Join in on this fun, exciting game!

Can you identify the artist of the painting below?

You don't have to know art history to play. If you can use a search engine to track clues, you can do well at this game (that's how I play!). It's a fun way to learn about art history.

If you name the artist, you will have the honor of posting the next mystery classical painting. If you are sure of your answer, feel free to post the next painting right away.

BUT - please rename your image. Players will right click on the image to find what you have named it, so don't give any clues away.

Good luck!

Jodi had us all stumped in the last game!

Here is a new painting for you to guess. If no one recognizes it, I will give out some clues.

Hi Eileen! I know!!!! I know!!!!

LOL, well actually it is a male subject. Hard to believe, but true. A prince, in fact. The earring must have thrown you off, not to mention the feminine bone structure and the appearance of rouged cheeks. The ruffle at that time was in fashion for men and woman. I really like how the artist portrayed the ruffle in this painting.

Nickel aha! You already here!! Cool!

Eilleen this looks so european, I am trying to figure around what time it may be, something like 17 or 18th century? French maybe?

I had a go around and nothing yet. But it a very nice painting and also I noticed it is in good shape, or the whoever has reestored it was pretty good. :) Come back to tomorrow to play a bit more.

Bye!! :)

That's right Judy! His brother was Charles I. After Charles was beheaded, in an unprecedented gesture, one of the revolutionary leaders, Oliver Cromwell, allowed the King's head to be sewn back on his body so the family could pay its respects. Just an interesting grotesque tidbit. :D

The artist of this painting was born in London in about 1551. He became one of the most prominent portrait painters in Jacobean England.

Hi Judy! Nice to have some help! I needed some more tips!:rolleyes: Really :wave: I narrowed him (funny looking him) to three and location to most likely one area and choice of painter to three. I am curious as to how close I am.....close only counts in horse shoes right?:)

I am looking:wave:

I decided last night to look for cone heads too:D sorry, I should be nicer but what a brain must have been in that head. Then too, before I knew it was a man, I thought, oh cool, another "Girl with a Pearl" Silly me, I love learning, if I knew it all, well, what would I have to do then?;)

He did seem to have a narrow chin and long face.

Description from the site above:

A head and shoulders portrait looking towards the viewer. The sitter wears a lace ruff, a pearl earring in his left ear, and Garter robes, with the text of the motto, 'Honi soit qui mal y pense', delineated on the right.

Henry was eldest son of James I of England, but when he died in 1612, his younger brother Charles, later Charles I, became heir to the throne. Henry's mother was Anne of Denmark, a leading art patron. The great warship, the 'Prince Royal', was named after him and Pett designed a miniature galleon for Henry's use on the Thames.

Peake was Serjeant Painter to James I and specialized in portraits of the monarch and his court.

Displayed currently at Worchester Art Museum
Massachusetts

THOMAS SMITH, Self-Portrait, about 1680
American, died about 1691
Oil on Canvas

This painting is the only seventeenth-century New England portrait by an identified artist and the earliest extant American self-portrait. Few details are known about Smith, who was recorded as a portrait painter in a contemporary account book at Harvard College. A group of about four portraits of Bostonians painted between 1675 and 1690 can be attributed to Smith on the basis of style. That he was a man of wealth is confirmed by his inventory of 1691, as well as by his refined attire in the present portrait. A reference to Smith as a mariner, which appears in his will of 1688, is supported by the naval battle depicted in the vista to the left, which includes ships flying British and Dutch flags.

I still wonder what is he holding?? :)

Hi Guys,

I am not used to get it so quik and didnt think I would be the luck one to get it. :D So it took me while to choose a painting. Sorry!

I ran into this artist while I was searching for another painting the and I bookmarked it as I found his paintings really breathtaking and I never saw them before. He painted many royal people of his time and he was an European painter.

Good luck! :wave:

Hi Nickel and Barb, gourgeous painting isnt it? I cant stop looking into his paintings. Yeah Barb, 19th century, 1843 the year was painted. Among his paintings we find princess, empress, countess, duchess, etc....

Enjoy the searching, I will be back later to check on you guys!!

12-12-2005, 08:48 AM
I don't want to put up the next painting, since I have the terrible knack of "stumping" eveyone, so Barb- you can do it for me!
This is a Portrait of Leonilla, Princess of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn
painted by Franz Xaver Winterhalter
German, Germany, 1843
Oil on canvas
56 x 83 1/2 in.
I know this painting and his work quite well. So it was an easy one!:D

Here is some info on the painting and the woman:
In a daring pose reminiscent of harem scenes and odalisques, the Princess Leonilla of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn reclines on a low Turkish sofa on a veranda overlooking a lush tropical landscape. Only her unassailable social position made it possible for Franz Xaver Winterhalter to use such a sensual pose for a full-length portrait in Paris in 1843.


Known for her great beauty and intellect, the Princess is resplendent in a luxurious gown of ivory silk moiré with a pink sash around her waist. A deep purple mantle wraps around her back and falls across her smooth arms. Under carefully arched eyebrows, her heavy lidded eyes gaze languidly at the viewer while she artfully toys with the large pearls around her neck. Winterhalter contrasted sumptuous fabrics and vivid colors against creamy flesh to heighten the sensuality of the pose, the model, and the luxuriant setting.

Ho Ho Ho!

It is the Feast of Saint Nickels opps Nicholas by Jan Steen :)


Jan Steen 1625/6-1679

Great Dutch Painter, son of a brewer, born in Leyden, Jan Steen was thought to be a student of Adriaen van Ostade and Jan van Goyen, whose daughter he married.

No contemporary matched his ability. He lived in the Hague, Leyden and maybe Delft and settled in Haarlem in 1661. In 1670 he moved back to Leyden when he inherited a house and lived there until his death.

He painted mostly scenes of humorous contemporary life with emphasizes on moral commentary.

I just love the boy crying his eyes out in the back. So real at Christmastime, emotions run wild and momma/grandmomma has to hold it all together:)

Hint :)

* * *
A MAN and a ????? once drank together in token of a bond of alliance being formed between them. One very cold wintry day, as they talked, the Man put his fingers to his mouth and blew on them. When the ????? asked the reason for this, he told him that he did it to warm his hands because they were so cold. Later on in the day they sat down to eat, and the food prepared was quite scalding. The Man raised the hot soup to his mouth and blew on it. When the ????? again inquired the reason, he said that he did it to cool the broth, which was too hot. "I can no longer consider you as a friend," said the ?????, "a fellow who with the same breath blows hot and cold."

Hint

How far advance are females today when we look back at the lives of women in history?

This painter is regarded as the first woman in Western Europe to develop a professional career as an artist.

Married at 25, her husband also a painter worked as his wife’s assistant in the studio and managed their 11 children.

For over 20 years she was the portraitist of choice among the women of her city.

In addition to portraits that were typical for women painters of her time, she was commissioned to paint religious and mythological themes among them nudes just the same as male artist.

OK, Clue: There is a certain degree of irony in the fact that while this painting clearly suggest the Madonna and Christ-child, the subject, in fact, would later become a major kabbalist and collector of a major library of Hebrew and Kabbalistic writings.

Nickel
12-18-2005, 12:11 PM
There are ten million one hundred and fifty five thousand Madonnas:(

I haven't found this one yet.

The painting has a Leighton feel but it also had a Bronzino feeling.

Too many years between.

So hot or cold????

I don't know anything about the first clue, interesting information.

I would love to know more details you refer to in this clue.

Got any more clues? :D Nickel

stlukesguild
12-20-2005, 11:48 AM
The point of the clue was that the subject matter (while suggestive of the endless Madonnas with Christ child paintings) was most certainly not a Madonna. The child himself would later become an important philosopher, theologian, Kabbalist and one of the first great collectors of Kabbalistic writings. You want a clue as to dates? Most certainly closer to Leighton than Bronzino... although the subject matter is closer to Bronzino than Leighton. Look to Pater:wink2: .

Our painter was born at the tail end of the 18th century. He became a successful history painter who was often seen as offering something of a compromise between the lush colors and drama of the Romantics and the smooth polish and immaculate drawing of the Neo-Classical school. He became very well known for his paintings on themes from British history.

Paul Delaroche (aka Hippolyte Paul-Delaroche)

Oil on canvas
Musée des Beaux-Arts, Nantes, France

From the ARC site, scroll to the 6th image (http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/database/art.asp?aid=49)

Imagine how long her left arm would be if she were standing! I always find this fascinating when looking at a lot of Classical and Northern Renaissance paintings.... very fluid and yet, what a long arm!

And for further interest, a biography of the life of Pico della Mirandola. (http://www.wsu.edu:8080/~dee/REN/PICO.HTM) if that's the same "Pico".

Our artist was one of the major figures of the this 13th/14th century painting style exemplified by a courtly elegance, the use of elaborate frames and gilding, and a great attention to realistic detail. The style began in France and Burgundy and spread throughout Europe. Other exemplary artists of this movement might include: Simone Martini, Stefan Lochner, Jean Malouel, The Limbourg Brothers, Gentile da Fabriano, and the Master Bertram. Remnants of this style can be found in the work of Fra Angelico and Botticelli.

Here are a few more details of our artist's work:

If you want to find this piece, you best be looking toward Venice... not France or Burgundy.

You are right about Venice... but the style I am referring to was not the Byzantine... but rather a style that began in France/Burgundy and spresd throughout Europe... something of an international style:wink2: .

but the style I am referring to was ... something of an international style:wink2: . SLG: Ahhh, yes I see what you mean now! Yes, agreed the piece represents a precursor to an "international" style indeed ... but this artist, his family, and this piece are still to be found in Venice. ;) :) should anyone be looking for him. :) :) :)

I did spend an extra fair amount of time looking yesterday. Just not hitting the right nickel site yet I am afraid. But I do enjoy seeing all the things I might not otherwise see, so often I do get sidetracked. :D :wave:



Here is a site I spent a fair amount of time in and new to me to see.

Pinkrybns;

Indeed Venice should be more than a clue as to the artist's residence... but furthermore, this artist, one of the more well-known painters of the International Gothic (not to be confused with the Goths...)

I found who it isnt. LOLOL I trackes about 7 other artists about the same period. NO luck. Also, what I learned was that artists from Italy traveled to France and vice-verse. But still no luck. Well, David great and interesting trip I am taking about this period of art history, but no luck to find it before the new year. Almost new year here, just 1 hour and 20 minutes for the arrival of the new year. :) HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! :)

Gluhwein? (by the way... how are you getting your umlauds? Do you first type it out on your wordprocessing/Word/Works program?) Again Gluhwein. Sounds like something that might lead to terminal constipation.

Sounds like something that might lead to terminal constipation.Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't tell you what Glühwein is then, think of the wait for clues! :D :evil: :D :p :D

Ok, I'll play nice :rolleyes: . Glühwein is a German sweet, spiced, warmed, red wine - like a Wassil bowl or mulled wine, very good and errr, not constipating. ROFL headache giving perhaps, as my recipe calls for red wine plus cognac :eek: :D

I type a keystroke combination to get the ü. alt+129 on the numberpad gives you the ü.

This is very close to the work of Duccio di Buoninsegna, but dont think it is him. Duccio has an extensive gallery of works. His last supper, is so close to the last supper on this painting that you could think they are the same, but it isnt.

David, I know he is from 13th/14th century, Can you tell us where this painting is displayed at the moment?

I will keep looking later. If anybody is looking out there, keep going, for sure a very interesting period!! :)

Mistery solved!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yahoooooooooooooo!!

David I enjoyed the long trip I had around Bizantine and gothic art.

Ok The painter is Paollo Veneziano
Polyptych
1350
(Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice)
He was the principal painter working in the Byzantine style in 14th-century Venice.
