        • Attributed to Petr Brandl (1668-1735). Head of an Apostle
          Mar. 13, 2024

          Attributed to Petr Brandl (1668-1735). Head of an Apostle

          Est: £700 - £1,000

          Attributed to Petr Brandl (1668-1735). Head of an Apostle * Attributed to Petr Brandl (1668-1735). Head of an Apostle, circa 1700, oil on canvas, head and shoulders portrait of a bearded older man wearing a heavy coat, face in half-profile to the left, areas of craquelure, very small chip (5 x 4 mm) to paint surface at top of head, heavily varnished, re-lined, canvas size 55.5 x 45.5 cm (22 x 18 ins), later gilt frame with framer’s label to verso (69 x 57 cm) QTY: (1) NOTE: A painter of the late Baroque, Petr Brandl was famous in his lifetime, but due to isolation behind the Iron Curtain rather forgotten until recently. A major collection of his work is held in the National Gallery of Prague, and the gallery is currently holding a major exhibition of Brandl’s work, Petr Brandl: The Story of a Bohemian. His work often employs strong chiaroscuro, areas of heavy impasto and very plastic as well as dramatic figures; he often modelled figures in clay before committing to canvas. The Head of an Apostle is typical of Brandl’s work - a full beard and a lined face, accentuated with the help of thick layers of paints, applied with energetic brushstrokes that help to capture the strong use of chiaroscuro. He painted numerous similar portraits of Apostles and Evangelists, including The Apostle Paul (National Gallery of Prague ascension number O 557), Simeon with the Infant Jesus (O 578), and Bust of a Discoursing Apostle (O 12889), all held in the collection of the National Gallery of Prague. The Apostle Paul is illustrated in Guide to the Picture Gallery of Prague Castle by Jaromir Neumann, number 65, page 67. We are grateful to Sir Timothy Clifford for the attribution and note for this lot.

        • Pieter Jan Brandl (1660/68-1735/39) zugeschr., 'Apostel Petrus' / 'Apostle Peter', um 1685-1695
          Jul. 17, 2021

          Pieter Jan Brandl (1660/68-1735/39) zugeschr., 'Apostel Petrus' / 'Apostle Peter', um 1685-1695

          Est: €390 - €780

          Technik: Öl auf Nadelholz, Signatur: verso signiert 'Brandl', Reste eines runden Stempels, Maße: 22 x 16,5 cm, Zustand: gut, Holzplatte min. gewölbt, keine Risse, Kommentar: Der in Prag geborene Historien- und Heiligenmaler erwirbt in seiner Jugend (1685-1691) bereits hervorragende, technische Kenntnisse als Schüler des Prager Hofmalers Christian Schröder/ Schröter. Hier genießt er für die Vollendung kirchlicher Aufträge und Porträtdarstellungen in der Manier eines Skreta ein gewisses Renommée. Im Anschluss arbeitet er in Klöstern und Schlössern. 1694 wird er Mitglied der Altstädter Malerzeche. In dieser Zeit sollen geschätzt kaum weniger als 500 Altarbilder entstanden sein. (vgl. ADB, 1876, Bd. 3, S. 237). Das Apostelthema (Petrus, Paulus) in größeren Formaten auf Leinwand und lockerem, freierem Duktus und einer ergreifenden Natürlichkeit und Vermenschlichung der Heiligen zeichnet sein Spätwerk aus. Sein 'Heiliger Petrus' auf Leinwand, 75 x 58,5 cm, zeigt das Petrusmotiv in einer Manier, die schon auf die Empfindsamkeit Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts vorausdeuten. + Technique: oil on coniferous wood, Signature: signed 'Brandl' on verso, Dimensions: 22 x 16,5 cm, Condition: good, wooden panel min. arched, no cracks, Comment: The Prague-born painter of history and saints already acquired excellent technical skills in his youth (1685-1691) as a pupil of the Prague court painter Christian Schröder/ Schröter. Here he enjoyed a certain reputation for the completion of ecclesiastical commissions and portraits in the manner of a Skreta. Afterwards he worked in monasteries and castles. In 1694 he became a member of the Altstädter Malerzeche. It is estimated that he painted no less than 500 altarpieces during this period. (see ADB, 1876, vol. 3, p. 237). The theme of the apostles (Peter, Paul) in larger formats on canvas and a looser, freer style and a touching naturalness and humanisation of the saints characterise his late work. His 'Saint Peter' on canvas, 75 x 58.5 cm, shows the Peter motif in a manner that already points ahead to the sensitivity of the mid-18th century.

        • PITTORE GENOVESE DEL XVII-XVIII SECOLO
          Jun. 15, 2021

          PITTORE GENOVESE DEL XVII-XVIII SECOLO

          Est: €2,000 - €3,000

          Testa di carattere (San Giacomo) Olio su tela, cm 60X50 Già attribuito a Petr Brandl (Praga, 1668 - Kutná Hora, 1735), in analogia con le teste di carattere dipinte dall'artista, l'opera in esame si deve ricondurre alla scuola genovese. Per qualità e conduzione pittorica sono evidenti i confronti con le opere di Bartolomeo Guidobono (Savona, 1654 - Torino, 1709), artefice che nel corso della sua carriera espresse eleganti opere di gusto rocaille ma non esitì a dipingere composizioni dall'intenso carattere neobarocco e tenebroso. Per quanto riguarda le tele di gusto settecentesco, che preannunciano gli esiti di Fragonard e Boucher, si evidenziano le suggestioni correggesche ed emiliane apprese durante il viaggio di studio giovanile a Parma. Le opere di sapore tenebroso, invece, riscoprono la tradizione naturalistica seicentesca di Bernardo Strozzi, Giovanni Battista Langetti, Pietro Paolo Raggi e le celebri teste rembrandtiane concepite da Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione. A questo proposito sono utili i riferimenti con il Diogene di collezione Koelliker e il San Girolamo già di collezione Zerbone (cfr. Orlando 2019, p. 257). Ma a parte l'aspetto filologico, si deve infine riflettere sulla diffusione e la condivisione di una cultura tenebrosa di origine caravaggesca durante i decenni finali del Seicento, che si dimostra vivace e multiforme, capace di produrre opere di straordinaria forza espressiva, affatto obsolete e sempre più apprezzate dal colto collezionismo (cfr.

          Est: €6,000 - €8,000

          An old monk or hermit with a white beard holds a crucifix in his hands and, with his gaze fixed on the crucified one, is lost in contemplation. So far it has not been possible to determine who this worthy old man is. The posture corresponds to depictions of St. Johannes Nepomuk, who is shown younger, with a short beard and in the clothes of a canon. The face is haunted, the beard and scalp hair are characterized with virtuosity with dynamic brushstrokes of different widths in different gray and white tones.

          Peter Johann Brandl (1668 – 1735) - attributed to, Caritas

          Est: €15,000 - €17,000

          Petr Jan Brand was a Czech painter, one of the main representatives of the High Baroque in Bohemia. The early period of his work is due to the common period approach to Baroque painting. It uses dynamic and elegant compositions. With artistic maturity, his work acquires characteristic features. The paintings are often characterized by a spatial effect, which is achieved by strokes of a thick paste of paint. The picture shows a woman trying to give love to strange children. From the Latin term, Caritas means love

          (Prag 1668-1739 Kuttenberg; Zuschreibung), Heilige Scholastika. Öl auf Leinwand. 74 x 63,5 cm. -95 - Die jugendliche Heilige in Halbfigur im Gewand der Benediktinerinnen vor braunem Fond wiedergegeben. Im Gebet hat sie die Hände vor der Brust ineinander gelegt und blickt leicht verklärt nach links aus dem Bild. Auf ihrem von einem göttlichen Schein umgebenen Haupt trägt sie als ungewöhnliches Attribut eine Dornenkrone. Scholastika, die Schwester des Heiligen Benedikt von Nursia, war die erste Benediktinerin.Peter Brandl gehört zu den bedeutendsten Barockmalern Böhmens und führte zahlreiche Gemälde religiösen Inhalts für Kirchen in und um Prag aus. Bei dem vorliegenden Gemälde handelt es sich wohl um eine Arbeit aus der Werkstatt oder dem nahen Umfeld des Künstlers, fehlt es doch vor allem in den Händen und den Gewandfalten an Plastizität. Auch der Duktus ist bei Brandls Gemälden meist flotter und pastoser.

          PETER BRANDL, A SAINT WITH A SKULL A SAINT WITH A SKULL Verso with the remains of a varnish seal. Despite the small scale of the painting it still displays the dynamic monumentality typical of Peter Brandl's work. The frontality of the figure, the dramatic gesture and turn of the head, the strong colours and the theatrical highlighting of the book are all evident in other paintings of saints by this artist, such as the "Saint Jerome" in the Mährischen Galerie in Brünn. The artist, who was one of the main representatives of Bohemian late Baroque, was born in Prague and taught there by the court painter Christian Schröder, and thus his sphere of influence mainly extended over Prague and Bohemia.

An exquisite example of secular Czech Baroque, Brandl's painting is of exceptional artistic value.

          BRANDL Petr (1668 - 24. 9. 1735 Kutna Hora) The Holy Family with Saint John the Baptist Oil on canvas, 107 x 84 cm, undated [circa 1730], unsigned, relined at the end of the 19th century. The painting depicts the Holy Family with Saint John the Baptist. In the centre of the composition is the three-quarter length seated figure of the Virgin wearing a red dress and blue cloak. She is holding the naked Infant Jesus with her right hand on her lap; he is sitting on white drapery. The Infant is leaning towards Saint John the Baptist who is kissing his left foot. Saint John the Baptist is wearing brown drapery around his shoulders and is holding a cross with the inscription ""ECCE AGNUS DEI"" in his left hand Saint Joseph is depicted as a middle-aged man in brown clothes on the left and leaning towards the group in the centre, he is holding a lily in his right hand and his left hand is raised in an expressive gesture. There is a large decorative vase on the right, in the background there is a landscape with a dark cloudy sky. This work is rightly attributed to Petr Brandl - one of the greatest masters of Czech Baroque painting. The painting was exhibited at the exhibition of Prague Baroque in 1938. The composition and rendition of the Madonna is similar to the altar painting depicting the Adoration of the Magi in the church Zjeveni Pane in Smirice which was painted by Brandl in 1727. Provided with a laboratory report by D. Pechova. Ex collection Miroslav Trlica. Petr Brandl is one of the leading Czech Baroque painters, he is known for his paintings with strong light contrasts and his characteristic brushwork emphasizing the dramatical character of his paintings.
