        Fargue, Paulus Constantijn la: Studienblatt mit Marktszenen und vornehmen Herren

        Est: €1,500 - €1,800

        Studienblatt mit Marktszenen und vornehmen Herren. Feder in Braun, über Spuren von schwarzer Kreide, auf Pergament, verso weitere Marktszenen in schwarzer Kreide. 11,7 x 20,8 cm. Unten links signiert und datiert "P.C. la Fargue ad. viv del 1760", rechts oben nummeriert "N.4", links unten nummeriert "566". Paulus Constantijn war das begabteste und produktivste Mitglied der Haager Künstlerfamilie La Fargue; drei seiner Brüder und eine Schwester waren ebenfalls Künstler.Wahrscheinlich völlig autodidaktisch, widmete er sich zunächst der Herstellung bemalter Wandbehänge und Zimmertapeten, einige davon im Auftrag des Kunsthändlers Gerard Hoet (1698-1760). Bald spezialisierte er sich auf das Malen und Zeichnen von Stadtansichten und Landschaften mit topographischen Elementen. Während seine meist kleinformatigen, von Malern des 17. Jahrhunderts wie Jan van der Heyden oder Gerrit Adriansz. Berckheyde beeinflussten Gemälde topographisch zuverlässig, aber eher statisch wirken, sind seine Zeichnungen viel spontaner und zeigen eine größere Originalität. - Provenienz: Adalbert Freiherr von Lanna (1836-1909, Lugt 2773).

        Studienblatt mit Marktszenen und vornehmen Herren. Federzeichnung in Braun mit Einfassungslinie, vermutlich aus einem Skizzenbuch, 1760. - Signiert und datiert "P. C. la Frague ad viv. del 1760" und numeriert "N.4" sowie von fremder Hand in blauer Feder bezeichnet "566". Auf Vélin. 11,7 x 20,7 cm. Bis zur Einfassungslinie beschnitten, leicht wellig und etwas stockfleckig. Verso Ränder mit Klebespuren und an zwei Seiten hinterlegt. Paulus Constantijn la Fargue gehörte zu der niederländischen Maler-, Zeichner - und Graphikerfamilie. Vermutlich autodidaktisch gebildet, galt er unter seinen Geschwistern als der Begabteste. Sein Oeuvre umfaßt Gemälde, Zeichnungen und Radierungen mit holländischen Stadt- und Dorfansichten, die sich ebenso durch topographische Genauigkeit als auch durch eine anekdotenhafte Figurenstaffage auszeichnen. Die vorliegende Zeichnung dokumentiert die genaue Beobachtungsgabe des Künstlers und gewährt einen Einblick in das Alltagsleben in den Niederlanden im 18. Jahrhundert. Sammlung A.

EXHIBITION Laren N.H., Singer Museum, Keuze uit de collectie B. de Geus van den Heuvel, 1964, no. 10, as Isaak Ouwater. NOTES The artist, who was trained as a painter of room decorations, was mostly active in The Hague, although he is known to have painted views of Delft, Leyden, Haarlem, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. The influence of Jan van der Heyden is readily apparent in his work, of which the present picture is a characteristic example, with its topographical reliability, lively colours and finely rendered staffage. The Waag, or weigh-house, on the Dam (for which see lot 1225), was the first and oldest weigh-house of Amsterdam. Constructed between 1560-65, it was built of blue freestone. Seven scales hanging inside the outer doors were in use with a smaller one inside the building for fine and expensive merchandise. It was demolished in 1808 on the instructions of King Louis, who wished to clear the view from the Town Hall (see lot 1205) (see A.J. van der Aa, Aardrijkskundig woordenboek der Nederlanden, Gorinchem, 1839, I, p. 182). A signed drawing of 1778 of the same subject is in the municipal archives, Amsterdam (see illustration).

NOTES Another view by P.C. La Fargue of the same street, but from the other end, is in the Municipal Archives in The Hague, C. Dumas, Het Verheerlijkt den Haag, S'-Gravenhage, 1984, no. 93. That drawing is dated to the previous year. Many houses and summer residences were built in the 17th and 18th Century on the Herenstraat, on the banks of the river Vliet. The wall on the left encloses the Huys ten Dom, demolished in 1851, which was owned by Archduke Maximilian of Austria in the 15th Century. The building on the right still stands.
