Description:
Mr J. Dupuis, Forest-lez-Bruxelles, Belgium; By inheritance to his wife, Mrs. Dupuis-Frantz; Sale, Brussels, Palais des Beaux- Arts, 1964, to the uncle of the present owner (as Jan Brueghel the Younger). 720 PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION Joseph van Bredael ANTWERP 1688 - 1739 PARIS A RIVER LANDSCAPE WITH FIGURES BOTH ON A FERRY AND WAITING ON THE SHORE BENEATH A WINDMILL signed in monogram lower right: J . B oil on copper 29.2 by 37.7 cm.; 11½ by 14¾ in. Estimate 30,000 - 50,000 GBP Print The panel is flat and appears to be very stable. The corners are undamaged. There is craquelure throughout, partially filled in. The signature monogram is crisp and very llegible. There is a reddish surface stain by the right hand edge, half way down, which should be straight forward to clean off. The tiniest details in this work are still intact: facial features, the fine rigging of the fishing vessels, the church spire in the far distance. The detail of the many charming narrative passages has not worn away and they are clear to read and enjoy: a pair of men looking over the side of a boat into the water, a crowd bartering for fresh fish, flirting, gossiping, an old lady struggling with her load. The reeds in the foreground are probably slightly worn and have lost some of their crispness. But the paint surface of the clothing of the figures and the birds in the air is well- preserved. Inspection with UV light reveals the aforementioned infilling of craquelure in the sky, concentrated in the the centre. There are a numebr of dot retouchings in the lower right, and very few others scattered throughout the composition. Otherwise the work is untouched and has clearly been well- looked after. This lovely panel is offered in a giltwood frame, old and worn but structurally sound.

Description:
Joseph van Bredael (Antwerp 1688-1739 Paris) A winter landscape with horse-drawn carts, a hunter and his dogs, and figures skating, a town with a windmill beyond oil on copper 8¾ x 12 in. (22.3 x 30.5 cm.) This painting follows a composition by Joos de Momper II (Antwerp 1564-1635) and Jan Breughel I (Brussels 1568-1625 Brussels) in the Staatliche Museen, Kassel (oil on copper, 39 x 44.7 cm.). Bredael follows the prototype quite closely in the arrangement of the buildings and in the foreground frieze of figures around a horse-drawn cart and wagon, but he lowers the vantage point, introduces a warmer palette and alters the arrangement of the figures skating on the lake. Bredael was clearly drawn to this composition, since Ertz records three other fully autograph versions by the artist and two putative works, on both copper and panel supports, of varying scales (K. Ertz and C. Nitze-Ertz, Josef van Bredael 1688-1739, Lingen, 2006, pp. 34-7, 112-5 and 153-4, nos. E27-E29 [Echt] and F30-F31 [Fraglich] respectively).

Joseph van Bredael (born 1688-1739 Paris) A mountainous landscape with a figure reading before a cottage oil on panel 40.3 x 32.6cm (15 7/8 x 12 13/16in). Footnotes PROVENANCE Sale, Sotheby's, New York, 24 June 2008, lot 272 (as Attributed to Peeter Gysels, with a note suggesting an attribution to Jan Brueghel II) Sale, Bonhams, London, 9 December 2009, lot 44 Where purchased by the present owner The present landscape, which may have originally been larger on the right, compares favourably to two works by Bredael which were previously with Galerie d'Art St. Honoré, Paris (see: K. Ertz and C. Nitze Ertz, Josef van Bredael (Lingen, 2006), cat. no. 130 and 136, ill. pl. 100 and 104).

Description:
Josef van Bredael (1688-1739 Paris) A river landscape with boats by a village oil on copper 11 x 14½ in. (28 x 36.9 cm.) Private collection, Belgium. From a family of Flemish painters that included his brother Jan Pieter, Josef van Bredael was primarily a landscape artist. Beginning in 1706, at the age of eighteen, he spent four years copying works by Jan Breughel I, Philips Wouverman and other artists for the Antwerp dealer J. de Witte. In 1735, Van Bredael moved to Paris where he enjoyed the patronage of the Duke of Orléans. The present work displays the keen observation of the natural world and high quality of execution that places Van Bredael among the best imitators of Jan 'Velvet' Breughel, alongside Pieter Gysels, Theobald Michau and Mathys Schoevaerdts.
