Product Description

"Woman Playing the Violin, Seen from the Front" Louis de Carmontelle French 1758–59 Metropolitan Museum of Art Bequest of Mrs. Charles Wrightsman, 2019 Musicians figure prominently in Carmontelle’s portrait drawings throughout his career and, with their implication of movement, provide some of his more lively subjects. Although he would depict the young Mozart, for the most part his subjects were aristocratic amateurs. In cultured households, such performances were a favored form of entertainment. The Wrightsman pair of drawings, showing a standing woman playing the violin seen in three-quarter view and from the back, is unusual in that their mounts bear neither inscription nor date. They can, however, be compared stylistically to an early group of drawings Carmontelle made when he was employed as a tutor in the household of the duc de Chevreuse. Many of these are dated in or around 1758 and share the high horizon line, blank background, and patterned floor of the Wrightsman pair. In general, watercolor is added more sparingly in the early drawings, allowing the red and black chalk to predominate. Moreover, Carmontelle’s preference for profile portraits had not yet become entrenched and one sees a number of three-quarter views. The Portrait of Madame de Montainville Playing the Guitar (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), Madamoiselle Grimperel Playing the Viola da Gamba, and Madamoiselle de la Perrière Holding a Fan (sold Christie’s, New York, January 13, 1993, lots 92-93) are all shown in three-quarter view. The second sheet of the Wrightsman pair, the drawing of the same woman seen from behind, is a daring idea for a pendant and without parallel in Carmontelle’s published oeuvre.
