Franz Xaver Winterhalter Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Lithographer, Landscape painter, b. 1805 - d. 1873

(b Black Forrest, Germany, 1805; d Frankfort, Germany, 1873) German Painter. Winterhalter was born to a peasant family in Germany's Black Forest. He obtained a scholarship to study at the prestigious Munich Academy at the age of nineteen. In the early 1830’s, he traveled to Italy; executing numerous drawings and watercolors, which would provide a store of imagery for future paintings. After settling in France in 1834, he began to exhibit paintings at the Paris Salon; in 1836 he won a second-class medal for a picture of a Neopolitan fisherman's family. By the 1850s and 60s, Franz Xavier Winterhalter was celebrated as the leading portraitist of Europe's nobility and royalty. His elegant, flattering likenesses of Victoria of Britain, Louis Philippe and Napoleon III of France, Isabella of Spain, and the royal families of Russia and Germany remain among the principal records of his era.

X. Winterhalter h: 89,50 w: 70 cm Provenance : Donné par le roi au comte de Sainte-Aulaire en 1847, selon un cartel fixé au dos du cadre ; Vente anonyme ; Paris, Hôtel Drouot, Binoche & Giquello, 4 juin 2010, n° 37 ; Vente anonyme ; Paris, Hôtel Drouot, Collin du Bocage, 8 juin 2016, n° 59 ; Acquis lors de cette vente par l'actuel propriétaire ; Collection particulière, Paris Commentaire : " Le portrait de cette année est un des meilleurs qu'on est fait de Sa Majesté. La tête est étudiée avec un soin minutieux ; toutes les formes de ce caractère si rempli d'intelligence, ce regard si perçant, toute cette bonhomie royale si difficile à rendre […] " 'L'Artiste', 1839, p. 256. Au Salon de 1839, l'exposition du portrait du roi Louis-Philippe peint par Winterhalter remporta un vif succès (château de Versailles, MV 5219). Pour faire suite aux portraits du roi exécutés par Horace Vernet en 1832 et le baron Gérard en 1834, la couronne cherchait un nouveau portraitiste et se tourna vers le peintre allemand, célébré par les cours européennes de son temps et récemment installé en France. En 1839, l'artiste exécuta également le 'Portrait du roi en habit bourgeois' (collection du château de Balleroy), image plus informelle et intime du souverain. Après l'engouement suscité par ces premières commandes royales, Winterhalter représenta de nombreux membres de la famille du roi. Destiné au musée Historique de Versailles, le grand tableau du Salon de 1839 devint l'effigie officielle de Louis-Philippe, qui fut largement diffusée par Winterhalter et son atelier. Ces différentes versions en pieds, réduites de trois-quarts ou en bustes étaient destinées aux ambassades, aux préfectures, aux mairies ou aux proches du roi. Le modèle fut grandement popularisé par la gravure et même reproduit en miniatures pour des tabatières et des bracelets, et sur des vases en porcelaine de Sèvres. Notre belle version autographe, signée, datée de 1847 et vraisemblablement réalisée avec la participation de l'atelier, reprend le portrait du roi en buste. Vêtu de l'uniforme de Lieutenant général, il arbore le cordon rouge de la légion d'honneur qui lui barre la poitrine et les insignes de Grand-Croix et de l'Ordre de Léopold, créé par l'époux de sa fille aînée, le roi Léopold Ier de Belgique. De sa main gauche, il tient son bicorne noir bordé de plumes d'autruche et décoré de la cocarde tricolore. Ce portrait a été commandé par Louis-Philippe pour être offert à Louis-Clair de Beaupoil, comte de Sainte-Aulaire (1778-1854), ambassadeur de France à Londres et ami proche du souverain. Ce tableau est mentionné par le comte de Sainte-Aulaire dans une lettre adressée à son fils aîné Louis (1810-1896), député de la Dordogne, en date du 9 août 1847. L'ambassadeur, rentré de Londres le mois précédent, lui raconte : " J'ai été voir M. Clailleux [?] pour le portrait du Roi et j'ai été assez désappointé d'apprendre qu'il serait en buste. Cela est plus facile à déplacer, mais cela est moins monumental. Enfin je ne suis pas gâté sur les cadeaux […]. (La Courneuve, Archives diplomatiques, 250 PAAP, article 5, Comte Louis de Sainte-Aulaire, 'Registre de sa correspondance personnelle, août 1847 - octobre 1754', fol. 5) " Ce tableau est un témoignage précieux de la reconnaissance du roi à celui qui le représenta en Angleterre de 1841 à 1847 et qui joua un rôle de premier ordre dans la mise en place de l'Entente Cordiale entre la France et l'Angleterre. Louis-Philippe fut reconnu en tant que roi des français par la reine Victoria et se rendit à Windsor en 1844. Ce voyage fit l'objet d'un recueil de lithographies publié par Edouard-Henri Théophile Pingret en 1846. L'une d'entre elle représente le roi dans sa chambre au château de Windsor, aux côtés du comte de Sainte-Aulaire et de François Guizot, ministre des Affaires étrangères (voir huile sur carton préparatoire à l'estampe, musée du Louvre, inv.

          Franz Xaver Winterhalter, Portrait of Gabrielle de Lagrené

          Est: €50,000 - €70,000

          Signed and dated lower left: FXWinterhalter / Paris 1853 (FXW conjoined) Franz Xaver Winterhalter - there was hardly another portrait painter of the 19th century as influential as the German artist from the tranquil Black Forest region. Like perhaps only that of Thomas Lawrence before him, his career being an artistic event of pan-European dimensions. His portraits of Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary ("Sisi", ill. 1) or Queen Victoria, whom he painted many times, have shaped their image as young monarchs to this day. Queen Victoria was convinced at Winterhalter's death that posterity would one day equate his works with those of Anthony van Dyck. Franz Xaver Winterhalter's career as a portrait painter of the European aristocracy was straightforward and rapid. His training at the academy in Karlsruhe (1819) was followed by enrolment at the Munich Art Academy and entry into Josef Stieler's studio. In 1834 he was appointed court painter to the Grand Duke of Baden, but by the end of the year he had already moved to Paris - at that time he was barely 30 years old. He was soon painting the monarchs, princes and rulers of Europe: King Louis Philippe of France, Leopold I, King of the Belgians, Queen Victoria, later Emperor Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie, as well as members of the high nobility from France, Germany, England and Russia. Queen Victoria and the English royal family are among his most important clients. Winterhalter commuted at times between the metropolises of Paris, London and Brussels, with detours to Baden-Baden and other European cities. During the months he spent in England, he took up residence at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle. When Winterhalter painted the portrait of the young Gabrielle de Lagrené in 1853, he was at the height of his creative powers. After Napoléon III's self-proclamation as Emperor of the French the year before, he was commissioned to paint his official state portrait (fig. 2), and a year later he was appointed imperial court painter - making him one of the leading artists of Second Empire Paris. The oval portrait of Gabrielle de Lagrené is an exemplary commission of the kind Winterhalter carried out for the French nobility, who sought to have their own daughters portrayed like the style-defining monarchs and princesses of the time. Gabrielle was the eldest daughter of Théodose, Comte de Lagrené, a high-ranking French diplomat and Pair de France, and Marie Varinska de Doubinski (Doubenskaïa), lady-in-waiting to the Russian Tsarina. Lagrené was stationed, among other places, in St Petersburg, Darmstadt and Beijing, where he negotiated the Treaty of Huangpu with China in 1844. Gabrielle was born in Darmstadt in 1835, so she was 18 years old when the portrait was painted, and this was probably the reason for its commission. The portrait unites all the qualities of Winterhalter's portraits of women for which he was so highly esteemed: the balance between idealisation and individuality in the rendering of the face; the elegance of the figure's composition within the oval surround; the tactile quality in the depiction of the precious fabrics, especially the sumptuous organza shawl; and not least the fluid enamel-like rendering of the skin of the face and the soft dark hair that frames it.

          Franz Xaver Winterhalter (1805-1873) – Attributed, The Girl from Montii Sabini

          Est: €1,500 - €3,000

          This breathtaking depiction of an Italian girl resting in the shade of a tree is one of the most evocative and important works by the German painter, Franz Xaver Winterhalter. The subject is the figure of a sleeping girl with her hands behind her head. She is shown in three-quarter length, leaning against a tree, with an earthenware jug partially obscured by vines at her side, and a distant landscape in the background. The work is executed in a rich palette of bold colours, with brilliantly rendered details of costume, jewelery and headdress contrasting with the serene beauty of the sleeping facial features. The effect is enhanced by the soft skin tones and bravura brushwork in rendering the hair under the headdress, the striking gold earring, the eagle hairpiece and the apron embroidery. Winterhalter's ability to capture the qualities of the diverse textiles that make up her costume—cotton, suede, satin, and velvet—foreshadows his mastery of depicting the elaborate robes that adorn the subjects of his later formal portraits.

Franz Xaver Winterhalter et les cours d’Europe de 1830 à 1870, National Portrait Gallery, London 1988, S. 154 und 218, Nr. 80 (mit Abb.). Von Anmut und Eleganz geprägt und zugleich mit stolzem Blick porträtiert Franz Xaver Winterhalter die hier dargestellte junge Amerikanerin. Der Familienüberlieferung nach handelt es sich bei der Dame um die letzte Verlobte Franz Xaver Winterhalters (Ausst.-Kat 1988, S. 218). Obwohl es keine konkreten Hinweise für die Verlobung des damals über sechzigjährigen Künstlers gibt, liegt jedoch nahe, dass eine persönliche Beziehung zwischen der Porträtierten und dem Maler bestand. Seit Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts liess sich eine Vielzahl amerikanischer Reisender von europäischen Künstlern porträtieren. Auch von Winterhalter sind mindestens vier Gemälde bekannt, auf denen er amerikanische Modelle porträtierte – darunter das Gemälde "Mlle Strahter de Kentucki" von 1850. Obgleich das hier angebotene Gemälde nicht datiert ist, ist es dem Kunsthistoriker Dr. Eugene Barilo von Reisberg möglich, die Entstehung des Werks zeitlich sehr konkret zwischen 1868 und 1869 einzuordnen. Seine Annahme begründet er zum einen mit der verwendeten Kleidung und dem aufwendigen Haarschmuck der Dame, der sehr typisch für die späten 1860er-Jahre und frühen 1870er-Jahre war. Zum anderen trägt der auf der Leinwand befindliche Stempel von Henry et Cré, einem Pariser Leinwandlieferant, dazu bei, die Datierung so genau fixieren zu können. So verwendete der Betrieb jenes Händlers diesen bestimmten Stempel nur für die Zeitperiode von 1868 bis 1869. Im Genre der Porträtmalerei zählt Winterhalter im 19. Jahrhundert zu den renommiertesten Künstlern. Er fertigt eine Vielzahl von Bildnissen für aristokratische Persönlichkeiten an, darunter für das britische, spanische und österreichische Königshaus sowie für den französischen Königshof. Winterhalters Kontakte zur Adelsgesellschaft finden sich bereits in dessen Jugendjahren. Während seiner Ausbildung im baden-württembergischen St. Blasien wird Grossherzog Ludwig I. auf sein künstlerisches Talent aufmerksam und ermöglicht ihm ein Stipendium an der Königlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste in München. Es folgen Stationen als Zeichenlehrer Sophie von Badens (1801–1865) und als badischer Hofmaler unter Grossherzog Leopold (1790–1852) sowie diverse Reisen und Auslandsaufenthalte, die Winterhalter internationale Bewunderung verschaffen. Seine besondere Beliebtheit als Porträtmaler liegt neben der technischen Präzision auch in der schmeichelhaften Darstellungsweise begründet, mit welcher der Maler seine Modelle wiedergibt. Er fängt die jeweiligen Charakteristiken ein und führt diese auf wohlwollende und besonders ästhetische Art und Weise aus. Zeitgenössische Modetrends dienen dabei als unterstützendes Requisit. Das Porträt der Amerikanerin bleibt bis zu Winterhalters Tod in dessen Besitz. Anschliessend erscheint es unter der Nummer 9 im Nachlass seines Bruders Hermann Winterhalters. In der posthum entstandenen Liste von Winterhalters Werk, die dessen Neffe Franz Wild 1894 anfertigt, wird das Gemälde ebenfalls unter selbigem Titel erwähnt.
