Massive Oil Paintings by 17th-Century Dutch Old Masters Come to Sale with NY ElizabethSep 01, 2023 12:00 EDT
German American artist Albert Bierstadt was renowned for his extensive landscapes of the American West. He traveled several times westward during the Expansion movement, along with land surveyor Frederick W. Lander, to paint on location. He was also a member of the Hudson River School, celebrated for their romantic portrayals of scenery. A 19th-century landscape oil work by Bierstadt is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from NY Elizabeth. The painting exemplifies how fascinated the artist was by the beauty of the Wild West.
A large oil painting on canvas by Angelo Maria Costa also leads the catalog. Belonging to the Italian Neapolitan School, he depicted Posillipo from the Riviera di Chiaia. The work portrays both the region’s natural and cultural character. Two massive noteworthy paintings by Dutch Old Master artists of the 17th century are striking oil artworks. Marked VG 1640, one is a rare and interesting riverscape from the Dutch Golden Period. The other work is a large scale depiction titled Marriage of the Virgin related to Rubens and his studio.
