Few people outside the art world are familiar with the name Marie Stillman (British, 1844-1927), yet she was a cherished member of the Pre- Raphaelite circle as friend, model and painter. Only a handful of Stillman’s works are known.
However, after more than half a century in the same private collection, The Last Sight of Fiammetta has now emerged to the market. Painted in 1876, it will be offered in the 19th Century and British Impressionist Art sale in London on September 21 estimated at £70,000-100,000.
The painting depicts the central character in Giovanni Boccaccio’s mid- 14th century romantic novel Elegia di Madonna Fiammetta. It was inspired by a sonnet, also entitled The Last Sight of Fiammetta, translated from Boccaccio by Stillman’s friend Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
The sitter is almost certainly Stillman’s stepdaughter, Lisa, who would have been around 13 at the time. The work was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1876 and at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1878 – the year Rossetti decided to create his own version, using Stillman as his model.
