Description:
Briton Riviere, R.A. (1840-1920) The Sheepstealer signed with monogram and dated '18/84' (lower right) oil on canvas 55 x 92 in. (139.7 x 233.7 cm.) Sir John Aird, Bt. (1833-1911), and thence by decent to the present owner. J.F. Boyes, 'The Private Art Collections of London: Mr John Aird's, in Hyde Park Terrace', Art Journal, 1891, pp. 138-9. London, Royal Academy, 1885, no. 24. The Sheepstealer was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1885 and was bought by Sir John Aird, Bt., M.P. (1833-1911), in whose family it has remained until the present day. Aird was a wealthy contractor whose career embraced the removal of the Crystal Palace to Sydenham, the completion of the Manchester Ship Canal, and the building of the great dam at Aswan. Aird's achievements brought him a baronetcy and a seat in Parliament. His handsome house at 14 Hyde Park Terrace was furnished with a fine collection of modern British pictures and he was often referred to as 'St John Aird of the Large Heart' for his support of artists, from whom he commissioned works. Like the Liverpool ship owner F.R. Leyland, he tended to favour large imposing works of obvious importance, but whereas Leyland chose the Pre-Raphaelite and Aesthetic masters, Aird's taste was more academic. Leighton, Poynter, Alma-Tadema, Orchardson, Waterhouse, Marcus Stone and Luke Fildes were represented in the collection in addition to Dicksee, whose Chivalry (sold in these Rooms, 13 December 2012, lot 11 (£577,250)). The bulk of his collection passed to his son Sir John Renton Aird, Bt, and was subsequently dispersed at his sale at Christie's in 1935. The sale included Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema's The Roses of Heliogabalus and The Finding of Moses.
