Description: MARY DE MEDICIS was received at Marseilles, on the third of November, in the year 1600, by the principal nobles of the kingdom, whom Henry IV. had sent to receive her. Rubens has given a poetical turn to this historical event. The queen, attired in a robe of white satin, embroidered with gold and diamonds, descends from the yacht, and advances to a bridge of boats, which is covered with a purple carpet. Beside her are the ladies of the court. The female on the left is dressed in black. This colour was chosen by Rubens, to throw forward the principal figure. France, characterized by her sceptre, her glittering helmet, and her blue mantle adorned with fleur-de-lys, inclines with affection towards the queen. Beside her is the city of Marseilles, crowned with towers. As the clergy of the city went before Mary de Medicis, Rubens has introduced in his picture two ecclesiastics, who support a canopy of white satin. On board the vessel is a Knight of Malta, invested with the insignia of the order ; and near him are several slaves and musicians. The galley is magnificently ornamented, and the figures most richly gilt. The arms of the Medici, surmounted by a white ensign, decorate the poop. The fore ground of the picture, presents the divinities of the ocean, who favour the arrival of the queen. Neptune, armed with his trident, impels the galley ; a Triton, and two Nereides, assist him, with their efforts while another Triton, in a transport of joy, sounds his shell. The figures of the Syrens are somewhat heavy. In other respects this composition is admirably executed. The colouring, as in most of the pictures of this celebrated collection, is uncommonly fine. Nothing can be more soft and harmonious than the carnations of the queen and the ladies of her suite ; nothing more rich than the tints of the galley and its accessaries. The flesh of the syrens has a freshness, that enlivens the green tints of the waves, and forms a judicious contrast to the animated colouring of the Tritons. This picture exhibits a prodigious variety of shades, from the most luminous to the most sombre, which so unite and set off each other, as to produce the most enchanting effect. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
