NEWLY PUBLISHED
GUIDE TO 19th AND EARLY 20th CENTURY
EUROPEAN SCULPTURE

Shepherd Gallery is pleased to announce the publication of Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Century European Sculpture: A Handbook, serving to aid the viewer in assessing, evaluating and collecting these works of art. Included is a series of essays that clarify the aesthetic values germane to sculpture of the period, obscured by twentieth-century notions of “originality.” In addition, this 132-page, hardcover handbook lists casts in a variety of media that were accepted in official exhibitions throughout the nineteenth century. An index of European foundries has been significantly updated since it was last published by the Gallery in 1996.
Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Century European Sculpture: A Handbook is available for $35.00 (incl. tax), postpaid.
ISBN: 978-0-615-61026-9.

Shepherd & Derom hosts Margot Gordon and Crispian Riley-Smith, the organizers of Master Drawings New York. Amongst the highlights of their seventh joint exhibition are two gouaches on vellum by Jacob-Philipp Hackert (1737 - 1807). Commissioned by Hackert’s patron,Chevalier Jean- Louis- Antoine le Vaillant de Demaery, these works have been known previously only through prints and are rare examples reflecting the artist’s 1764 sojourn in Sweden. Also known only through prints until now is Faith (circa 1590), a recently discovered drawing by Flemish draughtsman Crispijn van de Passe I.

The exhibit features a selection of portrait studies of various periods, including A Young Man in Red Hat, attributed to Lorenzo Lotto by Bernard Berenson. Old Master drawings are represented by a primo pensiero of Virgin and Child with St. Jerome by Andrea Sacchi, an illum ination from the circle of Jean Poyet, a double - sided drawing by Tuscan goldsmith Giovanni Catesi, and a pen- and - ink study by Raphael. Amongst the twentieth century offerings is a fully - realized head study of a sensuous young woman by Gemito dated 1915 and, from mid -century, a Reuben Nakian study for a sculpture.

Shepherd & Derom hosts our sixth annual exhibition of Master Drawings in association with Margot Gordon and Crispian Riley-Smith. Recent acquisitions of Italian master works from the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries anchor the exhibition. Among the highlights is an important pen and ink drawing of Two Putti by Raphael. Also notable is Guercino’s Head of Saint Matthew, datable to the 1630s. From a private collection in the United Kingdom, this drawing is a recent addition to the oeuvre of Guercino. In addition, a brilliant pastel by Benedetto Luti, Head of a Young Apostle, is presented in its period frame. Also on view is a significant red chalk drawing by Girolamo Muziano, previously in the collection of Philip Pouncey. Among the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Dutch and Northern European drawings that have become a specialty of our past exhibitions is included an interior of Ribe Cathedral by Danish artist Heinrich Hansen (1821-1890), which is reminiscent of the Dutch Golden Age. Leonardo Cremonini, Conrad Marca-Relli and Guiseppe Penone are among the twentieth-century artists represented.

Through February 19 2011.
