Lot 154: Jacques de Gheyn II (1565-1629)

Estimate: $35,250 - $49,350

Description: A soldier pouring powder into the pan of a matchlock numbered '16' black chalk, pen and brown ink, grey wash, brown ink framing lines 261 x 170 mm. PROVENANCE Bachofen-Burckhardt, Basel. With Galerie Arnoldi-Livie, Munich ENGRAVED In the same direction in de Gheyn's studio (possibly by C. Drebbel and R. de Baudous), for the 16th plate of the Wapen handelinghe van Roers Musquetten ende Spiessen..., The Hague, 1607 (Holl. 162). LITERATURE J.Q. van Regteren-Altena, Jacques de Gheyn, Three generations, The Hague, 1983, no. 360 (as 'The lost design for the 16th caliver man'). NOTES This drawing is a study for a plate in a manual showing the drill of three infantry corps, matchlockmen, musketeers and pikemen. The prints were commissioned in 1597 by Count Johann II von Nassau-Siegen, nephew of Prince Maurits. In addition to the prints for the infantry the commission probably included 22 engravings The Exercise of Cavalry published in 1599. However the publication of the drawings for the infantry was delayed for reasons of security as Count Johann explained in a letter to his brother dated 1608. It was thought that the Spaniards might benefit from the drilling of the Dutch army. Only at the end of the war in 1607 de Gheyn was authorised to engrave and publish the book. The first edition, in Dutch, was issued in The Hague that year. Soon after an edition in English, French, German and Danish was published and many more followed. De Gheyn successfully protected his copyright by the threat of a fine of 6,000 guilders for anyone producing a pirated edition. Many of the drawings were bound in a volume in Zoomer's Collection in 1725. They passed to the engraver Jan Goeree and are recorded in his sale 1731. Large groups of these drawings are now in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. Further drawings from this group were sold at Christie's Amsterdam, 12 November 1990, lot 68, and in these Rooms, 4 July 1972, lot 279 and 23 March 1982, lots 66-67....

Jan Baptist van Fornenburgh

Lot 9: Jan Baptist van Fornenburgh

Auction Date: Jul 08, 1999

Estimate: $100,000 - $150,000

Description: The Hague circa 1585 - 1649 still life of tulips, lilies, moss roses, an iris and other flowers in a glass vase in a marble niche, with butterflies and a lizard signed with monogram lower right: I.B.F oil on panel 61.8 by 47.5 cm.; 24 by 18N in. Fornenburgh lived and worked in The Hague, where he enrolled in the Guild in 1629. Although he can accurately be described as a follower of Ambrosius Bosschaert, he was strongly influenced by his townsman Jacques de Gheyn, in particular the latter's many botanical drawings and watercolours. As well as his paintings in oil on panel, Van Fornenburgh also made highly finished elaborate flower still lifes in watercolour on vellum in the manner of De Gheyn. This arrangement of flowers appears with minor changes in a picture of similar size, signed and dated 1628 (current whereabouts unknown; see Gemar-Koeltzsch, under Literature, p. 35, no. 128/1, reproduced p. 353, wrongly as dated 1608), and in reduced form in a smaller picture, signed and dated 1635 (D.M. Koetser collection, Zurich; see Bol, under Literature, p. 88, reproduced fig. 4). The present picture is therefore likely to date from the circa 1630-35. Provenance: Anonymous sale, Stockholm, Bukowski, 24 September 1931, lot 27 (as Ambrosius Bosschaert); With P. de Boer, Amsterdam, 1934; Private collection, Wassenaar, April 1970, from whom acquired by P. de Boer; Acquired by the present owner in 1970. Exhibited: Amsterdam, Kunsthandel P. de Boer, Helsche en Fluweelen Brueghel, 1934, no. 263 (as Johannes Bosschaert); Paris, Grand Palais, 1970 (according to a label on the reverse). Literature: P.

JACQUES DE GHEYN THE YOUNGER (1565-1629) FORTUNE.

Lot 46: JACQUES DE GHEYN THE YOUNGER (1565-1629) FORTUNE.

Auction Date: Jul 04, 1994

Estimate: $0 - $0

Description: Signed: J.D. Geyn. in. Pen and brown ink and grey wash. Indented for transfer. The corners rounded. 213 by 156 mm. Provenance: Baron H. von Geymuller (L.1133). Literature: I.Q. van Regteren Altena, Jacques de Gheyn, Three Generations, 3 vols., The Hague 1983, vol. II, cat. 177 (as the lost design for the print (see below); the print illustrated vol. I, p.51, fig.42). The study in reverse for the first in a series of eight prints that collectively illustrate the theme of transience, which were engraved, after de Gheyn's designs, by Zacharias Dolendo in 1596-97 (Holl. 129-136). Although he did not know whether or not this drawing had survived, van Regteren Altena allocated it a number in his catalogue raisonne of de Gheyn's drawings, alongside the other seven sheets from the series, now in Leiden, Hamburg and Amsterdam (see Literature). The iconographical scheme for this unusual series of prints appears to have been devised by the theologian Hugo Grotius, who also wrote the two-line explicatory texts that accompany each image; according to the engraved inscriptions, Grotius was only 13 years old when he wrote these mottoes. In their order within the series, the eight prints depict Fortune, Wealth, Pride, Jealousy, War, Poverty, Faith and Peace. Each of these qualities or states leads naturally into the next, and the last, Peace, leads back again to Fortune. Thus the whole series illustrates a grand "cycle of life" that demonstrates at once both the futility and the security of man's worldly existence. This concept was very popular with philosophers and artists alike in late sixteenth and early seventeenth century Holland, and it encapsulates the curious combination of humility and complacency which was so characteristic of the Dutch consciousness at this time. Van Regteren Altena described this series of designs as de Gheyn's "most ambitious scheme in the highly productive year 1596". At this stage of his career, de Gheyn was closely involved with the sophisticated artistic circle, centred on Haarlem, whose other leading lights were Cornelis van Haarlem, Karel van Mander and Hendrik Goltzius; the stylistic and theoretical influence of these powerful figures is clearly apparent both in the increasingly refined mannerism of his compositions and figure types, and in his growing interest in the representation of abstruse subjects, often devised by leading philosophers and theologians. Drawings such as this demonstrate, however, that even at this relatively early stage in his career, de Gheyn could express these typical characteristics of Dutch Mannerism extremely successfully within the framework of his own distinctive and original aesthetic vision....

JACQUES DE GHEYN II

Lot 36: JACQUES DE GHEYN II

Auction Date: May 10, 1994

Estimate: $175,000 - $225,000

Description: ANTWERP 1565-1629 THE HAGUE A DOUBLE-SIDED SHEET OF STUDIES: RECTO: HALF-LENGTH STUDY OF A WOMAN SEATED AT A TABLE WITH A CANDLE, A SEPARATE STUDY OF THE HEAD OF A WOMAN AND A STUDY OF A RIGHT ARM; VERSO: TWO STUDIES OF A RIGHT ARM AND TWO RIGHT HANDS Bears indistinct inscription in brown ink, lower right: de Geyn (?) fecit and in pencil, verso: Etude d'apres Nature. Pen and brown ink (recto and verso). 183 by 137 mm. EXHIBITED Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum, 1993, cat.8. LITERATURE M. Schapelhouman, review of I.Q. van Regteren Altena, Jacques de Gheyn: three Generations, in Simiolus 18 (1988), p.268, figs.2 (recto), 3 (verso). De Gheyn's great contemporary and kindred artistic spirit, Hendrik Goltzius, has left us relatively few sheets of figure and anatomy studies, but works of this type, and in particular studies of women, form an important part of de Gheyn's oeuvre. Indeed, although his splendid finished compositional drawings are rightly celebrated, many of the artist's most distinctive and original works are sheets of studies such as this, sheets which constitue an aesthetic landmark in Dutch draughtsmanship of the period recently defined by the exhibition at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, as the "Dawn of the Golden Age". Over the four centuries since they were made, many of these sheets of studies have been cut up; it was discovered a few years ago that a drawing in the Rijksprentenkabinet (inv.1898 A 3964) and one at the Getty Museum (I.Q. van Regteren Altena, Jacques de Gheyn: three generations, The Hague, 1983, cat.495) were originally part of the same sheet. There is, however, nothing to suggest that the present definitive sheet of studies by de Gheyn was ever any other shape than this; the mise en page is far more logical than is often the case in the artist's surviving sheets, and the (presumably) early framing lines are still completely intact. This drawing is in certain respects comparable in style and motif with the Sheet of studies with four reclining youths in the Abrams Collection, and with the Witches" Sabbath in Berlin (van Regteren Altena, op. cit., cat.522), which is dated 1604. A tentative dating to around the same time would therefore seem reasonable. (Verso illustrated p. 58). ...

JACQUES DE GHEYN II

Lot 51: JACQUES DE GHEYN II

Auction Date: May 10, 1994

Estimate: $100,000 - $150,000

Description: ANTWERP 1565-1629 THE HAGUE THE ARCHANGEL MICHAEL TRIUMPHING OVER THE DEVIL Bears inscription in pencil, lower right: J de Gheyn, and numberings: 1321 (pencil, recto) and N 236 (pencil, verso). Pen and brown ink. 231 by 169 mm. PROVENANCE Sale ("The Estate of a Dutch Family"), Amsterdam, C.F. Roos, 22 January 1884, lot 32; private collection, Innsbruck; Printroom of the Ferdinandeum, Innsbruck (inv.1967; mark, not in Lugt, verso); by exchange to Anton Schmidt. EXHIBITED Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum, 1993, cat.9. LITERATURE I.Q. van Regteren Altena, Jacques de Gheyn: three generations, The Hague 1983, vol. II, p.32, no.85; vol. III, p.203, pl.414. In its loose, flowing penmanship and broad hatching, and also in its figure types, this is a characteristic late drawing by de Gheyn, datable to around 1620. A comparable work is the Sheet of studies with Christ on the Cross, the Three Marys and St. John (Brussels, Musses des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, de Grez collection, inv.1344), which is a study for the central panel of a triptych dated 1618. At the time of the Counter-Reformation the story of St. Michael enjoyed great popularity with the Catholic community: the archangel's victory was seen as symbolic of the triumph of the Mother Church over heretic doctrine. Although de Gheyn's own religious adherence is not recorded, he married a woman from an old Catholic family in 1595, and clearly had close enough links with Catholicism to explain his choosing to depict such a subject.

The Hague. 1607, plate 27 EXHIBITED: Rotterdam, Museum Boymans-van Beuningen; Washington. National Gallery of Art. "Jacques de Gheyn II als tekenaar," 1985-6, no. 17. pp. 45-6. plate 17 LITERATURE: I.Q. van Regteren Altena, "Jacques de Gheyn, Three Generation's." The Hague, Boston. London,. 1983, l, pp. 54-5; II, no. 414; III. pl. 128 A preparatory study for plate 27 of the "Wapenhandelinghe...," a manual showing the drill of the three infantry corps: calivermen, musketeers and pikemen. The work was probably commissioned in 1597 by Count Jan van Nassau-Siegen, nephew of Prince Maurits. The commission possibly included the 22 prints of "The Exercise of Cavalry" published in 1599, as the patron envisaged a manual of arms for both cavalry and infantry. However, the publication of the "Exercise of Arms'was delayed, as Count Jan explained in a letter to his brother of 1608 for reasons of security, as the enemy might have benefited from a knowledge of how the Dutch army drilled. In 1607 when the war was almost at an end, De Gheyn was granted permission to engrave and publish his book. The first edition was published with texts in Dutch at The Hague in 1607. Soon after it was published with texts in English, French, German and Danish, and numerous editions followed. De Gheyn successfully protected the lucrative rights to the book by the threat of a 6000 guilder fine to anyone producing a pirated edition. The international success of the work is reflected in the widespread influence of the prints on the decorative arts, including a series of Delft tiles, decorative paintings at Clifton Hall, Nottinghamshire and stained glass in the Hotel de l'Arquebuse, Troyes. The preparatory drawings for the infantry and cavalry series were bound in a parchment volume sold with J. P. Zoomer's collection in 1725. They subsequently belonged to the engraver Jan Goeree and are recorded in his sale in 1731. Nine of the drawings were separated from the group by 1762 when, at the sale of B. Hagelis, the series was split up into lots of two, fetching prices varying between one and three guilders. The largest holdings of drawings from the series are in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam and the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. ...
