Born in France in 1850 to a bourgeoise family of Tuscan decent, Jean-François Raffaëlli enjoyed a privileged upbringing until his teenage years, when his father’s textile business failed and Jean- François was forced to fend for himself. Raffaëlli is considered a “realist” by most art historians and by the art critics of his time, and while he had deep ties to the early Impressionist movement, Raffaëlli did not consider himself a part of any one movement and rejected all attempts to classify his art. He believed that, above all, an artist’s duty was to render the essence of the contemporary society in which he lived, stating: “My subject is all of Paris, I aim to paint the beauty of Paris as well as its wretchedness.” He is primarily remembered for his depictions of the latter: “the wretched,” the poor downtrodden peasants that populated Paris. Art critic Albert Wolff wrote: “Like Millet he [Raffaëlli] is the poet of the humble. What the great master did for the fields, Raffaëlli begins to do for the modest people of Paris. He shows them as they are, more often than not stupefied by life’s hardships.” Raffaëlli formed a friendship with Degas in the late 1870s, and at Degas’ continued insistence he exhibited a large number of works at the Fifth and Sixth Expositions Impressionnistes in 1880 and 1881. Raffaëlli’s paintings, of which there were far more of than any other artist (44 in ’80 and 34 in ’81), were universally praised by the critics, while many of the other artists’ entries were disregarded and even mocked. One critic wrote: “Quite apart I place Mr. Raffaëlli whose research differs absolutely from that of the rest of the group. This one is, on the contrary, refined in detail, an outrageous rendering.” Another critic articulated Raffaëlli’s divergence from the “impressionists” in these terms: “M. Raffaëlli is a sincere artist who makes not an impression, but a deliberate kind of painting, very studied, finished, of compact design.” Monet withheld his works from the ’80/’81 exhibitions to protest Degas’ insistence on Raffaëlli’s inclusion. Before the 1882 exhibition, Monet banded together with Caillebotte, Gauguin, and Guillaumin and told Degas that Raffaëlli was out. Degas, Rouart, Cassatt, Forain, and Tillot resigned from the group in protest. Le Grand Prix a Longchamp, painted circa 1906, is most certainly a deviation from the works for which Raffaëlli is known, both in style and subject matter. The painting on offer could be classified as highly impressionistic; the viewer can see a touch of Monet’s pallet, technique, and style in the trees bracketing the grandstand; the subject matter is reminiscent of Manet, Monet, and Forain. The use of color and light, and the way the image is cut off in the middle of the composition, are decidedly impressionistic traits. One can even see a bit of the Post-Impressionists’ influences in the distorted forms of the horses and the almost pointillist manner in which Raffaëlli handled the spectators in the grandstand. Perhaps the most noticeable difference between Le Grand Prix a Longchamp and many of Raffaëlli’s other notable works is the deviation in subject matter: Where are the “modest people of Paris,” the wretched souls “stupefied by hardship?” We will allow Raffaëlli to answer this question. The following comes from his foreword in the catalogue for an 1899 exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, where Raffaëlli had previously exhibited in 1894. You will find what, perhaps, to you will be an indefinable change between my present work and that of a few years since. I desire to explain this change to you as I have explained it to myself. My life has not been an easy one, for I was brought up in luxury until I was fifteen, when within a few years my family lost its entire fortune and I became acquainted with the most grinding poverty. At that period, I painted with the greatest sincerity my hopelessness, my bitterness, my anger, my madness. It follows then that my art was a violent art, somber, bitter, hopeless. I was at that time consumed with the greatest pity and commiseration for those who had been defeated in the great battle of life. I passed several years in such a state of mind as could only inspire an art sad and vibrating with a generous pity. But as the years rolled by they brought great changes into my life. First, my poverty was changed if not into immense riches at least into a comfortable independence. Then, too must I make the confession, my artistic successes have been such that all my bitterness has fled. Many of my pictures are in the best galleries in the world. The strange effects of my first trip to America, with its vivid impressions, must also be taken into account. I here discovered an unending hope for all men who have confidence in their own power. Why not also acknowledge that the success of my own efforts has brought me to believe in happiness. Since by sad sights my melancholy was not soothed, I was forced to supply by my art my great desire for charm, for beauty, grace, elegance, poetry, tenderness and the sweetness which could not flourish during my years of hardship. So that at this period I paint the portraits of young girls, the portraits of children, flowers, the sun light, all things pleasing. So after all the storms of youth I have gradually arrived at some degree of serenity, with which it is so well to finish; it is the expression most suitable to the whitening beard. Thus, if life be a succession of accidents, it must be that the oftener they are overcome the less they move us. Why not confess that one finally is tempted to laugh at it all? Again, I say it is well, it is good to quit life in an amiable and generous fashion. It is the attitude of a man who has suffered, thought, loved, worked, in a word, lived, and who is none the vainer for it. — November 9, 1899, JF Raffaelli We thank Galerie Brame and Lorenceau for kindly confirming the authenticity of this work, which will be included in their forthcoming Jean-François Raffaëlli computerized catalogue critique now in preparation. Jean-François Raffaëlli (French, 1850–1924) Born in Paris, Raffaëlli first exhibited at the Salon in 1870 and in 1871 began his only formal training, studying under Jean-Léon Gérôme at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He maintained an early friendship with Edgar Degas that enabled him to exhibit with the Impressionists in 1880 and 1881, though this proved highly controversial within the group, given Raffaëlli’s grittier and realist style. He won the Légion d'honneur in 1889, and his later works focused on Parisian street scenes.

Acquis à l'artiste en octobre 1908 et livré en janvier 1909. Accompagné de deux lettres autographes signées de l'artiste.( Elles seront remises à l'acquéreur )" Je travaille comme un nègre - J'ai peu retouché votre tableau". Par descendance. " Cet analyste, probe et fin, ne tomba jamais dans la minutie: il y avait en son art spirituel tant de notations directes, ce que l'auteur de la Fille Elisa appelle " l'écriture artiste". Il résume, dit l'essentiel, ne bavarde jamais. Raffaelli, qui fut toute sa vie un chercheur passionné et souhaitait s'évader de la formule où certains critiques entendaient le maintenir, eut aussi le souci de l'élégance et réussit des portraits féminins d'une rare délicatesse. " Louis Vauxcelles Ai-je mis, sans programme, et de toute mon ardeur d'homme, et d'humain, un peu de ce tressaillement dans des oeuvres d'artistes, depuis les champs noirs de la banlieue jusqu'aux avenues ombragées et fleuries de la ville ? C'est toute l'ambition que j'avoue ici et qui a remplacé, aussi vive, aussi brûlante, la flamme d'enthousiasme de la jeunesse. » J.-F. Raffaelli, Paris 10 juin 1909 (extrait de la préface de l'exposition Galeries Georges Petit en 1909). "…j'aime aussi ses paysages parisiens où son imagination se plaît à remuer, dans la lumière spéciale et l'air criard de Paris, le grouillement des foules et la vie des rues. M.Raffaëlli est doué très vivement du sens de la modernité et je ne sais pas de meilleur compliment à lui adresser, en cette époque où tant de peintres, qui prétendent faire du moderne, n'arrivent qu'à caricaturer des coprs antiques et des figures de la Renaissance, avec de vieux habits achetés à la Belle-Jardinière et dans les décrochez-moi-ça des marchands à la toilette.

          JEAN-FRANÇOIS RAFFAËLLI (1850 Paris 1924) Le quai Malaquais, Paris. Oil on canvas. Signed lower right: JF RAFFAËLLI. 70 × 80.5 cm. The authenticity of the work has been confirmed by Galerie Brame & Lorenceau, Paris, 15.2.2021. It will be included in the digital catalogue raisonné currently in preparation. Provenance: - Bernhard Orthmann, Germany. - Jessy Strassburger, USA/Vaduz, by descent from the above. - Private collection Liechtenstein, received as present from the above. - Marianne und Dr. Egmond Frommelt, Vaduz, by descent from the above. - Auction Dorotheum, Vienna, 7.6.2021, lot 535. - German collection, acquired at the above auction. Exhibited: Hamburg 1906, Grosse Kunstausstellung / Weihnachts-Ausstellung, Kunstverein in Hamburg, December 1906, no. 85 (label on the reverse). The French painter Jean-François Raffaëlli was one of the most important chroniclers of Paris. A committed realist, the self-taught artist brilliantly captured the very specific atmospheric qualities of the city and provided it with figures full of character. His scenes speak their own language, depicting both the transience of a moment and the beauty of the ordinary. The artist achieved this aesthetic through a combination of precise brushwork and the sketchy quality of his compositions, which bowed with equal respect to architecture, nature, officer or dog. Of the latter, in particular, the small dog with black and white fur on the lower right can be found in a number of Raffaëlli's city views. It almost seems as if the dog is guiding the viewer on a tour of Paris through the various paintings. The view in the present work is from Quai Malaquais towards the elegant façade of the Collège des Quatre-Nations, the seat of the Institut de France. This autumnal scene skilfully plays with the changing colours of the season’s transition to grey, and yet the shedding leaves and restrained blue sky still suggest a day with a light breeze. Raffaëlli thus gives the viewer a unique sense of being transported into a bygone scene, which thanks to its loose brushwork and well-preserved condition, is as vibrant as it was on the day it was painted. --------------- JEAN-FRANÇOIS RAFFAËLLI (1850 Paris 1924) Le quai Malaquais, Paris.

Ausstellung: Hamburg 1906, Grosse Kunstausstellung / Weihnachts-Ausstellung, Kunstverein in Hamburg, Dezember 1906, Nr. 85 (verso mit Etikett). Der französische Maler Jean-François Raffaëlli gehört zu den bedeutsamsten Chronisten von Paris. Dem Realismus verpflichtet, versteht es der Autodidakt hervorragend, die Stadt als atmosphärischen Raum aufzufassen und sie mit charaktervollen Figuren auszustatten. Seine Szenen sprechen eine eigene Sprache, die sowohl das Vergängliche eines Momentes als auch die Schönheit des Alltäglichen darstellt. Diese Ästhetik erreicht der Künstler in einer Kombination von präzisem Duktus und skizzenhafter Komposition, die sich gleichermassen respektvoll vor der Architektur, der Natur, dem Offizier oder dem Hund verneigt. Besonders Letzterer, der kleine Hund mit schwarz-weissem Fell unten rechts, findet sich in mehreren Stadtbildern Raffaëllis wieder. Es scheint als führe der Hund den Betrachter über die verschiedenen Werke durch die Stadt Paris. Im vorliegenden Werk blicken wir vom Quai Malaquais auf die elegante Fassade des Collège des Quatre-Nations, dem Sitz des Instituts de France. Die herbstliche Szene spielt gekonnt mit dem farblichen Umbruch in die grauere Jahreszeit, erinnert mit den sich entlaubenden Bäumen und dem zurückhaltend blau gemalten Himmel aber noch an einen Tag mit leichter Brise. So entführt uns Raffaëlli auf einzigartige Weise in eine längst vergangene Szenerie, die aufgrund des freien Pinselstrichs und des guten Erhaltungszustandes, so lebendig wirkt wie am Tag ihrer Entstehung.
