Saint Privé
927 x 638 • 497 KB
Attributed to H.J. Harpignies. Signed (but the signature could be apocryphal); titled and dated on the back. The place, St Privé a little french village where lived Harpignies (and where he died), the subject (a kind of moor) and the style make the attribution highly credible. Unfortuately this beautiful watercolor has been damaged (mainly the sky) and needs a restoration.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
