CHARLES EMILE JACQUE (FRENCH, 1813-1894) SHEEP IN THE STABLE"
In oil on panel, signed lower left Ch. Jacque; in period giltwood frame lining
Item # 806KHQ24P


In this fine interior scene, Charles Emile Jacque draws from a light source out of picture to create a soft glow throughout the barn where the sheep rest in the hay; their surroundings are far from pristine or nostalgic, each with somewhat dirty wool in a dusty interior.  A small chicken walks along the ground towards a darker corner. It is executed in oil on panel and is signed in his very distinctive script lower left “Ch. Jacque”.  It remains in exquisite original condition, having been cleaned in the last decade or so; it is housed in a period composition giltwood frame lining that would appear to be of the same age as the panel.

Literature:

  • Popular 19th Century Painting: A Dictionary of European Genre Painters, Hook & Poltimore, 1986, p. 237, 241, 257 (one of Jacque's works illustrated)
  • E. Benezit Dictionary of Artists Vol. VII, 2006, Gründ, p. 677-679 

Measurements:  17 W x 13 H x 7/8 D [frame]; 15 1/8 W x 11 H [panel]

Condition Report:
Excellent original condition; probably cleaned in the last decade.  Under UV showing minimal touch ups around the hay and beside the haunches of the resting sheep.  Frame lining with chipping and wear as expected.
