Description: The Piping Fisher Boy signed 'John M Swan' (lower right) oil on panel 12 3/8 x 161/2 in. (31.4 x 41.9 cm.) PROVENANCE Humphrey Roberts, by 1897. Edwin Tate, by 1911. with The Fine Art Society, London, from whom acquired by the present owner in 1977. LITERATURE Art Journal, 1894, p. 22. EXHIBITION London, Royal Academy, 1890, no. 465. London, Guildhall, Loan Exhibition, 1897, lent by Humphrey Roberts. Dublin, Loan Exhibition, 1899, lent by Humphrey Roberts. London, Royal Academy, Winter 1911, no. 2, lent by Edwin Tate. All for Love, 1994, no. 53. NOTES Though small in scale this picture was held to be one of Swan's finest works and was much exhibited during his lifetime. Swan is best remembered for his superb depictions of lions, leopards and tigers, executed in rapid pen and wash drawings, pastels, oils and bronze. Having trained at the Lambeth School of Art and the RA Schools, he was introduced in Paris by G‚r“me to the sculptor Fr‚miet. Much of his sculpture was also influenced by the great animalier sculptor, Barye. The present work dates from the most lauded period of Swan's career: The Prodigal Son was bought by the Chantrey Bequest in 1889 and in 1894 he was elected ARA, achieving full membership of the Academy in 1905. He also exhibited at the Grosvenor and New Galleries. Another spectacular example of a male nude beguiling members of the animal kingdom can be found in Orpheus (1896; Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight).

Lot 493: John Macallan Swan

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

Description: English, 1847-1910 a reclining panther signed: J.M.Swan bronze, black patina, with touches of green 5 by 15cm., 2 by 6in. Swan began his training in Lambeth and at the Royal Academy Schools, before continuing his education in France. There he studied under Fremiet and Barye and his animal studies (frequently of cats) clearly show their influence. Swan was also an equally successful animal painter and his bronzes, in their often impressionistic attention to texture, rather than anatomical detail, have often been compared to painting. M.H.Speilmann wrote of Swan's bronzes, of which the present work is a good example: 'They are masterly studies, big and broad in handling...they frequently seem to suggest the painter, as their surface is one of tones as much as simple plains, or light and shade.' Literature: Speilmann pp.66-71.
