      • VON MARTIUS WATERCOLOR, A BRAZILIAN LANDSCAPE
        Jan. 27, 2024

        VON MARTIUS WATERCOLOR, A BRAZILIAN LANDSCAPE

        Est: $50,000 - $70,000

        VON MARTIUS, Carl Friedrich Philipp (1794-1868) and RUGENDAS, Johann Moritz (1802-1858). A Brazilian landscape with Indians encamped under palms by a river, a snake and crocodile in the foreground. Pencil, ink and watercolor on paper. Inscribed along lower margin: Manicaria Saccifera/Desmoncus orthacanthos Tab:98. 19 1/2" x 15 1/4" sheet, 28 1/2" x 24" framed. Literature: C. F. P. von Martius, Historia Naturalis Palmarum, II (De Brasiliae Palmis Singulatim) (Leipzig, 1823-1850), pp.87, 140-141, pl.98 (‘Manicaria Saccifera/Desmoncus orthacanthos’). This remarkable watercolor is a study for plate 98, volume two of Martius’s exhaustive work, Historia Naturalis Palmarum. The plate credits the lithographer (‘C. Hess in lap. del’) working from the author’s model (‘Martius palm ad nat.’). The snake and crocodile are omitted in the plate. If Martius provided the original sketches of the two palms (as credited in the plate), the present watercolor may nevertheless have been worked up by Johann Rugendas for publication. ---------------- Martius’s Historia Naturalis Palmarum was based on his travels in Brazil with Johann Baptist von Spix from 1818 to 1820, but expanded, in a third volume (Expositio Systematica), to include all species then known worldwide. The majority of drawings of palms for the second volume, dedicated to Brazilian palms, were credited to Martius with just a few landscapes, representing areas not traveled over by Martius, taken from works by Frans Post and Johann Moritz Rugendas. As with the present watercolor, Rugendas probably worked up many of Martius’s sketches for publication. King Maximilian Joseph of Bavaria sent Martius, a botanist, with Spix, a zoologist, to Brazil in 1817 in the suite of the Archduchess Leopoldina. The team investigated the natural history and tribal Indians and traveled extensively from Rio de Janeiro to Sao Paulo before making their way north, inland to Montes Claros and the Upper Sao Francisco, across to Salvador de Bahia and then northwest to Para. They became the first non-Portuguese Europeans to obtain permission to visit the Brazilian Amazon, starting upstream in August 1819. They split up in December, Martius ascending the Japura for two months reaching territory close to the frontier with modern-day Colombia, before reuniting at Barra (Manaus) in March 1820 and returning to Belem. From there, they sailed for Europe with a vast collection of natural history specimens and Indian artifacts. The journey was the subject of their co-authored Reise in Brasilien, published in three volumes with an atlas (Munich, 1823-1832) and spawned Martius’s two monumental works on natural history, Historia Naturalis Palmarum and the mammoth Flora Brasiliensis, the latter published between 1840 and 1906, with just one third published by the time of Martius’s death in 1868.

        M. RUGENDAS (1802-1858), Portrait of Elisa Brock Tupper (?), around 1840, Pencil

        Est: €3,000 - €4,000

        Moritz Rugendas (1802 Augsburg - 1858 Weilheim (Teck)): Portrait of Elisa Brock Tupper (?), c. 1840, Pencil Technique: Pencil on Paper Date: c. 1840 Description: Similar to Joseph Selleny, Johann Moritz Rugendas was a world traveller in matters of art. He travelled through South America for over 19 years, partly in the footsteps of Alexander von Humboldt - a first trip took him to Brazil from 1822 to 1825, and from 1831 to 1846 he travelled the entire continent. Via Mexico he came to Chile and Argentina, then to Peru, Bolivia and via Uruguay finally again to Brazil. He saw himself as an illustrator of "the new world discovered by Columbus [...] and wanted to show the world what picturesque treasures the tropical world offers", as he wrote to Humboldt after his return to Germany.In July 1834 he had come from Acapulco to Valparaiso in Chile, and from there to Santiago, where he had to stay longer than originally planned. Financial constraints and a riding accident in which Rugendas was seriously injured in the head in the Argentine border country forced him to stay longer, which only ended with his departure for Peru in November 1842. In Santiago, where Rugendas lived from July 1834 to October 1835 and from April 1836 to November 1837, he was quickly well established in society, which provided him with occasional portrait commissions - among others, he first drew and then painted an equestrian portrait of Jorge Huneeus Lippmann in 1835.Lippmann had married Isidora Zegers Montenegro at the beginning of the year; a native of Madrid, Isidora Zegers had come to Chile with her family in 1823. There, the Paris-educated musician made her house a cultural centre where Rugendas also frequented. In 1836 he painted a portrait of her brother José, and in 1844 Rugendas' meeting with the French colleague Raymond Auguste Monvoisin is said to have taken place in her house.From her first marriage to Colonel Guillermo Vic Tupper, who died in the Battle of Lircay in 1830, Isidora Zegers had three children - Flora Luisa Tupper, born in 1827, and Elisa Brock Tupper, born in 1828, as well as son Fernando, all three of whom were drawn by Rugendas.According to an inscription (albeit a relatively modern one) on the former saucer, our delicate portrait is also supposed to represent one of the two sisters - probably as a counterpart to her sister. In its layout it is oriented towards the coolness of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres' paintings, but in its sitting motif it corresponds to the Biedermeier portrait conventions of the time: Rugendas has only fleetingly captured the sitter's upper body and has concentrated his drawing on her face, alternating between naturalistic observation and stylisation, between painterly and linear ductus. She looks out at the world with wide eyes, but she does not make contact with the viewer - her gaze goes up to the right. If the identification is correct, it is most likely the portrait of the younger Elisa Brock Tupper, but here she is already older. Should the portrait have been painted only on the occasion of the presumed meeting with Monvoisin in 1844 in the house of Isidora Zegers Montenegro?

        (Augsburg 1802–1858 Weilheim) A Lady Resting in a Hammock, inscribed on the reverse by another hand “Peru, Für ... zu Lima, im Inneren Ihres Gartens - 1844, wiederholt skizziert 1850 zu München M. Rugendas...”, oil on paper on cardboard, 23 x 35 cm, unframed Compare: Portrait of Doña Luisa C. de Jiménez from Veracruz, 1831-33, oil on board, 35 x 22 cm, Museo Nacional de Historia Castillo de Chapultepec, Mexico City, 10-230082. We are grateful to Dr. Pablo Diener Ojeda and Dr. Christof Metzger for the scholarly advice. Hailed as ‘the painter of the Americas’ by his friend and mentor Alexander von Humboldt, the Augsburg-born artist Johann Moritz Rugendas started his career as illustrator as part of an ambitious scientific Brazil expedition led by Georg von Langsdorff in 1821. Rugendas produced a vast number of watercolours and drawings accurately recording flora and fauna, as well as his impressions of everyday life during this first encounter with America. After a short European intermezzo 1825-1831, in which the artist became familiar with modern artistic trends and learned new techniques, Rugendas embarks on a second American adventure through Haiti, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil. He produced plenty of oil sketches during his stay in Mexico, intended as a memory aid for the composition of larger works. The present lot probably falls within Rugendas’ Mexican production, as it is likely a sketch for the portrait of Doña Luisa G. de Jiménez, now held at the Museo Nacional de Historia, Mexico City. Rugendas embodies the ideal of the romantic travelling artist, fascinated by the nature and landscapes of the New World, as well as by the customs of its inhabitants. Foreign writers, scientists and artists approached Latin America throughout the 19th century in search of new aesthetic experiences, exciting discoveries, wealth, fame, and adventures.

        Peruanische Küstenlandschaft mit Palmen und Lamas. - Bleistift, hellblau laviert und weiß gehöht, auf festem Velin. 15,1 x 21,8 cm. Unten mittig bezeichnet "aus Peru" und unten rechts signiert und datiert "M. Rugendas / August 30 [...] 1853". -- Vorliegende Zeichnung entstand nach den Eindrücken, die Rugendas zum Ende seiner mehrjährigen Studienreise durch Mexiko und Südamerika sammelte. Bereits im Alter von nur 19 Jahren wurde er vom Baron Georg Heinrich von Langsdorf gebeten, als Zeichner mit auf eine mehrjährige, wissenschaftliche Expedition nach Südamerika zu kommen. Die dort entstandenen Zeichnungen beeindruckten unter anderem Alexander von Humboldt sowohl aus künstlerischer wie wissenschaftlicher Hinsicht nachhaltig und begründeten eine lebenslange Freundschaft der beiden. Die positive Resonanz auf das von ihm herausgegebene lithographische Werk Voyage pittoresque dans le Brésil entfachte Rugendas' Reiselust erneut und veranlasste ihn, im Jahre 1831 auf eigene Faust ein zweites Mal nach Mittel- und Südamerika zu reisen, wo er sich diesmal aber vor allem dem Landschaftsstudium widmete. Nach mehrjährigen Aufenthalten in Mexiko und Chile, bereiste er im Jahre 1847 schließlich Peru, Argentinien und Urugay, bevor er die Rückreise über Brasilien antrat. Die dort entstandenen Studien führte er meist nach seiner Rückkehr in Europa aus. In vorliegender Zeichnung stellt Rugendas eine malerische Küstenszene mit vereinzelt in der unberührten Natur der Bucht stehenden Lamas dar. Dabei akzentuiert er virtuos die Himmelspartie mit zart-blauen Aquarelltönen, welche der Darstellung zusätzliche Tiefe verleihen und den Blick auf das in der Ferne liegende Bergmassiv richten. Die Zeichnung wurde von Herrn Pablo Diener-Ojeda schriftlich bestätigt (per E-Mail vom 26. April 2019). -- Wir bitten darum, Zustandsberichte zu den Losen zu erfragen, da der Erhaltungszustand nur in Ausnahmefällen im Katalog angegeben ist. -- Please ask for condition reports for individual lots, as the condition is usually not mentioned in the catalogue.

        RUGENDAS, Johann Moritz (1802–1858). Voyage pittoresque dans le Brésil. Paris : Engelmann, 1835. Edition originale avec les planches sur Chine. Issu d’une grande famille d’artistes, l’artiste prend part à l’expédition du baron Langsdorf au Brésil en 1822. Russe d'origine allemande, Langsdorf est alors consul général de Russie à Rio de Janeiro et décide de mener une expédition d’exploration scientifque en forêt amazonienne par la voie fuviale, accompagné de botanistes, entomologistes, naturalistes, mais aussi d’artistes parmi lesquels Rugendas. A seulement 19 ans, le jeune peintre explore avec eux les régions de Sao Paolo et Minas Gerais avant de se retirer de l’expédition pour étudier seul la fore, la faune, mais aussi les populations rencontrées à Mato Grosso et Pernambuco. A la demande du roi Maximilien Ier de Bavière, il retourne en Europe en 1825, où son travail est admiré par Alexander von Humboldt qui l’encourage à travailler sur le Voyage pittoresque dans le Brésil. Le livre est fnalement publié en français et en allemand à Paris et comprend 100 lithographies qui reprennent des oeuvres de Rugendas réalisées sur place.

Tomada de la obra "Voyage Pittoresque dans le Brésil par Maurice Rugenda. No. 1. 2e. Division. Costumes et Portraits des Negres et des Indies". Johann Moritz Rugendas, participó en 1821 en la expedición científica al Brasil realizada por el Cónsul General de Rusia Georg Heinrich von Langsdorff, al llegar a Brasil abandonaría la expedición para continuar su viaje por cuenta propia; al regresar a Francia en 1827 comienza la publicación de su obra "Voyage Pittoresque dans le Brésil" con cien litografías originales, se realizaron veinte entregas trimestrales de cinco láminas en folio, acompañadas de un texto en alemán o su traducción al francés por M. Golbery; pero la publicación se atrasó y las últimas entregas no llegaron sino hasta 1835. Su trabajo fue muy bien recibido por la comunidad científica de París, en donde conoció al naturalista alemán Alejandro de Humboldt quien lo apoyó e influyó en su obra. Más tarde en 1830, movido por su continuo interés por la cultura de América, se trasladó a Haití y posteriormente a México entre junio de 1831 y marzo de 1834 recorrió desde Veracruz hasta Acapulco, no sólo realizó paisajes si no también escenas costumbristas, como corridas de toros, fiestas, tipos y plazas; fue expulsado del país, acusado de conspiración contra del gobierno de Anastasio Bustamante.

        Rugendas, Johann Moritz 1802 Augsburg - 1858 Weilheim (Teck), zugeschrieben Bildnis einer jungen Dame Hüftbild nach rechts. R. u. monogrammiert "M. Rgds". Öl auf Lwd. 30,2 x 23 cm. Doubliert. Min. besch. Rest. Rahmen min. besch. Johann Moritz Rugendas gilt als jener Maler, der Lateinamerika im 19. Jahrhundert in seiner Gesamtheit und Vielfalt am überzeugendsten darstellte. Für den argentinischen Staatsmann und Schriftsteller Domingo Faustino Sarmiento waren Alexander von Humboldt und Johann Moritz Rugendas die beiden Europäer, die Lateinamerika am besten verstanden hätten. Rugendas gilt als letztes künstlerisch bedeutendes Mitglied einer Augsburger Künstlerfamilie, die bis in das Jahr 1608, als die Vorfahren wegen ihres Glaubens aus Katalonien auswanderten und sich in Augsburg niederließen, nachverfolgt werden kann. Das vorliegende kleinformatige Bildnis ist ein anrührendes Dokument aus dem privaten Umfeld des Künstlers. Das Gemälde wird von Christin Conrad und Prof. Dr. Pablo Diener auf der Basis von Fotografien als wahrscheinliches Werk von Rugendas anerkannt. Beiden sei für ihre freundliche Unterstützung im Rahmen der Katalogisierung gedankt.

        Rugendas, Johann Moritz: Studie eines Indianers aus dem Stamm der Araukaner

        Est: €3,500 - €4,500

        Studie eines Indianers aus dem Stamm der Araukaner. Öl auf Malpappe. 33,4 x 14 cm. Um 1835/36. Johann Moritz Rugendas interessierte sich stark für die indianische Urbevölkerung Lateinamerikas, weshalb er während seines achtjährigen Aufenthaltes in Chile in den Süden des Kontinentes reiste, der noch bis zur zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts von der spanisch-kolonisatorischen Zivilisation verschont geblieben war. Hier portraitierte er Indianer, die noch in ihrer ursprünglichen Form lebten und lieferte damit wertvolle Informationen über die dort lebenden Menschen. Die locker und versiert ausgeführte Studie zeigt einen Indianer in traditioneller Kleidung aus dem Stamm der Araukaner, die im Süden Chiles oder Argentinien ansässig waren. Das Werk gehört zu einer Serie, die Rugendas während oder direkt im Anschluss an seinen Aufenthalt im Süden des Kontinents in Chile schuf und dürfte somit gegen Ende des Jahres 1835 oder im Laufe des Jahres 1836 entstanden sein. Pablo Diener bestätigt auf der Grundlage eines Photos die Autorschaft Johann Moritz Rugendas (email vom 11. Dezember 2011, als Kopie vorhanden). - Wir bitten darum, Zustandsberichte zu den Losen zu erfragen, da der Erhaltungszustand nur in Ausnahmefällen im Katalog angegeben ist. - Please ask for condition reports for individual lots, as the condition is usually not mentioned in the catalogue.
