About

Bucolic Scene is an original painting realized by Johann Conrad Seekatz in the first half of the XVIII Century. Original oil on canvas. A beautiful frame in chiseled wood is included. Behind the canvas, a ticket with notes is present. Both the work and the frame are in very good conditions. Pleasant bucolic scene depicting shepherds surrounded by greenery. In the center of the composition, a shepherd boy caresses the female figure on his right. The shepherds are surrounded by grazing animals and are dressed in a simple and classical way. A verdant landscape and a clear sky in the background surround the scene. The composition is extremely simple but very effective and inspires a sense of peace and tranquility. During the first half of the 18th century, the period to which this canvas belongs, genre scenes were extremely widespread not only in Italy, but throughout Europe too. The work has been realized by the German painter Johann Conrad Seekatz (Grunstadt, 1719 - Darmstadt, 1768). Seekatz painted social and military scenes, genre pictures from farming life and landscapes. Johann Conrad Seekatz was trained by his older brother Johann Ludwig Seekatz (1711–1783). He also painted and both took over an order to decorate the organ gallery in the Bergkirche Osthofen in 1747 which they carried out together. From 1753, Johann Conrad Seekatz worked as a court painter in Darmstadt. He also traveled to Frankfurt am Main with Goethe's father and painted his family. Some of these pictures are exhibited in the Goethe House in Frankfurt . His repertoire included small-format religious, mythological and historical images. Seekatz also painted realistic genre pictures from the bourgeois milieu and landscapes in the Dutch style. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
