Medici Print Titled The Boy In Red After Oil Portrait Painting By Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun of Joseph François Pierre de Sahuget d’Amarzit d’Espagnac (1776-1820)
ORIGINAL MEDICI PRINT
Titled ' The Boy in Red ' After the original oil portrait painted in 1786 by French artist Madame Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun.
-
A SHORT HISTORY OF MEDICI
The Medici Society Ltd was founded in 1908 by Philip Lee Warner and Eustace Gurney. The company's original aim was to bring artists' work to the appreciation of a wider public through technically cutting edge high-end colour reproductions, with subjects chosen for their artistic value, beauty or sentiment sold "for the lowest price commercially possible".
-
The name Medici was chosen as a homage to the great Florentine family who did so much to encourage art in the Italian Renaissance. The profile of Lorenzo de' Medici (1449 - 1492), known as Lorenzo the Magnificent, was incorporated into the trade mark.
-
ABOUT ARTIST

ABOUT SITTER
Joseph François Pierre de Sahuget d’Amarzit d’Espagnac (1776-1820) was the only son of Joseph-François-Pierre-Charles d’Espagnac (1750-1817), a sub-lieutenant of the King’s household troops. The sitter emigrated in 1791 and died in Italy in 1820.
-
This portrait, which displays the bright colouring and monochrome background of Vigée Le Brun’s work in the 1780s, was listed by the artist among her portraits for 1786 in her autobiography. It was exhibited at the Paris Salon the following year. Like most of her portraits of individual children, it was closely modelled on her portraits of adults and did not explore her period's interest in the specific development of adolescents.

Either the painters name and address or
suppliers details.
-
This sought after example depicts The Madonna & Child with Saint Francis & Saint Jerome of Assisi.
-
Usually known as Correggio (Italian: was the foremost painter of the Parma school of the Italian Renaissance, who was responsible for some of the most vigorous and sensuous works of the 16th century. In his use of dynamic composition, illusionistic perspective and dramatic foreshortening, Correggio prefigured the Rococo art of the 18th century. He is considered a master of chiaroscuro.
-
BIOGRAPHY
Antonio Allegri was born in Correggio, Italy, a small town near Reggio Emilia. His date of birth is uncertain (around 1489). His father was a merchant.[citation needed] Otherwise little is known about Correggio's early life or training. It is, however, often assumed that he had his first artistic education from his father's brother, the painter Lorenzo Allegri.
-
In 1503–5 he was apprenticed to Francesco Bianchi Ferrara in Modena, where he probably became familiar with the classicism of artists like Lorenzo Costa and Francesco Francia, evidence of which can be found in his first works. After a trip to Mantua in 1506, he returned to Correggio, where he stayed until 1510. To this period is assigned the Adoration of the Child with St. Elizabeth and John, which shows clear influences from Costa and Mantegna. In 1514 he probably finished three tondos for the entrance of the church of Sant'Andrea in Mantua, and then returned to Correggio, where, as an independent and increasingly renowned artist, he signed a contract for the Madonna altarpiece in the local monastery of St. Francis.

Kathleen Winifred Molesworth Aged 3 ( b.1896-d.1973 ) Oil Portrait Painting
Portrait Oil Kathleen Winifred Molesworth Aged 3
-
I am delighted to offer for sale this charming oil portrait on canvas laid to board.
-
The portrait depicts an half length oil portrait of Kathleen Winifred Molesworth aged 3 years, according to the information hand written on the back, although the artist is unknown, may possibly have been painted by a close family member.
-
She is wearing a cream dress with smocking and puffed sleaves and has shoulder length fair hair with a fringe.
-
Kathleen Winifred Molesworth was born in Salem, Madras, India, on 15th June, 1896. the daughter of Surgeon Captain, later Colonel, William Molesworth and his wife Winifred Anne nee Weekes.
-
Her father was in the Indian Medical Service and achieved the letters MB, BS, MRCS, LRCP, CIE & CBE after his name.
The family are listed in Burke's Peerage. In common with many children of parents resident in India, Kathleen was sent to Britain to boarding school at Bayham House in Folkestone, where she was in 1911 at the age of 14.
-
On 18th October 1919 in Simla, Bengal, she married Alfred Alyson Fennal Michin, who was a Conservator in the Indian Forest Service.
She travelled between the UK and India frequently, as her eldest son Patrick Molesworth Minchin was born on 27th August 1920 in Madras, her younger son Henry Desmond Penkivel Minchin was born in Sussex in 1923.
-
Patrick was a Captain in the Indian Army in WWII, but lived until 2nd July 2007 and is buried in Edrom Church, Duns, Berwickshire, along with his mother, near to the family home Cruicksfield, which is now a B listed Scottish mansion with farm attached.
-
Henry Desmond Penkivel, known as Desmond, was a Lieutenant in the 6th Battalion King's Own Scottish Borders and was killed in action in WWII at Le Haut Du Bosq, Normandy on 1st July 1944.
-
He is buried in Bayeux War Cemetery. He and the 16 men who died with him in this action, are commemorated in a memorial window and plaque in Christ Church, Duns, presumably commissioned by his parents.

Kathleen outlived her husband, who died in 1973 aged 85, but by 1976, was living at Cruicksfield, Duns, the family seat, where she died on 17th March 1998 and was buried at Edrom Church, along with her father and eldest son. (Her eldest son had two sons, one of whom died before the age of 1 and the other died at 51 without issue, so Kathleen's line died out, so pehaps this is why her portrait came to the market.)

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sir Anthony van Dyck (Dutch born 22 March 1599 – 9 December 1641) was a Flemish Baroque artist who became the leading court painter in England, after enjoying great success in Italy and Flanders.
-
Antoon van Dyck (his Flemish name) was born to prosperous parents in Antwerp.
He was baptised on 23 March 1599 (as Anthonio).
-
His talent was evident very early, and he was studying painting with Hendrick van Balen by 1609, and became an independent painter around 1615, setting up a workshop with his even younger friend Jan Brueghel the Younger.By the age of fifteen he was already a highly accomplished artist, as his Self-portrait, 1613–14, shows.He was admitted to the Antwerp painters' Guild of Saint Luke as a free master by February 1618.Within a few years he was to be the chief assistant to the dominant master of Antwerp, and the whole of Northern Europe, Peter Paul Rubens, who made much use of sub-contracted artists as well as his own large workshop. His influence on the young artist was immense Rubens referred to the nineteen-year-old van Dyck as "the best of my pupils".
-
He is most famous for his portraits of Charles I of England and his family and court, painted with a relaxed elegance that was to be the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years.
-
He also painted biblical and mythological subjects, displayed outstanding facility as a draughtsman, and was an important innovator in watercolour and etching. The Van Dyke beard is named after him.
-
ABOUT THE SITTER
Cornelis van der Geest (1575 – 10 March 1638) was a spice merchant from Antwerp, who used his wealth to support the Antwerp artists and to establish his art collection. He was also the dean of the haberdashers guild.
-
Cornelis Van Der Geest is best known today for his art collection.
He was portrayed repeatedly by Anthony van Dyck, while Willem van Haecht, who he had hired as curator, painted his "constcammer" several times, including a view of the visit of Albert VII, Archduke of Austria and Isabella Clara Eugenia to his art collection.
-
He owned two paintings by Quentin Matsys, one of which, a Madonna, can be seen in the Van Haecht painting. Other works included in that view are Women at her toilet by Jan van Eyck, a still life by Frans Snyders, Ceres Mocked by Adam Elsheimer, Danaë by Van Haecht, Battle of the Amazons and a portrait by Peter Paul Rubens, Peasant Company with Woman making Pancakes by Pieter Aertsen, Apelles by Jan Wierix and a hunting scene by Jan Wildens. The painting also shows some of Van der Geest's sculptures, with copies of the Venus de' Medici, the Farnese Hercules, and the Apollo Belvedere.

NELSON'S EARLY LIFE
Horatio Nelson was born on 29 September 1758 in a rectory in Burnham Thorpe, Norfolk, England, the sixth of eleven children of the Reverend Edmund Nelson and his wife Catherine Suckling.He was named after his godfather Horatio Walpole (1723–1809) then 2nd Baron Walpole, of Wolterton.
-
Nelson attended Paston Grammar School, North Walsham, until he was 12 years old, and also attended King Edward VI’s Grammar School in Norwich. His naval career began on 1 January 1771, when he reported to the third-rate HMS Raisonnable as an ordinary seaman and coxswain under his maternal uncle, Captain Maurice Suckling, who commanded the vessel. Shortly after reporting aboard, Nelson was appointed a midshipman and began officer training. Early in his service, Nelson discovered that he suffered from seasickness, a chronic complaint that dogged him for the rest of his life.
-
HISTORICAL BATTLES
Nelson took part in the Battle of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where his attack was defeated and he was badly wounded, losing his right arm, and was forced to return to England to recuperate. The following year, he won a decisive victory over the French at the Battle of the Nile and remained in the Mediterranean to support the Kingdom of Naples against a French invasion. In 1801, he was dispatched to the Baltic and won another victory, this time over the Danes at the Battle of Copenhagen. He subsequently commanded the blockade of the French and Spanish fleets at Toulon and, after their escape, chased them to the West Indies and back but failed to bring them to battle. After a brief return to England, he took over the Cádiz blockade in 1805. On 21 October 1805, the Franco-Spanish fleet came out of port, and Nelson's fleet engaged them at the Battle of Trafalgar. The battle was Britain's greatest naval victory, but during the action, Nelson, aboard HMS Victory, was fatally wounded by a French sharpshooter. His body was brought back to England where he was accorded a state funeral.
-
Nelson's death at Trafalgar secured his position as one of Britain's most heroic figures.

Oliver Cromwell The Lord Protector Of England (1599-1658) After Sir Peter Lely Oil Portrait Painting
We are delighted to bring to the market a pleasing oil portrait on canvas estimated to be dated as late 18th Century and representing a depiction of Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658) after the original by Sir Peter Lely in c1657.

Sir Peter Lely (14 September 1618 – 30 November 1680) was a painter of Dutch origin whose career was nearly all spent in England, where he became the dominant portrait painter to the court.

The portrait has been presented in a nicely carved solid oak frame with a gilt slip to finish the presentation.

ABOUT OILIVER CROMWELL
Oliver Cromwell (25 April 1599 – 3 September 1658)[a] was an English military and political leader. He served as Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1653 until his death, acting simultaneously as head of state and head of government of the new republic.

Cromwell was born into the middle gentry to a family descended from the sister of King Henry VIII's minister Thomas Cromwell. Little is known of the first 40 years of his life, as only four of his personal letters survive along with a summary of a speech that he delivered in 1628.[1] He became an Independent Puritan after undergoing a religious conversion in the 1630s, taking a generally tolerant view towards the many Protestant sects of his period. He was an intensely religious man, a self-styled Puritan Moses, and he fervently believed that God was guiding his victories. He was elected Member of Parliament for Huntingdon in 1628 and for Cambridge in the Short (1640) and Long (1640–1649) Parliaments.

He entered the English Civil Wars on the side of the 'Roundheads' or Parliamentarians, nicknamed 'Old Ironsides'. He demonstrated his ability as a commander and was quickly promoted from leading a single cavalry troop to being one of the principal commanders of the New Model Army, playing an important role under General Sir Thomas Fairfax in the defeat of the Royalist ('Cavalier') 11th forces.

MILITARY ORDER OF ST.LOUIS
.
The Royal and Military Order of Saint Louis (French: Ordre Royal et Militaire de Saint-Louis) is a dynastic order of chivalry founded 5 April 1693 by King Louis XIV , named after Saint Louis (King Louis IX of France). It was intended as a reward for exceptional officers, notable as the first decoration that could be granted to non-nobles. By the authorities of the French Republic, it is considered a predecessor of the Legion of Honour, with which it shares the red ribbon (though the Legion of Honour is awarded to military personnel and civilians alike).
-
Although officially abolished by the government authorities of the July Revolution in 1830 following the French Revolution, its activities carried on as a dynastic order of the formerly sovereign royal family. As such, it is still recognised by the International Commission on Orders of Chivalry

Affordable Fine Art King Charles 1st (1600-1649) After Van Dyck Old Master 18thc Oil Portrait Paintings
We are delighted to offer for sale this fine 18th Century oil portrait on canvas which is an excellent version of one of Van Dyck’s finest portraits of Charles Ist and depicts him wearing the Order of the Garter on a blue silk ribbon with a gold locket attached.
-
SIR ANTHONY VAN DYCK (22 March 1599–9 Dec 1641) was a Flemish Baroque artist who became the leading court painter in England, after enjoying great success in Italy and Flanders. He is most famous for his portraits of Charles I of England and his family and court, painted with a relaxed elegance that was to be the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years.
-
These sought after portraits of van Dyck's works are difficult to date precisely,but copies were produced around the middle of the 17th - 18th Centuries particularly during the time of the English Civil War and the King's execution in 1649. They were much in demand as 'cabinet' pictures and passage portraits adorning the private walls of Royalist supporters. (The 'cabinet' in the 17th century was a small, intimate room in which were kept items important to the owner,and only their closest friends would be admitted).The larger passage Portrait would be hung in hallways and corridors.
-
One of the series of portraits after Van Dyck and Lely. By the reign of George III they were attributed to Theodore Russell (1624-88), nephew of Cornelius Johnson, but on stylistic grounds and format they are now attributed to Remigius van Leemput, believed to have been at one time an assistant in Van Dyck's studio.
-
Leemput's copy is now at Hampton Court. He was one of the purchasers at the sale of King Charles's collection, and among his purchases was the great picture of Charles I on horseback, by Van Dyck (now at Windsor), which was recovered from him with some difficulty at the Restoration.
-
ABOUT KING CHARLES 1ST
Charles I (19 November 1600 – 30 January 1649 was monarch of the three kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 27 March 1625 until his execution in 1649.
Charles was the second son of King James VI of Scotland, but after his father inherited the English throne in 1603, he moved to England, where he spent much of the rest of his life. He became heir apparent to the English, Irish and Scottish thrones on the death of his elder brother, Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales, in 1612. An unsuccessful and unpopular attempt to marry him to a Spanish Habsburg princess culminated in an eight-month visit to Spain in 1623 that demonstrated the futility of the marriage negotiations. Two years later he married the Bourbon princess Henrietta Maria of France instead.
