Mihály Zichy Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Illustrator, b. 1827 - d. 1906

Mihály Zichy (German: Michael von Zichy; born 15 October 1827 in Zala, Kingdom of Hungary – died 28 February 1906 in St. Petersburg, Russian Empire) was a Hungarian painter and graphic artist. He is considered a notable representative of Hungarian romantic painting. He lived and worked primarily in St. Petersburg and Paris during his career.

He is known for illustrating the Georgian epic poem The Knight in the Panther's Skin on an 1881 commission by the intelligentsia. By the time he had completed 35 pictures, he was so moved by the poem that he gave his works to the Georgian people as a gift.

During his law studies in Pest from 1842, Zichy attended Jakab Marastoni's art school as well. He went to Vienna to study under Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller in 1844. Lifeboat, his first major work, was painted during this period.

On Waldmüller's recommendation, Zichy was hired as an art teacher in St. Petersburg. He swore allegiance to freedom in 1849 by painting the portrait of Lajos Batthyány, the first Hungarian prime minister. From 1850 onwards, he worked primarily as a retoucher. He also made pencil drawings, water colours, and portraits in oil.

His erotic drawings are noted for having a warm intensity, as both members of the couple seem equal partners. The series on the Gatchina hunting, ordered by the Russian tsar, gained Zichy standing as a court artist. He founded a society to support painters in need. He painted Autodafé (1868) to express the horrors of the Spanish inquisition in earlier centuries. In 1871 he travelled through Europe, settling in Paris in 1874.

He painted Queen Elisabeth Laying Flowers by the Coffin of Ferenc Deák as a commission from Treffort. Drinking Bout of Henry III his next large-scale picture, came in 1875. The Victory of the Genius of Destruction, painted for the Paris Exhibition, was banned by French authorities because of its daring antimilitarist message.

Zichy left Paris in 1881 and returned to St. Petersburg, after short stays in Nice, Vienna and his native Zala.

That year he also visited Tbilisi, Caucasus Viceroyalty (today Georgia). He was commissioned to illustrate the Georgian epic poem, The Knight in the Panther's Skin, at the request of intelligentsia of the country. He painted 35 pictures in total. The publishing commission of the work of The Knight in the Panther's Skin chose 27 pictures to be included in the publication. The painter refused to take payment for the works, because he was so moved by the original poem. Instead, he gave his works to the Georgian people.

From this time onward, Zichy mostly engaged in illustration work. Examples of works he illustrated include The Tragedy of Man by Imre Madách, in 1887, and twenty-four ballads of János Arany, 1894–98.

Hayn-Gotendorf IX, 639. – Nachdruck der 1911 in Leipzig in einer Auflage von 300 nummerierten Exemplaren als Privatdruck erschienenen erotischen Folge des Hofmalers von Zar Alexander II, Mihály von Zichy (1827-1906): "In ganz besonderer Weise interessierte sich Zichy aber für die Darstellung des Geschlechtsaktes. Viele Jahre hat er diesem Studium gewidmet, mit unendlichem Fleiß gearbeitet, tausende Skizzen gemacht, die er, wie Zeitgenossen berichten, wieder vernichtete, weil sie ihn nicht befriedigten, nicht der vollendete Ausdruck dessen waren, was ihm vorschwebte. Er, der die Frauen nicht nur als Künstler, sondern auch als Menschenkenner und Anatom tausendmal beobachtet hatte, wußte nur zu gut, wie schwer es ist, in dem Betrachtenden den Eindruck vollständig restloser Hingabe hervorzurufen" (C. W. Stern, zitiert nach Hayn-Gotendorf). – Wohlerhalten.

He was also very well known for his graphic works. In St. Petersburg, Zichy studied drawing with Princess Ekaterina Mikhailovna. Many of his works dealt with the daily lives of the Czar and his circle, as well as motifs from Russian literature and Hungarian poems. The cycle 'Love' is one of his most famous and rarest erotic works. It was first published in 1911 as an illustrated album, titled Liebe. The drawings themselves were originally owned by Tsar Alexander II, since Zichy was a painter to the Russian court. CONDITION N.B. All lots are sold in as-is condition at the time of sale.
