( But I'll want to get Hogfeldt's reproductions now too - I liked them both, equally))))

Happy New Year to everyone!!!!

Rijksmuseum
A nude, winged, old man is crouching beside a group of peculiar objects: scales, a mirror framed by a snake and some withered cabbage leafs. He has just uncovered them and is holding the cloth that had concealed them in his hand. This is Old Father Time, painted in 1810 by the Utrecht artist P.C. Wonder. This large painting has a striking composition: Time fills the whole surface area of the painting. Careful attention has been paid to the anatomy of the man's body. The painter probably worked from a nude life model. Wonder has depicted the man's skin, the feathers on the wings - which he may have copied from a swan - and the wilting cabbage leafs with great accuracy.

Hmmm... If it's Rijksmeseum, the names I can think of right away are Rembrandt and Vermeer. The painting looks awfully familiar, but can't remember off top of my mind..

That's really weird... Lol.
I could not find the painter with such name,(P.C. Wonder) although all of them ( Dutch painters) seems to be here - the whole list
http://www.artholland.ru/

yet I'm pretty sure I saw this painting before.
Weird, really)))

I hear you, I hear you (although I should have been more attentive the first time around,) however the second painting looks unfamiliar to me, and I still can't find any mentioning of this particular painter on Russian sites ( although all others seems to be there,) which is very puzzling to me..

Default Dutch painter P.C. Wonder

Here's the history I found by typing in search box :
Dutch painter P.C. Wonder

Pieter Christoffel Wonder Biography
(b Utrecht, 10 Jan 1780; d Amsterdam, 12 July 1852). Dutch painter, active in England. He was largely self-taught, although between 1802 and 1804 he attended classes at the academy in Düsseldorf. In 1807 he established the Kunstliefde (Love of Art) Society in Utrecht together with other artists including Jan Kobell II. During this period he painted Time (1810; Amsterdam, Rijksmus.), a symbolical representation of a naked and winged old man in a strongly Neo-classical style. Wonder also painted interior scenes in imitation of the Dutch 17th-century masters.
