Knaus; Christie's, London, 27 July 1931, lot 23, as 'J.F. van Douven' (4 gns. to Boout). Stanley Kaye; Christie's, London, 27 February 1948, lot 120, sold for 16 gns. to the following, Dr. E. I. Shapiro, London; (†) Christie's, London, 29 June 1979, lot 1, illustrated (£1,700). Literature U. Härting, Frans Francken der Jüngere (1581-1642), Freren, 1989, II, p. 245, no. 67, illustrated. The subject of The Meeting of David and Abigail derives from the Old Testament Book of Samuel (25:1-43). Though relatively unusual as an iconography in seventeenth-century painting, the subject was painted by Rubens in the early 1630s (Los Angeles, The J. Paul Getty Museum and Detroit, Institute of Arts), which may have provided the initial impetus for the present work by Francken, dated to circa 1634.

Description:
Francken, Frans II. Antwerpen 1581 - 1642 Anbetung der Heiligen Drei Könige. Öl auf Marmor. 57,5 x 42cm. Rahmen. Gutachten: Dr. Ursula Härting, Hamm 06.01.2017. In Ihrem Gutachten vom 6. Januar 2017 bestätigt Dr. Ursula Härting die Autorenschaft von Frans Francken II. Dieses Ölgemälde gehört zu den ganz besonderen Raritäten, da Marmor als Bildträger im Vergleich zu Holz oder Leinwand nur sehr selten verwendet wurde. Der weiße Marmor unterstreicht in diesem Gemälde die Unbeflecktheit der Muttergottes und deutet auch die schneeweiße, winterliche Atmosphäre des 6. Januars an - des Tages der Heiligen drei Könige. Neben den klassischen Figuren dieser Szene steht am linken Bildrand ein Mann mit einem großen Federbusch am Hut. Hierbei handelt es sich um ein Selbstportrait des Malers Frans Francken II. Dr. Härting datiert dieses im Original begutachtete Gemälde auf die 1630er Jahre. Zusatztexte: Frans Francken II. Erläuterungen zum Katalog Frans II. Francken Flandern Niederländische/ Flämische Schule 17.Jh. Originale Religiöse Darstellung Malerei Leben Christi Francken, Frans II Antwerp 1581 - 1642 Adoration of the Magi. Oil on marble. 57.5 x 42cm. Framed. Certificate: Dr. Ursula Härting, Hamm 06.01.2017. In her certificate from January 6th, 2017 Dr. Ursula Härting confirms the authorship of Frans Francken II. This oil painting belongs to the very special rarities, as marble was only very seldom used as a carrier in comparison with wood or canvas. The white marble in this painting underlines the immaculateness of the Virgin Mary and also points to the snow-white, wintery atmosphere of January 6th - the holiday called Epiphany (Day of the Magi). Next to the classical figures of this scene a man with a large feather-plumed hat stands at the left image margin. This is a self-portrait of the painter Frans Francken II. Dr. Härting dates this painting, evaluated in original, to the 1630s.

Description:
Frans Francken II (Antwerp 1581–1642) Croesus showing Solon his Riches, signed at lower right: D. O... FF., oil on copper, 55x72.5cm, framed Provenance: sale, Dorotheum, Vienna, 13 April 2011, lot 469; Private European collection This impressively crowded composition is one of the most important discoveries in Francken\’s oeuvre. No other version of the painting, which ranks among the most splendid works by this Antwerp master, is known to Ursula Härting, who has examined it in the original. It shows both Francken\’s technical perfection and the elegance of his compositions. In spite of the technically ambitious application of the paint in the form of delicate glazes, the artist never loses the spontaneity of his brushwork, which turns the facial features of his protagonists into impressive character studies. The artistic quality of this painter, who has eventually been adequately recognised on the art market, also reveals itself in the amalgamation of various stylistic influences. While the background is entirely in the tradition of late sixteenth-century landscape painting, the king\’s exotic garments betray the preferences of the upcoming Baroque. Francken also drew his inspirations from Ancient Rome, whose formal vocabulary had been re-discovered during the High Renaissance. For instance, the magnificent vessels in the left foreground refer to copper engravings by Vredeman de Vries after Roman grotesque decorations. The luxurious buffet with its curved pillars, meanwhile, is reminiscent of designs by Jacques Androuet du Cerceau. Francken has united these influences in his re-interpretation of the antique subject of hubris and penitence within a panorama of a contemporary landscape. The artist chose two levels of narrative when he illustrated Herodotus\’s story about the fate of King Croesus, whose hubris took him to the funeral pyre and the brink of death. In the foreground, the proverbially rich Croesus shows his treasures to Solon, a wise thinker. In the background Croesus is depicted on the pyre, having been sentenced to die at the stake by Cyrus the Great of Persia. Croesus remembers Solon\’s advice and calls his name; upon declaring his remorse, Cyrus pardons him. This re-discovery, a virtuoso fusion of multiple levels in terms of both style and iconography, is an impressive example of Francken\’s great skill as a painter. Specialist: Dr. Alexander Strasoldo
