  • Lot 0049 . CIRCLE OF BERNARD VAN ORLEY S. XVI - Arma Redemptoris Christi Iesu

    CIRCLE OF BERNARD VAN ORLEY S. XVI


    Weapon Redemptoris Christi Iesu. c. 1520

    Oil on oak wood

    Measures 53 x 37 cm


    Origin:


    - Private collection, Madrid.


    On the back is the old label of the Board for the Seizure and Protection of Artistic Heritage (L. Galdeano collection).


    This painting can be attributed to the circle of Bernard van Orley (1487/1491-1541), a Flemish painter belonging to a generation of artists influenced by the Romanist forms of the time. These forms emanated from the Raphaelesque school, which had set up a large workshop in Rome. When he held the position of court painter of the Habsburgs, he used to delegate the execution of works to his workshop, only reserving the design or sketch for himself, which could have happened in this case.

    Like a true coat of arms in a Christological key, Christ the Savior and the Virgin are presented flanking a banner divided into two parts: the Arma Christi inscribed in a heraldic emblem, and a curtained helmet on which the crown of thorns is placed. From this originates an arm of Christ haloed in an attitude of blessing that in turn holds a flag with the shroud of Veronica.

    The instruments of the Passion or Arma Christi symbolize the suffering of Christ and include: the column and the flagellum, the post-mortem ointments (after the Passion), the tongs, the dice with which the garments of Christ were raffled, the the rooster of Denial, Malco's lantern, the nails of the cross, the tomb on which the Cross emerges, the spear, the ladder, Veronica's veil and the crown of thorns. Along with this, five characters appear as an effigy, which could be identified as: Saint Peter, the maid, Barabbas, a High Priest, and Simon of Arimathea. Stylistically, against a profound background influenced by Romanism and moving away from fully Flemish formulas, Christ appears wounded and with cruciform powers. The Virgin is presented holding the folds of her tunic.

    It is undoubtedly an allegory to the triumph of Christ's life over death. Usually this iconography is presented in an abstract way, far from other Christological scenes such as the Good Shepherd, which contain a narrative sense. In this case, the Arma Christi function as weapons that invite the faithful to prayer. Although it is an infrequent iconography, this artist was able to count on small antecedents such as; The Weapons of the Passion and Resurrection, h. 1480-1485, Book of Hours, British Library and The Arma Christi, Second half of the 15th century, Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum. All this symbolic apparatus has sometimes been called the Shield of Redemption.

    Regarding its origin, on the back it shows an old label of the Confiscation Board (1936-1939) that reads "L.Galdiano", so it could be a work confiscated by the Spanish state at the beginning of the Civil War. (1936-1939) to the collector Lázaro Galdiano.

  • Lot 0054 . MARTIN DE VOS - Samson is betrayed by Delilah

    MARTIN DE VOS

    Antwerp 1532 - 1603


    Samson betrayed by Delilah. 1601

    Oil on oak panel

    Signed with monogram and dated

    Measures 91.5 x 124.5 cm

    On the back it shows the monogram of the master cabinetmaker.


    Origin:


    - Particular collection.


    This unprecedented representation of Samson betrayed by Delilah belongs to the Antwerp painter and draughtsman, Martín de Vos. Of Mannerist training, it is believed that he traveled to Florence, Rome and finally Venice where he was a student of Tintoretto. Returning to Antwerp in 1556, he joined the city's painters' guild, developing a prolific career as a painter of allegorical, religious and mythological compositions as well as an accomplished draughtsman for the best engravers of the day.

    Painted two years before his death, the scene is endowed with an opulence and theatricality that commend the brilliant Pedro Pablo Rubens. Undoubtedly we are facing one of the most dynamic compositions of the artist. The scene is inspired by the biblical passage that narrates the moment in which a mob of Philistines attacked Samson, now deprived of his natural strength through Delilah who has just cut his hair.
