And be ye of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the firstripe grapes....

13:22 And they ascended by the south, and came unto Hebron; where Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.) 13:23 And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.

Oil painting (on laminated beaver board)

A cluster of red, rose and white grapes among other fruit i(Apples, peaches, figs, pears, cherries)s surrounded, in a setting of antique ruins, by a bunch of exotic tropical birds, among them an ara and a cockatoo having a palaver over their unexpected discovery.

Well executed bizarre and whimsical painting in wonderfully bright colors and great artistic mastership.

This scurrile painting is not signed or dated. Our estimate is that it dates back to the nineteen sxties when the type of beaver board, (Hartfaser) used here, came on the market.

Colors are fresh, bright and clean. Birds and fruit are realistically depicted.

The fact, that this painting is even 12 x 16" allows for the assumption, that the artist was British or American or at least worked where inch-measuremnets are used.

Condition: Without the least of blemish!

Exquisite home wall decoration

We add to our page for interior decoration and interior decorators a series of copper etchings depicting classical elements of home decor, such as vases and decanters, mirrors and oil lamps, pitchers and bowls, bits and pieces and floral decoration. Surrounded by black, blue or red backgrounds these antique prints were published by Auguste Péquegnot (1819 - 1878) in Paris from 1856 to 1863 under the title "Ornaments, Vases and Decoration d'après les maîtres, such as J. and J. Le Paute Marot, F. Boucher, Jacques Saly, Lucotte, Jules Romain, De la Fosse, Antoine Watteau, J.B. Huet, Charles Eisen" . These prints were always published in black and white. We had ours recently colored by one of our most gifted artists so that we may claim to have an absolutely unique set of a high quality standard. Imagine these prints framed, setting accents and highlights in your home. What a joy to look at!

"Silenus", knowledgeable tutor of the Greek God of Wine Dionysos, Bacchus in the Roman mythology. Silenos was a jolly good fellow, always tipsy if not drunken with the ears of a horse. Silenus, son of either Hermes or Pan and a nymph, belonged to the entourage of Dionysos / Bacchus, who cherished his prophetic gift and his wisdom, which he seemed to possess.

The original of our stauette of Silenus was found in Pompei in 1863. „The Illustrated London News" showed an engraving of the statue and marvelled in its edition of December 31, 1864: „During the last three or four years, since the misrule of the Neapolitan Bourbons was superceded by the kingdom of Italy, great progress has been made in the task of bringing to light that abundant store of curious relics of antiquity which had remained for eighteen centuries buried in the ruins of Pompeii. The extent and importance of these operations... have been acknowledged throughout Europe by the studenta of Roman history and the connoisseurs of classic art" And later: „The statue of Silenus, bearing a tray on his head, is thought to have been a lampstand."

The statuette depicts Silenus stemming the mentioned tray which most likely held a receptable for the oil lamp. The bearded Silenus is crowned with tendrils of wine. His left hand is holding a snake which, in turn, holds the tray and whose tail end is curled up on his shoulder. Our statuette of Silenos is, as is the original, of bronze. The casting happened around 1900/1910. It has the desired verdigris patina. The round base, on which Silenus stands, is ornamented, among other engravings with grapes.

The statuette was photographed against backgrounds of different colors. We put a bowl of plastic grapes in the lower photo.

Overall hight: 57 cm (22.4")

Silenus with raised arm: 48 cm (18.9")

Diameter of base is 25 cm (9.8")

Bacchanalian scene. Grape-crowned Silenus with a prankish smile offering a basket full of grapes and fruit to bare-bosomed Venus, who, Amor's arrow in hand, looks puzzled, but smiling at admonishing Amor, who, with index finger raised, holds a torch in the other hand. The torch light gives this painting the intense light effects, leaving all except this intimite bacchantalian scene in the dark, from which the vibrant and the subdued colors glow with flashy intensity.

The oil painting on canvas is by an anonymous artist. Time of painting: Ca. 1850/60. The stretcher frame is the original one. The black color of the extreme left corner has been redone. Otherwise the painting has exactly the kind of patina one wishes for, including the desirable craquelure. The gold-colored frame is 20th century. The frame is darker and more gold-colored than the photos show.

The Verdelho Grape

The Verdelho Grape

Here we witness one of the first attempts using a steel plate instead of a copper plate for printing fine quality botanical prints. First used in England about 1820 it soon replaced the "soft" copper material. This astonishingly fine steel aquatint shows how much diligence and artistic attention the new medium received by the artists experimenting with it. After all they were expected to show that the copper plate could indeed be replaced.

Steel aquatint in original hand coloring. Engraved after Miss Drake for the "Transactions"
of the Royal Horticultural Society of London. Ca 1820.
