    • TOMAS HIEPES, OR YEPES (1598) / Valencia (1668) "Vase with flowers"
      Dec. 18, 2023

      TOMAS HIEPES, OR YEPES (1598) / Valencia (1668) "Vase with flowers"

      Est: €165,000 - €220,000

      Oil on canvas. Origin: Madrid, private collection. Reference bibliography: - Perez Sanchez, AE, Thomas Yepes, exhibition catalogue, Fundacion Bancaja, Valencia, 1995; - Romero Asenjo, R., The Spanish still life in the 17th century: revealing its hidden nature, Icono I&R, Madrid, 2009, early 253-277; - Marco Garcia, V., Baroque painting in Valencia (1600-1737), CEEH, Madrid, 2021. Tomas Hiepes, or Yepes, is one of the main representatives of still life painting of the 17th century, and also the most outstanding figure of the 16th century Valencian school in this type of genre. His production abounds in still lifes, flower painting and, to a lesser extent, landscapes. His abundant production is due to the fact that he managed to develop intense commercial activity within and outside the borders of the Kingdom of Valencia. His works were always highly appreciated by the wealthy classes of Spanish society and, since ancient times, they frequently appear in collection and testamentary inventories. The work we present here is a magnificent example of his production in which he shows, imitating nature, an elegant vase with flowers on a pedestal. The container shows with its shine and highlights the metallic qualities of the object and a rich decoration with masks, shields and gallons. The floral repertoires are typical in the painter's work, among which are flowers such as: irises, lilies, hollyhocks, tulips, daisies, roses, carnations, peonies or jasmines. As is common in the Valencian school, the artist uses a chiaroscuro effect causing a significant contrast between the different elements that make up the still life, bathed in light, and the darkness of the neutral background. The technique used by Yepes on this canvas is also typical of Valencia, leaving the color of the preparation exposed in some areas to be able to play with a series of chromatic effects due to transparency. In the same way, another common characteristic can also be seen in his still lifes, which is the use of different chromatic bases for the execution of each type of flower; applying primer spots that do not fit the floral silhouette, as they are usually smaller in size, and that serve to create a greater richness of textures, color ranges and lighting effects. This work, in the past, must have formed a pendant with another Flower Vase that appeared in Madrid stores in 2001 (Fernando Duran, Auction of February 26, 2001, lot 259). We base it on the fact that both share the same measurements, similar floral arrangements in their composition, and the same type of bronze metal vase, with a foot, rounded and profusely decorated body. As in this case, in the aforementioned tender its Levantine origin was indicated: “Collection of paintings from an important Valencian house”; Therefore, both paintings must have been conceived at the same time and for the same client. Measurements: 110 x 80 cm.

      TOMAS YEPES (Valencia, c. 1610-1674). "Still life". Oil on canvas. Relined. Attached report issued by the historian Don José Gómez Frechina. It presents restorations.

      Est: €9,000 - €10,000

      TOMÁS YEPES (Valencia, ca. 1610-1674). "Still life". Oil on canvas. Re-coloured. Attached report issued by the historian Don José Gómez Frechina. It presents restorations. Measurements: 62,5 x 82,5 cm; 77 x 97 cm (frame). In this work Hiepes offers us a still life of dynamic and scenographic character, typically baroque, in which a typically Spanish base is combined with an Italian influence characteristic of the Valencian school of the baroque. This school was greatly influenced by the tenebrism of Caravaggio in the 17th century, as Italian paintings destined for the royal collections arrived in Spain via the port of Valencia. This work combines the compositional dynamism of the full Baroque with a chromatic and luminous treatment directly derived from Caravaggio. The bright, anti-classical tones of the flowers, among which pink and red stand out, are joined by a whole series of earthy, ochre and carmine colours that form the basis of the Caravaggesque palette, constituting an interesting visual counterpoint. With regard to the general structure, this is a work that clearly belongs to the Spanish Baroque period. Tomás Hiepes is currently considered the most outstanding still-life painter of the Valencian Baroque, and in fact he is responsible for the greatest interest in this genre in the Valencian sphere. Although he was born around 1610, Hiepes began his artistic production in the second half of the century and continued to work until the 1970s, although his painting does not show any major stylistic changes throughout his production. In his work we can appreciate a search for geometry and symmetry through the composition of the flowers, which he arranges in a radial manner, in the manner of the early Spanish Baroque, as we can see in this canvas. His aesthetic language is characterised by several features that can be seen in this work. These include the importance of naturalism, a detailed and precise technique, especially visible in the qualities of the objects, a mainly warm, typically Valencian colour range, the influence of the Neapolitan still life in the brightness and sumptuousness of some elements and a certain tenebrist character in the lighting. With regard to the biographical information on Tomás Hiepes, there is no extensive bibliography that can establish his entire artistic career. It is known that his works were signed between 1642 and 1674, the year of his death. His works are currently held in various private collections and important art centres, including the Museo del Prado, the Museo de Bellas Artes in Valencia and the Monasterio de las Descalzas Reales in Madrid, among other public and private collections.

      TOMAS HIEPES, O YEPES (1598) / Valencia (1668) "Jug with flowers"

      Est: €180,000 - €240,000

      Oil on canvas. Signed in the lower left corner "TomAs Hiepes Fecit". Origin: Madrid, private collection. Bibliography: - Romero Asenjo, R., The Spanish still life in the 17th century: revealing its hidden nature, Icono I&R, Madrid, 2009, pp. 253-277; - Marco García, V., Baroque painting in Valencia (1600-1737), CEEH, Madrid, 2021, p. 449, TomAs Yepes, cat. no. 80. TomAs Hiepes, or Yepes, is one of the main representatives of still life painting of the 17th century, and also the most outstanding figure of the Valencian school of the 16th century in this type of genre. Still lifes, flower painting and, to a lesser extent, landscapes abound in his production. Its abundant production is due to the fact that it managed to develop an intense commercial activity inside and outside the borders of the Kingdom of Valencia. His works have always been highly appreciated by the well-to-do classes of Spanish society and, long ago, frequently appear in collection inventories and testamentaries. The work that we present here is a magnificent example of his production in which he shows, imitating nature, an elegant jug with flowers on a pedestal on which various fruits appear, such as: cherries, strawberry trees and some unripe almonds. The container shows with its shine and highlights the metallic qualities of the object and a rich decoration with a cherub between bands and chevrons. The floral repertoires are typical of the painter's work and are presided over by an imposing Fritilaria Imperialis, that crowns the arrangement, which is accompanied by other more common species in the painting of the moment such as: tulips, lilies, hyacinths, daisies, roses, peonies, foxgloves or jasmine. The presence of four butterflies flapping their wings brightens the whole ensemble. Although, due to its elegant sobriety and refinement, the first aspect that the painting offers is that of his earliest works, the technical analyzes to which it has been subjected reveal just the opposite. Romero, who unveiled the work in his 2009 study, revealed a series of data that allow us to situate its execution in the final phase of Yepes's career, in the 1960s, a stage in the painter's production in the that sacrifices the precision of the botanical species to favor that its composition has a much more exuberant appearance. As usual in the Valencian school, the artist uses a chiaroscuro effect, causing a significant contrast between the different elements that make up the still life, bathed in light, and the darkness of the neutral background. The technique used by Yepes on this canvas is also typical of Valencia, leaving the color of the preparation exposed in some areas in order to play with a series of chromatic effects through transparency. In the same way, another habitual characteristic can be seen in his still lifes, which is the use of different chromatic bases for the execution of each type of flower; applying primer spots that do not fit the floral silhouette, as they are usually smaller, and that serve to create a greater richness of textures, color ranges and lighting effects. All this,

      TOMÁS YEPES (Valencia, h. 1600 - 1674) Firmado "T. HIEPES. F". Obra maestra firmada por el gran pintor de bodegones valenciano del Siglo de Oro. Tenemos muy pocos datos biográficos del autor, pero afortunadamente, han llegado hasta nosotros numerosas obras firmadas que abarcan desde el año 1642 hasta la fecha de su muerte en 1674, lo que nos permite conjeturar que fue un pintor prolífico y con una buena clientela en su tierra natal. Recibió una gran influencia de los pintores del género de la primera mitad del siglo XVII, del grupo de los artistas naturalistas donde se priman las composiciones muy simétricas, el dibujo de los objetos muy definido, una iluminación de raíz tenebrista y la construcción de cada uno de sus objetos o seres con minuciosidad y a base de capas de veladuras que se superponen una sobre otra. En este sentido, podemos ver el conocimiento que tenía nuestro pintor de las obras de nuestro Juan Sánchez Cotán, o de los flamencos Osías Beert, o Clara Peeters. Sus bodegones, como en el caso de esta joya, revelan un pintor preocupado por el detalle, por la descripción precisa de las calidades, hoy casi podríamos llamarlo un hiperrealista. El bodegón que presentamos se encuentra en perfecto estado de conservación. Como detalle interesante encontramos el relieve del jarrón dorado en el que rebosa el ramo de flores. Es una escena bíblica bien conocida: la muerte de Abel a manos de Caín, un asunto que, sin duda, tiene relación con las flores, las peras y las cerezas, alusión al sacrificio de uno de los hijos de Adán y Eva. Por su parte, el paisaje guarda mucha relación con los paisajes flamencos que tan bien conoció Yepes o Hiepes como se muestra en numerosas obras suyas. Procedencia: Duque de Mancera, antiguo virrey de México.

      TOMÁS YEPES, A PAINTED CERAMIC VASE WITH AN ORANGE TREE A PAINTED CERAMIC VASE WITH AN ORANGE TREE Tomás Yepes is one of the great Spanish still life painters of the 17th century. Not much is known about his life, except that he attended the "Colegio de Pintores" (painter's school) in Valencia. Following this, he remains traceable in the same town, where he also died in 1674. The current work is characterised as an early piece by this artist through the frontality and concentration on a single motif. His oeuvre and development as an artist can best be observed in the Prado in Madrid, as this museum holds the most substantial group of his dated paintings. Over the course of time, the radical simplicity of Yepes' compositions changes, and the number of depicted objects increases.
