A French sculpted white marble group of the Virgin and Child in Gothic style

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A French sculpted white marble group of the Virgin and Child in Gothic style, possibly Ile-de-France, probably 14th century, portrayed standing, wearing a crown and loosely draped, the Christ Child held in her left hand and supported by her right hand, 56cm high The arrangement of the drapery in the example offered here is similar to that of 14th century ivory and also boxwood examples, where the drapery falls in vertical folds rather than being more horizontal, giving a more slender and almost languid look See Sotheby's London, Mediaeval, Renaissance and Later Works of Art, 8th and 9th July 1981, lot 232, for a comparable boxwood example. The type of crown, the inclination of the Virgin's head, the angles at which the slippers protrude beneath the drapery, as well as the amount of shoe that is showing are all also closely comparable, as is the positioning of the Virgin's hands in supporting the Christ Child As far as the drapery is concerned, comparison can also be made with an ivory example in the Victoria & Albert Museum, this one being catalogued as dating to 1300 - 1320 and of Champagne or Burgundian origin Provenance: Property from a private collection, London

After Michangelo Buonarotti, , possibly workshop of Massimiliano Soldani-Benzi

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: After Michangelo Buonarotti, (called Michelangelo, 1475 - 1564), possibly workshop of Massimiliano Soldani-Benzi, a bronze group of Bacchus and a young faun, early 18th century, portrayed nude and standing, Bacchus with grapevines adorning his hair, (lacking right arm), the group atop a square section polished stone, possibly petrified wood veneered plinth with moulded base, the bronze 23.5cm high, the height overall 32cm Note: Bacchus was executed in 1496-1497 in marble, and is a somewhat over life-size depiction of the Roman god of wine in a reeling pose suggestive of drunkenness. Commissioned by Raffaele Riario, a high-ranking Cardinal and collector of antique sculpture, it was rejected by him and was bought instead by Jacopo Galli, Riario s banker and a friend to Michelangelo. Along with the Pietà the Bacchus is one of only two surviving sculptures from the artist's first period in Rome In 1695, Prince Johann Adam Andreas I was approached by Massimiliano Soldani Benzi with an offer to copy in bronze Michelangelo's Bacchus. The Grand Duke Francesco de Medici had acquired the sculpture in 1570, and exhibited it along with the famous antiquities in his collection in the new Uffizi gallery in Florence. This was a clear statement of the particular esteem in which this figure, now famous, was held. Possibly it was not a good idea to retain the scale, as Michelangelo s modelling, entirely appropriate to the fifteenth-century tradition, did not satisfy the patron in Soldani Benzi s faithfully executed bronze version. The prince, who appreciated the aesthetic of Antique sculpture, made no secret of his disappointment, and called the figure a badly designed work ... in an ugly pose, very bad idea, also dry See David Ekserdjian (Ed), Bronze, Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2012, for a discussion of Soldani Benzi's decision to recreate the Bacchus -a single figure during the Baroque period when the emphasis had moved strongly towards more complicated groups. The Soldani Benzi bronze is now held by the Princely Collections, Vaduz, Liechtenstein Provenance: Property from a private collection, London

Paduan School, first half 16th century, possibly workshop of Andrea Briosco

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Paduan School, first half 16th century, possibly workshop of Andrea Briosco, called Riccio, (Italian 1470 - 1532), a bronze figural candleholder cast as a kneeling satyr, portrayed horned and bearded with open mouth, kneeling on his right knee, the pricket issuing above a cornucopia held aloft in his raised left hand, the triangular base with scrolling foliate motifs cast in recessed low relief, on three ball and point feet, 24cm high Provenance: Property from a private collection, London Note: Similar examples are held in various noted collections including the Thyssen-Bornemisza, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Frick. The Frick Collection notes that These satyrs, serving as purveyors of candlesticks and ink pots, belong to a large group of similar but never identical figures, the best of which have been attributed to Riccio. Others of varying style and quality are more clearly derivative and probably were made by Paduan imitators, possibly even by a posthumous continuation of Riccio's shop In the example offered here it is almost certain that an inkwell of some type, probably in the form of a basin or a basket would have originally rested beneath the satyr's right hand For similar examples, see Irene Martin (Ed.), The Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, Renaissance and later Sculpture, Sotheby's Publications, 1992, p 212. Wilhelm Bode, The Italian Bronze Statuettes of the Renaissance, M.A.S. de Reinis, New York, 1980, plates XLII, XLIII and CCXLII Sotheby's London, Mediaeval, Renaissance and Later Works of Art, 1st July 1974, lot 88

A bronze model of a young man, sometimes called Tobias

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A bronze model of a young man, sometimes called Tobias(?), possibly workshop of Andrea Riccio, first half 16th century, portrayed standing and attired in a tunic and boots, a pack on his back, the cudgel held over his left shoulder with a socket at the upper end, the bronze 17cm high, atop a later turned and ebonised wood socle, 24cm high overall A very similar model is held at the Berlin-Dahlem Staatliche Museen. In that example, whilst the posture, the inclination of the head, the left hand grasping the cudgel which holds his pack, the folds in the tunic and even the rather flat modeling of the skin surfaces are almost identical, there nonetheless remain slight differences. In the model offered here the booted feet are parallel to each other whiilst in the Staatliche Museen example the stance differs with the feet at an angle to each other. The museum example also has the lowered right hand as open, whereas the present example has the hand holding a fish hanger, an implement portrayed by Antonio del Pollaiolo, Pia Moeller and others in pictorial representations Comparative Literature: Wilhelm Bode, The Italian Bronze Statuettes of the Renaissance, M.A.S. de Reinis, New York, 1980, p 91 and illustration 2, plate XXXVI Provenance: Property from a private collection, London

This form of cabinet was often made under Portuguese patronage in India. Closely related examples exist in different sizes and various types of decoration. The most distinctive feature of this type of cabinet is the sculptural treatment of the legs. The current example of the body of a woman with a scaled lower body. These have been identified as Hindu snake divinities that are considered auspicious and believed to provide protection from danger. The current example appears particularly unusual in its adoption of the open sided under-tier in comparison to other known examples that most often incorporate a pair of deep drawers that can have a more cumbersome appearance. For related examples see Christies, King Street, London, 31st March 2009, lot 218 (£49,250) and Christies, King Street, London, 10th June 2015, lot 19.

E-534/51228-X, held by the Getty Institute Research Library, Los Angeles, CA Loans : The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts 15th May 1963 - 2nd August 1963 Maison Blanche 12th September 1963 - 2nd October 1963 The Centre for Outer American Relations 11th September 1967- 4th October 1967 Robert Woods Bliss (1875-1962 ) R. W. Bliss, an American diplomat who later cofounded the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, Washington D.C., was educated at J. P. Hopkinson s School in Boston before attending Harvard College and gaining a B.A. in 1900. After embarking on his diplomatic career including a posting as secretary to the Governor of Puerto Rico, U.S. Consul in Venice, second secretary to the U.S. embassy in St Petersburg and secretary of the legation in Brussells, Bliss married Mildred Barnes in 1908. His Foreign service continued with successive appointments in Buenos Aires, Paris and the Hague. Together with his wife, he was instrumental in founding the American Field Ambulance Service in Paris during 1914 to which they supplied twenty three ambulances and three staff cars. In addition they opened and equipped the ' Service de Distribution Amé ricaine', which distributed medical supplies and clothing. Whilst in Paris their circle of friends included Walter Gay, Edith Wharton and Royall Tyler. After the end of the First World War, Robert became chief of the Division of Western European Affairs at the Washington State Department in 1920 which was the same year he acquired his future home Dumbarton Oaks. He followed this with a r o le assisting the Secretary of State before becoming U.S. Envoy to Sweden and later U.S Ambassador to Argentina. The latter appointment occupied him for six years until his retirement from the Foreign Service in 1933. Bliss returned to the State Department during the Second World War (1942-1945) during which time he arranged a succession of important diplomatic meetings at Dumbarton Oaks in 1944 known as the 'Dumbarton Oaks Conference' whose delegates collaborated over proposals for the foundation of an organisation to maintain world peace and security. The culmination of these meetings was the 'United Nations Charter' which was adopted in San Francisco in 1945. In later life Bliss held a number of senior positions with American art institutions, museums and political organisations including the American Federation of Arts, the Smithsonian Art Commission, the Carnegie Institution and the American Foreign Service Association. He also received honorary Doctor of Law degrees from the universities at Syracuse, Harvard and Missouri. In 1954 he was among five ex-diplomats co-signing a letter of protest at Senator Joseph McCarthy s attacks on the Foreign Service. The Blisses had no children and Robert died in Washington D.C. in 1962 at the age of 86. Dumbarton Oaks The land on which the present house is situated originally formed the Rocks of Dumbarton grant made by Queen Anne in 1702 to Colonel Ninian Beall. Almost a century later in 1801 , William Hammond Dorsey (1764-1818) built his house and an orangery on the estate. What now constitutes the central block of the building was subsequently extended during the mid-19th century by the new owner Edward Magruder Linthicum after which the house was re-named The Oaks. In 1891 Linthicum sold the property to Henry F. Blount. The Chairs Comparative Literature: The Knight of Glin and Jame Peill, Irish Furniture, 2007 This distinctive set of George II walnut chairs exhibit an unusual combination of features which do not appear to be clearly identifiable with the work of a particular maker or regional origin. Whilst the idiosyncratic paw feet have affinities with those on a documented group of Irish tables and chairs (see Peill and Glin op. cit. pp. 106-119), the scrolls to the inside of their 'paws' are without parallel in this most recent survey of Irish furniture. Furthermore the turned and square H-shaped stretchers contrast with the more prevalent flat H-shaped stretchers found on Irish chairs of the second quarter of the 18th century. Other atypical details of the present lot's design are the herringbone bandings to the splats, the finely carved foliate mouldings surrounding the backs and the gadrooned splat shoes. Please note that in addition to the published footnotes for this lot, it came to light since the catalogue was printed that the Grandmother of the present owner purchased the current set of eight chairs from Mallet Antiques in 1988. A copy of the receipt for the purchase of the chairs in 1988 is available.
