(In the style of) David Adolf Constant Artz
"Midday Meal" Portrait of Woman and Two Children Seated at Table

19th Century



Impressive portrait of a woman and two children seated around the table during a midday meal. The work consists of oil on canvas and is signed by the artist in the bottom right corner. It is nicely displayed in beautiful wood frame with gold accents. This piece is an homage to David Adolf Constant Artz's (Dutch, 1837-1890) 'Midday Meal" that was created in 1984. Dimensions Without Frame: H 38.75 in. x W 27.25 Artist Biography: David Adolf Constant Artz was a 19th century Dutch painter and collector who associated with some members of the Hague School*. From 1855 to 1864 Artz trained with Johannes Egenberger (1822-1897) and Louis Royer (1793-1868) at the Amsterdam Academie. There he met Jozef Israels, whose fishing subjects were to be a lasting source of inspiration for Artz. He worked with Israels in Zandvoort in 1859. Unlike Israels, however, Artz depicted only the more cheerful sides of the fisherman's life. From 1855-1864 he was a member of the Royal Academy of Art in Amsterdam. Technically, he distinguished himself from Israels in his use of sharp outlines and bright colour. Between 1866 and 1874 Artz stayed in Paris where he set up his own studio at the suggestion of Courbet. In Paris he maintained close contacts with his colleagues Jacob Maris and Frederik Kaemmerer (1839-1902) as well as the art dealer Goupil & Co. During this period Artz produced mainly fashionable genre scenes and a number of Japanese subjects. His control over line and colour became more powerful. In 1874 he returned to The Hague where he was a member of the Hollandsche Teekenmaatschappij and in 1879 he was awarded the Order of the Oak Crown by William III of the Netherlands. Provenance: From a Private Collection.
