The Fountains by Hubert Robert Glass framed print 2019 apprasial: $280 H: 22" x 20" The Fountains Date: 1787/88 ABOUT THIS ARTWORK The painting of Classical ruins had reached the zenith of its popularity when Hubert Robert, the leading French practitioner of this specialty. The Fountains exploits Robert’s typical vocabulary of fictive niches, arches, coffered vaults, colonnades, majestic stairwells, and Roman statuary to create a fantasy of expansive space. The painting is inhabited by tiny figures in the foreground; these serve only to set the scale and animate the scene, for the ruins themselves are the true subject of the picture. In his use of ruins, Robert embodied the notion of the relationship of mankind and the built environment to nature that was expressed by the French philosopher and encyclopedist Denis Diderot: “Everything vanishes, everything dies, only time endures.” Check out my other ads!
