About the Item

Marius Bauer (1867-1932) ‘Devotie in de Woestijn’ (Devotion in the Dessert near the pyramids of Gizeh, circa 1919) Signed lower right and titled lower left Watercolour on paper, H. 43 x 59.5 cm With at the reverse a sticker ‘Galerie Assindia, Essen’ and another sticker with a farewell text in German signed by 33 employees of the Scholven- Chemie A.G. in Gelsenkirchen at the parting after 25 years in the firm of one of their colleagues, in 1960.]] Marius Bauer was a travelling artist and the best-known Dutch orientalist. Fakirs, mosques, the bazaar, camels, snake charmers, belly dancers, a caravan in the desert, and oriental antiquities, are the subjects that feature in his work time and again and catered to the need for the ‘exotic’ East in European interiors and with art collectors. The magical light he was able to create in his works reflects his fascination for the ‘Orient’. He was 21 when he embarked on his first significant journey, which took him, in the autumn of 1888, to Istanbul, the ancient city of domes and minarets along the Bosporus. There he fell under the spell of the ‘Orient’, and would be enchanted for the rest of his life. The first time he visited Egypt, staying in Cairo, was in 1894. The second time Bauer was in Egypt was in 1919 when he stayed in Luxor and Karnak for five weeks. That is when he painted the present beautiful view of the pyramids of Gizeh and the Sphinx.

  • Beach of Kusambe, Bali 1937
    Located in Amsterdam, NL
    Four outrigger proa’s on the beach of Kusambe, Bali, 1937 Signed with initials, dated and described with location bottom left Pencil and ink on paper, 29.7 x 35 cm In ebonized frame with white mount WILLEM OTTO WIJNAND NIEUWENKAMP (1874-1950) Nieuwenkamp was born on July 27th 1874 in Amsterdam. His father owned sailing ships sailing to Indonesia and hearing the stories of the returning captains evoked in the young Nieuwenkamp an obsession for distant lands and adventure. After a failed attempt by his father to have his son make a career in his business, Nieuwenkamp attended the Academy for Decorative Art in Amsterdam. However, he left within one year to go his own way. He was an autodidact and a great experimenter with new techniques, particularly in the art of etching. Nieuwenkamp was a very focused man with the discipline of a scientist tempered by the sensitivity of an artist, a lust for adventure, a natural appreciation for ethnic arts and an enormous ambition to tread new paths. In 1898 he visited Indonesia for the first time and on his second visit in 1903-1904 he went on to Bali and became the first foreign artist to love Bali and the Balinese with a passion. Having secured agreements with several museums in the Netherlands to obtain Balinese art and objects for their collections, Nieuwenkamp immediately started to purchase and order a wide range of ethnographic art and objects from local artists and craftsmen. Through his drawings and books, he gave an excellent impression of Balinese art and culture at that time. Since 1854 Northern Bali was under Dutch...

  • View of Dunoon on the Clyde
    Located in Hillsborough, NC
    Scottish artist Robert Carrick (1829-1904) is renowned for his landscape and figurative paintings in oil and watercolor. This painting features detailed drawings of figures in the foreground with wagon, and the town and scenery in the background, painted over in watercolor in rich raw umber and red-brown tones in the foreground and blue green tones in the background. Carrick showed promise at a young age, exhibiting his work at the Royal Academy age 16. He was a member of the Royal Institute. This two-toned watercolor work has detailed figures, wagon with hay in the forefront above a view of Dunoon town near Glasgow as it was long ago. Signed by the artist, lower left with an inscription that reads: 'View of Dunoon, Argyllshire drawn by Robert Carrick, Glasgow, for David Allan'. Verso includes a copy of the same inscription. Saltire Gallerie replaced the cracked and dirty plain glass with art glass and added an acid-free paper behind the work. While doing this work we found an art giclee, included with the painting. Presented in a patterned wooden frame with art glass. Dunoon was a thriving town on the river at the time of this work, and later became part of Glasgow. The view from above the town is a popular one, as Saltire Gallerie has another view of Dunoon from above by Scottish artist Patrick Downie...
