About

Constantin Guys (1802-1892) "Carriage Ride in the Park" c. 1860s Ink and Wash on Paper Original Labels Verso Site Size: approx. 8 x 11.5 inches Framed Size: approx. 18 x 21.25 inches A painter and illustrator in colorful watercolor and ink washes, Constantin Guys did illustrations that provide a valuable insight into 19th-century life in many locations. He was from Holland and working for the Illustrated London News for many years until 1860, did many drawings from observations in Egypt, Turkey, Germany, Spain, Italy and the Crimea. He died penniless, and was so humble during his career that he did not sign his work, nor did he objects when inferior copies were made for print reproductions. However, during his lifetime, he was lauded by French writer, Charles Baudelaire, and by Impressionist painter, Claude Monet, who admired Guys' composition and modernist style. He mediums were ink washes and watercolors, and he often touched up his work with bright yellows and pinks and dark blues. However, "color is less important to Guys' work than is his lively line, his quick wit, and his ability to portray the life of well-dressed people in fashionable pursuits."
