Description:
Jan Brueghel the Younger, Lucas van Uden, Wooded Landscape with a Game Still Life Description: The present work combines a landscape by the Flemish artist Lucas van Uden, a pupil and collaborator in the studio of Rubens, with a game still life in the foreground painted by Jan Brueghel the Younger. As yet, no documentary evidence for such a collaboration between these two artists has emerged, and alongside one further work in a Belgian private collection, this is the only piece on which the two are known to have collaborated. The Belgian work depicts a similar wooded landscape with a panoramic view in the distance and almost identical game in the foreground, but in a different composition. Klaus Ertz has confirmed the various depictions of animals to be based on models devised by Jan Brueghel the Elder and Frans Snyders. The combination of a landscape with animals \“as the sole protagonists of a painting\” was an innovation at this time (Ertz op. cit., p. 77). In the works of Jan Brueghel the Elder, the artist's father, animal still lifes such as this were always embedded into biblical or mythological scenes. The present work can boast an interesting provenance, having belonged to the important old masters collection of Edward Habich (1818-1898) from Kassel until 1892. Habich founded a company in the United States and travelled to Boston frequently. His collection of 166 old master paintings was sold by Lempertz in 1892. However, the auction did not take place as usual in Cologne, being instead held in the \“great hall of the art gallery in Cassel\”. With the support of Emperor Wilhelm II, the painting gallery in Kassel was able to purchase seventeen works for its collection before the auction. The National Gallery in London purchased 13 works from the collection, and they were also able to subsequently secure a piece by Lucas Cranach the Elder from this auction in 1926. After featuring in the 1892 auction, and a further successful sale by Lempertz in 1973, this work has now once again found its way back to our house. Dimensions: 51 x 74 cm Medium: Oil on panel

Description:
Jan Brueghel I (Brussels 1568–1625 Antwerp) The Temptation of Adam in Paradise, oil on panel, 36.5 x 47.5 cm, framed Provenance: Private European collection; sale, Dorotheum, Vienna, 13 April 2011, lot 457; Private European collection Literature: K. Ertz, C. Nitze-Ertz, Jan Brueghel d. Ä., Kritischer Katalog der Gemälde, vol. IV, Lingen 2010, add. 17, pp.1651-1652 The present composition, which includes a certificate from Dr Klaus Ertz, remained unpublished until 2010 and has been an important addition to the oeuvre of the artist. Klaus Ertz writes: “In the 1590s, Jan Brueghel the Elder painted his first paradise landscapes. He established a genre of its own, which, as we now know, was highly successful particularly in seventeenth-century Flemish painting and among the artist’’’’’’’’s followers”. The earliest example of this genre, dated 1595, is now preserved in the Galleria Doria Pamphilj in Rome. A paradise landscape with Noah’’’’’’’’s Ark dates from the following year (private collection, Italy). Ertz: “These two early paradise landscapes are the prototypes, so to speak, for all the subsequent ones: the large apple tree with the figures of Adam and Eve, most often placed in the centre, frequently amidst some landscape scenery; the view into the distance, either right or left of the tree; the accumulation of animals in the foreground, varying depending on the time when the picture in question was made. The sources for the early animal models are unclear: Jan the Elder must partly have relied on his own observations and partly have borrowed from artists such as Peter Paul Rubens or Gonzales Cock”. Ertz about the dating of the present painting: “That the painting in question was made at an early date is illustrated both by the animals, which only occur in this form in the 1590s, and the two figures. It is generally assumed that Sadeler’’’’’’’’s engraving after de Vos served as a model for the present and subsequent examples.” Ertz compares this painting with the following works: 1) Paradise Landscape with the Fall of Man (Staatsgalerie Neuburg an der Donau, which dates from 1596 and was done with the participation of Hendrick de Clerck); 2) Paradise Landscape with the Fall of Man (Museo del Prado, Madrid, before 1612, with the participation of Hendrick de Clerck); 3) Paradise Landscape with the Fall of Man (circa 1612, French private collection) Klaus Ertz about the figures: “That the figures in the present picture are not by the hand of de Clerck – although they greatly rely on his art – but were probably painted by Jan the Elder himself is suggested by the evident differences in style; compared to the nude figures by de Clerck, with their muscular physiques being accentuated by light and shadow, they are softer and not as heavily modelled”.

Description:
Lot 1022: Jan Brueghel the Elder, Wide Landscape with Windmills

Signed lower left: H BREUgEL (probably added or amended)Klaus Ertz dates this work to 1611, as Jan Brueghel is known to have painted a number of similar landscapes at that time (cf. Ertz & Nitze-Ertz, op. cit., p. 324ff) , which he dubs the "Spada group" after the first known work (Ertz, op. cit., p. 164f).Jan Breughel manages to evoke a distant panorama. He achieves this by dispensing with obvious distinctions between fore, middle, and backgrounds, using the far horizon as a main feature of the composition. Only the looming silhouette of the windmill reaching into the sky breaks the horizon line. The fore ground is rendered in brown tones, and the mid ground is brightly lit by the light of the sun, whilst the background fades into a clear blue. The artist depicts the sun just behind the front windmill, simultaneously lending a lighter accent to the sky and accentuating the windmill structure. Small landscape works such as this, carefully painted in vivid colours on copper, were popular collector's items and were often given as royal presentations. The placement of the figural and architectural staffage, the skilful use of colour and light, as well as the artist's total confidence in the small format all show Jan Brueghel's maturity. He was working as court painter to the Stadtholder of the Southern Netherlands at the time this work was painted. Ertz mentions in the catalogue raisonné that the signature might be a later addition.
