"Attrib. To William Rothenstein"
Attributed to William ROTHENSTEIN (1872-1945) Picardy Landscape 1938 An interesting landscape, painted from memory in 1938, inscribed verso and initialled by Sennelier of Paris. The painting was acquired in France as a William Rothenstein and a copy of the purchase invoice is available to the buyer. As the painting is only signed with initials, I am selling it as "attributed" to, rather than by. More research is required .. Rothenstein wrote a popular book entitled "Men and Memories" It seems likely that he also recorded memories in the form of visual images. It is known that a war artist during the First World War visited the Picardy region. He wrote: "The friendly cultivation of Picardy, to see farms and normal life of the fields again, was a solace to the spirit." Sir William Rothenstein was an English painter, printmaker, draftsman, lecturer, and writer on art. Emerging during the early 1890s, Rothenstein continued to make art right up to his death in the mid-1940s. Thinking of the subject of Jewish synagogues in London - he is perhaps best known for his work as a war artist in both world wars, his portraits, and his popular memoirs, written in the 1930s. More than two hundred of Rothenstein's portraits of famous people can be found in the National Portrait Gallery collection. The Tate Gallery also holds a large collection of his paintings, prints and drawings. Rothenstein served as Principal at the Royal College of Art from 1920 to 1935. He was knighted in 1931 for his services to art. Rothenstein left Bradford Grammar School at the age of sixteen to study at the Slade School of Art, London (1888-93), where he was taught by Alphonse Legros, and the Julianin Academy Paris (1889-1893), where he met and was James McNeill Whistler, Edgar Degas and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. While in Paris, he was also an Anglo-Australian artist Charles Conder, with whom he shared a studio in Montmartre.
