Risultati d'asta "Sotheby's "

A still life with sprays of apples, peaches, pears, apricots, plums
This is one of a small number of large-scale upright compositions of fruit or flowers painted by Van der Ast.  In one such work, formerly in the Fermor-Hesketh collection1, flowers are displayed in a basalt vase similar to the present one, and both compositions are partly framed with a curtain.  Although he did not paint many of them, Van der Ast made a speciality of painting lavish sprays of mixed fruit arranged in the manner of flowers in a vase; very few such pictures are known by any other artist.  No comparable painting by Van der Ast is dated, but in view of their sophistication, it is reasonable to suppose that these are mature works, dating from the 1630s.\n\nThe Van Hoorn family (see Provenance) produced Regents and Directors of the Dutch East Indies Company for five successive generations, beginning with Jacob van Hoorn (1629-1691), who was Dutch Ambassador at the Court of St. James in London during the reign of Charles II.  This picture is believed to have been bought by the family during the 18th Century.\n\n1 Offered London, Christie's, 13 December 1991, lot 14, estimate £450,000-500,000, unsold.\nSigned lower right: B. van der Ast Sotheby's

A rare inscribed wucai altar vase dated kangxi 26th year, corresponding to 1687
The gently bulging mid-section painted with stems of flowering chrysanthemums and peonies, the lower section with leafy branches bearing pomegranates and peaches, all surmounted by the trumpet neck decorated with a pair of dragons amid clouds and flames, flanking a cartouche supported on a lotus blossom, crowned with a lotus leaf and bearing a dated dedicatory inscription\nThe inscription may be translated as: Dedicated on an auspicious day of the eighth month of the twenty-sixth year of the reign of Kangxi of the Great Qing. All are in agreement that this land is blessed and the two sages have manifested their loyal spirit which has lasted for a thousand ages. Respectfully presented and inscribed by devotee Lu Gaohuan.\n\nThe present lot is unusual for its large size and the dated inscription.  Vases of this type, when undated, are usually ascribed to the Transitional period, but the present lot shows that this particular style, with floral stems around the center and fruiting branches on the lower section, continued well into Kangxi's reign.\n\nThe inscription indicates that the vase was made as an altar piece for a local temple dedicated to two sages. The term two sages, ersheng, was used to refer to popular pairings of deified sages. Some common pairings were Zhou Wenwang and Zhou Wuwang, venerated as civil and military gods; Wen Chang and Guan Yu, representing literary and military success; and Zhou Gong and Confucius, paragons of virtue and learning.
