            PAIR OF CONSOLES "A L'AIGLE", George II style, in the style of W. KENT (William Kent, 1685-1748), England, end of the19th century. Wood, opulently carved with the figure of an eagle, meander band and decorative frieze, and gilt. White top. Gilding, in part rubbed. 93x45x87 cm. Provenance: - from a private collection, Monaco. --------------- 1 PAAR KONSOLEN "A L'AIGLE", George II-Stil, in der Art von W. KENT (William Kent, 1685-1748), England, Ende 19. Jh. Holz reicht beschnitzt mit Adlerfigur, Mäanderband und Zierfries sowie vergoldet. Wenig vorstehende weisse Platte auf gerader Zarge mit Adlerstütze auf Rechtecksockel. Vergoldung teils berieben. 93x45x87 cm. Provenienz: Privatsammlung, Monaco. Das hier angebotene Paar orientiert sich an bedeutende Konsolen von W. Kent, welche sich auch Jahrzehnte später grösster Beliebtheit erfreuten. W. Kent war der führende Baumeister und Designer des englischen Spätbarocks. Geboren 1685 im East Yorkshire erlernte er sein Handwerk in Rom, wo er 1709 für eine mehrjährige Studienreise in der Werkstatt des Giuseppe Chiari sich auch als Maler weiterbildete. In Italien lernte er Richard Boyle, Earl of Burlington kennen, dessen Freundschaft einschneidend für Kents Karriere war. Dieser empfahl ihn für bedeutende Ämter bei Hofe und so wurde William Kent im Jahre 1726 zum „Master Carpenter“. Er entwarf als richtungsweisender Architekt einige Räume im Kensington Palace. Ab 1734 entwarf er für die Grafen Leicester im Stil des Palladianismus das Holkham Hall in Norfolk. Ab etwa 40 Jahren betätigte er sich als innovativer Gartenkünstler, welcher als Meister der „pittoresken“ und natürlicher Gartengestaltung viel Anklang fand. Eines seiner bekanntesten Gärten findet man heute im Rousham House, welches auch 300 Jahre später immer noch als eines der schönsten Landschaftsgärten Englands gilt. Im Jahr 1748 verstarb William Kent als einer der vielseitigsten Künstler des englischen Spätbarocks in London. Lit.: G. Ehret / John Andrews, Englische Möbel, Augsburg 1990; s. 26 (biogr. Angaben).

          • William M. Kent "Reclining Figure" Sculpture, Original Work
            Nov. 22, 2015

            William M. Kent "Reclining Figure" Sculpture, Original Work

            Est: $500 - $750

            Provenance: Artist | Nelson James Dunford | Private collection, Sarasota, Florida. According to the William Kent Foundation, this work was the first of a series of 12 sculptures executed in cast stone as homages to Henry Moore, numbered #32 and simply named "Reclining Figure" by the artist. It has been renumbered "#E32" in the catalogue raisonné to distinguish it from the wood sculpture series Kent began in 1977, starting his numbering again from #1. After graduate studies in music theory at Yale under composer Paul Hindemith, William Kent's interests turned to sculpture and print-making. Although primarily self-taught, his reputation rose rapidly in the New York art world of the 1950s and early 1960s with rave reviews from the New York Times (calling him a "definite discovery"), inclusion in the Whitney Museum's 1965 Biennial Exhibition - along with Jasper Johns, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell and Robert Rauschenberg, and representation by the renowned New York gallery of Richard Castellane. The increasingly blatant usage of sexual and political imagery in his work became too toxic for the pre-Sexual-Revolution art world of the time, and, unwilling to compromise his vision, he withdrew to his Connecticut studio to continue his work until his recent death at age 93. A 2013 retrospective exhibition of Kent's sculptures and prints entitled "My Life Ruined by Sex" at the New York Museum of Sex illustrated how shocking his work must have seemed in the 1960s.

Their vastly opulent and decorative forms helped facilite the courtly representation of their owners. One console table with seated wolves, probably based on a design by William Kent and worked by Benjamin Goodison (1695-1767) for Longford castle, can now be seen in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. A further, very similar pair of consoles with seated foxes is currently in possession of the National Trust at Stourhead Mansion, Wiltshire.

For this type, cf. pg.242 fig.31. - Francis Bamford: A Dictionary of Edinburgh Wrights and Furniture Makers 1660 - 1840. London 1983. Cf. fig.24A and 24B. Inspired by Alexander Pope's translation of Homer's Ilias, William Kent designed the prototype of this table with dramatically posed eagles carved in the round. These tables, usually made in pairs, were highly popular in England in the 1740s. The earliest depiction of this kind of console can be found in the header of an invoice prepared in 1739 by the famous Edinburgh-based cabinetmaker Francis Brodie. This design experienced a renaissance in the late 19th century. The English architects William Kent and Henry Flitcroft worked in the tradition of Andrea Palladio and were significant protagonists of the Palladian style in 18th century England. The most important patron of their work was the Earl of Burlington, who supported both of them throughout his life. The two were not only architects, but were also responsible for landscaping and interior decor. For example, William Kent designed numerous pieces of furniture and decorative items for Houghton Hall, Holkham Hall, Rousham House and Hampton Court Palace - many of which are still preserved today and can be found in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Several console tables based on designs by Henry Flitcroft and worked by Matthias Lock and are in the Metropolitan Museum, New York.

Marmorplatte. Rechteckige Sockelplatte mit umlaufendem Mäanderfries, der obere Teil gekehlt, mit alternierenden Akanthusblättern und Kanneluren verziert. An den Kanten je eine vollplastisch gearbeitete Figur eines Adlers mit weit ausgebreiteten Schwingen und geöffnetem Schnabel. Die Mittelkartusche mit Akanthusblättern und Muschelmotiv gestaltet.

Inspiriert von Alexander Popes Übersetzung Homers Ilias entwarf William Kent den Typus eines Konsoltisches mit vollplastisch gestalteten und reich bewegten Adlerfiguren. Diese Tische, meist als Paare gefertigt, erfreuten sich in den 1740er Jahren in England größter Beliebtheit. Die frühste bekannte Darstellung eines solchen Konsoltisches erschien 1739 auf dem Rechnungskopf des berühmten Edinburgher Ebenisten Francis Brodie. Eine Renaissance erlebten diese Tische im frühen und auch im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert. Die beiden englischen Architekten William Kent und Henry Flitcroft standen ganz in der Tradition des Andrea Palladio und waren wichtige Vertreter des Palladianismus im England des 18. Jahrhunderts. Der wichtigste Förderer ihrer Arbeiten war Zeit seines Lebens der Earl of Burlington. Ihre Tätigkeit umfasste nicht nur die Architektur, sondern auch die Landschaftsgestaltung und Innenarchitektur. William Kent entwarf etwa zahlreiche Möbel und Dekorationen für Houghton Hall, Holkham Hall, Rousham House und Hampton Court Palace. Zahlreiche seiner Entwürfe haben sich erhalten und befinden sich u.a. in der Sammlung des Victorian and Albert Museums, London. Mehrere Konsoltische nach Entwürfen von Henry Flitcroft und in der Ausführung Matthias Lock zugeschrieben sind in der Sammlung des Metropolitan Museums, New York.

            Oct. 18, 2006

            A FINE AND RARE GEORGE II LEATHER-UPHOLSTERED MAHOGANY OPEN ARMCHAIR IN THE MANNER OF WILLIAM KENT, CIRCA 1740

            Est: $7,000 - $9,000

            the feet formerly fitted with sunk casters, now filled. Restorations, back right leg with repaired break. NOTE Trained as a coach-painter, William Kent (1685-1748) was sent to Italy with John Talman in 1709 by his patrons, Sir William Wentworth, Burrell Massingbred and Sir John Chester 'to promote his studies'. Known amongst the English Grand Tourists firstly as a painter, he was brought back to England by the Earl of Burlington in 1719 who 'promoted him on all occasions to everything in his power, to the King, to the Court works & Courtiers . . .' Foremost of his talents was architecture but his abilities also included interior decoration and landscape architecture, in which, as Horace Walpole observed, Kent 'leaped the fence and saw that all Nature was a Garden'. Kent's genius is seen in his work at Rousham Hall, Oxfordshire, the house of Lt.-General James Dormer, where, from 1738 to 7141, he altered the exterior and interiors of the existing house built in 1635, designed furniture and created an Augustan landscape garden whose plans had been laid out by Charles Bridgeman in the 1720s. Mahogany and parcel-gilt armchairs designed by Kent for Rousham with legs of closely related form to those of the present lot are illustrated, Hayward and Kirkham, William and John Linnell, 1980, vol. II, p. 36, fig. 67: headed by carved shells, the legs continue to a fluted collar above paneled tapering square legs with carved husks ending in flattened block feet. Hayward and Kirkham suggest that William and John Linnell possibly worked for Kent at Rousham (op. cit., vol. I, p. 115). Similarities exist between elements of their suite of mahogany and parcel-gilt settees and armchairs made to the designs of Sir William Chambers for Francis Child at Osterley Park and the Rousham chairs, including tapering square legs ending in block feet and canted back legs, and, on the set of six settees, outscrolled handholds (op. cit., p. 35, fig. 66 and p. 118, fig. 231). Outscrolled handholds on carved downswept supports are found in a design for an armchair 'For Sr Nathl Curzons', (op. cit., vol. I, p. 35, fig. 64), similar to the present lot.
