Johann Adam Klein ‚The Painter Christoph Erhard in his Studio‘ 1818 this wonderful watercolour is in the collection of the @pushkinmuseum and is on view at @fondationcustodia in the exhibition ‚Five Hundred Years of Master Drawings‘. It shows the artist Erhard at work by a window in his studio in the Palais Chotec in Vienna. He shared the space with his friend and fellow artist Johann Adam Klein who in turn is captured in the same setting by the window at his easel by Erhard. The two watercolours are a great testament to the popularity of friendshipportraits amongst German romantic artists in particular the ‚Nazarener‘ a group of painters working in Rome. #fondationcustodia #pouchkine500ansdedessinsdemaitres #expositionparis #pushkinmuseum #drawings #masterdrawings #watercolour #artistfriends #friendshipportrait #artistsstudio #artiststwork #künstlerbeiderarbeit #freundschaftsportrait #deutscheromantik #nazarener #rom #wien #johannadamklein #christopherhard #artist #draughtsman #printmaker #easel

Jean-Jacques de Boissieu ‚Self Portrait holding a Portrait of his wife‘ 1782 in this highly finished drawing the artist shows himself holding a drawing of his young wife who is coquettishly facing the viewer. In 1796 he translates this work into a print and the portrait he is holding of his wife shows her older facing him with downcast eyes. He changes the image again into a landscape drawing in a later version of the print. This beautiful drawing surfaced recently @aguttes_ with a group of works that had been in the family of the artist. #selfportrait #jeanjacquesdeboissieu #portrait #marriageportrait #etching #print #printmaker #french18thcentury #aguttes #aguttesauctionhouse @gregoirelacroix #paris #auction #drouot #semainedudessin

Judith Leyster ‘Self Portrait ‘ c. 1630 this vivid Self Portrait is showcasing the artist‘s accomplishment and talent and was probably her presentation piece to the Haarlem Guild of St Luke which she joined in 1633 as only the second woman artist to be admitted. She ran a successful Studio until she married the artist Jan Molenaer in 1636 and they had five children. She seems to have almost stopped painting and her work was forgotten and attributed to her husband or her contemporary Franz Hals. She was rediscovered by the art historian Hofstede de Groot in 1893 when he reattributed seven paintings to her who were all signed with her distinctive monogram JL ⭐️ referring to the Lead Star a common name for the North Star amongst the Dutch mariners at the time.

attributed to Jan Molenaer ‘Judith Leyster, the Artist‘s Wife at her Easel‘ I came across this charming small painting visiting the eclectic Dutuit collection at the Petit Palais. It is now called Dutch school but I like to believe in the old attribution to Jan Molenaer depicting his wife Judith Leyster sitting at her easel painting. She is a rare example of an accomplished and successful woman artist in 17th Holland.

François-Thomas Mondon ‚Design for an Allegorical Frontispiece with the Academy’s Coat of Arms‘ circa 1740 details from a large, rectangular red chalk drawing preparatory for a print of a frontispiece celebrating the academy of painters using their coat of arms and allegorical depictions relating to the practice of painting. The rococo exuberance shows that this little known artists is rooted in the decorative arts as he supplied designs for goldsmiths as well as being a draughtsman and engraver. You can admire the full sheet in the exhibition @galeriealexisbordes in Paris.

Christelle Téa at work on one of her intricate ink drawings. On my recent trip to Paris I met the charming, stylish young woman and accomplished artist and commissioned her to do a drawing. She promptly set to work and created a beautiful drawing including a self portrait in a mirror propped up on the cluttered table. Can you spot it? 📷@chrisboulden @christelletea #paris #encredechine #inkdrawing #drawing #draughtsman #artistatwork #christelletea #spottheartist #commision #katrinbellingercollection

Giuseppe Casciaro ‚The Artist drawing in his Garden‘ 1925 to catch a glimpse of this charming pastel make your way to @pandoraom at the @salondudessin which closes on Monday. The Italian artist is sketching in his garden in the hills above Naples shaded by a large umbrella. He would use his cherished garden as an outside Studio where would welcome and entertain friends and fellow artists like Antonio Mancini and Vincenzo Gemito. #detail #pastel #giuseppecasciaro #inthegarden #enpleinair #sketching #lookingovertheartistsshoulder #artistfriends #naples #antoniomancini #vincenzogemito #italian #pastelist #impressionist

Louis Wade ‘Study of the Artist’s Hands’ 2017 I found this small oilsketch by contemporary artist Louis Wade @galerie_fabiennefiacre in Paris.
It fit’s well into the collection which has many examples of artists hands in different media. Often the first thing an artist turns to is to depict himself and his hands holding his tools in a process of self investigation.

Michael-Martin Drolling ‘Painter in his Atelier’ c. 1815 this charming painting is to be found @tefaf_art_fair in #Maastricht on the stand of #GalerieArnoldiLivie. The #french #artist was trained by his father #MartinDrolling and this #genre #painting owes much to him. In 1810 #MichaelMartinDrolling won the #PrixdeRome and spent five years in #Rome were this #picture was probably painted.

Louis-Leopold Boilly ‚Portrait of a Young Woman drawing herself‘ and Deanna Petherbridge ‚Selfportrait-Hole in the Head‘ 2000/01 in our latest blog – link in bio- Dr Hannah Williams discusses both #drawings in the #context of #portraits versus #selfportraits. It seems that both are easy to tell apart but on closer #inspection it is quite a complex and fascinating issue. While they seem similar to the viewer they are two very different #experiences for the #artist. #Boilly is #portraying a young #womanartist #drawing herself which implies social interaction with the sitter while #deannapetherbridge #drawing her #selfportrait is a solitary act of #Introspektion.
