About

Ferdinand Voet known as "Ferdinand of the Portraits" (Antwerp 1639 - Paris 1689), circle Portrait of the young lady (Maria Mancini?) oil on canvas (89 x 72 cm., with fine gilded wooden frame 116 x 96 cm.) The beautiful painting proposed, depicting a young and attractive lady, is stylistically linked to the refined portraiture of Jacob Ferdinand Voet; of Flemish origins, the painter achieved enormous success among the aristocratic families of Rome - where he stayed from 1663 to 1679 - thanks to the famous series of portraits commissioned by Cardinal Flavio Chigi, depicting the most enchanting women of the time, and today preserved in the Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia. The paintings became so popular that there was a huge demand from collectors of the time for replicas and variants: that of the "cabinet des dames" therefore constituted one of the Roman fashions of the seventeenth century, so much so that almost every palace or residence could boast a room dedicated to female beauty. This is the reason for the huge amount of female portraits made for the Roman aristocracy and attributable to Voet's inventions, often from the workshop or copies of contemporary authors, to whom our painting also belongs. Although the lack of inscriptions does not allow to detect the identity of the noblewoman depicted, there are however some details of the face, the sumptuous clothing but above all the accessories, which would allow us to identify her as Maria Mancini (Rome 1639 - 1715), a beautiful Roman noblewoman - nephew of Cardinal Mazarin (successor of Cardinal Richelieu) - with whom Louis XIV, King of France, was madly in love. In particular we can see the earrings with the two large teardrop pearls (called precisely '' Perle Mancini ', first belonging to the Medici family, and then donated to Mary by Louis XIV), as well as the precious necklace of 35 large pearls that encircled the neck. Returning to the work in question, it can be considered a characteristic of the artist, both for the great executive quality and for her style, in particular for the amiability of her face, free from that severity that had instead characterized the previous portraiture. The painting is completed by a pleasant gilded wood frame. The painting is in excellent condition and is sold complete with a certificate of authenticity in accordance with the law (FIMA).
