Who is William Powell Frith?
William Powell Frith RA (9 January 1819 – 2 November 1909) was an English painter specialising in genre subjects and panoramic narrative works of life in the Victorian era. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1853, presenting The Sleeping Model as his Diploma work. He has been described as the "greatest British painter of the social scene since Hogarth".

William Powell Frith was born in Aldfield, near Ripon in North Yorkshire on 9 January 1819. Frith was encouraged to take up art by his father, a hotelier in Harrogate. Frith was great uncle and an advisor to the English school portrait painter Henry Keyworth Raine (1872–1932).

He moved to London in 1835 where he began his formal art studies at Sass's Academy in Charlotte Street, before attending the Royal Academy Schools. Frith started his career as a portrait painter and first exhibited at the British Institution in 1838. In the 1840s he often based works on the literary output of writers such as Charles Dickens, whose portrait he painted, and Laurence Sterne.

Stacy-Marks Ltd., EastbournePrivate Collection, UKSale, Bonhams, London, 14 March 2018,19th Century European, Victorian and British Impressionist Art, lot 64Exhibited:London, Royal Academy, 1876, no. 250.The Vicar of Wakefield, was a novel written by the Irish author Oliver Goldsmith. Published in 1766, it was one of the most popular 18th century novels of the Victorian age. Written as a 'fictitious memoir' with a riveting riches to rags and back again storyline, Frith had a particular liking for the novel and in addition to the present lot which was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1876, also painted two more scenes from the novel which were exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1841 and 1842. The second of these two works, Measuring Heights, is now in the collection of the Victoria and Albert museum, London. Both the lot offered here and Measuring Heights depict scenes from Chapter 16 of the novel.Frith often painted happy family scenes throughout his career, which was not reflective of his own personal life; during the course of his life Frith had two families, one with his first wife and twelve children, and one with his mistress, Mary Alford, and their seven children who lived a mile down the road. Described as the 'greatest British painter of the social scene since Hogarth' he often chose literary themes for his subjects including a number of works based of the works of Charles Dickens. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1853 and by 1876, Frith was firmly established as the most successful painter of his generation. Just the year before he painted this scene his painting Before Dinner at Boswell's Lodgings, 1868, achieved the highest auction price to date for a living artist....

† William Powell Frith, RA (British, 1819-1909) The flower seller

Lot 46: † William Powell Frith, RA (British, 1819-1909) The flower seller

Auction Date: Sep 26, 2019

Estimate: £20,000 - £30,000

Description: William Powell Frith, RA (British, 1819-1909)
The flower seller signed and dated 'W P Frith 1865.' (lower left)oil on canvas76.5 x 63.5cm (30 1/8 x 25in).

Exhibited: London, Guildhall Art Gallery & Harrogate, Mercer Art Gallery, William Powell Frith: Painting the Victorian Age, November 2006-July 2007.London, Guildhall Art Gallery, 1978-80, 1981, 1991-93, 1998-2003, 2008-2010. Literature: Aubrey Noakes, William Frith: Extraordinary Victorian Painter, London, 1978, (illustrated in black and white p. 97).In 1865, the year in which the present lot was painted, Frith was hard at work finishing his monumental canvas The Marriage of the Prince of Wales (Royal Collection), a commission from Queen Victoria which had begun in 1863. Frith attended the ceremony, but also worked from photographs and later sittings to render the prestigious attendees as accurately as possible. When presented at the Royal Academy, the painting was so popular among visitors that it was virtually impossible for any viewer to get a close look. As with Derby Day of 1858, Frith's extensive and highly detailed composition had drawn a huge crowd of admirers, to such an extent that, once again, an iron railing had to be placed around the work to keep the public at bay.Following the completion of such an exhausting undertaking, Frith returned to less challenging, more intimate compositions, such as A Dream of the Future (Mercer Art Gallery, Harrogate), and the present lot. The narrative in the painting has echoes of Frith's masterpiece Derby Day and he has positioned his flower seller at a county fair or fete. Beyond her, an elegant couple stand between the tents, the male figure having a buttonhole pinned into his lapel.The model used in the present lot bears a resemblance to the sitter in Frith's 1868 RA exhibit Sterne's Maria, from 'A Sentimental Journey' a model described by Frith as 'a pretty, gentle creature, who had a history. She sat to me many times for many pictures.'11 W. P. Frith, My Autobiography and Reminiscences, New York, 1888, p. 272.

Other Notes: William Powell Frith was a Victorian phenomenon.
