Lot 336


After Frédéric Bazille, 
French 1841-1870- 

Young woman with peonies; 

oil on canvas, signed and dated 'Bruce Graham Clarke [?] apres E. Bazille. '89.' (lower left), 45.5 x 53.4 cm. 

Private Collection, UK. 

The present work is a copy after Bazille's painting which is housed in the collection of the Fabre Museum in Montpellier [18.1.3], whilst another, very similar, version is held by the National Gallery of Art in Washington [1983.1.6]. Bazille painted both of these paintings in the summer of 1870, just months before the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War, in which Bazille was killed. His depiction of peonies, and the style in which he paints them, has been understood as a nod towards his close friend Édouard Manet (1832-1883), who cultivated peonies, using them for a series of still life compositions in 1864-65.
