Description:
Jacob Jordaens THE WIFE OF KING CANDAULES ANTWERP 1593 - 1678 oil on canvas 26 by 21 1/8 in.; 66 by 53.6 cm. Provenance Possibly Baron Coenraad Baron Droste; His sale, The Hague, 21 July 1734, lot 4; Anonymous sale, London, Sotheby\’s, 5 July 2017, lot 51; There acquired by the present owner. Catalogue Note The subject is related by Herodotus in his Histories: Candaules, King of Lydia boasted to his favorite bodyguard Gyges of the beauty of his wife, and insisted that Gyges receive proof.He ordered Gyges to hide behind a door in the Royal bed-chamber so that he could witness the beauty of the unclad Queen. This is a study or modello for the figure of King Candaules\’ wife in Jordaens\’ large painting of King Candaules\’ wife displaying herself to Gyges at the behest of her husband, dated 1646, and now in the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm.1 In the completed work it is clear that King Candaules\’ wife is looking over her shoulder at the viewer, and not at Gyges, who is to the extreme right of the composition.In the present work there is a clearly visible and significant pentiment in the lace cap that she wears.Originally, the cap extended further to the left, its deeper lobes covering most of her hair. The revised form is much closer to the finished painting, but Jordaens moved the lowest two lobes of lace back towards her neck, strongly suggesting that this study precedes it. The thinly applied drapery along the bottom of the painting (in contrast to the thicker white cloth draped over the subject's left elbow) appears to have been added later, perhaps when the work was being prepared for sale.Visible in the lower right corner however, looped round her right arm, is a white drapery underneath the added and more thinly painted white cloth running along the bottom. This appears to be original, an impression confirmed in X-Ray.2Unlike the thicker drapery to the left, this does not occur in the finished painting in Stockholm. The measurements (23 duim x 19 duim) correspond with a paintingby Jordaens described as of Queen Tomyris which was sold in the sale of Baron Droste in The Hague in 1734.No other work depicting Queen Tomyris is known by Jordaens. 1. See N. de Poorter, in R.-A. d\’Hulst, N. de Poorterand M. Vandenven, Jacob Jordaens (1593–1678), exhibition catalogue, Antwerp 1993, pp. 236–39, no. A76, reproduced. 2.Available on request.

Calando's notes in the handwritten catalogue of his collection); Emile Calando, Senr., Paris (L.837, with pencil inventory number, 1855 on reverse of old backing); sale, New York, Sotheby's, 26 January 2000, lot 58, where purchased by the late owner Literature R.-A. d'Hulst, Jordaens Drawings, London 1974, vol. II, p. 467, cat. A408, vol. IV, fig. 428; U. Heinen, 'Psyche, Satyrs, Philosophers. Jordaens and the wisdom of the Ancients', in Jordaens and the Antique,exh. cat., Brussels, Royal Museums of the Fine Arts of Belgium, and Kassel, Museum Fridericianum, 2012-13,pp. 136, 163, nn. 17, 21 Catalogue Note This typical and appealing drawing by Jordaensis one of a number of works by the artist in various media illustrating the story of the Satyr and the Peasant. In the classical text, from the fables of Aesop, we read how the satyr, invited to dine with the peasant and his family, is astonished to see his host first blowing on his hands to warm them, then on his porridge to cool it, and the theme was adopted in the 17th-century Netherlands as an exemplary and proverbial illustration of how those who blow first hot and then cold are not to be trusted. The theme became something of a favorite with Jordaens, as Ulrich Heinendescribedin the catalogue of the recent exhibition, Jordaens and the Antique (seeLiterature). D'Hulst, who knew the drawing only from an old photograph, dated it circa 1650-55. He also commented that it seemed to be rather rubbed, and retouched in pen and ink, a judgement thatappears undulyharsh, reflecting the poor quality of the photograph at his disposal; Jordaens himself did on occasion add accents in pen to drawings largely executed in chalk and wash and there seems no reason to think that the pen lines in this drawing, which seem integral and structural, are not by his own hand. One example of similar, autograph penwork is the drawing of the very same subject as this, in the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts, Paris.1 1. D'Hulst, op. cit., cat. A51
