FRANS’ FACT:
Frans the migrant

Frans Hals was a migrant: he came to the Netherl
FRANS’ FACT: Frans the migrant Frans Hals was a migrant: he came to the Netherlands with his parents when he was 2 or 3 years old. Born near Antwerp (in 1582/3), but he eventually became the Haarlem and later even national painting hero. Hals was not the only painter who came here from abroad. Hendrick Goltzius (Germany) and Karel van Mander (Belgium) also moved to the prosperous city in the north of the Netherlands. Haarlem was a hotspot: the place to be for artists who wanted to push boundaries. From 9 March, the Frans Hals Museum (Hof) has a new semi-permanent collection presentation: 'Haarlem Heroes. Other Masters'. Here the 'other masters' from the 16th and 17th century are presented alongside contemporary art: ow.ly/afiF30nGmUn Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem, Banquet of Members of the Haarlem Calivermen Civic Guard, 1583, Frans Hals Museum.

Why are there often sea monsters included in old maps, especially in 16th and 17
Why are there often sea monsters included in old maps, especially in 16th and 17th centuries? 9 days ago, I asked you to vote: a. 🤔Hiding mapmakers’ ignorance / filling uncertain spaces b. 🤔Market‘s demand for lavish decoration during renaissance c. 🤔Reflecting the dangers for seafarers d. 🤔Other reason: ..... Thanks for your many answers! The solution is: a,b,c,d: All of them are correct! - A. Art historians believe in horror vacui, the artist’s fear of leaving blank spaces on their work. During the 16th and 17th centuries, Cartographers included not only sea monsters, but also ships, text boxes and sometimes more than one 🧭 compass. Most of them were put in the oceans, not on the margins, to fill uncertain spaces there. - A. “One reason mapmakers may have done this, is to hide their ignorance”, writes the historian Van Duzer. You can see that perfectly within the completely unexplored areas south of Java/Papua/Timor in Linschoten’s Itinerario map of Asia: Instead of leaving it blank, the southern 20% of the map are covered by 2 big monsters, 1 huge compass, a large text box and some extra big decorative writing. Almost no land in sight. - B. It is assumed that during renaissance, the wealthy people who could afford to commission a highly expensive map followed the taste of those times: lavish decorations defined the markets’ demand. - C. The expert Luigi de Anna has suggested, that “the sea monsters on the map were intended not only to excite the curiosity of the viewer, but also to dissuade fishermen from other countries from entering Scandinavian waters. If this intriguing suggestion is correct, the sea monsters on the map have an innovative economic function” (Van Duzer) - D. After mid 1700s and especially during 19th century, cartography followed the scientific paradigm of enlightenment. During times of systematic description of all species you could hardly come up with two-headed monsters and swimming 🐉 dragons. #seamonsters#art#historylovers#historylover#monster#sailingcharts#renaissanceart#horrorart#horrorlover#sailinglovers#sailingpassion#16thcentury#16thcenturyart#17thcentury#17thcenturyart#raremap#oldmap#oldmaps

.
One reason purple became the colour
It's #purple for day 16 of #baroquemarch ! . One reason purple became the colour for royalty was that it was prohibitively expensive. A Phoenician recipe for Tyrian purple, dated 1600 BC, involved crushing the glands of murex sea snails: 12,000 were required to make a single gram of the stuff. The fluid was mixed with wood, ash and urine and fermented. Later, in the Elizabethan era, only the queen and her relations could wear purple, while commoners were restricted mainly to earthy colours. The sumptuary laws were repealed or fell into disuse by the end of the 17th century, but pricey purple was still confined to aristocrats and wealthy notables. .

Sometimes even map makers make mistakes! Spot the leopard (pun intended) running
Sometimes even map makers make mistakes! Spot the leopard (pun intended) running from a hunter - under a river. One wonders if the poor creature managed to escape. The first English derivative of John Smith's map of Virginia. HALL, Ralph. Virginia. London: Michael Sparke, 1636. 170 x 240mm. A pristine example A scarce map of Virginia, orientated with north to the right, loosely based on John Smith's map of the environs of the new English colony at Roanoke. Engraved on a smaller scale by Ralph Hall, it was intended to be included in 'Historia mundi: or Mercator's atlas', an English edition of the Hondius miniature atlas, with text translated by Wye Saltonstall. However the plate had not been completed by the time the first edition was published in 1635, so an errata slip was added, claiming the map had been drawn in Virginia and explaining that 'when it comes, every buyer of the Booke shall have it given him gratis'. Being on a smaller scale much of the detail of Smith's map has been dropped and vignettes from Smith's illustrations (as published by de Bry) have been added. The Royal Arms and scene of Powhatan's council remain in the top left and centre, but the large native with a bow is much reduced. A native charnel house and village have been placed in the right corners and other vignettes, including Europeans firing muskets, galleons, canoes, a seamonster and pigs, around the map. Curiously a leopard appears with a river running over its back, and the engraver has invented 'Hall=poynt', adding his name to the terrain.

How we fell in love with this portrait... Content created for @galeriecanesso - TEFAF Maastricht (16 – 24 March 2019) is in full swing and thousands of art lovers will come by to explore creations from the masters of yesteryear to the present day... Highlights of Galerie Canesso (stand 378) include this delightful Family Portrait by Gervasio Gatti, called il Sojaro (c.1550 - 1630). It shows us a father, mother and no less than five children. Their elegant clothing, more pertinent to the status of the mercantile bourgeoisie than nobility, is described in a truly masterful manner, with an almost Northern European detail in the lacework and the reflection of light on surfaces. What makes this canvas really rare and extraordinary, however, is the sense of a snapshot, catching the delicate, intense interactions of affection in this family group: the father is surrounded by the boys, with the older ones in the background. Distracted, they do not look at the camera, as it were, but instead talk to each other. Meanwhile, the mother caresses and indicates the girl, seeming to underline her beauty and maturity, as she is already caring for one of the two youngest children. This group portrait is a new and important addition to the oeuvre of the Cremonese painter Gervasio Gatti, who was active in his native city, Parma and Piacenza between the 1570s and his death in 1630; his high stature as portraitist has justly been recognized in recent years.

It's #pink for day 15 of #baroquemarch ! . It wasn’t until the Renaissance that artists began to explicitly discuss pink as part of their palette. Italian painter Cennino Cennini described the shade as a blend between Venetian Red and St. John’s White, using it to provide the glowing undertones of religious figures and poised gentry alike. It wasn’t until the 1700s, however, that the color was popularized through the fashion and interior design worlds. Pastel pink was favored by both the men and women of the European bourgeoisie, from the Georgian gowns of Mary, Countess of Howe, to the embroidered silk coats sported by the well-heeled men of Louis XVI’s court. Praised by proto-psychologists of the late 18th century, pink was recommended as the bedroom color of choice for the business-minded gentleman for a restorative and uplifting home base. .

"A Sleeping Courtesan," by Frans van Mieris the Elder, 1669, oil on copper, 27.5 x 22.5 cm, Galleria degli Uffizi. . I love how such a small painting can contain such a powerful image of sensuality. Her pose, the stillness of her hands, the folds of velvet and satin, the beauty of her breasts, the weight of her head, the glint of light on the pitcher. In the dark background, money is changing hands, which makes our reaction to the painting more complex. . . . . . #bellaormsethabandonedreading#uffizi#fransvanmieris#fransvanmieristheelder#dutchmasters#dutchgenrepaintings#17thcenturyart#dutchartist#bellaormsethabandonedreading#artnerd

This fine and previously unrecorded portrait by Isaac Oliver depicts Thomas Fones (also spelt Fownes), a wealthy Devon merchant and Mayor of Plymouth, and had remained in the possession of his descendants until only last year. In 1610 and again in 1619 Fones was elected Mayor of Plymouth and the year before would have witnessed the arrest of Sir Walter Raleigh (1552-1618) who was later executed for his role in the unlawful attack of a Spanish outpost in Guiana. During his term as Mayor, Fones oversaw the erection of a new clock at the Guild Hall and also saw the departure of a fleet of ships to Algiers[1], probably with the aim of rescuing English captives. The following year, on September 6th 1620, Fones would also have witnessed the departure of the Pilgrim Fathers aboard the Mayflower, in search of a better life in the New World. #isaacoliver#portraitminiature#thomasfones#mayorofplymouth#17thcenturyart#portrait#mayflower#sirwalterraleigh#simonbevanphotography#jacobeanminiatures#thepilgrims#miniatures#jewelinthehand

Today i want to share this beautiful portrait of a young standard-bearer, a common theme in the northern painting, where great pride was taken in municipal civic guard. I also put a detail of the sword to show the virtuosity of the painter, Victor Boucquet (1619-1677) and to show a typical kind of sword in the middle of the 17th century, who made the transition between the rapier and the small-sword. Shorter and lighter than the rapier, sometimes called « pillow sword » (abusive term), the model represented is richly decorated, perfect for a fashionable young and proud gentleman !

Before the 17th century, carrots were yellow and purple, they estayed this color for thousands of years. Around the 1660s, the Dutch began developing an orange variety from yellow carrots. Though a common story says that the Dutch created orange carrots to honor their royal family House, the House of Orange. .

It's #green for day 13 of #baroquemarch ! . Little is known about the use of green in the 17th century, but the costumes that have survived to this day indicate that this color has been used more in the very beginning of the century. The 18th and 19th century brought the discovery and production of synthetic green pigments rapidly replacing mineral and vegetable pigments and dyes. These new dyes were more stable and brilliant than the vegetable dyes, but some of them contained high levels of arsenic. .

"Brothel Scene," Frans van Mieris the Elder, 1658. This is the painting that got me thinking about my current painting, "Abandoned Reading." In van Mieris's painting, yes, it takes place in a brothel, and all the clues are there: the mating dogs, the changing of the bed linens, her undone bodice, the dissipated man to the left, the couple to the right, probably that bulbous lute is significant - however in the middle of all this business about the business of sex, there is the very lovely, warm interaction between the main figures. She, with a smile, pours him some wine, while he, tugging her skirt, pleads to her with I imagine a sparkle in his eye. It got me thinking about the transactional nature of sex, whether in a brothel or at home. Is each person getting what they want? And how has that been depicted in art? . This painting can be found in my favorite museum, The Mauritshuis in Den Haag, Netherlands. @mauritshuis_museum . . . #bellaormsethabandonedreading#mauritshuis#fransvanmieris#fransvanmieristheelder#dutchmasters#dutchgenrepaintings#17thcenturyart#dutchartist#bellaormsethabandonedreading#artnerd

The exact replica of this very painting of Adelaide Labille-Guiard (French portrait painter 1749-1803), is hanging in my parents’ house, which was gifted to them by one of my friends, who was a painter. Honestly, you could not possibly tell the difference between the real one and the replica that we have. This painting is extraordinarily fantastic, every time I look at it, I get the feeing as though my imagination, is time travelling back in those times, anyone could relate? "THE ELEGANT WOMAN" in her low-cut satin dress and plumed straw hat sits, incongruously, behind a large canvas propped on a sturdy wooden easel. Fixing us with an intent gaze, she charges a paintbrush from the palette on her arm. Two younger women stand behind her: one seems engrossed in the painting-in-progress; the other looks directly at the viewer, a smile stirring on her lips. When Adelaide Labille-Guiard exhibited this life-sized Self-Portrait with Two Pupils at the Salon sponsored by the Parisian Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in 1785, she was making a daring bid for patronage. Adelaide Labille-Guiard had always had to find her own way. Even in an era when the Academy permitted four female members, her path to the prestigious body was unusual. Many professional women painters came from families of artists or artisans, but Labille-Guiard was the daughter of a shopkeeper. Her father’s fashionable boutique undoubtedly sharpened her keen eye for fabrics, but provided no entrée to arts institutions. For training and connections, she turned to neighbors, learning first to paint in the traditionally “feminine” media of miniatures and pastels. Later, she studied oil painting with the Academician François-André Vincent, whom she married in 1800. When Labille-Guiard sent the self portrait with two pupils to the Salon, she was taking a calculated risk. Although the painting’s display of her skills and her body transgressed norms of female virtue, it is carefully chosen iconography, underscored her modesty (a bust of her father is visible in the background, next to a sculpture of a vestal virgin). She won the gamble, the painting attracted the attention of the king’s aunts etc.

Presumably Italian 17th century print by an unknown artist (though sometimes attributed to Dutch engraver Cornelis Cort). The Latin text describes Medusa as the golden-haired daughter of Phorcys, who laid with Neptune in Minerva’s temple, and whose hair was turned to snakes (Ovid’s ”Metamorphoses,” Book 4). 🐍 #17thCentury#17thCenturyArt#CornelisCort?#Engraving#PrintonPaper#Ovid#OvidsMetamorphoses#HeadofMedusa#Medusa#Gorgon#Gorgoneion#GreekMythology#CuratingTheGorgon#Gorgon📜#Gorgon🖼

“I am always learning.” ~ Caravaggio. 
Judith and Holofernes, Michelangelo Meris
“I am always learning.” ~ Caravaggio. Judith and Holofernes, Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio (c. 1607) On 27th June 2019, the painting by Caravaggio (1571-1610), Judith and Holofernes, discovered by the auctioneer @marclabarbe five years ago in an attic in Toulouse, France, where it had lain forgotten for probably over 100 years, will be sold at auction in Toulouse in collaboration with the art appraisal firm @cabinetturquin. The rediscovery of Judith and Holofernes, a long lost Caravaggio masterpiece, is a major event and a decisive contribution to the oeuvre of one of the greatest painters in history. The authenticity of the rediscovered work, which is in exceptional condition for a painting dating from 1607, is well documented. Furthermore, many experts of the work of the Lombardi master have supported the attribution to Caravaggio. It has also been confirmed by a number of scientific analysis and supported by the results of a recent light cleaning of the old varnish. The painting has been exhibited in London at @colnaghi1760, and it will be also exhibited in Paris, New York and Toulouse before being sold at auction in Toulouse on 27th June 2019. #oldmasters#art#italianart#fineart#caravaggio#judithandholofernes#michelangelomerisi#michelangelomerisidacaravaggio#oldmasterspainting#antiqueart#17thcenturyart#socialhistory#historyofart#painting#paintings#antiques#fineantiques#masterpiece#oldtestament#inventiveart#masterfulexecution#exeptionalquality#pentimento#italianantiques#italianpainting#italianpainter#toulousecaravaggio#colnaghi#caravaggioexperience#caravaggiostyle

Extraordinary! Portrait of a Boy by Rembrandt, circa 1655-1660. Although this oil painting is unfinished, it is so charming that many thought it a depiction of the artist’s own son. He is so ingratiating in person that one simply must see it in person.
