Product Description

SoldGreyThis artist signed, oil on panel, depicts a groom presenting his bride. It is a small but lovely and elegant painting, and is presented in a fine custom 22 karat gold leaf, contemporary, frame that we designed specifically for this piece.

Ludovici was a member of the British Academy of Painters, Sculptors and Engravers, and a member of the French school of painting. He is best known for his genre paintings. However, his oeuvre also consisted of landscapes and interiors. He studied under the tutelage of his father, Albert Ludovici (1820-1894), and was active and resided in both London and Paris where he exhibited among James Whistler’s circle. Ludovici was a colleague and close friend of Whistler, a fellow Society member, who is said to have influenced his art and his life.

Ludovici describes his love of coaching paintings and his painting of the Dickens Coaching Series (which were popular jigsaw puzzles in turn of the century England), in his book entitled, “An Artist’s Life in London and Paris”.

We are most grateful to the artist’s great granddaughter, Caroline Jones, for providing us with the photograph of Albert Ludovici Jr!
