Literature: This work was authenticated by Mrs. Rolande Miquel in 2007 through Christie's, and will be included in the forthcoming Diaz catalogue raisonne. Notes: The Forest of Fontainebleau, the sacred hunting grounds of French kings since the 13th century, is one of the oldest forests in France and the first nature preserve in history enacted by Napoleon III in 1861. Its austere oaks, pines, limpid pools of water, plateaus and extraordinary rock formations became the wellspring of Barbizon School artists beginning in the 1830s. Young artists seeking a sylvan escape from the bustle of Paris took to plein air painting in the Forest of Fontainebleau and the surrounding fields farmed by the peasantry of the nearby village of Barbizon. Diaz, an extraordinarily talented painter of porcelain and Romantic pastiches and odalisques, was seduced by the lighting the immense oaks commanded in Theodore Rousseau's paintings of the Forest. With his keen eye and aptitude for quick painterly studies, Diaz not only embraced Barbizon School painting, but he also became one of its preeminent proponents. His bravura in capturing diffuse lighting in palettes of gold and sienna that scintillate across the forest floors and tree trunks earned him a first-class medal at the Salon of 1848, and the award of chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1851. The painting offered here is a fine example of his Barbizon oeuvre. Lit from above in Diaz's characteristic framing technique, he creates an oculus with the tree canopies through which to illuminate the brush and boulders that recall the terrain near the height of Jean du Paris. Similar use of lighting with striking stylistic similarities are also observed in the work of Leon Richet, Diaz's pupil's painting of the Forest of Fontainebleau in lot 67.

Description:
Narcisse Virgile DIAZ de LA PENA (1807-1876) Jeune turque à l'éventail, circa 1855-1860 Huile sur panneau, signée en bas à droite, porte un numéro d'inventaire 3087 au dos 34 x 23 cm - 13 1/3 x 9 in. Oil on panel, signed on the lower right, bearing the inventory number 3087 on the back PROVENANCE Collection privée, Paris EXPERT Michel Rodrigue, 06 08 57 19 03 Avant de rejoindre l'Ecole de Barbizon et de devenir l'un de ces paysagistes français souhaitant peindre d'après nature, Narcisse Diaz de la Pena est d'abord influencé par l'école romantique. Il peint ainsi de nombreux tableaux orientalistes, fasciné par Victor Hugo et l'iconographie d'un Orient exotique, entre fantasme et réalité. Ce portrait d'une femme turque en est un parfait exemple. Assise sur un banc, interrompue dans son ouvrage et le visage incliné, elle regarde le peintre dans les yeux. La richesse et les couleurs de ses vêtements la représentent en majesté, et font d'elle le sujet sur lequel toute la lumière de la toile est concentrée. La noirceur inerte du jardin contraste avec la position de la jeune femme. Une main sur le banc, un pied avancé, elle semble prête à se lever pour inviter le spectateur à la rejoindre. Par l'évocation de ce mouvement, Diaz de La Pena ouvre à l'oeil du spectateur les portes de son imaginaire. Before joining the Barbizon School and becoming one of the French landscape painters to paint from nature, Narcisse Díaz de la Peña was first influenced by the Romantic Movement. Fascinated by Victor Hugo and the iconography of an exotic Middle East, he painted many Orientalist paintings that are part fantasy, part reality. This portrait of a Turkish woman is a perfect example of this. Interrupted in her work as she is sitting on a bench with her face bent down, she looks the painter in the eyes. Her sumptuous clothes and their colors give rise to a majestic portrayal, in which all of the composition's light focuses on her. The still darkness of the garden provides a contrast to the young woman's position. With one hand on the bench and one foot forward, she seems ready to get up to ask the viewer to join her. By rendering this movement, Narcisse Díaz de la Peña opens the doors to his imagination.
