Petrus van Schendel (Terheide 1806–1870 Brussels) Night market in Rotterdam, signed P. van Schendel. fct, oil on panel, 66x51cm, framed, (GG) Provenance: Sotheby\’s, London, 15 October 1975, lot 184; Christie\’s, London, 17 June 1994, lot 35; Sotheby\’s, New York, 9 February 1999, lot 9; European Private collection Exhibited: Breda, Breda\’s Museum and Luxembourg, Villa Vauban, Petrus van Schendel: Master of the Evening light/ Die Farben der Nacht. Der Maler Petrus van Schendel. 2012–2013. Catalogued and illustrated in: Jan de Meere, Petrus van Schendel: een leven tussen licht en donker, 2012, p. 31, ill. 45. We are grateful to Dr. Jan de Meere who confirmed the authenticity on the basis of the original. Petrus van Schendel lived with his family in Rotterdam at No. 37 Hoogstraat, which runs to the old centre of the city. In this street there were many prominent buildings, such as the Town Hall, which served as a background for many paintings by Van Schendel. There were also several different markets on Hoogstraat, such as the linen market and the cheese market, all of which served as inspiration for van Schendel, as well as three churches: the Protestant church on the east side, the Walloon church on the west side and St Dominic\’s Catholic Church on opposite side, which represented the three main religious groups of the Netherlands during this period. The women are positioned on a bridge in the foreground. From the design of the railings, it appears to be the Roobrug bridge in De Nieuwe Haven. The main source of light is the candle held by the seated woman, which illuminates the figure to her right and the basket of eggs and poultry in the foreground. Another source of light of cooler tones is the intense silvery moonlight above the tower. The present lot can be considered one of Van Schendel\’s best works from Rotterdam.

Description:
Elegant company watching fireworks in a park Signed l.l. Oil on panel, 18.8 x 29.2 cm Provenance: Private collection, the Netherlands N.B.: Petrus van Schendel was a unique painter, who acquired great fame both nationally and internationally. Not only his market scenes at moonlight and candlelight were immensely popular, but also his compositions centered around oil lamps, gaslight, fireworks and even electric light. In the middle of the 19th century, Van Schendel would become one of the most prospering painters in the Netherlands, with (inter)national royalty and important private collectors as his clientele. In this painting, fireworks are the source of light. Fireworks were first imported to Europe in the 13th century, but only in later times it was used to officially ring in the new year. In the 19th century, fireworks were used for celebrations in the richer parts of society, as can be seen in this work. Lot: 35: Petrus van Schendel (Terheijden 1806 - 1870 Brussels)

Description: Signed lower right: P. van Schendel Certificate Dr. Jan M. M. de Meere ORT UND DATUM FOLGENPetrus van Schendel was already famed among his contemporaries for his works depicting nighttime scenes. These compositions all focussed on lighting effects as their principal component - moonlight, oil lamps, torches, candles, gas lights, and petroleum. The present work, depicting the winter festival in the zoological gardens in Brussels, was painted towards the end of the artist's career, in around 1869/1870. He described the composition in his inventory of 1869 as follows: \“You see Bengal fires, but mainly electric light.\” The final version of this painting no longer exists. The present work is an oil sketch for it, apparently made shortly before. It depicts the crowds at the winter festival, the moon in the night sky, and various small lights and fires, but the electric light on the left side of the image provides the main source of illumination. Petrus van Schendel appears to have still been working on the completion of his painting in 1870, as in April of that year the artist requested for the Zoological gardens to be illuminated with electric light again so that he could study the light effects one more time.
