Product Description

An unusual ink and charcoal drawing of a stricken man with his hands to his chest, by Jean Marchand (1883-1940).

Jean Hippolyte Marchand was a French cubist painter and draughtsman. He was born in Paris and studied at the College of Fine Arts from 1902 to 1906.

His work would feature in two significant London exhibitions of 1910 and 1912. Organised by the art critic Roger Fry, the exhibitions were held at the Carfax Gallery and sought to introduce post-Impressionism to a British Audience.

Virginia Woolf attended the first and described its legacy in the following terms: "On or about December 1910 human character changed.” Whether the post-Impressionists could change the human character in 1910 is a point for debate, but Marchand’s work certainly influenced the Bloomsbury Circle that Woolf was a part of. Unlike them, his career was disrupted by his service in the First World War.

He had his first one-man show at the Carfax gallery in 1919. In the introductory notes, the critic Clive Bell said of him that 'no living painter is more purely concerned with the creation of form, with the emotional significance of shapes and colours than Marchand. ... He wants to create significant form, and all means to that end he finds good.' The exhibition was favourably received: his work would exert an influence on the artistic ideas of the Bloomsbury Group; and in the collector, Samuel Courtauld, he found a willing and noteworthy patron.

The drawing bears the faded inkstamp “Atelier| Jean| Marchand” in the bottom right corner. The stamp was used after contents of Marchand’s workshop were sold in 1940
