Our team in Artelisted strives to offer only high-quality pictures from collections around the world. Items with historical value are reaching important number figures under the hammer. Most certainly, the highlight so far was Bauhauskarte Nr. 5 of a Paul Klee lithograph in an auction house in Germany. For the first time a hammer price of more than 20,000 euros was achived for a single picture postcard. Many other results are often obtained with many themes as Thiele, fine art, mountain faces, genre, war, etc postcards sold many times in the range of 1,000s dollars. This is a high-quality, authentic and historical photographic plate from the 1900s to 1920s. This period includes WWI - a watershed event in the history of photography. During the early 20th century, glass plates like this one were a far better medium than film for research-quality imaging because they were extremely stable and less likely to bend or distort, especially in large-format frames for wide-field imaging. The following quote is from the _International Encyclopedia of the First World Warî: During the First World War professional and amateur photographers prepared to document events as war approached. Europe was extensively photographed by commercial press photographers. They documented the events using medium format glass plate cameras optimized for press use and hoping to record a unique personal experience. During WWI, hopes for detailed photographic coverage were quickly disappointed. Both the armed forces and the civilian authorities sought to limit photographers access to events as much as possible. In the very early days of the War secrecy was a bit of an obsession and cameras were used for espionage. But with time, the Belgian Army, desperate to garner international support, allowed Allied and neutral civilian press photographers considerable freedom to photograph the armys attempts to resist the German advance. The result was one of the first wartime demonstrations of the power of photography as propaganda. Now, these photographic plates documenting WWI are rare and highly collectable. Artelisted

Frans Hals (1580 - 1666) The Laughing Cavalier Oil on Canvas
This wonderful oil on canvas is a great copy of the famous "The Laughing Cavalier" by Frans Hals (1580 - 1666). We estimate it was painted during the turning 19th C. to the 20th C. The dimensions are 19" by 15". Frans Hals was born in Antwerp, Belgium between 1581 and 1585, the son of a weaver from Mechelen. He was a pupil of Karel von Mander from c. 1600-1603. About 1610, Hals married Anacke Hermanszoon, and the following year a son, Herman, was born. Five years later, Hals was summoned before the magistrates for ill-treating his wife and for drunken habits and violent conduct. His wife died a few weeks later. The following year he married Lysbeth Reyniers, a woman of doubtful character, who gave birth to a daughter a few days after the marriage. The couple lived very happily together for nearly fifty years and raised a family of seven sons and three daughters. In 1611 he enrolled as an associate of the Haarlem Society of Rhetoricians, In 1644 he served as a member of the board of the St. Luke Guild of Haarlem. Frans Hals much preferred to paint fishwives and tavern heroes, but he made his living doing portraits of the rich bourgeoisie of Holland. His commissions filled the Hals purse but Hals emptied it fast. Between hard drinking, roistering and bringing up ten children, Hals was usually in debt. In 1652, his household went up for auction, like that of his great contemporary, Rembrandt. Like Goya, Hals lived hard but long. Economic conditions were such also that it affected his craft in general. He was maintained by the city at the rate of two- hundred Carolus gulden per year. He was eighty-six when he died in 1666. He died in extreme poverty, and for a long time his paintings were held in such low esteem that they could hardly be sold at all. His famous group portraits are all now in the Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem. Although he was one of the great masters of Dutch painting, his work was completely neglected for almost two hundred years, until it was revived by Manet, Whistler and the champions of Impressionism. He was buried in St. Bavo's Haarlem in 1666. Written and Submitted September 2004 by Jean Ershler Schatz, artist and researcher from Laguna Woods, California. Artelisted
