Life of TOBIAS STRANOVER


 Advertisements

 
  Tobias Stranover (Stranovius), one of the leading decorative painters working in England in the early part of the 18th-century, was born in Nagyszeben, Hungary (now Sibiu, Romania). He was the son of the local painter Jeremias Stranover (?-1702). His elder brother, Jeremias Stranover was also a painter in Nagyszeben, just like his father-in-law, Jacob Bogdani (Jakab Bogdny). Stranover travelled to Germany and England and settled in London where he married Elizabeth Bogdani, daughter of Jacob Bogdani. It is thought that the two artists collaborated together, painting exotic birds and wild life. Together with Bogdani, Stranover was one of the foremost decorative painters working in England in the early part of the 18th century. They specialized in the painting of exotic birds and wildlife, their work brought a lightness and exoticism to English still-life and animal paintings which were missing in the early English works of Marmaduke Craddock and Francis Barlow.
  Although examples of Stranover s work can be found in the museums of Hamburg, Dresden and Budapest, his work is most commonly found in old English collections. His extensive knowledge of the different fruits and birds of the world can be seen in his paintings and his later works become more detailed and much fuller.
