Note: A student of William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Francois-Edouard Picot, Leon Jean Basile Perrault honed his artistic skills at the Académie des Beaux-Arts and Académie Julien in Paris. While well-regarded for his military, religious and allegorical paintings, he is most celebrated for his genre scenes of beautiful children such as the one offered in the lot presented here. The young girl sits atop a stone ledge, on her lap are three kittens, and to her side is the mother cat tending to her brood. In rendering the figure of the girl, Perrault utilizes a classic triangular composition to capture an idealized vision of a peasant child in the countryside, popular in Salon paintings of France during the time period. His subject is dressed in simple clothes and barefoot, although has the flawless skin and coral necklace of a wealthier class. She bears a knowing smile while gazing directly at the viewer, the end result a touchingly intimate portrayal of simple French country life.

136. Charles Emile Jacque (French, 1813-1894), "Basse-Cour", oil on canvas, signed lower right, "J.L.

Provenance: The American Art Galleries, NY, Feb. 7, 1918, lot 28; Du Mouchelle Art Galleries Co., Detroit MI.
Note: Charles Emile Jacque first began engraving in the military, making maps for the French army. He continued this occupation as a civilian, creating both prints and paintings. Moving from Paris to Barbizon in the late 1840s, Jacque painted in the naturalistic style popular with his contemporaries, depicting pastoral landscapes, farm scenes, and haystacks. Particularly known for his pleasing depictions of animals, Jacque’s works were well-received within the artistic community, earning medals at the Paris Salon, and he became a Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur in 1867.
The work offered here exhibits Jacque’s traditional Barbizon coloring, favoring rustic and earthy brown and red tones, and a naturalistic rendering of the chickens. The title, “Basse-Cour,” is a term for an inner area of the barnyard used to house small animals, and the painting provides a quaint and endearing view of farm life in the French countryside.

Note: Jemima Harpur, daughter of Sir John Harper, 4th Baronet, of Calke Abbey in Derbyshire, and his wife Catherine Crewe, was born in the early 18th century. In 1735, Jemima married Sir Thomas Palmer and became Lady Palmer of East Carlton Hall. Her husband was the 4th Baronet, of Carlton, and a member of Parliament from 1754-1765.
A painting of a very young Jemima Harpur by David d'Agar from 1724 is conserved in the collection of Calke Abbey. A mezzotint after that portrait was created by John Faber, Jr. and several versions exist in various locations, including the Calke Abbey Collection and the National Portrait Gallery in London. The painting offered here depicts Jemima perhaps closer to the date of her marriage. The background, styling of the sitter and treatment of the highlights on the silk dress, as well as the gentle pose and gaze, recall the best of the Rococo portraitists such as Thomas Gainsborough and Joshua Reynolds.

192. American Late Classical Carved Mahogany Sofa Table, c. 1840, labeled J. & J.W. Meeks, Makers #14 Vesey St. New York, molded drop-leaf top, frieze drawer with fitted interior, shaped supports, arched legs, pierced stretcher, casters, h. 29 1/2 in., w. (closed) 35 in., (open) 53 in., d. 23 in. $1500/2500
Note: The rare table offered here is a distinctive form made by the New York firm of J. & J.W. Meeks, indicative of the transitional period in which it was made. The table primarily exhibits the Grecian style of the late American Classical period and has an overall form similar to a Meeks sofa table in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago (acc. 1970.37). Interestingly, the table in the present lot features a Gothicized stretcher—a prevalent style seen on Meeks furniture throughout the 1840s. This admixture of styles can also be seen on a Meeks bookcase in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (acc. 67.262.1).

193. Jean-Joseph Vaudechamp (French, 1790-1866), "Portrait de Femme", 1827, oil on canvas, signed and dated upper right, 29 in. x 23 1/2 in., framed. $7000/10000
Ill.: Rudolph, William Keyse. Jean-Joseph Vaudechamp (1790-1864) in France and Louisiana. Bryn Mawr College Doctor of Philosophy Thesis, 2003, p. 407.
Note: Jean Joseph Vaudechamp rarely painted nudes, with only two known to exist today. In the portrait of a young woman offered here, he comes close by revealing an expansive décolletage behind a sheer shift dress cinched at the waist. The draped shawl, gently falling off of the woman’s shoulders, adds to the allure of the portrait, which exhibits no jewelry but a highly fashionable Apollo knot hairstyle.
The painting in its original form most likely included the young woman’s nipples visible through the sheer fabric. An attempt at censorship in a previous conservation appears at some point over the past decades to have overtaken Vaudechamp’s original intent in creating a study of the female torso under sheer fabric. Nonetheless, one is compelled to appreciate the sensitive and delicate handling of the brushwork on the skin, hair, and fabric throughout the portrait, which exemplifies Vaudechamp’s impeccable technique.
