Provenance: Paramount Studios.

Though rather hard it is bright and clear, the figures tell the story with completeness and are artistically treated." A review from the Art Journal, 1866, pg.166: "Reynolds' first sketch (394) is better than "Competitive Examination" the arched and columned corridor is well painted" Eyre Crowe was a Victorian painter of genre and historical subjects.

Lot 1228: André Derain, 1880 - 1954 Le Modèle, Oil on canvas

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

Description: André Derain, 1880 - 1954 Le Modèle, Oil on canvas (unlined), Provenance: Private Collection, Paris, Painted c. 1924-5, A certificate of authenticity from the Comité Derain, Paris will be made available to the purchaser. This work will be included in a forthcoming Catalogue Raisonné on the artist. The model depicted is most probably Rogi Andre (1905-1970), who posed frequently for Derain and Picasso. Derain was born near Paris. When attending the classes of Eugene Carriere, he met Henri Matisse. In 1905 the two artists became the founders of the Fauve movement. In 1906 he travelled to London and painted a series of views of The Thames. Using vivid colours and vibrant brush-strokes, these works became his most admired images. The Dealer Kahnweiler bought his entire out-put, which gave Derain financial security. In 1907 he moved to Montmartre to be near his friend Picasso. Here his style changed and he painted with a more muted palette. In 1920 he visited Italy and was greatly influenced by the painters of the High Renaissance. His works at this time became known as his "Classical" period. In the 1920s he exhibited in London, Berlin and New York. Derain painted landscapes, still-lifes and nudes. A collection of his nude paintings can be seen at the Musée de l'Orangerie, Paris. His work can be seen in the important museums of the world: Paris, London, Saint Petersburg, and New York. 36 x 28¾ inches 92 x 73 cm.
