1874 catalogue: (iR2,p121; iR1)

1874-87          Étienne Marcel prévôt des marchands[, émail
Eng.: Étienne Marcel  provost of merchants, enamel (a provost is someone to keep the order). Note: a work titled ‘Étienne Marcel’ was also exhibited at the Salon of 1872, no. 1102.

1874-88          dona Maria Pacheco, épouse de Don Juan de Padilla, chef de l’insurrection, qui avait pris le nom de Sainte Ligue des communes sous Charles-Quint, email,
Eng.: Dona Maria Pacheco, wife of Don Juan de Padilla, leader of the insurrection, who had taken the name of Holy League of Communes under Charles V. Note: a work with the title ‘Doña Maria Pacheco, épouse de don Juan de Padilla, chef de l’insurrection de la Sainte-Ligue‘ was exhibited at the Salon of 1872, no. 1103.

1874-89          Le Firmament, d’après Emile Lévy, émail
Eng.: the firmament, after Emile Lévy, enamel. Alfred Meyer exhibited a work with the same title at the Salon of 1870 (no.3871-1). Meyer was a pupil of Lévy (1826-90; see info; see pictures + more pictures). Meyer made several enamels of works of Lévy, see: S1864-2354; S1865-2659; 1868-3126; xx.

1874-90          Figure d’après Raphaël, émail
1874-91          Figure d’après Raphaël, émail
Eng.: Figures after Raphaël. Raphaël (1483-1520) was a famous Italian painter (see info; see images). At the Salon of 1869 Meyer exhibited ‘figures d’après Raphaël’ (no.2966), containing two enamels.  I assume these were the same as he exhibited separately under two numbers in 1874. Meyer more often made enamels of Raphaëls works: see S1864-2353; xx. He also made a portrait of Raphaël S1870-3816.

1874-91bis      Idylle, dessin
Meyer exhibited (partly simultaneously) an enamel with the same title at the Salon of 1874 (no.2372).
