TEFAF Maastricht 2019
For twenty years now Tony Blumka and I have been presenting art treasures from times past on our joint stand in Maastricht. This wonderful anniversary provides the perfect occasion for us to make a particularly careful selection of works to show in 2019. We will be taking an exquisite, small, painted ivory diptych in the shape of a book with us to Maastricht. It is an invitation for you to explore the relationship between the Most Serene House of Braganza, Portugal, and the Jesuit Order.
A pair of angels made of lindenwood has a special story of its own to tell. Hidden under several layers of paint when we first acquired it, there was very little to indicate its original maker. After extensive restoration, however, it has since been possible to attribute the two heavenly putti, without any doubt, to the woodcarver Hans Leinberger of Landshut. Around 1515, between Gothic and Renaissance, he developed a formal language of his very own with Welsch (Romanic) stylistic elements. With this work Leinberger belongs to the great pioneers in the world of art of his day. This magnificent work by the southern German master has given us reason enough to produce a special catalogue on the angels which you are invited to read at your lesiure as an e-book sent as an attachment.
We look forward very much to showing you, personally, the angels and many other beautiful works of art at our stand.
