This charming portrait is by the accomplished late-seventeenth century portraitist Johann Kerseboom, who initially worked in Germany before coming to England in the 1680s with his uncle, the artist Friederich Kerseboom. He set up a practice in London as a painter of portraits, where he met with greater success than his elder relative. A number of his works were engraved in mezzotint, of which eight are known. Though the postures and designs of Johann Kerseboom’s portraits often follow the formulaic patterns first seen in the works of Sir Peter Lely and Sir Godfrey Kneller, the characterisation of his heads have an individuality all their own. Collins Baker remarked that they have a ‘temper of… a certain austerity and sadness…marked characteristics that (he)…found in the work of not other painter’. The introduction of a faithful hound into our composition, looking keenly upwards at his young master in anticipation of some treat, is also found in the full-length portrait painted circa 1685 of Edward Russell, 5th Earl of Bedford (Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire). This painting features in our online summer exhibition: “Old Masters | New Collectors”, viewable on our website and our Artsy profile (link in bio). Attributed to Johann Kerseboom (d.1708) “Two Children, said to be Emily and Robert Cecil” Oil on canvas: 29 ½ x 28 in. (74.5 x 71 cm.)

jacquiansell. Some stunning bewigged gentlemen by Sir Godfrey Kneller to add eleganc

Some stunning bewigged gentlemen by Sir Godfrey Kneller to add elegance to our day. All were members of the Kit-Cat club and painted in the early 1700s. Samuel Pepys records buying his first wig in 1663 (a fashion from the court of Louis XIV). Wigs grew in length in the 1680s and in height from the 1690s. The 'height of fashion' around 1710 was a very high crown divided into twin peaks (before height collapsed into width in the 1720s). I love the way in which the hat is carried under the arm (in a fashion known as the 'chapeau bras'). As powdering of wigs became popular so did the carrying of hat under arm rather than on head. Our final fellow does not wear a wig - but shows he owns one. The shaved head necessitated by wig wearing meant that in fashionable 'undress' a nightcap was worn to warm a bald pate. Sir Godfrey Kneller born on this day in 1646 in Germany, died in London 1723. Yet another innovative immigrant artist who invigorated portraiture in Britain (and trained up many talented painters). #SirGodfreyKneller #Kneller #Vanbrugh #wigs #menwithlonghair #menswear #maledress #maleclothing #malefashion #historyofart #historyofdress #artgarments #arthistory #arthistorymatters #dresshistory #historicaldress #costumehistory #decodingdress #artandfashion #christieseducation #passionateexpertise #theartofdress #theArtofFashion #nationalportraitgallery #KitCatclub #britishportraits #C18th

Ne var ki ona göre bu acıyı dindirecek tek şey olan intihar, hiç de zannettiği gibi bir kurtuluş olmayacaktır. Yaşamını sonlandırmasının ardından sadece gözlerini yeniden açan Zia, kendisini sadece intihar edenlerin bulunduğu bir evrende bulur. Acıları da olduğu gibi yanındadır. Tek aşkı Desiree'nin de intihar ettiğini öğrenen Zia, bir şarkıcı ve otostopçuyu da yanına alarak sıradışı bir yolculuğa çıkar. Desiree'yi yeniden bulabilmesi mümkün olacak mıdır? #wristcuttersalovestory #wristcutters #alovestory #bilekkesenler #bilekkesenlerbiraşkhikayesi #zia #kneller #mikal #peopleincharge #eugene #desiree #messiah #patrickfugit #tomwaits #shannynsossamon #gorandukic #sheawhigham #lesliebibb #willarnett

How to get a quart into a pint pot . No room too small to take a large portrait. As @athomewithalidad pointed out in his fabulous new book one of the best ways to make a small room larger is to put oversized objects in and trick the eye. Tonight sunlight came flooding in to our hall for the first time in more than a week and made everything sparkle. Nothing better than coming home after a busy week. #art #homedecor #interiors #homesweethome #18thcenturyart #kneller #swaggerportrait #portrait #tgif

The bravura pose of the sitter shown here (Samuel Sandys, first Baron Sandys of Ombersley (1695–1770), vibrant colouring and youthful characterisation show why Sir Godfrey Kneller dominated portrait painting in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The condition of this picture (it has never been relined) further allows us to see why Kneller’s fresh and rapid style was so popular. Immediately noticeable is the baroque use colour in Sandy’s dress, which has helped to show the sitter – “a tall thin young gentleman” - in a dynamic yet relaxed pose, along with the exquisitely drawn hands. #SirGodfreyKneller #Portrait #SwaggerPose #StrikeAPose #ThrowbackThursday #Kneller #Drapery #Gentleman #17thCentury #18thCentury #Portrait

More Kneller goodness. 25th anniversary set. From the series 1 yabby through to the scampy. These are all lures which where released throughout the entirety of the 90's (back when i was a wee tacker 😂). Ive always steered clear of aussie lures and had a serious obsession with Japanese and European stuff. But there are a few aussie lure makers which produce some seriously cool stuff nowadays. It is nice to support Aussies. Even the boxes are cool, dovetailed Queensland Bunya Pine. #knellerlures #kneller #handmadeinaustralia #craftsmanship #mydrug #lureaddict #lureporn #fishing #handmade #myhappyplace #fish #shrimp #yabby
