Description:
Workshop of Peter Paul Rubens (Siegen 1577–1640 Antwerp) The Three Graces, oil on panel, 46 x 33.5 cm, framed The female figures depicted in the present composition can be identified as the three Graces Thalia, Aglaea, and Euphrosyne, daughters of Zeus. The present painting is a workshop variant based on a motif invented by Rubens. The version to which the present composition is most closely related was made around 1620–23 and is now in the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, another autograph version is preserved at the Museo del Prado, Madrid. The present painting dates from Rubens\’s most productive phase and financially most successful years. His arrival in Antwerp coincided with the truce of 1609, which allowed the economy to recover as a whole. During his following years in Antwerp, the master received numerous prestigious commissions, including an altarpiece for the church of St. Bavo (The Raising of the Cross and The Deposition), an Assumption of the Virgin for the Cathedral of Our Lady, and an Adoration of the Magi for the Town Hall, meant to mark the signing of the truce. Rubens also worked for European courts – for the Habsburg and Medici families and for the English royal household – as well as members of the higher aristocracy. Among his clients were also patricians and the Jesuits, who fervently pursued the programme of the Counter-Reformation in their cultural policy. The artist was only able to cope with such a workload with the aid of a smoothly functioning workshop. Even for such important commissions as the famous Ildefonso altarpiece Rubens employed numerous pupils and assistants, including Anthony van Dyck (1616–1620) and Jacob Jordaens (1615–1617). In a letter to Sir Dudley Carleton, the English envoi in The Hague, Rubens explained the collaborative practice of working together with his students, pointing out that a work he had invented and designed and which was finally retouched by him after it had been executed by his assistants must be considered an original (see Rooses/Ruelens, La Corerspondance de Rubens, vol. II, reprint Soest 1974, p. 139). Specialist: Dr. Alexander Strasoldo

Description:
Workshop of Peter Paul Rubens (Siegen 1577–1640 Antwerp) The Feast of Herod, oil on canvas, 138 x 162 cm, framed The present painting is an important rediscovery from the workshop of Peter Paul Rubens. The Feast of Herod is a composition dating from Rubens’’’’’’’’s late period (circa 1638–40), which according to Max Rooses, author of the early catalogue raisonné, brought forth some of the master’’’’’’’’s most impressive inventions. The present work once more betrays the unbroken force of Rubens’’’’’’’’s narrative description of his themes in the ironic interpretation of a barbaric biblical event that is carried here to grotesque extremes. Rubens has imaginatively re-enacted the cruelty of the scene. v Only a few versions of this composition from Rubens’’’’’’’’s Antwerp studio are known, all of which date from the time shortly before the master’’’’’’’’s death. A sketch in which Rubens has outlined the protagonists Salome, Herod, and his wife Herodia has survived (Museum of Art, Cleveland/Ohio, inv. no. 54.2). Unsatisfied with this first design, he made corrections to the figure of Salome, all of which were finally carried out in the few painted versions that have come down to us. A large-sized painting in the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh (inv. no. NG2193), is believed to be the prototype, which differs from the present painting in several conspicuous details. Whereas in the Edinburgh painting the architecture in the background was inspired by Italian examples that Rubens vividly remembered from his journey to Italy, the structure of an inner courtyard in the present painting is rather based on the lower storeys of the Rubenshuis in Antwerp. This and further modifications – for example, the page in the Edinburgh painting is light-skinned and the hands of Herod and Herodia are not intertwined – suggests that the collaborator in question, whose identity has not yet been successfully clarified, had a certain standing within the workshop hierarchy. Supervising the production of his workshop, Rubens acted as a guarantor of quality, but also granted talented assistants artistic licence in the completion of his commissions
