About

Jacob Ferdinand Saeys (Antwerp 1658 - Vienna 1726) Architectural capriccio of a sumptuous palace with figures oil painting on canvas 97 x 133 cm. (52.5 x 37.7 in.) with frame 106 x 142 cm. (41.7 x 55.9 in.) Provenance: Christies London, 9 December 2011 (estimate £ 5,000-7,000) The large canvas proposed, a suggestive perspective view set in the inner courtyard of a sumptuous Renaissance-style palace, animated by elegant figures, is a beautiful example of the late Baroque Flemish painter Jacob Ferdinand Saeys (Antwerp 1658 - Vienna 1725). After studying architecture in Flanders, he began his pictorial activity as a pupil of the painter Wilhem Schubert van Ehrenberg; despite his election, in 1680, as Mastro della Gilda di San Luca, he decided to move to Vienna, remaining there for all his successful career. Thanks to his teacher, Saeys was fascinated and drew strong inspiration for the works of the Italian Viviano Codazzi (1604 - 1670), a famous painter of architectural perspective scenes and landscapes with ruins, in turn influenced by Flemish and Dutch painters active in Rome. and known as Bamboccianti, who also painted architectural scenes with figures. Our work, with its dramatic lighting, stages an architectural whim with a classical and monumental-looking building, which is unequivocally influenced by this inspiration from Italian art, and by the works of Codazzi in particular, the author with whom was approached. In the Viennese capital, lively from an artistic and cultural point of view, Saeys became highly regarded as a court painter, disputed by the aristocratic nobles who vied to own his creations, appreciated for his extravagant inventiveness and attention to detail. His ability in the use of perspective, the skilful rendering of the constructions, as well as the intense use of light, as we can see in the proposed painting, are the elements that made him extremely famous. We conclude with the state of conservation of the painting, which is in good condition. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The work is sold with a certificate of authenticity and a descriptive iconographic card. We take care and organize the transport of the purchased works, both for Italy and abroad, through professional and insured carriers. Contact us for any information, we will be happy to answer you.
