OVERDOOR (dessus-de-porte): sleeping putti / bacchants

overdoor sleeping putti

Painting and decoration come together in this charming brunaille of two putti, surrounded by bunches of grapes. Originally, this painting was placed above a fireplace (a so called dessus-de-cheminée) or incorporated in a nineteenth-century paneling. But it also comes into its own as a separate element in a modern interior.

Copy of PETER PAUL RUBENS en FRANS SNYDERS: Christ and John the Baptist as children with two angels

Rubens and Snyders - copy

If only for its huge size, this cheerful and colorful overdoor is a great eyecatcher in a modern interior. More copies of this painting are known, but this copyist was a master in his skill. This piece proves how a good copy of an ancient painting can get a whole new significance as an autonomous artwork in the present day.

Pierre Jean van der Ouderaa

Anyone who has visited Venice or knows it well will be drawn towards this atmospheric canvas of the northern portal of the Basilica of St. Mark. The eye is drawn into the portal by the powerful perspective created by the richly decorated arches and the different groups of people.

FRIEDRICH (FRITZ) MARTIN (1859-1932): Faust meets Gretchen in front of the church

Friedrich Martin

With this beautiful classic canvas by the German painter Friedrich (Fritz) Martin, Ars Decora offers a fascinating narrative work with great decorative power. The confrontation of figures in a historical setting and the powerful use of color by Martin create an atmosphere of great drama and yes, that’s what it is: an episode from Goethe’s Faust play.

G.T. AMBROSIO: copies of Pompeian frescoes, around 1900

G.T. Ambrosio

These eight very fine Pompeian paintings would be a great embellishment to a long corridor, or a classic library. Being copies of frescoes of the famous House of the Vettii, exhumed firstly in 1896, they were probably created around 1900 as a fancy souvenir of Pompeii.

Series of eight separate pieces, oil on paper, dimensions 37 x 25 cm. P.o.d. Click for more pictures and information.

JOSEPH MIDDELEER (1865-1934): Beguinage (Bruges)

Joseph Middeleer: Beguinage

Pay attention to the dimensions of this impressive painting by Joseph Middeleer. If you can provide in the space on the wall this painting requires, you are able to create a convincing resting point in your interior. The daring bright greens in the grass, the blue glow on the roof tiles and the violet colored clouds, draw you into the painting like in a dream. The key of the master in the pasty paint is literally tangible.

CLARA BUINING - BRUINS (1859-1922): The reading girl


"The reading girl" illustrates Ars Decora's philosophy of bringing forgotten paintings with a decorative dimension to the attention of an art-loving audience. In this canvas, Clara Bruins manages to evoke the atmosphere of a late nineteenth-century interior, with opulent draperies, portraits on display and a fashionable palm, and thus ranks alongside contemporary Hague School artists like Breitner. A canvas that provides peace of mind.

Signed below right, oil on canvas, dimensions 58 x 46 cm (canvas), 73 x 62 cm (frame). Price € 950. Click for more photos and information.
