Description: Oil on canvas France, Pontoise, around 1890 Luis Jiménez y Aranda (1845-1928) - Spanish painter Signed lower right: 'Luis Jiménez - Pontoise' Measurements in frame: 76 x 57.5 cm Good condition Provenance: from a Southern German private collection The paintings showing farm girls in Pontoise count among the most sought after by Luis Jiménez y Aranda; the auction record for such an artwork stands at 140,000 Euros. This fine oil painting by the Spanish painter Luis Jiménez y Aranda shows a young girl picking cherries. On a slightly sloping meadow, with a view of a hilly landscape in the background, there is a great cherry tree yielding plenty fruit. The young girl is wearing a traditional costume and has bent one of the lower branches towards her. Two baskets filled with already picked cherries stand ready at her side and a third one at her feet is also almost full. Behind the tree there is a ladder leaning against its trunk, where a second girl is also picking cherries. All that can be seen of her is a heavy shoe and a blue-brown skirt, wheras the rest is veiled by the tree's leaves and fruit. Luis Jiménez was especially successful as a historical painter, but also followed the Spanish art movement of the Costumbrismo, which intended to show the customs and traditions of the people. As such, he was probably as close to French realism as he was to impressionism - and 'Cherry Picking' shows influences from all these movements. The painting 'Cherry Picking' by Louis Jiménez Aranda is in good condition. The colour is protected by a varnish and shows a bit craquelure as well as some traces of framing. The painting is signed in the lower right: 'Luis Jiménez - Pontoise'. It measures 76 x 57.4 cm in its frame and 65 x 46 without it. The recent frame shows signs of wear, especially at the corners. Louis Jiménez Aranda (1845-1928) Louis Jiménez Aranda was born in Sevilla to a family of artists. He took painting lessons from his older brother José Jiménez y Aranda (1837-1903) before he studied at the Academia de Bellas Artes de Santa Isabel de Hungría in Sevilla, like before his brother had. After a short stay in Rome, Louis Jiménez Aranda moved to Pontoise near Paris and took on French citizenship. He was already exhibiting his artworks at the Salon de Paris when he took part at the World Fair in Paris and Chicago. At the same time, he was also exhibited at national Spanish exhibitions and received, amongst other awards, the 1892 gold medal for the painting La visita del médico . He focused mainly on historical painting but was also part of the so-called Costumbrismo movement, which sought to depict the customs and traditions of society in a realistic way. Luis was influenced by his elder brother for parts of his life, but never copied him.View additional info
