Description: Henri REGNAULT (Paris 1843 - 1871 Rueil-Malmaison) Nature morte au fauteuil avec draperie, esquisse Toile 108 x 140 cm Accident Notre tableau est probablement une esquisse préparatoire au tableau conservé au musée de Grenoble. En 1867, Regnault réalise plusieurs grandes natures mortes, sujet qu'il appréciait depuis son enfance avec une prépondérance pour la représentation animalière. L'effet de désordre et d'entassement, mêlant des trophées de chasse et d'armes à de lourdes draperies, amoncelés sur un lourd fauteuil correspond à la description de l'atelier de Regnault faite par Arthur Duparc. Ici les formes et les matières sont matières pour l'artiste à déployer son goût pour la couleur encore influencé par Delacroix, et un traitement des effets anticipant ses futures oeuvres espagnoles.

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

Description: Les Vendanges signed 'G. Clairin' lower left oil on canvas 99 x 64in. (253.4 x 163.8cm.) unframed PROVENANCE Comte Chandon de Briailles Mr. and Mrs. Capon, Paris NOTES Clairin entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1861 where he studied under Isidor Pils and Franois Picot. In 1869 he travelled with his close friend, the painter Henri Regnault to Brittany, Spain and finally Morocco. The Franco-Prussian war was to cut the journey short and Clairin returned to Paris and joined Charles Garnier in designing a program for the decorations of the Paris Opera that was completed in 1874. Following this success he was commissioned to paint murals for various municipal buildings such as the Bourse, the Htel de Ville and the Sorbonne. Clairin established a close friendship with the most famous French actress of her era, Sarah Bernhardt (see lot 78). He painted her portrait numerous times and also depicted her in many of her roles such as: Clopatra, Throigne de Mricourt and Jeanne d'Arc. Les Vendanges and La Moisson (lot 24A) were commissioned by the Comte Chandon de Briailles for the dining room of Mme. Capon's private house in the Rue de la Faisanderie, Paris.

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

Description: French, 1843-71 judith et holophernes oil on canvas 45.5 by 54.5 cm., 18 by 21 1/2 in. Painted between 1867 and 1869 the present work is a preparatory study for the larger composition in the Musee des Beaux-Arts, Marseille. Commander-in-chief of the Assyrian army, Holofernes was ordered by Nebuchadnezzar, ruler of the Babylonian Empire, to regain control of the western nations that formed part of his dominions. In subduing the rebel nations Holofernes destroyed their sanctuaries and proclaimed that Nebuchadnezzar alone should henceforth be worshipped as a god. Affronted and outraged, the Jews prepared for war. Holofernes' subsequent siege of Bethulia was long and drawn out. But on the verge of the town's capitulation to Holofernes' forces, Judith persuaded the people to delay surrender for five days. Virtuous, pious and very beautiful, Judith entered Holofernes'camp where she was brought before him. On the fourth day, captivated by Judith's charms, Holofernes invited her to his tent to seduce her. But after excessive drinking Holofernes fell into a drunken stupor, and Judith cut off his head with his sword. Returning with the head to Bethulia, the Jews displayed it outside the city wall, and the following morning, upon hearing of the death of their commander-in-chief, the Assyrian soldiers dispersed and were chased away by the Bethulians.

Description: Attack on a Moorish palace oil on canvas 291/2 x 223/4 in. (75 x 57.8 cm.) PROVENANCE Galerie Fischer Kiener, Paris. LITERATURE L. Thornton, The Orientalists, Painter-Travellers 1828-1908, Paris, 1983, p. 158 (illustrated in colour). NOTES Battle scenes had an important place throughout the nineteenth century so that Arabian cavalcades, or fantasias, as seen in the art of Regnault or Delacroix, came to represent an icon of a glorious past immortalised by a spectacular episode of passion, bravery and heroism. The artist EugŠne Fromentin best described this genre which found its origin in baroque orientalist paintings: 'Through a haze of dust and burning powder the riders succeeded one another without respite. Imagine the wildest disorder, the most lightning speed, the most dazzling cloaks loosened, the wind blowing through clothes... Give the scene its true calm, fair tone, and perhaps you will be able to discern the sheer joy in the muddle, an intoxicating feast like war - that fabulous show called an Arab fantasia' (quoted in: P. Jullian, The Orientalists European Painters of Eastern scenes, Oxford, 1977, p. 90). Henri Regnault's Attack on a Moorish palace is a spectacular example of the Arab fantasia as described by Fromentin. Regnault was fascinated by the Orient and, in his words, aimed 'to depict the real Moors in the way they used to be, rich and great, both terrifying and voluptuous, the ones that are to be found only in past history'.

GEORGES JULES VICTOR CLAIRIN (FRENCH, 1843-1919) THE SULTAN'S FAVORITES

Lot 74: GEORGES JULES VICTOR CLAIRIN (FRENCH, 1843-1919) THE SULTAN'S FAVORITES

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

Description: signed and dated "G. Clairin/.1875" lower left -- oil on canvas 32 x 26 in. (81 x 66 cm.) On entendait les pas et la voix des gens caches. Tout autour et au-dessus de nous s'agitait une vie invisible,...que la beaute et l'ame de la famille s'etaient refugiees dans ses profondeurs impenetrables, et que le spectacle, c'etait nopus, et que la maison restait un mystere (Edmond de Amico: Les Peintres Orientalistes, L. Thornton, p.21) It was precisley this "mystery", this "invisible life" that fascinated so many orientalist painters. As the women's quarters was the place where no men - and certainly no foreigners - could enter, the portrayal of the harem was an open invitation to the artist's imagination. Here was the perfect foil for an artist who described himself as "...avant tout un fantaisiste - faire tout ce qui me passe dans ma pauvre caboche, et le faire aussi bien qui possible." George Clairin studied alongside Henri Regnault at the Paris Ecole des Beaux-Arts. The two travelled together - first to Brittany, then Spain and finally in 1869 to Morocco, where Clairin discovered a country richer and more exotic than his wildest dreams. The Franco-Prussian war was to cut the journey short and take the life of his friend Regnault. After the war Clairin returned to North Africa before going back to Paris where he joined Charles Garnier in the design and decoration of the Paris Opera (1862-1874). Clairin, a welcome member of the "tout Paris," was also commissioned to paint the murals of various municipal buildings such as the Bourse, the Hotel de Ville and the Sorbonne. Clairin soon took up travelling again through Italy, Spain and North Africa amalgamating his love of theater and his passion for the orient in his paintings. Even his portraits of close friend Sarah Bernhardt have an eastern flavor. In this harem scene of 1875 Clarin combines decorative talent and imagination. Exotic birds in a luxurious cage, the Sultan's favorites lean against the intricately inlaid walls or lie back on satin pillows, pulled down by the very weight of their sensuality, while eunichs and slaves cater to their every need.
