Description:
Leon Felixowitsch Lagorio (Feodosia 1826–1905 St. Petersburg) Crossing the Ford, the Mountains of the Causcasus in the background, signed in Cyrillic script, oil on canvas, 72.5 x 104.5 cm, framed, (W) Provenance: Galerie Metlewicz, Vienna 1988; Austrian private collection. We are grateful to Dr. Olga Sugrobova-Roth for her assistance in cataloguing this work. Views of the Caucasus are popular subjects in the works of Leon Lagorio, an artist who travelled frequently and was captivated by the grandiosity of the natural world. The breathtaking height of the mountain peaks, floating above the clouds, forms a romantic contrast with the rider and oxcart crossing the river. Lagorio’’’’s decorative figures bring the centre of the landscape to life. His painting Fishermen in the S. D. Ersja art museum in Saransk bears a similar Lagorio signature.

Description:
Commissioned by the Empress Alexandra Fedorovna in 1857 Acquired by the grandfather of the present owners from Galerie Neupert, Zurich, in February 1935 Galerie Neupert, Zurich 2 PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION, SWITZERLAND Lev Feliksovich Lagorio 1827-1905 VIEW OF CASTEL GANDOLFO AND LAKE ALBANO signed in Cyrillic, inscribed Rim and dated 1857 l.r.; further bearing Galerie Neupert label on the reverse oil on canvas 96.5 by 127cm, 38 by 50in. Estimate 200,000 - 300,000 GBP Print Structural condition: The canvas has been lined onto a keyed wooden stretcher. This is providing an even and stable structural support. There are some old labels on the reverse of the upper horizontal stretcher-bar. Paint surface: The paint surface has a thick and glossy varnish layer. There is an extensive pattern of fine craquelure most notably within the trees and the dark pigments, and within a small area in the sky in the background of the composition. Inspection under ultra-violet light shows scattered spots and lines of inpainting within the foliage in the upper third of the composition, and some later parallel, intermittent lines of retouching within the lower part of the trees, and some retouchings in the upper right and lower right corners, and an area of fluorescence in the lower centre of the composition. It should be noted that due to the thick and opaque nature of the varnish layers it is impossible to ascertain the extent of any previous restoration work. Summary: The painting would therefore appear to be in fairly good and stable condition and would benefit from cleaning, restoration and revarnishing.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
LAGORIO, LEV (1827–1905) Ships on a Calm Sea , signed and dated 1886. Oil on canvas, 74.5 by 124.5 cm. Comment1 Provenance: Acquired in St Petersburg in the 1920s. Thence by descent. Private collection, Georgia. Anonymous Sale; Russian Art Evening , Sotheby’’’’s London, 24 November 2008, lot 9. Acquired from the above by the present owner. Private collection, UK. Authenticity of the work has been confirmed by the expert V. Petrov. Lev Lagorio was born and grew up in Feodosia, where Ivan Aivazovsky had been born ten years earlier. His aptitude for art and fondness for the Crimean landscape later led him to Aivazovsky’’’’s studio and Lagorio’’’’s lifelong predilection for depicting seascapes can with certainty be attributed to the influence of Aivazovsky. In his seascapes, Lagorio gave particular emphasis to the rendering of light, aerial perspective and various states of the sea. Lagorio’’’’s artistic trademark was his ability to imbue clear and accurate depictions of the world around him with a particular atmosphere, lending his works a romantic character. Romanticism, expressed by the peculiar play of light, and realistic, thorough manner in rendering details can be traced back to the artist’’’’s exposure to both the European and Russian artistic schools. On graduating from the Imperial Academy of Arts in St Peterburg in 1850, he travelled to the Caucasus, and then on to Italy and France. The tranquil atmosphere of his works, typical of the Italian school, became conflated with the psychological aspect of the Russian school, giving his works their particular charm. Ships on a Calm Sea , offered here for auction, originates from one of Lagorio’’’’s most prolific creative periods. It was executed in 1886 when he was enthusiastically working on an Imperial commission of a series of works dedicated to the Russo-Turkish war of 1877–1878, to be exhibited in the Military Gallery of the Winter Palace. However, the subject of this painting belongs to the post-war period. The Russian merchant ship in the centre of the composition, anchored at the entrance to the Bosphorus strait, is being offloaded by Turkish traders. This canal opened for passenger and merchant ships after the war, having earlier served as a key strategic military point. Ships on a Calm Sea is imbued with silvery light and is Romantic in mood, bearing no resemblance to Lagorio’’’’s military seascapes, with their disquieting air of foreboding. The artist’’’’s palette is restrained yet at the same time expressive and varied in tone. This work can certainly be considered as one of the most successful of Lagorio’’’’s mature period.
