Hippolyte Lozenges - Lady Liberty -Fabulous 19th century French Oil painting oil painting on canvas -Signed circa 1860/70s . frame size 30x24" . canvas size 19x12" Artist Biography (1817 - 1887) Jean Raymond Hippolyte Lazerges was active/lived in France. He is known for portrait, religious paintings.Jean-Raymond Hippolyte Lazerges was born in France in 1817, making him one of the early Orientalists of the 19th Century. He was a student of David d'Angers and François Bouchot. He began exhibiting at the Salon in 1841, and his submissions were dominated by religious scenes. However his most notable accomplishments were the large number of murals and decorations he painted in churches and chapels all over France. Not much is known about Lazerges' life despite the fact that his works are found in almost every major museum in France. However, documents show that he died in Mustapha, Algeria. As the titles of his later paintings indicate, he clearly experienced life in Algeria first hand, settling there several decades after his first visit in 1830. Lazerges was captivated by his surroundings, using Algeria as a muse for his poetry, music, and paintings. The scene in the present lot shows two beautiful, languorous woman enjoying music, tea and tangerines. Lazerges has composed the scene such that his audience feels as if they are sitting in the room, listening to the sound of the tambourine and smelling the freshly peeled citrus.
