Dickinson’s 2019 TEFAF Maastricht stand will showcase a range of important works from Old Masters through to Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary pieces. The highlights feature an impressive and diverse group of female nudes, including Renoir’s monumental late Femme nue couchée (Gabrielle), a luminous 1903 depiction of one of the artist’s favourite models.
Alongside Femme nue couchée and a second, smaller Renoir nude, Jeune Fille Assise, Dickinson will exhibit one of Jean-Léon Gérôme’s late Turkish bathers, Les Baigneuses du Harem (1901); Picasso’s drawing of his sleeping lover Geneviève, La Pause (1951); and Paul Delvaux’s enigmatic Le Balcon (1948).
Among the Old Masters on offer are two new discoveries: a terracotta relief of the Penitent Magdalene by Andrea Brustolon, and Joseph Wright of Derby’s Portrait of Robert Sutton (1760). Further highlights include works by Pieter Brueghel II, Frans Francken II and Abraham Govaerts, and a view of The Redentore by Canaletto painted during his time in London.
In addition to the group of nudes, the 19th and 20th century rooms feature Gustave Courbet’s influential winter landscape Chasseur dans la Neige (c. 1864); several theatrical and radically modern figural paintings by Kees van Dongen, including the elegant portrait Plumes blanches (c. 1910-12); and Surrealist pieces including Joan Miró’s Group de Personnages, painted during the turbulent years of the Spanish Civil War (1938), as well as Joseph Cornell’s Blue Medici (c. 1954). These will be accompanied by significant works on paper by Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Paul Klee and Pablo Picasso; and two fine Modern British sculptures by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.
The Postwar period will be represented by Jean Dubuffet’s abstract Paysage Amoncelé (1968); as well as by Dubuffet’s gouache and collage piece Urbi et Orbi (1962).
