作品解説

 ルーベンスは17世紀フランドル美術を代表するだけでなく、バロック絵画を最もよく具現した大芸術家です。  あどけない寝顔を見せるこの子供たちは、画家の兄の子、クララ(右)とフィリップ(左)と考えられます。それぞれ1610年および11年に生まれた二人の年格好からすれば、本作は1612-13年頃の制作でしょう。これら二人の子供の顔はそれぞれ別々の大型油彩画にも用いられており、そのことからも本作は習作として描かれたと考えられます。しかし習作であるからこそ、画家の素早く即興的な筆の運びや、子供の頬に見られる豊かな肉付けなどが画面に鮮やかに残されています。透明色と不透明色との巧みな使い分け、明暗の色調や絵具の厚みの差などによって対象を見事に描出するルーベンスの生彩ある写実法が、よく発揮された作例です。(出典: 展示室作品解説パネル)

Two Sleeping Children

The great Peter Paul Rubens was the representative painter of seventeenth-century Flanders (present-day Belgium). The models for this work are thought to have been the children of the artist's elder brother. Presumably a study for a larger oil painting, it shows off the master's swift brushwork and vivid method of depiction, notably in the fleshy cheeks of the children. Ruben's realism is well demonstrated here: capturing his subject matter through skillful application of transparent and opaque colors and effective use of contrasting color tones and paint thicknesses.
