Description:
José Vital Branco Malhoa (Portuguese, 1855-1933) The resting woodcutter signed and dated 'Jose Malhoa/1923' (lower right) oil on canvas, unframed 16 x 23¾ in. (40.5 x 60.5 cm.)
Anonymous Sale; Sotheby's, London, 2 June 2010, lot 193. This was a wedding gift to the previous owner in 1968. Acquired from the above by the present owner in 1989.
Malhoa was at the forefront of the Portuguese Naturalist painting movement in the latter half of the 19th century. He often painted scenes from daily life, exemplified here in this painting of a woodcutter taking a rest at the edge of the forest. Malhoa always remained faithful to the Naturalist style, but in some of his works there are Impressionist influences.
He saw at the end of his life, the inauguration of the José Malhoa Museum, in Caldas da Rainha.

CATALOGUE NOTE
As exemplified by the present work, beyond his picturesque ruralscenes, Malhoa often concentrated on the theme of the isolation oflife in the countryside, focusing on one or two figures in theforest or fields. The death of his wife imbued his laternaturalistic peasant scenes and spontaneous brushwork with a subtlemelancholy.Malhoa attended the Academia de Belas-Artes in Lisbon where hestudied under Tomás José da Anunciação and Miguel ngelo Lupi.While exposed to the Barbizon-influenced style of António SilvaPorto, his compatriot in the Grupo do Leão (1881–9) as well as thework of Bastien-Lepage, Malhoa developed his own Naturalist style.Together with Columbano Bordalo Pinheiro he was the leadingproponent of Naturalist painting in Portugal in the late nineteenthcentury, and paved the way for the evolution of Portuguesemodernism.

Sra. Celina Guinle de Paula Machado (1959) Thence by descent Purchased by the present owner circa 2000 from the above

EXHIBITED
Rio de Janeiro, Museu Nacional de Belas Artes, José Malhoa - Retrospectiva, 1959, no. 9, illustrated in the catalogue

CATALOGUE NOTE
A master in the depiction of scenes from Portuguese rural communities, the present work exemplifies Malhoa's consummate ability to record with a lightness of touch and sincerity of feeling Realist costumbrista scenes.
At the foot of a large shady tree a barber, razor in his right hand, tilts the head of his customer backwards with his left hand to give a close shave. Behind the barber and his customer two men are in discussion; to the left side of the composition a road leads into a village.
The work compares with Malhoa's Os Bebados (The Drunkards) in its humourous depiction of working men employed in simple daily rituals and exchanges. Festivals, processions, harvests and daily toil in the fields were subjects that Malhoa embraced, often inspired by the artist's life in Estremadura, the town where he owned a summer villa.
Malhoa is acclaimed for his genre paintings, portraits and landscapes, imbued with a uniquely Portuguese realism. Together with Columbano Bordalo Pinheiro he was the leading proponent of Naturalist painting in Portugal in the late nineteenth century, and paved the way for the evolution of Portuguese modernism.
Malhoa attended the Academia de Belas-Artes in Lisbon where he studied under Tomás José da Anunciação and Miguel ngelo Lupi. While exposed to the Barbizon-influenced style of António Silva Porto, his compatriot in the Grupo do Leão (1881–9), Malhoa developed his own form of Realist-Naturalism.

Lot Notes
José Malhoa es, sin duda, el pintor que marcó la evolución hacia la modernidad de la pintura del siglo 19th Portuguesa. Conocido y admirado fuera y dentro de su país durante toda su vida, recibió medalles y honores en ambos lados del Atlantico. Meimbro fundador del 'Grupo del León' y del 'Gremio Artístico', la pintura de Malhoa busca la captación natural y espontánea de la naturaleza y el sentimiento del paisaje y de las costumbres de su país. Su obra alcanza en la década de los a años 90 un cariz popular, con escenas asociadas al trabajo en el campo que se desenvuelven en una atmósfera luminosa, con algo de escenográfico y de irreal.
José Malhoa is without a doubt the painter who marks the evolution towards modernism in 19th Century Portugese painting. Well known and admired both at home and abroad throughout his life, he was awarded medals and honours on both sides of the Atlantic. Malhoa was co-founder of the 'Group of Leon' and the 'Artistic Gremio', his painting of nature is spontaneous and natural representing the feelings and traditions of his country. His work of the late 90's was more rooted in the everyday, with sunfilled scenes of pastoral labour, worked with something of an ethereal touch.
