The panel attests to Netherlandish artists’ keen interest in pictorial illusionism and meticulous attention to detail, especially in the luminous jeweled, glass, and metallic objects, secular and ecclesiastic trade wares that are examples of the goldsmith's virtuosity. The main figure in this enigmatic painting was long identified as Saint Eligius (the patron saint of goldsmiths) due to the presence of a halo, which was recognized as a later addition and subsequently removed. The panel is likely a vocational painting, which portrays the profession of goldsmithing and perhaps a specific goldsmith. In 1449, the date of this painting, the duke commissioned from van Vlueten a gift for Mary of Guelders on the occasion of her marriage to James II, King of Scots. That couple may well be depicted in this painting, portrayed buying a wedding ring that is being weighed on a scale. The girdle that extends over the ledge of the shop into the viewer’s space is a further allusion to matrimony. The convex mirror, which links the pictorial space to the street outside, reflects two young men with a falcon (a symbol of pride and greed) and establishes a moral comparison between the imperfect world of the viewer and the world of virtue and balance depicted here. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🏛 Share our Wonderful Heritage 🏛 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 #art #europeanart #artists #artwork🎨 #flemish #selfpotrait #portraitpainting #flanders #vermeer #girlwithapearlearring #artiste #kunst #flemishart #rotterdam #flemishgiant #arthistory #holland #museum #hollanda #nederlands #netherlands #netherland #olanda #petruschristus #nederland #dutchart #dutch

  • A stunning cerulean shoreline sets the backdrop for the Conversion of Saint Paul by the Master of Female Half-Lengths, a painting evocative of Patinir’s humbling landscapes which sold at @lempertz_1845_art two days ago. Named after an alluring painting of half-length young ladies playing instruments in the Harrach collection in Austria, one inevitably associates the Master of Female Half-Lengths with images of beautifully dressed young women reading, writing or playing music. And indeed, the most expensive work sold in auction by the artist was an opulent bust-length picture of Mary Magdalene. Now thought to be a collective of painters as opposed to a singular artist, the workshop actively painted for the market in Antwerp, often creating multiple versions of popular compositions, which are still highly sought after today. Early 20th century connoisseurs like Friendländer may not have given this kind of enterprise enough recognition but the market popularity surely makes a case for their artistic merits, opening up the discussion about what originality and individuality means today. . . . #oldmasters #cerulean #antwerpcity #flemishart #netherlandishart #masteroffemalehalflength #conversionofstpaul #stpaul #renaissanceart #northernrenaissance #artmarket #originality #lazerbeam #worldview #devinelight

  • . BRUEGEL at Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna from October 2, 2018 to January 13, 2019. . 2019 sees the 450th anniversary of the death of Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c 1525/30 – 1569). To mark the occasion the @kunsthistorischesmuseumvienna dedicating the world’s first ever major monograph exhibition featuring Pieter Bruegel the Elder from October 2, 2018 to January 13, 2019. . Just over forty paintings by Bruegel’s own hand have been preserved to this day. The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna owns by far the largest collection, with twelve panels. This is due not least to the fact that, already in the 16th century, Habsburg collectors had recognised the exceptional quality and originality of Bruegel’s imagery and endeavoured to acquire his prestigious works. Bruegel’s popularity is also down to the stunning compositions themselves, which are often moralising and always teeming with characters, inviting the viewer to reflect on the multi-layered complexity of the image contents. . In museums and private collections, Bruegel’s works are rightly held to be among the most precious, but also the most fragile inventories. To date, the vast majority of the wooden panels have never been loaned for exhibition purposes. So once the collection at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is complemented by many paintings on loan from international museums and private collections, the overview of Bruegel’s entire oeuvre is set to be nothing short of sensational. .

  • Venus und Adonis by Peter Paul Rubens, c. 1635 Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577 – 1640) was born in Siegen, Nassau-Dillenburg, Holy Roman Empire. He was considered the most influential artist of Flemish Baroque tradition. His paintings often referenced aspects of classical and Christian history. The Baroque style he was well-known for, emphasized movement, color, and sensuality, Rubens specialized in making altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects. . The catalogue of his works by Michael Jaffé lists 1,403 pieces. . In addition to producing paintings popular with nobility and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically educated humanist scholar and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV of Spain and Charles I of England. . Ruben’s nudes of various biblical and mythological women are especially well-known. Painted in the Baroque tradition of depicting women as soft-bodied, passive, and highly sexualized beings, his nudes emphasize the concepts of fertility, desire, physical beauty, temptation, and virtue. Skillfully rendered, these paintings of nude women were undoubtedly created to appeal to his largely male audience of patrons. . Additionally, Rubens was quite fond of painting full-figured women, giving rise to terms like ‘Rubensian’ or 'Rubenesque’. . Rubenesque: adj: characteristic or reminiscent of the paintings of Rubens; voluptuous, plump and sensuous, in a pleasing or attractive way (referring to the figure of a woman). #arthistory

  • . Old Vs Moderns Masters , it’s happening in Monaco! . And it’s that time of the year again. Our traditional end of the year exhibition will open in our Monaco gallery as of 22 November ! . “Rencontre de maîtres” has become an annual event during which you have the opportunity to discover outstanding works from our collection. #Brueghel features in the exhibition with a Wedding Dance, a Village Street and an Autumn scene. With wintry weather in the air, we can also warm ourselves in front of the fire, just like these jolly peasants. As for #Bison, he brings to life the golden age of Venice with a selection of gouaches, while Abraham #Janssens celebrates the seasons with an astonishing series of four panels. The moderns are just as present with an imposing bronze by #Pomodoro and a sensitive work by #Schifano. And once again, #Fontana is in the spotlight alongside #Magritte. . MASTERS’ COLLECTION Preview 22 November 2018, from 18:00 Exhibition from 23 November 2018 to 4 January 2019 . 27 avenue Princesse Grace 98000 MONACO .

  • I love the portraits of #faceless women by the #polishartist #ewajuszkiewicz @rolandoanselmigalerie She focuses on reinterpreting classic, historic female portraits with the heads replaced by fungi, flowers, bugs, intricate draperies or other suprising - and sometimes disturbing - forms. Juskiewicz’s work has been described as #feminist appropriation art, as she reimagines classical portraiture, created by male artists and from a masculine point of view, and gives them a new life by detaching them from their original form and meanings. The influence of #flemishart is visible both in the colors and composition and in the technical mastery. Her deformed figures pose many questions about the human nature and culture. They contrast the traditional ideas of beauty and harmony, challenging the boundaries of our acceptance. #portraitpainting #portrait_vision #contemporaryart #contemporarypainting #feministart

In this painting, a young woman stands in the center of the composition, facing in profile an open window to the left and reading a letter. In the foreground is a table covered with the same Oriental rug encountered in the Woman Asleep. On it is the identical Delft plate with fruit. The window reflects the girl's features, while to the right the large green curtain forms a deceptive frame. She is precisely silhouetted against a bare wall that reflects the light and envelops her in its luminosity. This brilliant use of light and his perfect compositions may support speculation among art historians that Vermeer used a mechanical optical device, such as a double concave lens mounted in a camera obscura, to help him achieve realistic light patterns in his paintings. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🏛 Share our Wonderful Heritage 🏛 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 #art #europeanart #artists #artwork🎨 #flemish #selfpotrait #portraitpainting #flanders #vermeer #girlwithapearlearring #artiste #kunst #flemishart #rotterdam #flemishgiant #arthistory #holland #museum #hollanda #nederlands #netherlands #netherland #olanda #johannesvermeer #nederland #dutchart #dutch

  • . « Memory! 😉 1976, the first time I set foot in NY; I am there to attend the “Parke Bennet” Sale at Sotheby’s; the painting from the catalogue front cover excited me: agreat Marine evoking the port of Amsterdam by Adam Willaert, not the greatest Marine painter but this was his masterpiece!! I embarked for NY confident, but very quickly I must admit the table will exceed my means; my enthusiasm is unfortunately not enough, the lot will be awarded to Richard Green, with whom years later we will do so many things and our families will become friends. For now, I have two days left before my return ticket and I'm sorry! I then compulsively make my way to every Ny galleries, presenting myself. So the collaborator of the famous gallery of modern art Knoedler, the distinguished Eliane Ganz, tells me about a customer that wants to exchange a painting from a former Flemish seems it? He has just dropped it off! And she will look for it; beautiful copper of nice size and from my young opinion attributable to Jan Brueghel the young! -A What price level does he want to exchange? - 12000 dollars says Eliane. -I'll be happy to take it for 10000. The talent and confidence of Eliane allowed me to go proudly to Bxl with the piece! My first purchase in the United States, my first Brueghel! He will then appear in the first catalog of the gallery inaugurated in Brussels on December 6, 1976! And today I find him in a good place at Highlights of Drouot in a showcase vitrine! Memories, memories... of a passion never extinct… » GDJ . Jan BRUEGHEL the Younger (Antwerp 1601-1678) "Travelers on a forest road" Copper 26,3 x 38,9 cm .
