Lot Notes
A study for one of the satyrs in a corner of the ceiling of theChambre de Diane and Endymion in the Htel de Lauzun on the IleSaint-Louis behind Notre-Dame, Paris. The house was built between1656 and 1657 for Charles Gruyn des Bordes, an army supplier, andwas decorated at no shortage of expense by Dorigny, Vouet's son inlaw. Soon after it was sold to the Duc de Lauzun, husband of theGrande Mademoiselle, King Louis XIV's cousin and the richest ladyin the kingdom. It remained in his possession for only three years.After passing through various hands, it was bought in 1842 by thebibliophile Jrme Pichon, who rented a flat to Charles Baudelaireand Thophile Gautier. .
Recent work by Barbara Brejon de Lavergne has established that thisuniquely well preserved decoration of the four rooms of the hotelwas one of Dorigny's masterpieces, B. Brejon de Lavergne,'Contributio la connaisance des dcors peints Paris et enIle-de-France au XVIIe sicle: le cas de Michel Dorigny', inBulletin de la Socit de l'Histoire de l'Art franais, 1982, pp.69-84. Among the drawings kept in the Cholmondeley album at theLouvre are few studies for the ceiling of the Chambre de Diane andEndymion such as a drawing in black chalk of three putti, oranother of two doves, B. Brejon de Lavergne, Simon Vouet,Inventaire general des dessins de l'ecole franais, Paris, 1987, n/f228 and 229, illustrated. A compositional drawing in pen and inkfor the central compartment is in the Muse d'Orleans, B. Brejon deLavergne, op. cit, p. 24, illustrated. The ceiling, althoughcomposed of several decorative compartments, is painted as acontinuous piece, an innovation imported from Italy around 1640.This scheme emphasizes the importance of the present sheet, whichshows the artist's interest in illusionistic effects. A drawing ofthe head of the satyr, formerly given to Charles Le Brun, was soldat Sotheby's London, 27 April 1977, lot 13, not illustrated.
Antoine-Joseph Dezallier d'Argenville, who owned the drawingdescribed it as follows in his Abrg de la vie des plus fameuxpeintres, 1762: 'Dans la maison du Prsident Lambert, l'appartementau deuxime tage appell les Bains, reprsente dans les angles de sonplafond les divinits de la mer et des eaux...'. The drawing wassketched by Gabriel de Saint-Aubin, in his copy of the Dezallier'ssale catalogue of 1779, now in the Dutuit collection at the PetitPalais, Paris. Revealingly, the error of attribution by theamateur, who gave the sheet to Eustache Le Sueur, underlines theevolution of Dorigny's style from the art of Vouet to a moreclassical style closer to that of LeSueur.
