LEON-VICTOR SOLON (British/American. 1873-1957 ) Portrait of Miss Alice Anderton

Lot 83: LEON-VICTOR SOLON (British/American. 1873-1957 ) Portrait of Miss Alice Anderton

Auction Date: Feb 15, 2020

Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000

Description: Portrait of Miss Alice Anderton, 1911. Signed lower right. Pastel on Gray Paper Mounted to Canvas. Measuring 56 by 39 in., in a gilt wood period frame 61 by 44 in. cf. LEON-VICTOR SOLON, son of the renowned ceramist Marc-Louis Solon, was an English painter, ceramist, and graphic artist who worked both in Europe and in the States and is best known for being a purveyor of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. The offered lot, an almost life-sized portrait of Miss Anderton, the daughter of New York City Socialites Mrs. and Dr. William B. Anderton, was painted by Solon to celebrate her engagement to Mr. Jules Montant. Painted facing right in an almost 3/4 view, Miss Anderton sits before a wall decorated in a stylized japonesque mode. Dressed an elegant kimono- like robe decorated with foliage and birds in flight complements the background. The portrait was reproduced on the cover of Town & Country, May 27, 1911, vol. 66, number 11. As stated " ...This portrait of Miss Anderton by Mr. Solon is a pastel in life-size and is unique in style having much to recommend it in it's decorative features aside from its value as a likeness. The kimono is soft, blue and with a touch of rose at the throat. The background of gray Japanese silk with dragons in gold are all in harmony with Miss Andertons beauty of which red-gold hair is an attribute. Miss Anderton's marriage to Mr. Montant was, for reasons unknown, short lived. The painting was returned to the artist, Mr. Solon who during the 1940s left New York City to retire in Lakeland, FL. Having chosen to keep the portrait, it appeared hanging in Mr. Solon home, in a photograph of the artist, reproduced in the Lakeland Ledger during the 1950's. Sometime after it's appearance in the paper, perhaps after Mr. Solons death in 1957, the portrait was acquired by a prominent Lakeland comunity leader, where it has hung until removed recently for this auction. Estate found and fresh to the market, this portrait is being publicly shown for the first time since it'sreturn to the Artist, Leon-Victor Solon....
