Van Dyck - Double portrait

 Van Dyck - Thomas Killigrew and William,Lord Crofts,1638.

Buckingham Palace

Van Dyck - Lord John Stuart et son frère Lord Bernard Stuart vers 1638.
huile sur toile

 Lord John and Lord Bernard Stuart, sons of the third Duke of Lennox, were killed fighting in the civil war in 1644 and 1645 respectively. They had participated in the European culture promoted by Charles I, posing for this painting just before a proposed Grand Tour. They were in their 20s when they died - and in their teens in this painting.

Inspirations and influences: Gainsborough made a copy of this painting, and Sir Joshua Reynolds was also influenced by Van Dyck's hyperbole. In reaction against this kind of glamour portrait, Oliver Cromwell insisted, when he posed for an official image, that it be plain and accurate, warts and all.

Cypresses was painted in late June 1889, shortly after Van Gogh began his yearlong stay at the asylum in Saint-Rémy. The subject, which he found "beautiful as regards lines and proportions, like an Egyptian obelisk," both captivated and challenged the artist: "It’s the dark patch in a sun-drenched landscape, but it’s one of the most interesting dark notes, the most difficult to hit off exactly that I can imagine." One of two close-up views of the "very tall and massive" trees in a vertical format (the other is in the Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo), Cypresses was shown in the 1890 Salon des Indépendants.

Cypresses gained ground in Van Gogh’s work by late June 1889 when he resolved to devote one of his first series in Saint-Rémy to the towering trees. Distinctive for their rich impasto, his exuberant on-the-spot studies include the Met’s close-up vertical view of cypresses (49.30) and this majestic horizontal composition, which he illustrated in reed-pen drawings sent to his brother on July 2. Van Gogh regarded the present work as one of his “best” summer landscapes and was prompted that September to make two studio renditions: one on the same scale (National Gallery, London) and the other a smaller replica, intended as a gift for his mother and sister (private collection).
