Provenance: - Collection of P. de Koning (former consul of New Zealand). - Private collection, Breda, The Netherlands, until at least 1984. - Private collection, Switzerland. The present work is registered and documented at the H. W. Mesdag Archive of the RKD in The Hague. Our thanks to Christiaan Lucht, M.A., who has confirmed the authenticity of this work on the basis of a photograph. --------------- HENDRIK WILHELM MESDAG (Groningen 1831–1915 Haag) Weite See mit Segelbooten. Öl auf Holz. Unten rechts signiert: H W Mesdag. 30,5 × 41,7 cm. Provenienz: - Sammlung P. de Koning (ehemaliger Konsul von Neuseeland). - Niederländische Privatsammlung, Breda, bis mindestens 1984. - Schweizer Privatsammlung. Die weite See, die uns Hendrik Willem Mesdag in diesem stimmungsvollen Gemälde zeigt, ist tief ins abendliche Licht der Nordsee getaucht. Der Himmel scheint nach einem Wolkenbruch aufzuklären, lediglich einige schwere dunkle Wolken am Horizont zeugen noch von Sturm und Regen, die über die nun glatte Oberfläche des Wassers erst vor kurzem niedergegangen sein müssen. Schon bricht die Abendsonne durch die Wolken und stellenweise zeigt sich bereits der blaue Himmel hinter den grauen Wolken. Auf eindrucksvolle Weise gelingt es Mesdag, das Abendlicht in Himmel und Wasser wiederzugeben. Insbesondere die spärlichen und dennoch wirkungsvollen Farbakzente, wie das leuchtende Rot der Horizontlinie und die Partien hellen Blaus im Himmel, verleihen der Komposition eine lebhafte Frische. Diese herausragende Behandlung von Farbe und Licht verdeutlichen, dass dieses Gemälde auf dem Zenit von Mesdags künstlerischem Schaffen entstanden ist. Die Malweise mit grobem, pastosem und dynamischem Pinselduktus im Himmel sowie feineren und regelmässigeren Pinselstrichen im Wasser, stellt zudem die beiden Naturgewalten kontrastreich gegenüber. Die kleinen Segelboote, die Mesdag zentral an den Horizont platziert, vermitteln uns eindrucksvoll die unendliche Weite der See. Der Bildausschnitt, den Mesdag für dieses Gemälde wählt, vermittelt dem Betrachter des Werkes den Eindruck, am Strand zu stehen, wobei das Fehlen einer Uferlinie im Vordergrund unseren Fokus direkt aufs Meer lenkt. So kommt die friedvolle Stimmung des Meeres hervorragend zur Geltung und Mesdags Liebe für die Schönheit der Nordsee wird umso deutlicher. Hendrik Willem Mesdag war schon zu Lebzeiten ein höchst erfolgreicher, geschätzter und hochdekorierter Maler. Er stellte regelmässig im Salon in Paris aus und wurde dort bereits 1870 mit der Goldmedaille ausgezeichnet. Von 1889 bis 1907 war er Vorsitzender des Künstlervereins Pulchri Studio in Den Haag, 1901 wurde ihm der Orden vom Niederländischen Löwen verliehen und 1906 erhielt er zudem die Goldene Ehrenmedaille für Kunst und Wissenschaft von Königin Wilhelmina von Oranien-Nassau. Das vorliegende Werk ist im H. W. Mesdag Archiv des RKD in Den Haag registriert und dokumentiert. Christiaan Lucht, M.A., bestätigt die Eigenhändigkeit anhand einer Fotografie, wofür wir ihm danken. ---------------

        Est: $400 - $800

        Hendrik Willem Mesdag (1831-1915) Dutch, Watercolor. Self portrait. Titled 'Tete de Peintre' (Head of the Painter). Titled and signed. Provenance: Dr. Roberto Crea, Hillsborough, CA. Overall Size: 13 1/2 x 11 5/8 in. Sight Size: 5 1/2 x 4 3/8 in. Thickness: 2 1/2 in. #1068 . Hendrik Mesdag is known for Hague School painting, seascape, figure, genre and landscape, panorama. Hendrik Mesdag decided to become an artist in 1866, when already 35 years old. Before then he had worked in his father's banking business and had drawn in his leisure time. To further his artistic training he moved to Brussels, where he was taught by the Dutch painter Willem Roelofs. The sea became Mesdag's primary subject. In 1869 he settled close to the coast in The Hague. The beach at Scheveningen was his favourite spot for painting. He achieved international fame when he won a medal in 1870 at the Paris Salon. His most spectacular work, the Mesdag Panorama, was produced in 1881. It can still be seen in The Hague close by Museum Mesdag. This museum, founded by Mesdag himself (next to his house), contains primarily work by artists of the Hague School and the Barbizon School.

        Est: €30,000 - €50,000

        An evening scene with ‘bomschuiten’ off the coast and figures on the beach, signed and dated 'HW Mesdag 1878' (lower right), oil on panel, 51x39 cm , Exhibited:-Maastricht, Pictura, spring 1979, with Kunsthandel Ivo Bouwman, where acquired by the family of the present owner. Provenance:-Private collection, Switzerland.-With Kunsthandel Ivo Bouwman, The Hague, 1979, ill. in his exhibition catalogue on p. 35, Hendrik Willem Mesdag was one of the forerunners of The Hague School. In 1870, he had his first major success with the painting 'Les Brisants de la Mer du Nord', which was awarded the gold medal at the Salon in Paris. Since the mid-1870s, Mesdag was an established name in Dutch painting. The painting in the auction dates from 1878; Mesdag's talent had matured and he had become an artist of international renown.Impressionism 'pur sang'Whereas the Hague School is seen as a forerunner of impressionism, the present painting is an example of impressionism 'pur sang'. The ominous sky is depicted in firm strokes; the sun breaking through is rendered in strong white and yellow. The agility of the brushstroke is enhanced by a single incised detail; the typical little flags consisting of two perpendicular, easy touches are a characteristic detail of a true Mesdag. Skill is also evident in the rendering of the group of figures on the beach. Quickly painted as they are, they are still people of flesh and blood; more than staffage in dashes and dots.Colour in greyThe Hague School is also known as the grey school. This characterisation does not apply to this work. The longer you look, the more colour you see. There is the red jacket of the ‘klijnhaalder’ (person getting the anchor), the deep blue sea in the distance, the red reflection of the sun in the water. This is a painting that will not get boring any time soon. A work that becomes more beautiful the longer you look at it.A label on the reverse indicates that the work was present at art fair Pictura in Maastricht, the forerunner of TEFAF, where the previous owner bought it in 1979. He had the opportunity to enjoy the painting for over 40 years and now a new connoisseur will have the chance to add a fine work by this foreman of the Hague School to his or her collection.

Elève de Willem Roelofs (1822-1897) et Laurens Alma Tadema (1836-1912), il découvre les paysages maritimes lors de vacances sur l'île de Norderney en 1868 et se détourne alors de ses premiers sujets picturaux, les paysages et scènes d'intérieur de Bruxelles et du centre des terres. La mer est pour Mesdag une vraie révélation artistique qui le conduit à s'installer dans une ville où il en est proche, La Haye. Avec passion, il réalise de nombreuses études et peintures qui recueilleront l'éloge incontesté de son entourage et lanceront définitivement sa carrière. Sa renommée prend son envol avec l'exposition au salon de Paris des Brisants de la mer du Nord en 1870, pour lequel il fait forte impression et remporte une médaille d'or. De 1870 à 1911, Mesdag expose chaque année au moins deux 'uvres au Salon de Paris, événement artistique le plus important de l'époque au niveau international. Notre tableau, Marine au Soleil couchant, a été peint par Mesdag en 1899, dans une période de maturité de l'artiste: il illustre parfaitement l'aboutissement des recherches picturales de Mesdag et ses brillantes compétences techniques. Il ne s'agit pas d'une approche photographique, mais bien plutôt d'une retranscription de ses sensations recréant l'atmosphère d'un coucher de soleil, exercice dans lequel il excelle. L''uvre est inédite sur le marché depuis plus de 60 ans.

        Hendrik Willem Mesdag (1831-1915), Arriving bomschuiten, oil on canvas, 50x37,5 cm, Provenance: -Collection Mr G. Ridderhof, The Hague, Zeestraat 52/53 (according to a label attached to the stretcher). -Collection Pittsburgh, USA., signed and dated 'HW Mesdag 1903' (lower right), For The Hague School painter Hendrik Willem Mesdag, the sea, the fishing world and everything connected to this subject were a constant source of inspiration. By painting these subjects he captured a part of the history of the Scheveningen fishing industry. There has been no other painter who concentrated solely on the Scheveningen vessel, known as the bomschuit, in full action. Mesdag captured these vessels leaving the coast, struggling to sail in the wind, on the high seas with fierce currents, or approaching the coast - there was no harbour in Scheveningen at that time - at great speed with strong winds behind. On the cover of the catalog raisonné by Johan Poort the painting 'Return of the fishing vessels' (1897) is illustrated. The sky is grey and cloudy, the waves in soft grey and white tones. We also see the return of the vessels in the painting ‘Arriving bomschuiten’ now up for auction. The inscription 'SCH', on the mainsail of the ship on the right with the white sails, shows that it is a Scheveningen fishing vessel. An experienced sailor can deduce from the position of the sails that the boat - before the wind - is approaching its final destination. The sailors are in the process of regulating speed, braking as it were. In order not to turn transversely, both sails - the jib and the mainsail - are reduced. The jib is lowered sufficiently to catch the wind; the gaff of the mainsail is also lowered . When this work was painted, in 1903, Mesdag was already well established in the national and international art world of his time. He was awarded the Order of Orange-Nassau by Queen Wilhemina. Until his death in 1915 he would visit the sea almost daily to seek inspiration for his paintings, also in his later years when the coast had dramatically changed due to industrialisation. The present painting provides the opportunity to revisit the natural beauty of the North Sea prior to its many changes.

        Hendrik Willem Mesdag (1831-1915), Fishing boats in a calm, signed 'HW Mesdag.' (lower right), oil on canvas, 89x70 cm, Provenance: -With Kunsthandel Borzo, 's-Hertogenbosch. -Auction, Sotheby’s, Amsterdam, 25 October 2005, lot 232, where acquired by the present owner. When Hendrik Willem Mesdag (Groningen 1831 – The Hague 1915) came to The Hague in 1869, his reputation had not yet been established. For this reason, there was some doubt as to admitting him as a member of het Schilderkundig Genootschap Pulchri Studio. This doubt was put to rest immediately in 1870 when, to everyone’s amazement, he received the gold medal at the Paris Salon with his work 'Les Brisants de la Mer du Nord'. Later a reporter described the entrance of Mesdag in The Hague as: ‘Veni, vidi, vici!’. Finally, he became a member of Pulchri Studio, and not just an ordinary member: he became one of the most important pillars of this society. The painting ‘Les Brisants’ marked the start of Mesdag’s illustrious career as a seascape painter. Whereas he began with a depiction of the surf of the North Sea, he later added fishing boats to his seascapes. Mesdag worshipped the sea, and portrayed it tirelessly in hundreds of paintings, often with formidable skies, as in the painting now on offer. This lot shows us a composition of the North Sea on a quiet, seemingly windless day. A fishing boat is returning home, met by the sloop on the right; other ships are just visible in the distance on the horizon. The sea is depicted in a series of blue and green-grey tones. The focus is mainly on an impressive typical Dutch cloud formation that determines the atmosphere of the painting. With his impressionistic style Mesdag was a leading light of the The Hague School.
