Fernand Cormon
The Captive


Despite the stationary central figures, the piece contains an abundance of movement and action, from the rearing horse in the background to the injured man at the feet of the central figures. The stillness and submissive pose of the captive woman are a sharp contrast to the remnants of the fight around her. Her face hidden in her arms in a gesture of fear and anguish as she hovers on the brink of collapse. Signed 'F. Corman' lower left. Provenance: Tajan, Paris, sale of May 15, 2001, lot 106 From a Prominent Midwest Estate
