Description:
Gyula von (Julius de) Benczur (Hungarian, 1844-1920) The capture of Louis XVI and his family signed 'Benczùr Gyula' and inscribed and dated 'München 1872' (lower right) oil on canvas 57 1/2 x 86in (146 x 218.44cm) Footnotes Provenance Darius Ogden Mills, Millbrae, California. Butterfield & Butterfield, 'The Contents of Happy House, Millbrae', November 3, 1953. Emil Hagstrom, San Francisco, acquired at the above sale. By descent to the present owner. Exhibited San Francisco, California Palace of the Legion of Honor. Literature Gabor Bellak, Benczùr, Gyula, 1844-1920 , Budapest 2001, plate 9, illustrated. Gyula Benczùr was one of the most successful and celebrated Hungarian painters of the 19th and early 20th centuries. As a young student of Karl Piloty's at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, he worked alongside Hans Makart and Franz von Defregger, and had a studio next to Arnold Böcklin, whom he befriended. During the 1870s, Benczùr began a series of monumental historical canvases, depicting scenes from the lives of important historical figures, among them two large compositions showing Louis XV and Louis XVI of France. The German slant to these works is evident in the representation of the monarchs as helpless and despondent in the face of the menacing crowds, as in The capture of Louis XVI and his family , or as valet to an insatiable mistress, as in Louis XV and Mme. DuBarry , painted two years later. On both paintings the opulent Roccocco interiors belong to Schleissheim Castle, whose rooms Benczùr sketched extensively. The extravagant Bavarian King Louis II was very taken with Benczùr's Roccocco paintings and commissioned the artist not only to paint for his residences but also to study the decorations of the palaces of Versailles and Fontainebleau, thus fueling a neo-Roccocco fashion that was raging in Bavaria at the time. For his American and English clients Benczùr copied these French-themed paintings several times. At least one smaller copy of the present painting is known to have been previously sold at auction. Emil Hagstrom, born in Copenhagen, was the epitome of the self-made man as well as the 'American Dream'. He emigrated to the United States in 1907, where he started his own business that grew from a humble creamery to two successful chain stores with hundreds of employees, which later merged with Safeway, Inc. Emil Hagstrom and his wife Esther loved attending auctions and acquiring fine art and antiques. They enjoyed attending many of the high-profile San Francisco-based auctions at Butterfield & Butterfield, the leading auction firm in California at the time. During the 1940s and 1950s they acquired important pieces, most notably from the Estate of Mary K. Hopkins, held at Sherwood Hall in San Francisco in 1942, and the Estate of Darius Ogden Mills, a prominent banker and, at one time, the wealthiest man in California, in 1953.

Description:
Julius von Benczúr (Nyiregyhaza 1844-1916 Budapest) “Ekkehards Flight”, illustration for Joseph Victor von Scheffel‘s novel Ekkehard, 1875-1880, charcoal on paper, laid down on canvas, signed Benczúr Gyula on lower left edge, 85.5 x 118 cm, browning, foxing, framed, (Sch) This illustration by Benczúr, for Victor von Scheffel‘s historical novel Ekkehard (Frankfurt 1857), had been lost to date and known only from a photographic reproduction which appeared amongst the works of publisher Friedrich Bruckmann. Benczúr was one of Hungary’’’’s most important nineteenth century illustrators. His works, primarily illustrations for Friedrich von Schiller, were only published in Germany and were subsequently scattered over a variety of places during the war, with the result that today only a few of Benczúr’’’’s drawings remain. Only two original illustrations for Schiller’’’’s works (both, like Ekkehard’’’’s Flight, in charcoal on paper) are held in public collections. Accompanied by a written letter of authentication issued by Dr. Bellák Gábor of the Hungarian National Museum, Budapest.
