About the Item

Charles Emile JACQUE (Paris 1813 - 1894) Two sheeps, studies Black chalk on paper 9 x 17 cm Framed 33 x 38 cm Charles Emile Jacque was born in 1813 in Paris. He was part of the first generation of painters to leave Paris for Barbizon and the forest of Fontainebleau. Charles Jacque was also a founding and influential member of the “Men of 1830” (also called l’Ecole francaise du paysage), an artistic movement who, spurred on by the Revolution of 1830, sought out new directions in landscape painting. His strong, realistic, yet sensitive depictions of shepherds and their flocks form one of the most cohesive and important bodies of work produced by the movement. During the 1840s, he and his friend, Jean-Francois Millet moved to the village of Barbizon where they felt they could more realistically portray nature. Jacque bought a house there and, influenced by Narcisse Diaz’s technique and Francisque Millet’s themes, he found his inspiration in hen-houses, pigsties and flocks of sheep at pasture.. He left Barbizon in 1854 and continued to paint in the outskirts of Paris until he died on May 7, 1894. Works by his hand are held by numerous museums such as Baltimore Museum of Art, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, in Boston, Cincinnati Museum of Fine Art, Edinburgh, National Gallery of Scotland, Glasgow Museum of Art, Kansas City, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Metropolitan Museum of Artin New York, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford University, Philadelphia Museum of Art and of course at the Musée du Louvre and Musée d’Orsay in Paris

  • Attributed to Francesco Casanova (1727-1803), A Mamluk fighting , watercolor
    By Francesco Giuseppe Casanova
    Located in Paris, FR
    Attributed to Francesco Casanova (1727-1803), A Mamluk fighting on his horse, watercolor and ink on paper 35 x 26 cm In quite good condition : yellowed by time as visible on the photographs. Vintage frame with little damages (see photographs please), the mat and the back have been recently changed. 54 x 44 cm The first indication about attribution was given by the name indicated on the vintage frame with what could look as a mistake about the date of death of the artist, if the exact date of Francesco Casanova'death was not known with certainty. It's estimated he died at the beginning of the 19th century, Maybe in 1803, 1805 or as late as 1807. The style and execution are really close to the artist's known compositions, the way he draws the horse for example. Francesco Giuseppe Casanova was an Italian painter who specialised in battle scenes. His older brother was Giacomo Casanova, the famous adventurer, and his younger brother was Giovanni Casanova; also a well-known painter. He was born in London, and returned to Venice when he was still young,upon his brother Giovanni's advice, he went to Paris and became an apprentice of Charles Parrocel. As a result of favourable criticism from Denis Diderot, he began to receive commissions from the aristocracy. His fame soon spread eastward and he received commissions from Catherine the Great for the Hermitage, beginning in 1768. Two years later, he produced his four famous "disaster paintings...
