Claude Lorrain (circle of)Enormous Classical Landscape, Hagar & The Angel
Hagar & The Angel Italian School, 17th century circle of Claude Lorrain (French 1600-1682) oil painting on canvas, framed framed size: 49 x 62 inches provenance: private collection, Berlin, Germany Exceptionally large classical Old Master oil painting dating to the mid 17th century. The work is very close in many respects to Claude Lorrain (French, 1600-1682). The subject depicts the Biblical narrative referred to as 'Hagar & The Angel'. The story is told in Genesis 16. The servant girl Hagar became pregnant by Abraham. She quarrelled with Abraham's wife Sarah, who was childless, and ran away. An angel met her by a spring in the wilderness. He told her that the child, Ishmael, would found a great tribe. Meanwhile she should return to Sarah. The artist has composed this picture on principles of landscape construction developed earlier in the 17th century by Annibale Carracci and Domenichino. This uses a balanced composition, often with trees as a frame at the edge. Buildings are stabilisers (verticals) and distance markers. The foreground often includes figures from a story. The viewpoint is less elevated than that usual in, for example, 16th-century Flemish landscape. The individual items in classical landscape are based on observation, but their selection and ordering within the picture tended to improve on nature. Condition report: The painting has been relined, conserved and restored to a very high standard. It is ready to hang.
