Lot Essay

A Painter and designer of decorative arts (including tapestries), Jacques-Clément Wagrez was a pupil of Isidore Pils and Henri Lehman at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and particularly appreciated for his watercolors. His compositions often involved imagery and sets inspired by Renaissance Florence, as this work, which the artist presented at an exhibition in 1886 in Nantes, and later developed into a large painting, recently sold in these Rooms (Christie's, New York, 19 April 2005, lot 189).
