Title  Oil painting on canvas antique boats and windmill European riverscape indistinct signature early 1900's

  

  

Description

Original Oil painting on canvas antique boats and windmill early 1900's European riverscape with indistinct signature  LRC. 

The canvas is stretched on a hand adzed wooden frame consistent with 18th century woodwork.

It is common practice to overpaint on top of an old antique canvas painting and this may have been the case. However the landscape painting is very good quality  and has been signed by the artist to the front and again on the back of the canvas.

I wonder what lies beneath perhaps an old master's masterpiece??.....

Title  Majestic sculptureof a standing lion attributed to Armand Fagotto glazed finish terracotta circa 1910

  

  

Description

Original heavy majestic sculptureof a standing lion attributed to Armand Fagotto with original rare glazed finish in terracotta circa 1910

 

Armand Fagotto lived and worked mainly in France during the late 19th century and the early 20th century. His sculptures are very recognizable and he has a talent for powerfully sculpting predator animals on rocks. He lets the strength of the animals come to the fore through the use of precise yet flowing lines.

This hand sculpted terracotta although unsigned and may have been a test piece for particular fired glaze colours and how they perform visually on the sculpture. A number of well documented sculptures signed by Fagotto show the same flowing majesty .

Title   Original oil on board of the famous painting Officer of the Hussars the Charging Chasseur , signed framed

Description

Original oil on board of the famous painting entitled Officer of the Hussars the Charging Chasseur signed framed

 

Signed by the the artist Lower left .

 

The original is entitled The Charging Chasseur, an Officer of the Imperial Horse Guards Charging is an oil painting on canvas of about 1812 by the French painter Théodore Géricault, portraying a mounted Napoleonic cavalry officer who is ready to attack.

The painting was Géricault's first exhibited work and it is an example of Géricault's attempt to condense both movement and structure in its art. It represents French romanticism and has a motif similar to Jacques-Louis David's Napoleon Crossing the Alps, but non-classical characteristics of the picture include its dramatic diagonal arrangement and vigorous paint handling.

In The Charging Chasseur, the horse appears to be rearing away from an unseen attacker. The turning figure on a rearing horse is derived from the large early Rubens Saint George (Museo del Prado, 1605–07), though there the view is from the side.

Mounted in carved gilt painted frame.

Title   Set of four engravings of Roman Emperor medallions in gilt frames after Jegher-Goltzius woodcuts

 


Description

Set of four engraving Antique Roman Emperor coins in gilt frames after Jegher-Goltzius woodcuts of the 17th century. 

Mounted under glass and in gilt frame.

These are reprints of the original chiarusco woodcut (with brown tone) combined with a line etching, on a verge type hand laid paper.

The original print originates from an edition of Hubert Goltzius' 'Icones Imperatorum Romanorum' (this edition is not dated). The first edition of this work was published between 1557 and 1560 in Antwerp by J. Coppens van Diest. Given the appearance of eg. Rudolph II in this edition, some portraits were added after Goltzius' time in later editions. Artists and Engravers: Hubert Goltzius is often credited with etching the portraits. Christoffel Jegher made the woodcuts. Christoffel Jegher (1596-1652/3) was a wood engraver born at Antwerp. He worked for Rubens from 1627 and is probably a pupil of Christoffel van Sichem. Hubert Goltzius (1526-1583) was a Dutch humanist author, antiquarian and numismatist. He was born in Venlo, and studied under Lambert Lombard in Liege and later in Antwerp. He settled in Bruges in 1558 and starts publishing several works on ancient numismatics.

Description

An oil on canvas painted after the noted Danish artist Jenns Juel (1745-1802) . The original portait painting is in the State Museum of Art in Copenhagen .

Jens Juel painted this portrait of a lady with pearl earrings in 1766 and it is remarkable . The noble visage of a lady with fair skin and with fine lacework collar and lace hat peers out at you from the canvas.

She is quite a nordic beauty and knowingly glances with pride whilst wearing a very large pearl earring, a rarity in its age in Europe. She would grace any home.

The original painting is named as

"A GIRL FROM HOLSTEIN"

This exquisite hand painted danish oil painting on canvas is dated 1927 on the back of the canvas. it is identical even in size to the original 1766 painting .

Title Monolithic carved basalt marble Caryatid figure of an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Life size

Dimensions

Width 51cm

Height 153cm

Depth 38cm

Description 

Solid carved stone black basalt or marble sculptured figure carved from a single monolithic block.

This rare statue of an ancient Egyptian nobleman as a Visier or Paraoh  and is life size for the period with very well carved proportions.

Extremely heavy as its carved from one solid block of stone and weighs in excess of 300 kg.

the arms are carved from the same single block and the support stone near the wrists is still in place, clearly this is a copy of a period ancient sculpture as this was traditional for most stone sculptures prior to freight and delivery  to prevent breakages and could have been grpund away once the sattue was firmly in place.

As this may have been excavted in the same condition, perhaps from a shipwreck sunk at sea, it makes perfect sense that these connecting points are still attached and that this particular carved replica is ture to the ancient archaeological original in every aspect.
