Monk Painting Portrait of a Cardinal
Oil on Canvas in Elaborate Frame - SOLD


Monk Painting Portrait of a Cardinal
Oil on Canvas in Elaborate Frame, entire view

Oil on canvas depicting a monk painting a portrait of an aging cardinal, signed T. Rosenthal, possibly Toby [Tobias] Rosenthal. Rosenthal was an expatriate American genre painter who studied and spent much of his career in Germany. He usually worked very large so if this is by him it would definitely be a sketch that someone had framed.
Condition: flaking on the painting, and losses to the frame.
Dimensions: 9.5 by 7.5-inch sight-size, 18 by 16-inch frame.

Painting of Reclining White Cat by Edward John Hartmann, Riverton, New Jersey
“Portrait of My Olde White cat – As a boy”, EJH
Date/Period: 1930s (Possibly 1937) - SOLD


Painting of Reclining White Cat by Edward John Hartmann, Riverton, New Jersey “Portrait of My Olde White cat – As a boy”, EJH, entire view

Measurement: Frame: 19" x 16.5"; view: 16" x 13.5"

Material: Oil on canvas, original white painted frame, Masonite backing

Condition: Excellent

Additional Information: Painted and signed when the artist was about 12-years old.
Attached to the version if found a note in the artist’s handwriting which states the
painting was completed when he was a boy. There’s a circled number nearby “37”
(possibly 1937). The cat with large green eyes reclines on a carpet with an empty
wooden thread spool…perhaps a favorite toy.

Hartmann was born in Northeast Philadelphia on March 28, 1925. He eventually settled
in Riverton, New Jersey with his wife Joan. Ed Hartmann’s work has been featured in at
least twenty-seven Fine Arts Exhibitions in Pennsylvania, New York, and New jersey
over his lifetime. His works are represented in the Riverton Historical Society.

As written and published by Casey Foedish in 2018: There were only two scholarships
for art in Philadelphia: one at Temple University and one at the Philadelphia Museum
School of Arts (now University of the Arts). For his application, Ed reproduced a painting
by Fredric Remington called The Emigrants, and the Philadelphia Museum School of
Arts was so impressed they gave him the scholarship! Ed was only able to complete
one year of art school before he was drafted into the Navy. When his first tour in the
Navy was complete, Ed went right back to the Philadelphia Museum School of Arts to
finish his diploma in Illustration.

Oil Painting by Pieter Symonsz Potter
(Enkhuizen 1597/1600-1652 Amsterdam)
TWO PEASANTS SMOKING IN A TAVERN, entire view

According to Houbraken he was the city secretary of Enkhuizen, married to the daughter of Paulus Bertius and the father of the painter Pieter I Potter, making him the grandfather of Pieter II, Paulus, and Maria Potter. According to the RKD his wife was the sister of the painter Willem Bartsius, and he was the father, not the grandfather, of Pieter II, Paulus and Maria. He was first trained as a glass painter and in 1628 moved to Leiden to learn painting in oils. He is known mostly for genre pieces and farm landscapes, and he became a member of the Delft Guild of St. Luke in 1646, and a member of the Confrerie Pictura in 1647 (though this record in the Hague guild archives may have been for drawing lessons for his oldest son Peter).1.
