As important social and theoretically based discipline, they were now worthy image contentsThe present painting depicting an allegory of painting is the work of a German artist from the period around 1820. The sitters can be identified with the Polish Prince Henryk Ludwik Lubomirski (1777-1850) and his future wife Teresa Czartoryska (1785-1868).

The artwork, on which the boy is working, is supported by the young princess; in her other hand, she holds a spatula to mix the colors. On the wall hangs an already finished work of art that alludes again to the refined art of painting.The canvas has been laid down on hardboard.

It depicts a wide coastal landscape with a deep horizon and a calm sea, which is lined with a number of sailing and fishing boats. The Netherlands marine painting genre saw its first golden period already in the 17th century and can be regarded as an expression of the self-understanding of a naval nation. For this reason it was always appreciated and remained a lucrative genre for artists. With Romanticism and Historicism in the 19th century, many marine painters were interested in their national past and re-interpreted known maritime subjects.The canvas used to be widely torn lower right; the affected areas have been restored, retouched and supported with a larger piece of linen from the backside. The mentioned areas of retouching are slightly discolored and therefore visible to the naked eye. Besides, there is small hole in the lower part of the depiction. Smaller scattered damages to the canvas have also been restored, retouched and supported by smaller pieces of linen from the verso. There are light marks along the edges of the canvas due to the pressure of the stretcher. Accordingly, the paint surface is slightly affected, where the wooden frame has rubbed. The varnish is clearly dirty and inspection under UV light reveals older retouchings to the areas of the sky and to the lower details of the subject. The wooden frame is gilded and only shows small traces of age and use.

Several areas of the country had never been painted before and were unknown to most of the city's residents which is why the brothers Tschernezoff had great success. Pushkin for example owned a painting by Nikanor that hung in his study. Nikanor himself got a scholarship for the academy in St. Petersburg in 1823 where he studied under Maxim Nikiforovich Vorobiev (1787-1855). Together with his brother he finished the academy in 1827, both leaving with gold medals. Grigory was engaged as a court painter, whereas Nikanor lived in the Crimea from 1833 to 36 where he worked for the Russian General Governor. During this time he travelled along the Black Sea and got as far as Turkey. Since 1837, the brothers Tschernezoff worked together and so they travelled along the river Volga in 1838, painting panoramic views of both shores. Paintings by Nikanor can today be found in the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg and in 1999 the exhibition 'The Brothers Tschernezoff and Pushkin' was held there in honour of Pushkin's 200th birthday.

Description: Oil on canvas Russia, late 19th century After Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky (1817-1900) - Russian marine painter Inscribed in Cyrillic lower right 'Aivazovsky'Elaborate museum level framing Overall dimensions, framed: 136 x 173.5 cmProvenance: Private collection, GermanyThe present depiction of a dramatic shipwreck before a rocky coast of the Crimea was already painted in the late 19th century. It is closely related to Marine depictions by Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky and is presumably the work of an artist active in Aivazovsky's circle. The artist most likely had a number of students and contemporary copyists; works similar to the present painting often fetch up to 50,000 Euros at international auctionsThe present work was painted by a Russian artist active in the late 19th century. The composition is deeply influenced by the motifs of the Russian marine painter Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky, who was a famous and very sought after painter already in his lifetime. His preserved oeuvre is above-average in size, leading to the assumption that the artist had a number of students and followers or even maintained a workshop producing paintings similar in size, look and quality. Accordingly, it was a common practice to render these works with the artist's 'signature' or to inscribe them with 'Aivazovsky' later. Today, these paintings are also very sought after collectable items on the international art market and often fetch up considerable bidding prices, as long as they are in top quality and date to the life time of the artist. The elaborate museum level framing delicately contributes to the beauty of the painting offered here.The painting is inscribed in Cyrillic lower right 'Aivazovsky'. There are light damages to the upper edge due to the pressure of a former stretcher from the reverse.

Description: Oil on canvas, relined Netherlands, 17th century Attributed to Johan Le Ducq (1629-1676/77) - Dutch artist Overall dimensions, framed: 95 x 93 cm Good conditionProvenance: Private collection, Germany A vivid representation of daily life during the Thirty Years War The present painting is attributed to the Dutch painter Johan Le Ducq and shows a colorful war still life in the center of a guardroom scene with cavaliers and peasants resting in the domestic interior in the background. The subject matter and the overall dark brown palette of the present painting, punctuated with bright color, is characteristic for Dutch painting around the middle of the 17th Century. Genre painting involving low class society, especially peasants but also more elevated class exponents, became more and more popular throughout the 17th century in the Netherlands. These pictures usually depict scenes of everyday life set in domestic interiors or in the countryside. Scholars are still debating whether they bear a metaphorical meaning and hidden messages, or just feature a close depiction of contemporary events at the time of the Thirty Years War. In both cases they could have been associated with health, pleasure and liberty.The canvas has been relined and is well presented. The impasto is still fresh in the lighter pigments with the fine details still in good order. Inspection under UV light reveals retouching and lines of strengthening to the background, figures and to the darker details of the still life. The wooden frame is in good condition with only small traces of wear. The framed work measures 95 x 93 cm and the size of the stretcher is 83.5 x 81 cm.Johan Le Ducq (1629-1676/77)Johan Le Ducq received his artistic training under the Dutch painter Paulus Pieterszoon Pooter (1625-1654), when the master was active in The Hague between 1649 and 1652. In 1656, Ducq became a co-founder of the guild 'Confrérie Pictura', an artist's association exclusively reserved for professional painters. Four years later Ducq was also appointed member of the local Guild of Saint Luke. At the beginning of the 1670s, Johan Le Ducq abortively ended his career as a painter and joined the army. Johan Le Ducq was mainly active as an animal and landscape painter and etcher. His works can be found, for instance, at the Mauritshuis in The Hague.

Description: Auction announcements 16th June 2014 Lot 36: A technical analysis - see attachment with the images - has resulted in a dating into the late 19th Century. Oil on canvas Italy, 17th century Tuscan SchoolBoth inscribed in cartouches lower center; one 'CITRI' and the other 'ET AUREA' Overall dimensions, framed: each 74 x 94.5 cm Provenance: Private collection, Germany The motifs are related to the Florentine taste for the scientific classification of natureThis extremely decorative pendant, depicting of lemon and orange plants, was painted by an artist of the Tuscan School active in the 17th century. Both depictions display a cartouche at the lower center, respectively inscribed with a carefully selected Latin word; the lemon still life hereby forms the beginning and reads 'CITRI' (Latin for 'citrus fruits'), followed by the orange still life reading 'ET AUREA' (Latin for 'and gold'). Oranges and lemons are immemorial symbols of the continuity of life and also play a central role in Greco-Roman mythology: The story of Hercules states that oranges and lemons were stolen by him in the garden of the Hesperides and then brought to Tuscan territory. In fact, citrus fruits still dominate the image of gardens in Tuscany and therefore it seems not surprising that they also appear in stylized form in the coat of arms of the Medici family who were among the most powerful dynasties in Europe and provided a number of Grand Dukes of Tuscany.Both paintings are well presented and the impasto is still fresh in the lighter tones. They seem to have had little intervention in the past. Inspection under UV light reveals a number of infillings to the craquelure and scattered areas of old retouching. Each wooden frame shows clear traces of age and use and measures 74 x 94.5 cm. The stretchers are mounted behind the frames, respectively, and therefore correspond in size.

In Paris he opened a studio, which specialized in the still life genre - inspired by the Flemish and Dutch tradition. Besides painting, he successfully worked as an art dealer and was in close contact with the artists of the Paris neighbourhood of Saint- Germain, which was a well-known artist community at that time. Through the marriage with the widow Marie Guilbert he became the stepfather and mentor of Louise Moillon, one of the most famous French still-life painters of the 17th Century. Garnier's works are characterised by a rejection of all ornamental and purely decorative effects. He was fascinated by the simple reality and painted mainly compositions with red fruits such as strawberries or cherries. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

Between 1640 and 1644, Everdingen traveled to Norway and Sweden, and this trip deeply influenced his output. Everdingen has painted several Norwegian landscapes - a subject that must have seemed exotic to his Dutch countrymen. The present work is closely based on other compositions. The coloring, the use of light and the almost monochrome rocky landscape set against a cloudy sky are typical for the oeuvre of the artist.The painting is mounted in a carved wood frame. The canvas has been relined. The paint surface is rather thin to the darker tones. There is extensive retouching to the sky and to the foreground, as well as lines of strengthening to the darker details of the landscape. The frame shows minor wear. The overall dimensions, framed, are 66 x 54.5 cm. The stretcher frame measures 50 x 38 cm.Allart van Everdingen (1621-1675)Allart (Aldert) van Everdingen was a Dutch painter who studied with Roelant Savery in Utrecht and Pieter de Molijn in Haarlem.

He also painted some marines, mainly in his early period. Between 1640 and 1644, he made trips to Sweden and probably Norway. The rocky mountains, the forests, the waterfalls and the sea surges of Scandinavia deeply influenced his output. In 1645, Everdingen was admitted to the Haarlem Guild of St. Luke, but moved to Amsterdam in 1651.Besides paintings, Everdingen was active as an etcher. Today, his works can be found in high-ranking museums, including the Gemäldegalerie in Dresden, the Munich Pinakothek, the Louvre in Paris and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. His works give evidence of a high artistic quality, having inspired such famous artists as Jacob von Ruisdael (1628/29-1682) from Haarlem.

Description: Oil on canvas, relined Italy, 18th century North Italian SchoolOverall dimensions: 101.5 x 127 cm Attractive Cappricio landscape with architectural elementsThe present piece was presumably painted by a North Italian artist active in the 18th century. It depicts a classical capriccio with a bathing scene of Bathsheba, the mother of King Solomon of Israel. A capriccio is an architectural fantasy landscape, including buildings, archaeological remains and other architectural elements in a fictional and often fantastical combination. Capricci could also be fitted with decorative figures that should animate the scenery in a playful way. The tradition of capriccio painting developed form the French classicist artists Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) and Claude Lorrain (1600-1682) and became very popular during the 18th century.The canvas has been relined and shows a number of scratches and smaller damages, as visible in the illustration. The varnish is uneven. The paint surface has been consolidated and is thin in parts. The thick varnish hinders the inspection under UV light, but it is still possible to see lines of strengthening to the figures as well as areas of restoration affecting much of the architecture and the background. The size of the stretcher is 101.5 x 127 cm. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
