About

Circle of Jan Josef Horemans the Elder (1682–1759) "Courtly company in the tavern" This genre work is most likely an allegory of vice. The references to gambling, excessive drinking and the consequences of letting go of ones own inhibitions are expertly conveyed with the use of tonality, symbolism and composition. Often genre works of the period by Horemans the Elder, would explore undertone themes of social etiquette and class identification as well as acting as a somewhat comical commentary on the everyday lives of his fellow countrymen, their professions and pastimes. Jan Josef Horemans the Elder was a Flemish painter of the 18th-century, known mainly for his genre scenes, but he also painted portraits and historical allegories. Horemans had a muted palette as his colours were rather dark, consequently he was often referred to as 'le brun' and 'le sombre'. The work appears unsigned, however as the relining was undertaken sometime ago, we have been advised that it is possible that the work has lost some of its dimension in the relining process, subsequently possibly a signature and date. Markings verso possibly "C 7648" on stretcher, may indicate inventory numbering or sale catalogue. This work came from a large collection of significant European paintings may of which have been recently exported back to Europe.
