Fine Art by Fantin-Latour, British Impressionist Painters Available at NY ElizabethOct 30, 2022 12:00 EDT
Henri-Théodore Fantin-Latour made a name for himself in 19th-century England for his flower still lifes. He worked in a soft, Impressionistic style that drew lessons from the Old Master paintings hanging in the Louvre. An oil on canvas painting by Fantin-Latour depicting the Greek transformation myth of Daphne and Apollo will soon come to auction with NY Elizabeth. Using dark shades and tight brushstrokes, Fantin-Latour depicted a brief moment of contact before Daphne transformed into a laurel tree at the river’s edge.
This sale showcases fine examples of British fine art from across the centuries. Styles represented in the catalog range from Impressionism and Classicism to stern portraits and sweeping landscapes. Collectors interested in religious art can consider a 17th-century Dutch painting showing the marriage of the Virgin Mary. Its style closely resembles the workshop of Peter Paul Rubens. Joseph stands in the center of the frame, accompanied by a white-clad Mary, while cherubs toss down flowers from above. Additional lots of note include a 19th-century portrait of Irishman Henry Gordon Evans by Frederick, Lord Leighton, a Russian Impressionist twilight scene by Alexandr Moravov, and a circular portrait of two young girls by English painter Frank Salisbury.
