Trinity House Paintings Celebrates Inaugural Year in New York
In celebration of Trinity House Paintings’ inaugural year in New York, an exceptional array of Impressionist and Modern Art will be on display from the 15th October to 17th November 2012, at Trinity House Paintings. Works by Monet, Renoir, Van Dongen and Degas will represent the coveted talents of the period, with rare works on show and prices ranging from £20,000 to £1,500,000. At the International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Fair (Stand 67) 19th – 25th October 2012, Trinity House Paintings will show works by Hassam, Sisley and Valtat, each of which contributed fundamentally to the diverse styles of painterly innovation present at this time.
Of special interest at the exhibition is the Sidaner painting ‘La Table – Harmonie Grise’ (1927). Sidaner’s (1862-1939) paintings explore the impressionist love of colour, while his subject matter draws upon symbolist ideals. Perhaps best described as a post impressionist, he infuses the diverse practices of impressionism, symbolism and divisionism existing in France at the end of the 19th century.
Encapsulating the diverse artistic doctrines of the impressionist and modern period, Trinity House Paintings will show the work of Fauvist Louis Valtat, American Impressionist Childe Hassam and one of the very earliest of French Impressionists, Alfred Sisley at the Haughton Fair this fall.
Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) was one of the first artists to create what we now describe as impressionism. In the exhibition he is represented by “Cabanes au bord du Loing”, painted in 1896.
The most important American Impressionist, Childe Hassam (1859-1935) renowned for his views over New York and Boston, painted in the landmark impressionist style. Popular with American collectors since the turn of the 20th century, Hassam studied in France and brought the style into acclaim in America. His piece “Banks of the Seine”, painted in 1888 will be on show to represent his time in Paris; hugely influential in his style development.
In contrast to the impressionist works on show, Louis Valtat’s (1869-1952) pictures reveal the vigorous colours that characterise the fauvist movement. A friend of Paul Signac and Auguste Renoir, Valtat was recognised by impressionist critics at the time, but is now considered a founder of ‘Les Fauves’ (or ‘the Wild Beasts’). This differentiated group, including Gauguin and Matisse, took on new treatments of colour, incorporating block colours of wild attribution and also adopting symbolist ideas of subjective perception.
At both the exhibition and the fair stand the exhibited works will prove a special opportunity for collectors and connoisseurs to view and purchase work from a landmark period in the history of art.
