Catalogue Note

The painting is accompanied by a certificate issued by Andrea Busiri Vici dated 1984 attesting to the authenticity of the work.

Frans van Bloemen, despite being born in Antwerp, also illustrates this Paris-Rome connection which is the common link of the collection that we present.
Before settling in Rome, counting siblings as painters, he left Antwerp with one of his brothers for Paris where he lived for two years. Nicknamed, by his friends from the Bentvueghels group (collective of Dutch and Flemish artists mostly active in Rome between 1620 and 1720), the Orizzonte because of his Arcadian landscapes with low horizons, he never left the Eternal City. Frans van Bloemen is the artist par excellence of the Roman countryside. In his landscapes, the Eternal City is never far and very often one distinguishes its outline. His landscapes are imbued with a Classicism inherited from Lorrain and Gaspard Dughet. His clientele, mostly from Roman nobility, liked to have their villas depicted. Among his prestigious patrons we can list the Queen of Spain, Elisabeth Farnese and the Pope. In his vedute, bathed in the golden light typical of Italy, the blending of realistic representations of nature and Arcadian scenes made him successful. According to Busiri Vici, the real protagonists of his works are trees which often frame a depiction of successive planes allowing the spectator to walk in this countryside filled with poetry.
