Jean Louis HamonAurora in white toga smelling a flower. Goddess of Dawn
Jean Louis Hamon artfully presents the mythological subject: Aurora the Goddess of Dawn. She is dressed in a flowing toga, standing on a large leaf and smelling the sweetness of a flower in bloom. Surrounded by lush plants in an idyllic setting of pinks and blues, one would not think that this peaceful and beautiful work was painted in 1864 at the time of the American Civil War. Hamon meticulously renders the the scene with the academic precision of Bouguereau. The closer you get, the more detail you discover. Two butterflies and water droplets adorn Aurora's head. Hamon's work is in the collection of Musée d'Orsay, Brooklyn Museum and others. Excellent. Excellent condition. The work has been relined and cleaned. Some restoration but not visible. A very heavy layer of damar varnish covering the work and protected the work. Now removed it reveals a palette of rich and saturated colors.
