            • Constantin PARTHÉNIS (1878-1967) Allegorical Composition - Nike
              Nov. 30, 2022

              Constantin PARTHÉNIS (1878-1967) Allegorical Composition - Nike

              Est: €90,000 - €120,000

              The work is part of the allegorical compositions by Parthenis of the 1950s. A draft of the work is part of a private collection (Sotheby's: Lot 103, November 18, 2003 and Lot 65, December 12, 2005, pencil on paper, 76 x 84 cm). The recent catalogue issued by The National Gallery for Parthenis’ exhibition (20 June-28 November 2022) features the frieze with the four rectangular scenes as an independent work (number 13720, oil, pencil and charcoal pencil on canvas, 18 x 87.5 cm) and the draft (number 13721, pencil on rice paper, 18 x 87.5 cm). The first scene on the left portrays ships during a battle. It is probably a victorious naval combat that took place during the Antiquity, since the ships look like triremes. The following scene portrays a soldier on horseback, probably King Constantine during the Balkan Wars. The third scene is linked to the recent warfare history of Greece judging by the soldier's uniform and the flag. The last scene on the right is unfinished. However, the Acropolis and the Parthenon are visible in the background. A smaller version of the auctioned work which is accompanied by several relevant studies is part of the collection of the National Gallery (number 6665, 47.5 X 52 cm). The exhaustive study of the subject in question suggests that it was an exceptional work that troubled Parthenis; its content, however, remains a mystery. The National Gallery's version is entitled "Nike", but the smaller part at the bottom with the rectangular sections is unfinished. Thus, it can be concluded that the Allegorical Composition - Nike troubled Parthenis; he created several drafts on paper (for the overall composition and for some of its parts) and also painted the subject on the canvas in different dimensions. Let us not forget that he had already worked on the subject of "Nike" and that during the same period he explored other subjects linked to the "Homeland" (see Nike, The National Gallery Alexandros Soutsos Museum, Religion and Homeland, The National Gallery Alexandros Soutsos Museum, Palaion Patron Germanos raising the flag of the revolution, private collection, etc.). The work is protected as a newer movable monument according to the by the Ministerial Decision under reference number ΥΠΠΘ/ ΔΙΛΑΠ /Β/ 2036/28874/02.06-1999 Hellenic Government gazette ΦΕΚ 1367/Β/05-07-1999). Moreover, pursuant to par. 1, art. 34 of L. 4858/2021 exporting the work is prohibited.

              Constantin PARTHÉNIS (1878-1967) , The glorification of Beauty [1940s]

              Est: €300,000 - €400,000

              signed by N. Parthenis on verso As years went by, Parthenis’ allegoric compositions became increasingly more difficult to apprehend. In this work, he re-approaches a subject that was included in his proposal (1940) for the decoration of one of the rooms of Athens Town Hall (cf. Σχέδια του Κωνσταντίνου Παρθένη στην Εθνική Πινακοθήκη, Athens 1989, number 111). This composition has the same monumental dimensions of the work proposed for the Town Hall (cf. ibid. numbers 101 & 102), this time however it is divided in three zones. In the lower and wider one, Beauty is portrayed as a half-naked young woman holding a flower and sitting on a throne defined by architectural members of the Antiquity. In the upper zone, three figures are portrayed. The middle one showers Beauty with flowers and the other two hold fruits and straws which are symbols of affluence. In the middle zone, a seeder faces an ambiguous -tilted and partly squared- rectangle on which a star inscribed in an emerging circle is projected; probably a hint to the geometry of the universe reigned by absolute beauty.

              May. 12, 2020

              Constantinos Parthenis (Greek, 1878 - 1967), Untitled

              Est: $50,000 - $75,000

              Constantinos Parthenis (Greek, 1878 - 1967) Untitled (Woman / Cityscape) Oil on canvas. Signed upper left. Cubist work with grey tones with two figures and a cityscape. Greek writing on the verso. Constantinos Parthenis is generally esteemed as the founder of Greek modernism. Parthenis's work was tremendously significant in the development of twentieth century Greek art. As a prominent member of the Omni Techni group of 1917 he was responsible, along with Constantinos Maleas, for introducing ideas of light and colour into Greek painting. 18" x 18"; framed 21.5" x 21.5" under glass. Please note that the work is photographed under glass resulting in reflections and photographic distortions. Please see image #7 to see the work photographed out of the frame. Provenance:Property from the noted Zoullas Collection. Condition: This work has been removed from the frame and closely inspected. It is in excellent condition with no tears, wear, dirt or staining of any sort. The canvas has not been re-stretched or relined. Upon close examination, two small nearly imperceptible dimples in the canvas can be seen. These two indentations are along the lower right edge in an unpainted area of the canvas. The removal of the frame also revealed several tiny pinholes in the extreme lower right corner of the canvas that had been covered by the frame. On the verso of the canvas there is a stamped imprint with handwriting in Greek, and the following numerical sequence in ink: 3790/130-1951 (possibly indicating the year) More detailed condition reports and additional photographs are available by request. The absence of a condition report does not imply that the lot is in very fine condition. Please message us through the online bidding platform or email Guernsey's at [email protected] to request a more thorough condition report.
