Description

ABOUT THE SITTER (identified as):
Jan van Huysum also spelled Huysum (15 April 1682 – 8 February 1749), was himself a painter of Dutch origin (last image 6 shows sitter in later years of age)

He was the brother of Jacob van Huysum, the son of the flower painter Justus van Huysum, and the grandson of Jan van Huysum I, who is said to have been expeditious in decorating doorways, screens and vases. A picture by Justus is preserved in the gallery of Brunswick, representing "Orpheus and the Beasts in a wooded landscape", and here we have some explanation of his son's fondness for landscapes of a conventional and Arcadian kind for Jan van Huysum, though skilled as a painter of still life, believed himself to possess the genius of a landscape painter. Jan van Huysum's daughter, Francina Margaretha van Huysum, was also a flower painter and may have assisted her father in his work.

Half of his pictures in public galleries are landscapes, views of imaginary lakes and harbours with impossible ruins and classic edifices, and woods of tall and motionless trees-the whole very glossy and smooth, and entirely lifeless. The earliest dated work of this kind is that of 1717, in the Louvre, a grove with maidens culling flowers near a tomb, ruins of a portico, and a distant palace on the shores of a lake bounded by mountains.

Some of the finest of van Huysum's fruit and flower pieces have been in English private collections: those of 1723 in the earl of Ellesmere's gallery, others of 1730-1732 in the collections of Hope and Ashburton. One of the best examples is now in the National Gallery, London (1736–1737). No public museum has finer and more numerous specimens than the Louvre

ANALYSIS OF PORTRAIT (Est.c1720)
A good quality bust length portrait of Jan Van Huysum 1682-1749 depicted in a brown coat, white neckerchief, and red mantle. He wears a voluptuous blonde wig with a long club-tied lovelock to the side. The painting is comparable with works by the Dutch prolific painter Arnold Boonen on the ground of the handling, pose, and costume. It dates to about 1720 and appears to be by an artist from his circle most notably Philip van Dijk (1683-1753) who was his pupil. Van Dijk went on to become official painter to the court of Landgrave William VIII of Hesse and then to Prince of Orange William IV.

ABOUT THE ARTIST (Workshop of Arnold Boonen )
Philip van Dijk 1683-1753 was a Pupil of Arnold Boonen in Amsterdam, and also became a student of Adriaen van der Werff in Rotterdam, where he married in 1708.

Later the same year, he became a member of the Guild of St. Luke in Middelburg. In 1718 he became a member of the Confrerie Pictura, where he became a popular painter. Much later he returned to teach at the drawing academy and had various students

MANNER of Arnold Boonen (1669–1729), the well-regarded portraitist born in Dordrecht and active in Amsterdam from 1696. He was a pupil first of Arnold Verbuis, and then of Godefried Schalken.

Boonen painted genre pictures in the style of the latter, representing subjects by candlelight, but met with such encouragement in portrait painting that he devoted himself almost wholly to that branch of art. His style was well adapted to succeed in it. An excellent colourist, a faithful designer of his model, and highly skilled, he was soon distinguished as one of the ablest artists of his day.

Boonen painted some of the greatest members of society such as the Elector of Brandenburg, later King Frederick I of Prussia, the Duke of Marlborough, the Russian Tsar Peter the Great, and Prince William IV of Orange-Nassau.
