Reclining Figure in Plaster by Matthew Smith


The English painter, Matthew Smith, 1879-1959, spent much of the period up to the Second World War working in France. Shortly after finishing at the Slade school in 1908, he arrived in Brittany - moving on to Paris in 1910 where he briefly attended the Atelier Matisse. Always a great admirer of Matisse, Smith no doubt had him in mind when he said that he thought painters make better sculptors than sculptors make painters.
It was while living in Aix in 1936 that Matthew Smith himself turned his hand to sculpture and produced a small series of nude figures in clay. One of these sculptures, a reclining figure, features in a series of paintings from 1938-39, titled, 'Still Life with Clay Figure I-VI', also produced in Aix. The model for the sculpture was Christiane de Mauberg who was also the inspiration for a whole series of portraits in oils in the mid 1930s. Christiane was the daughter of the landlady of the hotel where Smith was living. The clay was probably modelled from memory.
When Smith left France for London in 1941, he entrusted the paintings and the sculptures to various friends in Aix. After the war, he returned to France to retrieve the works - and the series of paintings called 'Still Life with Clay Figure' formed the core of his one-man show at his London dealer, Tooth's, in 1947. (One of the Still lifes with Clay Figure is now in the Tate Gallery, London and another is in Southampton Art Gallery.) He left the original clay figure with his friend, the painter Harry Morton Colvile, telling him he could keep it.
In 1960 after Smith's death, Morton Colvile decided to have the clay figure cast in bronze at a local foundry. As far as is known, only two casts were made from the mould - one in plaster and one in bronze. The clay figure was presumed destroyed in the process. The bronze is in a private collection. This current lot is the recently discovered plaster casting.

SIR MATTHEW SMITH (1879-1959)

Lot 76: SIR MATTHEW SMITH (1879-1959)

Auction Date: Jun 28, 2018

Estimate: £7,000 - £10,000

Description: SIR MATTHEW SMITH (1879-1959) Portrait of Dudley Wallis  signed with initials 'MS' (lower left) oil on canvas  30 1/2 x 25 in. (77.5 x 63.5 cm.) Painted circa 1936.  Provenance: Dudley Wallis, 1936 [?]. with Arthur Tooth & Sons, London, where purchased by  Sir David Scott, 13 September 1960 for £550.  A great British collection: the pictures collected by Sir David and Lady Scott, Sotheby's, London, 19 November 2008, lot 172.  Private collection, London.  Private collection, North Yorkshire.  Literature:  J. Glendhill, Catalogue Catalogue Raisonné of the Oil Paintings of Matthew Smith with a Critical Introduction of his Work, Farnham, 2009, p. 189, no 471, illustrated.  Artist's Resale Right may apply on this lot. In November 1936, the year Portrait of Dudley Wallis was completed, the Telegraph reviewer of Smith’s exhibition at the Tooth’s defined him as ‘the most exciting of British post-war painters.’ (quoted in M. Yorke, Matthew Smith: His life and Reputation, London, 1997, p. 155.) Smith’s fame and reputation had been growing over the 20s, securing him his dealer and a retrospective exhibition in 1929. Smith spent most of the 30s in France, travelling to London to see friends and arrange exhibitions. The present work was probably finished at the same visit as the Tooth’s exhibition in 1936. It was a particularly successful one with the Tate buying Model Turning on this occasion and Kenneth Clark, then a rising star in the art establishment, also acquiring two paintings for his personal collection. Dudley Wallis had been an ardent admirer and collector of Smith’s work since the late 1920s and amassed a considerable collection. (ibid, p. 136. ). He was the curator at the Holburne Museum in Bath from November 1913-1917, where he oversaw the moving of the museum to its purpose built current home on Great Pulteney Street. In the 20s he went on to be the Director of the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester. Portrait of Dudley Wallis is a great example of Smith’s mature style marked by masterful use of bold colours. The pigments are wonderfully luminous, creating a strong composition where one can hardly separate the idea of the colour from the feel of the paint or either from the subject painted. The figure is almost sculpturally moulded with thick contours defining the suit. The delicate rendering of the facial features is directly contrasted by the rapid brushstrokes in the blue background or the almost abstracted areas of impasto defining the curtain and chair. The figure emerges through confident brushstrokes, where colour equals light and light equals space - the picture possesses particular rhythm that pulls the viewer in....
