      Cabeza San Juan Bautista

      Est: -

      La pieza que ocupa esta catalogación se trata de una obra muy cercana a la producción de Sebastián de Llanos Valdés (circa 1605 - 1677). Pintor barroco español, activo en Sevilla, de donde era probablemente natural, y discípulo según Ceán Bermúdez de Francisco Herrera el Viejo. El autor se caracterizó especialmente por un tema pictórico con mucha devoción en Sevilla: las cabezas cortadas de santos mártires. Encontramos grandes similitudes con la Cabeza de San Pablo realizada 1670 de la Iglesia Colegial del Salvador de Sevilla.

      SEBASTIÁN LLANOS Y VALDÉS - Adoration of the Shepherds

      Est: -

      SEBASTIÁN LLANOS Y VALDÉS Seville c. 1605 - 1677 Adoration of the shepherds Oil on canvas Measures 122 x 181 cm This painting is attributed to the production of the Sevillian painter Sebastián de Llanos y Valdés (h .1605-1677) one of the founders of the Drawing Academy of San Lucas (1660). It is an Adoration of the Shepherds (Luke 2, 15-21) in which the clear protagonist is the Child Jesus. Around him are the shepherds, the Virgin and Saint Joseph on a neutral background. At the back of the painting and with a very dark intonation are the mule and the ox. There are similarities with a contemporary painting from which Llanos y Valdés could have been inspired; by Antonio del Castillo (1616-1668), Nativity, Hispanic Society, New York (fig.1), famous painter in Seville of religious subjects. The production of Llanos y Valdés is directly related to that of Herrera el Viejo (c.1590-1654), but with a more Zurbaran-esque sense that materialized in chiaroscuro and the inclusion of small still lifes, giving the painting a more humanistic sense. In the Spanish seventeenth century, religious-themed painting tried to adopt a more everyday sense to bring the faithful closer. Bibliography: - Alfonso E. Pérez Sánchez; Baroque Painting in Spain (1600-1750), Cátedra, Madrid, 2010, p. 273.

      Est: €1,000 - €1,200

      SEBASTIÁN LLANOS VALDÉS (ca. 1605-1677). "Head of Saint Blaise. Oil on canvas. It conserves an 18th century Andalusian frame. Size: 38 x 46.5 cm; 44 x 53 cm (frame). In this scene of great dramatism, which follows the tenebrist heritage, as for the light expressiveness, the author only shows the face of an old man, with closed eyelids and on his right a knife. This iconographic attribute identifies the figure as Saint Paul. Paul was a Hellenised Jew from the Diaspora, born in Tarsus. He was therefore Jewish by ethnicity, Greek by culture and Roman by nationality. He received the name Saul, which he changed to Paul after his conversion. Born at the beginning of the first century, he studied in Jerusalem under the rabbi Gamaliel, who would have been noted for his hatred of Christians. One day, when he was on his way from Jerusalem to Damascus around the year 35, he was dazzled by lightning and fell from his horse. Then he heard the voice of Jesus saying to him: "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? As a result of this experience, the saint went abruptly from persecutor to zealot of Christianity. After curing the blindness of a Christian from Damascus, he began his life as a missionary until he reached Jerusalem, where he came into contact with Peter and the other apostles. In the Middle Ages numerous corporations were placed under his patronage, due to various aspects of his iconography, life and miracles. However, St. Paul was never a popular saint, which is proof of the relative poverty of his iconography. In fact, his role in art is not commensurate with his importance in the spread of Christianity. In early Christian art, his only attributes are a book or a scroll, and in the 13th century his emblem appears, the sword that was the instrument of his martyrdom. A Spanish Baroque painter, active in Seville and apparently a disciple of Francisco de Herrera the Elder, Sebastián de Llanos Valdés' style shows much influence from Francisco de Zurbarán. He is known to have been Mayor of the Painters' Guild in Seville in 1653 and is assumed (according to contemporary texts) to be well off. He also co-founded the San Lucas Academy of Drawing in 1660, together with Murillo and Herrera el Mozo. His work is preserved in Seville Cathedral, as well as monumental Evangelists in the Casa de Pilatos in the same city.

      Est: €4,000 - €8,000

      SEBASTIAN DE LLANOS Y VALDÉS c. 1605 Seville - 1677 probably Ibid THE MARTYR'S HEAD OF SAINT PAULUS ON A GOLDEN TRAY WITH A SWORD Oil on canvas (old relined). 33,5 x 47 cm (F. 51,5 x 65 cm). Verso: Inscribed on the canvas: 'R. Gasco'. Part. slightly old, soiled surface. Frame. Iconographically, the origin of such depictions, known since the Middle Ages, is based in the head of John the Baptist presented on a plate, in the so-called 'Johannesschüssel'. In the 17th century, the theme became so popular, especially in Spain, that the iconographic scheme was transferred to the beheaded heads of other martyrs (St Paul, St Jacob, St Dionysius, St Fulgentius and others), although, as in the case of St Paul, he was not beheaded at all. In addition to single representations, pendants or larger ensembles, the combination of several heads in one picture composition was also very popular. In older research, such 'martyr heads by Enrico Romero de Torres and José Gestoso y Pérez ... . were mainly associated with Juan de Valdés Leal, although it is now known that many of them were in fact by the older Seville painter Sebastián de Llanos y Valdés (c. 1605-1677).' Cf. on the very interesting complex of topics and the quotation: Weniger, Matthias: Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Bestandskatalog Spanische Malerei. Munich 2012, pp. 140-143. On the provenance of the painting: 1858 Gascó brothers (Madrid) buy the painting from the Gran Galeria of Don Ancieto Bravo in Seville (Don Ancieto was one of the largest and most important art collectors from Seville. His collection comprised about 670 paintings & sketches, including 24 paintings and seven sketches by Murillo and others). In 1908 the painting was exhibited in Zaragoza in the exhibition 'Exposicion Retrospectiva de Arte'. 1929 to 1930: Exhibited in Barcelona 1929-1930. 1936: Expropriated during the civil war in Sena (Zaragoza). 1939-1940: Exhibited in the 'Exposition for Recovery/Return' at the Zaragoza Commodity Exchange. 1940: Returned to the Gascó family, where it was kept until today. Afterwards, Southwest German private collection.

Verso: Auf der Leinwand bezeichnet: 'R. Gasco'. Part. min. altrest., verschmutzte Oberfläche. Rahmen. Ikonografisch basiert der Ursprung solcher, seit dem Mittelalter bekannten Darstellungen, in dem auf einem Teller präsentierten Haupt Johannes des Täufers, in der sogenannten 'Johannesschüssel'. Im 17. Jahrhundert wurde das Thema besonders in Spanien so beliebt, dass das ikonographische Schema auf die enthaupteten Köpfe anderer Märtryer (Paulus, Jacobus, Dionysius, Fulgentius u.a.) übertragen wurden, obgleich, wie im Falle des Heiligen Paulus, dieser überhaupt nicht enthauptet wurde. Neben Einzeldarstellungen, Pendants oder größere Ensemble, waren auch die Kombination mehrerer Köpfe in einer Bildkomposition sehr beliebt. In der älteren Forschung wurden derartige 'Märtyrerköpfe von Enrico Romero de Torres und José Gestoso y Pérez ... vornehmlich mit Juan de Valdés Leal assoziiert, obwohl man heute weiß, dass viele von ihnen in Wirklichkeit von dem älteren Sevillaner Maler Sebastián de Llanos y Valdés (um 1605-1677) stammen.' Vgl. zu dem sehr interessanten Themenkomplex und dem Zitat: Weniger, Matthias: Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Bestandskatalog Spanische Malerei. München 2012, S. 140-143. Zur Provenienz des Gemäldes: 1858 Gebrüder Gascó (Madrid) kaufen das Gemälde aus der Gran Galeria von Don Ancieto Bravo in Sevilla (Don Ancieto war einer der größten und bedeutendsten Kunstsammlern aus Sevilla. Seine Sammlung umfasste ca. 670 Gemälde & Skizzen, darunter 24 Gemälde und sieben Skizzen von Murillo u.a.). 1908 wurde das Bild in Zaragoza in der Ausstellung 'Exposicion Retrospectiva de Arte' ausgestellt. 1929 bis 1930: Ausstellung in Barcelona 1929-1930. 1936: Enteignung während des Bürgerkrieges in Sena (Zaragoza). 1939-1940: Ausgestellt in der ''Exposition zur Wiedererlangung/Rückgabe'' in der Warenbörse von Zaragoza. 1940: Rückführung in die Familie Gascó, in der es bis heute verwahrt wurde.

      Est: €20,000 - €30,000

      According to legend, Rufina and her sister Justa were daughters of a potter. After having destroyed a statue of a god in a pagan procession they were arrested by the Roman govenor. Rufina was beheaded and burnt and Justa was drowned in a well. Both martyrs are the patron saints of potters as well as the city of Seville, and have as a result been portrayed by numerous spanish painter including Diego Velázquez and Francisco Goya. Benito Navarrete Prieto has suggested the author of the present painting to be the Seville artist Sebastián de Llanos y Valdés. In 1989 however, Enrique Valdivieso attributed the picture to an artist from the circle of Llanos y Valdés and dated it to 1660. Llanos y Valdés, who was descended from the lower nobility and appears to have been financially independant, studied under Francisco de Herrera before running his own workshop from 1630. This large format painting, in an ornate old frame, may therefore be from a student of the workshop.
