Description:
Arturo Michelena (Venezuelan, 1863-1898) Portrait of María Tello Mendoza half length, seated, holding an apple signed and dated 'ARTURO MICHELENA/VALENCIA (VENEZUELA)/1889-' (upper right) oil on canvas 61 x 50cm (24 x 19 11/16in). Footnotes Michelena was born in Valencia in Venezuela. He began his artistic studies under the tutelage of his father, the painter Antonio Michelena. He became known as the one of the leading painters in Venezuela along with artists such as Martín Tovar y Tovar. He subsequently moved to Paris where he studied at the Academie Julian, and later worked under Jean-Paul Laurens, whose influence can be most clearly seen in Michelena's historical subjects and portraits. Michelena's work achieved great success in the world of Belle Epoque Paris, appealing to major collectors such as the Astors in New York. After two periods living in Paris, he returned to Venezuela in 1890 on the advice of his doctor. His impressive career was cut tragically short in 1898. Michelena is perhaps best known for his still life and genre scenes, but he remained a popular portraitist, and the present lot is a good example of his quick technical ability and the attention to detail that underpins all of his work.
