ABOUT THIS FAIR:

A rare and important painting by a French artist whose work foreshadowed the French impressionists will be a major attraction when it goes on sale at The Pavilions of Harrogate Decorative, Antiques & Art Fair at the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, 2th – 4th November 2018.

Titled ‘Moonlight’, pictured above is by Henri Joseph Harpignies (1819-1916) and depicts a lake surrounded by tress, probably in the south of France. Painted in black and grey ink, it is atmospheric and typical of the artist’s work. Harpignies was a key member of the Barbizon School, the group of artists that began the artistic journey towards the Impressionists. The Barbizon School is the name given to a community of mid-19th-century painters who worked in and around the village of Barbizon in the forest of Fontainebleau, south-east of Paris. They painted landscapes and scenes of rural life, occasionally working in the open air. They took their lead from the Suffolk artist John Constable, who was painting from life landscapes and were important precursors of the Impressionists.

Harpignies was a respected artist who was awarded medals of excellence for his works at the Paris Salons of 1866, 1868, 1869, 1878, 1897 and finally the Grand Prix in 1900. In 1875, Harpignies was awarded the Cross of a Chevalier of the Legion d'Honneur; in 1883, a Cross d'Officier and finally, the Cross de Commandeur in 1901. Harpignies was also fine watercolourist and exhibited at the New Watercolour Society in London. Today his paintings can be seen in major French and English collections.
