#5WomenArtists – Pauline Vallayer-Moutet

In a 1950 letter to London based art dealer Paul Wengraf, from whom she often purchased artworks, Mrs. Cummer decribes where she has hung some of her paintings:

“In my library are some of my dearest things […] On the right of this picture [1] is a painting of a French interior by Pauline Vallayer-Moutet.[2] This is a canvas of almost the exact size of the Morland. [3] The subject portrays two maids polishing the brasses, as only the French can do, and the strong light from a window, such as Vermeer would use in his pictures, streams into the room. And this, by the way, was my first investment in painting (the Paul King picture having been earlier acquired as a gift), and was purchased about 1905, nearly fifty years ago.”

Firmly nestled in one of Jacksonville’s esteemed boroughs, Springfield, all things are stirring around the house. Springfield is the home of Porchfest, a new mural, and soon two new breweries; it’s redeveloping. The neighborhood feels different, and Anthony Aiuppy, Thony to those who know him best, loves this area.

Our beautiful painting by Marie-Victoire Lemoine, Youth with an Embroidered Vest, has embarked on a national journey! It is currently part of a fascinating exhibition presented at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, in Winter Park, Florida. The Black Figure in the European Imaginary (January 20 through May 15, 2017), explores “the manner in which the visual arts of Europe imagined black people during the long nineteenth century (c. 1750 — 1914)”.
