Description:
Francois Brunery (Italian, 1849-1926) An Eminent Gathering signed 'F. Brunery' (lower left) oil on panel 27¾ x 36 in. (70.5 x 91.4 cm.) with Richard Green, London. Acquired from the above by the present owner in 1987. PROPERTY FROM A MIDWESTERN COLLECTION François Brunery was born in Turin but received his artistic education in Paris, where he studied with Jean Léon Gérôme and Léon Bonnat. From Paris he traveled to Rome, where he first came in to contact with the luxury and splendor of the Vatican. The young artist married in Rome, and left the Eternal City upon the urging of his new wife. Upon his return to Paris, he painted the Venetian canal scenes that were so popular at the time, but his first real commission was a portrait of a cardinal. This, combined with his time spent in Rome, may have inspired the young Brunery's artistic endeavors and there followed a highly successful series of ecclesiastical genre scenes which started as mere curiosities and later developed their comedic bent. By the 1890s, Brunery had developed a reputation as one of the leading artists dedicated to the genre of satirical and humorous depictions of the clergy set in luxurious interiors. Because of the burgeoning of the middle class both in Europe and the United States, as well as a lessening of regard for the Church, these types of paintings were exceedingly popular at the very end of the 19th century. These ecclesiastical paintings, as exemplified by An Eminent Gathering, are characterized by their highly finished technique, vivid purples and crimsons, and a wealth of lavish details. Most importantly, the pointed humor proved to be of enormous appeal to both European and American audiences. A number of European artists, among them Andrea Landini, Jean Georges Vibert, José Gallegos y Arnosa, Juan Pablo Salinas and Georges Croegeart who dedicated at least a portion of their oeuvre to this genre. A large part of Brunery's success in the genre was that he was a master of innuendo rather than explicit slander. 'Brunery's merry company of prelates at the dinner table is jolly rather than legless, funny rather than disgusting' (P. Hook and M. Poltimore, Popular 19th Century Painting, 1986, p. 99). An Eminent Gathering embodies all that appealed most commercially to collectors of this genre at the end of the 19th century. The composition is complex and populated by clergy of various degree, the scene is set in a high-ceiling, wood-paneled, sumptuously furnished interior where good humor abounds. The gathering is obviously enormously entertained by the anecdote told by the figure at the far right as the card party has been interrupted by an overwhelming burst of laughter. The bonhomie that pervades the gathering softens the underlying satire and creates an atmosphere appealing in its levity and sensually satisfying in its sumptuousness.
