    • Emile Branchard Painting - Chicken Barn, ca. 1920s
      Mar. 24, 2022

      Emile Branchard Painting - Chicken Barn, ca. 1920s

      Est: $4,000 - $6,000

      Emile Pierre Branchard (American, 1881-1938). Untitled oil on board, ca. 1920s. Signed on the lower right. A wonderful painting of a chicken barn by American artist Emile Branchard. Seven of the chickens strut about and peck the ground - six rendered in hues of warm chestnut brown and one in white - while another chicken endearingly pokes its head out the barn door. The cool blue-grey skies and two leafless trees suggest that it is late autumn or wintertime. Branchard delineated the rural scene in his signature style with flat forms and a harmonious color palette. Some have compared his naive style to the Symbolists' and Precisionists' form of abstraction. A magnificent example of Branchard's oeuvre set in a custom frame. Size of painting: 11.5" L x 17.5" W (29.2 cm x 44.4 cm) Size of frame: 15.875" L x 22" W (40.3 cm x 55.9 cm) Born to French parents in Greenwich Village, New York City, Emile Pierre Branchard had a rather modest childhood. His mother kept a boarding house in the Village that was known as the "house of genius" because many artists and writers frequented the establishment. Schooled by French nuns, Branchard's early exposure to art was watching his stepfather, who studied with Messioner, paint. Branchard worked as a stevedore and truck driver, and during World War I became a policeman for the Home Defense Force. When working for the Home Defense Force, he contracted tuberculosis. During this period, while confined at home, he began to paint, using the leftover paints and brushes of a former roomer in the boardinghouse. Branchard painted imaginary still lifes, landscapes from memory, and nudes. One of the roomers in the boardinghouse was so impressed with Branchard's work that he submitted two paintings to the Independents show of 1919. Stephen Bourgeois discovered Branchard's work there, and gave him a one-man show that same year. He would continue to show Branchard's art regularly until 1932. In 1938, Branchard exhibited at the Marie Harriman Gallery and was also included in the Museum of Modern Art's "Masters of Popular Painting" exhibition. Later that year he passed away in the same house where he had lived for fifty years. Emile Pierre Branchard's untitled (winter) painting sold with a hammer price of $17,000 at David Rago - November 9, 2019 - lot 650. While a bit larger (25x18) the style and rural subject certainly resonate with this example.

      EMILE BRANCHARD (1881-1938) Mother and Child.

      Est: $1,200 - $1,800

      EMILE BRANCHARD (1881-1938) Mother and Child. Oil on canvas. 640x455 mm; 24x18 inches. Signed in oil, lower left recto. Circa 1930-40. Branchard was born in Greenwich Village and lived in a boarding house in the area that was run by his mother and catered to artists. Before becoming an artist, he worked as a stevedore, truck driver, and policeman on the Home Defense Fund during World War I. He contracted tuberculosis early in his career, and confined to his home for long periods, began to paint. A self-taught artist, his only exposure to art had been during his childhood when he used to watch his stepfather paint. A fellow boarder saw Branchard's work and helped get his paintings into the "Society of Independent Artists Exhibition" of 1919 where they were appreciated by the critic and art dealer Stephan Bourgeois. This led to further exhibitions, including at the Marie Harriman Gallery and The MoMA's "Masters of Popular Painting" show in 1938. His style, marked by flat forms with subtle, undulating contours, recalls Symbolist abstraction and the Precisionist artists working in New York during the 1920s and 1930s.
