        John Brett ARA (1831-1902)

        Est: £5,000 - £8,000

        John Brett ARA (1831-1902) Distant Capri signed and dated 'John Brett/1897' l.l., oil on canvas 38 x 76cm Provenance: A H Harman, 2 June 1897 for 100 guineas; N Mitchell; anonymous sale, Christie's, 6 March 1939 (lot 147) as Loch Fyne - unsold; anonymous sale, Sotheby's 12 March 1997 (lot 21) as Loch Fyne - sold for £1725; Exhibited:     Royal Academy, 1897 (740). Literature:     ‘Magazine of Art’, 1897, ill. p.155; C Payne ‘John Brett: Pre-Raphaelite Landscape Painter’ (Yale UP 2010), p.240 (Catalogue no 1473). In his last years, when he travelled rarely, John Brett frequently returned to subjects he had painted many years earlier, using material from his 72 sketchbooks (now in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich) to provide inspiration. In the present instance, the source was a drawing dated Sep 20 63 in sketchbook 13, which contains sketches made that year in the Bay of Naples. This drawing, clearly done from a boat, depicts the coast from a point a few miles south of the town of Massa Lubrense, looking south-west towards Campanella Point, with the Isle of Capri in the far distance. The prominent architectural feature in the left foreground is probably the Torre San Lorenzo. This drawing formed the starting point for an important finished watercolour dated 1864-6, to which Brett gave the title 'Casa di Castella' (currently unlocated). Thirty years later he revisited the same source in order to create the present oil picture. It follows the design of the earlier watercolour fairly closely, but the vista towards Capri is of far greater extent, and the work is generally much richer in detail. In the entry for January 17 1897 in his Studio Log (Tate Archive) Brett wrote 'On New Year's Day I began a little picture 30 x 15 inches, Distant Capri', and he later recorded its sale at the Royal Academy that summer. Our thanks to Charles Brett for his assistance in the preparation of this catalogue entry. Condition Report: overall: 51 x 89.5cm The canvas is unlined in generally good condition. Unexamined under UV light, for a full report please contact the department.

Literature: Charles Brett, Michael Hickox & Christiana Payne, John Brett – A Pre-Raphaelite in Cornwall, 2006, p. 119 (illustrated). Christiana Payne & Charles Brett, John Brett - Pre-Raphaelite Landscape Painter, New Haven, 2010, p. 228, no. 1049, illustrated p. 149, colour plate 127.Charles Brett wrote of the present painting on the occasion of its inclusion in the exhibition John Brett – A Pre-Raphaelite in Cornwall: 'This picture has a very interesting and rather chequered history. It began life as A Strong sou-wester on an iron-bound coast, and was commissioned in November 1883 by Brett's friend and patron Dr James Watt Black for £300. Brett's Book of Pictures states that it was 'painted with copal & poppy & some lavender', and was 'done from an old sketch of the Cowlow rock from Sennen belonging to [Alfred] Morrison'. As a young man, Black was consultant gynaecologist to Morrison's wife, and he must have seen and admired the sketch during visits to the Morrisons at 16 Carlton House Terrace. The work was finished in time for the Academy in 1884, where it appeared as A south-westerly gale: Cornish coast. The following year, however, Black decided it was too dark for his drawing-room, and exchanged it for another work. Brett changed its title to The Cowlow Rocks, Cornwall, in a SW gale, and on the recommendation of T.L. Devitt, it was bought in February 1888 for the Public Gallery at Sydney, NSW for 200 guineas. But in Sydney the authorities took against it, and in March 1889 it was returned to England. As Brett wrote in his Studio Log, 'I found out that they knew that my best pictures at the RA fetched long prices (up to 1200) and as they wanted only a first rate specimen they despised a picture that only cost £210. And in fact sent it back (NB it is a thoroughly good picture) ... Now the question is what shall I do with it? It is a picture rejected by a colonial corporation!!!! Everybody knows it and it has no selling value. Unlucky picture!!!' [...] Brett was clearly justified in maintaining that it is a thoroughly good picture. The offshore Cowlow Rocks and the foreground boulders are painted with great precision, and the scene's stormy atmosphere is powerfully conveyed'.It must be presumed that the artist himself put the painting in its present frame – of the distinctive design that he favoured for his exhibition works in the later years of his career – sometime after 1896, in which year the composition entitled A friend in need had been shown at the Royal Academy. The two canvases were identical in size and therefore interchangeable in terms of their framing. Brett would have been likely to have done this in preparation for sending A strong sou-wester to public exhibitions in 1900 and 1901. This explains why labels relating to A friend in need (which painting, incidentally, has been unlocated since 1988) are attached to the frame.We are grateful to Charles Brett for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
