Emile Pierre Joseph Cauwer ( Gante 1828- Berlin 1873 ) :
Painter born in Belgium, learning took him out with his father Joseph of Cauwer, and majored in painting architectures, especially for churches, both interiors and exteriors. It was a great continuation of the tradition of painting architectures Dutch Golden Age, with large Emmanuel de Witt, Pieter Saenredam or Gerrit Berckheide.-
De Cauwer painting was highly appreciated in his time, and was characterized mainly by a previous study of the issues with surveying scale that served him so that his painting was very rich in detail, yet very careful with all architectural elements correspond to reality. Will I call “real painting” in relation to buildings pintaba.-
Working in several countries, mainly in his native Belgium, Holland and Germany, where his painting was highly valued, and where he died. For the chronology of his time, his painting has both neoclassical influence, in its final part, as full romance
The table :
It shows a beautiful interior view of the Basilica of Saint Denis Cathedral, near Paris, built in the middle of the twelfth century, by Abbot Suger, and it was the first church to be raised entirely in the Gothic style, thus serving model for all buildings that followed in that style throughout Europe, although its logical temporal evolution and characteristics nacionales.-
The view shown is of enormous topographical precision and technique of the painter is evident from the representation of architectural elements stone and white marble mausoleum of King Louis XII and his wife Anne of Brittany. The scene is bathed in golden light from the sun that enters from the right, and highlighting the gothic tracery, arches and stained glass.
The picture is an amazing detail, the statues surrounding the mausoleum, the confessional wooden carved gothic full details and stained glass, to give some examples. The touches of red in the flag and coat prelate encouraged the set and put the note of warmth. The perspective taken in this ship Cathedral seems to be a little forced, perhaps to accentuate the view and take the viewer into this view, which is a bit oblicua.-
