Description:
Lot 1232: Jan Brueghel the Elder, Forest Landscape with Ramblers Description: This copper panel is one of a group of works painted by Jan Brueghel the Elder around 1600 which mark the transition from the “world landscape” of the 16th century to the more realistic landscapes of the 17th. Previous landscape depictions had suggested an elevated viewpoint, but since the late 16th century, artists had begun to develop the Netherlandish flat landscape. These were composed as if seen from a much lower viewpoint with a correspondingly low horizon. The traditional, strict division of the landscape into three planes, with fore-, middle- and backgrounds each dominated by brown, green and blue tones respectively, was softened, allowing one main tone to prevail. This heightened the illusion of distance and three-dimensionality, creating works that one could almost step into. Other paintings from this group include works by Brueghel in the Ambrosiana in Milan (inv. no. 74/20, Ertz op. cit., p. 209, no. 86), the Prado in Madrid (inv. no. 1385, Ertz op. cit., p. 214, no. 89) as well as a further, similar piece sold by Lempertz in Cologne in auction 969, 20.11.2010 as lot 1035. Before Klaus Ertz attributed this work to Brueghel, it was traditionally ascribed to Roeland Savery. Brueghel's forest landscapes do indeed display strong parallels to Savery's works, although the latter was not quite as influential for the new style of landscape. It was probably due to the similarity of the two artists' wooded landscapes that the subsequent inscription “Savary” was added to the lower right of this panel.

Description:
Jan Brueghel I (Brussels 1568–1625 Antwerp)The Temptation of Saint Anthony,oil on panel, 14 x 23,6 cm, framed Provenance:Private collection, BelgiumWe are grateful to Klaus Ertz for confirming the authenticity ofthe present painting. A written certificate, dated 23 December2015, is available.Ertz dates the present painting to around 1595, Brueghel’’’’s Italianperiod. He writes: ‘In his early years, Jan Brueghel the Elder hadalready dealt with the subject of Saint Anthony in severalversions, including one dated from around 1595 and a second, whichis preserved in Dresden and was painted ten years later (see K.Ertz/Ch. Nitze-Ertz, Jan Brueghel der Ältere, Lingen, 2008–10, vol.II, pp. 616-623, cat. nos. 293 and 295). In all of these versions,the artist invented the infernal landscape. The motif of the Templeof the Tiburtine Sibyl near Rome, which the artist frequently usedat the time, also speaks in favour of this early date of execution.It is typical of Jan Brueghel the Elder that he treated a theme ina version on copper and slightly varied it on panel. Probably thepresent little panel is one of the earliest versions of the subjecton which the Dresden painting is based. In all of his compositionsdevoted to the theme of Saint Anthony, it seems to have beenunthinkable for Jan the Elder to set the scene of the temptation indifferent surroundings, such as in an intimate forest. The presentcomposition thus proves a theory frequently voiced in this context,namely that Jan the Elder, as soon as he had chosen a compositionaltype for a certain subject, would remain true to it.’’’’In his monograph on Jan Brueghel the Elder, Ertz comments uponBrueghel’’’’s special iconography for the subject: ‘With suchinfernal landscapes, Jan Brueghel the Elder presents himself as ahighly typical exponent of Mannerist painting around 1600. AFleming, he particularly adopted the theme of monsters and spookyand fantastic creatures that had been introduced by HieronymusBosch and which in Brueghel’’’’s art culminated in a genre of its ownright. It goes without saying that he was also influenced by thespectres in the art of his father, such as those encountered in theFall of the Rebel Angels in Brussels. In literature and general artjargon, the name ‘Hell Brueghel’’’’ is often wrongly used as asynonym for landscapes ravaged by fire or illuminated by lightningand populated by fantastic and eerie creatures, the darknessfrequently being torn apart by dazzling lights. However, thisnickname has always been associated with one of the two Pieters andespecially became a rigid formula for Jan’’’’s brother, although ithas meanwhile turned out that Pieter the Younger did not paint asingle so called infernal landscape.’’’’

Description:
Fullsize picture Jan Brueghel I. (Brussels 1568–1625 Antwerp) Canal landscape with two workshops at the banks fragments of a signature at lower left: B.... HEL 1.0., oil on copper, 17.5 x 22.5 cm, framed With the brand of the plate maker Peeter Stas (active between 1587 and 1610) on the reverse. We are grateful to Klaus Ertz for confirming the attribution after examination of the painting in the original (written communication, March 2015). Ertz writes: “The present painting can be said to have survived in good condition. The paints, applied in the impasto technique, still give a jewel-like and brilliant impression, while the overlapping, translucent glazes are excellently preserved. The copper plate is one of the thick and heavy types produced in the early 17th century […]. When compared to the ‘world landscapes’’’’ of the 16th century, the approach to reality in the present picture has fundamentally changed. Different from the art of Pieter Brueghel the Elder, for example, here the beholder no longer looks down on a scene set far below, but metaphorically speaking almost enters the picture’’’’s space. Nevertheless Jan Brueghel the Elder maintains the distance between the spectator and the composition by still choosing a slightly raised vantage point. At the same time, the artist ‘narrates’’’’ episodes from contemporary everyday village life, such as the conversation between villagers, animals moving about freely, figures attending to horses, and the loading and unloading of barges. These ‘story-telling’’’’ village landscapes number among the artist’’’’s most advanced and pioneering compositions, which he started tackling around 1605. They can generally be assigned to the genre of ‘village scenes by a river’’’’, which involves the peculiar combination of two themes of landscape painting that also existed individually: the village landscape and the river landscape. In this painting, the 16th century’’’’s rigid division into the three colours of brown, green, and blue has been entirely overcome. Spatial depth is now merely accentuated by zones of light and shade and, of course, by the canal, which orthogonally extends into the background. Foreground, midground, and background seamlessly blend into one another.” Ertz compares the present painting to the following works by Jan Brueghel I, all of which are closely related to it in terms of composition and painterly handling: 1. Village Scene with a Forge (Pushkin Museum, Moscow, signed and dated 1603); 2. Village Road (Alte Pinakothek, Munich, signed and dated 1610); 3. Village Landscape with a Canal (Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan, signed and dated 16.7); 4. Village Road with a Canal (private collection, signed and dated 1609) Ertz continues: “Like the present painting, the works by Jan Brueghel the Elder mentioned above belong to the landscape type of ‘wide river landscape’’’’. The beholder’’’’s eye wanders across the picture and its spatiality as a whole without ‘getting stuck’’’’. Horizontals dominate over verticals, although the row of houses on the right-hand side still betrays vertical tendencies, which would play a role in the painter’’’’s work throughout his career as a formal and compositional means to organise the two-dimensional surface of the picture. In terms of chronology, the painting to be assessed here must be assigned to approximately the period in which the comparative examples mentioned above were made. Given the development of Flemish landscape painting in general and the similarities between the aforementioned compositions and the present painting in particular, the latter seems to date from the mid-1610s.” A slightly different copy of the present composition by the hand of a follower of Jan Brueghel I was sold at the Vienna Dorotheum on 24 June 2015 as lot 20. The present picture probably shows a reloading point on the Herenstals canal in the surroundings of Antwerp. We can see so-called “hessenwagens”, coaches drawn by six or eight horses, by which goods were shipped from Antwerp to Southern Germany and Italy. Specialist: Alexander Strasoldo
