This lovely copy of Le leçon de tricot (known also as Special Moment and Knitting Lesson) after
Emile Munier (1840-1895) dates from the late 19th to early 20th century. Signed "E. MUNIER" in lower right corner. Canvas measures 19 1/8" by 25 1/4" and frame measures 24.75" by 30.75" by 3". Giltwood and gesso frame is old and likely from the period of the painting. Canvas is in good condition. Painting craquelure is consistent with age. There are a couple very small (<1/8") craquelure losses near the pocket of the boy's right leg. There are no identifying marks on the rear. This painting was purchased in the 1980s by Roni Steinberg Sokoloff and resided in the home on her former 63 acre estate in Bedford New York, known as Cantitoe Farms. (This estate is down the road from Martha Stewart's estate of the same name.) The painting is being sold exclusively here on behalf of Ms. Sokoloff.
Additional images gladly forwarded upon request.
The largest known version of Le Leçon de Tricot was painted by Munier in 1874 and measures 33" by 45". It was just recently sold at auction on 9/21/07 by Galerie Koller of Zurich Switzerland in lot 3156 for 300,000 Francs ($255,000).
