ADRIAEN VAN OSTADE, Haarlem 1610 – 1685 Haarlem. The Painter. Etching, c1663. For sale, priced £1000

ADRIAEN VAN OSTADE
Haarlem 1610 – 1685 Haarlem

Ostade was very successful in his lifetime; a member of the civic guard and in 1662-3, Deacon of the Haarlem painter’s Guild of St Luke. It is generally argued because of this, that the etching of ‘The Painter in his Workshop’ is not, as one might like to suppose, a self-portrait, but a painter in humbler circumstances.

An Ostade oil on panel, 1663, now in the Sempergalerie, Dresden, shows a very similar figure of a painter at work at his easel by a leaded window.

The Painter
Hollstein 32, Godefroy 32 xii/xii
235 x 172 mm
Etching, c1663.
Final state, with the verse referencing Apelles, the greatest painter of antiquity (probably added by another hand), and Ostade’s name in the lower border. The plate with the late retouching. On cream laid paper, probably 18th century, with narrow margins. Occasional slight discolouration.

£1000

The painter is shown with two young apprentices grinding his colours and the workshop is full of the usual accoutrements of an artist’s studio, including casts. A lute hangs on the wall.

Francois-Marie Arouet (1694-1778), known by his nom de plume Voltaire, having offended both the French court and Frederick Great (whose repeated invitations to Prussia he finally accepted, being made Prussian Chamberlain 1750-1753), finally settled in Switzerland in 1755. Then aged sixty-five, he resided for the remaining two decades of his life near Geneva, where the Swiss painter Sené engraved his portrait in this rare print.

Volterre made a return visit to Paris in 1778, to put on his last tragedy Irène. The excitement and unexpectedly warm welcome brought on an illness and Volterre died there.

By coincidence Louis Sené similarly met his end on a visit to Paris, where he exhibited for the only time in 1804.

KIYOSHI HASEGAWA, Yokohama 1891 – 1980 France. Site Provençal. Original mezzotint, 1924-25. For sale, priced £4500

KIYOSHI HASEGAWA
Yokohama 1891 – 1980 France

A painter and a printmaker, Hasegawa came to Europe via a stop-over in the United States, after the First World War. He settled in Pairs in 1919.

In Japan he had already experimented with oil painting and engraving on copper, as well as woodcut.

Hasegawa got to know Raoul Dufy in 1921 and through him joined the group Peintres-Graveurs indépendants. He devised his own method of mezzotint, a tonal engraving technique out of fashion since the 18th century. Rather than using the conventional rocker, he instead individually engraved and etched close vertical, horizontal and diagonal parallel lines.

He exhibited mezzotints from 1924 and was influential in reviving the technique as an artist’s medium in France.
