Lot 1215 | Griffier, Robert. Large animal pieces in the landscape.
Griffier, Robert (about 1675 England - 1760 Amsterdam)
Oil on canvas. 130 x 150cm. Frame.
command was Originally in the possession of the art dealer D. Katz, was this imposing painting as a work of Melchior d'Hondecoeter with figure staffage of Frans Hals. In February 1941, it came in the auction house Lempertz to call with the attribution to Claes van Heussen and Frans Hals, however, remained unsold.
Fred Meijer, RKD The Hague, is familiar with the work, since 1992, by photo pictures, Robert Griffier as a painter of the work in his Amsterdam-period bonds to the compositions of his teacher, Jan Weenix.
After a thorough cleaning of the polluted formerly strong, yellowed but undamaged screen (in order from VAN HAM Aug./Sept. 2017), shines the paintings in the old, shiny and new, and impressively confirms the authorship of Robert Griffier.
