Woman Sewing, by Georges Saint Lanne (1848-1929). Oil on Canvas

This interior scene is reminiscent of the works of XVIIth century Flemish painters, depicting an intricate display of richly patterned textiles, highlighted by the glow of the northern light onto the brass urn, the brilliant colors of the flowing textiles, as well as the delicate profile of the sitter who is immersed in her work. The scene is intimate and minutely observed, from the tiny thimble on the table to the spool of thread, reflecting a work rich in composition and harmonious in color. The inclusion of Turkish fabrics of intricate design animates this highly intimate view of a classic interior. Initialed lower left. Framed in carved wooden French frame with floral design.

Commentary

"Georges Saint Lanne received an academic training as a student of Eugene Delacroix, and studied under Diaz de la Pena at the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Bordeaux. He excelled as a colorist, and learned from his masters the importance of emotional content within a composition. Saint Lanne started exhibiting his work at the Paris salons in 1878, and excelled in marine, still life, portraiture and genre painting. He mastered watercolor, gouache, pastel, pen and ink as well as lithography.
His works were exhibited in Bordeaux, Lyon, Pau, Perigueux and Paris.
