Description:
Sale 1802 Lot 100 Leon Francois Comerre (French, 1850-1916) "Harem Dancer" oil on canvas signed lower left, "Whitford and Hughes, Fine Paintings 1880-1930, London" and typewritten label with artist and title en verso. Presented in a giltwood frame. 32-1/4" x 16-1/4", framed 43" x 26-1/2" Provenance: Sotheby's, London, June 13, 2006, lot 234 Notes: Europeans were fascinated with the exoticism of the "Orient", with the fine porcelain, silk, textiles and spices that flooded ports due to the expansion of trade in the East in the late 17th/early 18th century through the Swedish East India Companies. Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa became synonymous with the Orient following Napoleon's failed campaigns in Egypt and Syria, which fueled public interest in Egyptology that found ubiquitous expression in the French Empire-style- whereby fine and decorative arts prominently featured sphinxes, winged animals, paw feet, and hieroglyphic and geometric patterns. French colonization of Algeria and Tunisia in 1830 and 1881 respectively further aggrandized the misnomer. By the second half of the 19th century, the Orient symbolized all that was not Western European and Christian; it was a collective other that dazzled and afforded a fantastic reprieve from the mores and strictures of the West. Turkish, Indian and Maghrebian rugs were all "Oriental" ones found in sun drenched bazaars in Tangiers and Istanbul that French painters like Kauffman and Gabani frequented, painting embellished depictions for wealthy European patrons such as the "Snake Charmer" in lot 105, and the colorful tapestry rug-laden market in lot 106. The exotic fauna, spices and textiles were revered as vibrant and wild as the forbidden domestic interiors of the Ottoman Empire sultans, namely the women's quarters (seraglios). Harems were highly eroticized by Western men as they erroneously viewed them as personal brothels for the affluent. Romantic painters, notably Gerome, Delacroix and Ingres pictorially invented the harem pastiche of the Odalisque- Turkish slaves or concubines portrayed as belly dancers or as recumbent nudes in lush interiors that often include other women bathing or in intimate embraces. Aureli 's "Courtesans in Waiting" and Ballesio's "Royal Patron" in lots 102 and 103 exemplify this archetype, as does the painting offered here by Comerre of the "Harem Dancer", and Semenousky's "Water Carrier" in the following lot. The latter two present sultry odalisques/belly dancers draped in golden gauze with elaborate sequined accoutrements; the first is posed before a relief of Moorish architecture bedecked in "Oriental" guilloche; and the second portrays a Western Greek or Italian peasant presented as an odalisque.

Lot number: 37
Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Léon-François Comerre (French, 1850-1916) Une étoile signed and dated 'Leon Comerre/1882' (lower right) oil on canvas 70 7/8 x 51 ¼ in. (180 x 130.2 cm.) A great success when it debuted at the Salon of 1882, Léon Comerre\’s Une étoile is among the artist\’s most important works. Though best known for his Orientalist subjects, Comerre also worked as a society portraitist, and in the years around 1882 undertook a series of paintings of ballerinas in similar settings – either standing or seated in front of a white, tromp l\’oeil backdrop and on a white carpet, a bouquet of flowers in their hands or at their feet. Of these, Une étoile is the largest and most completely resolved composition. Reviews of the 1882 Salon referred to the picture as \‘remarkable\’ and a \‘symphony in white\’ and the work was engraved following the Salon, bringing Une étoile even broader popularity and acclaim. Comerre\’s daughter, when writing the catalogue of her father\’s work, considered the work of such importance within his oeuvre that she illustrated it on the catalogue\’s cover. For such a well-regarded picture, its history has not been well-documented. Comerre\’s daughter remarks only that it was sold to an American client via a Parisian dealer following the Salon, making it possible that this work is the same \‘Etoile de la Danse\’ sold through M. Knoedler & Co. to the Philadelphia dealer and collector Charles Field Haseltine in 1883. By at least 1940 the work had made its way to the West Coast, and was donated to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in that year by the widow of Willis G. Hunt, the American paper magnate. LACMA deaccessioned the work in 1973.
