• This sketch depicts Ida Nettleship, who was the artist’s wife. Ida was an art student at the Slade School of art. Towards the end of her time at Slade she met Augustus John and they married in 1901. A portrait of Ida by John from around 1901, while she was in her first pregnancy, is held by the National Museum of Wales. The family moved to London in 1903, where John co-founded Chelsea Art School with William Orpen.  Later in 1903, Nettleship's life with John was complicated when Dorelia McNeill became John's model and mistress. From 1903 to 1907, the three lived together, first at Matching Green in Essex and from 1905 in Paris. Nettleship had three further sons with John in quick succession. During this period, Dorelia also had children with John, in 1905 and 1906. Given John's limited income and the growing family, Nettleship eventually gave up painting to take care of the children and the housework. Although she found this wearisome and considered leaving John, she did not live long enough to do so. She died of puerperal fever in Paris in 1907 after the birth of her fifth son, Henry.

  • Most of Blanche's works were done in Giverny (where the family home was based) from 1883 to 1897. Here she painted alongside Claude Monet and became Monet's assistant and pupil, often carrying his easel and his canvases on a wheel barrow. Monet enquired in 1884, when Blanche was 19, "Has Blanche been painting, and has she been making progress?" She painted landscapes with trees such as pines and poplars, and meadows along the Risle river. In the 1920s, she also painted on several occasions at Georges Clemenceau's property in Saint-Vincent-sur-Jard (Vendée department) in the west of France - paintings of the garden, house and the Atlantic Ocean. After Monet's death, she remained in Giverny and continued painting. DIMENSIONS: (unframed)54.1 x 81.5 cm/21.3 x 32.1 ins SIGNATURE: Signed lower left MEDIUM: Oil on canvas
  • Esquisse de Paysage

    by Pierre Auguste Renoir

    This spontaneous sketch depicts a town landscape. Though unfinished, it reveals how Renoir layered light tones over dark tones. For example, the front wall of the house on the left shows how white has been layered over an ochre base. This technique is also visible in the surrounding foliage, and lends the composition warmth. The haziness with which the scene has been depicted not only indicates the spontaneity of this sketch, but also shows how Renoir carefully considered the mixing of colours.
