Cornelius Norbertus Gijsbrechts (Flemish, Active 1657 - 1675)

Trompe l'oeil med trompet, himmelglobus og Frederik III's proklamation, 1670, Olie på lærred

Under sit fireårige ophold i København skabte Gijsbrechts en ekstraordinær række malerier, som skulle overbevise betragteren om, at det sete var rigtige tredimensionale objekter og ikke et fladt maleri. Genren kaldes trompe l’oeil (øjenbedrag) og er typisk for barokkens forkærlighed for vittig illusionisme og metaforisk allegorisering. Genren var også populær i resten af Europa, hvor konger og prinser benyttede sådanne maleriers fantasifulde bedrag som underholdning for diplomater og fremtrædende gæster.


Trompe l'Oeil with Trumpet, Celestial Globe and Proclamation by Frederik III, 1670 / Oil on canvas

During his four-year sojourn in Copenhagen Gijsbrechts created an extraordinary series of paintings that aimed to convince spectators that they were facing real, three-dimensional objects rather than flat paintings. The genre is called trompe l'oeil (deception of the eye) and is typical of the Baroque style with its predilection for witty illusionism, metaphor, and allegory. The genre was also popular in the rest of Europe where princes and monarchs used such paintings to amuse diplomats and distinguished guests with their clever deceptions.
