David Teniers the Younger
Venus and Satyr with Cupid - Old Master Flemish oil painting mythology woman

circa 1650


An Old Master Dutch oil painting attributed to David Teniers by one of his circle. It was sold by Christie’s in 1926 as Teniers. It is a delightful scene in which Satyr tries to undress the beautiful Venus only for Cupid to intervene. The scene is well composed and the central figures are superb. The winged cupid is just great. Fresh colour and in good condition, the painting dates to circa 1650. Works by Teniers are held in public collections wordwide. Provenance. Christie’s London as Teniers. Lot 10 22 March 1926 Venus and Satyr attended by Satyr Sold £4.4 buyer Van Duren. Stunning gold leaf carved 17th century gallery frame which compliments the picture 13 by 11 inches. David Teniers the Younger (1610-1690) was a Flemish artist born in Antwerp, the son of David Teniers the Elder. His son David Teniers III and his grandson David Teniers IV were also painters. His wife Anna, née Anna Breughel, was the daughter of Jan Brueghel the Elder and the granddaughter of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Through his father he was indirectly influenced by Elsheimer and by Rubens. The influence of Adriaen Brouwer can be traced to the outset of his career. There is no evidence, however, that either Rubens or Brouwer interfered in any way with Teniers's education, and Smith (Catalogue Raisonné) may be correct in supposing that the admiration which Brouwer's pictures at one time excited alone suggested to the younger artist his imitation of them. The only trace of personal relations having existed between Teniers and Rubens is the fact that the ward of the latter, Anne Breughel, the daughter of Jan (Velvet) Breughel, married Teniers in 1637.
