds of war sweep over them, Plenty grasps at a single sheaf of corn and Peace becomes swathed in a bloody red cloak as her laurel wreath is torn from her head" (De Morgan Foundation, 1996, p. 82). The effects of the Great War had disrupted the civic virtues of peace and prosperity of de Morgan's England. Provenance: St. Dunstan's Mrs. Stirling (acquired from the above in 1919) Sale, London, Sotheby's, November 18, 1970, Lot 141a (as Ceres, Proserpina and Pluto) William E. Wiltshire III Peter Nahum, London Exhibited: Edith Grove, Chelsea, London, Exhibition of Pictures Painted by Evelyn de Morgan, Exhibitied for the Benefit of the British Red Cross and the Italian Croce Rossa, 1916, No. 2 Literature: De Morgan Foundation, Evelyn de Morgan: Oil Paintings, London, 1996, No. 88, plate 61, illustrated.

Description: Study of two nude female figures black, white and yellow chalk on brown paper 161/4 x 23 in. (41.8 x 58.5 cm.) PROVENANCE with J.X. Reynolds, New York, from whom acquired by the present owner in 1979. EXHIBITION The Painter was a Lady, 1986-7, no. 9. A Struggle for Fame, 1994, cat. p. 57. Ladies of the Brush, 1994-5, no. 11. NOTES Evelyn de Morgan studied at the Slade school, famed for its emphasis on life-drawing. Her nude drawings combine the sense of animated movement derived from figure study with a serene classicism which reflects the teaching of Edward J. Poynter. De Morgan produced numerous studies for her paintings, often drawing pairs of figures, or the same figure with and without drapery.

Description: Evelyn Pickering, (1855-1919); a plaster of paris bust of a male modelled after the Antique, supported on an integral socle base and with a pale green-grey patina, 77cm high, signed Evelyn Pickering and dated 1873 (some damage) (see illustration) Cf. A.M.W. Sterling, William De Morgan & his wife, (1922) for a similar bronze bust of Medusa illustrated between pages 186 & 187. Evelyn Pickering is perhaps better known as the wife of the eminent potter William de Morgan (1839-1917) and herself a very accomplished artist, painting in the Pre-Raphaelite style, her work full of allegory and symbolism. She studied at the Slade School where she was one of the earliest female students and her uncle, the artist Roddam Spencer Stanhope, a member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, helped to shape her style. He lived in Florence and she made frequent visits to him and to study the Renaissance masters. G.F. Watts said of her, ''I look upon her as the first woman artist of the day -- if not of all time''. The date of the piece on offer would indicate its creation during the Slade years.
