Jeffrey Smart Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1921 - d. 2013

Born in 1921, artist Jeffrey Smart was to become one of Australia's greatest artists but spend most of his successful career as an expat in Italy. An early student of the South Australian School of Arts and Crafts, and later, the Academie Montmartre in Paris, he absorbed influences from both the world of poetry and painting. The painter Jeffrey Smart responded to T.S. Eliot by creating The Wasteland II, an early working of Smart's vision of urban landscapes. The Modernist symmetry of Dorrit Black's work influenced Smart's eye for symmetry and composition.The depictions of contemporary life such as factories, fences, and vacant lots earned artist Jeffrey Smart the designation of Realist. Yet, Jeffrey Smart's landscapes for sale have been described by many admiring critics as hyper-realistic and surreal. It's his dedication to crafting meticulous representations of the world that is his legacy. Visit riveting depictions of lands and cities by other artists at Invaluable online.

Whether capturing a glimpse of an intriguing shape, a gathering of people on the sidewalk, or the construction of a new bridge along the roadside, Smart's discerning eye translated these images into meticulously detailed sketches and studies, many of which eventuated as larger paintings. One of his favourite locations for painting was the industrial estate near Arezzo in Italy, nestled close to his Tuscan villa and located along a highway linking Rome, Florence and Bologna. While the exact location of this body of work has never been revealed, they each bear a strong resemblance to his other works of the same area, most notably Arezzo Panorama 2002-03 and Parking Lot Near Bologna 1992. It was no secret that Smart drew inspiration from the Italian Renaissance artists and their approach to spatial composition and classical aesthetics. Incorporating geometrically precise and meticulously rendered architectural elements into his paintings, Smart's works often feature carefully arranged buildings, roads and objects, showcasing his understanding of these spatial organisations. Significantly, the Sacra Conversatione holds importance in this study, a theme that emerged during the early Renaissance era in Italy, portraying saints, scholars and patrons in a way that made them physically approachable to general viewers. It has been further suggested by academics that the format of Piero Della Francesca's famous Flagellation of Christ was the prime influence of this piece. Adapting its visual concept, Smart substitutes the ornate posture, attire and classical architecture with contemporary figures engaging in casual conversation - a bare-chested man in jeans, another in a worker's singlet and shorts and a woman in a skirt. The background gives way to 20th century symbols, aligning with the western notion that industrialisation associates with progress and change. The creation of Conversation Piece was born from five painting studies (the first of which is the present lot), a figure drawing and the major final work, all of which unfolded during the period of 1997-1998, when Smart was preparing for a significant retrospective at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. In this work, First Study for 'Conversation Piece', Smart focuses on the simplicity of form, set against a background of vivid blue. The elongated format primarily comprising of contrasting blocks and rectangles, achieving a harmonious balance of form, colour and light. The imposing structure of the long B-double truck sits centrally with the cab on the left-hand side. Smart's iconic palette accentuates the size of the vehicles by the bold use of orange, green and white with the positioning of three conversing figures on the left, from which the artwork derives its name. In his further studies, Smart goes on to explore these subjects further, introducing multiple trucks as layered blocks of colour in the second study, however he soon resolves this by returning to the original idea, as in this first painting, determining this concept to be the best for the final painting. Smart developed a meticulous working process as a tribute to artists of the past that allowed him to achieve his most refined results. First Study for 'Conversation Piece', along with the subsequent studies and the final painting, took centre stage in a major exhibition of Smart's works at Australian Galleries in 1998. This body of work was particularly highlighted for its daring use of primary colours, conveying a timeless sensibility all while narrating a story that is uniquely and undeniably Jeffrey Smart.

            SMART, Jeffrey (1921-2013) 'George O'Dea in the Sun,' 1945. Oil on Canvas 35.5x27cm PROVENANCE: The Private Collection of Barry Pearce, former Head Curator of Australian Art, Art Gallery of New South Wales. EXHIBITIONS: Master of Stillness: Jeffrey Smart Paintings 1940-2011, Carrick Hill and Samstag Museum, Adelaide, 2012, cat. #9, illustrated p.35. OTHER NOTES: An example of portraits of students the artist painted whilst teaching at Goodwood Technical School between 1942 and 1948, desperate to continue evolving his painting skills. A fine example of his ability to capture clear crisp sunlight on frontal forms, but perhaps most interesting is the striped background based on corrugated iron fences in Adelaide which he picked up from fellow South Australian painter Max Ragless. Those flat striped areas were an important coefficient of energy that persisted throughout his career for the purpose of holding compositions steady, including a self-portrait of 1940, and culminating in one of his greatest masterpieces, 'Corrugated Gioconda,' 1976, in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia.

            JEFFREY SMART (1921-2013) Drawing Study for The Waiting Bus c.1986 pencil on paper signed, with dedication lower right: For Neil with / immense gratitude & affection, / Jeffrey Smart 18 x 24cm PROVENANCE: Gift from the artist to Neil Leveson, Melbourne The Collection of Dr. Lynne Leveson, Melbourne OTHER NOTES: When looking at an artwork of Jeffrey Smart's, we may not immediately think of the considered sketches and drawings that took place prior. The adjustments, refinements, and spontaneous scribbles of the pencil that occurred on paper to experiment with an idea to the point of completion are often filled with invaluable insights. Some of Smart's drawings express a fleeting thought, others are considered and intimate artworks, to be viewed as original creations in their own right. Smart believed vehemently in the tradition of studio drawing, and that draughtsmanship was essential to the success of painting. "It is my conviction that great painting is based on good drawing. A poor draughtsman cannot be a great painter"(1) After returning to Australia to present his solo exhibition with Australian Galleries in 1986, Smart decided to explore the print medium for the first time resulting in one of his most recognisable images, The Waiting Bus. The final image produced a lithographic print in collaboration with master printmaker, Neil Leveson. Jeffrey provided Neil with a preliminary sketch, illustrating the overall composition with notes for colour preferences, as presented here as lot 12. There are only minor changes from this sketch to the final lithograph. While intended for the specific purpose of becoming a lithograph, The Waiting Bus design exemplifies Smart's meticulous attention to architectural details and the urban landscape, reinforced in this preparatory drawing. Tonal variations and texture in The Waiting Bus image are clearly defined, details that could only be reproduced accurately by a lithography stone. This process also offered Smart a collaborative dimension to his artistic process, engaging in a dialogue that extended beyond the solitary act of painting. Printmaking allowed Smart to tap into the technical expertise of printers and embrace the possibilities afforded by the medium, becoming an integral part of his later career. Depicted in an urban landscape, the yellow bus patiently awaits its passengers at an otherwise desolate bus top. Filled with a sense of anticipation, the viewers are faced with a T-intersection and a series of signs and arrows. Steeped in symbolism, Smart invites the viewer to consider The Waiting Bus as a quiet moment in time amidst the urban chaos. The stark architectural elements create visual tension, contrasting the warm and inviting yellow of the bus with the various greys of the landscape, reinforcing the sense of isolation amidst the hustle and bustle of city life. The Waiting Bus exemplifies Smart's innate ability to highlight the quiet beauty found within the ordinary and everyday. The decision to ultimately produce The Waiting Bus as a print highlights Smart's artistic evolution and willingness to explore new mediums. Being able to understand his process further through this dedicated preparatory sketch, is invaluable and forms an important part of the artist's oeuvre.

ESSAY Few paintings better exemplify Jeffrey Smart’s pictorial intelligence and wit than this image of a pristine traffic intersection before a double-storey modern townhouse. There is no mistaking we are in Italy, on the outskirts of a town or city, and it is late afternoon on an idyllic summer’s day. The artist even alludes to a theme used by painters who evoked the melancholy Italian verse of the poet Shelley: this is a moonrise picture.1   Smart had been settled near Arezzo for seven years when he produced this painting. Familiarity with the area saw him directing attention upon otherwise unremarkable motifs passed daily in his car: traffic signs, bus stops, overpasses, apartment blocks. For him they represented a sort of mute theatrical cast, objects he might deploy in different combinations across pictures. The creative challenge in working this way was to develop a striking design, hitting upon a visual drama that might serve as a source of endless fascination.   The solitary townhouse in this study is an invention. There was no small building precariously sited on a traffic island. Instead the artist devised it from architectural drawings in his sketch books, then finished his paint with an orange hue and shadows to convey illumination from a setting summer sun. The accompanying road markings—which feature in several 1970s paintings—are adapted from the Arezzo turnoff on the A1 motorway from Rome to Florence. The artist used variants of this configuration to display his mastery of geometry, always having one edge curve gracefully upward. Optically he also used turnoff markings to lead the viewer’s eye through the centre of his compositions, while also stabilising an overall design. The remaining elements in this study are five signs and a very distant building. Smart positions them evenly along his horizon line, using colour and size to highlight the ‘No Entry’ traffic sign on the left of centre. With it Smart uses the white bar against red to echo the horizon behind, while he has the sign’s circular shape also rhyme visually with the adjacent ascending moon, an identically sized blue disc in the serene sky.   The artist graded this particular work as a ‘second’ study. Smart’s initial studies—some of them pencil drawings, others small oil sketches—will employ one or more motifs he intended to use in a picture. But they can show him grasping for a definitive composition. Props are still being moved around his stage, the backdrop is undecided, lighting is yet to be confirmed. Then comes Smart’s so-called ‘second’ study. Technically it might be more than the second variant on a theme, but this tasty piece sees him cement the picture’s design. It amounts to the dress rehearsal. Objects are placed and posed like actors with, apart from a few details, the visual elements seen in their final settings. So, as visual summations of a major composition, his ‘second’ studies are hardly to be classed as lesser pictures. Indeed, as this Second Study for House at Intersection, 1977 shows, certain studies by Jeffrey Smart amount to minor masterpieces.   1. Smart would quote snatches of Shelley’s verse in conversation, sometimes explaining how Italy had inspired particular lines.   DR CHRISTOPHER HEATHCOTE © courtesy of The Estate of Jeffrey Smart 2023

I like living in the 20th century – to me, the world has never been more beautiful. I am trying to paint the real world I live in, as beautifully as I can, with my own eye.’1   Although deriving his subject matter from all that would appear disturbing about the modern world – bleak highways, industrial landscapes inhabited by motorised traffic, and an impersonal contemporary architecture that seems unforgiving to human presence – Smart’s paintings are quite assuredly not commentaries upon urban alienation or the human condition. To the contrary, Smart rejoices in the beauty and oddity he perceives within the contemporary urban environment, translating momentary glimpses of the everyday into impeccably composed harmonies of colour, shape and line – all imbued with originality, irony and an inescapable feeling of expectancy. Elaborating upon his fascination with airports in particular, Smart observed: ‘Aerodromes are beautiful and exciting places, especially in a side light or on a misty day when they assume a threatening atmosphere.’2 As encapsulated by the superb example on offer, one of the most intriguing aspects of Smart’s airport paintings is the stark contrast between the almost total anonymity of the scenes depicted, and the inordinate specificity of their titles.3 Frequently observed by the artist through a window while seated on board a plane or in the waiting lounge, these works are invariably populated with generic images of workmen in overalls refuelling aircraft or involved in arcane systems of signalling (as featured here), control towers, airport car parks and observation decks. And yet, titles such as  Fiumicino Car Park, 1976;  Madras Airport, 1979;  Night Stop, Bombay, 1981 and  The Terrace, Madrid Airport, 1984 – 85 all suggest very precise points of departure.   Like his artistic mentor Cézanne, Smart’s priority has always been the pursuit of the consummate composition and certainly, nowhere is this commitment to  disegno or draughtsmanship as the basis of his art more poignantly illustrated than in the evolution of Madras Airport. The crystallisation of a specific ‘moment of enchantment’, the final composition was preceded by at least three oil studies, including the present which documents the artist’s experiments with a reversed format and the substitution of different colours for the figures’ overalls. In the final interpretation, Smart would also omit the partially-obscured observation deck and terminal featured here, replacing it with a similarly half-concealed aircraft waiting on the tarmac to the left and garish pink oil tanker on the right. Significantly, a further figure study in oil of potential poses for the three airport workmen reveals, moreover, that Smart’s partner of forty years, Ermes de Zan, served as the model.   That much of Smart’s vast oeuvre fervently celebrates the mechanisms of travel is perhaps not surprising given his lifetime spent as an expatriate. Betraying a sense of place that is at once ambiguous yet strangely familiar, indeed such iconography ‘to some extent reflects his own inveterate travelling as a post-modern figure…’4 As eminent commentator on Smart’s work, Peter Quartermaine elucidates, ‘…For such figures, travel, whether voluntary or enforced, is counterbalanced by an inner sense of loss against which is shored what Salman Rushdie envisages as ‘imaginary homelands’…’5   1.
