MEINDERT HOBBEMA (1638 Amsterdam - 1709 Amsterdam) LANDSCHAFT MIT BAUERNHAUS Signiert und datiert unten rechts: M. Hobbema 1659 Öl auf Holz. 34,5 x 43,5 cm. Gutachten Christopher Wright, 18. August 1980. Provenienz S. van der Stel, Amsterdam (1781). - J. R. Mills (1879). - Sotheby´s London (1973). - Deutsche Privatsammlung. Ausstellungen London, Royal Academy: "17th Century Art in Europe", 1938, Nr. 251. C. Hofstede de Groot, Bd. IV, 1911, S. 386, Nr. 49 h. Unser Gemälde ist ein frühes Werk des gerade 21jährigen Meindert Hobbema. Als er es 1659 malte, arbeitete er noch unter der Leitung von Jacob van Ruysdael. Dennoch ist bereits die Handschrift des bedeutenden Landschaftsmalers so weit entwickelt, dass sie vollends erkennbar ist. Dabei fällt insbesondere die horizontale Gliederung der Bildfläche auf, bei der sich helle Partien von dunklen absetzen. Häufig malt Hobbema unter den Bäumen gedrungene Gebäude wie hier die grau-braune Kate. Charakteristisch ist auch die sparsame Staffage, die in diesem Fall aus einem einsamen Bauernpaar besteht. Dieses ist sehr ähnlich mit dem auf dem großen Bild aus der Sammlung des Fürsten Liechtenstein von 1655 - wo es allerdings in die entgegengesetzte Richtung geht. Wie auf vielen und auch späteren Werken führt ein sandiger Weg von der vorderen linken Ecke diagonal in das Bild hinein. Von wenigen Ausnahmen abgesehen sind die datierten Werke Hobbemas alle zwischen 1658 und 1668 entstanden. Dies war zweifellos das Jahrzehnt seiner größten Produktivität und schöpferischen Kraft. Die bereits früh ausgeprägte Landschaftsauffassung seiner bewaldeten Dünenlandschaften hat über Generationen die Betrachter seiner Bilder begeistert. So schreibt etwa John Constable 1824: "Wenn es die Seestücke van de Veldes, die Wasserfälle Ruysdaels und die heimischen Wälder Hobbemas nicht gäbe: wäre die Welt nicht um viele charakteristische Kunstwerke ärmer?" This painting is an early work from the 21 year old Meindert Hobbema. Whilst painting it in 1659 he was still working under the tutelage of Jacob van Ruisdael. However, the style of this important landscape artist was already so far developed that it is fully recognisable in the picture. In particular, the horizontal structure of the picture surface stands out, where the light areas contrast with the dark. Hobbema often painted squat buildings under the trees, such as the grey-brown cottage here. The minimal number of decorative figures is also typical, in this case consisting only of a farming couple. This is comparable to the large picture from the Fürsten Liechtenstein collection of 1655, although they are depicted coming from the opposite direction. As seen in many works, including later examples, a sandy path leads diagonally into the scene from the lower left corner. Apart from only a few exceptions, all the dated works from Hobbema are from between 1658 and 1668. This decade was without doubt his most productive and creative. With an early developed, distinctive landscape concept, his wooded dune landscapes have inspired viewers of his pictures over the generations. John Constable wrote in 1824: 'What if Vander Velde had quitted his sea pieces, or Ruysdael his waterfalls, or Hobbema his native woods. The world would have lost so many features in art?'

Lot Notes We are grateful to Dr. Frits Duparc for confirming the attribution of the picture after inspection of the original. He dates it to the late 1650s placing it within a group of works of similar pale tonality, including the Roadside Cottage (Städel Museum, Frankfurt) and a River Landscape (Musée de Grenoble), both dated 1659. Having just emerged from the studio of Jacob van Ruisdael in that year, Hobbema's palette was more tonal and subdued than it would become in his great landscapes of the 1660s which were infused with a greener and richer palette. The depiction of Hobbema's native landscape, the countryside of the eastern provinces - Drenthe and Gelderland - is gentle and placid, in contrast to the brooding, more dramatic landscapes found in Ruisdael's work. The visual architecture of Hobbema's composition is carefully designed to lead the eye around the canvas in a swirling motion via the sandy paths and the fall of light, giving the sense of effortless spatial harmony.

CATALOGUE NOTE Born in Amsterdam in 1638, Hobbema studied in the studio of Jacob van Ruisdael and his early style is clearly indebted to his master's approach to landscape painting. Ruisdael's influence on his pupil, while extremely formative, lasts a relatively short time and by 1662 Hobbema started to demonstrate his own individuality and range within the wooded landscape genre. We are thus faced with the paradox that while Hobbema's landscape's are unimaginable without those of Jacob van Ruisdael, the latter's influence on his work is remarkably short-lived, although Hobbema never subsequently strayed far from the subtly restrained palette and pervasive tactile qualities of his teacher. In terms of composition, Hobbema focuses almost exclusively on dense wooded landscapes with thick overhanging foliage, often with small wood cottages, churches, and local residents who stroll among paths strewn about the woods. This composition exists as a characteristic and highly successful example of Hobbema's early style. A road winds away into the distance as a man walks along it with a stick in his hand. On the opposite side of the road a woman sits and converses with a man and a boy who stand just beside her. Two cottages are placed on the right hand side of the canvas, with one being slightly cut off by the canvas itself. The two cottages are at opposite ends of an opening in the wooded landscape which frames a bright blue sky, which pours sunlight onto parts of the foreground. A subtle interplay between light and dark is achieved here, yet another hallmark of Hobbema's personal style. John Smith, the heralded 19th century biographer wrote of Hobbema, "Whatever emanated from his pencil bears the true impress of nature, under her most engaging aspect; whether the rural scene presents the unripe freshness of the vernal season, or the varied foliage of mellow autumn. The several periods of the day are also given with admirable correctness, and no incident is neglected or overlooked that mau contribute to the beauty of the piece" (J. Smith, A Catalogue Raisonné..., London 1912, vol. IV, p. 111). Another version of this same scene is mentioned in Hofstede de Groot, (A Catalogue Raisonné... , vol. IV, no. 239) described from a wood engraving by Charles Blanc (Histoire des Peinres , 1861, vol. II, p.7) and Emile Michel (Hobbema et Les Paysagistes de Son Temps en Hollande , 1890, p. 9).

CATALOGUE NOTE Meindert Hobbema was one of the great Dutch landscape painters of the later seventeenth century. His early work reflects the influences of Cornelis Vroom and Salomon van Ruysdael, but after 1662 he takes his model as Jacob Ruisdael, with whom he studied. However, unlike Ruisdael he restricted his range, limiting himself almost exclusively to wooded scenes with rich foliage. Within these self-imposed boundaries he displayed an almost infinite variety of composition. Here a traveler and his dog walk slowly up the winding river road; to their right a group of ramshackle buildings are piled one upon the other and seem almost to have been taken over by the surrounding woods.
