Vintage Print of a Study for the Iliad by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres 14 x 18

$50.00

Vintage print of a study for a female representation of the Iliad by French neo-classical painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780 – 1867) for his 1827 painting “The Apotheosis of Homer,” a symmetrical composition depicting Homer being crowned by a winged figure personifying Victory or the Universe.  Forty-four additional figures pay homage to the poet in a kind of classical confession of faith.  At his feet sit personifications of Iliad and Odyssey.  The original of this painting measures over 12′ x 16′ and resides at the Louvre.  (If Homer’s The Iliad and The Odyssey are epic poems, this is an “epic” painting!)  The print offered here is a copy of one of more than 100 surviving drawings and sketches Ingres painted in advance of creating his masterpiece.  It’s a photographic print measuring 14″ x 18″ and it comes loosely inside a textured paper folder with window.  Printed on the bottom left: “INGRES – Study for the Iliad, T. Edward Hanley Collection [St. Bonaventure University, Saint Bonaventure, NY],” and on the right: “Published by Shorewood Publishers, Inc., Distributed by Penn Prints, New York.”  The original has since passed from the Hanley Collection and has resided at The Met since 1971.  We estimate the print dates from the 1960s.  Excellent preowned vintage condition; ready for framing.

    Wonderful experience, meticulous packaging!

    I purchased two items from this shop. They arrived surprisingly quickly, and it was evident that extreme care was taken to ensure they arrived safely. I greatly appreciate the attention and extra care when packaging up the items. How sad it would be to purchase an antique that has survived multiple generations, only to be destroyed by USPS! Thank you so much for a wonderful shopping experience!
