At Brave, we track down decorative antique and vintage art that’s hard to ignore - from characterful old portraits through to beautiful historic landscapes. There are just the two of us behind the scenes - Andy and Liv. Andy takes care of the buying and Liv looks after the presentation. We both believe that art has such an important role to play in all of our lives, yet the art world can often feel exclusive and closed off to many of us. So in our own small way we’re trying to bring you the experience of a top City gallery, while also helping to make art more accessible for everyone. If you have any questions at all, do get in touch as we're always happy to share our research and further details regarding provenance.

Description

An impressionistic bust-length portrait of a young man in a dark green outfit by listed Swiss artist, Édouard John Mentha (1858-1915). For this fine little painting, Mentha appears to have worked quite quickly and used daubs of oils to create texture in places. The subject’s left eye is little more than a few rapid brush-marks.

Édouard John Mentha trained with the landscape painter, Barthélemy Menn and he’s known to have worked in Nice, France. He’s primarily known for creating genre scenes involving regular people carrying out everyday activities, and several of his larger works have sold at Sotheby’s for in excess of £7’000.

Artist’s auction highlight: £13,500 achieved at Sotheby’s, UK, in 1994 for ‘La repasseuse’.
