Lot Notes
Le Barbier\’\’\’\’s The Creation of Eve was exhibited at the Salon of 1801, where it was the final painting on display. The corresponding brochure contained the following commentary, penned either by the artist himself or at the very least derived from his suggestions: \“214: Le premier home et la première femme, par Le Barier l\’\’\’\’aîné. L \‘on suppose le premier home à son réveil, couché à côté d\’\’\’\’un Buisson de roses qui se metamorphose en une creature qui fix ses regards et excite son admiration. La première femme, enfin, nait de la reine des fleurs. Elle palpe une rose qui ne lui répond qu\’\’\’\’en exhalant ses parfums. Elle touche son cœure, et l\’\’\’\’amour en l\’\’\’\’ animant d\’\’\’\’une flame celeste, lui fait sentir que ses battements sont l\’\’\’\’effet du premier sentiment de l\’\’\’\’objet qu\’\’\’\’elle contemple et qui doit faire son bonheur : un lion qui lui lèche les pieds est l\’\’\’\’emblème de la force soumise à la beauté." ["214: The first man and the first woman. One imagines the first man at his awakening, lying next to a bush of roses, which metamorphoses into a creature that fixes his gaze and excites his admiration. The first woman is finally born to the queen of flowers. She squeezes a rose that responds to her only by exuding its perfumes. She touches her heart, and Love, by animating her with a celestial flame, makes her feel that its beats are the effect of the main sentiment of the object that contemplates her and that must make her happiness. The lion that licks her feet is the emblem of strength submitting to beauty.\”]. This narrative, related to a passage from Milton\’\’\’\’s Paradise Lost of which Le Barbier owned a copy, provides insight into the unusual iconography of our painting and further highlights its poetic dimension. Elegantly proportioned and grouped together in a satisfying triangular arrangement, the figures evoke the ideals of the Renaissance and speak to Le Barbier\’\’\’\’s aspirations of resurrecting in his day the glory of past artistic traditions. The artist worked out his composition in a sketch of the same title that was shown at the Salon of 1798 but of which the present whereabouts are unknown.
