Auguste Herbin, Hache

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: Auguste Herbin (1882-1960) was a leading figure in the development of geometric abstraction in Europe. He began as a Fauve, showing with Matisse and Derain at the Salon des Indépendants in 1906, and in 1909 moved to the Bateau Lavoir, where he met Picasso, Braque and Gris. By 1910, HerbinÍs colorful proto cubist works were being shown beside paintings by Leger, Gleizes, and Metzinger and in 1918, the reknown dealer Léonce Rosenberg gave him a solo exhibition at the Galerie l'Effort Moderne. In 1931, Herbin's commitment to abstraction and non-objective art culminated in his founding with de Stijl artist Vantongerloo, the wide-ranging Abstraction-Création Group and in 1949 to his publication of L'art non-figuratif non-objectif. The latter included Herbin's formulation of his "Plastic Alphabet," a system of correspondences between geometric shapes, colors, letters, and musical notes. This universal language animates the vibrant oil paintings and gouaches of Herbin's mature period (c. 1945-1960), in which hard-edged triangles, rectangles and circles of pure, unmodulated color are distributed in registers that organize the picture field. Pictorial structure and vivid color become inseparable. Herbin influenced a wide range of artists and sculptors working in geometric abstract idioms from the 1940s through 1970. Artists as diverse as Victor Vasarely and Jean Tinguely have claimed his works as inspiration for their own, and recent investigations into post-war European geometric abstraction show renewed interest in Herbin's role.

Frederick Arthur Bridgman, Dancing Woman

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: Born in Alabama and initially studying art in New York City, in 1867, Bridgman moved to Paris to study under the noted academic painter Jean-Leon Gerome (1824-1904). He was deeply influenced by Gerome's precise draftsmanship, smooth finishes, and concern for Middle-Eastern themes. Later, Bridgeman would be known as "the American Gerome” while emphasizing bright colors, painterly brushwork, and a more atmospheric landscape. He found success and popularity among collectors in the US and Europe winning the Cross of the Legion d’Honneur in 1877. Bridgman made his first trip to North Africa between 1872 and 1874, dividing his time between Algeria and Egypt. There he executed approximately three hundred sketches, which became the source material for several later oil paintings. Additional visits to the region throughout the 1870s and 1880s allowed him to amass a collection of costumes, architectural pieces, and objets d'art, which often appear in his paintings. Amusingly, John Singer Sargent noted that Bridgman's overstuffed studio, along with the Eiffel Tower, were Paris's must-see attractions.

Theodore Rousseau, The Hamlet behind the Trees

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: Thought of as the father of the Barbizon school, Rousseau was a strong proponent of working outdoors, from nature. Both Rousseau’s painting and drawing style reveal his devotion to the 17th century Dutch masters, the atmospheric effects of the romantic tradition of Constable and Delacroix, as well as his interest in realism. According to Robert Herbert in Barbizon Revisted (Yale University Press, 1962), it was Rousseau’s devotion to the observation of nature and its realistic depiction that defined his work as that of a precursor of the Impressionist movement. However, unlike many of the Impressionists, Rousseau typically began his work with drawing. Always eager to study nature, he built an easel which allowed him to stretch paper for drawing outside, invented new ways of priming paper, and constructed a lean-to which allowed him to work outside and observe the weather.

Georges Lemmen, Portrait du Père de Lemmen

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: From 1887 to 1892, Lemmen regularly drew his family members seated in a dark room illumined by a hanging lamp in their apartment on the Rue Verte, Brussels. This group included the artist’s sister Julie, their mother, father and grandmother. Frederic Lemmen, the father of the painter, died on October 30, 1897 at the age of 77. His face is well known through lithographs, drawings and paintings dating from 1897 and after. Our drawing is closest in composition to the painting Le Pere de l’ artiste which dates from 1887 and to the lithograph which shows his father looking to the left and without his glasses.

Jules Breton, La Femme au Rouet (Woman at the Spinning Wheel)

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: This drawing is a study for the painting "Le dernier rayon," 1885. According to Anne Bourrut Lacouture, author of the forthcoming catalogue raisonne on Breton, the model for this drawing was an old woman from Courrières known as “The old Colette.” From The Realist Tradition: French Painting and Drawing, 1830-1900, edited by Gabriel P. Weisberg: Spinning was one of the “cottage industries” that had persisted in the provinces for generations. Even the older women who were no longer able to work in the fields thus continued to contribute to the well-being of the family, either by providing clothing or income from the sale of the yarn itself. Woman at the Spinning Wheel, the image of the older woman that Jules Breton depicted seated in the dooryard busy at her wheel until the “last rays of sunshine,” was a common enough scene in Artois, for it was a way of life that continued in the provinces well into the nineteenth century, virtually without change. Even late in his career, Breton maintained the same methods of working as in his earliest compositions. He still prepared a series of drawings from life of individual figures, which he then used as the basis for preliminary oil sketches. After he studied and portrayed each figure carefully—both in black and white and in color—he was ready to sketch the entire composition, integrating the many individual scenes into the whole. The preliminary charcoal sketch of the local model Colette that was begun 24 March 1885 documents one of Breton’s preparatory efforts for the oil canvas The Last Ray of Sunshine: Evening in an Artois Village. The oil painting, which he completed in March 1885, appeared in the 1885 Salon and later reached America through the joint efforts of Goupil and Company in Paris and Knoedler and Company of New York. The current whereabouts of the painting are unknown.

Pierre Bonnard, Nu debout (Standing Nude)

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: Pierre Bonnard, along with Vuillard and Maurice Denis, was a founding member of the Nabis Painters, a group of artists who in the 1890’s promoted the notion of the flatness of the pictorial surface. His abstraction of painterly forms led to development as a consummate colorist. He always worked closely from drawings done from life, commonly painting landscapes or his hypochondriac wife, Marthe. Photos of the artist at work show walls lined with drawings which he would use to construct his paintings.

Pierre Bonnard, Nu a la salle de bain

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: Pierre Bonnard, along with Vuillard and Maurice Denis, was a founding member of the Nabis Painters, a group of artists who in the 1890’s promoted the notion of the flatness of the pictorial surface. His abstraction of painterly forms led to development as a consummate colorist. He always worked closely from drawings done from life, commonly painting landscapes or his hypochondriac wife, Marthe. Photos of the artist at work show walls lined with drawings which he would use to construct his paintings. In many of Bonnard’s paintings of interiors, he uses mirrors to expand or abstract the space. In this drawing, he experiments with a mirror and a pile of clothes to create a separate space deep in the picture which is not real, but merely a reflection of the action behind the artist or viewer. There is a similar view of this space in "Large Yellow Nude," 1931.

Pierre Bonnard, Trees in a Park (Arbres dans un parc (Verso Study of an Interior))

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: Bonnard was a prolific painter and printmaker and a founding member of the avant-garde, Post-Impressionist group Les Nabis. His unique style is characterized by an unusual vantage point, and radiating, voluptuous color. For Bonnard, the act of painting was an investigation of the physical substance of paint, and relationships between color and light throughout the canvas rectangle. Bonnard painted the familiar: rooms, objects, models, and the rituals of daily life - taking tea, feeding the cat, tending to the dinner table. His paintings began as small drawings and watercolors made on the pages of tiny diaries, which he worked up in the studio, often with pencil and gouache. The paintings developed slowly and over time. Rather than the object itself, it is the memory of the object that Bonnard captures.

Theodore Rousseau, Les Gorges d'Apremont

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: Rousseau was the leader of a group of artists known as the "Barbizon School," who worked directly from nature, and especially the landscape around Barbizon, a rugged terrain with majestic trees, forest gorges, rocky ground and open fields. The Apremont Gorge is a rocky area near Fontainebleau which Rousseau painted as early as 1849 and throughout his career. Amand-Durand, an important engraver in Rousseau's time, wrote about Gorges d'Apremont avant la plantation des pins, 1849 (Schulman no. 395): "The Apremont Gorge was, in 1848, a vast desert circle of rocks piled together by floods, where several birch trees shot up, with effort, between the thin heather. The character there was savage and lonely to excess. Rousseau offered up the commanding edge, the ancient place and its imposing poetry at evening, in dismal weather."

John Gibson, Florence

Ships From: New York , NY US

Description: From The New York Times, January 2006: John Gibson exhibits "large-scale paintings of gaily decorated balls, and nothing else. This has been his subject for years. He has turned from oils to watercolors, with wonderful results. Rich, layered washes of luscious color form backgrounds for his burnished subjects. Sometimes arranged in gravity-defying geometric piles, at other times in a straight line, they seem to turn as you watch them. The paintings are not so much about the subject as about the tricks of getting it right, like playing a piano piece over and over again in search of an unreachable perfection. In the show's statement, Mr. Gibson talks about the exacting medium of watercolor: If I performed well, if I stood correctly, if I held the right brush in the right way, if several hundred moves played out in the right order and in the right way, then just maybe the painting will have a chance to work out."
