Description:
Edwin Lord Weeks 1849 - 1903 AMERICAN ISFAHAN BAZAAR signed E. L. Weeks (lower left) oil on canvas 39 3/4 by 32 1/4 in. 100.9 by 81.9 cm Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Saleroom Notice Authentication We would like to thank Dr. Ellen K. Morris for kindly confirming the authenticity of this lot which will be included in her Edwin Lord Weeks catalogue raisonné. Provenance José Antonio Torres, Barcelona, Spain James Khoury, Amarillo, Texas (acquired from the above, 1965) Private Collector (acquired from the above, her uncle, and sold, Sotheby’’s, New York, April 21, 1991, lot 52, illustrated, as Entrance to the Grand Bazaar at Ispahan) Acquired at the above sale by the present owner Catalogue Note Weeks traveled through Persia only once, in 1892-93, and considered his visit to the city of Isfahan (in present-day Iran) as the highlight of his entire expedition. Although elements of the present work relate to Week's observations elsewhere in the region, the principal backdrop is derived from his studies of the Imperial Bazaar at Isfahan and its famous seventeenth century mosque, the Masjid-I-Lutfullah. The present work, painted circa 1901-03, is directly related to Week's Ispahan (the French translation of the site) exhibited at the Paris, Salon, of 1901, later sold in the artist's estate sale, and again most recently in these rooms on October 13, 1992, lot 46.

EDWIN LORD WEEKS CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ PROJECT LETTER OF AUTHENTICATION 5 June 2015 Re: Study by Edwin Lord Weeks of a boy on a charpoi holding a bird on a stick Signed "E.L.W." and inscribed "Delhi '83" (lower left) Oil on canvas 200 ¼ by 14 in. (51.4 by 35.6 cm),I have examined this painting based on digital photographs and I can state without reservation that it is a wholly authentic work by Edwin Lord Weeks, signed with the artist's initials, rendered in 1883, with its subject painted in Delhi, India. This work will be included in the Edwin Lord Weeks catalogue raisonné,Sincerely, Ellen K. Morris, PhD © 2015, Ellen K. Morris, PhD. No part of this Authentication may be reproduced without permission. The text as it will appear in the catalogue raisonné: "Boy on a charpoi holding a bird on a stick" 20 ¼ × 14 in. (51.4 × 35.6 cm) Signed with initials "E.L.W." and inscribed "Delhi '83" lower left corner,This finely painted playful image of a boy sitting on a charpoi (a traditional Indian rope bed) holding a bird on a stick is a heretofore unknown study executed by Weeks in Delhi during his first expedition to India in 1882-83. The size, with Weeks initials, location and date indicate that Weeks was particularly pleased with this work. Painted mostly in muted umber tones, this study is remarkable for its chiaroscuro, its play of light and shade, within an interior scene which is only suggestive in its brushwork. Weeks delicate draftsmanship is particularly evident in the boy's legs and feet, his hand, his ruddy face and the sturdy bedpost in the foreground. The boy's face is concentrated on the bird, which may fly away at any instant. This study is notable for its realistically painted subject within a vigorous surrounding space of loose brushwork contrasting with it. Likewise, the woven rope charpoi is deftly painted in a loose manner and disappears into the middle right edge. No doubt this work reappears in some larger painting as an anecdotal feature, which was Weeks' frequent practice with his best studies.

Description:
Edwin Lord Weeks 1849 - 1903 AMERICAN A PERFUMER'S SHOP, BOMBAY signed E.L. Weeks lower left oil on canvas 65 by 55cm., 25½ by 21½in. Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Saleroom Notice Authentication This painting will be included in the Weeks catalogue raisonné being prepared by Dr. Ellen K. Morris. Provenance Kennedy Galleries, New York Painted circa 1890, this highly polished work originates from an in situ study measuring 26 by 20cm exhibited in 1895 at the Empire of India Exhibition (no. 3), London. Weeks executed a number of studies of shop fronts in Bombay and Ahmedabad in the late 1880s, which he worked up as finished paintings in his Paris studio later on. This exceptional painting of a perfumer’’s shop is an outstanding example for its glistening blue & white Chinese vases, masterly studies in porcelain reflections, and the superb rendition of a bejeweled Nautch dancer wrapped in gold sampling a tiny vase of perfume. The seated figure to the left is an Afghan identified by Weeks in what he termed an 'immense red turban'. The canvas has been relined. Under ultra-violet light the old varnish fluoresces unevenly in some areas making the surface somewhat difficult to read, however only some very minor signs of retouching are clearly visible, notably a number of spots in the background in the upper-right quadrant. This work is in good condition and ready to hang. Presented in a substantial gilt decorative frame. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
