Hendrick van Avercamp (1585 – 1634).
“Winter Fun in an Icy Polder Landscape”.
Oil/panel. Monogrammed.
40*56,5 cm.

In Hendrick van Avercamp’s (Amsterdam, 1585 – Kampen, 1634) composition “Winter Fun in an Icy Polder Landscape” (estimated at 140,000-180,000), the image of the surface of the ice with blissful genre scenes of people having fun stretches out over the horizon.

Hendrick Avercamp is known, above all, for his winter landscapes and genre scenes, telling tales of winter fun. The artist had been deaf from birth, but found the opportunity to relate to others and express himself through art. At 18 years old, he started taking art classes with Danish artist Peter Isaacs. Hendrick Avercamp’s art was also greatly influenced by Flemish art, especially the artist Gillis van Coninxloo. Hendrick Avercamp taught his nephew Barent Avercamp. The artist’s winter landscapes are associated with the so-called Little Ice Age of the end of the XVI century, while the genre themes reflect the everyday life and leisure of that time, not excluding their comical side.

Hendrick Avercamp’s work can be found in many government collections. For example, Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Stedelijk Museum in Zwolle, Museum Kampen, and Mauritshuis in the Hague. In 2009, the Rijksmuseum held an exhibit of the artist’s work until February 14th, 2010. Among the successors of Hendrick Avercamp are Jan van Goyen (1596-1656), Jan van de Kapelle (ок. 1624-1679), as well as Art van der Neer (1603/04-1677). In 2016, an asteroid was named after him.

Note: Painting in a good condition.

The upcoming auction will also feature the altar triptych “The Virgin and Child between St. Sebastian and St. Fabianus” (estimated at €150,000-200,000), attributed to Giovanni Donato Montorfano (Milan, 1440 – 1510). The altarpiece is created in three panels and only painted and decorated on one side. Each single panel has a frame in the shape of two slender twisted gilt columns holding a segmental arch with a trapeze-shaped surmount, decorated with Gothic tracery painting. The painting style of the Virgin and Child clearly stands out from the paintings of the panels on the side and above. Especially the face of Mary already shows the closeness to Leonardo da Vinci's (1452-1519) image concept whose Last Supper (1495/98) was created during the same period as the Large Crucifixion scene by Giovanni Donato Montorfano from 1495, the only work signed by the master. The artist descends from a family of painters from Lombardy that had already worked for the Dome in Milan. Abramo da Montorfano, the grandfather should be mentioned here as well as the father Alberto da Montorfano. The painters were members of the painter's guild of Milan.

Note: Blemishes on the frame.

More images here.

The artist was inspired to create “Christ on a Cross, Saint John the Evangelist, Saint Mary and Mary Magdalene” (estimated at €100,000 – 150,000), attributed to Annibale Carracci (Bologna, 1560 – Rome, 1609), by Marcello Venusti’s engraved plate. The painting features Mary Magdalene at Christ’s feet, John the Evangelist to the right, and Saint Mary to the left looking towards Christ, who is looking up at the sky. The attribution according to the style belongs to the Bolognian school of art and showcases one of the main representatives of this approach.

Samuel Masse. The paired paintings Venus and Neptune and The Kidnapping of Persephone
Samuel Masse (1672 – 1753).
The paired paintings “Venus and Neptune” and “The Kidnapping of Persephone”.

The paired paintings “Venus and Neptune” and “The Kidnapping of Persephone” (estimated at €120,000 – 150,000) by Samuel Masse (Tours, 1672 – Paris, 1753) presumably belong to the same thematic cycle together with four other paintings, which are likewise attributed to Samuel Masse. Two of those are located at a museum in Warsaw, one is part of the Bordeau Museum collection, and another one is part of a private collection.

Samuel Masse was close to the Coypel family of artists, whose artistic influence can be seen in these works. He was a member of the Royal Academy from 1705. Apart from painting churches, he is mostly known for paintings of a mythological nature.
