Pair of Paintings on Panel, Workshop of Abraham Janssens

About

Pair of oil paintings representing two women, one holding a bunch of flowers, the other in front of a mirror that reflects her. Is it the allegory of the sense of smell and sight, two of the five senses? The five senses have often been personified by women who have been presented with different attributes to recognize them. These representations appeared mainly from the 16th century, although there are examples from the early Middle Ages. The presence of the eagle in what is believed to be the allegory of sight, can make us think of a symbolic of beauty, strength, prestige, and pride. This explanation is not to be disregarded, as well as that of the portrait of a courtisan, in both cases. Clean-up, usual restorations (right arm of the sense) Distortions of one of the panels despite the presence of reinforcements and fabric bands at the back. Workshop of Abraham Janssens (1575-1632) Renaissance style godron frames.
