Giovanni Boni Oil On Canvas 19th Century

Siege Scene

Oil on canvas. Outside the fortifications of a city, a commander, surrounded by his soldiers, is about to light the fuse of the cannon. The army defends the citadel outside the walls and the soldiers scan the horizon looking downwards: this leads us to place the scene on the fortifications of a city, in particular those of Genoa, that rise on the mountains behind it and from which the Genoese defended the city from attacks from the sea; the Genoa setting is also supported by the banner that flies over the walls, the Saint George Cross (red cross on a white background), flag of the Republic of Genoa. The shape of the armor, weapons and clothing would refer to the siege of Genoa in 1522. It is therefore the nineteenth-century representation of a historical episode, which is then part of that pictorial production widespread in Italy in the nineteenth century, inspired by the new historical novel popular in literature. On the back of the frame there is the name G. Boni, together with a number that refers to participation in an official exhibition. Giovanni Boni was a pupil of the Brera Academy, in particular a follower of Giuseppe Sogni, an artist who was among the first to favour historical painting in its innovative romantic declinations. Not much is known about Boni, neither from a biographical point of view nor from his production. Of his certain attribution we know only the Nude of Man (painted Academy) with which he won the first prize for the Scuola del Nudo in Brera in 1852. The piece expresses the figures and the pathos of the scene with expressive efficiency; the characters in the foreground are very well characterized in their poses, expressions, in the details of the clothes and weapons, while the other figures fade into the background, suggesting the presence of a large army. The painting, still on the first canvas, shows small widespread losses of colour. It is presented in a frame in style.

Landscape 1927

Oil on canvas. Signed and dated lower left. On the back there is a cartouche with the address of the artist's studio and the title of the work; there is also a pencil-made note from the owner (a painter too) "Gift of the author, 19-03-1930". Noel Quintavalle (known under the pseudonym Noelqui), a native of Ferrara but raised and artistically trained in Milan, was a multifaceted artist. Graduated in architecture, he was self-taught in the arts, but after the great war in which he actively participated, he quickly distinguished himself and exhibited in various national and international exhibitions; in the meantime he also carried out literary activities by publishing various volumes (satire, fairy tales, short stories, memories of the war) and also experimented with sculpture and xylography. His pictorial production, which began as a pointillist, was then influenced by the synthesis of modern painting. The subjects most dear to him were the portrait (with a preference for particular female figures, such as dancers) and the landscape. The landscape presented here - a hilly glimpse, with a wide view that opens from the path under the leafy tree - belongs to the period of Noelqui still close to Divisionism, in which he used a technique with small, almost point-like brushstrokes, giving a greater brightness and surrounding each element or figure with a magical aura. The work is presented in a contemporary frame.

Beach work scene

Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. The imposing scene describes the undertaking of hauling a boat ashore with a horse-drawn trailer: the six mighty beasts are the protagonists, located in pairs on different floors, while some fishermen arrange the tow ropes; sea, sky and beach are placed on three parallel lines, which also fade chromatically into each other; perpendicular to these lines, the flagpole of the boat, which creates the union between the three elements. Edgar Pierre Jozef Farasyn (his name also appears as "Edgard Farasyn" and "Edgard Farasijn".) Belgian artist trained in Antwerp where he then worked, he was a painter, watercolorist, engraver, graphic designer. I He initially painted scenes for children, but from 1885 he switched to painting in the open air, painting many city scenes and in the old fish market of Antwerp, but also many rural landscapes and views of the villages. Attracted by the sea, he stayed there regularly, creating many realistic scenes from the life of fishermen and their families. His early works were characterized by a realistic style, with rather gray and gloomy colors, and with a rigorous atmosphere. Later he moved on to a brighter use of color and a subtle representation of light. Due to its large size (unusual for the artist), the work presented here suggests a work for an important client. It is presented in a rich golden frame from the early 1900s.

Landscape with Figures Oil on Canvas Italy 18th Century

Oil on canvas. A seduction scene is described on a country path: a standing young woman shows her body to the man sitting to rest with her partner; while he looks away, his wife looks sorrowfully at the young harlot, holding her partner by the hand. Other travelers appear on the path. Perhaps of allegorical significance, the painting underlines the contrast between the freshness, brightness and ardor of the young female body, whose beauty is flaunted, and the ill-defined, bundled, almost hidden shape of the two elderly bodies. On the back of the painting there is a hypothesis of attribution to Giuseppe Gambarini (1680-1725) in pencil. Despite the dubious attribution, the painting is well done in the pictorial quality and in the rendering of the subject. Restored and relined, it is presented in a re-adapted antique frame.

Noel Quintavalle (known under the pseudonym Noelqui), a native of Ferrara but raised and artistically trained in Milan, was a multifaceted artist. Graduated in architecture, he was self-taught in the arts, but after the great war in which he actively participated, he quickly distinguished himself and exhibited in numerous national and international exhibitions; in the meantime he also carried out literary activities by publishing various volumes (satire, fairy tales, short memories of the war) and also experimented with sculpture and xylography.

The subjects most dear to him were the portrait (with a preference for particular female figures, such as dancers) and the landscape. His production of floral subjects dates back to the 1940s, linked to the period in which he recovered the need for interiority, approaching the aesthetic concepts of the art of the "twentieth century". The work is presented in a contemporary frame.

Church Interior by Vittore Zanetti Zilla Oil on Canvas Italy '800.

Church interior

Oil painting on canvas. Signed on the back. Born into a wealthy Venetian family, Vittore Zanetti Zilla began to paint as a self-taught, drawing inspiration from Giacomo Favretto, a family friend, before moving on to the Venetian Academy of Fine Arts under the guidance of Guglielmo Ciardi. In fact, on his model, he passes from genre scenes of his first period to landscape painting. Beginning to travel, initially in Italy, he comes very close to the Neapolitan school; from 1898 he began his long journeys abroad, which brought him closer to the most widespread European landscape instances, leading him to adopt a very modern pictorial language. He sets up his first personal exhibitions especially in the German and Austrian area, where he is successful; the foreign contamination also occurs in the choice of the pictorial technique, moving from watercolor to oil painting and finally to tempera, which will characterize him later. With the First World War Zanetti Zilla returned to Italy, first to Florence and then to Milan, but getting very close to the genre of the Venetian landscape and finally becoming passionate about still life. With the transition to the use of tempera, Zanetti Zilla refines that technique that will become his distinctive feature: through large and fat brushstrokes, he creates works that are intensely vivid in color and veiled with a porcelain sheen obtained thanks to the final oil varnish. The work presented proposes the interior of a church with figures in prayer. The pictorial technique already expresses that contamination from Northern European painting, placing it already in the period of the late 19th-early 20th century. The painting is presented in a gilded frame from the early 1900s.

Relined, the painting has some paint losses that need restoration. It is in an adapted frame, from the late '800 - early '900.

Carlo Jacono Oil on Canvas Italy XX Century

Male face

Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. The Milanese artist Carlo Jacono was an illustrator and painter: his unmistakable style, the mastery in the execution, the prolificacy and artistic ability in over 50 years of career, the knowing how to lend himself to different genres and the great success at readers and publishers made him one of the masters of Italian illustration and one of the most appreciated and well-known names on the national and international illustration scene. He was also known as the "Man of the circle", a pseudonym due to the layout of many of his covers in pink, police, science fiction, Italian, English, Swedish, Norwegian, American (we recall, among many, the covers of the series "Il giallo Mondadori "), or more simply with the surname only, Jacono, with which he signed himself. Starting from 1970 Jacono also embarked on a career as a painter, exhibiting in personal exhibitions both in Italy and abroad, preferring a figurative vein with a romantic connotation that finds its masterpiece in the series of "The warriors". They said of this production: "they are apparitions of warriors of other times, which the imagination comes to realize even in the minute features of the face, and to imagine in the most reckless actions". Probably the painting presented here is also part of this series: it is the face of a Nordic warrior, as can be deduced from the fur headdress that frames the proud and concentrated face in which the cold blue eyes stand out, and from the burnished metal collar engraved with signs graphics that refer to the Nordic runes; half-length, the shoulder straps of the armor can be seen. The painting is presented in a frame.

Oil on canvas. Signed and dated lower right. Genre scene set in a museum environment, where a young painter is trying her hand at reproducing a work, under the stern gaze of a friar. It is the work of Giulio Sommati di Mombello, a Turin artist from a noble family, who was artistically trained at the Albertina Academy in Turin, the city where he lived and worked, while exhibiting in all Italian cities. He painted genre scenes, portraits, urban views (particularly his markets in Turin), landscapes, and from the first decade of the 1900s, also numerous marinas, following his discovery and falling in love with the Ligurian Riviera. He had among his admirers the King (from whom he obtained the appointment as Knight of the Kingdom) Queen Margherita, Elisabetta di Sassonia Duchess of Genoa, the Promoter of Turin, Princes, municipal and national art galleries and art lovers scattered in many regions of 'Italy.

Female Figure Inside A Room Oil On Canvas Italy 9th Century

Oil on canvas. Signed "Morbelli" at the bottom right. The scene shows a poor interior: standing turned three-quarters, a woman, framed in the dark compartment of the door behind her, approaches a small table on which there are three different flasks; light enters through a window that can be glimpsed on the left side, under which is a wood box. The interplay of the lines of the furniture and the rooms in the room, which converge from the two sides and from above towards the central figure, standing there in the dark but well defined by the contours, not so much by lines as by the play of light and shadow, is peculiar. The painting, by a very good hand, recalls the pictorial work of Angelo Morbelli (1853-1919), one of the great artists of Divisionism, who devoted himself to the representation of figures and scenes of a peasant and popular matrix, in the wake of verist literature. The work presented here is in excellent hand, but in our opinion it cannot be attributed to Angelo Morbelli, but rather to an anonymous Lombard author inspired by him, and we believe that the conformity to Morbelli's style and subjects probably led to his signature being added, to recall the authorship of at least his inspiration. The painting comes in a revival frame.
