Description:
Frederic, Lord Leighton, P.R.A., R.W.S. (1830-1896) The Sluggard signed 'Fred Leighton', inscribed 'FOUNDED BY J W SINGER & SONS./FROME SOMERSET', 'PUBLISHED BY ARTHUR LESLIE COLLIE/39B OLD BOND STREET LONDON/MAY 1ST 1890' and with title to the front bronze, mid-green patina 20 ¾ in. (52.5 cm.) high PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE BELGIAN COLLECTION The Sluggard was drawn from the Italian model Giuseppe Valona: ‘Giuseppe Valona, the model, a man of fine proportions, weary one day of posing in the studio, threw himself back, stretched out his arms and gave a great yawn. Leighton saw the whole performance and fixed it roughly in clay straight off.’’’’’’’’ (E. Staley, Lord Leighton of Stretton, London, 1906, p. 131). The first study for The Sluggard was modelled in 1882 but Leighton continued to work on the subject for several years before exhibiting a life-size bronze version at the Royal Academy in 1886 (now at Tate Britain); for which he was also awarded a medal of honour when it was shown at the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle. This bronze statuette of The Sluggard was produced circa 1890-1900 by Arthur Leslie Collie from the clay sketch-model by Leighton, which he executed for the life-size bronze shown at the Royal Academy in 1886. As was the custom, the popularity of The Sluggard, made it viable for a foundry to acquire the rights to produce the model under licence. The Sluggard was produced in an edition, originally published by Arthur L. Collie in 1890, cast in the Singer Foundry in Frome, Somerset. The present bronze is from the earliest edition. The copyright passed from Collie to J.W. Singer & Sons sometime in the early decades of the 20th Century; it appears in the Singer trade literature around 1914.

Description:
Frederic, Lord Leighton 1830-1896 BRITISH THE SLUGGARD signed: Fred LEighton , and entitled: THE SLUGGARD bronze, mid-brown patina 52cm., 20½in. The Sluggard is one of the defining sculptures of the 19th-century, and one of the few sculptural works created by Lord Leighton, the father of the New Sculpture movement. Balancing idealism with realism, this perfect depiction of the male nude was published initially by Arthur L. Collie and cast by the Singer Foundry until the early 20th century, when the rights passed solely to the Singer Foundry (by 1914). The original clay sketch was first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1886, and a lifesize bronze version in the Tate collections (inv. no. N01752).

Description:
Frederic, Lord Leighton, P.R.A. 1830-1896 STUDY FOR SOLITUDE pencil and white chalk on brown paper 43 by 23cm., 17 by 9in. Provenance Julian Hartnoll, London, c.1985; Morris Gallery, Toronto Catalogue Note The oil painting Solitude (Maryhill Museum of Art, Washington) was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1890. It almost certainly depicts Leighton's favourite model Dorothy Dene, seated amongst an imposing background of rocks and looking down into murky waters as she reflects on her solitariness. There is a similar study at the Yale Centre for British Art in New Haven and other studies for Solitude at the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, the Royal Library at Windsor, Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle and in the collection of drawings at the Royal Academy.
