(50 x 40.5cm) Provenance The Artist. Acquired directly from the above by H. Koekkoek, Jr. on December 20, 1877.  Sotheby Mak van Waay, sale of December 8, 1975, lot 712.  Sotheby's Amsterdam, sale of October 22, 2002, lot 137. Acquired directly from the above sale. Richard Green, London, United Kingdom. Acquired directly from the above. Private Collection, Florida.  Lot Essay We wish to thank the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie, also known as R.K.D., for their kind assistance in authenticating, and cataloguing the present Lot. Situated on the river Vecht, Veesp is formally part of Amsterdam in North Holland, and is a subject that Cornelis Springer also rendered in charcoal and ink. His paintings, based on preparatory sketches, were much in demand during his lifetime; he had a waiting list of clients wishing to purchase his detailed views of Dutch towns,  including Monnickendam, Zwolle, and Haarlem. While other cityscape painters with whom Springer first trained, including Kasparus Karsen turned their attention to creating detailed 'capriccios' or fantasy views, Springer chose to depict his native vistas with great optical fidelity, with an emphasis on architectural accuracy and perspective, and they are typically bathed in natural light, as in the present work. He was a leading member of the Dutch Romantic movement and held various positions with the esteemed Amsterdam-based 'Arti Et Amicitiae,' including Chairman.

Springer Traduction: Le soussigné déclare que cette peinture a été faite par lui en l'an 1849 et retravaillée en l'an 1869, Amsterdam, C. Springer Cornelis Springer est considéré aujourd'hui comme l'un des peintres architecturaux néerlandais les plus importants et les plus influents du XIXe siècle. Issu d'une famille d'architectes d'Amsterdam, son père lui enseigne très tôt les principes de la perspective et du dessin pratiqué dans sa profession, compétences qui seront déterminantes dans le développement ultérieur de l'artiste qui se consacre aux paysages urbains. Après une formation artistique sous la tutelle du célèbre peintre architectural Kasparus Karsen, Springer s'oriente autour de 1850 vers des vues réalistes très détaillées, plus particulièrement d'Amsterdam, sa ville natale, mais aussi Haarlem, Enkhuizen, Zwolle, Kampen et Monnickendam. Ces peintures sont reconnues par les historiens comme un témoignage précieux d'une époque révolue.Le présent tableau peint en 1849 est une 'uvre s'inscrivant à l'apogée de la carrière de l'artiste, et clôture sa première période consacrée aux vues idéalisées de ville pour s'orienter vers des représentations photographiques réalistes. Voyageant beaucoup en Hollande, en Allemagne et en Belgique, Springer produit de nombreux croquis très détaillés servant de base à ses compositions. A cette époque l'artiste est déjà tellement renommé qu'il ne travaille plus que sur commande pour des collectionneurs et des marchands privés: une liste d'attente de deux ans pour obtenir une de ses 'uvres témoigne de sa grande popularité.Springer entraîne le spectateur dans une rue ensoleillée, où des citadins sont engagés dans leurs activités quotidiennes, certains baignés de lumière et d'autres adoucis dans l'ombre. Les bâtiments tout comme les personnages sont réalisés avec une grande virtuosité et sont d'une précision millimétrique. La lumière sublime la perfection architecturale et sa douceur nous transporte dans une atmosphère chaude et lumineuse.Cette 'uvre est inédite sur le marché et se trouve conservée à l'abri des regards du public depuis plus de 70 ans, ce qui en fait une 'uvre d'autant plus rare et exceptionnelle.

Lots 56-83: A Distinguished Collection, signed and dated 'C Springer ft 56' (lower right), When looking at this magnificent winter scene by Cornelis Springer, we are invited to use, apart from sight, all our senses. We are smack in the middle of the bustling Jewish quarters in Amsterdam and although the sounds are slightly muffled by the snow, we can hear the market people loudly announcing their ware, the buyers negotiating, the man pushing the sledge loaded with heavy barrels, groaning, and then there is the ever-present chattering and gossiping of the market visitors. It is a racket! It is cold too: a mother hides her hands under her cape while her son carries the groceries. The weak wintery sunlight shining in the background on the market stalls has been unable to warm her, but in the shadow of the buildings she feels the cold even more. Still, despite the cold, we see a window wide open on the left upper sight of the painting, revealing the very Dutchness of this painting, for the Dutch are known to be lovers of cleanliness and fresh air, even in the very heart of winter. And for this very reason they also hang the laundry outside in icy weather. Do you see the clothes hanging on the pole on the right-hand sight of the building? The blankets are also out to air, right over the open market stall in front, and will be frozen stiff when it is time to take them in. This winter scene could be seen as a very appropriate illustration of a Charles Dickens book, but there is nothing in it that even touches the caricatural tone of a Dickens story. The realistic atmosphere is mostly due to the splendid and detailed architectural depiction of the buildings: every brick of every gable seems to have been scrutinously observed before being painted, and this is exactly what Springer did. Springer’s keen interest in architecture was rooted in his upbringing, and in his later artistic education. His father was a carpenter/builder and Springer’s first official apprenticeship was with a decorative house- and carriage painter. His interest in drawing, especially perspective, was stimulated by his architect brother who gave him drawing lessons. To professionalize his drawing skills, Springer also took lessons at the Stadstekenschool. His first exhibition in 1834 was followed by a new apprenticeship in 1835 with the well-known and celebrated architectural painter Kasparus Karsen. It is Karsen who taught him the tricks of the trade of painting capriccio city views that were laced with topographically correct elements. However, from the 1850s onwards we see Springer losing the fantasy elements and focusing more on representing topographical locations in great detail. With his choice for more subtle and subdued colours and thus depicting a more realistic atmosphere, Springer soon outdid his former master. Continuing this path, Springer grew to become the townscape painter of his time. Throughout his career he takes rather detailed notes of his artistic process so we know how meticulously he worked to get every exacting detail correct. He used to make numerous sketches on the spot which he later elaborated into full-scale compositions. In addition, he made detailed figure studies of the people and groups of people he wanted to portray before finally starting with the real painting job. This whole process could take months. The study for this painting, rendered in black chalk, immediately shows the virtuosity of Springer’s artistic talent. The many Springer admirers who passionately applaud his excellent architectural painting skills are more than correct, but in their enthusiasm they often forget to mention Springer’s phenomenal compositional expertise. The present lot is an excellent example of his well-balanced compositions. By the vague glow of the wintery sunlight upon the white market stalls in the background, the spectator’s eyes are drawn into the street. With one or two touches of a whiter shade indicating the hoods of female buyers, Springer deepens the perspective even more, while the white tones of the background are well-balanced by the bright and untouched white snow on the roof in the foreground. Groups of people seem to be scattered randomly in the scene, but on second view are cleverly grouped to anchor the composition. The white laundry hanging in the air is contrasted by the black hanging streetlight, both breaking up the view and serving to give depth to the composition at the same time. Time and time again Springer shows himself to be the master of perfection when it comes to architectural renderings, but also to be a true genius of perspective who knows how to create a totally convincing city view. With this lively scene Springer invites the viewer to join in Amsterdam’s nineteenth century street life. You will never know if this Christmas will be white, but with this great winter scene by Springer you can be sure of it.

              Cornelis Springer (1817-1891), A view of the Munttoren in Amsterdam, oil on panel, 58,5x46,5 cm, Cornelis Springer, 'The Greatest Painter Among Architects’ In the second half of the nineteenth century, the plea in favour of special, old buildings intensified and buildings in historical styles was built worldwide; a sign of general acceptance of and appreciation for the historical. The pioneer of the nineteenth-century revaluation of the architecture of bygone days was Romantic painting, especially that of cityscapes and that of Cornelis Springer. As a descendant of an Amsterdam family of city carpenters and master builders, he had an innate understanding of architecture. This insight into architecture, together with his talent for drawing and painting made him the cityscapes painter of the Dutch Romantic painting. It is not known whether Cornelis Springer actually promoted the preservation of old buildings. Nevertheless, Cornelis Springer was an honorary member of the Genootschap Architectura et Amicitia and in the society's journal on his death in 1891 was written: ‘He, who is the greatest painter among architects and the greatest architect among painters, may be regarded as eminently gifted not only to rescue picturesque places from oblivion, which also have architectural value but also, through his art, to draw the attention to the many beauteous building that our Dutch cities possess and which are so often neglected’. On behalf of the Society, his grave was commemorated with ‘the great influence Springer's work has had on the revival of our national architectural style’. Springer's paintings have a limited documentary significance. The preliminary studies - sketches that Springer made - provide a more accurate representation of the built reality. He literally and figuratively coloured in reality by transposing and elaborating the sketches into a painting. Springer was open to the picturesque aspects of architecture and composed attractive canvases, splendid reminders of much urban beauty, in which the 'Dutch national styles' came into their own. In his paintings, people are often clad in seventeenth-century clothing and he modified the buildings with Classicist elements, straight cornices, and eighteenth- or nineteenth-century sash windows were replaced by pinnacles, gables, and crosses. The Mint in Amsterdam. This former city gate originally consisted of two towers and a central section with a passageway. In 1619, most of the Regulierspoort burned down. The eastern tower and the entrance were reduced to ashes. The west tower was severely damaged. Only the guardhouse, which had been built against the west tower a year earlier, was spared. The western tower was rebuilt a year later to a design by Hendrick de Keyser. In the Disaster Year 1672, when the Republic of the Netherlands was attacked by England, France, the dioceses of Cologne and Munster, and large parts of our country were occupied, there was a great need for money to pay for the fight against the occupier. Since the existing mints were located in occupied territory, it was decided that the minting of silver and gold coins during the occupation be carried out in free Amsterdam. For this purpose, the stone guardhouse of the Regulierspoort at the end of the Kalverstraat was designated for this purpose. And although the minting of coins lasted only a year, the name 'Munt' continued to be used, not least because the mint building was now furnished as an inn 'de Munt'. This tavern remained in use until 1877, the year in which it was demolished due to declining interest of guests and was replaced by the building that still stands today in a modified form. The work now on offer at auction dates from 1877 and shows the Munt tower and the 'Logement De Munt'. The logement has a low extension with a classical entrance on the street side. This version of the building has more in common with his brother's new design than with the actual situation at the time of painting. Willem Springer, two years older than his brother Cornelis, designed the new building in the Neo-Renaissance style, where the entrance was incorporated into the facade and the low extension visible in the painting disappeared. The building as depicted by Cornelis in the painting is an idealized representation of the old situation in the 17th century. A photograph by Andries Jager from 1875 does not show evidence of the austerity as seen in the work of Cornelis and in Willem's renovated building. Willem Springer's building initially housed the Antiquarian Society, with rooms and a library. Today, it houses a shop selling Delft blue. The execution of Willem Springer’s design was considerably altered in 1938-39 to include a pedestrian passage. This passageway was designed by Piet Kramer. The gable tops above Springer's original central bays were removed. The two location photographs from 1875 and 1887 illustrate the differences between the actual situation in 1875, the Cornelis Springer's presentation from 1877 and the new building designed by Willem Springer in the same year.

              ROMANTISCHE ANSICHT EINER KATHEDRALE IM SPÄTLICHT Öl auf Leinwand. 81 x 99 cm. Rechts unten im dunklen Gemäuer ligiertes Monogramm „CS“. Verso auf dem Keilrahmen Aufkleber „RIJKSMUSEUM TWENTHE, ESCHEDE / TENTONSTELLING : ROMANTISCHE SCHOOL. / Schilder: Cornelis Springer / Stadgezicht.“ Höchst imponierend türmen sich die Bauformen einer gotischen Kathedrale auf. Leicht erhöht steht der Baukomplex, reges Treiben belebt den Vordergrund mit Bürgern und Bauern, Frauen mit weißen Kopftüchern oder mit einem Pferdekarren. Eine erhöhte Terrasse schließt die Darstellung rechts ab. Verwinkelungen und nach hinten ins Licht ziehende Gassenführung bestimmen den romantischen Charakter einer Altstadtsituation. Im Bildzentrum wird der Portikus einer Westfassade gezeigt mit darüber hochziehendem Kirchenschiff und Rosettenfenster, links jedoch verstellen mittelalterliche Bürgerbauten und sakrale Gemäuer den Blick auf die Gesamtfassade. Der mächtige Stumpf eines unvollendeten Südturms wird überragt vom hohen gotischen Spitzturm mit Spitzbögen und bekrönender Kreuzblume. So gibt die Darstellung Rätsel auf, wie dies so oft in den Architekturbildern Springers der Fall ist, denn eine genaue Lokalisierung von Kathedrale und Stadt ist kaum möglich. Und wie auch sonst, führt hier eine fantasievolle Romantik das Zepter der Bildregie. Versatzstückartig lassen sich jedoch einzelne Elemente deuten: Die beiden Türme haben die Antwerpener Kathedrale zum Vorbild, aber die Platzierung entspricht nicht den dortigen Gegebenheiten. Die dicht gedrängten, an den imposanten Kirchenbau sich anschmiegenden Gebäude links, mit der gerundeten Ecke, Häuser mit vorkragenden Giebeln, versetzten Fenstern und Türen und einer überdachten Kreuzgruppe, vermitteln romantische Erinnerungen an mittelalterliche Stadtsituationen wie wir sie in Straßburg, aber auch in Flandern und andernorts finden. Springers weitausgedehnte Reisen, die ihn aus den Niederlanden nach Belgien führten, nach Niedersachsen, Westfalen, Bremen, Lübeck oder Schleswig-Holstein, hinterließen ein umfangreiches Werk mit Reminiszenzen aus all diesen Aufenthalten. So willkürlich er die Architekturelemente, Stadt- und Straßensituationen auch aus den verschiedensten Gegenden kompiliert hat, desto detailgenauer zeigt sich die feinpinselige Wiedergabe, als hätten wir es tatsächlich mit einer historisch verbürgten Vedute zu tun. Auch die Lichtführung, die sich hier auf die Gebäudeecke links im Bild konzentriert, und ein warmes Sonnenlicht eines Spätnachmittags zeigt, entspricht ganz dem Geist der „Theatralischen Romantik“ der Zeit. Neben anderen Lehrern studierte Springer bei Jacobus van der Stok (1794-1864). Auch dieser Maler hatte bereits die Methode der Wiederverwendung von landschaftlichen Versatzstücken entwickelt. Springer jedoch übernahm bald das Fach der Architekturmalerei, angeregt durch seinen Bruder, dem Architekten Henry Springer (1768-1842). Gemälde seiner Hand wurden alsbald durch Heliogravüren, dann auch durch Farbdrucke international verbreitet und bekannt. Sammler der ganzen Welt sahen in diesen Werken gewissermaßen ein komprimiertes Bild des mittelalterlichen Europa, was den weltweiten Erfolg des Malers erklärt. Aber auch seine heutige Bedeutung wurde letztlich dokumentiert durch den Höchstpreis, der mit 1,1 Millionen Euro für eine „Ansicht aus Enkhuizen“ bei Sotheby‘s 2006 in Amsterdam erzielt wurde. A. R.
