Charles Sims (British, 1873-1928) The Wood beyond the World, 1913 signed lower right

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

Description: Charles Sims (British, 1873-1928) The Wood beyond the World, 1913 signed lower right "Sims" oil on canvas h:69 w: 101 cm Provenance: Private Collection, Cambridge. Charles Sims enrolled at the South Kensington College of Art in 1890 before moving to Paris for two years at the Académie Julian. Needing a bursary to support himself, he moved back to London and enrolled at the Royal Academy Schools in 1893. From 1896, he developed an increasingly successful career, first exhibiting "The Vine" at the Royal Academy in 1896, and selling another painting "Childhood" to the Musée du Luxembourg. An expert at portraying sunlit landscapes, he specialised in society portraits and neo-classical fantasies, typically idealised scenes of women, children or fairies in outdoor settings. In 1906 a one-man show at the Leicester Galleries brought him critical and financial success, allowing him to relocate to rural Fittleworth. In 1910 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Watercolour Society, and in 1915 to the Royal Academy. "The Wood beyond the World" represents an idyllic scene celebrating springtide and the optimism of life. It is reminiscent of both "Primavera" by Botticelli and the work of Puvis de Chavannes. The children portray the chastity of youth, whilst alluding to pagan traditions and symbolism. The group of three female figures are the three Graces from classical mythology, whilst the central woman holding a child portrays the Madonna. A version of the present painting is in the collection of Tate Modern.

Condition Report: Under UV there does appear to be large areas of retouching, notably in the sky. On the surface the retouching is translucent and has been applied up and around the trees and other features of the scene. Some of the figures also have retouching in their draperies, reinforcing these areas. Retouching has been applied around the signature at the bottom. The painting is unlined, there are signs of mould growth visible on the reverse. It is not immediately obvious why the retouching has been applied in such a wholesale manner. Some areas of original paint show signs of wear and abrasion, the tops of the canvas weave are exposed in these areas, but the translucent retouching does not completely cover areas of abrasion. It may have been applied to even out the appearance of the work. It would be very interesting to compare this to the version in Tate in terms of painting technique and condition.
