About

‘The Lute Player’ by Jacques Martin (1844-1910). This large 19th century French oil painting is signed by the artist and presented in a superb quality, newly commissioned, gold metal leaf Post-Impressionist frame. For centuries the lute has featured as a powerful symbol of female sexuality in European art, the word lute – or “luit” – being Flemish for vagina. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned, restored and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Born in Lyon, Jacques Martin was a pupil of François Vernay who was an important artist in the development of many Impressionist painters from the South of France. Pierre Puvis de Chavannes was one of Martin’s first admirers. From 1881 Jacques Martin exhibited at numerous salons in Lyon and Paris, and was notably one of the artists selected to exhibit at the Universal Exhibition of 1894. Martin developed a free Impressionist style similar to that of his contemporary Auguste Renoir, especially in his portrayal of the female nude. In 1904 he founded the Salon d'Automne in Lyon and exhibited at the International Exhibition of Fine Arts of 1914. Dimensions: (framed) 91cm x 111cm (35¾” x 43¾”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 73cm x 93cm (28¾” x 36¾”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private French collection. Presentation: Newly commissioned bespoke gold 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, restored, and re-varnished. Ready to hang.
