Johann Bernard Klombeek (also known as Johann Klombeck, German/Netherlands, 1815 – 1893) monumental oil on canvas landscape depicting a forest scene with path, stream, large tree in the foreground with one deer to the left and more deer approaching in the right distance. Signed lower center right margin and possibly dated. Housed in an elaborate, likely original Rococo style giltwood frame having rope twist edge molding and shell and scroll corners. Plaque in bottom center of frame reads "Johann B. Klombeek, 1815-1893." Sight – 48" x 61" Framed – 64" x 78". Third quarter of the 19th century. Biography (Courtesy AskArt: The Artist's Bluebook/Dobiaschofsky Auktionen): The son of a master tailor, Johann Bernhard Klombeek was encouraged early in life by his mother's half-brother, painter Matthias Klevener Tinthoff. Tinthoff may have played a role in sending the young Klombeek to the Drawing Academy founded in 1841 by the Dutch landscape painter Barend Cornelis Koekkoek. Following his teacher's example, Klombeek devoted his painting to the representation of forest land and landscapes, capturing the changing seasons on canvas. Participation in the salons of Berlin and Brussels, as well as the publication of engravings after his paintings (primarily landscapes), increased Klombeek's visibility and made him a respected and wealthy artist. Provenance: Riceville, TN collection. CONDITION: Very good condition with minor cracquelure and surface grime. Minor scattered losses to frame, small break/losses to upper left corner.
