  • Faringdon Collection - Portrait of An Unknown Gentleman
    Genoese by van Dyck The attribution to van Dyck is difficult to sustain and it would appear rather that it was the work of a talented follower painting not in the manner of the artist s Italian period but of his second Flemish one The date inscribed on the portrait may therefore be approximately correct no reliance can be placed on the signature which is certainly false This opinion is

  • Faringdon Collection - The Briar Rose Series: the Garden Court
    1987 almost immediately but seems not to have offered it to Graham Instead he began work on a set of three paintings on the same theme but on a slightly smaller scale approx 24in x 45 53in The result was the so called small Briar Rose series painted 1871 and 1873 which was bought by Graham and is now in the Museo de Arte Ponce in Puerto Rico An unfinished nude study for the figures in the first scene The Briar Wood is in the Walker Art Gallery Liverpool The other scenes treated were The Council Chamber and The Rose Bower The Burne Jones work record for 1872 notes 4 pictures of Sleeping Beauty painted in oil for Graham but no fourth scene ever appears to have been executed In 1871 Burne Jones also painted a small version of The Rose Bower for Murray Marks now in the Manchester City Art Gallery About 1873 Burne Jones began considering expanding the cycle on to canvases up to 100in long The new project was offered to Graham but he had to refuse it for lack of space The Burne Jones work record for 1874 and 1875 mentions work on this second series but Burne Jones does not seem to have taken it up in earnest again until 1884 According to Bell op cit pp 60 1 he started the first subject in the series The Briar Wood in June 1884 Shortly afterwards he wrote to Lady Leighton Warren asking her for a specimen of briar rose hoary thick as a wrist and with long horrible spikes on it Three feet would be enough By May 1885 it was sufficiently finished to show Agnew s Burne Jones dealers Although Graham was by this time a dying man he handled all the financial negotiations with Agnew s and on 30 June 1885 wrote to Burne Jones that the price had been settled at 15 000 Despite the successful conclusion of the negotiations Burne Jones seems to have been dissatisfied with what he produced and started again on fresh canvases Finishing the series to his satisfaction took from the autumn of 1885 to April 1890 In negotiating the sale to Agnew s Graham had noted Besides their artistic value I believe the Briar Rose pictures are likely to have a certain trade value for purposes of sensational exhibition which probably ought not to be overlooked Graham s forecast proved accurate for the set was exhibited at Agnew s galleries in Bond Street in 1890 with enormous success and subsequently shown in Liverpool and at Toynbee Hall Whitechapel They were then sold to Lord Faringdon who also owned such major Burne Jones s as The Days of Creation now in the Fogg Art Museum Cambridge Mass USA Burne Jones was invited to Buscot to see the pictures and proposed extending the frames of the original four canvases to accommodate two further small canvases and eight slips which with William Morris verses inscribed at the base of
