HUBERT ROBERT (french 1733-1808) PAYSAGE AVEC UNE STATUE ÉQUESTRE Signed with initials ''H.R.'' and dated ''1780'' on stone tablet at bottom center left, oil on canvas 22 x 35 in. (55.9 x 88.9cm) Collection of Leon M. Lowenstein, Paris, France (1935). Private Collection, Paris, France. Property from the Daniel W. Dietrich II Foundation. Galerie Jean Charpentier, In the Collection of Leon M. Lowenstein, exhibition catalogue, December 17, 1935, p. 32, no. 76. Earning the nickname ''Robert des Ruines'' ("Robert of Ruins"), Hubert Robert is considered amongst the most important painters of architectural ruins and capriccios (imaginary landscapes) in 18th century France. His paintings were particularly popular with French aristocracy, undoubtedly helped by his father Nicolas Robert being an upper-servant to the Marquis of Choiseul-Stainville. By the 1770s, Robert had received the appointment of Draftsman and Designer of the King''s Gardens. He also designed gardens for the Marquis de Laborde and the Marquis de Girardin, and the philosopher Voltaire commissioned him to paint decorations for his theater at Ferney. Robert received a classical education at the Collège de Navarre in Paris, and later with the entourage of the Count of Stainville in Rome in 1754. Spending the next eleven years in Italy, he developed a fascination with ruins, as well as close ties with Italian artists Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Giovanni Paolo Panini, and Jean-Honoré Fragonard - each of whom would serve as a strong influence. Robert''s keen interest in ruins paintings coincided with concurrent excavations at Herculaneum and Pompeii, and the subsequent strong European fascination with antiquity. Highly prolific and much beloved as a draftsman, printmaker, and designer of gardens and furnishings for the wealthy and for royalty, Robert was even awarded prestigious lodgings in the Louvre from 1778 until 1802. With his blending of factual accuracy with fantasy, Robert maintains his standing as one of the premier painters of his day.

Hubert Robert was one of the pre-eminent French landscape painters of the 18th century, training for over a decade in Rome before establishing himself at the center of the Parisian art world upon his return to the city in 1765. He exhibited regularly at the Salons until 1797 and completed countless commissions for the nobility, aristocracy and foreign dignitaries throughout his career. He was renowned for his imaginary landscapes featuring ancient ruins and beautiful gardens, often incorporating both known and fantastical architectural elements in his compositions. Robert continued to return to his drawings of Italian ruins for inspiration once he returned to France, eventually earning the sobriquet "Robert des Ruines." A similar depiction of an ancient circular temple to that in the first of the present paintings, for example, also appears in a painting by the artist of 1784,1 and a structure similar to the broken columns beneath a cornice on the right of the second painting is featured in a work by the artist which sold at Sotheby's London in 2012.2 The present pair was painted in 1780, the year Robert moved with his family into the Louvre, where he was granted a studio. Though he was a prolific painter throughout his life, there are few known paintings by the artist from this year. The pair will be included in the catalogue raisonné of the paintings of Hubert Robert, to be published by the Wildenstein Institute. 1.

Description:
HUBERT ROBERT (PARIS 1733-1808) An architectural capriccio with figures before the temple of Jupiter at Split; and Architectural capriccio with a fountain and the ruins of the Salona's aqueduct at Split signed and dated '... Q.R./ ROBERTI/ 1766' black chalk, pen and brown ink, watercolor, over a red chalk counterproof 13 3/8 x 17 ¾ in. (34 x 45 cm.), a pair (2)

These two drawings are inspired by etchings by Charles-Louis Clérisseau (1721-1820), executed for the Antiquities of Spalato, published in London in 1764 by Robert Adam. Even if the general compositions are the same, Hubert Robert has enliven the scenes with his characteristic washerwomen and shepherds. These watercolors were executed over a red chalk counterproof. The Musée des Beaux-Arts of Besançon has another counterproof of the second drawing (Catala, op.cit., no. 107) and the original red chalk was sold at the Hôtel Drouot, Paris, 13 December 2006, lot 20. The practice of the counterproofing, frequently used in France in the 18th Century, especially by Fragonard and Hubert Robert, enables to multiply the works of arts, to sell them to collectors and amateurs. Worked up by the artist, as the present pair, they regain their status as autonomous drawings. Counterproofs were also \“part of a cultural practice of gift and exchange associated with shared artistic activities\” in Rome where Fragonard and Robert were pensionnaires at the Académie de France (P. Stein, Fragonard. Drawing triumphant. Works from New York Collections, exh. cat., New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2016-17, p. 56).

Provenance Stathatos collection (according to the Cailleux catalogues). Jean de Cayeux (L. 4461). An unidentified mounter's mark (L. 3062). Literature S. Catala, Les Hubert Robert de Besançon, exh. cat., Besançon, Musée des Beaux-Arts, 2013, under no. 107. Exhibited Paris, Galerie Cailleux, Hommage à Hubert Robert (1733-1808). Peintures et Dessins, 1967, no.16 (The Salona's aqueduct). Paris, Galerie Cailleux, Autour du néoclassicisme. Peintures, dessins, sculptures, 1973, nos. 37-8.
