              Apr. 18, 2024

              Matthäus Merian - Mercury fall's in love - Stuttgarter See

              Est: €220 - €280

              Mercury flying over a rural farm near a village with washer woman near a lake. This is a very loosely based on a print from the Methamorphoses designed by Hendrick Goltzius were the flying Mercury catches sight of Herse and is immediately smitten with love for her. The scene is situated on the large lake in Stuttgart, the place where the washerwomen are located is right next to the seegassentor. On the other side of the lake was the Buchsentor. (Einzelblätter Wüthrich 233 I/II). This excellent early impression before the letter f bottom middle and before the number, and with still almost square plate borders must be one of the very early impressions of this print. It is signed Math Merian fecit et excu. followed by the first publishers address 'Oppenheimli' . Matthäus Merian I (1593-1650), born in Basel, Switserland moved to Oppenheim in 1617 and when the city of Oppenheim was destroyed in 1620 by fire during the Spanish occupation he moved back to Basel. This gives a narrow window for production of this print around 1617-1620. Wüthrich gives 1616-1617 as approxilate dates for this print. Merian married the daughter of Theodor de Bry in 1617 and worked for his father-in-law. In these early works, before his age of 27, he showed a great talent for free landscape etching after his own designs, close to his contemporains Jan van de Velde and other fine Dutch landscape artist but also influenced by Flemish artists such as the master of the small landscapes and he made even work after Jan Breughel the younger. The landscape art from his early period deserves more attention as it is far superior to his later work. A rare print, certainly in this very early outstanding impression.

              Matthäus Merian - Berg by Suttgart - Unknown Proof state (RRRR)

              Est: €360 - €460

              Proof state unknown to Wüthrich (!). Very atmospheric etching showing the village of Berg by Stuttgard with the bridge over the Mühl canal flowing in the Neckar on the right. This etching (Wüthrich.528) in an extremely rare unfinished proof state, before adding of: 1. the small stork's nest, the dovecote and the sign on the the house to the left of the canal. 2. seven birds in the sky, 3. further additions on the roofs of the house on the right, 4. two walkers in the middle right on the horizon, 5. a plentitude of shrubbery added in bottom section and right bottom corner. 6. additional cross hatching adding shade in several parts for instance on the man front left. Still with still square plate borders. Wütrhrich describes two states, the second with added number, but this proof state is unknown to him, not described in his catalogue raisonné in 1966. This excellent early impression in unfinished proof state was only printed in a few copies and probably no other has been preserved. Merian married the daughter of Theodor de Bry in 1617 and worked for his father-in-law. In his early works in his twenties and thirties, he showed a great talent for free landscape etching after his own designs, close to his contemporains Jan van de Velde and other fine Dutch landscape artist but also influenced by Flemish artists such as the master of the small landscapes and even work after Jan Breughel the younger. His landscape art from his early period deserves more attention as it is far superior to his other work.

              Matthäus Merian - Wirtemberg Castle - Unknown Proof state (RRRR)

              Est: €360 - €460

              Proof state unknown to Wüthrich (!). Very atmospheric etching of the residence of the house of Württemberg near Stuttgard build in the 1520's. This etching (Wüthrich.529) in an extremely rare unfinished proof state preceding the first state, before adding of: 1. Three birds in the sky central left of the castle, 2. A stake on the castle wall lower rightr, 3 a shimney on the castles lower roof top at right, 4. two walkers on the path leading down from the castle gate. This excellent early impression before any number and still with square plate borders must be one of the very first impressions of this print and is of the uppermost rarity. The proof state was only printed in a few copies and probably no other has been preserved. (Wüthrich- 529). Matthäus Merian I (1593-1650), born in Basel, Switzerland moved to Oppenheim in 1617 and when the city of Oppenheim was destroyed in 1620 by fire during the Spanish occupation he moved back to Basel. Merian married the daughter of Theodor de Bry in 1617. In his early works in his twenties, he showed a great talent for free landscape etching after his own designs close to his contemporain Jan van de Velde but also influenced by Flemish artists such as the master of the small landscapes and he made even work after Jan Breughel the younger. The landscape art from his early period deserves more attention as it is far superior to his later work. Wütrich mentions: 'Because of the overly tight cross layers in the foreground, most of the known prints are very defective and have numerous blind spots. Clear prints are early prints and rare.' So a proof state like the one here on aucton is of the uppermost rarity and very valuable to enjoy in it's superb quality. RRRR

              Matthäus Merian, Gilles van Coninxloo - Bird Catching - RR

Here Gilles Coninxcloo is the inspiratory. The landscape art from his early period deserves more attention as it is far superior to his later work. This is a very rare print, very hard to find, not found in the British Museum, not in the Rijksmuseum, one of the series in the Harvard Art Museum (Object Number M22312.70) and some mostly incomplete sets in famous German collections (Strasburg, Nuremberg, Coburg...).Matthäus Merian I (1593-1650), born in Basel, Switzerland moved to Oppenheim in 1617 and when the city of Oppenheim was destroyed in 1620 by fire during the Spanish occupation he moved back to Basel.

To be noted that Coninxcloo (the brother-in-law of Pieter Breughel the Younger) , also worked in Frankenthal (nearby Oppenheim) for a while, as also did Jan Breughel the Younger in Nuremberg. The Flemish artists have a footstep in the region.
