Antiques News & Fairs - London Art Week Winter - 3 - 10 December 2021  

Surrealist André Breton wrote in his 'L'Art magique' of 1957 that he counts François de Nomé (1593-c. 1640),
the painter from Lorraine sometimes known as Monsù Desiderio, among the "geniuses". Breton admired the
painter's "enigmatic aspect". The paintings of François de Nomé, who was active in Rome and Naples in the
first decades of the seventeenth century, were very soon considered "revolutionary" with respect to the art
of his contemporaries. The example presented by Galerie Canesso for LAW Digital depicts Agrippina
departing for Rome with the ashes of Germanicus, c. 1620, a large oil on canvas laid down on wood panel.

ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Bringing unknown or forgotten works and artists to public light is a significant aspect of the aims of a scholarly art dealer. Among the important discoveries and major artistic reassessments on show at London Art Week Winter, 3-10 December 2021, is an extremely rare and previously unpublished pen and black ink drawing by Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528).

Visit 40 museum-quality selling exhibitions by London’s leading fine art galleries and auction houses.

Special exhibitions cover diverse subjects spanning millennia:

  • Dürer and his time at Agnews features the newly-discovered drawing as centrepiece and includes
    the only copper engraving plate by Dürer known to exist, on loan from a German museum
  • Huguenot Refugee Art & Culture (at Koopman Rare Art)
  • Bloomsbury Life (at Philip Mould & Company)
  • Alberto Martini: Masks & Shadows at the Laocoon Gallery brings this illustrator and artist of late
    Italian decadentismo and symbolism, as well as the precursor of surrealism, back to life. (Works by
    Martini are also offered by Galleria Carlo Virgilio & C.)
  • Ethel Gabain (1883-1950), one of the few artists to support themselves from the sale of lithographs
    in the early 20th century (at Abbott & Holder)

 

Significant highlight works include:

  • The Shield of Achilles in silver-gilt by Rundell, Bridge & Rundell, a magnificent presentation piece
    nearly 1m in diameter made for the King of Hanover in 1823 (Koopman Rare Art)
  • a newly discovered oil sketch, a view of The Villa Borghese, Rome by Michel-Martin Drolling
    (1786-1851) for a painting now in the Rijksmuseum (with Charles Beddington Ltd)
  • a luminous, small-scale landscape by John Linnell (1792-1882) painted in the late 1820s (with Lowell
    Libson & Jonny Yarker Ltd)
  • a terracotta Head of an Angel by Antonio Giorgetti (doc. Rome 1657-1669), one of the great
    sculptors of the Roman Baroque, based on his commissioned sculpture for Ponte Sant’Angelo
    (1668-69), a project overseen by Bernini for Pope Clement IX
  • an Antarctic view painted by Dr Edward Wilson (1872-1912) during the doomed Scott expedition to
    the South Pole of 1910-12 (with Guy Peppiatt Fine Art)

Sladmore Gallery St. James’s present Into the Wild: A Selection of Animal Sculpture. Artists represented include Antoine-Louis Barye,

Antiques News & Fairs - London Art Week Winter - 3 - 10 December 2021

Koopman Rare Art joins LAW this Winter from their new gallery in Dover Street. They present an exhibition
focused on the work of Huguenot silver- and goldsmiths who settled across Europe from France in the 17th
and 18th centuries fleeing religious persecution. They brought with them a new language and sensibility
of design. The exhibition coincides with a new book published by the Victoria & Albert Museum on the subject,
‘Europe Divided: Huguenot Refugee Art & Culture’ by the highly regarded art historian Dr. Tessa Murdoch.
Centrepiece of the show is The Shield of Achilles (left), a magnificent example of work in silver-gilt
with the maker’s mark of Philip Rundell for Rundell, Bridge & Rundell, goldsmiths to the Prince Regent.
This highly important shield was made for The King of Hanover in 1823.

At Didier Aaron is this rare genre scene by portraitist François de Troy (1645-1730). This work, combining the
artist’s characteristic attention to details of clothing and household objects with a light, sketched treatment of the
interior setting, was recently identified in a photograph of George Hoentschel’s house and studio on Boulevard
Flandrin in Paris. It featured in the 2013 exhibition Salvaging the Past at the Bard Graduate Centre, New York.
Hoentschel was one of the most renowned interior decorators in Paris circa 1900. His impressive collection of
paintings, boiseries, tapestries, and sculpture, ranging from the middle ages to the late 18th century, was in large part
acquired by J. Pierpont Morgan in 1906 and was later donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, where it still is today.
