AUTOUR DE L'AUGE (c. 1868)

What a beautiful image! It helps to know that 'Autour de l'auge' translates as 'Around the trough'.

The location of the original work is quite unknown - to the webmaster at least - unless you feel that knowing that Count Castellani owned it in about 1884, helps any today! I was most grateful to find that the work had been made into a print, etched by Amand-Durand (1831-1905), whose name seems to be more prominent re the work than Albert Schenck, the original artist. (Amand-Durand is however a very famous etcher indeed & is particularly noted for his many Rembrandt etchings.) A copy of the 'Schenck' print is currently (in Jul. 2015) available for purchase at An image of the etching is available at that link, the etching being of approximately 12 cm x 23 cm in size & overall of 19 cm x 28 cm in size.

It would seem that a copy of the print used to be in the collection of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Apparently 15 x 24.6 cm. in size. It used to be possible to view it via this link but the print, in fact, seems no longer seems to be even in their collection - insert Schenck (but a portrait of the artist is available). I see that I retained an image of what they used to show.

Here is an image of the print. Truly a beauty! Enjoy!

I do not have the ability in French to understand completely what was available at a sale conducted at the Galerie Andre Fils, but it looked like the above print. Described as 'SCHENCK Aug. 1828-1901, Ec. Française, Eau Forte d'après, "Les Ânes" 15x25cm'. The earlier links no longer work so I have cut them - Sold for 32 EUR it would seem, but I cannot see exactly when, nor where. Now the word 'Ânes' means donkeys of course. But despite that, the image link used to confirm the title of the print as being 'Autour de L'Auge'.

More when I get more! Maybe YOU could provide new data or could provide a clue as to where new data about the above work (or indeed any other Schenck work) might be found. I would truly welcome your input.
