  • The Bone Player

    1856

    William Sidney Mount (American, 1807–1868)

    Description

    William Sidney Mount’s The Bone Player combines elements of portraiture and genre painting, both fields for which he was well known. Born on Long Island, Mount apprenticed with his brother, a portrait and sign painter, and then studied at the National Academy of Design in New York; by 1856 he was well established as one of America’s leading artists. Mount painted The Bone Player after receiving a commission from the printers Goupil and Company for two pictures of African American musicians, to be lithographed for the European market. These became the last in a series of five life-size likenesses of musicians that Mount executed between 1849 and 1856.
    Scholars have differed over whether this image, painted just five years before the Civil War when tensions over slavery were high, is a typical nineteenth-century stereotyped depiction of an African American or a sensitive portrait of an individual. On the one hand, Mount titled the picture The Bone Player, indicating that it was his sitter’s musical skill, rather than his individual identity, that was the painting’s subject. The bones [1989.132a-d]—bars of ivory, wood, or bone clicked together—were an instrument associated with African American minstrels, a type recognizable to American and European audiences. Popular theories of evolution considered African Americans more intuitive than Caucasians and therefore more in touch with their natural musical talents. Mount knew that pictures of such African American types would sell: they appealed to Europeans because of their exoticism and to Americans because they were considered distinctly American. Moreover, Mount was not an abolitionist and so unlikely to challenge African American stereotypes.

    On the other hand, Mount carefully delineated his subject’s distinctive physical characteristics, such as his high cheekbones, white teeth, and neat mustache, treating him as an individual and not a type. Unlike the depictions of African Americans in contemporary genre painting, which often employed caricature, this sitter is life-size, making the viewer relate to him as a fellow human being. Mount himself played the violin and loved music. His personal interest in the subject may explain his portraits of musicians, the first of which depicts a Caucasian subject and thus does not involve African American stereotypes.

    In the end, the most convincing conclusion about this painting is that both interpretations have merit. Mount was walking a fine line between stereotyping and individualism, between genre painting and portraiture. His equivocation makes sense, for he executed the work when debate over slavery was intense. Whatever his political affiliations, Mount was primarily a painter trying to support himself through his art. In The Bone Player, he created a work that could be interpreted in different ways and thus appeal to buyers in both the North and the South, as well as abroad. Yet despite its ambiguity, the painting is still unprecedented in the humanity it affords its African American subject.

  • William Lock of Norbury (1732–1810)

    Sir Thomas Lawrence (English, 1769–1830 English)

    Description

    Lawrence was the leading English portraitist at the end of the eighteenth century, in the generation following that of Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough. This insightful characterization, painted when Lawrence was only twenty-one, exemplifies the artist's desire to make portraits with a "living, personal existence." According to tradition, the portrait was painted in a single sitting and, although unfinished (the hand is only sketched in), it pleased William Lock so much that he rewarded Lawrence with a payment higher than the agreed upon price.

  • Fray Hortensio Félix Paravicino

    1609

    El Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos) (Greek (active in Spain),...

    Description

    El Greco was born on Crete and trained in Italy before emigrating in his thirties to Spain. Best known for his intense and spiritual religious paintings, El Greco was also a perceptive and powerful portraitist. Paravicino, a close friend of the artist, was an important theologian, orator, and poet. Limiting the colors almost entirely to the black and white of the friar's habit, El Greco created a subtle and compelling image that emphasizes psychological rather than physical presence. The work was purchased in 1904 on the recommendation of John Singer Sargent, another great portraitist and an admirer of Spanish art.

    Hippolyte Delaroche (French, 1797–1856 French)

    Description

    Claude-Emmanuel-Joseph-Pierre Pastoret is depicted in the year he became Chancellor of France, the culmination of a brilliant forty-year career in public life. The sitter's pose is relaxed and his face thoughtful and unidealized, but his prestige and power are emphasized by the billowing, opulent robes of his office. Pastoret wears the insignia of a Grand Officer of the Order of Saint-Esprit around his neck and the Saint Andrew Cross and Legion of Honor medal on his lapel. Pastoret's son commissioned this portrait from his friend Delaroche, who was primarily a painter of highly detailed historical scenes.

  • Portrait of a man of intellect

    A.D. 275–325

    Description

    The head must have been fitted into a body wearing a tunic and wrapped in a mantle that came high up behind the figure's neck. Long beards were somewhat unfashionable in ruling circles, and the long beard here may well indicate that the man was a philosopher in the ancient Greek tradition. Athens was a center of philosophic education in late Antiquity as it had been throughout its history. The man's short haircut, which has military and athletic suggestions rare at the time, and the intense, emphatically outlined eyes give the head an exceptionally forceful presence.
    The nose and the right eye have been damaged. The hair and beard exhibit some abrasions and traces of a cement deposit. Otherwise, the surfaces are in good condition and have a light yellow patina.

    Scientific Analysis:

    University of South Florida Lab No. 8445: Isotope ratios - delta13C +2.3 / delta18O -7.3

    Attribution - Mt. Pentelikon near Athens. Justification - C and O isotopes, fine grain, pure white, said to be from Athens

  • Portrait head of a man with curly hair

    A.D. 69–79

    Description

    This portrait head is probably from a statue. Despite the damages, a lively sense of the sitter's pleasant yet shrewd personality comes through to us, the broad forehead with its wrinkles and curly hair, and the little chin set amid folds of flesh. The face and surrounding hair have caught the new Flavian restlessness in sculptural style; the back half of the head still manifests the flat, tightly curled hair of a Julio-Claudian court portrait. This portrait, then, is a creation of the decade when the Flavian styles of sculptural richness were being formed and first exploited.
    Nose, chin, and a piece at the side of the neck have been broken away or damaged. The ears have suffered in a similar fashion. The surfaces are worn and weathered, perhaps both in antiquity and in a recent setting. There are remains of a black deposit in the hair and pitting on the face.

    Scientific Analysis:
    Marble has been scientifically tested with X-Ray Diffraction and determined to be Dolomitic.
    Harvard Lab No. HI111: Isotope ratios - delta13C +3.58 / delta18O -3.09, Attribution - Thasos-Cape Vathy, Justification - Dolomitic by XRD.
