A propos de cet article

(titlepage, portrait, dedication with 2 portraits) 188 folia. Contemporary half Leather with 7 raised bands, large Folio H. 49,5 L. 31 x W. 5 cm. (Near the edges slightly grazed, especially at the top of the spine. Exceptionally beautiful manuscript with 188 large figures of men and women in sixteenth century costumes from around the world, drawn with ink and watercolour. The work is made by Pierre Charles de Loose 1760-1841, he was one of the directors of the Académie Royale de Dessin (Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten) at Ghent. He made this work after the costume book by Jean Jacques Boissard, which was published in 1581. De Loose enlarged the figures from this costume book and displayed them on seperate leaves. The work contains a titlepage, framed with an allegorical scene with 4 females representing Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas, after the titlepage follows a portrait of Jean Jacques Boissard and a dedication to Claude Antoine de Vienne with 2 portraits of his daughters, Nicole and Louise. The preliminary pages are followed by 188 watercolour drawings with captions in Latin, French and German, written with ink. The watercolour drawings portray persons with a high social status, such as noblemen and women and religious patriarchs, but also persons with a lower social status, such as servants and performers. The prints are arranged in a geographical order and contain images of figures from around the world. The work is drawn on royal, untrimmed paper which is still fresh and bright, therefore the images look beautiful and sharp.) (titelpagina, portret, opdracht met 2 portretten) 188 folia. Origineel half Leer met ribben, groot Folio H. 49,5 L. 31 x D. 5 cm. (Langs de randen wat geschaafd, voornamelijk aan de bovenkant van de rug. Uitzonderlijk fraai handschrift met 188 grote afbeeldingen van mannen en vrouwen in zestiende eeuwse kledij van over de hele wereld, getekend met inkt en waterverf. Het werk is vervaardigd door Pierre Charles de Loose 1760-1841, deze was een van de bestuurders van de Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Ghent. Hij maakte dit werk in navolging op het kostuumboek van Jean Jacques Boissard, dat in 1581 gepubliceerd werd. De Loose heeft de prenten uit dit kostuumboek vergroot en deze elk op een apart blad afgebeeld. Het geheel bestaat uit een titelpagina, omlijst met een allegorische voorstelling met 4 vrouwen welke, Europa, Afrika, Azië en Amerika afbeelden, na de titelpagina volgt een portret van Jean Jacques Boissard en een opdracht/dedicatie gericht aan Claude Antoine de Vienne met 2 portretten van diens dochters, Nicole en Louise. Het voorwerk wordt gevolgd door 188 aquarellen met een onderschrift in het Latijn, Frans en Duits, geschreven met inkt. De aquarellen verbeelden personen met een hoge sociale status, zoals edelmannen en vrouwen en religieuze patriarchen, maar ook personen met een lage sociale status, zoals bedienden en artiesten. De prenten zijn gerangschikt op geografische volgorde en bevatten afbeeldingen van personen uit alle delen van de wereld. Het geheel is getekend op royaal, onafgesneden papier wat nog zeer fris en helder is, dit laat de prenten fraai en scherp uitkomen.) Wauters, P.E. (1841). Notice Biographique.
