About

André Castaigne was a French academic painter who was lured to America in about 1890 to pursue a career working for the growing American illustrated magazine market. As Scribner's, Century, Harpers and their upstart competitors started gaining circulation, one of the challenges for art directors was to find talented artists to create the images which drove readers to the magazines. André Castaigne was one of the most notable artists to emigrate and make his name in the new marketplace. This work--while conceived in grey tones to be reproduced in black and white print form--is alarmingly delicate and intricate and full of detail. The image shows the star-crossed lovers Mark Antony and Cleopatra in a gauzy opulent Egyptian interior, with nude maidens cavorting and playing musical instruments. This is dated 1911 and singed in the lower left corner and is an interior illustration - likely for either Scribner's or the Century Magazine. Handsomely framed and the verso shows an untouched canvas stretched on the original pine stretcher bars. Sight Size 20 1/2" X 30 1/2" Framed 24 1/4" X 34 1/4"
