Charles George Nicholls - Watercolour 1805 - Palace on the Ganges, Anglo - India
By Charles George Nicholls
Located in Meinisberg, CH
Charles George Nicholls (English, flourished 1792 - 1818) Picturesque Gangetic Landscape in India • Circa 1805 • Watercolour on thick paper, ca. 20 x 49.5 cm • Mounted behind a modern passpartout, visible image ca. 19 x 49 cm • Original Georgian frame (newly glassed) , ca. 39 x 70 cm • Signed lower left corner Worldwide shipping is complimentary - There are no additional charges for handling & delivery. Very detailed watercolor painting - note how light reflecting off the water surface was skillfully created by scratching the paper surface. Charles G(J)eorge Nicholls, originally a merchant seaman, was a contemporary of Thomas and William Daniell, and like them, he made several sketching trips whilst in India, including up the Dohab, which is from where this drawing appears to be of. He worked as draughtsman for the East India Company based in Calcutta and was also employed by the Office of the Surveyor-General, where he was involved in the Survey of Orissa, South Bengal. Unfortunately bad eyesight truncated his career and he returned to England in 1815. Nicholls signed his middle name’George’ using a ‘G’, aswell as a ‘J.’ Nicholl’s work surfaces from time to time and can command high prices at auction – especially for his Indian landscapes. For example, a drawing by Nicholls ( a page of an album) was auctioned by Sotheby's (Valuable Printed Books, June 1997, Lot 407), or a series of water coulours were auctioned by Christie's (Visions of India, June 1998) and in September 2000 two small drawings were auctioned again by Christie's (Exploration & Travel with Visions of India). Also, I know there is a unsigned water colour titled 'Bridge over the River Bama by Benares' in the collection of the Oriental & India Office Collections (OICO) at the British Library. Here is a rare opportunity, to acquire a large format watercolor (double album page), featuring a very impressive view of what India looked like over 200 years ago - seen through the eyes of a skilled artist, in employment by the famous East India Company. I also think that as India opens up more and more rapidly to the world and enjoys increasing prosperity, the interest in cultural heritage, trophy objects like the one I am offering here today, will find their way back to India, into a collection or onto a wall in a chic office or luxurious apartment. The water colour drawing...

Pauline Vallayer Moutet (Act. 19th/20thC) 1898 Haystack French Impressionist O/p
By Pauline Vallayer-Moutet
Located in Meinisberg, CH
Pauline Vallayer - Moutet (French, Act. 19th/20thC) Meule de foin (Haystack ) • Oil on panel ca. 25 x 35 cm • Later Frame ca. 52 x 61 cm • Bottom right: Signed, dated & dedicated : '1898 , A Madame Doisneau, Souvenir de la Villeneuve , sa bien afféctionée , P. Valayer - Moutet ' Worldwide shipping is complimentary - There are no additional charges for handling & delivery. Pauline Vallayer – Moutet is best known for her feminine, soft, figurative interior genre scenes with women pursuing daily chores such as cooking, cleaning or sewing. Here, however a magnificent impressionist outdoor landscape of a haystack, reminiscent of what Claude Monet sensationally painted just a few years earlier. Inspired, but in clearly in keeping with that feminine Pauline Vallayer-Moutet ‘feel’. I don’t know who Mrs. Doisneau was but feel there might be a story to be uncovered here. Other than that Pauline Vallayer-Moutet’s work turns up regulary on the market and that her paintings command good prices, not much is known about this artiste - alas as it is often the case concerning the biographies of 19th century female artistes. This valuable and art historically relevant painting is yet in untouched 'as found' condition, with numerous little scars and soils, but no structural issues whatsoever - It will be the future owner’s privilege and responsibility to decide if the object receives some restoration or not. The dramatic gold paint plaster frame...
