"L'Ecole des Armes", Paint on Paper, France c.1880


"L'Ecole des Armes", paint on paper, France c.1880. This large hand painted scene is taken from an image in Domenico Angelo's instruction book on the Art of Fencing published in 1763 and demonstrates a particular stance used when dueling an opponent. The work retains its original solid oak frame and glass and was installed in L'Ecole Militaire in Montpelier, France for use as an instructional guide. The vibrant colours and grand scale of the duelists are quite visually striking while the rippled effect from the old adhesive used to fix the paper to the backing board adds a unique quality.
