Secrets of a Royal Past Revealed

Recent conservation of Elisabeth Jerichau-Baumann's 1868 masterwork 'The Stocking-Mender' has uncovered four Royal Inventory stamps on the reverse of the stretcher and on the original frame, confirming a remarkable Royal Provenance.

It is highly unusual for an object to leave the Royal Collection, making this work a staggeringly rare example of a painting that had been in the hands and homes of the British Crown for almost a century.

The painting, which had been exhibited at the Berlin Academy of Art in 1868, was gifted to Queen Victoria for Christmas by her eldest daughter Vicky, the Crown Princess of Prussia, at Osborne House in December 1868. The painting was catalogued by Sir Arthur Durrant in his Osborne House Inventory of 1876, p.330, no.513, and was passed down within the Royal Family to King Edward VII, King George V, HRH Princess Christian, HRH Princess Helena Victoria & HRH Princess Marie Louise. After the death of HRH Princess Marie Louise, the work was sold at auction, and entered the public art market for the first time in a century.


For decades, the Royal Inventory stamps on the reverse of the stretcher and frame had been hidden underneath paper backing and auction labels, and have only just come to light once again.

On November 5, 2020, CADA became the first Canadian Association to join CINOA - The International Federation of Art & Antique Dealers. CINOA represents 32 of the worlds leading art and antiques dealers’ associations in 21 countries. These member associations account for over 5,000 of the world's most respected dealers who all share the principles of quality and integrity founded on a depth of specialist knowledge. A member of the public who buys from or sells to a member of CINOA has the confidence of knowing that the dealer subscribes to strict guidelines concerning the ethics of dealing and belongs to a recognized and respected national association that vets its members.

CINOA is committed to the broadening of knowledge within the world of art and antiques. The annual CINOA prize has supported the publication of many academic and art historical works and now promotes other fields of artistic endeavour such as exhibitions, conservation programmes and educational projects as well as rewarding museum curators and public figures who are judged to have most benefited the arts and the art market.

In an international market that is increasingly challenged by regulations, CINOA provides an international voice to promote the art market and encourage free trade in works of art. CINOA supports fair and open systems of cultural protection but believes that over regulation causes distortions and problems that can encourage illicit trading rather than preventing it.

The CINOA website gives access to full details of the federation, its member associations and its member dealers.
