Fine 16th 17th Century Dutch Old Master God & Job Antique Oil Painting Pynas For Sale
God Appearing Before Job as a Village is Pillaged, 17th Century Dutch attributed to Jacob Symonsz. PYNAS (c.1585-c.1648) Dutch Golden AgeFine 17th Century Dutch Old Master Village scene with God appearing before Job, oil on panel. Exceptional Dutch Golden Age work of God appearing before Job after Satan has taken his wealth, family and health in order to prompt him to blame God for the injustice, which Job refuses to. Hugely popular subject during the 16th and 17th centuries particularly among Northern European Renaissance painters though few good examples as this remain. The popularity of the subject spanned centuries including La Tour, Bonnat and particularly William Blake. The quality of the work is extremely pleasing. The draughtsmanship of the figures and architecture is wonderful, the view composed in typical fashion of the Netherlandish School (large figures to the foreground with a secondary narrative in the background among the feuding villagers and clustered winding paths. Excellent treatment of the torso, pose and use of light on Job. Panel secured and in excellent condition. Very clean and presented in an excellent antique Renaissance frame.Jocob Pynas According to Houbraken, Rembrandt studied with him in his workshop a few months after his six-month apprenticeship with Pieter Lastman, before he opened his own workshop in Leiden. According to the RKD he was the brother of Jan Pynas who travelled to Italy. Their sister Meynsge married the artist Jan Tengnagel in 1611.
Though Jacob is known for scenes of Italy, these paintings could have
been based on sketches brought back by his brother Jan and it is not
certain that Jacob travelled to Italy. He influenced Rembrandt and became a member of the Delft Guild of St. Luke in the years 1632-1639. He became the teacher of Bartholomeus Breenberg.
The Pynas brothers were grouped within Dutch artists called the Pre-Rembrandtists. Their work is close in style to the painter Adam Elsheimer,
and there has been a history of mis-attribution between the three,
where the Pynas brothers are known to have signed their works "J.
Jan died in Amsterdam; Jacob survived him by many years and is thought to have died in Delft.
