Lot 18: JEAN-HONORE FRAGONARD

by Sotheby's

1993

USA

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

Description: Grasse 1732 - 1806 Paris PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG BOY Oil on canvas, in a painted oval, in a carved and gilt wood frame 39.6 by 31.4 cm.; 15 3/4 by 12 1/2 in. The traditional identification of the sitter as the artist's son Alexandre-Evariste Fragonard remains to be proved, and was doubted by both Cuzin and Rosenberg. If it were correct, the painting would date from circa 1785. Cuzin (see literature) tentatively dates it a little later, to circa 1790, while Rosenberg dates it circa 1780. Provenance: Possibly Carrier, his sale, Paris, 9-10 March 1846, lot 93 or 94; With Clifford Duits, London, 1954; With Hallsborough Gallery, 1956, where bought by the father of the present owner. Exhibited: Berne, Musee des Beaux-Arts, Fragonard, 13 June-29 August 1954, (catalogue by Francois Daulte), no. 13; London, William Hallsborough Gallery, 18 April-23 June 1956. Literature: Connoisseur, April 1956, p. 198, circa 1785, 'a work which invites comparison with Rubens at his best'; B(enedict) N(icolson), reviewing the Hallsborough Gallery exhibition, in the Burlington Magazine, May 1956, p. 181, reproduced fig. 60; J.-P. Cuzin, Jean-Honore Fragonard, 1987, pp. 240, 337, no. 403, reproduced p. 240, fig. 302, p. 337; P. Rosenberg, Tout l'oeuvre peint de Fragonard, 1989, p. ?, no. 360, reproduced.

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

Description: A SHEPHERDESS SEATED WITH SHEEP AND A BASKET OF FLOWERS NEAR A RUM IN A WOODED LANDSCAPE unframed 28 1/4 x 36 3/8 in. (71.8 x 92.5 cm.) PROVENANCE Thomas Edmondson (1765-1836), Baltimore, Maryland His son, Dr. Thomas Edmondson (1808-1836), Baltimore, Maryland His daughter, Mary Edmondson (1846-1920) Her daughters, Ethel and Mary Hough; on the death of the former, sold by order of her executors at her residence, 212 Lambeth Road, Baltimore, by Sam W. Pattison & Co., 13 Oct. 1960, when purchased by the father of the present owners EXHIBITED Baltimore, The Maryland Historical Society, Catalogue of the Paintings, Engravings, etc., at the Picture Gallery of the Maryland Historical Society, 6th Annual Exhibition, 1858, no. 18 or 98, as Boucher (on loan from the estate of Dr. Edmondson) Theophile records that Boucher, spotting the young artist's talent, "prit [Fragonard] immediatement avec lui sans lui demander d'honoraires. II devina qu'il pourrait lui rendre plus d'un service!" No document survives to establish the exact dates of Fragonard's apprenticeship in Boucher's studio but the Goncourt brothers plausibly suggested that it lasted "two or three years" and it is thus assumed to have begun c. 1749/50. Since Fragonard won the Grand Prix of the Academie royale de peinture on 26 August 1752. He subsequently studied at the Ecole royale des eleves proteges before leaving for Rome in October 1756. While Fragonard's three documented works of this period, all of biblical and mythological subjects, do not specifically recall Boucher, a significant group of paintings of pastoral subjects reflect Boucher's style so strongly that they must have been painted in the older artist's studio (see J. P. Cuzin, Jean-Honore Fragonard, Fribourg, 1987, nos. 11-21, 24, 32, 35, 37-38, 40-46 and 50-53; P. Rosenberg, catalogue of the exhibition, Fragonard, Grand Palais, Paris, and Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1987-8, nos. 1-7). Although the dating of these pictures is open to discussion, it is now generally assumed that Fragonard must have painted them secretly for Boucher in the years 1753-56 while he was a student at the Ecole des eleves proteges; the popularity to which their number attests might well explain why Fragonard seems to have felt no urgency to leave for Rome, as Monsieur Jean-Pierre Cuzin has observed (op. cit., p. 27). The present picture and the following lot, hitherto unpublished, may confidently be added to the paintings in this group, with which they present numerous parallels. While the composition of the present present picture recalls (in reverse) that of the Shepherdess in the Milwaukee Art Museum (ibid., no. 41, pl. 33), that of the following lot is even more strongly reminiscent of the Spring in the Hotel Matignon, Paris (ibid., no. 50, pl. 28; Rosenberg, op. cit., p. 51, fig. 1) and (in reverse) of the Jardiniere in a private collection (Cuzin, op. cit., no. 35) in which the same broad-brimmed hat and similarly effusive hollyhocks are depicted. The watering can in the following lot was evidently a studio prop: it recurs in the Jardinier in the Detroit Institute of Arts (Cuzin, op. cit., no. 13; Rosenberg, op. cit., no. 2) and the Jardiniere in a Swiss private collection (Cuzin, op. cit., no. 20; Rosenberg. op. cit., p. 40, fig. 2). The present pictures demonstrate how successfully Fragonard was able to assimilate the manner of Boucher. The present picture corresponds fairly closely with an (upright) engraving by Huquier, plate 4 of his Quatrieme livre de sujets et pastorales, which is captioned "F. Boucher in." (A. Ananoff, Francois Boucher, Geneva. 1976. I, pp. 395-6, fig. 836, and II, p. 16, fig. 920, detail). This indicates either that the painting and engraving both follow a lost drawing by Boucher or that the present picture was taken to be the work of Boucher at the time; Fragonard's Le colin-maillard in the Toledo Museum of Art and La bascule in the Thyssen Bornemisza Collection (Cuzin, op. cit., nos. 43-4, pls. 34-5; Rosenberg, op. cit., nos. 5-6)were both mistakenly engraved as the work of Boucher in 1760. However, as Monsieur Pierre Rosenberg, op. cit., nos. 5-6) were both mistakenly engraved as the work of Boucher in 1760. However, as Monsieur Pierre Rosenberg has emphasised, the paintings in this group "ne sont pas de simples pastiches de Boucher. Deja, la personnalite de Fragonard s'y manifeste, certaines couleurs, les modeles, de tout jeunes adolescents, l'allant des compositions, l'exuberance de la nature, sont des constantes du genie fragonardien" (op. cit., p. 34). The face of the girl in the following lot has been obscured with overpaint added to make it conform to the taste of the late nineteenth century; the present picture may have borne similar overpaint until its cleaning after the 1960 sale.
