Chromasoul, 2019 by María Inés Aguirre

From 26 June to 02 July 2024

Chromasoul, 2019 by María Inés Aguirre

From 26 June to 02 July 2024

As an artwork, Chromasoul transforms the very identity of the piano as an instrument – an intricate mechanism through which hammers strike strings with absolute precision – into a metaphor for the pulsing rhythms of life. Though the work has a sophisticated range of cultural reference, especially to musical figures including the French composer Debussy and the Italian conductor Arturo Toscanini, Chromasoul is largely inspired by elemental subject-matter. The fall of sunlight, the transition from day to night, a beating heart, the ebb and flow of tide, and the ceaseless movement of waves on the sea are all formative to the work. The rhythmic music of all these sensations has been incorporated into the work. Though not represented literally, the rich chromaticism of the paintwork contains many subtle allusions to these natural phenomena.

This painted Concert Grand Steinway will be played by Danny Piers from the Julian Joseph Jazz Academy during Privileged Access Evening and Elmo Meath Baker on 27 June and 2 July.

For enquiries please contact Piano Nobile at stand 208.

VETTING AT THE TREASURE HOUSE FAIR

June 2024
Vetting is a sharing of knowledge, a collaboration between vetting committees and exhibitors. It is undertaken to give clarity and confidence to the visitor through the clear labelling of all works of art to confirm the exhibit as genuine and of the age it is stated to be; to confirm that research and due diligence has been carried out to include references to provenance; and to give reference to condition, restorations and alterations.

The vetting committee comprises specialists whose expertise has been gained through working in the art world whether as a dealer or gallerist, auctioneer, museum curator, academic, conservator or as an independent consultant. Not only are vetters present on vetting day, where they examine each work of art, but a wider pool of expertise supports through online virtual vetting.

Additionally, the Art Loss Register (www.artloss.com) check all exhibits at The Treasure House Fair against their database of more than 700,000 items that are subject to a claim. The ARL is the world’s largest privately managed dataset of stolen, missing and looted works of art, antiques and collectables. Its database includes items reported as lost or stolen, subject to a dispute or loan, or with other issues. Any object found to be subject to a claim is removed from the Fair.

The opinion of the Treasure House Fair Vetting Committee is given to the best of their knowledge based on the information provided and no member of the Vetting Committee, nor Treasure House Fair Ltd shall be liable for any direct or indirect loss.
