Footnotes

  • Provenance
    In the present owner's family since the early 20th century

    The present still life formed part of a distinguished collection which included the pair of beautiful depictions of Swans in landscapes by Abraham Bisschop and the pair of Still lifes by Johann Amandus Winck which were sold in these rooms (10 December 1996, lot 63; and 3 July 2013, lot 47).

    In their vibrant exuberance the works of Tobias Stranover and Jakob Bogdani stand above those of other animal and still life painters working in Britain at this date. Born in the northern foothills of the Transylvanian Alps in what is now Romania, Stranover was taught by Bogdani, whose daughter, Elizabeth, he married. Stranover began as an itinerant artist, visiting Hamburg and Dresden among other places before settling in England, where he stayed for the rest of his career. There Bogdani had established himself at court in London in the 1690s, where he painted a distinguished series of paintings for the Royal Family. Thereafter, during the first decades of the 18th century the family provided the finest exotic bird and animal paintings in the country.
