Diego (1599) Velázquez Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Still life painter, b. 1599 - d. 1660

(b Seville, 1599; d Madrid, 1660) Spanish Painter. Diego Valasquez was the greatest painter of Philip IV’s court, a master portraitist and brilliant example of the Baroque style. Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez was born to a family of minor nobility in Seville. As his artistic talent became apparent, he was apprenticed first to Herrera the elder and then to Francisco Pacheco. In 1622 he traveled to Madrid on commission, and there, in 1622, he was given the opportunity to sketch the likeness of King Philip IV of Spain. The king was impressed and Valazquez was appointed his official court painter. Valazquez traveled to Italy in 1629 to study the works of the great Italian masters; Titian especially impressed and inspired him. Once back in Spain, Velazquez continued to complete portraits of the Spanish Royalty and to rise up the ranks of the Spanish court; acquiring new titles and responsibilities. It was relatively late into his career, in 1656 that he created his masterpiece Las Meninas. Velazquez’s work had a profound impact on many other artists and his influence can be seen even in the modern works of Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon and Salvador Dali.

            Est: $400 - $600

            Intense portrait of a Spanish gentlemen after Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez. Diego VELASQUEZ is an artist born in Spain in 1599 and deceased in 1660 Measures 20 x 26cm inside and 34 x 43 cm outside. The frame is 6.5 cm deep.  Diego Velázquez, (baptized June 6, 1599, Sevilla, Spain—died August 6, 1660, Madrid), the most important Spanish painter of the 17th century, a giant of Western art. Commissioned by King Philip IV of Spain in 1656, Las Meninas features an assortment of characters who were relatively important to Philip and his court. Velázquez is universally acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest artists. The naturalistic style in which he was trained provided a language for the expression of his remarkable power of observation in portraying both the living model and still life. Stimulated by the study of 16th-century Venetian painting, he developed from a master of faithful likeness and characterization into the creator of masterpieces of visual impression unique in his time. With brilliant diversity of brushstrokes and subtle harmonies of colour, he achieved effects of form and texture, space, light, and atmosphere that make him the chief forerunner of 19th-century French Impressionism.

            Circle of DIEGO DE VELAZQUEZ Y SILVA (Seville, 1599 - Madrid, 1660). "Bust of a lady". Oil on canvas. Relined. It presents restorations on the pictorial surface. It has faults in the frame. Measurements: 43 x 32 cm; 51 x 41 cm (frame). In this work we see a scene framed within the costumbrismo of the XVII century, worked with a realistic language where a composition stands out, balanced and well settled. This composition and the theme treated by the author, typical of the scenes of the reality of the Spain of the Golden Century and the picaresque literature of the time, bring the piece closer to the naturalist current. It is a genre in which popular types and attitudes, behaviors, values and habits common to a specific group of the population, region or class are described by means of a satirical, nostalgic or narrative description of the environments, customs, clothes, parties and entertainments, traditions, trades and representative types of a society. The idea of costumbrismo arose from an attempt to understand reality, or more precisely, reality understood in a particular way, from a specific point of view. Both the subject matter and the technical precision of this portrait gave rise to an artistic attribution linked to the circle of Velázquez. It is canonical to divide Velázquez's career by his two visits to Italy. He rarely signed his paintings, and the royal archives only give the dates of his most important works. Internal evidence and the history of his portraits provide the rest to some extent. Although he knew all the Italian schools and was a friend of the leading painters of his day, Velázquez was strong enough to resist outside influences and to develop for himself his own nature and his own artistic principles. He rejected the pomp that characterized the portraiture of other European courts and instead brought an even greater reserve to the sober formula of Habsburg portraiture established by Titian, Antonio Mor and Alonso Sánchez Coello. He is known for using a rather limited palette, but he mixed the available paints with great skill to achieve varied shades. His pigments did not differ significantly from those of his contemporaries and he mainly used azurite, enamel, vermilion, red lacquer, lead yellow and ochers. His early works were painted on canvases prepared with a reddish-brown ground. During his first trip to Italy, he adopted the use of light gray backgrounds, which he maintained for the rest of his life. The change resulted in paintings with greater luminosity and a generally cool, silvery range of colors.

Taking Velázquez's "Aesop" (originally intended for La Torre de La Parada) as a model, the author of the present oil painting emulates the naturalistic approach that the Sevillian genius took to characterise the character of humble extraction and ingenious character. Aesop, the Greek fabulator, holds his book of tales in his right hand and is surrounded by objects that allude to details of his life: the bucket of water, for example, refers to the ingenious reply he gave its owner and which won him his freedom.

            Leonard Baskin (American, 1922-2000)."Velazquez" Artist Proof, n.d. Hand-signed with title and "AP" in pencil below image. A captivating artist's proof lithograph by Leonard Baskin featuring a portrait of Diego Rodriguez de Silva y Velazquez (1599-1660), the famous Spanish painter and leading artist in the court of King Philip IV of Spain and Portugal, as well as the Spanish Golden Age. Baskin depicts the Spaniard as embodying the tenebrism of Velazquez's early works; the portrait dominated by the violent contrast of light and dark, as though the artist's face was illuminated by a spotlight. The intimidating figure is represented in Baskin's characteristic enormous scale with jagged and spiraling strokes that portray an intensely complex yet intriguingly ambiguous image, all fit with a custom matte and frame and ready for display! Size of image: 13.5" W x 19.75" H (34.3 cm x 50.2 cm) Size of frame: 26" W x 33.25" H (66 cm x 84.5 cm) Leonard Baskin was a 20th century "Renaissance Man" - a highly respected sculptor, printmaker, writer, and watercolorist. His prints included mythological, classical, and biblical scenes as well as portraits and floral studies. Baskin studied at Yale University from 1941 to 1943 and received his B.A. at the New School for Social Research in 1949. He also founded Gehenna Press which specialized in fine book production and taught printmaking and sculpture at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts as well as Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts from 1953 until 1974. Baskin's artworks are in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Vatican Museum, the Smithsonian Institute, the Tate Gallery in London, and other elite institutions. His noted public sculptural commissions include pieces for the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial as well as the Holocaust Memorial in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Baskin also received many prestigious honors, such as a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Gold Medal of the National Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Jewish Cultural Achievement Award. He was also honored with numerous retrospective exhibitions at institutions including the Smithsonian Museum, the Albertina Museum, and the Library of Congress. Leonard Baskin's "Velazquez" has been collected by the Washington D.C. National Gallery of Art (2013.121.57), Farnsworth Art Museum (2001.34.15), Syracuse University Art Museum (2016.0081), and Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum (WU 1983.13.4).

Published by the Calcografía Nacional. Madrid. For the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts. It has wrinkles, folds, slight stains. Measurements: 65 x 44 cm. c.u. Between 1777 and 1778, in response to the concern of several illustrious artists about the lack of engravers to reproduce the collections of the Royal Palaces, Goya offered to engrave plates in which he copied some of the most emblematic paintings by Velázquez belonging to these collections. This allowed him to study Velázquez's painting, which would influence him so much, as well as to learn etching independently, an engraving technique that allowed him enormous freedom from the academic sweet engraving, and which would form the basis for the rest of his series of prints: Caprichos, Desastres de la guerra (Disasters of War), Tauromaquia and Disparates. The copper plate is in the Calcografía Nacional (R. 3594) and the preparatory black pencil drawing in the Fundación Lázaro Galdiano (Inv. 10623), both in Madrid. On 28 July 1778 the sale was announced in the Gaceta de Madrid of: "Nine prints drawn and engraved with strong water by Don Francisco de Goya Pintor; whose originals of the size of the natural painted by Don Diego Velázquez exist in the Collection of the Royal Palace of this Court. They depict the figure of the kings Philip III and Philip IV, and of the Queens Margarita of Austria and Isabel of Bourbon, and that of Don Gaspar de Guzman Count Duke of Olivares, the standing figures of Menipo and Aesop and of the seated dwarfs. They are sold in the bookshop of Don Antonio Sancha in the old Aduana, and in that of Don Manuel Barco, Carrera de San Gerónimo. Their prices are, the equestrian figures at 6 reales and the others at 3; and they will be sold together and separately".

            Circle of DIEGO VELÁZQUEZ (Seville, 1599 – Madrid, 1660)., first half of the 17th century "Tears of Saint Peter". Oil on canvas.

            Est: €7,000 - €7,500

            Circle of DIEGO VELÁZQUEZ (Seville, 1599 - Madrid, 1660), first half of the 17th century. "Tears of Saint Peter". Oil on canvas. Size: 106 x 84 cm; 115 x 93 cm (frame). Aesthetically the work shows a great compositional and stylistic influence related to Diego Velázquez, specifically with the painting of the Tears of St. Peter, which belongs to the Villar Mir Collection, Madrid. This model must have been very popular at the time, as there are several similar versions, such as the one by Herrera the Elder, which is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville. Devotional image of the tears of Saint Peter. The representation of Saint Peter acknowledging his guilt and imploring forgiveness for having denied Christ three times was used by the reformers of the Catholic Church to encourage personal repentance, the need for forgiveness and, consequently, the practice of the sacrament of penance. This iconographic theme was very common in the last decades of the 16th century. The saint is shown seated, wrapped in a blue cloak and draped tunic, with his gaze directed out of the frame, imploring forgiveness. The large keys, his principal attribute, symbol of the Kingdom of Heaven, rest on the ground. The mysterious presence of the small landscape in the background, almost as if observed through a window, could allude to the transition between day and night, light and darkness, as the saint embodies in the history of Christianity. The monumental canon of the figure, the naturalism of the depiction of the clothing and the baroque lighting that constructs the scene place the painting in 17th-century Spain. According to the New Testament, Saint Peter was a fisherman, known as one of Jesus' twelve apostles. The Catholic Church identifies him through the apostolic succession as the first Pope, based among other things on Jesus' words to him: "You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church, and the power of Death shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven". St. Peter could be said to have been Jesus' confessor, his closest disciple, the two being united by a very special bond, as recounted in both the canonical and apocryphal Gospels. The story of St. Peter's tears will be used by theologians and moralists of the Counter-Reformation as an element of rapprochement with the faithful, bringing the saint's weaknesses closer to mortal man, showing that even St. Peter can commit faults, and subsequently be forgiven.

            Spanish school, follower of DIEGO RODRIGEZ DE SILVA Y VELÁZQUEZ (Seville, 1599 - Madrid,1660); 17th century. "The Jester Sebastián de Morra". Oil on canvas. Re-coloured. It presents damages in the pictorial surface. Measurements: 40 x 26 cm. This work replicates the well-known portrait of Sebastián de Morra nicknamed "the cousin", which was painted by Velázquez around the year 1645. The original work is currently in the Prado Museum in Madrid. In both pieces we see the representation of the jester of King Philip IV, who at first formed part of the court of the Cardinal Infante Don Fernando of Austria, and after his death moved to the protection of Prince Baltasar Carlos, who bequeathed him several objects in his will. Both portraits have the same composition, with the jester in the centre of the scene, seated against a neutral background that gives the figure all the prominence. Despite the damage that can be seen in this work, and the tonal darkness that does not allow all the details to be made out, it is possible to see the suit with lace at the neck, a symbol of distinction and royal protection that the sitter enjoyed, as this type of garment was forbidden for anyone who did not belong to the aristocracy. The work belongs to a series of portraits painted by Velázquez with the intention of decorating the secondary or transitional rooms of the palace (corridors, staircases, etc.). This set of portraits has generated great interest throughout the history of art, and has therefore been widely debated, with theories such as that these works were painted by Velázquez with the intention of dignifying the sitters and criticising the society of the time. Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez (1599-1660) was the leading artist of the court of King Philip IV of Spain and Portugal, and of the Spanish Golden Age. He began painting in a precise tenebrist style, later developing a freer form characterised by bold brushstrokes. In addition to numerous interpretations of scenes of historical and cultural importance, he painted dozens of portraits of the Spanish royal family and commoners, culminating in his masterpiece Las Meninas (1656). Velázquez's work became a model for 19th-century realist and impressionist painters. In the 20th century, artists such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Francis Bacon paid homage to Velázquez by reinterpreting some of his most iconic images.
