Hellenistic Tanagra Figure: Circa 1st -3rd Century BC. This stunning example of Antique Greek is fired terra cotta 4.5" H . Condition: some normal weathering,good condition. From a private collection, guaranteed authenticity. Tanagra figures had not been much noted before the end of the 1860s, when ploughmen of Vratsi in Boeotia, Greece, began to uncover tombs ranging in date over many centuries. The main finds especially from the 4th and 3rd centuries BCE were secured in 1874. Inside and outside the tombs of the Hellenistic period — 3rd to 1st centuries BCE — were many small terracotta figures. Great quantities that were found in excavation sites at Tanagra identified the city as the source of these figures, which were also exported to distant markets. In addition, such figures were made in many other Mediterranean sites, including Alexandria, Tarentum in Magna Graecia, Centuripe in Sicily and Myrina in Mysia.

FANTIN, LATOUR, HENRI (1836-1904 French) Portrait of woman, framed pastel/conte crayon mounted to cardboard, signed lower right, approximate image size 9 3/4" x 8 1/4"a couple sm,all foxing marks, mat has even age toning, pastel itself seems to be in good condition, just a couple minor smudges. At the age of ten, Henri Fantin-Latour began painting with his father, Théodore Fantin-Latour (1805-1875). In 1850, he left Grenoble and moved to Paris to study Encouraged by the renowned J.A.M. Whistler, whom he met in 1858 at the Louvre, Fantin-Latour made several trips to London from 1859 to 1881, where he exhibited at the Royal Academy. London collectors appreciated his still lifes, and he began accepting numerous portrait commissions from English patrons. In an effort to become better known in France, Fantin-Latour also exhibited with his friend Edouard Manet and future impressionists Jean Renoir and Claude Monet. Unlike the realists and the impressionists, Fantin did not paint out of doors, as he preferred literary subjects, still lifes, and portraits that could be painted in his studio. In addition to portraits and still lifes, he made numerous paintings, and more than 150 prints that were fantasy works and dream visions, paving the way for symbolist artists. These works were inspired by allegorical and mythological subjects as well as motivated by contemporary Romantic German composers such as Schumann, Berlioz, and Wagner. In November 1901, Fantin-Latour wrote: “Never again flowers or portraits. I amuse myself painting whatever comes to mind.” The present picture, which has been dated to 1902, is an example of the late imaginative works that the artist—freed from the necessity of painting portraits or commercial still-lifes—made at the end of his career. They were distinctive for their loose, spontaneous execution and delicate harmonies of color, in addition to their fantastical subject matter.

POR 

Robert Delaunay was born in Paris in 1885, a few years after Braque and Picasso to 1941 Montpelier. This stunning watercolor on paper is of the Eiffel Tower, 37cm by 25.8cm (14.6" by 10.2") signed LL. He was a big blond bright-eyed man, the son of a well-off engineer and so he was not afflicted by the poverty that befell most of his fellow artists. After training as a decorative commercial painter he took up an artistic career in 1904. About 1906 he became interested in Neo-Impressionism and the color theories of Eugene Cheuvrel and embarked upon the research into the aesthetic applications of color which remained the central motive throughout his artistic life. He gave all of his time to painting. Delaunay was lucky in his marriage, too. He met Russian-born Sonia Terk in 1909 and they were married in 1910. She was also a gifted artist and they worked out an unusually harmonious balance between their talents. They started talking art as soon as they woke up. In his worse moments, Delaunay was a crashing bore, capable of empying a room with his theoretical diatribes. It was said that he was, to the last, an only child. Delaunay belonged to no movement. His rainbow-hued paintings shared very little with cubism. He painted the Eiffel Tower over and over again. He made a series of compositions based on brightly banded circles, one of which ""The First Disc"" painted in 1912, is almost certainly the first abstract picture painted in France by a Frenchman. He associated with members of the cubist movement and exhibited with them at the Salon des Independants; also the Blaue Reiter group in Germany. Franz Marc, August Macke and Paul Klee in particular were influenced by his color. The 1914 war caught the Delaunays unaware; they were in Portugal and they stayed there and in Spain until 1920. In so doing, he missed the horrors of the front. Portugese police who saw him painting enormous disks on vast expanses of canvas at his seaside villa near Lisbon suspected him of drawing signals for German submarines. They found that Delaunay's circles were meaningless. For some reason his painting, after he got back to Paris, was never quite to regain the life-affirming energy of his prewar work. From then on his wife became the stronger half of the creative partnership. He died of cancer in 1941 in exile in Montpelier.

Serge Poliakoff was a Russian-born French modernist painter belonging to the 'New' Ecole de Paris (Tachisme). Serge Poliakoff was born in Moscow in 1906 -1969 in Paris. This stunning gouache is 39cm by 29cm (15.4" by 11.4"), signed LR Serge Poliakoff. He enrolled at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, but fled Russia and the Russian Revolution in 1917. He arrived in Constantinople in 1920, living off the profits from his talent as a guitarist. He went on to pass through Sofia, Belgrade, Vienna, and Berlin before settling in Paris in 1923, all the while continuing to play in Russian cabarets. In 1929 he enrolled at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière*. His paintings remained purely academic until he discovered, during his stay in London from 1935 to 1937, the abstract art and luminous* colours of the Egyptian sarcophagi. It was a little afterwards that he met Wassily Kandinsky, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, and Otto Freundlich. With these influences, Poliakoff quickly came to be considered as one of the most powerful painters of his generation. In 1947, he was trained by Jean Deyrolle in Gordes in the Vaucluse region of France amongst peers such as Gérard Schneider, Giloli, Victor Vasarely, and Jean Dewasne. By the beginning of the 1950s, he was still staying at the Old Dovecote hotel near Saint-Germain-des-Prés, which was also home to Louis Nallard and Maria Manton, and continuing to earn a reliable income by playing the balalaika. A contract enabled him to quickly gain better financial stability. In 1962 a room was given over to his paintings by the Venice Biennial*, and Poliakoff became a French citizen in the same year. His works are now displayed in a large number of museums in Europe and New York. Poliakoff also worked with ceramics at the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres. He influenced the paintings of Arman. In 2006, works by Poliakoff were chosen by the Musée du Luxembourg for their exhibition entitled 'L'Envolée lyrique(lit:'lyric Flight'), Paris 1945-1956', namely 'Composition en brun', 1947, Ny Carlsberg Glypothek, Copenhagen; 'Composition rouge avec trait', 1952, Cologne Museum; 'Composition IV', 1954)
