Jan Van Huysum (1682-1749) Workshop Of Arnold Boonen (1669-1729) 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.

BROTHER HOWARD CARTER
Howard Carter was born on May 9, 1874, in Kensington, London. His father Samuel Carter was a successful artist. Howard was a sickly child, and was sent to live with his aunts in Norfolk. He had private home schooling, and had an artistic streak from an early age. When his father painted a portrait of a well-known Egyptologist, the young Howard's interest was sparked.
Howard Carter first went to Egypt in 1891 as a young 17 year old artist hired to sketch.
In 1907, Carter was hired by wealthy English aristocrat Lord Carnarvon, who was fascinated by Egyptology. With Carnarvon's backing, Carter led the excavation of Egyptian nobles' tombs. In 1914, Carnarvon received a license to dig at a site where it was believed the tomb of King Tutankhamun rested and discovered the chamber in 1922.On Feb 16th. 1923, Carter opened the innermost chamber and found the sarcophagus of King Tut.

King Henry Seventh After Hans Holbein The Younger Rare Surviving Oil Portrait Painting Circa 1600-1625
MAGNIFICENT IMPORTANT OIL PORTRAIT PAINTING OF KING HENRY VII ( 7TH )
Estimated Dateline Early 17th Century ( 1625 )
RARE SURVIVING COPY (LATER CUT DOWN) AFTER HANS HOLBEIN THE YOUNGERS WHITEHALL PALACE DYNASTY MURAL OF(1536-37)WITH LATER ADDITION OF CROWN.
-
An impressive grand scale oil portrait on canvas of the King standing three-quarter length in a lavish interior and wearing a gold ermine lined cloak and black cap, unusually with a rare painted image of the post medieval crown at his side
-
This composition is derived from the 'Dynasty Portrait' in which Henry VIII in 1537 commissioned Hans Holbein the Younger to create a mural of the Tudor dynasty to commemorate his son Edwards birth.
-
Henry VIII ‘inherited’ Whitehall Palace after Cardinal Wolsey’s death in 1529. He spent a considerable amount of money on it and it was regarded as the largest 23 acre palace in Europe.
-
It was here that Holbein created his largest and most important royal commission, the Whitehall mural executed in 1536, in which Henry was portrayed with his Queen Jane Seymour and his parents, Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. Sadly the palace burned down on 4-5 January 1698 when a laundry maid left washing drying in front of an open fire.
-
Luckily, in 1667 the Flemish artist Remigius van Leemput (an assistant of Van Dyck) had produced a small copy of the great wall painting. It measured 88.9 x 98.7cm. This reduced version was created at the command of Leemput’s royal master King Charles II.
-
The painting included Latin verses(originally painted on the front of rostrum/but not shown in our version) directing praise at the two male rulers.
-
Paintings of the Kings and Queens of England such as this, or 'Long Gallery Sets' as they were known, were very popular in the 16th & 17th century & would be displayed in grand houses and castles.
-
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hans Holbein the Younger (c. 1497-1543) was a German artist and official court painter to King Henry VIII.
born 1497 - died November 29, 1543
Son of Hans Holbein the Elder, Hans Holbein the Younger was arguably one of the greatest portrait artists of his time. Born in Augsburg, Germany,he was taught by his father.
With a letter of introduction from his patron and mentor Erasmus, Holbein traveled to England for the first time in 1526. Holbein went on to paint many in the court of King Henry VIII, including Thomas More, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves.
Holbein later contracted what was likely the plague and died in 1547.

HENRY TUDOR 1457-1509 (Crowned King Henry VII)
-
Henry VII was not an obvious candidate for the throne when he seized it by victory over Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485,after the French readily supplied him with troops and equipment for an invasion
-
Henry was born in Wales, his mother was just 13 years old. His father Edmund died before he was born.
His claim to the throne came through Margaret Beaufort,his mother,descended from John of Gaunt.
Henry died in 1509 at Richmond Palace, he is buried at Westminster Abbey and was succeeded by Henry VIII.

David & Eva Garrick Sir Joshua Reynolds (Circle Of) 18thc Oil Portrait Painting
David Garrick and Eva Maria Garrick (née Veigel), richly dressed, and conversing in wooded landscape. The painting follows the fashionable convention of the conversation piece, a (usually) small-scale portrait showing two or more people, often out of doors,with the smaller versions being about the same size as a half-length portrait but in horizontal or "landscape" format.
-
Having had their origins in the 17th century Netherlands, they were also very fashionable in Britain in the 18th century.
They are distinguished by their portrayal of the group apparently engaged in genteel conversation or some activity, very often outdoors.
Typically the group will be members of a family, but friends may be included, and some groups are of friends, members of a society or hunt, or some other grouping.
-
Other notable artist working in this genre were Arthur Devis, William Hogarth, Johann Zoffany, and George Stubbs. The original is in the National Gallery London.
See last image
-
Garrick made his first appearance on the London stage in 1741. His distinguishing characteristic was what Samuel Johnson called his 'universality'. A close friend of Reynolds, he was painted by the artist on several occasions, notably as The Actor torn between Tragedy and Comedy, in 1762. In this portrait by the artist, David and Eva Garrick, the Viennese dancer whom he married in 1749, are depicted in the garden of their country house at Hampton in Middlesex.
-
Very finely depicted figures and attire. The facial features of the lady (lips, cheeks, nose) are remarkable. The impasto technique with the thickly applied paint is very effective and very beautiful.
Held in an excellent condition swept frame.
-
This exceptionally rare and fine example of one of Reynolds well known works is probably the only other in existence after the original bought by The National Gallery London in 1981.
-
We must say that in our opinion our recently acquired version could possibly be another work from Reynolds studio and possibly an earlier forerunner to his larger painting of Garrick.
The portrait we offer is technically not strictly a copy as the artist has painted Garricks Coat with just four upholstered large buttons,whereas the larger version in the National Gallery depicts Garrick with five buttons.
Surely the best copyists would not make such a basic mistake had they been carefully producing an accurate copy.This fact suggests that two versions were produced around the same time 1772 and that the smaller painting we offer for sale may in fact be an earlier sample of the work.
We only suggest this as a sensible analysis but do say our painting is definitely of the correct period around 1772 (late18thc) and that it has been produced by either Reynolds studio under his influence within his Circle or possibly by his studio assistant of many years Giuseppe Marchi.
The smaller version once scaled up would infact look visually incorrect to only have four buttons as the spacing of each button would have increased substantially and would continue to do so if enlarged even further.There are unlikely to be any other quality copies available to purchase,making our fine example a unique opportunity to buy a one off reduced version of one of Reynolds best known works
