Bartholomeus van der Helst (1613-1670)-Attrib. "Portrait of a Youth", Oil on Copper Miniature, ca.1650

Price: 6900  EUR

(please note additional 13% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)

Although this highest quality oil on copper miniature was offered in 1991 at Sotheby's Monaco (see our image nr.11) as a possible work of Italian 18th century artist Giuseppe Cades (1750-17991) it in contrary demonstrates absolutely all stylistic criteria of works of the well-known Dutch portrait miniaturist of the 17th (sic!) century Bartholomeus van der Helst. With a great possibility it could be also latter's creation (our images nr. 7-9 convincingly support this attribution; image nr. 10 provides the artist's extensive biography).

Bartholomeus van der Helst was born in Haarlem in 1613. He became the preferred painter in the circles of the Amsterdamer council families and goverment officials and received no less extensive comissions than his colleague the famous Frans Hals. Estimates of his paintings made during his lifetime evidence, that the profit of his work must have enabled him an adequate living. Van der Helst often gave parts of his works to be finished by other masters. L. Backhuysen and W.v.d. Welde painted the harbor and seascapes in the background and J.B. Weenix occasionally added the background landscapes to his pictures.
