Description:
Hubert Robert NIGHT PARTY AT THE PETIT TRIANON Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Or Provenance Literature G. Faroult and C. Voiriot,Hubert Robert, 1733-1808, Un peintre visionnaire, Paris 2016, pp. 358-9, under cat. no. 113, note 2; S. Catala, in exhibition catalogueÉloge de la sensibilité, Nantes/Rennes 2019, pp. 320-321, under cat. no. 127, fig. 127-1, reproduced. Catalogue Note This charming sketch is preparatory for a larger painting showing a Night Party at the Petit Trianon, also on panel, in the Musée de Quimper, datable to circa 1780-1784 (64 x 74 cm; inv. no. 873.1.411). As Sarah Catala has suggested in the recent exhibition Nantes/Rennes catalogue, the present work is probably an initial idea for a larger royal commission, now presumably lost (see Catala under Literature). The Quimper painting, which may be itself preparatory to another unknown larger composition and the present sketch are exceptional in the oeuvre of Hubert Robert. They show a wonderful image of a night-time party with its circular Love Temple built in 1778 on an artificial island to the east in the English garden of the Petit Trianon at Versailles. We also see the garden lit by artificial light sources emitting a wonderful glow to the night-time sky and all the groupings of elegant figures assembled to watch the spectacle. According to Catala the Quimper painting probably shows the party given on 3rd August 1781 for the brother of queen Marie-Antoinette, Emperor Joseph II, who travelled incognito to France under the name of Count Falkenstein. We kindly thank Sarah Catala for having confirmed the attribution to the artist, after inspection of the actual painting, and for her help in cataloguing this lot.
