        Willem de Poorter, The Presentation in the Temple

        Est: €25,000 - €30,000

        RefMas121121 Monogrammed and dated lower left: WDP 1650 Willem de Poorter has often been referred to as Rembrandt's pupil, which is obviously due to a misreading of Houbraken. In fact, there is no evidence of a teacher-pupil relationship between Rembrandt and de Poorter. Nevertheless, the great Dutchman left his mark on the artist´s work and Werner Sumowski, in his "Gemälde der Rembrandt-Schüler (Paintings by Rembrandt's Pupils)“, devotes an extensive chapter to de Poorter. Quoting Kurt Bauch, he characterises his style as follows: "Not grainy with thick impasto modelling of the light like Rembrandt and his circle, but thinly painted, flat and more brightly outlined". De Poorter did not work in Leiden or Amsterdam like Rembrandt, but in Haarlem throughout his life. Here he created an extensive body of work. The most important pictorial motifs he took from the Bible and from Antiquity.

        Jun. 13, 2013

        Willem de Poorter Holland 1608-c:a 1660 Salomos

        Est: kr200,000 - kr300,000

        Willem de Poorter Holland 1608-c:a 1660 Salomos avgudadyrkan. Signerad och daterad W D ..oorter 1646 Olja på pannå, 50 x 56 Signed and dated W D ..oorter 1646. Oil on panel, 50 x 56 cm. With P. De Boer, Amsterdam, circa 1933, where bought by the ancestors of the present owners. Willem de Poorter is generally classified today as a pupil of Rembrandt, since his paintings reflect the stylistic influence of Rembrandts early history scenes of circa 1629/ 33. However, no documents exist confirming such an apprenticeship. Maybe thus that de Poorter independently developed his speciality, which was the highly refined cabinet size history painting of Biblical or mythological subjects. This beautifully preserved painting, which was last seen at de Boer circa 1933 and which has recently turned up from a Swedish private collection, is a very fine example of his art. Both in composition and style it shows de Poorter at his best, with the figures evenly and harmoniously distributed in a shallow space over the picture plane and with the fine attention for details such seen in the silver vessels and the rendering of the garments. Especially characteristic is the treatment of the light, which falls in from the left and which spreads diagonally over the figures. The subject is among the artist's favourite and is taken from I Kings XI:4. Here is recorded how King Solomon, in order to please his concubines, was persuaded to offer to pagan gods, but was eventually damned. In the painting Solomon is seen kneeling at the foot of a sculpted altar, holding a censer. One of his concubines kneels beside him pointing towards the altar, where an offering is taking place under the watchful eye of a high priest. The foreign goddess is represented by a sculpture on a high pedestal in the left background. Several interpretations of the subject by the artist are known, the most notable being the paintings in the Rijksmuseum (see W. Sumowksi, Gemälde der Rembrandt Schuler, IV 1989, cat. No. 1610, with ill.), in the Royal collection, Belgium (photograph in the RKD) and in Kingston (Sumowski, op.cit., cat. No. 1624, with ill.). The present painting differs from these other interpretations in the use of a horizontal format, but otherwise attests of the same artistic level. The prime source of the composition is of course Rembrandts painting of Simeon in the temple of 1629 (Mauritshuis) but in the rendering of the sculpture of the god on a high pedestal de Poorter also reveals knowledge of Maerten van Heemskerck' engraving of the subject where a similar sculpture on a pedestal is seen. And to these are more inspirations to be added, such as in the love for still life detail, which is reminiscent of Gerard Dou in Leyden. Not much is known of the life of Willem de Poorter, other then that he was probably born in Haarlem and was recorded there on several occasions until 1649. He must have already been an independent painter by 1633 and thus belongs to the earliest generation of Dutch history painters seeking for success in the adaptation of Rembrandt's idiom for a wider public.

        Poorter, Willem de: Judith präsentiert das Haupt des Holofernes

        Est: €11,000 - €12,500

        Poorter, Willem de: Judith präsentiert das Haupt des Holofernes Judith präsentiert das abgeschlagene Haupt des Holofernes den Bewohnern der Stadt Betulia. Öl auf einer Eichenholztafel. 54 x 68 cm. Die ungewöhnliche Darstellung illustriert einen selten gewählten Moment aus der alttestamentarischen Geschichte der Judith. Die fromme Jüdin Judith hatte dem assyrischen Feldherren Holofernes, der ihre Heimatstadt Betulia belagert hielt, in der Nacht in seinem Feldlager das Haupt abgeschlagen, nachdem Holofernes zuvor dem Wein sehr zugesprochen hatte. Anschließend begab sich Judith mit dem Haupt wieder nach Betulia, wo sie den Bewohnern der Stadt den Kopf des feindlichen Anführers übergab. Dadurch ermutigt, unternahmen die Betulier am folgenden Tag einen Ausfall gegen die Assyrer, die durch den Verlust ihres Anführers verunsichert, ihr Heil in der Flucht suchten und das ganze assyrische Heerlager Beute der Belagerten wurde. Die nächtliche, nur durch Fackeln erleuchtete Szene zeigt die in reiche Gewänder gekleidete Judith auf einem erhöhten Podest in der Stadt. Auf den Stufen vor ihr kniet ihre Dienerin, die das Haupt des Holofernes an den Haaren aus einem Sack zieht und den überraschten und teils ergriffenen Umstehenden zeigt. - Der Haarlemer Maler Willem de Poorter war vor allem auf kleinformatige biblische Historien spezialisiert, die er in der Art Rembrandts oft als Nachtstücke, wie auch vorliegendes Werk, umsetzte. - Aus einer deutschen Privatsammlung.

        POORTER, WILLEM DE 1608 wohl in Haarlem - Haarlem

        Est: - €1,400

        POORTER, WILLEM DE 1608 wohl in Haarlem - Haarlem nach 1648 Allegorie auf die Vergänglichkeit: Die Entweihung des Grabmahls Öl auf Holz, 47 cm x 37 cm. Rahmen. Der in Haarlem ansässige Willem de Poorter war wahrscheinlich um 1631/32 in Amsterdam Schüler Rembrandts. Seine stark beleuchteten, sich oftmals vor dunklem Hintergrund absetzenden figürlichen Darstellungen zeigen häufig eine starke Verwandschaft zu den Gemälden seines Lehrers. Besondere Freude entwickelte Poorter bei der Wiedergabe und der Darstellung von Gold- und Silbergerät. Häufig fügt er seinen Kompositionen diagonal in das Bild gesetzte Fahnen hinzu, welche seine Darstellungen rhytmisieren und häufig als eckfüllende Elemente dienen. Wesentliches Kennzeichen seiner Gemälde ist jedoch die Behandlung und der Einsatz des Hell-Dunkel, das wie die Verwendung von - zu meist - in Braun, Gelb, Grün und Grau pastos aufgetragenen Farben in seinen Gemälden deutlich auf den Einfluß Rembrands verweisen. Gutachten von Justus Müller Hofstede vom 20.02.1979 in Kopieform beigefügt. Eine vergleichbare, fast identische Arbeit Poorters bei Christie's Amsterdam, Auktion 2769, vom 14. November 2007, Lot.3.

NOTES Considered to be by Gerrit Dou since the beginning of the last century, the present panel was first published as the work of Willem de Porter by Professor Werner Sumowski in 1983 ( loc. cit ). This picture can be regarded as one of the finest examples of de Poorter's output from the 1630/40s when he was working most closely under the influence of Rembrandt and Gerrit Dou. Although there is no documentation to support the assumption, it seems highly probable, judging by the number of small-scale biblical and history paintings produced by the artist in the 1630s, that de Poorter received his training in the Leiden workshop of Rembrandt alongside Gerrit Dou. The present panel is indebted to Rembrandt's picture of the same subject, of 1636, the surviving fragment of which is in the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart. Its original landscape format is known through an old copy in the Herzog Anton Ulrich-Museum, Brunswick, and their compositions are fundamentally the same: the figure group positioned at a window on the left side, still life elements in the lower corners and a recession into space in the centre. The level of sophistication displayed in the present picture through its dramatic Rembrandtesque lighting and meticulous Dou-like handling would suggest a date of circa 1640. SALESROOM NOTICE An attribution to Jan van Staveren was suggested by Willem van der Watering in an amendment to a card in the R.K.D.
