Prosper d' Epinay FRENCH LERÊVE (THE DREAM) 1836 - 1914 signed:P d'E terracotta 46 by 96cm., 18 1/8 by 37 3/4 in. Provenance Vente d'Epinay, Hôtel Drouot, Paris, 20-21 April 1885 Exhibited Paris, Galerie Georges Petit, 1882, no. 58 Literature P. Roux Foujols, Prosper d'Épinay (1836-1914): Un mauricien à la cour des princes,Ile Maurice, 1996, pp. 104-105 Catalogue Note Le Rêve's risqué subject matter is seemingly unique in the oeuvre of Prosper d'Épinay. This is likely to be the terracotta version whichwas exhibited at Galerie Georges Petit in 1882. The model relates to another by the sculptor, shown at the Salon in 1884, which represents the courtesan Marion from Alfred de Musset's poem, Rolla; its terracotta versionwas sold in these rooms on 23 November 2010 (lot 81).Le Rêveis even more overtly inspired by Henri Gervex's scandalous painting Rolla than d'Épinay's version of the same subject. Depictingthe courtesan asleep on a bed in a suggestive pose, the painting was excluded from the Salon of 1878 on the grounds that it was 'immoral'. While Le Rêve replicatesthe pose of the woman in Gervex's painting, d'Épinay enhances its eroticism with his model's gesture, which is tantalisingly concealed by her bent leg. It is hardly surprising that, rather than at the Salon, Le Rêvewas shown at the alternative, and perhaps more progressive, exhibition space of Georges Petit.

BUST OF HADRIAN DE BOSMELET AS THE INFANT EMPEROR HADRIAN

signed: d'Epinay. and inscribed: HADRIANVS IMPERATOR

polychromed terracotta, on a wood base

terracotta: 34.5cm., 13½in.

base: 7.5cm., 3in.

Provenance
Sotheby's London, 9 April 2003, lot 96
Catalogue Note
This charming little portrait depicts Hadrian de Bosmelet, the son of Baronne Diane de Bosmelet. Hadrian and his mother both sat for d'Epinay between 1887 and 1888. D'Epinay enlivened the normally routine job of aristocratic portraiture by giving his sitters historical persona. Here, in a charming pun, he represents the young Hadrian as the eponymous Roman Emperor.
