Still Life by Severin Roesen Featured in Upcoming Thomaston Place Auction Galleries EventJul 10, 2021 11:00 EDT
17th-century painter Severin Roesen was famous for his fruit and wicker basket paintings. These traditional Dutch still lifes often delivered warm colors and an accurate portrayal of fruits and other objects. Unlike other Dutch still lifes of the time, Roesen’s work did not convey warnings regarding life’s brevity. Severin Roesen’s highly detailed compositions instead celebrated nature’s bounties. The upcoming Thomaston Place Auction Galleries sale presents a lush still life by Severin Roesen. The single-tier oil painting features an arrangement of fruits, a nest with eggs, and a glass placed on a marble pediment. It showcases Roesen’s signature brushwork and detailed motifs.
Another highlight is series of landscape paintings by seminal folk artist Earl Cunningham. The catalog offers an oil on Masonite piece titled Fantasy Island, which depicts coastal areas of Maine. Bidders can also consider a selection of rugs and carpets, including a meshed carpet. Introduced during the 15th century, these classical prayer rugs were initially called Perez Topaki rugs. The available cotton wool carpet features blue and maroon flowers, rosettes, and vines.
The auction also offers John Marriott Blashfield’s Statue of Venus sculpture, a pocket sundial by Johann Martin Willebrand, a J. Harris & Son weathervane, and an oil painting by Frederick Arthur Bridgman. Interested collectors can explore the entire listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
