Description

An oil on canvas painted after the noted Danish artist Jenns Juel (1745-1802) . The original portait painting is in the State Museum of Art in Copenhagen .

Jens Juel painted this portrait of a lady with pearl earrings in 1766 and it is remarkable . The noble visage of a lady with fair skin and with fine lacework collar and lace hat peers out at you from the canvas.

She is quite a nordic beauty and knowingly glances with pride whilst wearing a very large pearl earring, a rarity in its age in Europe. She would grace any home.

The original painting is named as

"A GIRL FROM HOLSTEIN"

This exquisite hand painted danish oil painting on canvas is dated 1927 on the back of the canvas. it is identical even in size to the original 1766 painting .

Title  Original Engraving by Luigi ROSSINI Theatro di Marcello, Rome 1821

Dimensions

Width 58 cm

Description

An original steel engraving  By Luigi Rossini. Rossini studied in Rome between 1817 - 1824. Having abandoned an architectural career due to economic reasons, he commenced the etching/ engraving, (technically 'Mixed Media engravings') of over a thousand large plates of ancient architecture of that city. The greater part of his work appeared in a collected edition of seven Imperial folio volumes published in Rome in 1829, under the title LE ANTICHITA ROMANE [The Rome of Antiquity, a collection of the most interesting Views of Ancient Rome. Drawn and engraved by the Architect and Engraver Luigi Rossini., Rome, Scudellari, 1819-29].

Collectively, the plates have strength and vigour in their execution, especially in dealing with masses of dark stone work, for they commemorate the strength and beauty of Roman masonry, and reflect Rossini's ability to capture the detail that made Roman architecture so splendid and enduring.

Mounted under glass and framed in antique gilt and ebonised frame.


This is also an original engraving  and is dated ROMA 1821

Title  Large Original engravingBy Rossini of a Roman temple dated 1817

Dimensions

heigth 53cm

Width 43 cm

Description

Luigi Rossini's "Avanzi del Tempio della Concordia" is an original engraving and etching created in 1817. This impression originates from "Le Antichita Romane: Ossia Raccolta delle piu Interessanti Vedute di Roma Antica". It is printed on early 19th century thick wove paper and signed and dated by the nineteenth century Italian artist, Luigi Rossini in the plate. Rossini etched two views of "Tempio Concordia for 'Le Antichita Romane'".

 

Luigi Rossini: The last great etcher of Roman antiquities, Luigi Rossini graduated as both an artist and an architect from the Academy of Bologna. Coming to Rome in 1813, Luigi Rossini's first 'Vedute' were published the following year. Like his great predecessor, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Rossini most often etched his large and impressive views in series form. Some of Luigi Rossini's most famous series include, 'Le Antichita dei controni di Roma', 'I Sette Colli di Roma antica e moderna', 'Gli Archi Trionfali Onorari e Funebri degli Antichi Romani' and 'Le Antichita di Pompei'.
Etched in 1817, Avanzi del Tempio della Concordia originates from 'Le Antichita Romane: Ossia Raccolta delle piu Interessanti Vedute di Roma Antica'. Luigi Rossini began this magnificent series of Roman antiquities in 1819 and the final completed version of one hundred and one large plates was published in Rome in 1823. This original etching is indicative of his fine work from this set.

 

Mounted in water gilt antique frame and under glass.

Title Monolithic carved basalt marble Caryatid figure of an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Life size

Dimensions

Width 51cm

Height 153cm

Depth 38cm

Description 

Solid carved stone black basalt or marble sculptured figure carved from a single monolithic block.

This rare statue of an ancient Egyptian nobleman as a Visier or Paraoh  and is life size for the period with very well carved proportions.

Extremely heavy as its carved from one solid block of stone and weighs in excess of 300 kg.

the arms are carved from the same single block and the support stone near the wrists is still in place, clearly this is a copy of a period ancient sculpture as this was traditional for most stone sculptures prior to freight and delivery  to prevent breakages and could have been grpund away once the sattue was firmly in place.

As this may have been excavted in the same condition, perhaps from a shipwreck sunk at sea, it makes perfect sense that these connecting points are still attached and that this particular carved replica is ture to the ancient archaeological original in every aspect.

Title  Large Original engraving by J WOOD of Speculum Dianae or lake NEMI by Richard WILSON

Dimensions

heigth 73cm

Width 66 cm

Depth 4 cm

 


Description

An original steel engraving after the famous painting by R Wilson of the "mirror of Diana" or lake Nemi.

Callisto was a nymph seduced by Jupiter when disguised as Diana. The scene comes from Ovid's Metamorphoses lines 401-530 and especially 441-465, where the virgin huntress has just discovered her handmaiden's pregnancy and is banishing her. Callisto's child will be the forefather of the Arcadian people. Since ancient times Lake Nemi had been associated with the cult of the goddess. Virgil and other classical writers had described the smooth, rounded lake as the Speculum Dianae or Mirror of Diana and as such, it was frequently mentioned in 18th century guide-books. Her famous sanctuary, the Grove of Diana, was on the northern shore of the lake, beneath the little town of Nemi (in Latin, Nemus Aricinum). However, the present landscape features Dolbadarn Castle in silhouette with Mount Snowdon beyond, though the classical connotations of the lake are strengthened by the introduction of Diana herself, chastising the errant nymph.

Lettered below image with title, 'In the collection of Hen. Hoare Esqr.' and publication line: 'Painted by R. Wilson', 'Engrav'd by J. Wood' and publication line: 'Published by J. Boydell, Engraver in Cheapside, London 1764'; a note about the lake inscribed in ink at lower right of sheet.  original engraving can be viewed in the British Museum .
