I. LORSER FEITELSON (1898–1978)
“Diana at the Bath”, 1922, oil on canvas, 98-1/2" x 69-3/8" Framed by Gill & Lagodich for the Brooklyn Museum. Custom-made variation of c. 1930s American Modernist painting frame, wide reverse wave profile, water gilded and patinated palladium leaf on wood. Molding Width: 3-3/8” "Like many 1920s figure painters, Lorser Feitelson attempted to interpret the ideal, or perfected, human form in a distinctly modern way. In this mythological subject, he based the exuberantly contoured figures and complex, dance-like composition on the style of sixteenth-century Italian Mannerism and its nineteenth-century French heir, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. Working in Paris, Feitelson no doubt was aware that Picasso had already moved in this classical direction, creating beautifully outlined figures inspired by classical sculpture and Renaissance painting. Although the painting’s chalky, fresco-like colors also refer to Renaissance art, the figures are lithe, athletic, and unmistakably modern. By the time he presented this painting to the Museum in 1924, Feitelson lived on Prospect Place in Brooklyn." — Brooklyn Museum, permanent collection label.
