      Horace Mann Livens, British (1862 - 1936), woman bathing, pastel on paper, 10”H x 13”W (sight), 16”H x 20”W (mat)

      Est: $200 - $300

      Horace Mann Livens British, (1862 - 1936) woman bathing pastel on paper Pencil signed verso. Woman bathing; pastel on grey paper (likely early 20th c.). Livens is probably best known today for his correspondence with his friend Vincent van Gogh and for having painted the first portrait of van Gogh (subsequently lost). The drawing is in very good condition; vivid colors. On the back – remnants of hinging tape and some notes (including an apparently old one in pencil: ‘H.M. Livens' [signature?], and one in ballpoint pen: ‘Horace Mann Livens'). Sheet size: 362 x 285 mm. In passepartout. For a drawing by Livens on a different subject, but in very similar style, on similar paper, and with comparable pastel colors. Biography from the Archives of askART: Probably best known for having painted the earliest recorded portrait of Vincent Van Gogh, Horace Livens became a fellow student of Van Gogh while studying at the Antwerp Art Academy in 1885-1886. Although he painted landscapes, figures and animals, he referred to himself as a "painter of poultry", titling his self portrait as "The Old Fowler". He also said that in his artwork, he was greatly influenced by Japanese prints and paintings with their suggestion of space and color, and that in his paintings of chickens, he stressed their response to the effects of light and atmosphere. Returning to England from Antwerp, Livens became a founding member in 1898 of the International Society of Sculptors, Painters and Gravers. Livens has become a lesser-known artist because much of his work was destroyed during the Blitz of World War II and in a fire at a widow's home in Harrow, England in 1957.
