Galerie Mathivet

Claude Lalanne (Paris 1925-2019 Fontainebleau) Pomme d'Or, 1970 18k yellow gold H 10.5 cm Monogrammed CL, numbered 3/5, guarantee hallmark Provenance: André Mourgues; Alexandre Iolas collection (Alexandre Iolas, a dealer who was a great supporter of the Surrealists and the New Realists) Claude Lalanne's world is poetic. She moulds bodies, leaves, apples and cabbages, then combines them. Her creations include L'Homme à tête de chou, La Pommebouche and L'Escargot doigt. These pieces are dreamlike, reminiscent of the Baroque world. Yves Saint Laurent, one of her most loyal customers, said: "What moves me about her is that she has managed to combine craftsmanship and poetry in the same exacting way. Her beautiful sculptor's hands seem to push aside the mists of mystery to reach the shores of art". This 'pomme bouche' could also be reminiscent of the world of Magritte...

Artimo Fine Arts

jean de bay

Jean Baptiste Joseph De Bay (Nantes 1802-1862 Paris) Le Génie de la Marine, 1832 White Carrara marble, finely carved H 101 x W 48 x D 85 cm Signature engraved on the boat's anchor: JEAN DEBAY Executed in Rome in 1832 Provenance: 1832, Rome; 1832 (June, Paris, Exposition at Petits-Augustins; 1833, Paris, Exposition at Salon de Paris; 1833, Mr. Hoppe Collection, Amsterdam; 1833-2010, private collection Literature: S. Lami (1916). Dictionnaire des sculpteurs de l'école française au dix-neuvième siècle, Paris, Librairie Ancienne Honoré Champion Edouard Champion, tome 2, pp. 126-132; A. Lenormand (1981), La Tradition classique et l’Esprit romantique. Les Sculpteurs de l’Académie de France à Rome de 1824 à 1840, Rome, Edizioni dell'Elefante, 1981 Exhibitions: 1832, Rome; 1832 (June), Paris, Exposition at the Petits-Augustins; 1833, Paris, Exposition at the Salon de Paris This masterful work entitled 'Le Génie de la Marine' is the work of the talented French sculptor Jean Baptiste Joseph De Bay. An emblem of marine allegory, the sculpture depicts a daring Cupid, bravely sailing against the currents on a delicate shell-shaped craft. In a posture of determination, Cupid steers his boat with an oar while seated on a folded sail, which envelops an ink at his feet. This representation of the Cupid's determination to follow his own course and speed without wishing to stop may allude to the persistence of love against all odds. Designed in Rome in 1832, this exquisite marble sculpture was later exhibited, albeit unfinished, at the Petits-Augustins in Paris. It was finally presented in all its splendour at the Paris Salon the following year, where it attracted the attention of the famous Amsterdam banker, Monsieur Hoppe. Jean Baptiste Joseph De Bay, better known as Jean De Bay, was born in Nantes on 31 August 1802. The son of a renowned sculptor and a pupil of Baron Bosio, De Bay quickly established himself as an emblematic figure of nineteenth-century French sculpture. After training at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1820, where he won numerous awards including the prestigious Prix de Rome, the sculptor succeeded in establishing himself in the art of bas relief and ronde bosse. Equally at ease working in marble and bronze, Jean De Bay contributed to numerous national projects, notably for the Louvre Palace and the Hôtel de Ville in Paris. Several of his works are also preserved at the Musée de Versailles. Many of his works can be found in various French museums, testifying to his artistic genius. This great sculptor died a few years later at his home in Paris on 7 January 1862.

Galerie Van den Bruinhorst

Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (Utrecht, 1888-1964) Original ‘Red Blue chair’ Designed in 1919/1923 Executed by G.A. van de Groenekan, circa 1970, De Bilt, The Netherlands Frame; solid beech wood slats with beech wood dowels, stained dark brown/black, the ends finished with chromate yellow paint. Seat; plywood, finished monochrome with ultramarine blue paint. Back: plywood finished monochrome with vermilion red paint H 86 x W 65.9 x D 82.5 cm The chair is marked with the paper label of Rietveld’s regular cabinet maker, Gerard van de Groenekan Provenance: from the first owner Architect Ruud Wilmink from Amsterdam. At the end of his architecture studies, he personally ordered the chair from Gerard van de Groenekan in De Bilt around 1970 for the furnishing of his first home In 1919, architect Gerrit Rietveld joined the legendary ‘De Stijl’ group, an esthetic movement founded by Dutch artists and architects two years earlier. Inspired by the work of his fellow ‘De Stijl’ member Bart van der Leck, Rietveld started experimenting with the use of primary colors in the designs for furniture around 1921-1922. Probably about 1923 – a hundred years ago! – he made the first copy of his wooden-slat easy-chair using Red Yellow and Blue, the color scheme that would bring the chair its world fame as an icon of De Stijl movement.

francisco de zurbarán

Francisco de Zurbarán (Fuente de Cantos, Badajoz 1598-1664 Madrid) Still Life of Lent Oil on canvas 62.5 x 82.5 cm Provenance: private collection, Madrid, Spain; collection of Cardinal Despuig (1745-1813), Palacio de Montenegro, Palma de Mallorca [inv. n° 71]; Truyols collection (from 1972), Palma de Mallorca Francisco de Zurbarán, one of the foremost figures of the Spanish Baroque is renowned for his masterful works. Among them, 'Still Life of Lent' stands as a testament to his artistic genius. In this intriguing composition, Zurbarán skillfully brings to life a multitude of objects emerging from the shadows of an enigmatic, undefined background- captivating the viewer in the interplay of light. This masterpiece, dating back to the 1600s, has a fascinating history. It was once part of the esteemed collection of Antonio Despuig Dameto (1745-1813), the son of the Count and Countess of Montenegro y Montoro. During the tumultuous era of Napoleon's annexation of the Pontifical States to the French Empire, Despuig faced arrest and was transported to Paris, leaving behind this remarkable artwork. Astonishingly, 'Still Life of Lent' remained within the Despuig family's collection throughout the centuries. Through intensive scientific examination, Zurbarán's hidden signature beneath layers of the canvas has been uncovered, offering us a unique glimpse into Zurbarán's mastery and the rich historical tapestry that surrounds it.
