Ernest Meissonier Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Etcher, Lithographer, Sculptor, Illustrator, b. 1815 - d. 1891

(born 1815 Lyon, France; died 1891) French painter. Considered one of the most prominent genre and military painters in 19th Century France, Jean-Louis Ernest Meissonier studied with Jules Potier, and afterwards under the tutelage of Leon Cogniet. He achieved success early on, winning medals at the Salons of 1840, 1841, 1843, and 1848. His paintings prior to 1850 were primarily interior scenes with figures; however afterwards he shifted to grander exterior scenes with multiple figure compositions. Meissonier paid careful attention to detail in his works: painting often from sculptures of figures and horses modeled in wax or clay, a fact which was only widely known after his death when they were exhibited along with his paintings. Most of his studies were bronzed by the Siot de Caouville Foundry. In the 1850s through the 1870s he became fascinated by 17th century Dutch and Flemish genre painting; he chose not to paint according to 19th century tastes but instead chose a style reminiscent of the 18th century, painting from authentic period costumes and props. His most well known works were a series of paintings of Napoleon’s military campaigns, through which, like his genre paintings, he developed an acute eye for detail. In 1865 Meissonier became reclusive; retiring to a studio in Poissy where he focused on small scale military and genre paintings. In 1890 he was the President d’honneur at Salon de la Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts and they had a retrospective of his work shortly after his death in 1893. Meissonier’s work is featured in such museums as the National Gallery in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; museums in Bordeaux and Lille, France have some of the casts he used for study.

              Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier,  French 1815-1891-  A Cavalier standing in a forest;  oil on canvas, signed and dated 'J.L.E. Meissonier 1869' (lower right), 45.5 x 35.5 cm.  Provenance:  Private Collection, UK.  Note:  Meissonier, like his student Édouard Detaille (1848-1912), is now perhaps best-known for his military subjects, but also produced a number of historical genre scenes, typically featuring figures in 17th-century costume, no doubt influenced by his training under the history painter Léon Cogniet (1794-1880). The present work is typical of Meissonier's compositions, recalling, for example, his 'Musketeer in the time of Louis XIII' in the Wallace Collection [P332].

Große Bronzeplastik eines Pferdes im Trab, auf längsrechteckiger Plinthe. Die Bronze zählt zu einer Reihe weiterer Pferdefiguren des Künstlers, wie „Cheval blessée" und "Cheval au galop“. Meissonier, der vor allem als Maler bekannt wurde, hat sich auch in der Bildhauerei hervorgetan, vor allem jedoch dem Motiv des Pferdes. Dafür hatte er auf seinem Grundstück eigens eine Bahn eingerichtet, um die Bewegungen des Pferdes zu studieren. Dies kam auch seinen Gemälden zugute, unter denen sich mehrfacht Reiterszenen, vor allem im Zusammenhang mit der Zeit Napoleons finden. Berühmt wurde so auch seine Plastik eines Reiters mit wehendem Mantel im Sturm (1880/85). Meissonier zählt zu den bekanntesten Künstlern Frankreichs in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Seine Werke zeigen sein geschichtliches Interesse, sowohl an der Barockzeit, als auch der Napoleons sowie der politischen Geschehnisse seiner eigenen Zeit. Ab den 1870er Jahren wurde Meissonier von der Galerie Georges Petit vertreten, nach seinem Tod hat in den 1920er Jahren die Hébrard-Gallery die Vertretung seiner plastischen Werke übernommen. Die vorliegende Plastik gehört zu den neun Modellen, die erst durch die Familie der Witwe des Künstlers posthum für den Guss in Auftrag gegeben worden sind.

              JEAN-LOUIS-ERNEST MEISSONIER (Lyon, 1815-1891) "Souvenirs du siège or Episode of the Siege of Paris", 1871. Oil on panel. No signature. Published in "Mariano Fortuny", Ediciones Catalanas, by González López and Martí Ayxelá, 1989. vol I. p.82. It has flaws in the frame. Attached is a certificate issued by the Amatller Institute of Hispanic Art signed by Carlos González. Measurements: 24 x 34 cm.; 37 x 45 cm.(frame). In this war scene, Meissonier displays his celebrated technical and compositional skill through a meticulous description of the military siege of a railway station. The troops are spread out in a wide choral gallery: fallen bodies, others holding their weapons, firing or climbing into the moving carriages.... In the distance, the urban architecture is silhouetted. The smoke from the factory chimneys merges with that of the locomotive, giving the scene a certain poetic varnish, despite the use of a deliberately realistic language. Meissonier was born in Lyon in 1815 and moved to Paris at a young age, where his father's business success provided Meissonier with material ease for the rest of his life. With his father's support he began his formal studies in drawing with Jules Potier. From his beginnings it can be traced that in 1831, at the age of 16, he exhibited the painting Les Bourgeois Flamands, which was later acquired by Sir Richard Wallace. He specialised in history painting with military themes and is famous for his depictions of Napoleon, his armies and military subjects. He documented sieges and manoeuvres and was the teacher of Jean Baptiste Édouard Detaille. Meissonier enjoyed great fame during his lifetime and was acclaimed for the mastery and detail of his painting. The English art critic John Ruskin carefully analysed his creations and marvelled at Meissonier's skill and his eye for capturing fascinating details. It was from 1840 onwards that his works became increasingly valued among the new bourgeoisie and aristocracy of the time. Under Chenavard's influence, he achieved great success with the exhibitions Chess Game (1841), The Young Man Playing the Cello (1842), The Painter in his Studio (1843), The Guard Room, The Young Man Looking at Paintings, A Game of Piquet (1845), and The Game of Bowls. He illustrated the works of Honoré de Balzac. He was an academic painter, famous for his genre, military and portrait subjects, painted with a rapid yet precise brushstroke. He is buried in Poissy, the town where he lived from 1846 onwards and of which he was mayor. A portrait of him, The Marchioness of Manzanedo, is in the Prado Museum in Madrid. In 1847 Queen Victoria bought the painting Les Trois Amis (The Village Politicians) as a gift for Prince Albert. In the 1850s he reached the peak of his career when his The Players and the Fight (La Rixe) was presented to the English court by Napoleon III in 1855, and for the 1857 Salon he exhibited a total of nine paintings and drawings. 1 Napoleon III decided to include Meissonier on the imperial staff, where he served during the Italian campaign, and at the beginning of the war of 1870. During the siege of Paris in 1871 he was colonel of a marching regiment.
