The work depicts a picturesque river landscape with thunderclouds in the sky. The scenery is animated by a number of figures in simple costumes, going about their daily business. In the course of the industrialization and urbanization, the interest in untouched nature continuously increased in the course of the 19th century. The genre of landscape painting therefore experienced a great survival and was artistically interpreted in various ways.The work is in good condition considering its age. Inspection under UV light reveals smaller areas of retouching along the lower left edge and the upper center of the painting. Further retouchings have been made in the lower right corner, reaching up to the small figure of the shepherd. The whole depiction is also affected by scattered very small areas of retouching. The wooden frame is gilded and shows small traces of age and use. The framed work measures 44.5 x 64.5 cm and the size of the stretcher is 35.5 x 55.5 cm.Lucien Pierre Sergent (1849-1904)Lucien Pierre Sergent was born in Massy and received his artistic training under the painters Vauchelet Pils and Jean-Paul Laurens. Sergent was mainly active as a battle painter and executed vivid depictions of historical battlegrounds that were partly acquired by the French government. His works were internationally exhibited, including the Paris Salon and further exhibition in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Tokyo.

Description: Oil on canvas, relined Italy, mid-18th CenturyAttributed Pietro Longhi (1702-1785) - Italian painterExpertise of Giuliano Briganti (1987) availableExhibition: Mostra di Pittura Antica, Galleria d'arte al Corso, Triest 1942 (?), catalogue no. 76, with preface by D. FioccoGilded stucco frameOverall dimensions, with frame: 55 x 46 cmProvenance: From a Swiss private collectionPietro Longhi's representations of Venetian society are a significant source for the cultural history of VeniceThe present painting is attributed to the Italian painter Pietro Longhi (1702-1785). The authorship has been confirmed by a number of Italian scholars, including Giuliano Briganti. Longhi is recorded for his portraits and genre scenes of Venetian society, and his patrons included high-ranking Venetian families. Longhi visited the present theme in more occasions; other hunting scenes, dating from the 1760s are in the Pinacoteca Querini Stampalia in Venice, formerly in the Venetian Donà delle Rose Collection.The painting shows some wear due to its age. The canvas has been relined. In the center of the image a small tear is visible. There are slight areas of retouching to the edges and to the figure of the nobleman.

His patrons included high-ranking Venetian families, for example the Grimani, the Querini, and the Pisani.In 1756, he joined the 'Accademia di pittura e scultura' in Venice. Longhi's early paintings were inspired by the late-Baroque movement. The works of Giuseppe Maria Crespi, who had turned away from the traditions of academic painting, had a great impact on the young painter. Inspired by the innovative artist, Longhi started to paint genre scenes. His detailed, sometimes humorous depictions of Venetian society are a significant source for the cultural history of Venice.

Lot 87: Portrait of Otto von Glenck (?), after Heinrich Beltz, 19th C

by Auctionata

August 28, 2014, 6:00 PM CET

Berlin, Germany

Estimated Price: €960 - €1,200

Description: Oil on canvas Switzerland, 2nd half 19th CenturyCopy after Heinrich Beltz (1801-1869) - Portraitist of the 19th Century Presumably a portray of Otto von Glenck (1821-1891) - General manager of the saline in SchweizerhalleMarked and dated lower leftSmaller version of the same portrait, which is also offered at AuctionataOverall dimensions, framed: 63.5 x 53 cm (height x width)Good condition Object is regular taxed. Differential taxation is not possibleThis portrait of an elegantly dressed gentleman is a smaller version of the same painting that Heinreich Beltz created in 1855 and which is also on sale at Auctionata. Like the original, this oil painting is marked lower left with 'H. Beltz 1855'. Obviously this very finely executed copy was created a little bit later; in its picturesque quality it is hardly inferior to the original. Both portraits are an expression of the self-esteem of the emerging bourgeoisie in 19th Century. So a young, successful man of that time could easily have use for several self-portraits of the same type.According to the previous owner this portray represents a member of the Glenck family in Basle. It depicts most probably Otto von Glenck (1821-1891), who was director of the saline in Schweizerhalle, founded by his father Carl Christian Friedrich Genck. In Basle he gained great popularity for his engagement for a new theater and as the president of the theatre commission.The work is in a good condition with some traces of age and use. Accordingly, the colour is slightly crackled and shows small damages at the margins, which however are covered by the frame. The inscription „H. Beltz. 1855." is located at the lower left. The canvas measures 48 cm in height and 37.6 cm in width. The gilt frame measures 63.5 cm in height and 53 cm in width. Some of its front parts used to be broken and had to be restored.

Faberge' and by presenting this receipt, the above named partnership is committed to give Otto Bayer 3 fully paid for shares of the 'limited liability partnership K.

Faberge'' and countersigned by Karl's son Eugene, ''E. Faberge''. The following year, in 1917 during the Russian Revolution, the company was taken over by a ''Committee of the Employees of the Company K Faberge'' and then nationalized in 1918. The Faberges left Russia and Karl would die shortly thereafter in 1920. Document runs one-page on card-style stationery measuring 8.5'' x 11.
