Phillips Fox: His Life and Art, The Miegunyah Press, Melbourne University Press, Melbourne, 1995, p. 166 ESSAY In a letter to his close friend Hans Heysen in 1911, Emanuel Phillips Fox wrote that in his determination ‘to get some settled sunlight’, he, his wife (the artist Ethel Carrick) and one of Fox’s students went from London ‘to Algiers, from there South into the interior to a place called Bou Saada – where we stayed six weeks – then back to Algiers – then to Tangiers & on to Cadiz – and return’d home through Seville, Cordova, Granada, Toledo and Madrid.’1 On their way back to Paris, they painted in the south of France, further inspired by the sea and coastal towns. Fox’s palette, already enriched by his intimate study of post-impressionist art in Europe, now became even more sun-drenched and high-key in colour. On re-arrival in Australia in 1913, his recent work caused a sensation and he subsequently painted a number of canvases in late January 1914 at popular tourist sites near Sydney, including majestic Stanwell Tops at the southern edge of the Royal National Park, and Stanwell Park below. It is plausible that Fox stayed with his Australian Art Association colleague Edward Officer, who lived nearby.   Figures beside the creek, Stanwell Park, c.1914, is one of seven known paintings that Fox did in the area, all of which appear to have been plein air studies, individually done in single sittings, of the cliffs and the meandering creeks that run through the park. The likely setting is the lower reaches of Stanwell Creek, with the picturesque Kelly’s Falls a short distance away. The painting blazes with light and textured impasto, animated by the figures – likely members of Fox’s and Officer’s families – clambering amongst the rocks. Whilst the artist’s mastery of colour is on full display, particularly in the right-hand section featuring the palm trees, it is also interesting to note other aspects of his technique, particularly in his treatment of the ground. As his colleague Norman Carter described, Figures beside the creek, Stanwell Park was not painted ‘on white prepared canvas, but on duck or sailcloth with a coating of glue size the colour of which would be light fawn or off-white; patches of this were often left unpainted. … In some paintings, particularly if linseed oil had been used to restore the painting, this unpainted sailcloth had darkened – but it had never been white.’ 2 This particular aspect is detectable amongst the rocks and lower cliff.   In the years prior to 1913, Fox had already established himself as one of this country’s leading artists, having studied at the National Gallery School in Melbourne, then in Paris in the company of Tudor St George Tucker. On their return in 1893, the two men opened the Melbourne Art School, famed for being the most progressive in its day. In subsequent years, Fox was the first Australian to be elected into membership of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Paris, and the International Society of Painters, Sculptors and Gravers in London, but what is less known is his impact on this country’s earliest modernists. Roland Wakelin would later recall of Fox’s exhibition in Sydney in 1913: ‘We’d never seen colour like that before… this was expression through colour.’ 3 With a provenance that includes Joseph Brown, Sir Leon and Lady Trout, and the Krongold family, Figures beside the creek, Stanwell Park is a superb example of Fox’s mature painterly technique.                                                                                                                         1.

Carrick had studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London and had clear artistic aspirations, as well as a strong independent streak, and Fox had undertaken his training at Melbourne’s National Gallery School, alongside Rupert Bunny and Frederick McCubbin. Together the couple shared a rich, creative life, supporting each other in their respective artistic endeavours and ambitions. As newlyweds they moved to Paris, living in a studio apartment at the Cité Fleurie in Montparnasse, described by Carrick as ‘quite a cosmopolitan little colony of hard-working artists … thirty different nationalities being represented.’1 Colour and the varied effects of light were central to Fox’s art. Indeed, as Lionel Lindsay recalled, ‘He once told me that he no longer saw anything except as a colour-sensation… His gamut of greens is extraordinary fine and varied, and the purity of his colour still holds the sunlight imprisoned in the pigment.’2 While he had been trained in an academic style, Fox always enjoyed the freedom of working outdoors, and the influence of French Impressionism – particularly as articulated by Renoir and Monet, whose work was easily accessible during Fox’s years in Paris – encouraged this, feeding in to what has been described as his natural ‘inclination towards colour, light and optical experience.’3  The example of the French intimiste painters, Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard, was also significant. Focussing on the figure in intimate domestic settings, their paintings are quiet and contemplative in a manner which is almost timeless. Bonnard’s moody Siesta, 1900, acquired through the Felton Bequest by the National Gallery of Victoria in 1949, is a relevant comparison, sharing with Fox’s Repos, c.1909 – 11, both its subject – a naked woman alone in her boudoir – and an interest in the depiction of interior details and decoration. While the painterly representation of pattern is a primary element of Siesta, Fox limits the decorative details of his work to the upholstery of the chaise longue on which the figure reclines. A pattern of vertical blue and white stripes interspersed with delicate pink and floral motifs is just visible beneath the draped white sheet, and a glimpse of this same textile can also be seen in the closely related work, Resting, c.1910 – 11 (Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art). A single slipper, discarded by the model, rests on a band of soft green carpet in the foreground, but apart from these elements, the palette is restrained and limited to pale shades of cream, grey and white. This airy colouring allows Fox to focus on the representation of light and shade, and his skill is on full display in the shadows and bright highlights of the crumpled sheet, and the reflections that illuminate the window’s blinds.  Most prominent in this picture, however, is the nude who reclines comfortably, arms raised and hands clasped above her head. Although not overtly erotic, Fox’s depiction of the female figure is deliberately sensuous in its physicality, as well as the intimacy of the scene. The nude became an important aspect of Fox’s oeuvre during these years and as Ruth Zubans has noted, the lack of self-consciousness which characterised his approach to the theme could only have occurred in France.4 It was a genre that featured in exhibitions at the Salon and this, no doubt, also influenced Fox in his choice of subject matter, success in this context representing a significant achievement. When Fox was made an associate of the Société Nationale des Beaux Arts for Al Fresco, c.1904 (Art Gallery of South Australia), it both enhanced his status in Australia, as well as securing him a respected place among his international peers.5 Le Repos was shown at the New Salon at the Grand Palais in Paris in 1911, and in 1912 at the Exposition de la Société Internationale de Peinture & Sculpture. Fox took the painting to Australia when he returned the following year, showing it in exhibitions in Melbourne and Sydney, and it was here that it later found its first owner, a fellow artist, the painter Charles Bush. 1.

Phillips Fox, Guild Hall, Melbourne, February – March 1908, no. 25 LITERATURE Zubans, R.,  E. Phillips Fox: His Life and Art, The Miegunyah Press, Melbourne, 1995, cat. U129, p. 234 ESSAY In the spring of 1907 Emanuel Phillips Fox and his artist wife Ethel Carrick left Paris for Venice for their honeymoon. Upon their return to Melbourne in 1908, Phillips Fox held an exhibition at the Guildhall in March which included On the Molo, Venice, 1907 and 12 other Venetian subjects, followed by an exhibition in Sydney at the Grosvenor Rooms in June. Melbourne sales were reported to be successful with four Venetian subjects selling to the Northcote family.1  On the Molo, Venice was most likely sold during the Melbourne exhibition as it was not included in following Sydney selection. Ruth Zubans observed the immediate and painterly nature of the smaller Venetian panels, writing ‘Some of the Venetian studies are small poetic scenes with picturesque architecture, sailing boats and decorative figures painted quickly with a creamy brush… Some scenes with sunlight shimmering on the water, reveal a loosening of the surface, with more assertive strokes and freer colour…’2 ‘The Molo’ denotes the historic stone waterfront entrance to Venice, a favoured subject of Canaletto during the 1730s. Nearby, dominating the eastern side of the adjoining Piazza San Marco, are located St Mark’s Basilica and the Venetian Gothic style Doge’s Palace – subjects which were also painted by Phillips Fox and similarly featured in the Guildhall, Melbourne exhibition. 1.
