Oranges - 19th Century Neoclassical Portrait Oil Painting of Young Roman Girl

1880

About

This is a large fine oil 19th century oil on canvas depicting a young woman of Ancient Rome in a sheer subucula tunic selling ‘Oranges’ by the Victorian neoclassical painter Arthur Hill RBA (1820-1920). The painting is signed and dated by the artist, and hangs in a newly commissioned bespoke fine quality gilt metal leaf frame. Every work of art sold by Academy Fine Paintings is offered in the finest condition it can be for its age, having just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished by one of the UK's most experienced fine art conservators. Clients should also note that all packaging and tracked and signed-for priority international shipping is complimentary. Arthur Hill was a renowned painter of ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Roman scenes typically depicting poor yet always alluring young women. Like John William Godward, Ernest Normand, and Thomas Ralph Spence, Hill was greatly influenced by the great Olympian masters of British neoclassical painting Lord Leighton and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, but unlike them he chose to portray young working women rather than the idle rich. Arthur Hill exhibited 26 paintings at the Royal Academy and 28 at the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Royal Society of British Artists of which organisation he was a member. Dimensions: (framed) 109cm x 79cm (42¾” x 31”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 91cm x 61cm (35¾” x 24”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private US collection. Presentation: Fine neoclassical gilt metal leaf frame. All of the new frames we commission are especially made for us to order by one of the UK’s top period frame makers. Condition: Excellent. Newly professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Ready to hang.
