ABOUT THE ARTIST
>
Knight was a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, joining in January 1868. He withdrew in 1879 and was re-elected in 1883. He was also elected a member of the Dudley Gallery, the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, the Royal Etchers, the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art, the Limners Club and Art-Min-Afon, Betws-y-Coed. In 1874 he was a Royal Manchester Institution prize-winner and in 1891 he won a bronze medal at the Paris Exhibition.[3]
>
At the Royal Academy his works were frequently hung on the line. His work is in the their permanent collection as well as at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Gallery London, Manchester Art Gallery, Walker Art Gallery and other provincial galleries
>
The Manchester School of Painters was formed by a number of disgruntled young vanguard painters in the 1870s. They were deeply influenced by the artist, Joseph Knight who was a successful painter, etcher and photographer. He was the founder member of the Manchester School of Painters. Knight painted how “he” desired and refused to conform to traditional Art School rules and this appealed to his young admirers. Twice weekly they would all meet up at Knight’s studio in York Place behind the Union Chapel in Oxford Road, Manchester to discuss new ways to develop their techniques.

Pair 19th Century Pastel & Gouache Portraits Of Man & Wife
We are offering for sale this exquisite pair of Victorian Pastel Portraits of a very well dressed lady and her husband, which have been executed in a masterful way by an unknown artist, whose use of the medium is of the highest level of expertise.
-
The lady is seated on a red, buttoned back chair or sofa and is resting her arm on a table covered in similar fabric with a studded and fringed edge.
-
She is wearing a dark grey dress, with black trimmings, which has a cream lace pleated stand up collar and cuffs. She has a locket on a black ribbon around her neck.
Her hair is plaited and piled up on top of her head with an ornament to one side and she is wearing gold drop earrings.
There is a chatelaine hanging from her belt. On the table is a tazza, possibly with a flower arrangement in it and perched upon the very top is a canary.
-
Her husband is seated on a padded roll-back chair and is leaning one arm upon the edge of a table or desk. He is dressed in a black suit with waistcoat and a black cravat with a stud.
There is a gold watch on an albert hanging from his waitcoat.
His hair is quite long and curly and he had a beard and moustache.

The fine detail, particularly on the faces of these portraits is quite remarkable and they make a very handsome pair, unlike so many portraits of men and women of this and earlier periods.
-
FRAMES
The pastels are double mounted to complement and are newly framed in a 2" ornate frame which suits them very well. They are ready to hang.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Leon John Sprinck (1862-1948), was a Russian artist, born in France, who later became a naturalised British subject.
We know that he was in the UK in 1898, at 9 Duke Street, Portland Place, London W.1, as that was the year that he married in Hampstead, Emily Margaret Macdonald (13/3/1866 - 1/2/1949) of 45 Netherhall Gardens, Hampstead.
In 1916, he is listed in Kelly's Directory as an artist at 8 Boltons Studios, Redcliffe Road, Sth.Kensington.
They had three children, two sons and a daughter.
We found online a lengthy biography on his eldest son, who was a very talented organist and music teacher, which states the following:-
-
'His father, Leon Sprinck, was a distinguished portrait painter from the court of the Czar of Russia who fled to London before the revolution of 1917. Donald's mother was a MacDonald from the Isle of Skye.
She was also a professional artist who specialised in miniature portraiture, examples of which Donald and his sister (Margaret Wilhelmina Woosnam nee Sprinck born 4/10/1902) still displayed in their Eastbourne homes.'
It is certainly true that Leon Sprinck was a distinguished portrait painter, as he painted many notable sitters, for example, Lady Dundas - twice, Viscount Castlerosse, Christian Beauvoir de Lisle etc. but he was in the UK from 1898, although we cannot find him in the Census of 1901, as his wife was staying with her parents with Donald on that day.
He was in the UK in 1911, the next Census year, and they were living at 19 Friern Park, North Finchley. In the 1939 Register, which has just been released, Emily was living with their daughter Margaret Woosnam, her husband, and their youngest son Hugh Leon Sprinck (born 16/9/1904) at 4 Hilltop Court, Grange Road, Croydon.
Leon doesn't appear is this Register for some reason, but he died in Croydon in 1948 at the age of 86. Margaret died the following year.

PASTEL WATERCOLOUR & GOUACHE OF A YOUNG TAWNY OWL PERCHED ON A BRANCH
A beautiful example of a young Tawny Owl,which has been superbly hand painted in a medium of pastel watercolour and gouache,being similar to watercolour,but a little thicker stronger colouring.

QUALITY
This painting has been executed in great detail and is a very life like representation of the hunting bird,captured in its typical habitat and finished in colours which add realism and depth to the image.
This example must have taken some hours to paint and has a professional finish,hard to capture with the brush.

FRAME
The frame is the original and has been finished with a cream border over a deep red thin border and has been fully glazed to protect the artist work

The Tawny Owl or Brown Owl (Strix aluco) is a stocky, medium-sized owl commonly found in woodlands across much of Eurasia. Its underparts are pale with dark streaks, and the upperparts are either brown or grey. Several of the eleven recognised subspecies have both variants. The nest is typically in a tree hole where it can protect its eggs and young against potential predators. This owl is non-migratory and highly territorial. Many young birds starve if they cannot find a vacant territory once parental care ceases.

This nocturnal bird of prey hunts mainly rodents, usually by dropping from a perch to seize its prey, which it swallows whole; in more urban areas its diet includes a higher proportion of birds. Vision and hearing adaptations and silent flight aid its night hunting. The Tawny is capable of catching smaller owls, but is itself vulnerable to the Eagle Owl or Northern Goshawk.

Although many people believe this owl has exceptional night vision, its retina is no more sensitive than a human's. Rather, it is its asymmetrically placed ears that are key to its hunting because they give the Tawny Owl excellent directional hearing.

GEORGIAN PASTEL WATERCOLOUR & GOUACHE 19TH CENTURY PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG LADY WEARING PERIOD DRESS & HOLDING FEATHERED HAT 30 X 35 INCHES
A truely amazing Georgian Portrait all hand painted in Pastel,Watercolour and Gouache medium on fine linen canvas,depicting a beautiful young girl wearing a typical period blue dress,seen holding her black feathered hat in hand.

The photogenic nature and quality achieved by the artist is spectacular,with fine attention to detail and accurately presented with good depth and strong colour.

The lower foreground delivering the depth and three diamentional perspective,which is so often difficult to achieve.

The young girl is depicted wearing a tiny looking pair of leather boots,usually hand made and sewn.

The frame is a good example from the period and has been carefully regilded in a gold leaf colour.

The painting has been placed under glass to protect from any smudges occuring and thus has maintained this example in its orignal and overall excellent condition.

A very eyecatching painting very rarely seen in this medium on such a large scale and yet as sharp and vibrant as when first produced,and perfectly captures the moment in time of bygone days.

Measurements Including Frame
Height 35 Inches
Width: 30 Inches

DATE:

We date this stunning portrait around Circa 1830-1840 latest,and as it is unsigned,cannot attribute it to a particular artist,although the standard is of a professional studio.

We think this is one of the best pastels we have ever seen and had to think hard and twice about selling what is a real museum piece worth viewing.

WW1 PASTEL & GOUACHE PORTRAIT ON CANVAS OF OFFICER IN THE RIFLES BRIGADE
This is a wonderful pastel portrait presented on canvas and under glass,showing head and shoulders depicting a Captain in The Rifle Brigade. We have identified his regiment from the cap badge.

The Rifle Brigade raised 28 battlions during WWI and saw action on the Western Front and Italy, winning 52 battle honours including 10 Victoria Crosses and numerous other decorations.
