"Jacob De Heush (utrecht 1657 - Amsterdam 1701) -paysage"
Jacob de Heush (Utrecht 1657 - Amsterdam 1701) -Landscape Oil painting on canvas depicting a Landscape with ruins and boats in a harbor Measures of the canvas: width 102 cm, height 80 cm The painting is accompanied by the expertise of Professor Ferdinando Arisi. From the comparison between the classical Roman landscape and the dramatic and passionate landscape of Salvatora Rosa arises the art of Jacob de Heusch. He began painting landscapes under the direction of his uncle when he was a child in Utrecht and in 1674 he settled in Rome. Even before arriving in Rome, he had already produced paintings based on the engravings and paintings of Salvator Rosa. Arriving in Rome with the artistic baggage of the Dutch tradition, he encountered Italian landscape painting and views and assimilated them personally. He has long worked in the landscape, vedutist and marine genre, where he expressed great pictorial quality and the inventive ability to combine landscape and monuments with a loose, ductile brushstroke and careful and precise realism. It is about a living naturalism which is not an ocular description of the reality but a reconciliation between the poetic expression, the fantastic nature and the realistic feeling. He is attentive to real data, he draws by copying nature, his architectural interest in the buildings of Rome is made directly on site. Heusch's views tend to reproduce not the static image but the atmosphere in which buildings and man are inserted. However, even the most strictly Vedutist paintings still show some freedom from direct contact with reality, leaving room for the imagination. The articulation of the buildings, the animated scenes with their unmistakable figures, are the result of the free play of the superposition of the ideal on the real. However, the atmosphere of serenity and calm will always be an essential feature of his stylistic evolution. The use of ancient monuments is necessary not to faithfully represent ancient Rome, but to create an atmosphere. Jacob left Rome in the early 1790s and returned to Holland where he died at the age of 45 in Amsterdam in 1701.
