Description:
Jean Baptiste de Saive II (Namur 1571–1624 Malines)
Portrait of an aristocratic couple as vegetable sellers, oil on canvas, 138 x 105 cm, framed

We are grateful to Dr. Fred Meijer of the RKD, The Hague, who examined the original painting and endorsed it as an autograph work by Saive (personal information imparted to the previous owner).

The present painting is of great art historical interest in that it contains a blending of two categories: genre and portrait. In his composition, Saive has recularly distributed individual pictorial elements reminiscent of still lifes. In his usually large-format works, the young Saive concentrated on fruit and vegetables of unusual opulence, which he would add to a market scene in a narrative way. His large, picture-filling figures are well observed, finely drawn, and reveal his talent as a portraitist. His works belong to the tradition of Flemish market, kitchen, and seasonal pictures, which became a genre in themselves thanks to Joachim Beuckelaer and Pieter Aertsen. Whereas for them there was often a moralizing element, it appears that the younger Saive was more interested in a display of sensuality and joie de vivre.

In the present painting one must not overlook an artifice that was advanced for the times: at first glance, it seems to be a pure market scene, but neither the attire nor the jewellery of the couple fits a genre picture. The man is holding a medallion in his hand with the portrait of a child on it. Thus it is clear: this is the portrait of a married couple as sutlers. A possible court context could be surmised as its origin, for Saive also worked for the Habsburg governor, Archduke Albrecht. The palace seen in the background of the market brings to mind Coudenberg Palace, the Brussels residence of the governing couple.

CATALOGUE NOTE
Jean-Baptiste de Saive the Younger was born in Malines in 1597and studied in the workshop of his father; his works retain astrong stylistic affinity with both those of his father and,especially in terms of composition, with the work of JoachimBeuckelaer. Saive the Elder's work is best exemplified by a seriesof six canvases representing the months of the year, three of whichare now in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna and two more weresold London, Sotheby's, 3 July 1997, lots 17 and 18. Many of Saivethe Younger's works have previously been attributed to his father;the Fruit and vegetable stall in a town market that sold London,Christie's, 7 July 2000, lot 36, for £300,000, for example, hadbeen exhibited in the Beuckelaer exhibtion in Ghent in 1986-7 asthe work of the father.1

Description:
measurements measurements note 172.5 by 217 cm.; 67 5/8 by 85 3/8 in. description oil on canvas provenance private collection, scotland catalogue note jean-baptiste saive the younger was born in malines in 1597. although little is known about his early career, it is most likely that he studied in the workshop of his father jean-baptiste saive the elder. his own paintings retain a strong stylitic affinity with those of his father, whose work is exemplified by a series of six canvases representing the months of the year painted in 1590-91 for the archduke ernst of austria. three of these are now in the kunsthistorisches museum, vienna (inv. nos. 1626, 2204, 7628) and two more were sold london, sotheby's, 3 july, 1997 lots 17 and 18. while these works by the elder show a clear influence of lucas van valckenborch, the oeuvre of his son remains less defined, and the works given to him appear to have more stylistic affinities with the work of joachim beuckelaer. another large signed market scene by the same hand as and of similar dimensions to the present picture was sold london, christie's, 7 july 2000, lot 36 for £300,000, with an attribution to jean-baptiste saive the younger, although it had been thought, prior to cleaning, to be the work of his father and exhibited as such (ghent, museum voor schone kunsten, joachim beuckelaer, 1986-1987, no. 27). this reattribution was made on basis of comparison with a picture in the musée des beaux arts, rheims, which wabbes and de maere (dictionary of 17th century flemish paintings, brussels 1994, p. 1033) give to saive the younger. as fred g. meijer has recently observed it seems likely that father and son saive ran a fairly large workshop that produced a number of large scale kitchens and markets in response to popular demand, and that the seperation of their distinct artistic personalities remains problematic. we are grateful to fred g. meijer from the rijksbureau voor kunsthistorische documentatie for confirming the attribution on the basis of a transparency.

Lot Notes
Catalogued as by Jean Baptiste de Saive I (c. 1540-1624) at the Ghent exhibition on the basis of the signature discovered during cleaning, the present lot is now be regarded as the work of his son, Jean Baptiste de Saive II. His manner differs from that of his father, who painted depictions of three months of the year for Archduke Ernst of Austria (Vienna, Kunsthistorisches Museum); another two from the same series were with van Haeften, London, in 1997. Those paintings display a close affinity with the work of Lucas van Valkenborch, whereas in the present picture the treatment of the still life elements is very close to that of Frans Snyders, while the composition harks back to de Beuckelaer.
Another version of the present work, of smaller dimensions and with slight changes, is in the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Rheims. This picture is attributed by J. de Maere and M. Wabbes (Illustrated Dictionary of 17th Century Flemish Painters, Brussels, 1994, pls. L-2, p. 1033) to Jean de Saive II. Paul Verbraecken, who wrote the 1987 Ghent exhibition catalogue and whose help in cataloguing this lot is here gratefully acknowledged, believes that this Jean II, should in fact be identified as Jean Baptiste de Saive II, whose dates are given above. Like Jean de Saive I he was active in Namur.
