Sanchez, Dictionnaire des Artistes exposant dans les Salons à Paris et en Provence, Dijon 2004, vol. II, p. 1109. Catalogue Note Probably because it is neither signed nor dated, prior to the 2007 sale (see Provenance), ithas not previously been noticed that this picture is by De Loutherbourg, and certainly not that it is the work entitled Un Calmeexhibited in the Salon of 1767 when in the Cabinet of Count Creutz, and thus the missing picture from the six De Loutherbourgs of the same dimensions exhibited as no. 124.It is therefore the pendant to the Shipwreck entitled Une Tempête in the National Museum, Stockholm.1 1 Inv. no.

Print

This signed and dated work has an old relining. The canvas is stable and well- cared for. the paint surface not showing any signs of flaking. There are some lovely fresh details to be enjoyed in the thickly-applied paint, like the foamy waves breaking on the rocks, and the scales of the caught fish. Inspection under UV light reveals some repainting upper centre, measuring about 5 by 2cm. There are small dot retouchings throughout, one repair measuring 2cm in the middle left. Some infilling of craquelure. The figures are untouched. This lot is offerd in a gilt frame, with some minor knocks, but in fine structural condition.
