Description

HENDRIK FRANS VAN LINT, CALLED LO STUDIO

Antwerp 1684 - 1763 Rome

A wooded arcadian landscape with a satyr and nymphs, with a distant view to the Temple of Vesta at Tivoli


signed and dated lower left: H. van lint. deo studio./ Ft. Roma. 1736

oil on canvas

49 x 64.5 cm.; 19¼ x 25⅜ in.

Condition Report

The canvas is lined, and the paint surface is relatively clean with a discoloured varnish. A few small spots of visible retouching are visible scattered in the sky, and there are a handful of pin-prick losses, for example in the centre of the foliage of the tree upper right, and in the pebbles just above the waterfall on the left. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals the old, milky varnish underneath which retouchings are visible: small, fine lines scattered throughout, notably in the pebbles and rock face above the waterfall on the left, and in the sky. There are further fine lines scattered in the figures, notably the back of the central woman, and the mother and child on the right. Retouching is also visible to a repaired damage in the central foliage 1 x 1 cm. In overall good condition.

Literature

A. Busiri Vici, Peter, Hendrik e Giacomo van Lint, Rome 1987, p. 225, cat. no. 270, reproduced.

Catalogue Note

As Busiri Vici (see Literature) observes, the figures in this classical landscape are influenced by those of Cornelis van Poelenburch. Busiri Vici was apparently unaware of the signature and date at the time of his 1987 monograph on the Van Lint family, but correctly dated the present landscape to circa 1736.
