Jan Tengnagel (1584-1635)

A Dutch master,  he was a highly reputed figure on the Amsterdam art scene  in his time.  A sojourn to Rome in 1608 is documented.  During his last decade - he was wealthy, - most of his time was dedicated to the Guild.  Characteristic aspects of his style are the richly folded draperies, the expressive poses and gestures of the figures, the dense type of foliage, the particular kind of clouds, the saturated execution altogether.  The patriarchal figure of the turbaned protagonist recurs in several of his works.

On the base of a handful of signed and dated works, Tengnagel’s oeuvre comprises now some two dozen paintings, several formerly misattributed to Lastman.  They suggest an evolution from Elsheimer (whom he may have met when in Rome) and Lastman to a distinctly personal style with explicit figure scenes in tight landscapes.  He also received commissions of some group portraits.  Close stylistic links with the production of the brothers Jan and Jacob Pynas brothers are underscored by Tengnagel’s marriage with their sister.
