Description: and JAN VAN BALEN 1611 Antwerp - 1654 Antwerp In his expertise, Klaus Ertz dated the present painting to the late1640s, as ''one of the few examples of the collaboration of the painters Jan Breughel the Younger and Jan van Balen (1611 Antwerpen - 1654 Antwerpen)'' where the first was responsible for the landscape and animals, and the second for the figures. The artists' fathers Jan Brueghel the Elder and Hendrik van Balen were already very successful artists and therefore the sons received their first apprenticeships in their fathers' studios. Both sons travelled to Italy, Jan Brueghel the Younger from 1622 to 1625, when he returned after learning of the death of his father, and Jan van Balen from 1639 to 1641 when he also returned to Antwerp after his brother's death in Rome. The ''Allegory of the Water'' shows Amphitrite, the goddess of the sea, on the edge of a wooded landscape with a view over the sea. The picture is saturated with references to the element of water, from the various types of sealife, including flying fish, shells, crabs, coral or pearls. The precursor of this collaboration between the sons can be found in a collaboration by the fathers: this picture, painted in 1611, of the same theme, also displays a similar composition. This work is found today in the Galleria Doria Pamphilj in Rome. However the sons did not copy the picture, but instead borrowed from it to produce their own interpretation.

Description: BALEN, JAN VAN(1611 Antwerp 1654)The discovery of the infant Moses.Oil on panel. 33 x 26 cm. Expertise: Dr. Ursula Härting, 20.4.1990. Provenance: - Frye & Sohn, art dealers, Münster until 2007.- Acquired at the above art dealer's. European private collection. BALEN, JAN VAN(1611 Antwerpen 1654)Auffindung des Mosesknaben.Öl auf Holz. 33 x 26 cm.Gutachten: Dr. Ursula Härting, 20.4.1990. Provenienz:- Kunsthandel Frye & Sohn, Münster bis 2007.- Dort erworben, europäische Privatsammlung.Dieses qualitätsvolle Gemälde mit der Auffindung des Moses bezeichnet Dr. Ursula Härting nach Begutachtung des Originals als eine eigenhändige Arbeit des Antwerpener Malers Jan van Balen.Dargestellt ist die Auffindung des drei Monate alten Mosesknaben. Der Pharao hatte den Befehl erteilt, alle männlichen Neugeborenen der im ägyptischen Exil lebenden Israeliten zu töten und sie in den Nil zu werfen, aus Angst vor der zunehmenden Stärke des Volkes. Moses' Mutter konnte ihren Sohn jedoch in einem Papyruskästchen an dem Ufer des Nils aussetzen, wo die Pharaonentochter mit ihren Dienerinnen den Säugling fand. Moses' Schwester versprach der Tochter des Pharaos eine Amme für das Kind zu finden und so konnte Moses bei seiner leiblichen Mutter aufwachsen. Ursula Härting vermerkt in ihrem Gutachten, dass in dieser alttestamentarischen Szene ikonographisch eine Parallele zu dem bethlehemitischen Kindermord, dem Jesus glücklich entkam, verstanden wurde. Graziöse Frauenfiguren in heiterer Landschaft, Decolletés umschmeichelt von changierenden Stoffen machen den Reiz des Sujets aus. Grosse Sorgfalt verwendete Jan van Balen auf die Darstellung der gleissenden, vielfarbigen Gewänder, darunter fällt das Augenmerk im Besonderen auf das Kostüm der Pharaonentochter mit seiner subtilen Ornamentik, Perlen- und Pelzverzierung. Ferner weist Härting darauf hin, dass Jan van Balen bei dieser Komposition auf Motive aus einem Gemälde von Peter Paul Rubens 'Königin Tomiris mit dem Haupte des Kyros', von 1616/1617, zurückgreift. Allerdings verwendet Balen ausschliesslich die Figurengruppe um die Königin und setzt an Stelle des knieenden Dieners mit dem Haupt des Kyros hier die junge Frau mit dem Säugling. Aufgrund der farbigen Gestaltung des Gemäldes und der hellen Landschaftsdarstellung schlägt Ursula Härting eine Datierung in die 40er Jahre des 17. Jahrhunderts vor.

Lot 745: BRUEGHEL, JAN THE YOUNGER and BALEN, JAN VAN

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: BRUEGHEL, JAN THE YOUNGER and BALEN, JAN VAN (1601-1678/1611-1654). Allegory of Justice and Peace. Oil/cradled panel. Beautiful cabinet picture, executed by two of Antwerp's most famous painters of this period. The landscape is the work of Jan Brueghel the Younger, Jan Balen added the personifications of peace (with the olive branch) and justice (with the sword). The putto crowning the pair with a laurel wreath indicates the allegorical symbolism of the painting as a depiction of the victory of justice and peace. The subject probably refers to the 1609 cessation of hostilities agreed between the Spanish Netherlands and the rebellious Northern provinces. Probably commissioned by an important person who benefitted from this peace agreement. Expertise: Dr. Klaus Ertz, Lingen 2011. Rest. 25,7 x 40,3 cm
