ABOUT THE ARTIST
Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (born late December 1617, baptized January 1, 1618 – April 3, 1682) was a Spanish Baroque painter. Although he is best known for his religious works, Murillo also produced a considerable number of paintings of contemporary women and children. These lively, realist portraits of flower girls, street urchins, and beggars constitute an extensive record of everyday life of his times.
-
LIFE: Murillo was born to Gaspar Estaban Murillo and Maria Perez. He may have been born in Seville or in Pilas, a smaller Andalusian town.[1] It is clear that he was baptized in Seville in 1618, the youngest son in a family of fourteen. His father was a barber and surgeon. His parents died when Murillo was still very young, and the artist was largely brought up by his aunt and uncle. Murillo married Beatriz Cabrera in 1645; their first child, named Maria, was born shortly after their marriage. The mother and daughter became the subjects of two of his paintings: The Virgin of the Rosary[2] & Madonna / Child.
-
CAREER: Murillo began his art studies under Juan del Castillo in Seville. Murillo became familiar with Flemish painting; the great commercial importance of Seville at the time ensured that he was also subject to influences from other regions. His first works were influenced by Zurbarán, Jusepe de Ribera and Alonzo Cano.
-
In 1642, at the age of 26, he moved to Madrid, where he most likely became familiar with the work of Velázquez, and would have seen the work of Venetian and Flemish masters in the royal collections; the rich colors and softly modeled forms of his subsequent work suggest these influences.[2] He returned to Seville in 1645. In that year, he painted thirteen canvases for the monastery of St. Francisco el Grande in Seville. He died in Seville in 1682 at the age of 64.
-
LEGACY: Murillo had many pupils and followers. The prolific imitation of his paintings ensured his reputation in Spain and fame throughout Europe, and prior to the 19th century his work was more widely known than that of any other Spanish artist.

Medici Society Print c1916 No.46 Flemish Interior Scene After Original Oil Painting By Pieter de Hooch Dated 1663
ORIGINAL MEDICI PRINT [ Preserved Perfectly Under Glass , Sealed with Identification Labels Verso.
Titled ' Interior,With A Women Peeling Apples ' After the original oil portrait painting executed in 1663 by Pieter de Hooch.
-
A SHORT HISTORY OF MEDICI
The Medici Society Ltd was founded in 1908 by Philip Lee Warner and Eustace Gurney. The company's original aim was to bring artists' work to the appreciation of a wider public through technically cutting edge high-end colour reproductions, with subjects chosen for their artistic value, beauty or sentiment sold "for the lowest price commercially possible".
-
The name Medici was chosen as a homage to the great Florentine family who did so much to encourage art in the Italian Renaissance. The profile of Lorenzo de' Medici (1449 - 1492), known as Lorenzo the Magnificent, was incorporated into the trade mark.
-
ABOUT ARTIST
Pieter de Hooch (Dutch: ['pit?r d? ?o?x], also spelled "Hoogh" or "Hooghe"; 20 December 1629 (baptized) – 24 March 1684 (buried)) was a Dutch Golden Age painter famous for his genre works of quiet domestic scenes with an open doorway. He was a contemporary of Jan Vermeer in the Delft Guild of St. Luke, with whom his work shares themes and style.
-
De Hooch was born in Rotterdam to Hendrick Hendricksz de Hooch, a bricklayer, and Annetge Pieters, a midwife. He was the eldest of five children and outlived all of his siblings. Little is known of his early life and most archival evidence suggests he worked in Rotterdam, Delft, and Amsterdam. According to his first biographer Arnold Houbraken, he studied art in Haarlem under the landscape painter Nicolaes Berchem at the same time as Jacob Ochtervelt and was known for his "kamergezichten" or "room-views" with ladies and gentlemen in conversation.
-
De Hooch was married in Delft in 1654 to Jannetje van der Burch, by whom he fathered seven children. While in Delft, de Hooch is also believed to have learned from the painters Carel Fabritius and Nicolaes Maes, who were early members of the Delft School. He became a member of the painters' guild of Saint Luke in 1655 (two years after Vermeer)
-
The early work of de Hooch was mostly composed of scenes of soldiers and peasants in stables and taverns in the manner of Adriaen van Ostade, though he used these to develop great skill in light, color, and perspective rather than to explore an interest in the subject matter.
-
After starting his family in the mid-1650s, he switched his focus to domestic scenes. These were possibly of his own family, though his works of well-to-do women breastfeeding and caring for children could also indicate that he had attended his mother on her rounds as a midwife.
-
His work showed astute observation of the mundane details of everyday life while also functioning as well-ordered morality tales. These paintings often exhibited a sophisticated and delicate treatment of light similar to those of Vermeer, who lived in Delft at the same time as de Hooch.

Studio Of Sir Thomas Lawrence Oil Portrait Of Angelic Children
This is a beautiful large scale early 19th century oil portrait painting on canvas depicting three young angelic looking children,‘ studio of ‘ Sir Thomas Lawrence being attributed to one of his pupils and possibly produced under his influence.
-
Lawrence is well known for producing a portrait of The Calmady Children (Emily, 1818–?1906, and Laura Anne, 1820–1894) Emily and Laura Anne were the children of Charles Calmady of Langdon Court in Devonshire. Their portrait— shown at the Royal Academy, and engraved under the title Nature—has always been one of Lawrence's most popular works.
-
This fine example is on display in The Metropolitan Museum Of Art In New York and bears similarities to the painting we have offered for sale. His studio produced many copies of his best known works to meet demand and these were often completed by his pupils or studio assistants.
-
In his latter years the artist struggled financially and with his health and so moved back to his family address in Greek St London from where he tried to keep up with demands for paintings.
-
When he eventually died in 1830, there were many unfinished paintings found in his studio which were completed by his pupils and it’s probable that many of these paintings were sold on as originals.
-
It is documented that whilst he was alive, one of his pupils completed his portrait depicting Mrs. Brandling and so there is certainly a strong possibility that our portrait has been produced from his studio under his influence and perhaps with an helping hand in the accomplished composition, for both he and his pupils engaged in finishing many of each other’s works.
-
George Henry Harlow was also a pupil but only stayed within his workshop for a short period of 18 months and left after a dispute relating to an altered depiction of one of his well known original works.
-
Many artists have tried to reproduce almost identical works, more so with the Calmady Children, but our example is not a copy of this famous portrait but possesses all the attributes of his hand in manner and character,but is itself an original of the time the artist lived and is a rare find to be able to purchase today.

ABOUT :
The National Guard (French: Garde nationale) is a French military, gendarmerie, and police reserve force, active in its current form since 2016 but originally founded in 1789 after the French Revolution.
For most of its history the National Guard, particularly its officers, has been widely viewed as loyal to middle-class interests. It was founded as separate from the French Army and existed both for policing and as a military reserve. However, in its original stages from 1792 to 1795, the National Guard was perceived as revolutionary and the lower ranks were identified with sans-culottes. It experienced a period of official dissolution from 1827 to 1830, but was reestablished. Soon after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870–71, the National Guard in Paris again became viewed as dangerously revolutionary, which contributed to its dissolution in 1871.
-
In 2016, France announced the reestablishment of the National Guard in response to a series of terrorist attacks in the country.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
-
Joseph Nigg (13 October 1782 – 19 September 1863) was an Austrian painter, with painting on porcelain a specialty.
-
Born in Vienna, Nigg studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with Johann Baptist Drechsler. From 1800 to 1843, Nigg worked as a flower painter in a Viennese porcelain factory. Beginning in 1835, this post also involved holding classes in painting at the factory.
-
With the advent of the Biedermeier Era, flower painting became immensely popular and was also to be found on large porcelain plaques.
A piece of this sort, thirty inches in height, was presented by Nigg, on behalf of the Viennese factory, at The Great Exhibition of 1851 in London.
-
In addition to working in porcelain, Nigg also created oil paintings, watercolours, and pastel drawings. Two of his paintings, "Grandmother's Bouquet I" and "Grandmother's Bouquet II" have found enduring popularity as poster and print reproductions.
Nigg died in Vienna in 1863.

Jan Van Huysum (1682-1749) Workshop Of Arnold Boonen (1669-1729) Fine 18thc Oil Portrait Painting
ABOUT THE SITTER ( Identified As:)
Jan van Huysum also spelled Huijsum (15 April 1682 – 8 February 1749), was himself a painter of Dutch origin.
( Last Image 6 Shows Sitter In Later Years Of Age )
-
He was the brother of Jacob van Huysum, the son of the flower painter Justus van Huysum, and the grandson of Jan van Huysum I, who is said to have been expeditious in decorating doorways, screens and vases. A picture by Justus is preserved in the gallery of Brunswick, representing "Orpheus and the Beasts in a wooded landscape", and here we have some explanation of his son's fondness for landscapes of a conventional and Arcadian kind for Jan van Huysum, though skilled as a painter of still life, believed himself to possess the genius of a landscape painter. Jan van Huysum's daughter, Francina Margaretha van Huysum, was also a flower painter and may have assisted her father in his work.
-
Half of his pictures in public galleries are landscapes, views of imaginary lakes and harbours with impossible ruins and classic edifices, and woods of tall and motionless trees-the whole very glossy and smooth, and entirely lifeless. The earliest dated work of this kind is that of 1717, in the Louvre, a grove with maidens culling flowers near a tomb, ruins of a portico, and a distant palace on the shores of a lake bounded by mountains.
-
Some of the finest of van Huysum's fruit and flower pieces have been in English private collections: those of 1723 in the earl of Ellesmere's gallery, others of 1730-1732 in the collections of Hope and Ashburton. One of the best examples is now in the National Gallery, London (1736–1737). No public museum has finer and more numerous specimens than the Louvre
-
ANALYSIS OF PORTRAIT (Est.c1720)
A good quality bust length portrait of Jan Van Huysum 1682-1749 depicted in a brown coat, white neckerchief, and red mantle. He wears a voluptuous blonde wig with a long club-tied lovelock to the side. The painting is comparable with works by the Dutch prolific painter Arnold Boonen on the ground of the handling, pose, and costume. It dates to about 1720 and appears to be by an artist from his circle most notably Philip van Dijk (1683-1753) who was his pupil. Van Dijk went on to become official painter to the court of Landgrave William VIII of Hesse and then to Prince of Orange William IV.
-
ABOUT THE ARTIST ( Workshop Of Arnold Boonen )
Philip van Dijk 1683-1753 was a Pupil of Arnold Boonen in Amsterdam, and also became a student of Adriaen van der Werff in Rotterdam, where he married in 1708.
-
Later the same year, he became a member of the Guild of St. Luke in Middelburg. In 1718 he became a member of the Confrerie Pictura, where he became a popular painter. Much later he returned to teach at the drawing academy and had various students
-
MANNER OF Arnold Boonen (1669–1729), the well-regarded portraitist born in Dordrecht and active in Amsterdam from 1696. He was a pupil first of Arnold Verbuis, and then of Godefried Schalken.
Boonen painted genre pictures in the style of the latter, representing subjects by candlelight, but met with such encouragement in portrait painting that he devoted himself almost wholly to that branch of art. His style was well adapted to succeed in it. An excellent colourist, a faithful designer of his model, and highly skilled, he was soon distinguished as one of the ablest artists of his day.
-
Boonen painted some of the greatest members of society such as the Elector of Brandenburg, later King Frederick I of Prussia, the Duke of Marlborough, the Russian Tsar Peter the Great, and Prince William IV of Orange-Nassau.

Moseley Pool Autumn River Landscape 19thc Oil Painting By Mary Groves
We are offering this lovely oil on canvas by the artist Mary Groves, who has signed the painting in the lower right hand corner.and entitled on the edge of the stretcher 'Moseley Pool'.
-
The painting depicts the bank of the pool, with the waters reflecting the trees to the right in resplendent autumnal colours.
-
LOCATION
Moseley Park and Pool is part of the former estate of Moseley Hall, which was rebuilt in 1792-6 - the park being designed by Humphrey Repton.
-
The estate began to be split up for housing in the second half of the 19th Century and the portion that is now the park was split from the rest by a road and some local landowners formed the Moseley Park and Pool Company Ltd. in 1898 to protect the land from further development.
-
The land amounts to the lake and eleven acres. In 2006, the limited company was converted to a charitable Trust and is now run by volunteer trustees, access being on an annual membership basis.
-
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mary Groves was born in Farnham, Surrey in the second quarter of 1854. She studied at Lambeth School of Art, Miller's Lane, where she won a bronze medal in 1883 and later at the Royal Academy Schools.
In the census of 1891, she was living with her widowed mother at 58 Jeffery’s Road, Clapham, London and is listed as an artist painter and living on her own means.
In 1901, at the age of 47, she is living at the same address with her brother and his wife, again listed as an artist. By 1911, she is still living with her brother, but at 1 Sibella Road, Clapham, London SW.
-
(As her sisters-in-law came from Birmingham, this may be how she came to paint the Moseley pool.) We can find no trace of her death date, but, as she wasn't listed in the 1939 Register, we believe it to be in the early to mid thirties.
-
EXHIBITIONS
In 1906, she has a joint exhibition at the Dore Gallery in London, where it was commented that Miss Mary Groves 'exhibits several commendable studies of picturesque old buildings in Belgium'.
-
A photogravure of her RA exhbiited paintings 'Sing unto the Lord', was offered for sale by the Illustrated London News for 4 guineas for Artist's Proofs and 1 guinea for prints.
-
There are 3 of her paintings in the National Collection, 2 held by Isle of Wight Council and 1 'Impudent Hussies' by St. Helens Council.

Kathleen Winifred Molesworth Aged 3 ( B.1896-d.1973 ) 19thc Oil Portrait Painting
Portrait Oil Kathleen Winifred Molesworth Aged 3
-
I am delighted to offer for sale this charming oil portrait on canvas laid to board.
-
The portrait depicts an half length oil portrait of Kathleen Winifred Molesworth aged 3 years, according to the information hand written on the back, although the artist is unknown, may possibly have been painted by a close family member.
-
She is wearing a cream dress with smocking and puffed sleaves and has shoulder length fair hair with a fringe.
-
Kathleen Winifred Molesworth was born in Salem, Madras, India, on 15th June, 1896. the daughter of Surgeon Captain, later Colonel, William Molesworth and his wife Winifred Anne nee Weekes.
-
Her father was in the Indian Medical Service and achieved the letters MB, BS, MRCS, LRCP, CIE & CBE after his name.
The family are listed in Burke's Peerage. In common with many children of parents resident in India, Kathleen was sent to Britain to boarding school at Bayham House in Folkestone, where she was in 1911 at the age of 14.
-
On 18th October 1919 in Simla, Bengal, she married Alfred Alyson Fennal Michin, who was a Conservator in the Indian Forest Service.
She travelled between the UK and India frequently, as her eldest son Patrick Molesworth Minchin was born on 27th August 1920 in Madras, her younger son Henry Desmond Penkivel Minchin was born in Sussex in 1923.
-
Patrick was a Captain in the Indian Army in WWII, but lived until 2nd July 2007 and is buried in Edrom Church, Duns, Berwickshire, along with his mother, near to the family home Cruicksfield, which is now a B listed Scottish mansion with farm attached.
-
Henry Desmond Penkivel, known as Desmond, was a Lieutenant in the 6th Battalion King's Own Scottish Borders and was killed in action in WWII at Le Haut Du Bosq, Normandy on 1st July 1944.
-
He is buried in Bayeux War Cemetery. He and the 16 men who died with him in this action, are commemorated in a memorial window and plaque in Christ Church, Duns, presumably commissioned by his parents.
He is also listed on a memorial plaque in Bonkyl Kirk in the parish of Bonkyl & Preston.
-
Kathleen outlived her husband, who died in 1973 aged 85, but by 1976, was living at Cruicksfield, Duns, the family seat, where she died on 17th March 1998 and was buried at Edrom Church, along with her father and eldest son. (Her eldest son had two sons, one of whom died before the age of 1 and the other died at 51 without issue, so Kathleen's line died out, so pehaps this is why her portrait came to the market.)

ABOUT
Pius IX was the Holy Father of the Catholic Church longer than any other pope, from 1846 to 1878. It was a difficult time to be the leader of the Church because of political conflicts between nations and religious arguments about the Church’s place in the world. No matter what kinds of problems the pope and the Church faced, Pius IX always turned to God for help and direction.
-
Pius IX was born in Italy in 1791. His name was Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti. Giovanni grew up wanting to be a priest and he followed that goal step by step until he was ordained in 1819. His first assignment was in an orphanage, where he was known for the love he shared with the children. Soon he was sent to South America to work for an important Church official.
-
After Father Giovanni returned home, he was made the archbishop of a diocese. When a revolution broke out, Giovanni was the peacemaker. He convinced the two sides to stop fighting. Soon he was assigned to a larger diocese and was named a cardinal. When Pope Gregory XVI died, Cardinal Mastai-Ferretti was elected pope. He chose the name Pius IX.
-
We attach an image in black and white from records in 1848 which demonstrate that our early portrait depicts the same Pope when he was first elected head of the Catholic Church.
-
Pope Pius IX was the last Pope-King to reign over the city of Rome.
-
In July 1870, at the First Vatican Council, declared Pope Pius IX infallible.
-
In August 1870, Napoleon III declared war on Prussia.
-
In September 1870, Rome was liberated by Italian troops.
-
Pope Pius IX sought asylum in ENGLAND!!
-
In 1860, things looked very bleak for the Pope and the Papal States. At that time, Cardinal Antonelli, on behalf of Pope Pius IX, sought asylum in ENGLAND for the Pope should he be forced to evacuate Rome.
-
The last Papal sovereign wanted to live under the government of the gracious sovereign, Queen Victoria!!
