About the Item

Le Resesquement a l'Advocats (The Legal Reservation) Pastel on paper, c. 1910 signed lower right Image size: 10 3/4 x 14 inches Frame size: 23-1/2 x 26-1/2 x 2-3/8 inches Condition: Good Acid burn to the paper outside of the image from previous framing 22K Gold Leaf frame, natural silk matting and 22K gold fillet with archival framing materials. Glazed with conservation glass Provenance: Bernheim Jeune et Cie, Paris (label, see photo) Private Collection, Buenos Aires References And Exhibitions: Exhibited: Argentina, 1910: "Exposition Internationale du Centenaire a Buenos Aires," Catalogue No. 253 (label, see photo). Note: The Musee D’Orsay (see photo) has a very similar oil painting, "Scene de tribunal", of an elegant woman and lawyer. In the Musee D’Orsay painting the figures are reversed from the current composition. The central female subject wears the same hat as in this example. The Tate Museum has a legal subject matter painting by Forain entitled "Counsel and Accused", dated 1908. In the detailed provenance, the first owner of the painting was Bernheim Jeune & Cie, acquired from the artist. (Tate accession N04789) “From 1900, his palette was also enriched with pathetic courtrooms where, following Daumier, he protested against human injustices. His style becomes even more incisive and the clarity of his impressionist works is replaced by chiaroscuro.”

  • Danseuses a la barre - Impressionist Figurative Pastel - Pierre Carrier-Belleuse
    By Pierre Carrier-Belleuse
    Located in Marlow, Buckinghamshire
    Signed figurative pastel on canvas circa 1910 by French genre painter Pierre Carrier-Belleuse. The work depicts three ballerinas wearing white tutus, warming up in a studio. Carrier-Belleuse was a contemporary of Edgar Degas and they exhibited simultaneously at the major Salons in Paris. This classic example evokes the Belle Epoque period in french history and is superbly executed. Signature: Signed lower right Dimensions: Framed: 29"x24" Unframed: 26"x21" Provenance: Private French collection Pierre Carrier-Belleuse studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Alexandre Cabanel and the interior decorative artist Pierre Victor Galland. He started out as an oil painter and produced genre compositions, such as his Final Rendezvous. From 1885, however, he opted to work exclusively in pastel, producing a large number of sketches and portraits but always remaining faithful to his earlier genre compositions. Examples include Pierrot, Harlequin, Woman with Cat. The periodical Figaro Illustré published a large number of his sketches of dancers, a recurrent theme throughout his work. From 1875, Pierre Carrier-Belleuse exhibited frequently at the Paris Salon, receiving an honourable mention in 1887 and being awarded a silver medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1889.
