Fountain of Tears

About

This work, titled Fountain of Tears, is attributed to the workshop of Leonardo Flores, a Peruvian painter of lushly beautiful devotional scenes. The dating of the painting is based upon comparable landscapes and figures in narrative paintings by Leonardo Flores (1650-1710.) Roses are also featured in paintings by Flores, whose name means "flowers" in Spanish. Flores and his workshop looked to Flemish prints, with subtle variations, for inspiration.This work is in part based on a Flemish print by Boece a Bolswerte, "The Fountain of Tears" (1623,) a copper engraving in Herman Hugo's emblem book Pia Desideria. The cartouche under the figures of the fountain and Mary Magdalene translate to: “Mightly from above is poured upon my head crystal water.” “Pouring upon my head both day and night are the waters of this fountain of my tears”. Cartouche to the viewer’s right: “Of this blood, no one knows better than I who has found what love is worth” “Through finding grief that which sanctifies and makes me holy.” This work is in excellent condition with no apparent restoration and presented in a contemporary frame. The canvas is fully relined; and the painting shows 3% to 5% in-painting mainly on the faces and the two cartouches where lead white paint was used. Provenance: Peyton Wright Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico 2008. Private Collection, Washington, D.C., 1970. Exhibition History: Peyton Wright Gallery “18th Annual Art of Devotion”, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 & 2008.
