  • Moonlit landscape looking over water with the light reflecting off it and mountains in the background Moonlit landscape looking over water with the light reflecting off it and mountains in the background
    Choultse loved creating scenes of the landscape, sky, moon and plants. He was a 'singer of nature' and undoubtedly worshipped the snow and water most of all. His artistic world is without people or animals. Like this piece, his preferred landscape is a winter view. Thanks to his lengthy trip to Europe during the uncertainty of the revolutionary years, his pieces frequently depict the Swiss Alps, southern France and northern Italy. He was called a "magician of light" because of an almost magic realism of his paintings. DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 20.0 x 23.8 ins / 50.8 x 60.5 cm SIGNATURE: Signed ‘Iw.

  • A woman sits on a rocky beach with her black dog by Vicente Palmaroli
    Vicente Palmaroli, born in 1834, was the son of painter and lithographer Gaetano Palmaroli, who was also his first tutor.

    Ricci was a Florentine artist, born in 1854, who typically painted anecdotal scenes of upper-class family life, with a particularly skilled hand for shimmering silks and satins.

    MEDIUM: Oil on canvas DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 73.7 x 106.7 cm/ 29 x 42 ins SIGNATURE: Signed and dated, with location Francesco Vinea (1845 - 1902) was an Italian painter recognised for his period costume genre subjects. He preferred dynamic, imaginative, and often witty depictions of dramas over more classical historical or landscape painting. The Dance is, as the name implies, a merry scene; a couple dances at its centre, encircled by jovial music players and characters drinking together. There are several curiosities about this composition - the dancer appears to be blindfolded, and a family of ducks strolls by as if part of a different narrative altogether. 6183

  • Joan Miró rejected the constraints of traditional painting, creating works “conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness,” as he once said. Widely considered one of the leading Surrealists, though never officially part of the group, Miró pioneered a wandering linear style of Automatism—a method of “random” drawing that attempted to express the inner workings of the human psyche. Miró used colour and form in a symbolic rather than literal manner, his intricate compositions combining abstract elements with recurring motifs like birds, eyes, and the moon. “I try to apply colours like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music,” he said.

Colour and light command Costantini’s works, and this piece is by no means an exception. Here we see how Costantini has captured the brilliant blue hues of Lake Geneva, which contrast perfectly with the bright white feathers of the swans in the foreground. The white of the swans is echoed in the snow topped mountains and clouds to the rear of the scene, adding a sense of harmony and balance to the composition. Costantini uses symmetry to emphasise this harmony, not only in the lake’s reflection, but also in the family of swans.
