Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
PROPERTY OF A LADY Simeon Solomon LA SPERANZA 1840-1905 signed with initials and dated l.r.: SS/ 1885; titled within a cartouche l.c. pencil on card 33 by 23cm., 13 by 9in. Catalogue Note La Speranza translates from Italian into English as Hope, the same subject made famous by the various versions of George Frederic Watts' painting. Watts did not begin the first version of Hope (Tate) until 1886 and therefore Solomon cannot have been inspired by him but they did work on similar allegorical themes throughout their careers. 'Speranza' was also the pseudonym of Lady Jane Wilde whose son Oscar owned many pictures by Solomon, the loss of which were lamented in his accusatory letter to Lord Alfred Douglas, De Profundis.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Simeon Solomon (1840-1905) A young woman, in a swoon signed with monogram and dated '7 62' (lower right) pencil and watercolour with gum arabic, heightened with bodycolour on paper 7 ¼ x 5 ¾ in. (18.4 x 14.6 cm.) This watercolour clearly demonstrates the influence of Rossetti upon Solomon's early work. The pose of the young woman wearing a garland of roses, fallen backwards, her eyes closed as if in death, the inclusion of an organ, at which she is seated and the second, possibly angelic, figure are all strongly reminiscent of Rossetti's drawing of Saint Cecilia (1856-7), executed for the Moxon Tennyson. The seated woman appears to be modelled on Lizzie Siddal, who had died of a laudanum overdose in February of that year. The present work is similar in style and degree of finish to The Painters Pleasaunce, 1861, The Whitworth Art Gallery, University of Manchester. An early exercise in Aestheticism with the disposition of strong colours, the arts and crafts style chair and the objects placed in the background.
