Although he achieved popular acclaim very early on in his career, Edwin Longsden Long struggled to gain acceptance into the Royal Academy. The turning point in his career came in the mid-1870s, when he fell under the spell of the Middle East following a trip to Egypt and Syria in 1874. These ancient and exotic lands supplied him with a vast repertoire of new subjects, which fed his imagination and allowed him to excel in his métier. Upon his return to England, Long immersed himself in these ancient cultures, reading exhaustively on the subject and visiting the British Museum to study its extensive collections. Although the subject was new to Long, his penchant for intensive research for his paintings began much earlier in his career with his Spanish genre scenes. This combination of historical accuracy and interesting and accessible subject matter, made Long very popular with the public. Indeed, the success of the oriental, classical and biblical scenes secured his fortune and enabled him to build the magnificent studio house, designed by the Arts and Crafts architect Norman Shaw. Long\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’s greatest success came in 1875 when he exhibited The Babylonian Marriage Market at the Royal Academy. Hailed by critics and the public alike, this work finally secured the long-awaited membership as an Associate Royal Academician. In 1882, the Babylonian Marriage Market achieved further notoriety when it was sold at Christie\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’s for £6,235, and auction record for a work by a living artist and a feat which remained unsurpassed for the next decade. Painted in 1881, the year that Long finally achieved full membership in the Royal Academy, The Ionian Pottery Seller demonstrates all the elements of Long\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’s mature style. Long\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’s avid research in ancient history is evident in the costumes and jewelry that adorn the seated young woman and the various pots and vessels scattered around her.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Description: Edwin Longsden Long (British, 1829-1891), Claudius Appears Before the Senate, 1869, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, canvas: 34'h x 62.5'w, overall (with frame): 40.5"h x 68.5"w. Note: The painting is depicting Claudius (in red) approaching the Senate to ask permission to marry Agrippina the Younger (his niece). Agrippina the Younger was the mother of Nero who later succeeded Claudius to become the Emperor of the Roman Empire. Edwin Long did not create many Roman scenes, even though he studied in Rome on a trip in 1867. This painting is one of only a few historic Roman paintings created by the artist in his lifetime. The date on the painting of 1869 means it was completed 2 years after his trip to Rome.
