You are welcome to follow our current & upcoming auctions on Instagram @albinus_auctions According to Arnold Houbraken, Brakenburgh was a light-hearted poet from Haarlem, a Dutch Golden Age painter. He was the pupil of Hendrik Mommers who went on to paint clever genre scenes in the manner of Adriaen van Ostade. Though some said he was the pupil of Bernard Schendel, they were the same age and painted in similar styles. He was successful enough at his art that his Frisian widow was able to purchase an annuity after his death in Friesland.According to the RKD he is registered in Leeuwarden during the years 1670-1687. He is known for both Italianate landscapes and portraits. He painted similar subjects to those of Schendel, representing merry-makings and drunken assemblies. His pictures are ingeniously composed, and well coloured, something in the manner of Adriaen van Ostade, though greatly inferior. They are painted with facility, although they have the appearance of being very highly finished; and he perfectly understood the management of chiaroscuro. His greatest defect is his incorrect drawing of the figure, which he appears not to have studied from nature. The Vienna Gallery has two 'Peasant Scenes' by him, said to have been painted in 1690; the Berlin Museum one, and the Amsterdam Gallery one. In the Brussels Gallery is a 'Children's Feast,' signed and dated 1698; and the Rotterdam Museum has a 'Doctor's Visit,' signed and dated 1696. In Windsor Castle are two good 'Artists' Studios ' by him. He also sometimes practised the art of engraving.He was the teacher of Wigerus Vitringa, Abraham Pardanus, and Gillis de Winter. He was a follower of Jan Steen. He died at Haarlem in December 1702 and was buried in January 1703. PROVENANCE: painting from an important private collection of old masters, London. Depicting a young girl in a tiled Dutch interior scene, with her pet dog; maid overlooking through a doorway. The painting is signed R Brakenburgh, and dated 1677. Inscription on book reading "aetatis suae 1 jaer en 74 dagen", referencing the child's age as "one year and 74 days". SOLD history: Anon sale, 6th May 1845, Amsterdam; Anon sale, 19th April 1847, Amsterdam; passed through private hands until now. Dimensions: (unframed) oil on canvas measuring 56.5cm x 64.5cm x 1cm.
