Hans Memling Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Flower painter, b. 1440 - d. 1494

(born c. 1435-1440 Seligenstadt, Germany; died 11 August 1494 Bruges, Belgium) Flemish painter. Influenced by the work of Jan van Eyck and Rogier van der Weyden, Hans Memling was one of the leading Flemish painters of the 15th century. Little is known about his life, but he was likely an apprentice to Rogier van der Weyden in Brussels. Around 1465 Memling moved to Bruges, where he painted for the Flemish upper class and the Italian merchants who lived in the area. His work mainly consisted of religious paintings commissioned for private devotion; often with the patron shown praying towards the Virgin and Child. Memling is well known for his portraiture as well, catering to the tastes of his Italian patrons in which he painted increasingly secular portraits with humanist leanings that emphasized the wealth of the patron rather than his piety. The backgrounds of his portraits transformed through his career; from monochrome interior backdrops to landscapes where the subject is seated in nature. While Memling is not the first artist to make this transition, he is well known for his naturalist style and painting bust length compositions, not common at the time. An established artist by his thirties, Memling was able to garner respect not only from within Flanders but also in Renaissance Italy.

      HANS MEMLING (1430-1494) (His circle) Flemish school, first half of the 16th century The presentation of Mary at the Temple, Oil on panel, first half of the 16th century. An antique tag on the back reads: "This painting was painted by Memling in 1478 for his sister, a nun at the Saint Esprit convent in Bruges, where it was conserved until their eradication, and hidden by a religious woman who later sold it". The existence of the Saint Esprit convent or cloister in Bruges was first mentioned in 1236. It was located on Saint-Esprit street (now Goezeputstraat). After 1380, it was occupied by the nuns of the third order of Saint Francis. The convent was closed in 1796 by the revolutionary authorities. The work was analysed extensively by Iparc in 2019, with the following conclusion: "With this information along with the iconography and the art historical findings we can conclude that this painting most likely dates from the first half of the 16th century." A copy of IPARC's report from September of 2019 will be made available to the buyer. Height (cm) : 39,8 - Width (cm) : 31,2 - -

      Dec. 09, 2019

      HANS MEMLING (1430/40-1494)

      Est: €1,500 - €2,000

      HANS MEMLING (1430/40-1494) Man of Sorrows. Panel. Wax seal on the reverse. Severy restorations, worm holes. Late 15th century copy, probably by an Italian artist. The southern wood type confirms this hypothesis. The frequently copied original painting by Hans Memling, to be dated around ca. 1480-1490, is part of the collection of the Galleria di Palazzo Biano in Genova (panel, 53.4 x 39.1 cm, inv./cat.nr P.B. 1569). One of these copies, which is very close to the original but also to the present painting (concerning the hands) is now attributed to an anonymous Italian master from the last quarter of the 15th century (panel, 54.3 x 33.6 cm, inv./cat.nr cat. 1176a, Philadephia Museum of Art, Philadelphia). To be mentioned lastly is a copy in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Strasbourg, where a landscape has been added in the background (panel, 56 x 40 cm, inv.nr. MBA 186 ; 44.R.309). This version has been conserved together with its pendant depicting Our Lady and is currently attributed to the master of the Campana cassoni, identified as Antonio di Jacopo Gallo (or 'Gallo Fiorentino'), who worked in Florence between 1503 and 1527. 58 x 36.5 cm (78 x 57 cm) HANS MEMLING (1430/40-1494) Man van Smarten. Paneel. Lakzegel op verso. Zeer zware overschilderingen en wormgaten. Laat 15de eeuwse kopie, vermoedelijk van een Italiaanse hand. De zuiderse houtsoort versterkt deze these. Het veelvuldige gekopieerde origineel van Hans Memling, dat gedateerd wordt ca. 1480-1490, bevindt zich in Genua (paneel, 53.4 x 39.1 cm, Galleria di Palazzo Biano, inv./cat.nr P.B. 1569). Eén van deze kopieën, die deze maar ook onderhavige voorstelling wat betreft de handen, zeer dicht benadert, wordt momenteel toegeschreven aan een anonieme Italiaanse meester uit het laatste kwart van de 15de eeuw (paneel, 54.3 x 33.6 cm, inv./cat.nr cat. 1176a, Philadephia Museum of Art, Philadelphia). Ten slotte vermelden we een de kopie in het Musée des Beaux-Arts te Straatsburg, waaraan in de achtergrond een landschap werd toegevoegd (paneel, 56 x 40 cm, inv.nr. MBA 186 ; 44.R.309). Deze versie wordt samen met haar pendant met voorstelling van Onze-Lieve-Vrouw bewaard en wordt momenteel toegeschreven aan de meester van de Campana cassoni, geïdentificeerd als Antonio di Jacopo Gallo (ook 'Gallo Fiorentino' genoemd), die actief was in Firenze tussen 1503-1527. 58 x 36.5 cm (78 x 57 cm) HANS MEMLING (1430/40-1494) Christ de Pitié. Panneau. Cachet de laque au revers. Repeints et trous de ver. Copie de la fin du 15ème siècle, probablement d'un maître italien. Le bois méditerranéen renforce cette thèse. L'oeuvre originale (panneau, 53.4 x 39.1 cm, Galleria di Palazzo Biano, inv./cat.nr P.B. 1569) de Hans Memling datant de vers 1480-1490 a été copiée plusieurs fois. Une de ces copies, qui est la plus proche de la version originale mais aussi de la nôtre au sujet des mains, est maintenant attribuée à un maître anonyme italien du dernier quart du 15ème siècle (panneau, 54.3 x 33.6 cm, nr. d'inv./cat. 1176a, Philadephia Museum of Art, Philadelphia). Dernièrement, on mentionne la copie qui se trouve au Musée des Beaux-Arts à Strasbourg, où est ajoutée un paysage à l'arrière-plan (panneau, 56 x 40 cm, nr.d'inv. MBA 186 ; 44.R.309). Cette version a été conservée avec son pendant figurant la Vierge. Elle est maintenant attribuée au maître des cassoni Campana, identifié comme Antonio di Jacopo Gallo (ou 'Gallo Fiorentino'), actif à Florence entre 1503 et 1527. 58 x 36.5 cm (78 x 57 cm)
