          Est: €3,500 - €4,000

          FREDERICK RICHARD PICKERSGILL (London, 1820- Isle of Wight, 1900). "The Abdication of Richard II. Oil on canvas. It has a 19th century frame with faults. Signed in the lower left corner. Measurements: 74 x 104 cm; 103 x 132 cm (frame). Richard II was the last king of the Plantagenet dynasty, which was succeeded by the Lancastrian dynasty, starting the period of the Wars of the Two Roses, between this one and the one of York. His predecessor was his grandfather, Edward III, and his successor, Henry IV, who was also Edward's grandson and Richard's first cousin. In this case the artist recreates the moment when Henry IV abdicates, using a composition that has a long tradition in the history of art, with the figures arranged in the form of a frieze in such a way as to allow the work to be easily understood. The scene is based entirely on the imagination of the author, who idealises the scene, thus evoking a glorious past, a device very much to the taste of the 19th century. During this period the historicist trend developed to a great extent, due to the Enlightenment interest of the previous century and the exaltation of a past that had little to do with the reality of the moment. Furthermore, historicist paintings were the most highly valued by the academy, as the artist's skill in other genres such as still life or landscape could be discerned in them. Aesthetically the work is close to the painting of Frederick Richard Pickersgill, an English painter and book illustrator. Born in London into a family of artists, he was admitted to the Royal Academy schools in 1840. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1839 and 1875. The Burial of Harold of Pickersgill was accepted as a decoration for the Houses of Parliament in 1847 for the sum of £500. He also produced some landscapes under the influence of the Pre-Raphaelites. In 1856, Robert Howlett photographed Pickersgill at the Institute of Photography as part of a series of portraits of artists. The image was part of a group exhibited at the Manchester Art Treasures Exhibition in 1857. Pickersgill was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1847 and a full Royal Academician in June 1857, but retired in 1888. He was Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools from 1873 to 1887.

          CIRCE TEACHING COMUS THE ART OF MAGIC 79 by 127 cm., 31 by 50 in. signed and dated l.r.: F. R. PICKERSGILL RA 1851 oil on canvas NOTE In his choice of subjects for painting, Frederick Pickersgill demonstrated a love for English literature of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The present work takes its subject from John Milton's masque Comus, which was written and first performed in 1634. In the story Comus was a pagan god of Milton's invention, the son of Circe and Bacchus, and one who preyed upon travellers, having the power of magic to turn them into wild beasts. In the masque, a nameless lady comes upon the scene, and is led by Comus -- who pretends to be a shepherd -- to a cottage, which turns by magic into a stately palace where she is tempted to drink a magic potion. She defends her virtue against Comus' assault, and is rescued by her brothers and Sabrina, the goddess of the river Severn. In Pickersgill's painting we see Comus' mother, the malevolent figure of Circe, surrounded by her female attendants, educating her son in the destructive power of sorcery. Circe holds in her right hand a golden goblet into which is poured a quantity of the magic potion with which Comus will bewitch his wayfaring victims and by which means he will attempt to overcome the virtuous resistance of the lady. Pickersgill's first subject from Comus -- which showed the lady being rescued by her brothers, who seize the phial of magic potion and dash it to the ground, and who are assisted by the spirit Thyris -- appeared at the Royal Academy in 1844. A further subject showing Circe was shown in 1849. The present painting, representing an early scene in the masque, appears not to have been exhibited. The 1840s and early 1850s saw Frederick Pickersgill come to prominence on the London artistic scene. In 1843 he had been awarded a prize of £100 for his cartoon The Death of Lear in the first competition for the decoration of the Palace of Westminster. His painting The Death of Harold (Palace of Westminster) caused a sensation at the second competition in 1847, winning first prize and being purchased by the commissioners. In the same year, he was elected an associate of the Royal Academy, where he was later to serve as Keeper. In 1855 a biographical article on the artist concluded with the view that Pickersgill's paintings 'exhibit sound judgment and good taste in the selection of the subject [which is then] treated with delicacy of feeling and purity of expression ... His style is altogether good, and the quality of his painting such as will test close observation, especially the works of the last five or six years, which manifest increased and increasing vigour of execution' ('British Artists: Their Style and Character No.VII -- F.R. Pickersgill, A.R.A.', Art Journal, 1855, pp.233-6). CSN

(on an old label on the reverse) oil on panel 12 x 9 7/8 in. (30.5 x 25 cm.) PROVENANCE with P. & D. Colnaghi & Co., Ltd, London. Anon. sale, Sotheby's, New York, 23 January 1979, lot 258, as Samson and Delilah, when acquired by the present owner. EXHIBITION A Brush with the Millenium, 2000, no. 7. NOTES Though sold to the Forbes Collection as Samson and Delilah, and carrying a comparable pose to the protagonists in the picture of 1850 in Manchester City Art Gallery, this picture would appear to be a depiction of Venus, Mars and Cupid. Mars, god of war, having disposed of his armour, reclines in Venus's lap, while the triumph of love is concluded by a winged Cupid, who places a floral wreath on Venus' head. It is not known whether the present picture is a sketch for a larger composition.
