Johann Conrad Seekatz (1719-1768) "Angling boys", oil on canvas, unknown version!!, ca.1760
We acquired this painting via telephone bidding at the December 14th 2013 sale of the auction house "Hotel des Ventes de Bretagne Atlantique", Quimper, department Finistére, region Bretagne, France (see our image nr.8). Our decision to buy this work was based on a single photograph of poor quality that was available in the online catalogue. In spite of this painting's clearly erroneous title "Ecole Flamande Fin 18éme", we immediately recognized both subject and composition typical for German, 18th-century artist Johann Conrad Seekatz and assumed that this is none other than a work of one of the latter's follower (the current antique market is overflown with similar works, many of which, in light of this artist's great popularity, were painted still during his lifetime).
Johann Conrad Seekatz (1719 Grünstadt - 1768 Darmstadt) began his studies with his elder brother, painter Johann Ludwig Seekatz. Later, between 1748-1751, he was a pupil of Ph. H. Brinckmann in Mannheim and - from April 1753 - worked as a court artist in Darmstadt. He often traveled to Frankfurt a. M., where he had good friends: J.A.B. Nothnagel and Goethe's father, Johann Caspar Goethe. As we learn from the biographical article about Seekatz from Thieme-Becker (see our image nr.11), his works can be viewed in virtually all major museums of Germany and abroad.
Our images nr.12-23 show a number of other works of Johann Conrad Seekatz.
