¤ Huile sur toile par JOSEPH VAN DEN KERKHOVE. Elève d'Erasme Quillyn le père, le peintre flamand Joseph van den Kerkhove choisit de partir voyager à l'étranger pour compléter sa formation et développer ses talents artistiques.
Il se rend à Paris mais ce séjour ne lui fera pas oublier la manière de son maître. Il se plait à peindre des compositions nobles et grandioses avec des couleurs chaudes. Ses tableaux présentent d'une part des sujets mythologiques et de l'autre des sujets bibliques, ces deux thèmes se retrouvent dans les grandes compositions qu'il a réalisées à Bruges.
Il a peint quinze tableaux sur la vie du Christ pour l'église des Jacobins, quatre autres sur les Œuvres de la miséricorde pour l'église collégiale de Saint-Sauveur, et une composition représentant le Conseil des Dieux sur le plafond de l'hôtel de ville d'Ostende. Passionné par son art, Joseph van den Kerkhove a crée une Académie de peinture à Bruges et en fut le premier directeur.

Provenance : Collection particulière, Belgique.

Oil on canvas, by JOSEPH VAN DEN KERKHOVE. Deux Putti étudient un globe terestre, l'un d'eux tient un compas. Les informations portées sur le globe sont imaginaires mais les deux cartouches et les bateaux sont typiques du 16e siècle. Van den Kerkhove s'est sans doute inspiré de ses concitoyens Gerard Mercator, Hondius et Blaeu.
Two putty studying a terrestrial globe, one of them holding a pair of dividers. The information on the globe is clearly imaginary but the two cartouches and ships are typically 16th century in appearance. Was van den Kerkhove perhaps inspired by his countrymen Gerard Mercator, Hondius and Blaeu.

Joseph Vanden Kerkhove was a Flemish historical painter who was born Bruges in 1669 and died in 1724 aged 55. He was a disciple of Erasmus Quellinus the elder in whose school he showed himself studious and diligent and his proficiency was proportionable to his work. When he began to practice his profession he went early to France where he found encouragement and in a few years returned to his own country with a good reception and always painting in the style of his master. His colours are warm and his design correct, his composition is generally in the "grand taste" and he rarely introduced anything but what seemed necessary to embellish his subject. He had thoroughly studied the principles of perspective and he was an expert in that branch of his art. The backgrounds of his pictures are usually enriched with classical architecture. On the ceiling of the town hall at Ostend he painted a very fine design representing "the Council of the Gods" in which there is an ingenious and learned disposition of the figures and it is altogether a masterly execution. - Biographical Dictionary of Painters, Sculptors, Engravers, Volume 1.

¤ With pasted label on each globe with the complete titles on each : MALBY'S Terrestrial Globe Compiled from the GLOBES of the SOCIETY FOR THE DIFF[?]. OF USEF[??] KNOWLEDGE Houghton St London March 1st 1844.
MALBY'S Celestial Globe Shewing the Principal STARS of each Constellation. HOUGHTON ST. LONDON March 1st 1844.
The Malby family of map and globe makers was started by Thomas Malby, Sr. about 1839 and continued producing globes until at least 1860. The firm operated as Malby & Son with Thomas Malby, Jr. and globes produced by the company generally were engraved by C. Malby -- presumably a family member -- and later continued by Thomas Malby III.
Malby produced a variety of table globes in many sizes as well as this interesting pocket globe. The depiction of the lines of magnetic variation on a globe was a Malby innovation. The Malby firm associated itself with the geographical publishing of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK).
The terrestrial globe has several areas off missing area, and paper label, who are carefully replaced with facsimile or redrawn in brown ink. Nevertheless a rare set of globes which make a great presentation.

Few repairs of some surface cracks, very well executed and hardly notable. The usual light scratches and abrasions.
