Beigegeben eine Expertise von Dr. Klaus Ertz, Lingen, 31. Mai 2021, das Gemälde an die beiden Maler zuschreibend.

Blumen und Landschaft des sehr gut erhaltenen Gem√§ldes stammen aus der Hand des fl√§misch-italienischen Malers Abraham Brueghel, die Figuren dagegen weist Dr. Ertz dem Historienmaler franz√∂sischer Herkunft, Guillaume Courtois, zu. Brueghel, dessen Zusammenarbeit mit anderen K√ľnstlern bekannt ist, lernte Courtois in Italien kennen. Die Erschaffung des Gem√§ldes wird daher in den 1670er Jahre in Italien angenommen. Ein Putto mit Blumenkranz im Haar und zum Himmel erhobenem Zeigefinger hat sicher narrative Bedeutung, wobei es sich m√∂glicherweise um ein Monatsbild handeln k√∂nnte. (1271112) (11)


Abraham Brueghel (1631 - 1690),
and Guillaume Courtois (1628-1679)
TWO PUTTI WITH FLOWERS AT THE FOUNTAIN
Oil on canvas. Relined.
61 x 72 cm.

Enclosed an expert’s report by Dr Klaus Ertz, Lingen, 31 May 2021, attributing the painting to the two painters.

Flowers and landscape of the very well preserved painting are from the hand of Flemish-Italian painter Abraham Brueghel, while the figures are attributed to Italian history painter of French origin, Guillaume Courtois. Brueghel, whose collaboration with other artists is well known, met Courtois in Italy. The creation of the painting is therefore assumed to have taken place in Italy in the 1670s. A putto with a wreath of flowers in his hair and a pointing finger raised to the sky certainly has narrative significance, while it could possibly be a monthly picture.
