Description:
Claude Joseph Vernet (Avignon 1714-1789 Paris) A harbour scene at sunset; and A shipwreck on a rocky coast the former signed and dated 'J Vernet.f.1775' (lower right) a pair, oil on canvas 73.8 x 107.8cm (29 1/16 x 42 7/16in). (2) Footnotes Provenance Painted for Gabriel Courtois de Pressigny (1745-1823) M. d'Aubigny, until after 1900 (probably General Arsene d'Aubigny, died Paris 1913) Sale, Paris, Palais Galliera, 20 June, 1961, lots 85 and 86 Private Collection, England With Whitfield Fine Art, London, where purchased by the present owner Exhibited Paris, Salon, 1775, no. 32 (both paintings lent by M. de Pressigny) Literature The description of one of the pair is in the MS list, the artist's Livre de raison , in the Bibliothèque d'Avignon (see Lagrange, Joseph Vernet, sa vie et son oeuvre , 1858, under No. L. 182: 14 mars 1775: deux mille quatre cents livres 'pour prix d'un tableau de trois pieds que je lui ai fait, et quatre vingt-six livres pour la bordure.') Described in the Livret du Salon , 1775: '32, Deux Tableaux, l'un un mer calme au coucher du soleil, l'autre le commencement d'une tempête, avec le naufrage d'un vaisseau. Chacun de 3 pieds 3 pouces de large, sur 2 pieds 2 pouces de haut; ils appartiennent a M. de Pressigny' (Diderot, Salons , ed. Jean Seznec, Oxford, 1967, Vol. IV, p. 27, nos. 997 and 998). When the second of the present pair of paintings was described in detail in the critique of the Salon of 1775, it was obvious to what extent it appealed to the Romantic sensibilities of pre-Revolutionary France: 'Peint-il une tempête, le jour est obscuri par les nuages les plus afreux. La foudre et les éclairs se croiset de'un bout à l'autre de l'horizon et le font paraître tout en feu. Les vagues en courroux semblent menacer le ciel et blanchissent la mer de leur écume. Les vaisseuax sont pres d'être submergés. On aperçoit à la lueur pale des éclairs, toutes les horreurs de la mort sur les figures de tout leurs habitans et la spectateur sensible ne peut de défendre d'un saisissement pareil à celui qu'il l'éprouverait s'il était sur le rivage témoin de tant d'horreurs.' (Bibliothèque Nationale, Estampes YD 219). Vernet's intention in conceiving the present paintings as a pair - juxtaposing the serene and tranquil atmosphere of the harbour sunset alongside the tumultuous and dramatic shipwreck - perfectly suited his artistic ambition to create an idealized view of Nature's majesty. That the artist was far more at home with this genre can be gleaned from some of the acrimoniouis exchanges he had over the series of the Ports de France which he painted between 1753 and 1765, in which he found it at times difficult to reconcile the topographical requirements of his patrons with his own desire to create satisfying works of art. He finally gave up the task, leaving the series incomplete and returning once more to his preferred depictions of Italianate seascapes, such as the present pair. In this he was highly successful: to his Italian and French clients he came to add British collectors, German princes and Russian nobles. From the 1760s to the 1780s no collection was deemed complete without examples of Vernet's art. The original owner, Gabriel Courtois de Pressigny, was born in Dijon. He was appointed archbishop of Saint Malo and took part in the Assemblées of 1780 and 1788 where he represented his Order in the debate on the constitutional role of the clergy. He emigrated in 1792, but returned after the 18 brumaire (November 1799) and lived in retirment until the Restoration of the Bourbon monarchy. He was then nominated to be Ambassador to the court in Rome. Ennobled in 1818, he was appointed Archbishop of Besançon in 1819. The paintings were seen by the late D. Philip Conisbee of the National Gallery of Art, Washington in 1999, when he confirmed them as autograph.

This painting is well restored and should be hung in its current condition. The paint layer is cleaned. The canvas has an old glue lining that has been reinforced in a few areas on the extreme edges, but is sufficiently supporting the paint layer and canvas throughout. The condition of the paint layer itself is remarkably good. This is a picture from an early period for Vernet, and the paint layer is clear and well-articulated. There are no damages or restorations of any consequence at all. This is a work that withstands the closest scrutiny, and it is in unusually good condition.
