NORBERT GOENEUTTE, Paris 1854 – Auvers-sur-Oise 1894. Au Coin du Feu. Original lithograph 1894. This print is for sale.

NORBERT GOENEUTTE
Paris 1854 – Auvers-sur-Oise 1894

A student at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in the early 1870’s, Goeneutte, though he did not exhibit with them, was a friend of the Impressionists and influenced by their approach.

Marcellin Desboutin taught him the techniques of etching in the mid-1870’s. Goeneutte was a founder member of the Sociètè des paintres-graveurs français. In 1891 Dr Gachet, an avid supporter of art and himself an amateur artist, recommended Goeneute should move to the countryside for his health and found him a house near his own in Auvers-sur-Oise, the village where Daubigny also had a house. Goeneutte died there only three years later, aged only forty.

YOSHIJIRO URUSHIBARA
Shiba, Tokyo 1889 – 1953 Tokyo

Urushibara came to London in 1910, on behalf of his employer, the firm of the Shimbi Shoin, to demonstrate Japanese woodblock printing at the Japan-British Exhibition held that year at White City, Shepherds Bush, May-October.

He went on to work at the British Museum first to reproduce a famous Chinese hand scroll and in restoring and mounting prints. At the B.M. he became friendly with Lawrence Binyon and got to know several British artists, Clausen, Brangwyn &co, collaborating with them, interpreting their paintings into colour woodcuts. He also made his own original prints.

Urushibara remained in London till 1940, when he and his family were forced to leave and return to Japan.

EDMUND BLAMPIED R.E., Ville Brée, Jersey 1886 – 1966 St Aubin, Jersey. The Tumble. Original drypoint, 1921. This print is for sale.

EDMUND BLAMPIED R.E.
Ville Brée, Jersey 1886 – 1966 St Aubin, Jersey

Blampied grew up in rural Jersey, the son of a farmer, and did not visit a town until he was fifteen, when he attended his first art lessons in St Helier.

A couple of years later, in 1903, he left the island to train at Lambeth School of Art. Though London was his home for many years, particularly those when he was active as an etcher, much of Blampied’s inspiration was drawn from his memories of Jersey, especially of working horses, a favourite theme, which he handled with a complete mastery.

His spontaneity lent itself to capturing and expressing the least movement, excellently demonstrated in The Tumble, a rare image from the world of the race horse.

CRISPIN DE PASSE the Elder, Arnemuiden 1589 – 1637 Utrecht. Euterpe– Muse of Music and Lyric Poetry. Engraving, c1600. This print is for sale.

CRISPIN DE PASSE the Elder
Arnemuiden 1589 – 1637 Utrecht

After his move to Cologne for religious reasons de Passe set up as an independent engraver and publisher. As they grew up, his three sons and daughter all joined him and were trained in the family business, before moving to other parts of Europe, including briefly England, developing an international business.

Amongst his output of decorative cycles was a series of ‘portraits’ of each of The Nine Muses, the goddesses of creative inspiration in poetry, song and other arts, which de Passe published about 1600. Several of them show the principal female figure in a classical landscape playing or accompanied by musical instruments, as in that offered here. Obviously why this print was chosen as a gift for a musician, the conductor Sir Colin Davis.

Euterpe– Muse of Music and Lyric Poetry
Hollstein 408
125 mm diameter
Engraving, c1600.
Plate number 6 of the series of nine Muses.
The plate signed with de Passe’s name and ‘address’.
A fine impression, trimmed to a roundel, close to the borderlines and laid down.
Script verso.

£750

Ex collection Sir Colin Davis (A gift to him from the Orchestra of the Von Müller Gymnasium, Regensburg, 1989) Terpsichore plays the flute, while in the distant landscape Hermes plays his pipe to lull Argos to sleep.

The surrounding ‘motto’ refers to the sweet harmony of the reed pipe and to Pythian verse. The quadrennial Pythian Games at Delphi, as well as athletics, comprised musical contests – singing to the lyre, and cithara and flute playing.
