    Description

    Circle of CAREL DE MOOR (Dutch, 1655-1738)
    Children with Flowers, Fruit and a Parrot
    Oil on canvas
    28-1/2 x 26 inches (72.4 x 66.0 cm)

    PROVENANCE:
    Siegfried Bing (1838-1905);
    By descent to Irene Bing de Matias (daughter of Siegfried Bing);
    By descent Heinrich Matias Bing (son of Irene Bing de Matias);
    Thence by descent within the family, Uruguay.

    This painting once belonged to Siegfried Bing, the visionary collector and inspired art dealer whose Parisian gallery and exhibition hall-L'Art Nouveau La Maison Bing -gave its name to the famous artistic style, Art Nouveau. In addition to exhibiting avant-garde artists and disregarding the traditional hierarchies between different genres of art such that he exhibited painting, glass, jewelry, furniture and architecture side-by-side, Bing was an important force in diffusing Asian art-particularly Japanese-among the artists he represented. His impact upon the spread of Japonisme among modern artists and collectors in France was enormous.

    Carel de Moor, a highly sought after portrait artist in the 18th century, studied with fellow Dutch artists Gerrit Dou (1613-1675), Abraham van den Tempel (1622-1672), and Godfried Schalcken (1643-1706). Known for painting his subjects to their best advantage, De Moor received commissions from local fashionable ladies and gentlemen as well as from foreign nobles including Peter the Great and King Charles VI, who knighted him.
