A Masterpiece by Sir Anthony van Dyck – Portrait of Princess Mary, daughter of King Charles I of England

A Masterpiece by Sir Anthony van Dyck – Portrait of Princess Mary, daughter of King Charles I of England

A MASTERPIECE BY SIR ANTHONY VAN DYCK
Portrait of Princess Mary, daughter of King Charles I of England

 

*One of the most important European Royal Portraits to come to auction for a generation*

*Commissioned to celebrate the crucial alliance between the British crown & the House of Orange*

Christie’s London, 6 December

‘In the portraits commissioned by the King and Queen,
Van Dyck produced a series of masterpieces unsurpassed in the history of the European royal portrait’ (Sir Oliver Millar)

Portrait of Princess Mary (1631–1660), daughter of King Charles I of England, full-length, in a pink dress decorated with silver embroidery and ribbons by Sir Anthony van Dyck, 1641, will be offered from a Distinguished Private Collection in Christie’s Old Masters Evening Sale on 6 December, during Christie’s Classic Week (estimate: £5,000,000-8,000,000). Commissioned to celebrate the crucial alliance between the British crown and the House of Orange, this intimate ad vivum (from life) portrait of Princess Mary, the finest portrait of the type, is remarkable for its royal provenance, the superb quality of its draughtsmanship and its exceptional condition. It is one of the most important European Royal Portraits to come to auction for a generation. The painting will go on public view for the first time, ahead of the auction, at Christie’s Shanghai on 19 until 21 September, later touring to New York where it will be on public view from 25 to 30 October and to Hong Kong between 23 and 26 November, ahead of the pre-sale public exhibition in London from 1 to 6 December.

John Stainton, Deputy Chairman, Old Master Paintings, Christie’s EMERI: “This beautifully-preserved full-length portrait of Princess Mary, eldest daughter of King Charles I of England, and future mother of King William III of England, was one of the last commissions executed by van Dyck, in the summer of 1641, only months before the artist’s premature death at the age of forty-two. It bears many of the hallmarks of his remarkable genius – in the subtle rendering of the sitter’s physiognomy, the masterful depiction of the shimmering drapery, the brilliance of the palette, and the assured draughtsmanship and deft handling of the paint. A work of the finest quality, it represents the culmination of all that van Dyck had learnt from his master, Peter Paul Rubens, and from his Venetian predecessors, notably Titian. By developing his own distinctive style of portraiture, characterised by a calm authority and supreme elegance, van Dyck both revolutionised portraiture in Europe and left a legacy for future generations of artists from Gainsborough and Lawrence, to Sargent and Freud.”

‘THE EDIT’ exhibition at HOFA Gallery, Mayfair LONDON

‘THE EDIT’ exhibition at HOFA Gallery, Mayfair LONDON (4th July to 8th August 2018)

 

The House of Fine Art is celebrating what has been a fantastic year of expansion. Following the success of their first gallery in London, they have since opened a gallery in the stunning location of Psarou Beach in Mykonos, a third gallery in Mayfair and have now taken their brand to the US, with a gallery in the plush setting of West Hollywood.

 

HOFA already has a huge reputation for showcasing the work of some of the best artists in the world and this growth will ensure that even more art collectors and appreciators will be able to visit the exclusive exhibitions that HOFA are so renowned for.

 

To mark the opening of the new Mayfair gallery, a summer exhibition titled ‘The Edit’ will be taking place from 4 July – 8 August 2018. This second location in London really makes a statement – the newly renovated, charismatic Victorian gallery space is situated at 58 Maddox St crossing with Bond St. It is a very fitting home for some remarkable pieces of art, produced by world-class artists.

 

‘The Edit’ exhibition will feature some of the most talented artists across the world right now. Headline artists include Romina Ressia, Tian, Robert Standish and Marco Grassi. Each artist brings their own very unique creativity to the exhibition, which will include a combination of sculptures, paintings and mixed media.
 

Introducing the headline artists

Tian graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 1997, specialising in printmaking and working for some time as a photographer. His work stems from the notion of a utopian vision for his Chinese nation.

Romina Ressia is an Argentinian artist with a background in fashion photography. Her main influences come from classic paintings and she is famed for her anachronisms and the use of the absurd/irony to approach modern issues.
