Description:
SYDNEY STARR (ENGLISH/AMERICAN 1857 - 1925), FAIRGROUND MOONRISE 1885 oil on artist's board, signed and dated '85 lower left 38.5cm x 27cm In a gilt Whistler frame Label verso: Doig, Wilson & Wheatley, 26 South Castle Street, Edinburgh, and Newman, Soho Note: Sydney Starr was born in Kingsborough, Hull, in 1857, and is an important figure in the history of British art in the final quarter of the nineteenth century. He had a close relationship with the artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler. Starr's paintings of the 1880s were markedly Whistlerian, and he became a key member of the group of artists who styled themselves 'The London Impressionists.' He also wrote as an art critic for a weekly newspaper called 'The Whirlwind.' In 1892, however, after an ill-fated love affair with the wife of a patron, Starr emigrated to the United States. There, he played a key role in securing the sale of Whistler's controversial painting 'Nocturne in Black and Gold (The Falling Rocket)' to Samuel Untermyer for 800 guineas. This painting had been the subject of Whistler's law suit again the art critic John Ruskin in the 1870s. Starr died in New York in 1925. Although examples of his work are held in several major public collections, including Tate Britain and the National Gallery of Canada, they rarely appear on the market. 'Fairground Moonrise 1885' is a fine example dating from his most interesting Whistlerian period.
