Milnes Gaskell; Sale, London, Christie’’’’s, 6 May 1927, lot 102 ("A Calm; and a Storm; Bay scenes with boats and figures – a pair"); Where acquired by Halleyn; Roger Ehrhardt de Schiltigheim; Sale, Paris, 16 February 1939, lot 16 (with its pendant as lot 17); Sale, Paris, Galérie Charpentier, 15 December 1959, lot 33. Catalogue Note Signed and dated 1747, this tranquil scene of a harbor in the morning fog was executed while Vernet was in Rome, where he had settled in 1734. The artist was elected to the Accademia di San Luca in 1743 and approved (agréé) by the Academie Royale in Paris three years later, just before he executed the present picture. By this time, the public was well acquainted with his work and his reputation had been established amongst the local French community as well as the Roman nobility and visitors on the Grand Tour. Vernet remained in Italy until 1753; it was during his time there that he developed the compositional vocabulary and painterly style that were to serve him so well throughout his long career. Vernet's paintings from this period were mostly imaginary landscapes or coastal views incorporating realistic landmarks and figures suggesting southern Italy. What made these views remarkable was his ability to evoke not simply a place and time of day, but a particular atmosphere and mood as well. The majority of Vernet's marine compositions explore mankind's precarious relationship with nature, either celebrating the sea as a serene passage ripe with bountiful harvest or demonstrating man's fragility in the face of nature's wrath. The present work demonstrates the former, with fishermen setting off in the morning fog for a day’’’’s work, the sea serene and welcoming as the sun begins to warm the clouds above. While the exact location is not identifiable, the scene’’’’s sense of familiarity and timelessness encapsulate Vernet’’’’s remarkable painting skills. Characteristically, this painting was originally conceived as a pair; the present canvas, depicting a calm, morning sky and tranquil waters, was intended to compliment a storm scene. The works remained together until their sale in 1959, and the location of the pendant is unknown. A similar composition by the artist, signed and dated 1747, was in the collection of Louis Grandchamp des Raux, sold Paris, Sotheby's, 26 March 2015, lot 24. At the time of the sale, the provenance for the Grandchamp painting was confused with that of the present work.

Claude-Joseph Vernet AVIGNON 1714 - 1789 PARIS MOUNTAINOUS RIVER LANDSCAPE WITH TWO FISHERMEN CASTING A NET AND A MAN WITH HIS HORSE-DRAWN CART TRAVELLING ALONG A SANDY PATH signed and dated lower left: J. Vernet. f. 1780. oil on canvas 26.8 by 34.4 cm.; 10 1/2 by 13 1/2 in. Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Saleroom Notice Catalogue Note As a pure Alpine scene, this is a very rare work within Vernet's œuvre. In 1778 Vernet spent six weeks in the Swiss Alps with his son Carle, at the invitation of his most important patron, Jean Girardot de Marigny. The trip itself is testament to the close relationship between the artist and the financier, who formed an important collection of contemporary French art. This mountainous landscape with rapids would have been inspired by Vernet's trip of two years prior, as well as the five goauches he purchased in 1780 from the Swiss artist Caspar Wolf (1735–98), known for his dramatic Alpine landscapes. The composition is close to that known from an undated engraving after Vernet depicting rapids and fishermen against a mountain backdrop.
