  • The stone pine, with the botanical name Pinus pinea, is also called the Italian stone pine, umbrella pine and parasol pine. It is a tree from the pine family (Pinaceae). The tree is native to the Mediterranean region, occurring in Southern Europe, Israel, Lebanon and Syria. It is also naturalised in North Africa, the Canary Islands, South Africa and New South Wales. Stone pines have been used and cultivated for their edible pine nuts since prehistoric times. They are widespread in horticultural cultivation as ornamental trees, planted in gardens and parks around the world. This watercolour is probably a scene in the South of France.

  • Provenance
  • Exhibited
  • Literature
  • Dimensions of base: 22 by 11 by 1in. In 1834 sixteen-year old John Henry Foley left his native Dublin for London, following in the footsteps of his elder brother Edward, already established at the sculpture workshop of the celebrated Mr Behnes. He enrolled in the school of the Royal Academy and quickly won a studentship for ten years with The Death of Abel. This piece and Innocence were exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1839 to great acclaim and Foley's talent was recognised by the influential Art Journal. The following year Ino and Bacchus was exhibited, to even greater acclaim. In both subject matter and style it is a neo-classical piece. That is to say it imitates the art of ancient Greece and Rome. The infant Bacchus lies on his back, smiling, reaching for the bunch of grapes dangled above him by the bare-breasted Ino who lies, smiling, at his side and leans over him. Ino and Bacchus marked a turning point in the career of the twenty-two year old from Montgomery Street, Dublin (Now Foley Street, just north of Talbot Street.) and launched him upon a career-path that led to the heart of Victorian society and major commissions for projects across the imperial globe from Galway to Calcutta. A plaster-cast of the model can be found in the permanent collection of the Royal Dublin Society. For an extended note on this lot see www.whytes.ie [ANTIQUE], [SCULPTURE]
