This is #pauluspotter’s “De jonge stier” from 1647. It can now be seen in the #mauritshuis in The Hague. He painted it when he was just 22. Potter was famous for making #paintings of animals, depicted in landscapes that usually articulated low vantage points. You always feel like you’re quietly crawling up to Potter’s animals, hidden from them so as not to scare them off, when looking at one of his paintings. Animal paintings, and particularly those of #cows and #bulls, were incredibly popular in the #netherlands in the 1640’s and 1650’s. All the stars of the #goldenage of painting in #holland executed images of animals, but Potter was particularly famed for his huge contribution to this very niche genre. I guess having a big painted bull in your home said several things about you. Bulls are virile; they fuck a lot; they’re the biggest beasts on the farm; they’re muscular; they supply food and protection for a family. You don’t fuck about with a bull. Which bloke doesn’t want to be associated with all that horny signification of masculinity and prosperity? It bellows ‘I’m rich and I have massive balls’. Yay. This #painting of a young bull, accompanied by a cow, farm hand, some sheep and a goat, is one of Potter’s most celebrated works and one of his largest. The bull is almost life-size (the painting is 133 inches wide). Its monumentality, coupled with Potter’s extraordinary #realism, meant that in the 18th and 19th centuries only #rembrandt’s “The Night Watch” was regarded more highly. #napoleon, no less, loved it so much he took it out of the Prince William V Collection and hung it in the #louvre for 20 years. It was returned as part of a treaty settlement between the French and the Dutch in 1815. This painting was used by #marktansey in his work “The Innocent Eye Test” (1981, New York, The Met, 👈 swipe): a wry take on the dynamics of #looking and then extrapolating #meaning (the age-old concern of the #critic) and the constant antagonism between #artifice and #reality (the age-old concern of the #artist). Poor PP died of TB aged just 28; that’s what happens when you hang out on the #farm with cows too much. He was baptised on this day in 1625. #art

I hear the political correct idiots already calling " burn his paintings " because he dared to paint a #metoo about 400 years ago #pauluspotter #metoo #politics #politicalcorrectness #idiots #sjw #painting #art #crazy #painting #madness #classic

Tssss... #grabthembythe🐱 bestond al in de #goudeneeuw ! De waardin geeft deze zeventiende-eeuwse Donald Trump een draai om de oren. Detail uit een schilderij van Paulus Potter, vanaf 11 november te zien op de #tentoonstelling #humorindegoudeneeuw in het #franshalsmuseum te #haarlem #vernissage #openingday #humor #pauluspotter #donaldtrump

Koeien zo uit een schilderij van #PaulusPotter. Het zijn witrikken (met een witte streep op de rug dus), waarvan er in Nederland nog maar 4.000 zijn omdat fokken met dit ras - of kleurstelling - eind negentiende eeuw werd verboden. Met dank aan de boer die een uitlegbordje bij de wei zette langs het #Marskramerpad #Gelderland #witrik #walk1000miles #dutchcows

Mark Tansey, The Innocent Eye Test, 1981
In this wry painting, a cow stands in front of Paulus Potter’s The Young Bull, 1647, now at the Mauritshuis, The Hague, while the human experts wonder if the cow can distinguish artifice from reality. Will she bellow a greeting, or admire Monet’s Grainstack (Snow Effect), 1891, on the wall to the right?#marktansey #innocenteye #test#cow#art#museum #collection #exhibition #claudemonet #grainstack #youngbull #pauluspotter #painting #artwork #masterpiece #experiment#style#instaart #

Ik schreef een brief aan de premier. Benieuwd wat de stier van Paulus Potter met de @minister_president te maken heeft. Lees het op BusyBeezzz, link in bio.
