Re: mm2170

Forgot to put the nude icon on the thread. Maybe a moderator can add that?

Re: mm2170

I thought this would have been found by now. Here's the large image in case some of you aren't clicking on the thumbnail.

Re: mm2170

The artist of this mm studied with Charles Gleyre and Jean-Léon Gérôme in the 1850s. The artist won a second place price in the Prix de Rome in 1861.

The mm is probably the most popular painting by this artist, and was exhibited at the Solon in 1873.

Re: mm2170

In this photo you can see a larger version of the second sample I posted by this artist as it looked when hanging at the Paris Salon of 1864.



I couldn't find a photo of the mm in situ at the salon.

Re: mm2170

Well, it's a relief to know that even in the 1860's artists revisited their compositions - check the wind-blown cloak of the lyre player

Re: mm2170

Thank you for finally solving this one. I was starting to be afraid there were no replies for so long because nobody liked it.

I think it's actually a different painting and larger version of the same composition.
