Sir John Lavery, R.A., R.H.A., R.S.A. 1856-1941 PORTRAIT DE FEMME AU CHAPEAU signed and dedicated l.l.: To/ EGOR HESSLING/ J. Lavery oil on panel 43 by 24cm., 16¾ by 9½in. Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Or Saleroom Notice Provenance Sotheby's, London, 18 May 2001, lot 179, where purchased by the previous owner Catalogue Note Throughout his career Lavery employed models in a variety of guises. Besides posing for large literary and historical compositions in his early years, they frequently stood in for busy clients who had no time to pose for anything other than the head in a full-length portrait. In these instances, not only did they model clothes, but they also assisted the painter in arriving at an agreeable composition and colour harmony. Although no large version of the present arrangement has been found, Lavery clearly exploits the flash of bright red tunic as a foil to the overall palette of tans and khakis – a combination of hues found frequently in Whistler’’’’’’’’s work. While small sketches of this kind were a way of limbering up, they were also favoured by the discerning few for their suave spontaneity. Lavery was liberal in their disposal. Once admired, a little study would be inscribed and presented to a client even if there was no personal or family connection between the model or sitter and the recipient. In all Lavery’’’’’’’’s extensive correspondence there appears to be no references to Egon Hessling, the Paris-based author, editor and publisher, although it is probable that they met in May 1904 when Lavery was in the French capital. During the years up to and immediately after the Great War, Hessling produced illustrated folios of French furniture in the Louvre and Musée des Arts Décoratifs collections which became style guides for interior designers such as Elsie de Wolfe and Edith Wharton. Since the present sketch must date from c1900, we might propose that models such as Vera Christie or Nora Johnson be considered in the present case. However, much more likely is Idonea La Primaudaye, one of the three elegant daughters of a ship’’’’’’’’s captain who, after his naval service, skippered the St Ives lifeboat in the mid -1880s. Although Blanche and Nancy La Primaudaye also appeared in Lavery’’’’’’’’s studio between 1900 and 1905, the tall, slim Idonea, then in her mid-twenties, was his favourite model. She was, according to Brinsley Ford (in conversation with the author), ‘rather bohemian’’’’’’’’, and her family appears to have moved to Jersey before the girls’’’’’’’’ arrival in London. Her lineage may also explain why the present work with its Hessling connection, has always been known by its French title.

John Lavery - The Girl In Pink

John Lavery - The Girl In Pink

Original 1883

Price:

Lot number: 188
Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Sir John Lavery, R.H.A., R.A., R.S.A. (1856-1941) The Girl in Pink signed and dated 'J. LAVERY 83' (lower left) and signed again 'LAVERY' (on the reverse) oil on canvas 31 7/8 x 19 ¼ in. (81 x 49 cm.) Anonymous sale; Christie's, London, 17 May 2001, lot 46, where purchased by the present owner. Percy Jacomb Hood, a student at Colarossi’’’’’’’’s atelier in Paris in 1883 recalled one particular contemporary ‘who was in the habit of faking backgrounds to his costume studies and making them into pictures which were bought by some dealer in Glasgow’’’’’’’’. This was none other than John Lavery, a young painter who had worked his way to what many regarded as ‘the capital of art’’’’’’’’. With no family support, he was however, obliged to ‘fake’’’’’’’’ literary subjects – costume pieces from Goethe, Thackeray and Dickens - that could easily be sold. The present ‘Vanity Fair’’’’’’’’ figure demonstrates the increasing sophistication that, after little more than a year of consistent practice was becoming evident in his work. This particular year, 1883, would be crucial: the summer would see him at Grez-sur-Loing painting its celebrated ancient stone bridge, and year would end with the decision not to return to the ateliers, but to concentrate his energies on plein air painting instead. The present unidentified model features in a number of canvases during 1882 and 1883 as Une Jeune Parisienne (1882), in Between the Sittings (1882, both private collections), in A Conquest (1882, Glasgow Museums) and in other works. A watercolour version of the subject is known.
