About

‘A Montenegrin Girl’ by Nathaniel Sichel (1843-1907). This large fine 19th century oil on canvas is signed by the artist and hangs in a superb quality carved and gilded Orientalist frame. The painting was one of the most commercially popular of Sichel's portraits and was frequently reproduced as a print in the final quarter of the 19th century (see images). 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. Nathaniel Sichel initially studied under Julius Schrader (1815-1900) in the academic tradition at the Royal Academy of Arts in Berlin before enrolling at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris. Sichel’s success in the 1864 Prix de Rome with a painting entitled ‘Joseph explains the Dreams of the Pharaoh’ made his reputation as a painter of Orientalist subjects. During the 1860s and 70s Nathaniel Sichel became one of the most popular portrait painters in Germany and a leading artist of the Orientalist School, making a speciality of well-drawn and elegantly painted figures. Dimensions: (framed) 74cm x 92cm (29” x 36¼”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 55cm x 73cm (21½” x 28¾”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private UK collection. Presentation: Fine quality carved and gilded Orientalist frame. Condition: Very good. Newly professionally cleaned, restored, and re-varnished. Ready to hang.
