"Coyly looking down, Madame Recamier holds a veil across her chest. The sheath both demurely conceals and reveals her breasts. Sculptor Joseph Chinard cleverly compensated for the artificiality of the bust form by el...

From our European Collection, a beautifully painted 19th century original oil on board entitled "Portrait of a Lady, Full Length in a Black Dress, Standing in an Interior," by Austrian master Edouard Ender (1822-1883).

Ender's body of work is not especially large, with about 60 extant works known and documented. Though criticized by some in his day, he is now very highly-regarded within the 19th century portraitist and realism genre, and many of his pieces rival the genius in executio...

Classified by art historians as a "genre painter," one could almost conclude from looking over the body of his works from "Treat for the Children," to "A Secret for Grandma," to "The Berry Collectors," to "Mo...
