EDWARD BURNE-JONES (1833-1898)

Estimate: €25,000 - €30,000

Description: EDWARD BURNE-JONES (1833-1898) EDWARD BURNE-JONES (1833-1898) Etude de tête d'ange, circa 1890 pour la tapisserie « The Holy Grail » Crayon sur papier 36 x 25 cm Provenance Collection particulière, Palerme. Acquis en 1986 par l’actuel propriétaire à la galerie David Shaff Fine Arts, Etats-Unis Le dessin aurait été donné par l’artiste à son ami Dante Gabriel Rossetti puis par descendance. Nous remercions Madame Elisa Korb qui nous a confirmé l’authenticité de cette oeuvre. L’oeuvre sera incluse dans le catalogue raisonné actuellement en préparation par Madame Elisa Korb. La tapisserie « The Holy Grail » (Le Saint Graal) tissée par Morris & Co à partir de 1895 est composée de six panneaux illustrant la légende du roi Arthur à la quête du Saint Graal. Le panneau qui nous intéresse « La Vision du Saint Graal » est présenté en 1893 à la « Arts & Crafts Exhibition Society » à Londres, avant d’être accroché avec les cinq autres panneaux dans la salle à manger du commanditaire jusqu’à sa mort dans les années 20. L’ensemble est ensuite vendu et dispersé. « La Vision du Saint-Graal » est aujourd’hui conservé au Birmingham Museum à Londres. Les cartons pour les personnages sont réalisés par Edward Burne-Jones. On reconnaît Sir Galahad agenouillé devant le Saint Graal posé sur l’autel derrière lequel trois anges veillent. Notre dessin est préparatoire pour la tête de l’ange situé à l’extrémité à droite. Madame Elisa Korb connaît des études pour les têtes des deux autres anges.
