Description:
Anton Mirou THE DEATH OF PROCRIS ANTWERP 1570 - 1661 OR AFTER signed and dated lower right: MIROV / 1607 oil on copper 55.5 x 70.5 cm.; 21 7/8 x 27 3/4 in. Provenance In the possession of a German noble family by 1785–86, when listed in their inventory as no. 264; In their 1988 inventory as no. 400; Anonymous sale ('The Property of a Nobleman'), London, Sotheby's, 7 December 2006, lot 101 (as Denijs van Alsloot); Where acquired by the present owner. Mirou was a leading member of the group of artists known as the Frankenthal school. He and his family, like many other protestants from Flanders and Brabant, took refuge from religious persecution in Frankenthal under the protection of Elector Palatine and staunch Calvinist, Frederick III. Mirou is thought to have stayed there until about 1620 (he is mentioned in archives up to that date) at which point he most likely returned to Antwerp. His Frankenthal-period landscapes, of which this is undoubtedly one, have their own distinct character and are influenced to a great degree by his fellow Frankenthal painter Gillis van Coninxloo; bosky landscapes with a deep interest in craggy mountains, waterfalls, rock fortresses, and the idiosyncracies of the knotty paths that tunnel beneath the thick canopy. After about 1614 however Mirou\\\\’s output began to reflect the work of another Frankenthaler, Pieter Schoubroeck, and from this point on his œuvre mainly consists of highly populated village landscapes. Mirou\\\\’s profound interest in topography remained however, and a series of drawn views of Schwalbach were disseminated widely through the Low Countries via Matthias Merian\\\\’s prints after twenty-six of them in an album entitled Novæ quædam ac paganæ regiunculæ circa acidulas Swalbacenses delineatæ per Antonium Mirulem in aes vero incisæ per Mathæ Merianem (Hollstein, xiv, nos 1–26).

Anton Mirou (Antwerp 1578 - before 1627 Frankenthal) An extensive village landscape with a canal, oil on panel, 30 x 41 cm, framed

We are grateful to Ursula Härting for confirming the authorship. A written certificate, September 2016, accompanies the present lot. The present painting is a characteristic work of the School of Frankenthal. It combines Flemish landscape elements with highly narrative genre details. Anton Mirou is one of the painters who worked alongside Gillis van Coninxloo in the artists\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’ colony at Frankenthal in the Electorate Palatinate, Germany. Few details of his life are known. The date and location of his birth do not appear on any document. His parents, Hendrik Mirou, a pharmacist, and his first wife settled in Frankenthal in 1586. They were among the Calvinist emigrants who fled the Netherlands after 1562 in order to join Frederick III of the Palatinate. In 1602, Anton Mirou married Susanna Coninxloo, the daughter of Jasper Coninxloo. They apparently had no children. It is possible that he stayed for a time in Bad Schwalbach near Wiesbaden in the Taunus; such a sojourn is indicated by a drawing in the Munich prints gallery, an engraving made in 1620 by Matthäus Merian and twenty-six views of the site engraved after the work of Anton Mirou.
