    DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 18.00 x 26.75 ins (45.72 x 67.95 cms) SIGNATURE: Signed 'Helleu' lower left MEDIUM: Chalk and pencil on paper In this elegant drawing, Paul César Helleu has rapidly drawn this stylishly attired woman using his signature loose gestural draughtmanship. This looseness and ease of depiction suggests that the work was finished in situ, rather than through a series of studies, which is how Helleu preferred to work. Although this drawing was clearly composed rapidly, Helleu has taken careful care in depicting the sitter’s fashionable furbelowed dress and  hat with jaunty feathers. Additionally, he has delicately rendered her up to date makeup and hairstyle by judicious application of colour.

  • Voiliers

    by Jean Dufy

    £48,000
    Voiliers is an incredibly expressive nautical scene by Jean Dufy who was known for his depictions of leisurely social activities of the French bourgeoisie. Dufy was strongly influenced by the musical figures that surrounded him, especially in Paris. The expressiveness of Voiliers, recalls the music that Dufy would have heard in the cafés of Paris- a culture Dufy was very much a part of. The strong vertical brushstrokes in Voiliers conveys the sense of movement associated with jazz and also recalls the fluid motion of waves. The title itself, ‘Voiliers’ refers to the specific type of boats depicted in this painting; the name of which is derived for the French word for sail or veil. The boats were previously mercantile ships but during Dufy’s lifestyle they were used as leisure boats, as seen by the graphic figures in the foreground.

  • La Maison Bleue aux Environs de Giverny

    by Blanche Hoschede-Monet

    £68,000
    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
  • Jeune Femme Blonde

    by Paul César Helleu

    £85,000
    DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 36.00 x 32.00 ins 91.44 x 81.28 cms SIGNATURE: Signed MEDIUM: Oil on canvas In this elegant portrait by Paul Cesar Helleu, a young woman stares softly at the viewer, lightly meeting their gaze. The gentleness of the portrait is reflected in the loose gestural draughtsmanship of Helleu. This looseness and ease of depiction suggests that the work was finished in situ, rather than through a series of studies, which is how Helleu preferred to work. The appearance of a chair in the lower right hand corner suggests an informal setting, and implies that the artist was well-acquainted with the sitter. A further softness is brought to the work by the use of chalk and by the harmony of three main colours; green, yellow and peach. Furthermore, the use of peach on the sitter’s blushing cheeks and lips combined with her bright blue eyes give her an angelic look.
