  • Pair 18th C. Game Table of Antique side Chairs Hand Carved Wood Walnut Regence

    Height: 38"    Width: 22"    Depth: 19" outstanding Craftsmanship of wood carved Walnut French Regence Period, Game Table Chairs. The Régence ( Regency) was the period in French history between 1715 and 1723 when King Louis XV was considered a minor and the country was instead governed by Philippe II, Duke of Orléans (a nephew of Louis XIV of France) as prince regent.

    We have available TWO Pairs of these walnut chairs with flat backs richly carved with acanthus leaves, shells, crosspieces.

    They rest on curved legs, the front belt and the two sides are scrolled and sculpted.

    The upper crosspiece of the backrest have the same attention to details.

    Beautiful, rare, quality seats French Regency period work.

    In the arts, the style of the Régence is marked by early Rococo, characterised by the paintings of Antoine Watteau (1684–1721).

    Rococo developed first in the decorative arts and interior design. Louis XIV's succession brought a change in the court artists and general artistic fashion. By the end of the old king's reign, rich Baroque designs were giving way to lighter elements with more curves and natural patterns. These elements are obvious in the architectural designs of Nicolas Pineau. During the Régence, court life moved away from Versailles and this artistic change became well established, first in the royal palace and then throughout French high society. The delicacy and playfulness of Rococo designs is often seen as perfectly in tune with the excesses of Louis XV's regime.

    The period represented the height of Rococo development in France. The style had spread beyond architecture and furniture to painting and sculpture, exemplified by the works of Watteau and François Boucher. Rococo still maintained the Baroque taste for complex forms and intricate patterns, but by this point, it had begun to integrate a variety of diverse characteristics, including a taste for Oriental designs and asymmetric compositions.

    The death of Louis XIV loosed the bonds of restraint that had wearied the whole nation.  With this new sense of freedom, people sought intimate personal comforts and informality in their physical surroundings.

    This license so freely employed under the new regime gave rise to a feverish yearning for novelty.  Asymmetry in the arts reached a peak of expression never before seen and not to be revisited until over a hundred years later during the Art Nouveau period at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

    This age, with a new interest in comfort and functional convenience resonates with modern concerns today.  For these reasons, as well as others, the Regence and Louis XV periods are by far the most popular among collectors today

  • Life-size Two Large Bronze Statues Riace Warriors Style Erectheus & Eumolpos

     Height: 79"- 80"   Width: 28"  Depth: 19" - 18" 

     SOLD

     Life-size Two Large Bronze Statues Riace Warriors Style Erectheus & Eumolpos . The Original Riace Warriors Dating back to 460-430 BC were discovered on the Calabrian coast in the year 1972,after they’ve been restored now they sit at the museum of Reggio Calabria.

    It’s believed that when Rome conquered Greece, they stole most of the important artistic patrimoine and they transported them back to Rome.

    They have been as the warriors Tydeus and Amphiaraus. But the Very highly regarded historian and archaeologist Salvatore Setti identified them as Erectheus the son of Athena and Eumolpos the son of Poseidon.

    Over the years, we’ve seen small decorative cast statues made by foundries in Italy as “Bibelot”.

    The ones listed  have the approximate dimensions and details of the original Statues and by repute from the earlier casting, that’s why they have all of the right details and proportions. The casting would be around 1975-1985.

     

    HISTORY: The Riace Warriors (also referred to as the Riace bronzes or Bronzi di Riace) are two life-size Greek bronze statues of naked, bearded warriors. The statues were discovered by Stefano Mariottini in the Mediterranean Sea just off the coast of Riace Marina, Italy, on August 16, 1972. The statues are currently housed in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in the Italian city of Reggio Calabria. The statues are commonly referred to as “Statue A” and “Statue B” and were originally cast using the lost-wax technique.

    The Severe or Early Classical style describes the trends in Greek sculpture between c. 490 and 450 B.C.E. Artistically this stylistic phase represents a transition from the rather austere and static Archaic style of the sixth century B.C.E. to the more idealized Classical style. The Severe style is marked by an increased interest in the use of bronze as a medium as well as an increase in the characterization of the sculpture, among other features.

    The chronology of the Riace warriors has been a matter of scholarly contention since their discovery. In essence there are two schools of thought—one holds that the warriors are fifth century B.C.E. originals that were created between 460 and 420 B.C.E., while another holds that the statues were produced later and consciously imitate Early Classical sculpture. Those that support the earlier chronology argue that Statue A is the earlier of the two pieces. Those scholars also make a connection between the warriors and the workshops of famous ancient sculptors. For instance, some scholars suggest that the sculptor Myron crafted Statue A, while Alkamenes created Statue B. Additionally, those who support the earlier chronology point to the Severe Style as a clear indication of an Early Classical date for these two masterpieces.

     

    The art historian B. S. Ridgway presents a dissenting view, contending that the statues should not be assigned to the fifth century B.C.E., arguing instead that they were most likely produced together after 100 B.C.E. Ridgway feels that the statues indicate an interest in Early Classical iconography during the Hellenistic period.

     

    In terms of identifications, there has been speculation that the two statues represent Tydeus (Statue A) and Amphiaraus (Statue B), two warriors from Aeschylus’ tragic play, Seven Against Thebes (about Polyneices after the fall of his father, King Oedipus), and may have been part of a monumental sculptural composition. A group from Argos described by Pausanias (the Greek traveler and writer) is often cited in connection to this conjecture: “A little farther on is a sanctuary of the Seasons. On coming back from here you see statues of Polyneices, the son of Oedipus, and of all the chieftains who with him were killed in battle at the wall of Thebes

    During the reign of Jerome Bonaparte in Westphalia a French architect and pupil of Percier, Grandjean de Montigny, re-furnished the castle of Kassel and the Palace known as Wilhelmshöhe , then temporarily known as Napoleonshöhe. Some of the furniture for these magnificent rooms was commissioned from Jacob-Desmalter.

    Jacob-Desmalter was the son of Georges Jacob and was Christened François-Honoré-Georges Jacob-Desmalter (1770–1841). He took the name Desmalter from a family property. He received the best training possible in his father’s workshop, which he took over on his father’s retirement and ran until 1835.

    Queen consort Katharina of Württemberg ( Princess Friederike Katharina Sophie Dorothea) was Queen consort of Westphalia by marriage to Jérôme Bonaparte “Napoleon's younger brother” , who reigned as King of Westphalia between 1807 and 1813.

    Katharina was born in Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire, to the later King Frederick I of Württemberg and his first wife, Duchess Augusta of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. Her mother, who died when Katharina was five years old, was a sister of Caroline of Brunswick and a niece of King George III of the United Kingdom. After the death of Katharina's mother, her father married Charlotte, Princess Royal,  eldest daughter of George III and thus a first cousin of his first wife.

    In 1803, Württemberg entered into an alliance with France under Emperor Napoleon I, and one of the terms of the treaty was the marriage of Katharina with Jérôme Bonaparte, Napoleon's younger brother. The wedding was held four years later, on 22 August 1807, at the Royal Palace of Fontainebleau in France.

    Upon marriage, Katharina became Queen consort of the Kingdom of Westphalia. Reportedly, Katharina and Jérôme bonded strongly and had a happy marriage, remaining firmly attached to each other.

    When the kingdom of Westphalia was dissolved in 1813, she followed Jerome to France. During the war, she and Désirée Clary took refuge with Julie Clary at Mortefontaine, and when the allied troops took Paris, they took refuge in the home of Desirée Clary in the capital.

  • Rare Pair French Retour D'egypt Terracotta Lions Sculptures Statues Los Angeles
    Height: 24" Width: 44" Depth: 21" 

    Rare Pair French Retour D'egypt Terracotta Lions Sculptures Statues Los Angeles , Exceptional fine pair of Large French Retour D'egypt period terracotta lions, circa 1790-1810.

    The French Egyptian Revival style or the retour d'Egypte refers to style that makes use of the motifs and imagery of ancient Egypt. By the end of the 18th century enthusiasm for ancient Egypt generated by Napoleon's unsuccessful conquest of Egypt and, in Britain, to Admiral Nelson's defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of the Nile in 1798. Napoleon took a scientific expedition with him to Egypt and this was the first time a major study of ancient Egypt was done. Publication of the expedition's work, the description de l'Égypte, began in 1809 and came out in a series though 1826 influencing a new way of life in France thru architecture and decorative arts. However, works of art, decorative arts, furniture and, in the field of architecture and garden follies, funerary monuments in the Egyptian style had appeared in scattered European settings from the time of the Renaissance.

    The Egyptian Revival style came out in a few waves in France before Napoleon during the ancient Régime Egyptian motifs were mixed with the neoclassical-Louis XVI style in architecture, furniture and decorative arts. A big surge hit France around 1798 during Napoleons Egyptian expedition. This was the first major Egyptian Revival period as this was the first time in history that a major study on Egypt was done. French people became fascinated with the ancient Egyptian history, culture, architecture and furniture. Egyptian ornamentation like scarab beetles, sphinxes, winged lions and lotuses details were incorporated into Classical style furniture and decorative arts creating a style known as a hybrid neo-Egyptian.

    The next wave was during the height of the French Romantic period 1820s-1850s. The Egyptian Revival emerged as a result of the famous archaeological digs of the first half of the 19th century and was primarily used for Tomb memorials, temples, and cemeteries and some decorative arts. This style is distinguished by its adaptation of Egyptian forms and motifs, sphinxes guarding buildings including lotus blossoms, Pharaoh's heads, the winged disk symbol of the sun God, as well as the use of bold bright colors.

    At the end of the 19th century 1870s-1890s the Egyptian Revival styles were in vogue once more. At the Height of the Victorian period the Egyptian style was even more elaborate than before. Often incorporated with Neo-Greek & Renaissance Revival styles. Victorians were even more fascinated with these rare finds and incorporated their motifs into jewelry, furniture, glass and Art pottery. Heavily ornamented overstuffed furniture made its way into homes, by way of the parlor suite. armchairs with gilt pharaoh's heads and goat feet, elegant sofa's with palmiform columns and lotus blossoms filled the middle class homes of France. Other items were made and reflect the population's desire for the exotic. Clocks and mantel (fireplace) garnitures featuring sphinxes and other Egyptian motifs were popular made in onyx or ivory alabaster trimed in gilt bronze with two matching obelisks that would flank the clock that was crowned with a bronze sphinx. Baccarat manufactured several gilt bronze and crystal items such as jardinieres, desk items, vases and jewel caskets. By the late 19th century Egyptian Revival designs merged with the Art Nouveau style.

    During the late 18th century and early 19th century Egyptian motifs were applied to a wide variety of Decorative arts objects. Publication of Napoleon's expedition's work, the Description de l'Égypte, began in 1809 and came out in a series though 1826, inspiring everything form sofas with Sphinxes for legs to tea sets painted with the pyramids. It was the popularity of the style that was new.

    The most striking thing about the young man was his physical appearance. He was known for his great beauty, which was depicted numerous times by artists, often long after his death. The sculptures portray a young man with thick, curly hair and a full mouth. From his radiant countenance to his sculpted physique, Antinous personified the epitome of physical attractiveness and became an eternal symbol of timeless beauty. Based on the existing busts and other artistic portrayals, Antinous physical appearance was sometimes taken as a clue that the young man was not solely of Greek ancestry.

    Hadrian seems to have favored men as sexual and romantic partners, and Antinous was his most famous favorite. Historians today agree that there was a sexual component to their relationship, a fact that was well-known in Roman times. Antinous was not the first male companion that Hadrian took in his life, and this sort of relationship was socially acceptable then.

    Some of the busts that exist and were the reason studies such as our piece was made after, here are the Four : 1- Part of a statue of Antinous depicted as Apollo, 130-138 AD, from the Via dei Fori Imperiali Rome Centrale Montemartini, Rome.  2- Bust of Antinous, 130-138 AD, Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence Carole Raddato CC BY-SA.  3- Bust of Antinous, found at Hadrian’s Villa in 1790, Vatican Museums. 4- Portrait bust with head of Antinous. Found in Patras in 1856 along with bust no. 418. Dated a little after 130 AD. Inv. no. 417.

    Antinous, son of Eupeithes ,  Greek: c. 111 – c. 130  was a young Greek man from Bithynia and a favorite and likely lover of the Roman emperor Hadrian. Following his death aged eighteen, Antinous was deified (made into a deity a God of the beauty ) on Hadrian's order s, being worshipped in both the Greek East and Latin West, sometimes as a god and sometimes as a hero.

    Little is known of Antinous's life, although it is known that he was born in Claudio polis (present day Bolu, Turkey), in the Roman province of Bithynia. He was probably introduced to Hadrian in 123, before being taken to Italy for a higher education.

    He had become the favorite of Hadrian by 128, when he was taken on a tour of the Roman Empire as part a group of people accompanying Hadrian. Antinous accompanied Hadrian when he attended the yearly Eleusinian Mysteries religious rites in Athens, and was with him when he killed the Marousian lion in Libya, an event highly publicized by the Emperor. In October 130, as they were part of a flotilla (group of small warships) going along the Nile, Antinous died amid mysterious circumstances. A number of suggestions have been put forward for how he died, ranging from an accidental drowning to an intentional human sacrifice or suicide.

    After his death, Hadrian deified Antinous and founded an organized cult devoted to his worship that spread throughout the Roman Empire. Hadrian founded the city of Antinoöpolis close to Antinous's place of death, which became a cultic center for the worship of Osiris-Antinous. Hadrian also founded games in commemoration of Antinous to take place in both Antinoöpolis and Athens, with Antinous becoming a symbol of Hadrian's dreams of pan-Hellenism. The worship of Antinous proved to be one of the most enduring and popular of cults of deified humans in the Roman Empire, and events continued to be founded in his honor long after Hadrian's death. Antinous became a symbol of male homosexuality in Western culture, appearing in the work of Oscar Wilde and Fernando Pessoa.
