French Village Scene, Paul Louis Salvan (1877-1962) Beautiful Impressionist Oil Painting

Paul Louis Salvan (1877-1962), French

Oil on Canvas, Size 27cm x 35cm

Offering an early Paul Louis Salvan painting.  He’s a listed French painter and well sought by collectors.  Definitely late 19th century and an early work for the artist.  Impressionistic in painting style and of rural France, which was a favourite of many artists from the period.  The colours are brilliant and the style is fairly loose, with a fine grasp of scale and composition.

The painting is in fantastic condition, with no cracks or surface wear.  The colours are bright and the painting is clean.  The framing is likely original.  The rear of the stretcher has the dimensions, 35cm x27cm and an anchor emblem stamped into the top stretcher.  The frame does show typical wear to the gilt and black paint.

Overall a fine little painting from a known French artist.  A very nice piece!

Offered at $1100.- SOLD

Oil Painting of a Gentleman | Large 19th Century Victorian Portrait

19TH Century Portrait of a Gentleman
By Florence A. Ross (1870-1949)
RHA (Royal Hibernian Academy)
Framed 30″x36″(canvas approximately 23 1/2″x 29 1/4″)
Oil on Canvas
Large Portrait
SOLD
Offering a large oil painting of a Victorian gentleman. The painting is of Irish origin and was painted by a very skilled artist. The details are incredibly well executed and the use of shadows, light and proportions make the portrait exceptionally lifelike. The portrait is almost full scale, hence the painting is fairly large. It’s surrounded by a fine looking vintage frame, with a strong wire on the back.
The letters RHA appear before the artists signature.  RHA is a Dublin based institution, founded in 1823.  The institution was originally chartered by 30 Irish artists to promote the arts.  Florence A. Ross had attended the RHA.
The painting has some distress and repairs to the skin on the forehead and cheek. There are two small torn areas on the left side and some very small areas of missing paint. The canvas is tightly stretched and well secured. I can imagine the portrait rested above a fireplace for many years, which explains the missing paint.

Jupiterlicht Stage Cinema Spotlight, 1920’s Berlin

JUPITERLICHT

MADE IN GERMANY

A very rare early German cinema/stage light, which has been rewired with a period fabric cord.  Would be a very stylish decorative living room piece.  The wiring can handle up to 500 watts, but for domestic use, such as using it next to a sofa, 40-100 watts would be sufficient.  It currently has a 40 watt bulb fitted, which I find ideal to read under.

The construction is very solid, with many pieces made of a light alloy and a cast iron base.  The height adjustable handle is made of ebonized bakelite.  The original glass and internal reflector are in exceptional condition.  The wiring had been redone for domestic use, with an on/off switch attached to the cord and a new period style plug.  The fixture and base have been repainted.  At a point in it’s life, someone hand-painted the light housing, so it had to be sanded, in order to achieve a smooth finish.  The light has some dings, as expected of a period item, which evidently got lots of use.

During the 1920s, Berlin was one of the worlds premier film, cabaret and arts centres.  The classic movie, Metropolis was filmed during this period.  Jupiterlicht must have been the most advanced and desired lighting during the era.

There are very few surviving Jupiterlicht lights from this period, none of which seem to be for sale.  It’s also highly unusual to see one, which had been made for the North American market.  Truly a rare piece!

Offered at $1595.- SOLD

The item will ship in two boxes by UPS.  It must be insured for the full sale amount.  Please be in contact for shipping and handling charges.
