Concerts in paintings

  1. 1. the visual art is a strange and challenging way to celebrate music …
  2. 2. Concerts in paintings
  3. 3. the young woman keeps time by tapping her fingers against the marble ledge, the singer-lutenist is deep in concentration, his eyes lowered towards the open book containing the musical composition, the young man behind him appears to be straining to reach or hold a note the fiddle and recorder in the foreground Lorenzo Costa A Concert Le concert 1485-1495 National Gallery, London
  4. 4. two recorders, a lyra da braccio, and a lute ... a group of six men and women singing and playing instruments, two open part books, whose musical notations are largely legible Callisto Piazza, Calisto de la Piaza da Lodi The Concert, Musical Group Le concert, Groupe de musique 1530 Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia

  7. 7. one of the mysteries of European painting ... the standing figure pouring water from a glass jar represents the superior tragic poetry, the seated one holding a flute is the Muse of the less prestigious comedy or pastoral poetry, the well-dressed youth who is playing a lute is the poet of exalted lyricism, the bareheaded one is an ordinary lyricist ... the harmony of scenery and figures, colours and forms proclaims the close interrelationship between man and nature, poetry and music Titien,Titian Le Concert champêtre Pastoral Concert or Le Concert Champêtre 1508-1509 Musée du Louvre, Paris
  8. 8. Benson's Concert genres, with their flute and lute players, frolicking couples ... an elegant company with musicians seated at a table with fruit and wine, and a landscape Ambrosius Benson Le concert après le repas The Concert after the Meal 1540-1550 Musée du Louvre, Paris
  9. 9. Titian very influenced by Giorgione … a singer, a harpsichord player and a Dominican monk holding a viola da gamba … a captivating and mysterious work ! (The final clue to the picture’s meaning could be in the direct gaze of the youth outward towards us ... Have we interrupted the concert?) Titian, Titien The Concert or The Interrupted Concert Le Concert, ou Le Concert interrompu 1507 Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence
  10. 10. a bucolic concert ... an owl as concertmaster holds a music book and leads a crowd of birds that sing, shout and scream ... a happy cacophony Paul de Vos Concert of Birds Concert d'oiseaux 1650-1678 Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, Antwerp
  11. 11. a delightful portrait ... Jan Miense Molenaer with his brothers, halfbrothers and sisters, Geertruijt, the older sister plays the cithern, Bartholomeus a violin, Adriaen a lute, Maria sings and beats time, and Anthonij plays a cello, the youngest children Lucia and Nicolaes making bubbles, the painter’s father and mother appear in the large portrait paintings in the background ... (This family portrait is full of symbolism. Blowing bubbles is an allusion to mortality. Making music together expresses the harmony in the Molenaer family.) Jan Miense Molenaer Family portrait of Jan Miense Molenaer Autoportrait avec les membres de la famille ou La Famille faisant de la musique 1635 Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem
  12. 12. red damask curtains have been theatrically drawn to reveal the musicians … comfortably installed on a kind of stone balcony, three singers are reading from sheet music while the two musicians accompanying them improvise the melody the musician on the right is playing the lute, and the one on the left an archilute or bass lute Gerard van Honthorst Concert on a Balcony Le Concert 1624 Musée du Louvre, Paris
  13. 13. a festive scene ... a group of brightly dressed musicians and singers cheerfully following the lead of a concertmaster Gerard van Honthorst The Concert Le concert 1623 National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
  14. 14. in a pristine domestic parlor … a young woman sitting at a harpsichord, a man playing the lute, a standing woman holds a sheet of music the harpsichord's upturned lid is decorated with an Arcadian landscape; its bright coloring stands in contrast to the two paintings hanging on the wall lying on the large table is a lute, a viola da gamba lies on the floor (On 18 March 1990 was stolen and remains missing. Experts believe it may be the most valuable stolen object in the world; as of 2015, it was valued at US$250 million.) Johannes Vermeer The Concert Le concert 1663-1666 Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston
  15. 15. the members of a heavenly orchestra, playing period musical instruments: a spinet, a harp, a flute and a viola da gamba, a angel is holding the score and directing as well as singing the angels` robes sway with movement, as if they were swirling tongues of fire ... these angels have no wings El Greco The Concert of the Angels Concert des Anges 1608 National Gallery, Athens
  16. 16. a forest landscape ... on the banks of a pond, a woman is playing the cello, one of her companions is singing beside her while the other is lying on the grass listening to them the faces of these young women are barely outlined, as if it were the music itself that the painter wished to depict Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot Le Concert champêtre Pastoral Concert 1857 Musée Condé, Château de Chantilly, Chantilly
  17. 17. Manet enlarged the National Gallery picture by adding an extra strip of canvas along its right side. By adding this extra canvas, Manet brought the waitress into the center of the composition. He then reworked the background, adding the stage, the dancer and the orchestra, which are painted in a much looser manner than the foreground figures. Edouard Manet Coin de café-concert Corner of a Café-Concert 1878-1880 National Gallery, London
  18. 18. the central area of the pit, studied, precise and detailed, is a veritable group portrait and accurately depicts the musicians and their instruments; on the stage the dancers on the other hand ​are scarcely sketched Edgar Degas L'Orchestre de l'Opéra The Orchestra at the Opera 1870 Musée d’Orsay, Paris
  19. 19. the striking composition of this musical performance places the spectator among the people in the orchestra section in the shadowed foreground; the eye is attracted beyond the musicians to the singer in a red dress, who is strongly illuminated by the footlights ... Edgar Degas Le Café-Concert des Ambassadeurs Café-Concert at Les Ambassadeurs 1876 Musée des Beaux-Arts, Lyon
  20. 20. the musically flickering, warm candlelight of the theatrically illuminated concert room in Sanssouci ... the King of Prussia, a passionately keen flautist is playing on the occasion of a visit from his sister, the Margravine of Bayreuth Adolph von Menzel Flute Concert with Frederick the Great in Sanssouci Concert de Flûte de Frédéric II, le Grand, au Château de Sanssouci 1850-1852 Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin
  21. 21. a favourite home entertainment, a musical concertat home a family dressed in a 17th century Dutch costume, a upset jug, traditional symbol of loose living a dog, ears back, a sign that something is bothering him and a tousled raven ... poor bird, is clearly distressed by the dissonance of human music ! Fritz von Uhde Family Concert Concert en famille 1881 Wallraf-Richartz-Museum & Fondation Corboud, Cologne
