A mixed-method engraving , 661 x 913mm. 26 x 36". Uncut. Mint.
Antonio Ciseri (1821-1891) was a Swiss painter of religious subjects. He was born in Ronco sopra Ascona in the canton of Ticino in Switzerland. In 1833 he moved with his father to Florence, where in 1834 he was to the Accademia di Belle Arti, training under the auspices Niccola Benvenuti. In 1849, he began offering instruction to young painters, and eventually ran a private art school. Among his earliest students was Silvestro Lega. Ciseri's religious paintings are Raphaelesque in their compositional outlines and their polished surfaces, but are nearly photographic in effect. He fulfilled many important commissions from churches in Italy and Switzerland. Ciseri also painted a significant number of portraits. He died in Florence on March 8, 1891.

Engraving after the painting by Frederick Goodall (1822-1904). Goodall was taught by his artist father, Edward, and first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1838. After painting landscapes and rural scenes early in his career, a trip to Egypt in 1858-9 led to a change in direction. Thereafter Goodall painted mainly scenes from Egyptian life with Biblical associations. Goodall was elected RA in 1864 and enjoyed great popularity during this time, but his fortunes later declined greatly and in 1902 he was declared bankrupt.

'Little Fatima' has an added interest because of its Orientalism. Leighton first showed an Oriental subject, a `Reminiscence of Algiers' at the Society of British Artists in 1858. Ten years later, in 1868, he made a journey to Egypt and in the autumn of 1873 he worked in Damascus where he made many studies and where he probably gained the inspiration for the present work.

“And Jephthah made a vow unto the LORD: ‘If you give the Ammonites into my hands, whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites will be the LORD’s, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.’ Then Jephthah went over to fight the Ammonites, and the LORD gave them into his hands. He devastated twenty towns … When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who should come out to meet him but his daughter, dancing to the sound of tambourines! She was an only child. Except for her he had neither son nor daughter. When he saw her, he tore his clothes and cried, ‘Oh! My daughter! You have made me miserable and wretched, because I have made a vow to the LORD that I cannot break.’ ‘My father,’ she replied, ‘you have given your word to the LORD. Do to me just as you promised, now that the LORD has avenged you of your enemies, the Ammonites” (Judges 11:30-36, NIV).

[J.E. Millais A.R.A.] 1858
Etching on india with very large margins, platemark 180 x 130mm (7 x 5"). Uncut sheet; foxing to margins.
Early etching by Pre-Raphaeilite painter John Everett Millais (1829-96). From 'Passages from the Poems of Thomas Hood, illustrated by the Junior Etching Club' (1858). The print illustrates the often-anthologised poem of the same name by Hood (1799-1845), specifically the fourth stanza: 'And her hat with shady brim,/ Made her tressy forehead dim;-/ Thus she stood amid the stooks/ Praising God with sweetest looks'. This print was made during the six years Millais and his wife Effie spent living in Scotland. Effie had annulled her marriage to the critic (and Millais' former mentor) John Ruskin in order to marry the artist, and to escape the bitterness and gossip surrounding their controversial marriage they lived in Perth. This period saw a change in Millais' art as he moved away from the close observation of his Pre-Raphaelite period to produce works more concerned with evoking an overall mood.
