Auction Date: Oct 14, 2021

Estimate: €6,000 - €9,000

Description: Oil on canvas, framed. With the poem "Life is a dream" by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. We find ourselves before an interesting composition framed in the theme with the vanitas theme, very extended by most of Europe during the XV to XVIII centuries, the allegories "finis gloriae mundi "(The end of worldly glories) and "in ictu oculi" (In the blink of an eye) illustrate the thought of Miguel de Mañara, renovator of the Brotherhood of Holy Charity, as he wrote in his Book of Truth , in addition to completing the iconographic program of the chapel, made up of the Holy Burial of the main altarpiece and the series of "works of mercy" painted by Murillo, with which they form a coherent whole. However, the macabre of his subject - and the strong personality of the painter - were detrimental to his posthumous fame and made it easy for him to end up being attributed any painting in which a decomposing corpse or the severed head of a saint appeared, even if it were It was about paintings of the lowest quality. Become a «painter of the dead», as Enrique Romero de Torres called him, All lugubrious and repulsive affairs seemed to suit him, while with romantic overtones the rivalry with Murillo, his contemporary, was enlarged and deepened, since Valdés was assumed to have an angry and arrogant temperament opposed to the peaceful character of his rival.

JUAN DE VALDÉS LEAL

Lot 139: JUAN DE VALDÉS LEAL

Auction Date: Jun 22, 2016

Estimate: €0 - €0

Description: JUAN DE VALDÉS LEAL 1622 Sevilla - 1690 El bautismo de Cristo en el Jordán Óleo sobre lienzo Juan de Valdés Leal (Sevilla, 1622-Sevilla, 1690) representa, junto al genial Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, la culminación del Barroco Pleno en la escuela sevillana del Siglo de Oro. Hijo de Fernando de Nisa y Antonia Valdés, su formación debió iniciarse en el taller de Francisco de Herrera el Viejo y en Córdoba, donde se instala tras casarse en 1647, probablemente en el taller de Antonio del Castillo. A diferencia de Murillo su estilo se caracterizó por ser más expresivo y dramático, con una pincelada vigorosa y una gama de colores cálida, a veces terrosa, donde dominan los pardos y los ocres. Si bien es verdad que su abundante producción nos permite comprobar que estamos ante un pintor versátil, que ofrece un amplio abanico de acabados y de composiciones, su arte precisamente se distingue del otro gran maestro de la escuela sevillana contemporánea, Murillo, en la falta de equilibrio y en su sentido menos amable de los santos y de sus representaciones. De ahí que fuese el artista dotado con un estilo más temperamental y más violento, agitado incluso, quien nos legase algunas de las Vanitas más impresionantes de nuestro Siglo de Oro, como son las Postrimerías del Hospital de la Caridad de Sevilla. Su vida artística estuvo entre Sevilla y Córdoba donde dejó la mayoría de los encargos más importantes que recibió. A día de hoy este sería el único, y por tanto inédito, lienzo atribuido a Juan Valdés Leal cuyo asunto es el Bautismo de Cristo, lo cual constituye ya de por sí una rareza. A diferencia de otras producciones suyas, Valdés Leal se muestra más sereno que de costumbre, centrando el sentido convulso y dramático en el paisaje agitado que está a las espaldas de los personajes centrales. Cristo y San Juan Bautista dominan el primer plano de la escena. Aquí el artista ha querido que el espectador se centré en el recogimiento y en el sentido místico del hecho religioso que se describe. Los ángeles de la esquina superior izquierda envueltos en un cortinaje azul dan el toque barroco y dinámico preciso para distraer al espectador frente a la atmósfera de recogimiento de los personajes centrales. Debe ser obra realizada a su regreso a Sevilla, después de 1656, cuando el pintor recibe el encargo de realizar el conjunto de pinturas para el Monasterio de San Jerónimo de Buenavista, actualmente dispersos entre diversos museos y colecciones en todo el mundo tras la desamortización en 1835.

E. Valdivieso, Juan de Valdes Leal, Seville 1988, p. 239, no. 58, reproduced.

NOTE

This powerful treatment of Ecce Homo by Valdés Leal was painted by the artist along with a pendant representing La Virgen Dolorosa. The pendant, although listed by Valdivieso and Kinkead (see Literature) as of unknown whereabouts, has recently surfaced in a private collection, Madrid, and shares the same unusual calligraphic form of signature as its counterpart. Both paintings exist in a second version, although of lesser quality, listed by Valdivieso as in the collection of Vicente Tortajada (see Valdivieso, under Literature, p. 129, nos. 59 and 61, reproduced figures 66 and 67).

The last digit of the date on the present work has been lost, but it seems likely that the painting dates towards the end of the 1650s, at a similar moment to the artist's painting of The Sacrifice of Isaac, which was sold in these rooms, 9 December 2004, lot 339. Both paintings are dated by Valdivieso to circa 1657-59 soon after the artist's return to Seville from Madrid, where he was strongly influenced by the work of Titian, Tintoretto and Rubens, as a result of which his palette took on a greater lightness and his brushwork an increased freedom. Indeed the present composition echoes Titian's famous treatments of the subject, no less than two of which were in the Spanish Royal Collections by that time.
