Diese reizvolle und lebendige Komposition mit ihrer weiten Landschaft und lebhaften Figuren, die an den verschiedenen Vergnügungen der Wintersaison teilnehmen, ist eines der frühesten Werke des Delfter Künstlers Adriaen Pietersz. van de Venne. Es führt glanzvoll seinen Anspruch vor Augen, "Gemälde für jedermanns Vergnügen" zu malen (siehe Laurens Bol: Adriaen Pietersz. Van de Venne: Painter and Draughtsman, Doornspijk 1989, S. 20–21, Fussnoten 15 und 25). Das signierte Ölgemälde geht wahrscheinlich seinen ersten datierten Gemälden voraus, die er 1614 und 1615 fertigstellte, und ist ein schönes und fesselndes Beispiel für die vielen Winterlandschaften, die im frühen 17. Jahrhundert entstanden sind. Laut Cornelis de Bie (1627–1715), dem Biographen des Künstlers, lernte Van de Venne die Grundprinzipien der Miniaturmalerei möglicherweise vom Goldschmied Simon de Valck in Leiden. Diese Technik eignet sich gut für das kleinformatige Rondell und Van de Venne schuf in seiner frühen Schaffensphase eine Reihe solcher Werke, darunter Gegenstücke mit den Darstellungen des Sommers und Winters (Privatsammlung, Deutschland; siehe Bol 1989, ebd., S. 16–17, Kat.-Nr. 5A und 5B, mit Abb.). Diese Werke, die ebenfalls in einem intimen Rahmen gemalt wurden, weisen bemerkenswerte formale und visuelle Ähnlichkeiten mit der hier angebotenen Komposition auf: Weitläufige Landschaften rücken in die Ferne, fein gemalte Figuren verleihen der Szene eine außergewöhnliche Lebendigkeit, und große Repoussoir-Bäume auf der linken Seite verankern beide Winterszenen. Darüber hinaus erscheint die verhüllte Frau unten links, die sich die Hände an einem Feuer wärmt und nicht zu den von zeitgenössischer Hand hinzugefügten größeren Figuren zu gehören scheint, an fast derselben Stelle und in derselben Haltung wie das Winter-Rondell in der Privatsammlung. Eine Infrarotaufnahme des vorliegenden Werks lässt einige Unterzeichnungen erkennen. Die Figuren auf dem Eis und das Gebäude in der Nähe der Brücke wurden mit losen und skizzenhaften Linien angedeutet. Darüber hinaus gibt es in der gesamten Szene eine Reihe von feinen, geraden Linien, die nicht mit bestimmten architektonischen oder figürlichen Elementen in Verbindung gebracht werden können. Sie dienen möglicherweise zur Gestaltung der Komposition. Ähnliche Unterzeichnungen finden sich auch in anderen Werken des Künstlers aus derselben Zeit, wie beispielsweise in der Allegorie des Zwölfjährigen Friedens (1616, Musée du Louvre, Paris, Inv.-Nr. 1924). Das Gemälde stammt aus der Sammlung des amerikanischen Sammlerehepaars June ("Jimmy") und Henry H. Weldon, das sich auf kleine Kabinettstücke der niederländischen und flämischen Schule des 17. Jahrhunderts konzentrierte und über Jahrzehnte aufgebaut wurde. Dr. Edwin Buijsen, der das vorliegende Gemälde 2015 im Original untersucht hat, ordnet diese Winterlandschaft mit elegant gekleideten Figuren als eine frühe Arbeit vor 1614 ein (siehe Literatur). Besonders die Figuren im Hintergrund sind charakteristisch für Vennes Frühwerk. Die grösseren Personen im Vordergrund stammen vermutlich von einer anderen zeitgenössischen Hand. Wir danken Dr. Edwin Buijsen für seine wissenschaftliche Unterstützung bei der Katalogisierung dieses Gemäldes. ---------------

          RefMas121121 Lower right remains of a signature: ...Venne Adriaen van de Venne was a versatile artist who was active as a poet, illustrator and painter. He learnt the method of grisaille painting from his teacher Hieronymus van Diest and continued to use the technique successfully throughout his career. Active in Middelburg and later in The Hague, van de Venne painted mythological scenes and landscapes in the tradition of Jan Brueghel I. However, he was most well-known for the illustrations that adorned the pages of moralising works such as those of Jacob Cats or Johan de Brune. This humorous monochromatic depiction of a vagrant family is a characteristic example of his style. This unusual motif is based on a long Dutch tradition of depicting both the lower strata of society and moralising proverbs. Following his move to The Hague in 1625, Venne developed a repertoire of comical and ironic depictions of the lives of simple people and peasant life using his typical en grisaille or en brunaille palette. Almost all of these scenes feature a contemporary proverb or saying. In this work, an explanation is included in a scroll at the base of the panel. The title “Noot breeckt wet” (necessity breaks the law) can be interpreted as a commentary on the scene. In difficult circumstances, usual rules are broken: The ragged couple use items from their home as clothing and hats, the mother is shown feeding her child whilst walking and lets the other eat directly from the pot. Another ironic interpretation of the saying is provided by a scene in the background of the work in which we see a man uninhibitedly opening his bowels over the side of a boat - “higher necessity” also leads to rules being broken. Venne included the old saying “noot breeckt wet” in his book “Sinne-vonck op den Hollandschen Turf”, an ironic homage to the 1634 peat market in The Hague. There is at least one further version of this previously unpublished painting, the whereabouts of which is currently unknown. This signed work dated 1633 was published by Annelies Plokker (see Adriaen Pietersz. van de Venne, de grisailles met spreukbanden, Leuven/Amersfoort 1984, no. 75, p. 190-191) and most likely originates from the Kohen collection (see the auction catalogue of Dorotheum, Vienna, 7th May 1923, lot 40a). This depiction, which is also recorded in a photograph in the archive of the RKD, varies in several details, most notably in the man's right glove and the opening of the pot in the woman's hand. Mag. Christina Felzmann carried out an extensive research report on the provenance of the present work (Vienna, 15th September 2021), which can be viewed upon request.

C'est après avoir emménagé à La Haye à partir de 1625 qu'il abandonne son style aimable pour se consacrer aux tableaux monochromes qui firent sa célébrité, illustrant la vie modeste de la campagne lors de réjouissances villageoises avec une tonalité toujours moralisatrice en utilisant les figures de gueux, indigents, ou encore filles de joie. Ainsi ses 'grauwtjes' (ainsi étaient nommées au XVIIe siècle les grisailles en Hollande) sont souvent assorties de proverbes ou légendes comme en partie inférieure de notre panneau - " Wellust " signifiant luxure - et prolonge le discours des peintres du XVIe siècle qui interrogent sur le sens de la folie.

(Delft 1589–1662 The Hague) An illustration of a Dutch proverb with two peddlers and their merchandise, inscribed: ‘om the winst te doen’, oil on panel, 33 x 26 cm, framed Provenance: Private collection, The Netherlands We are grateful to Luuk Pijl for confirming the attribution. His written report accompanies the present lot. Pijl: ‘A full generation older than Rembrandt, Adriaen van de Venne was among the most important Dutch masters of his day. He was a significant figure during the period sometimes referred to as the dawn of the Golden Age. He painted allegories, genre subjects and portraits, as well as a miniatures, book illustrations and designs for political satires. Born in Delft, but according to the writer on the arts, Arnold Houbraken, he learned Latin in nearby Leiden. Initially, he studied with the unknown goldsmith and painter Simon de Valk, and afterwards he learned engraving and painting grisailles from the unknown Jeronimus van Diest. In 1614 he moved to Middelburg, the capital of Zeeland, where he was influenced by the colors and minutiae of the works by Jan Brueghel the Elder and the satire of his father Pieter Brueghel the Elder. That year he painted the important Fishing for Souls (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), an ironic commentary on the Catholic and Protestant troubles during the Eighty Years War that split the border between the Northern from the Southern Netherlands. Van de Venne moved to The Hague and joined the Guild of Saint Luke in 1625, taking the position of dean in 1637. He was one of the founding members of Confrerie Pictura, a group masters who worked on improving the independent status and social position of the artist in Dutch society by encouraging a more academic approach to the arts. He died in The Hague in 1662. From 1620 onwards, Van de Venne made numerous grisailles featuring peasants, beggars, thieves and fools as illustrations of current proverbs and sayings. This widely dispersed work made him famous during his lifetime. Many of them contain a parole deriving from the moralist works of Jacob Cats. The lion share of these works are executed in the grisaille or brunaille technique, but some, such as the present work, are painted in a more colorful palette. The subject of the present work is written on the banderole: om de winst te doen (all about profit). It ridicules the greedy, money nuts, peddler couple, that carry their merchandise, such as hats and kitchen utensils, everywhere on the bodies. In her book on this type of paintings by Van de Venne, Annelies Plokker illustrates another work with the subject matter, but her no. 77 is of a different composition (see A. Plokker, Adriaen Pietersz. van de Venne [1589–1662]; de grisailles met spreukbanden, Leuven 1984). She mentions a further version of the subject exhibited in the winter of 1936/37, at the time in the collection of Jhr. J. A. G. Sandberg (Gemeentemuseum, Den Haag, Oude kunst uit Haagsch bezit, 1936, no. 203). The present painting is not identical with the Sandberg painting, since it was smaller (21.5 x 21.3 cm) and has a square format. The Sandberg version was sold in 28 October 1969 in Amsterdam at Mak van Waay, lot 733. The subject is a fine and typical example of Van de Venne’s eloquent sense of satire.’

Der Maler war Schüler des Adriaen Pietersz. van de Venne (1589-1662). In seiner tonigen Farbigkeit, wie auch hier im Bild, ist der Einfluss des Jan Jozefsz. van Goyen (1596-1656) zu erkennen, während die meisterhaft eingebrachten Figuren Stilverwandschaft mit Werken des Isaac Jansz. van Ostade (1621-1649) erkennen lassen. Von van Goyens Bildauffassung rührt wohl auch die Tiefenwirkung der vorliegenden Stadtlandschaft, erzeugt durch bewusste perspektivische Verjüngung bis zum Horizont. Besonders auffällig ist hier der Kontrast zwischen dem tonigen Hintergrund und den markant von links beleuchteten, detailgenau wiedergebenen Figuren, insbesondere des rechten Vordergrunds sowie der am Boden verstreuten Beeren und Blätter, neben gefüllten Körben.

Expo: Düsseldorf, Galerie Stern, najaar 1934, nr. 84 Een boerengezelschap speelt 'handjeklap', een spel waarbij een man zich geblinddoekt in de schoot van een vrouw legt, de handen achter de rug houdt en vervolgens moet raden wie er op zijn handen tikt. De voorstelling houdt een duidelijke waarschuwing in tegen het spelen van ijdele spelletjes. De Brune wijdde er zijn 'Emblemata of Sinne-werck' (Amsterdam, 1661, 231, XXXII) een embleem aan met een plaat door Van de Venne ontworpen onder het motto: 'Een hoeren schoot is duyvels boot', waarbij hij in het commentaar waarschuwt tegen 'het vuyl bejagh der wel-lusten'. Bron: Annelies Plokker, Adriaen Pietersz. Van De Venne (1589-1662), De Grisailles met Spreukbanden, Acco, Leuven, 1984, p. 227-228. Vanaf 1625 legt de veelzijdige kunstenaar Adriaen Van de Venne zich steeds meer toe op de grisailleschilderkunst, een genre waarvan hij als grondlegger wordt beschouwd. Waar grisailles voorheen als medium werden gebruikt voor voorbereidende studies of ontwerpen voor prenten, kiest hij de monochrome bruine of grijze tinten om een veelheid aan onderwerpen in uit te beelden. Vele elementen in onderhavig schilderij maken van dit werk een prachtig voorbeeld van het oeuvre waar Van de Venne zo bekend mee geworden is. Naast de reeds genoemde en door hem geperfectioneerde grisailletechniek is de integratie van woord in beeld eveneens een bijzonder element in zijn schilderkunst. Van de Venne maakt hiervoor gebruik van een spreukband, vaak met gotisch opschrift. Deze spreuken kunnen zowel volkse gezegdes zijn ('Oncken maakt Onmin', 'Hoe geleerder hoe verkeerder') als woordspelingen ('Arme Weelde', 'Lief Gerief'), maar hun bedoeling is steeds de kijker tot denken aanzetten. Van de Venne noemde zijn kunst dan ook -met een zelf verzonnen woord- 'Sinne-kunst', kunst waarbij het beeld met een innerlijke zin verbonden moet worden. De woorden zijn meer dan enkel een verklaring voor het beeld, de schrijver-schilder wilt zijn publiek onderwijzen, misstanden aanklagen en geeft aldus een didactisch-moraliserende betekenislaag aan zijn schilderijen. Dankzij het staand personage links dat de toeschouwer aankijkt, probeert hij de kijker trouwens nog meer rechtstreeks te betrekken bij het werk. De kunstenaar is gefascineerd door het leven van de 'gewone man', diens deugden en ondeugden, en plaatst hem prominent op de voorgrond. Hij schildert kermissen, openluchttaferelen met boeren, bedelaars, troubadours en zwervers. Hij waarschuwt voor hun lage morele standaarden, maar toont tegelijkertijd ook medeleven voor hun miserie. Van de Vennes monochrome schilderijen, destijds minachtend 'grauwtjes' genoemd, werden lange tijd miskend, maar worden de laatste jaren steeds meer naar waarde geschat. Het zijn dan ook bijzondere auteurswerken waarin de kunstenaar met een subtiel spel van grijze of bruine tinten en een meesterlijk gebruik van het licht ons een zeer persoonlijk, tragikomisch beeld schetst van het leven zoals het is. 61 x 77 (82 x 96 (met kader))

        • Adriaen Pietersz van de Venne, 'T WIL AL RAAPEN'
          Nov. 14, 2015

          Adriaen Pietersz van de Venne, 'T WIL AL RAAPEN'

          Est: €9,000 - €10,000

          In the centre of this composition is a man holding a basket of swedes and scattering them before a group of people before him who gather them up eagerly. The banderole reading “T WIL AL RAAPEN” is a play on words: The Netherlandish “rapen” means “to gather”, whilst “rape” is the Dutch word for turnip.This piece belongs to a series of works by van de Venne which all incorporate a similar banderole. Grisaille technique was highly popular during the artist's lifetime. The lack of additional colour demanded more precise brushwork in order for the artist to accurately depict shapes, structures and atmosphere.
