Willem van Nieulandt IILaban Demanding the Return of the Teraphim from Rachel - Dutch Old Master art
This very busy oil on panel is a Dutch Old Master painting dating to around 1620 by artist and poet Willem van Nieulandt. It is an incredibly detailed and colourful scene composed of numerous characters and animals set amongst ruins. It basically illustrates a topic from Genesis 31 in the bible where Rachel has stolen her father Laban's teraphim or household gods. This is a topic of much debate in religious literature. It is a stunningly beautiful Old Master painting displaying considerable artistry. Provenance. Christie's London. Housed in a complementary frame, 32 inches by 26 inches and in good condition. Willem or Guiliam van Nieulandt, sometimes Nieuwelandt (1584–1635) was a Dutch Golden Age painter, engraver, poet and playwright from Antwerp. His father Adrien van Nieulandt the elder was born to a family of artists of Flemish origin from Antwerp. He moved with his family to Amsterdam in 1589, after the Siege of Antwerp, probably because they were Protestants. His three sons Willem van Nieulandt II (named for his uncle, also a painter), Adriaen van Nieulandt the younger, and Jacob van Nieulandt all became painters. According to Arnold Houbraken, Willem was a pupil of Roelant Savery in Amsterdam, and he left him to travel to Rome, where he became a student of Paulus Bril. He specialized in painting artistic ruins of monuments, arches, and temples, many of which he then engraved himself. He returned to Amsterdam (via Antwerp) in 1607, and became a respected poet there as well as Italianate painter. At some point after May 1629 he returned to Amsterdam, where he lived until his death in 1635.
