|Adolphe Monticelli, French, 1824-1886. This lovely oil on panel is 14 6/8"h by 11 3/8"w in a lovely 19th C Frame (22 1/4"h by 18"w). It is signed and in good condition. A pupil of Paul Delaroche, the master who was to have the greatest influence over the young Monticelli was N. V. Diaz de la Peña, whom he met when he returned to Paris from 1855 to 1856. Monticelli’s visits to Paris exposed him to the Rococo Revival, which was being popularized by artists including Diaz, and he started producing scenes of courtly figures in garden settings à la Watteau. This became a favorite subject, and from the 1860s until the end of his career Monticelli treated numerous variations on the theme. His final sixteen years were his most productive. The vibrant colors and thick, impastic surfaces of his late works struck a responsive chord in the young Vincent Van Gogh, who collected Monticelli’s paintings and expressed his indebtedness to the older artist’s work.Museums:Atlanta, High Museum of Art; Caen, Musée des Beaux-Arts; Compiègne, musée national du château; Dijon, Musée national Magnin; London, National Gallery; Lyon, Musée des Beaux-Arts; Marseille, Musée Cantini, Musée des Beaux-Arts; New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art; Paris, Musée du Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Musée national Jean Jacques Henner; Péronne, Musée Alfred Danicourt; Rouen, Musée des Beaux-Arts; Strasbourg, Musée d’art moderne et contemporain;|
