At The Artists Studio – Jan Jozef Horemans II

Jan Jozef Horemans II  1714 – 1790

I am guessing the main subject is the artist helper doing the drudgery of grinding pigments since he is wearing worker clothing and his wife is lower class clothing, but I am not so sure about the child’s clothing and I really don’t know what the creepy guy is doing the in the background.

Details: coat, pallet, bottles, barrel, shoes, shirt, women’s clothing, child, cloth cap, dog, painting, chair, apron, drinking glass.

Boy Turning Spit – Chodowiecki 1746

Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki   1726-1801

Great picture of a German raised hearth.  I hope this boy got a little of the meat when he was done with his long, hot and boring job.

Detail: boy, chair, firewood, basket, food, raised hearth, fire, tongs, bucket, brick, spit, reflector, basting tray, brazier, bowl, meat, spoon.

The Blind Singer – Ramón Bayeu y Subías – 1786

Ramón Bayeu y Subías  1746 –  1793

Now that is blue.  At times we get questions about fabric color for clothing, I don’t think anyone would mistake this man’s outfit for drab.  It looks like the castanet boy has lost all his buttons and has to hold his clothes together with strings.

Detail: shoes, buckles, dog, hurdy-gurdy, castanets, cape, shoulder bag, stockings, sleeve waistcoat, walking stick, neck-wear

I love funky old hurdy gurdy music especially Jiri Wehle.

Peasant Interior – Le Nain brothers 1642

Le Nain brothers  1598/1610 –  1648/1677

OK, I am drawn to rustic 17th century interior scenes.  I find the delicate glass goblet almost funny in the very down to earth picture.  And while they have food on the “table” and wine in the glass the clothing is in bad shape.  What, no bird cage?

Details: cloak, hat, cloth cap, jug, drinking glass, plate, spoon, food, chair, table, distaff, children, barrel

 

A Girl Bundling Asparagus – Atkinson 1771

A Girl Bundling Asparagus - Atkinson 1771John Atkinson, active 1770-1775  from Yale Center for British Art

We are back in the kitchen with Atkinson again.  This painting is chock full of interesting items to study.

Detail: produce,garden tools, washtub, wood bucket, carrots, lettuce, asparagus, baskets, pottle basket, fruit, grapes, table, cabinet, pitcher, jug, basin, mug, lantern, birdcage, bowl, storage jar, bags, bench, ladies clothing, bird, onions,  shovel, stairs, knife, hinges, shoes.
