Description:
Anton Schoonjans (Antwerp c. 1655–1726 Vienna) A pasticcio portrait of Emperor Peter the Great of Russia, oil on canvas, 60 x 51 cm, framed We are grateful to Prof. Eduard Safarik, who recognised the present painting as a work by Schoonjans and identified the sitter as Peter the Great. Schoonjans was appointed imperial court painter in Vienna in 1695. During a stay in Berlin, he portrayed Frederick William, the Crown Prince of Prussia, combining typical features of traditional portraiture with elements of genre painting. This also holds true for the present composition. In both paintings, emphasis has been placed on the respective sitter’’’’s exaggerated hairstyle, which is reminiscent of a lion’’’’s mane. This is therefore not a realistic portrait of the Russian emperor, but the artist’’’’s personal translation of the sitter’’’’s qualities, so that it may be called a pasticcio. Safarik compares the present portrait to a further portrait of the Russian emperor by Adam Manyoki (cf. E. A. Safarik, Johann Kupezky, Ein Meister des Barockporträts, Rome 2011). Specialist: Dr. Alexander Strasoldo

Description:
Anton Schoonjans (Antwerp um 1655–1726 Vienna) Pasticcio portrait of Tsar Peter the Great of Russia, oil on canvas, 60 x 51 cm, framed We are grateful to Prof Eduard Safarik, who has confirmed this painting to be the work of Schoonjans and the sitter as Peter the Great. From 1695, Schoonjans was a court painter in Vienna. During his stay in Berlin, he executed a portrait of the Prussian Crown Prince, Friedrich Wilhelm, in which he combined elements of the Classical portrait with those of genre painting, as is the case in our painting. Both pictures feature sitters with apparently overdrawn leonine manes. This is not a realistic portrait of the Tsar, but instead an individualised representation of the character traits of the sitter, that is, it is a pasticcio. Safarik compares this portrait with another one of the Tsar, who was famous throughout Europe, by Adam Manyoki (see E. A. Safarik (ed.), Johann Kupezky, Ein Meister des Barockporträts, Rome 2001). Tsar Peter, who had been married to the future Tsarina Catherine I since 1712, undertook a Grand Tour around Western Europe in 1716/17. After the victory over Sweden, he wished to establish Russia as an equal partner to the great European powers. The tour started with a spa visit to Pyrmont, and he went on to visit the courts of Berlin and Copenhagen. He then travelled to Paris via the Netherlands, where he stayed for several weeks and was received by the young King Louis XV. He returned to his capital, St. Petersburg visiting the resort, Spa in Belgium, Holland and Berlin en route.
