Description:
Lot 145: After Claude J. Vernet, Sailing Boat on Stormy See, 19th C. Claude-Joseph Vernet (1714-1789) Description: Oil on wood France, early 19th century After Claude Joseph Vernet (1714-1789) - French painter Verso on the panel inscribed 'C.J. Vernet' Damaged sailing boat in front of a rocky coast In an elaborately designed, ornamentally adorned stucco frame Total dimensions, framed: 23 x 32 cm Good condition This finely conducted marine painting was obviously executed after a motif of the French painter Claude Joseph Vernet (1714-1789), who is known for his view of French harbors. In front of a rocky coast the observer is presented with a dramatic scene - a damaged sailing boat is bowing to the uproarious waves. The painting testifies of great artistic skill in the detailedness and atmospheric coloring. Very dramatic are the swell and the lightening of the rocks. Painting and frame are in good condition. The painting shows a slight, regular craquelé. There are various color touch ups in the water below the ship and in the left image area. There is a small chip in the upper right corner of the frame. The wooden panel measures 12.6 x 22.2 cm and the total dimensions, including the frame, are 23 x 32 cm. (tm)

Description:
Claude-Joseph Vernet AVIGNON 1714 - 1789 PARIS VIEW OF THE PONTE ROTTO, ROME oil on canvas, unlined 25 1/4 by 34 in.; 64 by 86.5 cm. Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Saleroom Notice Provenance Probably Godefroy Brossais Saint-Marc (1803-1878), Archbishop of Rennes; His sale, Paris, Lainné, 14 March 1864, Lot 9 (with a pendant, lot 8, depicting a View of the Castel Sant'Angelo). Literature Probably F. Ingersoll-Smouse, Joseph Vernet, Peintre de Marine, Paris 1926, vol. II, p. 92, cat. no. 1965. We are grateful to Emilie Beck for confirming this painting to be a work by Vernet, based on firsthand inspection. This serene view of the Ponte Rotto and Tiber River is probably identifiable with the painting at one time in the collection of Godefroy Brossais Saint-Marc (1803-1878), Archbishop of Rennes (see Provenance) which was sold with its pendant, a View of the Castel Sant’’Angelo, in 1864. Its composition is similar to a painting of the same subject in the collection of the Musée du Louvre (inv. 8348) which also has a pendant of the Castel Sant’’ Angelo (signed and dated 1745). The so-called Ponte Rotto (or “broken bridge”) is what remains of the ancient Pons Aemilius, originally built in the 2 nd century BC. Today there is only one arch remaining, but in Vernet’’s time three arches were still intact. The view looks across the Tiber to the East bank, with the Romanesque campanile of Santa Maria in Cosmedin seen in the distance and, along the river, the arched outlet of the Cloaca Maxima, the ancient Roman sewer system. Vernet uses an almost tonal palette, bathing the scene in a beautiful silvery light. This View of the Ponte Rotto, like the Louvre version, has an informal quality and immediacy that seem to anticipate Corot’’s plein air paintings of Rome in the 19 th century. 1 1. See P. Conisbee, in Claude-Joseph Vernet 1714-1789, exhibition catalogue, London 1976, under cat. no. 11.

Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Saleroom Notice Provenance Acquired in the 1820s by an ancestor of the present owner; Thence by direct family descent. Catalogue Note Painted at the apex of the artist’’s career in 1765, at the same as his famous series of the Ports of France, this Coastal landscape at sunset has not been seen on the open market for nearly two hundred years. Although this canvas has enjoyed an unbroken provenance in the same family for nearly two hundred years, its earliest history remains unknown. Despite its evident quality and the presence of both signature and date, it cannot be identified with any certainty with any untraced works recorded in Vernet's Livre de raison or Account Book from that year. The painting was one of at least two canvases by Vernet acquired in the 1820s by a forebear of the present owner. Another such, a celebrated composition entitled Les Baigneuses, signed and dated 1759, had graced the collections of both the Duc de Choiseul and the Prince de Conti, and was sold in these Rooms on the 5 July 1995, lot 83. Both canvases were in all probability bought in England, and probably London, at much the same date. Vernet's work enjoyed enormous popularity with English (and indeed all European) collectors, both Grand Tourists visiting Europe before the French Revolution, and those buying his pictures when numbers became available on the market afterwards. An example of one such work, also from 1765, is the Shipwreck commissioned by Sir Henry Hoare in October 1765 and now at Stourhead. 1 In 1765, when Vernet painted this picture, his fame and reputation was probably at its height, for he had just returned to Paris after a decade of travelling around France for his celebrated series of the Ports of France, commissioned by Louis XV in 1753. Indeed the last of these, the Vue du port de Dieppe was exhibited in the Paris Salon that same year. It is quite possible that the present painting was shown alongside it, for Vernet exhibited under no. 76 a group of paintings for which we have no descriptions. It certainly epitomises Vernet's work of this date, with the design constructed around the principal compositional elements of the man of war, the rocky bluffs, the ruined tower, and the foreground occupied by fishermen or other spectators. These were all motifs that Vernet had developed as a result of his twenty-year stay in Italy between 1734 and 1753. A good example from the same year is the Mediterranean harbour scene sold in these Rooms, 4 July 2007, lot 64. The massive rocky bluff which dominates the centre of the painting is slightly less usual, but can be found in works going back as far as the 1740s, such as that inscribed and dated Romae 1747 sold in these Rooms, 10 April 2003, lot 100. The attribution to Vernet was confirmed by the late Dr. Philip Conisbee following first-hand inspection in 1985, and has more recently kindly been confirmed by Dr. Emily Beck-Saiello on the basis of photographs. 1.
