Why We Love This

A substantial and period mythological oil showing Paris, in Renaissance dress, carrying Helen onto a boat. A young sailor holds to the shore while the helmsman engages the viewer with a steady gaze. Painted by Rudolf Von Deutsch, (German, b.1835), a listed artist circa 1890. A bravura work that combines depth of psychological penetration with absolute mastery of light, anatomy and perspective. The painting was later engraved (see illustration) for a 1902 volume on Greek mythology. Unframed.

About McNaught Fine Art

A 1986 graduate of Christie's Fine Arts of London, I headed the fine art department of a West Coast auction house before opening my own gallery. Each painting I represent is selected with care. I believe fine art to be an integral part of life, illuminating both our vision and our values for our children. As time passes, our paintings become heirlooms, enriched with our shared memories. Many things come and go. Art abides. - Anthony McNaught
