Superb ancestral frame of 83 cm by 72 cm This canvas which was known to date a version made by one of the students of Lairesse, Ottomar Ellinger, is a beautiful discovery. Gerard de Lairesse (1641-1711) Gerard de Lairesse or Gerard Lairesse, baptized in Liege, September 11, 1641 and buried in Amsterdam, July 21 or 28, 1711, is a painter, decorator, draftsman, engraver and a theorist of the Dutch art (United Provinces) of Liege origin, from the end of the golden age. His work inspired in part by Charles Lebrun belongs to the classicism. He was also nicknamed in France the Dutch Chick. It mainly represented allegorical, biblical and mythological scenes, and is also known for its decorations of ceilings or fireplaces. The writings on art, Principles of Drawing (Grondlegginge der teekenkonst, 1701) and The Great Book of Painters (Het Groot schilderboeck, 1707), written according to the courses he gave after he became completely blind, exerted a strong influence on the painters - in particular of the 18th century decorations. His students include Jan van Mieris, Louis Fabricius Dubourg, Ottmar Elliger the Younger, Krzysztof Lubieniecki, Jan Hoogzaat and Zacharias Webber. His painting Lairesse's bill is classic, much closer to the vigorous French court painting than to the Dutch tradition. In fact, he contributed to the penetration of French taste in the Netherlands. he made mythological or historical scenes drawn from classical authors, such as Ovid (The Metamorphoses), Virgil (The Bucolics), Tacitus (The Annals) or Titus Livius, but also borrowed subjects from the Bible, both from the Old as New Testament. He also produced many allegories (among others, Arts, Virtue, Freedom of Commerce, Amsterdam, William III). His style seems to derive from many Italian and French artists of the previous generation, such as Salvatore Rosa, Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, Carlo Maratta and Nicolas Poussin, but it is more like some of his contemporaries like the French Charles Le Brun and the Italian Sebastiano Ricci. (The influence of Charles Lebrun's painting in our painting is important). Among his most remarkable paintings are the Allegory of the Five Senses of 1668 (Glasgow), the Allegory of Free Trade (Palace of Peace, The Hague), Venus presenting her arms to Aeneas (Mayer van Museum den Bergh, Antwerp), and Selene and Endymion, made around 1677 (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), representing the goddess of the moon, visiting Cupid with her lover immersed in eternal sleep.
