ORIGINAL FIONA SAUNDERS'19TH CENTURY FRENCH HIGH HEEL TASSEL SHOE' PAINTING DONE FOR BOMBAY COMPANY. This is a wonderful original piece. I was lucky enough to recently acquire a collection of these wonderful original paintings by English artist Fiona Saunders. Saunders is British artist who graduated from the Royal College of Art and was commissioned by Stephanie Hoppen Gallery to create this series of 19th Century shoes.
I dont know if as a result of this show or as planned with this show, the Bombay Company recreated the paintings in a series of prints. They were also recreated as Limoges trinket boxes. I have searched and searched and been unable to find any other original paintings like this. This is one of my favorites of the entire bunch. A stunning painting of a high heeled shoe with elaborate tassel.Gouache and watercolor on paper with sight size measuring about 12 x 13 1/4 inches. This one has the artist's initials and date on the very bottom of the heel. There might be some consistent toning to the paper but not sure. Very minor rippling to the paper. Original hand gessoed gold leaf lined mattes and beaded molding frame as they were presented for the exhibition. Mattes show some crackling but really a stunning presentation of these scarce original paintings. Frame measures 19 1/4 x 21 inches. I have a couple others that are also available.
