Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Léon Spilliaert (1881-1946) Le hangar du dirigeable signed and dated 'L.Spilliaert 10' (upper left) gouache, watercolour and pastel on paper 25 ¾ x 19 ¾ in. (65.2 x 50.2 cm.) Executed in 1910 This work will be included in the forthcoming Spilliaert catalogue raisonné currently being prepared by Anne Adriaens-Pannier. Executed in 1910, Le hangar du dirigeable belongs to a series whose inspiration arises from Robert Goldschmidt's astonishing dirigible balloon, the Belgique. In 1908, the scientist, passionate aviation pioneer and close friend of Spilliaert, began to work on plans for the construction of Belgium's first zeppelin, the Belgique's whose voyage was in June 1909. After twenty-three successful flights this zeppelin was deflated and Goldschmidt built a successor, the Belgique II, 65 meters long and 11 meters wide, launched a year later. Goldschmidt initially asked Spilliaert to depict the test flights of his zeppelin in an artistic manner. Spilliart subsequently executed a series of works depicting the Belgique II, both in flight and moored in its hangar. Some paintings show the yellow zeppelin high in the sky, reduced to a little dot, others its full glory over the entire width of the sheet. The present lot, like other works from this celebrated series, depict the airship's hangar, whose almost surreal dimensions seem to have had a particular appeal for Spilliaert. Here, his cropping of the picture plane heightens the almost abstract nature of the composition, and imbues it with mystery. Set in a deserted, misty countryside, the hangar, extracted from its habitual context, infuses the image with an aura of mystery, typical of Spilliaert's best landscapes.

Description:
Leon Spilliaert (1881-1946) Nude holding a cup Leon Spilliaert (1881-1946) Nude holding a cup signed and dated 'L. Spilliaert 1910' (lower left) pastel, wax crayons, watercolour and ink on paper 65 x 50.5 cm. Executed in 1910. Léon Spilliaert was born and raised in the Belgian coastal city Ostend. Although this city is particularly known for its beach and recreating sunbathers, Spilliaert was mainly inspired by the silent and dark nights and the most abandoned places of the city. Also the female bathers, often naked, became one of Spilliaert's favourite subjects. Both of these motifs can be found in the present lot, Nude holding a cup. The woman seems to be handing the cup to someone, but it\\\’s unclear to whom. It evokes the spectator to use his imagination. The naked female figure as a symbol, reaching towards the imperceptible of the mysterious world she\\\’s located in. The theme of the naked woman with a cup occurs several times in Spilliaert's oeuvre. Often he depicts the female figure in black with a corresponding dark background. Therefore it is remarkable that for the present lot Spilliaert mostly used bright colours. It shows the influence of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, whom Spilliaert admired around 1910.
