Lot number: 101
Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Frederic, Lord Leighton, P.R.A., R.W.S. (1830-1896) The Sluggard signed 'Fred Leighton', inscribed 'FOUNDED BY J W SINGER & SONS./FROME SOMERSET', 'PUBLISHED BY ARTHUR LESLIE COLLIE/39B OLD BOND STREET LONDON/MAY 1ST 1890' and with title to the front bronze, mid-green patina 20 ¾ in. (52.5 cm.) high PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE BELGIAN COLLECTION The Sluggard was drawn from the Italian model Giuseppe Valona: ‘Giuseppe Valona, the model, a man of fine proportions, weary one day of posing in the studio, threw himself back, stretched out his arms and gave a great yawn. Leighton saw the whole performance and fixed it roughly in clay straight off.’’’’’’’’ (E. Staley, Lord Leighton of Stretton, London, 1906, p. 131). The first study for The Sluggard was modelled in 1882 but Leighton continued to work on the subject for several years before exhibiting a life-size bronze version at the Royal Academy in 1886 (now at Tate Britain); for which he was also awarded a medal of honour when it was shown at the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle. This bronze statuette of The Sluggard was produced circa 1890-1900 by Arthur Leslie Collie from the clay sketch-model by Leighton, which he executed for the life-size bronze shown at the Royal Academy in 1886. As was the custom, the popularity of The Sluggard, made it viable for a foundry to acquire the rights to produce the model under licence. The Sluggard was produced in an edition, originally published by Arthur L. Collie in 1890, cast in the Singer Foundry in Frome, Somerset. The present bronze is from the earliest edition. The copyright passed from Collie to J.W. Singer & Sons sometime in the early decades of the 20th Century; it appears in the Singer trade literature around 1914.
