"Nude with a Notebook" (#CRFA01200)

10% Buyer's Premium In Delcol`s hyperrealistically painted collages, surrealism meets pop art, Botticelli's  Venus meets Picasso's Minotaur, Whistler's Mother meets Walt Disney, and the Nude Woman meets the Man with the Hat. The metaphorical worlds of his characters unite various times and places, customs and taboos. In 1982 Delcol's longtime friend, Belgian surrealist, poet and author Louis Scutenaire, penned a book about the artist's works entitled “La chanson de Roland”. Scutenaire considers Delcol's works to be comparable with those of the great Belgian visionary René Magritte, about whom he has also written a biography. The author of Delcol's 2005 monograph “Roland Delcol: Ou l'objet de désir et de métaphore”, author, art historian and collector Axel Hinrich Murken, declared the artist one of the most original and remarkable representatives of hyperrealism and today's postmodern pluralism. Delcol's works lack names. Each of them carries the title “Sans paroles” ­- “Untitled”. The author himself explains this by referencing 20th century silent films, where we see all the action but must think up the explanations and connections on our own. “The viewer must create his own title for each work!” he explains. His works are also undated; he feels their date of completion is irrelevant. “Everything is contained in everything else, everything depends on everything else, the series of cause and effect is endless - but it contains stops and diversions,” says Delcol, expounding on the metaphysics of his work. “The first and most noticeable things are never the last or most definitive. My works lack references to time.” Sans paroles, sans temps. Read more

"Road to Reval" (#CRFA00967)

Although Hoffmann’s most known works are his tavern scenes and farmboy portraits, a large part of his painted works were grand landscape and seascape paintings and country-themed compositions. These bring together a very masterful realistic portrayal of a range of symbols (windmills, campfires, muddy paths, paupers vs. a train of market-goers, etc.) which were understood and close to the public. One such painting is “Road to Reval”, which is signed in Cyrillic. O. Hoffmann’s biographer A. Tõnisson, in his seminar thesis (Tartu University, 1936), dated the painting with the year 1876, which is when the artist began to achieve success in Düsseldorf. A. Tõnisson appraised the work very highly: “Of his 1876 works, one depicts market-goers going through a village. The primary emphasis is not placed on the people, but on describing every detail of the painted village. … This is certainly a masterpiece of depicting a typical situation. We can hardly find another painting prepared with such precision and consideration as this in O. Hoffmann’s works—down to the shiny layer of ice forming on the water in the ditch, the entire picture reflects the atmosphere of a frosty, foggy morning.”. The painting has definitely seen some art exhibitions in Russia at the end of the 19th century. Signature lower left: Оск.Гофманъ.fc. Condition: The work is done with oil paints on pre-coated factory-made canvas with a medium-tight weave, which is typical for the second half of the 19th century. The back side of the canvas is well-preserved; the surface is evenly acidic. The means of attachment to the subframe is in accordance with standard criteria, necessary for a painting to be stored in a museum. The subframe is professional and has the original cross-bar, which also speaks for the time of the work’s creation. The subframe is well-preserved. The surface of the painting is original and has not been restored. The entire surface is covered with an even craquelure that corresponds to the natural aging of the work since its creation. About 15 years ago the work was professionally conserved (the pigment layer has been bound and surface grime has been removed). With ultra-violet light one can clearly see that the surface of the painting was covered with an even coat of lacquer by the artist. The overall condition of the painting can be declared very good for a work of art dating from the end of the 19th century. Certificates of authenticity: V.A.Petrov.
