Paul Delaroche Paris, 1797 - 1856 Etude pour Charlemagne Huile sur toile de forme ronde, non montée sur châssis

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

Description: Paul Delaroche Paris, 1797 - 1856 Etude pour Charlemagne Huile sur toile de forme ronde, non montée sur châssis Diamètre : 15 cm. (5,9 in.) Commentaire : Notre esquisse est très proche d'un dessin passé en vente chez Artcurial, Paris, le 24 mars 2010, n°71, (Fig. 1). Ce dessin d'après nature semble être préparatoire à notre tête couronnée, elle-même à l'évidence préparatoire à une composition plus ambitieuse. Stephen Bann rattache cette esquisse à la commande royale faite en 1838 à Paul Delaroche pour le Pavillon du Roi du château de Versailles. Cinq grandes compositions avaient été programmées : 'Charlemagne passant les Alpes', 'Charlemagne couronné empereur', 'Le couronnement de Pépin le Bref', 'Le baptême de Clovis' et 'Pharamond sur le pavois'. Delaroche réalisa pour chacune de ces compositions – hormis pour 'Pharamond sur le pavois' – des esquisses préparatoires qui furent dispersées à sa vente après décès en 1857. Nous remercions Monsieur Stephen Bann de nous avoir confirmé l'authenticité de cette œuvre ainsi que pour son aide à la rédaction de cette notice.

Paul Delaroche Paris, 1797 - 1856 Juliette se réveillant près de Roméo Huile sur panneau

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

Description: Paul Delaroche Paris, 1797 - 1856 Juliette se réveillant près de Roméo Huile sur panneau h: 15 w: 17 cm Provenance : Ancienne étiquette de vente au verso portant le numéro 76 Commentaire : Cette scène est tirée du célèbre drame de Shakespeare publié pour la première fois en 1597. Les deux amants sont dans la crypte des Capulets. Après avoir absorbée la potion du frère Laurent qui l'a plongée dans un profond sommeil simulant la mort, Juliette se réveille et sort de sa tombe. C'est alors qu'elle découvre le corps inanimé de Roméo qui s'est par désespoir empoisonné au pied de la tombe de Juliette après l'annonce de sa mort. Notre esquisse est un parfait exemple de la forte inspiration de la littérature anglaise auprès de la jeune génération d'artistes romantiques dont Delacroix et Delaroche sont sans aucun doute les plus célèbres représentants. Le voyage en Angleterre qu'effectue Delaroche en 1827 est un passage obligé pour cette génération romantique ; pensons aux travaux de Géricault, aux illustrations littéraires de Byron ou Shakespeare par Delacroix. Ce dernier milite en 1828 en faveur des représentations au théâtre de l'Odéon de 'Roméo et Juliette' qui, dans leur adaptation en langue originale selon la version de Garrick, ne recueillent pas le succès attendu auprès du public parisien et renforcent ainsi la scission entre romantiques et classiques. Delaroche réalise des dessins qui illustrent le dernier acte d'Henri III et sa cour, pièce d'Alexandre Dumas représentée pour la première fois en 1829. Stephan Bann réalise un parallèle entre notre esquisse et la célèbre composition Les Enfants d'Edouard, exposée au Salon de 1831. Il remarque le même arrière plan latéral prenant une part importante de la composition et qui laisse le regard se perdre dans une ambiance très légèrement lumineuse et mystérieuse propre à une interprétation très personnelle de la scène. Nous remercions Monsieur Stephen Bann de nous avoir confirmé l'authenticité de cette œuvre ainsi que pour son aide à la rédaction de cette notice.

Description: Paul Delaroche Paris, 1797 - 1856 Vue d'Ariccia Crayon noir et estompe Sans cadre h: 10 w: 16,50 cm Provenance : Ancienne collection Horace-Paul Delaroche-Vernet, fils de Delaroche, son cachet (L.1301) en bas à droite Commentaire : Ce dessin doit dater du deuxième séjour de l'artiste à Rome en 1844. Le sujet est en fait la campagne romaine des Colli Albani, et on voit clairement à gauche la petite ville d'Ariccia, avec l'église Santa Maria dell'Assunzione de Bernini. Delaroche travaillait notamment pendant son séjour à Rome sur sa 'Vierge et enfant' destinée au Marquis de Hertford (actuellement à la Wallace Collection), et l'on voit dans la composition de ce tableau un fond de paysage assez comparable. Nous remercions Monsieur Stephen Bann qui nous a confirmé l'authenticité de ce dessin qu'il date vers 1844 ainsi que pour son aide à l'élaboration de cette notice.

Description: Paul Delaroche Paris, 1797 - 1856 Portrait de François Delessert Fusain, craie blanche et pastel Dédicacé et signé 'à Monsieur fr Delessert / Paul Delaroche' dans le bas Sans cadre 'PORTRAIT OF FRANCOIS DELESSERT', CHARCOAL, WHITE CHALK AND PASTEL, DEDICATED AND SIGNED LOWER, BY PAUL DELAROCHE h: 31,70 w: 23,20 cm Provenance : Ancienne collection Louis-Antoine et Véronique Prat, leur cachet (L.3617) en bas à droite Commentaire : Ce dessin est tout a fait typique des portraits "à deux crayons" que l'artiste destinait à ses proches. Un portrait de Francois Delessert par Delaroche (1847, huile sur toile, 120 x 82 cm) était présenté à l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts dans l'exposition rétrospective de Delaroche en 1857 (n° 37). Ce portrait appartenait à cette date à Madame Hottinguer. Dans la thèse de Ziff sur Delaroche (1977), il est encore décrit comme faisant partie de la collection du Baron Rodolphe Hottinguer, ainsi que le portrait de Caroline Delessert (la femme de Francois), qui date de 1840. Ce dessin devrait être daté bien avant, selon Monsieur Stephen Bann, peut-être à la fin des années 1820, ou début des années 1830. Les liens de Delaroche avec la famille Delessert ont commencé probablement vers 1827, avec le portrait à l'huile des deux filles Delessert, qui a peut-être paru au Salon de 1827-28 (n° 308). Nous remercions Monsieur Stephen Bann de nous avoir aimablement confirmé l'authenticité de ce dessin ainsi que pour son aide à la rédaction de cette notice.

Description: Jeune Fille Dans Une Vasque oil on paper laid down on panel 7 x 9in. (19 x 24.1cm.) PROVENANCE Ogden L.Mills; sale, Parke Bernet, New York, April 5, 1938, lot 147 as Odalisque Anon.; sale, O. Rundle Gilbert Estate Auctioneer, New York, no. 323 LITERATURE H. Delaborde and J. Godd. Oeuvre de Paul Delaroche. Paris, 1858, pl.39. NOTES Paul Delaroche was the son of an art dealer and nephew of a conservator at the Bibliotheque Nationale and later married Horace Vernet's daughter. Highly respected in his lifetime, Delaroche's studio drew many of the leading artists of the next generation as students, such as Jean-Lon Grme, Thomas Couture and Charles-Francois Daubigny. He studied under Baron Gros from whom he learned the accurate treatment of historical and mythological subjects. In 1822 he submitted his first entries to the Salon and earned the attention of Gricault who took him under his wing, even asking him on his deathbed to help finish two of his own 1824 Salon entries. After Delaroche's 1831 Salon entry Les Enfants d'Edouard (Muse du Louvre, Paris, he was made a member of the Institute des Beaux Arts and the following year he became a professor. During his lifetime, his paintings sold for fantastic sums; one painting that sold for 10,000 francs in 1835 ( Assassinat du Duc de Guise ) was resold in 1852 for 52,500 francs just four years before Delaroche's death. This painting was produced in 1843 during Delaroche's year-long sojourn in Italy. It was a study for another of the same subject in the collection of the Muse des Beaux-Arts, Besancon, completed by the artist the following year. The Besancon version has the addition of a lyre behind the fountain and it has been suggested that the woman may be Sappho. The allegorical figure and etheral mood, while seemingly unusual for Delaroche, foreshadow the neoclassical and romantic characteristics of the work of his own students such as Grme, and of the next generation of French Salon artists, such as Bouguereau and Cabanel. Mills began collecting in the 1890s, and the family's collection reflected current fashionable taste at the turn of the century in America. At the time it was sold in 1938 at their house sale at 4 East 69th Street, New York, this painting was hanging alongside Grme's oil sketch Diogenes and His Lamp.

The award of second place however, was not without controversy. First place was awarded to the painter Murat and there were those who felt the judgement was unjust. The critic Albert Boime advanced the theory that Murat was honored because he had persevered through many years of competitions without winning and was soon to be too old for eligibility. Delcluze too found special merit in Couture's work, writing in Le Journal des Dbats (loc. cit), : "Le tableau de M. Couture est digne d'une mention toute particulire. La tte de son No, tenant sa femme, vers la gauche de la composition, forme aussi un groupe fort bon. En somme, cet ouvrage est le seul u il y ait une ide qui vivifie tous les dtails: on y voit briller cette joie douce, ce contentement intrieure et reconnaissant que l'on prouve quand, un grand danger et un long orage, succde le calme des sens et de l'me." Commenting on the competition itself he continued, that any young artist, exhibiting for the first time would be happy if their painting was as good as that of M. Couture. The dialogue surrounding the work however, was not always consistent as there were negative critics such as the one who disagreed with Couture's placement of God in Journal des Artistes (loc.cit) and another who disagreed with the moment depicted by Couture in L'Artiste (loc.cit). In the present work, the traditional theme coupled with the bold brushstrokes and palette of the present work is consistent with Couture's best known works. Couture often made refernces to old master paintings while creating purely contemporary works, rooted in the Romanticism and Classicism of the day. Thomas Couture was a student of Baron Gros and of Paul Delaroche. He exhibited reguarly at the Salon, winning a third-class medal in 1844 and a first class medal in 1848. Couture also became a chevalier of the Lgion d'Honneur in 1848 and received a gold medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition of 1855.

Description: Head studies of monks oil on canvas 93/4 x 123/4 in. (24.7 x 32.3 cm.) NOTES We are grateful to M.Jocelyn Reboul for confirming the authenticity of this lot. M.Reboul has suggested that these heads were executed after two studies which Delaroche made during a visit to Italy in 1843. He considered that these were probably painted later in France and may be studies for the 'Hemicycle' of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris.

Description: Delaroche was born July 17, 1797 to a family with artistic interest: his father was an art dealer, his uncle was a conservator at the Bibliotheque Nationale, and his brother was a minor History painter in his own right. Delaroche joined the studio of Baron Gros in 1818 and over the ensuing years came to distinguish himself as one of 19th Century France's most venerable History painters of the "juste milieu". Reflecting a contemporary fascination with themes of modern and post-antique history, he turned to subjects which reflected the triumphs and trials of foreign national heroes with a particular focus on the history of the Elizabethan Age whose parallels to comparable events of usurpation in French political history were not unlost on his audience. An artist of considerable international reputation in his lifetime, Delaroche married the daughter of Horace Vernet and taught a younger generation of artists including Gerome, Couture and Daubigny. Delaroche painted "Les Enfants d'Edouard" in 1830 at the age of thirty-two and submitted it the following year to the Salon where it was enormously well received by Musset, Gros and Ingres and by the general public who clamored to see the picture. Set in 1483 in the Tower of London, the painting depicts the moment before the young King Edward V and his brother Richard, the Duke of York, are to be assassinated at the order of their ambitious uncle Richard III, the Duke of Gloucester. It is a psychologically sobering study of the minutes before their execution which evokes an anxious and suspenseful mood. By intimating danger through gesture and palette rather than illustrating it directly, Delaroche enhances the potency of the dramatic moment. This is furthered by clever manipulation of compositional devises such as cropping in order to give the painting the impression of being photographic. To enhance this air of veracity, Delaroche scrupulously reconstructs minute details. He idealizes neither the characters nor the setting in which they are placed: the King's features reflect his recorded illness while period furnishings, costumes, and jewelry are meticulously replicated to further make the scene historically accurate and believable. Indeed, so convincing was Delaroche in his attention to verisimilitude that many critics were prompted to comment that he was as much a Historian as a painter. Considering the very favorable reception of this picture, it is not surprising that Delaroche chose to paint other versions. The 1831 Salon entry now hangs in the Louvre while another version belongs to the Wallace Collection in London. Our versions of Les Enfants d'Edouard has been seen by Dr. Norman D. Ziff who feels that it was certainly painted by Paul Delaroche on or about the same time as the version in the Louvre dated 1830. We are grateful to Dr. Ziff for his assistance in cataloguing this painting. ~~Christie's warranty of authenticity near the front of this catalogue does not apply to works executed before 1870. Accordingly, Christie's and Seller assume no risk or responsibility for the authenticity of authorship of this lot.

EXHIBITION Paris, Palais des Beaux-Arts, Exposition des oeuvres de Paul Delaroche, 1857, no. 33. NOTES Paul Delaroche began his career by studying landscape painting under the guidance of Watelet. In 1817, Delaroche moved to the atelier of Gros, an established history painter. It was this genre of painting that led to Delaroche's great popular success, most notably with the 1831 Salon entry Les enfants d'Edouard, now in the Louvre. His prodigious output comprised not only well-loved historical tales painted with great attention to detail, but a multitude of portraits and religious subjects. The pathos of Christ in the Garden of Olives appealed to the romantic sensibility of the first half of the 19th century. Delacroix painted the subject for the Church of St. Paul-St. Louis, commissioned by the State in 1824, as did Chass‚riau who executed a painting of the same theme also for the ministry of the interior for the Church of St. Jean d'Angely. Delaroche narrates with economy and simplicity of execution. In the present painting of 1845, using a composition already established bythe Renaissance, Delaroche places Christ on a rocky eminence with the three disciples (Peter with his grey hair and beard, James with dark hair and beard and John, the youngest, with his long hair) asleep below. He has also added the menacing outline of a serpent about to strike - symbol of the temptation and a reminder of the Garden of Eden. As pointed out by Jocelyne Reboul, this early symbolic composition foreshadows Delaroche's late major work of 1855, Une Martyre au temps de Diocletien now in the Louvre. An engraving of Christ in the Garden of Olives has been executed by Jules Franois ( Expositions de Paul Delaroche - Explications de tableaux, dessins, aquarelles et gravures, op. cit., p. 38).

Description: French 1819-85 diana and her nymphs surprised by actaeon signed l.r. oil on canvas 95.5 by 134.5cm., 37I by 53in. Armand Cambon was born in Montauban and trained at the Ecole de Beaux-Arts from 1839 under Ingres. Although he was also taught by Paul Delaroche and later Picot, it was the restrained classicism of Ingres and David that proved the strongest influence on the young artist. One of Ingres' most talented pupils, Cambon went on to become his teacher's friend, the executor of his will and his spiritual inheritor. He exhibited at the Salon from 1846-1884, specialising in portraits, biblical and mythological subjects and genre scenes. His works were praised by contemporary critics such as Theophile Gautier, who wrote of one of his works in La Presse, 2 June 1852, '(Cambon) ne neglige pas les emmanchements et soigne les extremites de ses figures. Il dessine et modele tres finement, et reste harmonieux dans sa sobriete et son coloris plein de renoncement. The artist also had affinities with paintings directly after nature, and was attracted to the work of the Barbizon painters. So skillful was he in his portrayal of landscape that Ingres asked Cambon to provide views of Pibrac for the background of his Sainte Germaine cousin of Pibrac, painted in 1856 for the Church of Saint-Etienne de Sapiac, Montauban (see Georges Wildenstein, Ingres, London 1956 p. 221, no. 278, illustrated). Cambon later played a crucial role in promoting the legacy of Ingres as the first director of the Musee Ingres. He catalogued 4000 drawings for a descriptive inventory of Ingres' oeuvre. He also built up the Museum's collection of paintings. This painting is probably that exhibited at the Salon of 1861, believed lost. A study for this painting is in the inventory of the Musee Ingres, Montauban. Exhibited: (Probably) Salon of 1861, no. 504.

Description: Portrait de la marquise d'Aoust, nee de Sayve, assise sur un Canape signe et date "Edouard - Dubufe./1857." huile sur toile, non reentoile 130 x 97,5 cm. PROVENANCE Reste chez les descendants de la famille d'Aoust jusqu'a nos jours Le present portrait date de 1847 est comparable a celui de Madame C., conserve au Musee des Beaux-Arts de Strasbourg, E. Breon, Claude-Marie, Edouard et Guillaume Dubufe, Portraits d'un siecle d'elegance Parisienne, Paris, 1988, p.167. Dans ces deux portraits qu'il executa la meme annee, le peintre donna a ses modeles une attitude indentique en reprenant un canape et un coussin similaries. Second peintre de la dynastie Dubufe, eleve de son pere et de Paul Delaroche qui l'influence dans les portraits jusqu'en 1850, Edouard Dubufe obtient la consecration en executant deux portraits de l'imperatrice Eugenie, conserves au Musee National du Chateau de Compiegne et au Musee du Chateau de Versailles. C'est le debut d'une longue carriere officielle jalonnee de recompenses, durant laquelle il rivalisa avec Winterhalter, comme l'affirmait en 1855 Delecluze: "L'empire du portrait est partage entre Monsieur Dubufe et Monsieur Winterhalter, deux hommes de talent," E. J. Delecluze, les Beaux-Arts en 1855, Paris, 1856, p.277.
