Description:
French Rococo Pastel Signed Francois Boucher Pastel on canvas, gilt frame. Portrait of a girl. School of Francois Boucher (French, 1703-1770). 18.1 x 15 in. (46 x 38 cm). François Boucher was a French painter known as a master of the Rococo style. His delicate paintings of pastoral and boudoir scenes meld naturalism with lighthearted fantasy. Referring to his interest in staging compositions in a theatrical manner, he once quipped, \“Nature is too green and badly lit.\” Born on September 29, 1703 in Paris, France, he apprenticed under artist François Lemoyne and went on to win the Grand Prix de Rome in 1720. The artist cited Peter Paul Rubens and Antoine Watteau as major influences in his development. After establishing himself with important commissions for the royal court at Versailles, he became a member of the Royal Academy and was later appointed director. In 1765, Boucher was awarded the title Premier Peintre du Roi (First Painter of the King) under Louis XV. During his time at court, he produced one of his most famous works, a portrait of the King\’s mistress, Madame de Pompadour (1756). The artist died on May 30, 1770 in Paris, France. Boucher\’s works are presently held in the collections of the Louvre in Paris, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Neue Pinakothek in Munich, among others. PROVENANCE: Private American collection (Chicago, IL)
Francois Boucher - Paysage Avec Une Passerelle

Lot number: 132
Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
FRANÇOIS BOUCHER (after Watteau) Paysage avec une passerelle. Etching, 1726-28. 243x324 mm; 9 5/8x12 3/4 inches, narrow to small margins. From L'Oeuvre d'Antoine Watteau . . . Figures et Differents Caractères. A very good impression of this scarce etching. According to Carlson, "One of the most lavish tributes paid to Watteau's (1684-1721) memory was the publication of Jean de Jullienne's L'Oeuvre d'Antoine Watteau, which was printed in Paris in four volumes between 1726 and 1735 . . . Because some etchings are unsigned, the precise extent of Boucher's collaboration is variously estimated at between 106 and 119 plates, all published between 1726 and 1728 in the two volumes of the recueil given over to prints after Watteau's drawings, which are subtitled Figures et Differents Caractères, (Carlson/Ittmann, Regency to Empire, French Printmaking 1715-1814, Minneapolis, 1984, page 74). This was Boucher's (1703-1770) first significant commission as a young artist and a fitting tribute to his mentor. Baudicour 135.

A YOUNG WOMAN LYING ON HER FRONT François Boucher PARIS 1703 - 1770 Black and white chalk, on blue paper 306 by 422 mm Provenance Samuel Jones Loyd, later 1st Baron Overstone (1796-1883), thence by inheritance to his son-in-law, Brigadier-General Robert Loyd-Lindsay, 1st Baron Wantage, VC, KCB, VD (1832-1901), Lockinge, Oxfordshire, thence by descent to the present owner Exhibited London, Burlington Fine Arts Club, Pictures, Drawings, Furniture and Objets d'Art, 1924-5, no. 205; King's Lynn, Fermoy Art Gallery, French Drawings of the 17th and 18th Century, 1985, no. 5 Literature G. Redford, Descriptive Catalogue of works of Art at Overstone Park, Lockinge House and Carlton Gardens, 1878, no. 139 (as "style of Boucher"); Guide to the Pictures at Lockinge House (A.T. Loyd's Collection), 1928, p. 30; The Loyd Collection of Paintings and Drawings at Betterton House, Lockinge near Wantage, Berkshire, London 1967, p. 49, no. 68, fig. 68, reproduced; F. Russell,The Loyd Collection of Paintings, Drawings and Sculptures, 1991, p. 31, no. 68, fig. 52, reproduced Catalogue Note Executed with the freedom and gusto that made Boucher the preeminent force in French art during the 18th century, and his drawings so keenly sought after by collectors from his lifetime through to the present day, this fine sheet, drawn in a combination of black and white chalk, on blue paper, is a captivating and highly characteristic example of the Frenchman\’s work as a draughtsman. Here the artist has depicted a full length female figure, lying on her front, her left arm outstretched. While the pose is highly reminiscent of some of Boucher\’s most iconic drawings from earlier in his career, such as Study of a young girl lying on her front,1 which relates to Boucher\’s erotically charged L\’Odalisque,2the voluminous silk dress, heaped around the body of his model in the present work, adds a degree of restraint that is so clearly absent in these other two nudes. Though previously linked on stylistic grounds to two drawings,3 both of which are connected with Boucher\’s painting La Pipée aux Oiseaux,4 Alastair Laing, who has recently reexamined the drawing in the original and reaffirmed the attribution to Boucher, has proposed a revised dating of circa 1760-65. Though no connection to any other painting by the artist has so far been identified, Laing believes that the Loyd drawing was probably done for, or derived from, one of the main figuresin a pastoral scene, or possibly a landscape. 1.See sale, London, Sotheby\’s, 5 July 2000, lot 57 (£223,500) 2.
