Odilon Redon: Christ et ses disciples (c1905)

“The present work draws on the theme of discipleship and the divine nature of Christ rather than a specific episode of the New Testament. Though he was not an orthodox Christian, Redon mixed in Catholic circles and was clearly attracted to the figure of Christ who features frequently at this time.” READ FULL ESSAY: Sotheby’s…

Henri Martin: Amoureux au printemps

“In 1900, Martin acquired property in Labastide-du-Vert, a small village in France’s Midi-Pyrenées region. On the thirty acres of land stood a large seventeenth-century manor named Marquayrol, a place Martin would enjoy as a summer residence and the setting for many of his greatest pictures. The artist wrote of this period as a turning point in…

He graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts from the University of Dhaka in 1978 and then undertook a course at…

Peter Paul Rubens: Portrait of a Man as Mars (c.1620)

“Painted in Antwerp around 1620 when the Flemish artist was at the height of his creative powers, Portrait of a Man as Mars blends the genres of portraiture, allegory, and mythology. Rubens depicts the armor-clad figure wearing an all’antica helmet once owned by the artist himself. Imbued with a magnetic virility, the man conveys the…

Hans Christian Aavik: O Magnum Mysterium (Lauridsen)

“Estonian violinist Hans Christian Aavik, winner of the 2022 Carl Nielsen International Competition, gives a moving and atmospheric performance of O magnum mysterium by Morten Lauridsen, who turned 80 earlier this year. The piece began life as an unaccompanied choral work, setting a medieval text that describes the “great mystery” of Christ’s humble birth in…

Mary Cassatt: Children Playing With Dog (1907)

“An exceptional example of the American Impressionist Mary Cassatt’s famed depictions of motherhood, Children Playing with a Dog presents the unconditional love and complex relationship between a mother and her two children with both psychological and stylistic finesse. While the Madonna and Child has a long historical precedent, Cassatt transformed the subject into her own signature theme….

Edgar Degas: Préparation pour la classe (1882-85)

“In Préparation pour la classe, Degas explores the rhythmic possibilities of a group of three dancers, two leaning forward slightly, feet in third position, but in mirror image of each other. A third dancer, at the left, is present in ghostly, shadowed profile, her limbs almost as transparent as the tulle of her tutu. Degas…

Pierre Bonnard: Nature morte (1939)

“A scintillating vision of the domestic everyday, Nature morte from 1939 embodies the expressive possibilities of light and color. A superlative example of Pierre Bonnard’s late still lifes, the present work dates to the year in which the artist permanently relocated to the Côte d’Azur as a consequence of the Second World War and subsequently…

Marie Berrio: Flor (2013)

“Flor is a paradigmatic example of María Berrío’s acclaimed practice. Emerging from a textured gold ground evocative of a Medieval icon or Viennese Secession masterpiece, the figure is built up of innumerable pieces of wafer-thin Japanese paper and washes of watercolor. Berrio’s work sees her filter memories of her childhood spent on a farm in…

Mary Cassatt: Young Lady in a Loge Gazing to Right (1878-79)

“…As Paul Gauguin, the original owner of Young Lady in a Loge Gazing to Right, reflected after viewing another painting in the series, “Mlle Cassatt has as much charm, but she has more power” than her female contemporaries (as quoted in The Queen Bees: The Women Who Shaped America, New York, 1979, p. 117). It…

John William Waterhouse: Saint Cecilia (1895)

“In Christian iconography, Cecilia is the patron saint of music. The connection to music relates to the early accounts of Cecilia’s life. According to these, Cecilia did not want to hear musical instruments because she wanted to remain pure to be able to hear heavenly music. Saint Cecilia is based on a verse from Alfred…

‘In our rising nation, I see the forces embodied in womanhood; the beginning, and then, the development and flowering into the fullest stature of a nation- a people!’ The present work is unique in composition in comparison to other works of the ‘Africa Dances’ series as the posture of the women is hunched over, contrasting…

Camille Pissarro: La Gardeuse de chèvre (1881)

“Portrayals of local peasant life capture the rural charm of Pontoise, where Pissarro lived from 1866 until 1883. This location allowed Pissarro to separate himself from the influence of his predecessors, the established French landscape painters, and to depict an environment previously scarcely recorded by other masters.” READ FULL ESSAY: Sotheby’s See More Camille Pissarro…

Gari Melchers: Young Mother (1892-5)

“In this poignant work entitled Young Mother, Gari Melchers portrays a mother and child, a favorite theme throughout the artist’s career, in a form suggestive of religious imagery. Evoking past images of the Madonna and Child and introducing the compositional device of a porcelain plate as a halo. Melchers creates a radiant image of a…
