The Art History Mystery Challenge

Welcome to our totally disorganized art museum! The challenge is to help us identify all the masterworks in our virtual museum. We'll post a piece of the painting and one clue to get you started. Can you name the artist and the title of the painting?

Pieces of the painting and clues to the artist's identity will be added every 24 hours until we have a winner, then the next painting in our collection will be posted. Feel free to use any resources at your disposal to help in your search. Challenge winners will receive a shiny award badge that we will add below their profile image. You will retain this award until someone else wins the award.

The AHM Challenge is open to all forum members, not just ws oil painters, so join in and have some fun with us!

If you would like to host a AHM Challenge painting; please send a PM to the Challenge Moderator Callie to receive instructions and notice when to post your painting. Be prepared to check in frequently while hosting a challenge!



Clue=Nationality - English

BTW I found a way to select the artist and painting randomly so my own preferences don't influence the selection. I'll always begin the puzzle with the top right piece and sometimes it may be easy and sometimes if will be difficult. Smile

Richard Buckner from Ask.com:
(b Woolwich, 25 Oct 1812; d London, 12 Aug 1883). English
painter. He first worked from a studio at his family home in
Rumboldswhyke, near Chichester. After a short spell in the army, he
went to Rome where he studied under Giovanni Battista Canevari
(1789-1876). He set up a studio there and quickly earned a reputation
not only for his elegant portraits (e.g. Lady Charlotte Guest and her Daughter,
priv. col., see Stewart and Cutten, p. 36) but also for his delicate
watercolours of Italian peasants. His work attracted the attention of
important patrons including Queen Victoria and her husband Albert of
Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Prince Consort; Edward, Prince of Wales; Adelaide,
Duchess of Saxe-Meiningen ( fl 1860s), and William Alexander, 11th Duke of Hamilton.

This was a tough one! Even searching 19th cen.British/English artists born in 1812 didn't turn up his name. I trawled through gobs of portraits (British/English portraits, Portraits of Ladies, of women.... Nothing! Yet this looks familiar - when I saw the second puzzle piece I thought it was going to be easy Without the death date, I wouldn't have found this. Now I'm wondering where I've seen it? Maybe a poster catalogue....

Edited to add this-
From the Victoria and Albert Museum site:
Born Woolwich, London, 25 October 1812, son of an army officer, member
of a distinguished Chichester family. After a short time in the army,
he studied painting in Rome with the painter of miniatures, portraits
and copies of old masters G B Canevari. First painted miniatures, but
soon specialised in portraits, particularly of ladies of fashion
(winning great reputation and patronage), ballet dancers, and also
Italian subjects. Exhibited 77 portraits at the RA between 1842 and
1877, 32 Italian subjects at the BI 1850-65, 44 works (nearly all
portraits) at the SBA 1840-76/7, and three paintings at the Grosvenor
Gallery 1879; also exhibited in Rome. Lived at Cleveland Row, St
James's, from 1847 till his death 12 August 1883. A sale of his
collections, including his own works, was at Christie's 22-26 February
1873. Maas describes him as 'one of the best and most typical' painters
of his kind.

I can't believe, given how successful he was and how many portraits he did, that searching for portrait artists turned up nothing! Mr.Google must have been taking a nap

I wonder why this guy missed all the lists of Brit artists born in 1812
I can't believe all the portraits I trawled through - and this didn't come up anywhere! After Janet gave his death year I tried British Portrait Painter; 1812-1883, and the Ask . com listing came up.

He was one that I chose randomly... so sorry he was so elusive. I felt so bad after trying some of the clues as searches that I started a thread on resources for Art History which I included the Art Renewal Center because I knew he was their. Smile
