Rare Pair of Paintings "Hunting with a Hawk"


Charming pair of medieval-inspired paintings representing a noble lady and her page preparing themselves for the hunt. The originality of the technique used, painting on silver leaves applied on leather, gives a particular brightness to the colors and makes them stand out more intensely. Without frame: Height 190 cm (74.8 in.), width 52 cm (20,4 in.) With frame: Height 226 cm (88.9 in.), width 86.5 cm (34 in.) Troubadour style The term “troubadour” was used circa 1880 to describe paintings of the early nineteenth century illustrating a mythical Middle Ages and Renaissance, closer to fairy tales than to historical reality. The first painting that we could retrospectively qualify as troubadour is presented at the Salon of 1802, under the Consulate: Valentine de Milan pleurant la mort de son époux, by Fleury-Richard (student of David). This painting was a great success because of its moving and unprecedented theme, borrowed from the medieval past and the precision of its representation : it figured a Gothic scene, but that was believed at the time realistic, and quasi-documentary. Then, by extension, this term was attributed to various works (sculptures, furniture, objects, tapestries…), the common point being the taste for the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Technically, the troubadour painting is inspired in some way by Dutch painting of the 17th century, but it fits in the tradition of the neo-Gothic English style. Its public success is obvious, but it ends with the revolution of 1848. Many artists have embraced this style, such as Fleury François Richard, Pierre Révoil, Alexandre-Evariste Fragonard ou Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.
