P. Ottino Religious Subject Mixed Technique on Paper XVI Century

The meeting of the Centurion Cornelius with the Apostle Peter

Mixed technique on paper (charcoal, pen, brown ink, watercolor and white lead). Signed Pasqual Otin lower left; coming from a private collection, there are the brands of two previous collections, Dalla Bella and Frigerio. The work is also accompanied by a critical study by dr. Francesco Vincenti and a certificate of authenticity from the Orler Collection. It is a fascinating drawing by Pasquale Ottino known as Pasqualotto, a Veronese painter (the surname Otin corresponds to the Venetian wording) who, after a period of training in Rome, embarked on a painting career in Verona marked "by the Caravaggesque luminism declined in the Venetian style with the use of robust colourism ". Also in this drawing the Counter-Reformation tendency is already perceived, for the meaning of immediate teaching, linked to the dramatic expressiveness of the characters. The episode recounted, drawn from the Acts of the Apostles, sees a Roman centurion who begs for blessing from Peter, inside a room that draws light from the window and is filled with other characters from the newspaper, the attendant on the right and the servant who brings bread and wine to the tray on the left. Central is the intense gaze between the two protagonists, accompanied by the hint of a smile on their lips, to express the joy of the encounter of Salvation. Framed.

Rest on the Flight into Egypt Oil on Canvas XVIII-XIX Century

Oil painting on canvas. XVIII -XIX century. The sacred theme in this scene takes on a familiar connotation, full of very earthly tenderness and intimacy: in an almost exotic context, which evokes an oasis in the desert for palm trees and a spring of water in a barren and hilly landscape. bare, Joseph and Mary sit to rest during their flight to Egypt, to escape the persecution of Herod; the mother tenderly holds baby Jesus on her knees, looks at him tenderly and swaddles him, while Joseph observes them pleased and relaxed. The whole scene is characterized by the dominance of brown-ocher colors, from which only Maria's dress differs, in her traditional blue and red colors; in the background, a clear sky in the colors of a dawn that has just dawned, with shades of pink. The canvas was applied on a new frame from the mid-1900s and placed in a frame from the same period, which has some shortcomings.

Portrait of a Nobleman Oil on Canvas Italy XVII Century

Oil painting on canvas. Lombard school of the seventeenth century. The gentleman is portrayed standing, life-size, inside the house; he rests his right hand on a small table covered with red velvet, under a window that opens onto a large river landscape. Near his feet, on the left, the faithful dog, also in a dignified and composed pose; the rich golden and worked metal collar stands out at its neck, embellished with a pendant with a hard stone. The black suit in which the man is dressed almost completely merges with the dark and dark background of the room, if not for the reflections on the sleeves of the light that enters through the window and for the delicate white lace of the ruff and cuffs that frame the rosy complexion of the face and hands. The qualitative rendering of the work is remarkable, in particular in the face, well defined in its features and expressive, as well as in the anatomical features of the animal, whose gaze is as intense and penetrating as that of the owner. The portrait is part of that extensive portrait production that from the end of the sixteenth century becomes, in Lombardy in particular with Moroni, no longer just an official and elite presentation of important characters, but a representation of people in their naturalness, in their true essence, portrayed in less static poses and in less official environments. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a beautiful carved and gilded wooden frame from the early 1900s.

Oil painting on canvas. Neapolitan school of the mid-18th century.

Iphigenia courageously accepted the sacrifice and spontaneously ascended the altar, but at the last moment Artemis, pitying, exchanged her for a fawn and took the girl alive in Tauris, where she became a priestess of the goddess who had saved her.

Erminia among the Shepherds

Oil on canvas. The large canvas recounts an episode taken from the Gerusalemme Liberata by Torquato Tasso, in which the young Erminia, princess of Antioch secretly in love with Tancredi, witnesses the wounding of her beloved in a duel. Driven by love, she therefore wears the weapons of the warrior Clorinda, her close friend, and at night she goes out to reach her beloved Tancredi and heal him. But in the Christian camp a ray of moonlight illuminates her and, mistaken for Clorinda by the sentries, she is forced to make a hasty flight: this is how it happens in a village inhabited by shepherds who live far from the war in an idyllic space, where she asks and obtains to be hosted for some time in the (vain) hope of forgetting her unhappy love. The work, already attributed to Carlo Loth, is rather referable to the production of Louis Dorigny, the Parisian painter who lived for a long time in Italy, in Rome, in Venice and finally definitively in Verona, where he obtained numerous orders from Veronese but also from clients. Venetians and Lombards, extending his activity as a fresco painter from Bergamo to Udine. In Verona since the beginning of the century, the preferences in the field of painting went towards a complex classicistic language in the composition, but calm and elegant, even in the great decorative works. Dorigny conforms to this painting, who in this canvas combines the balanced classicism of Simon Vouet (of whom he was grandson) with the chiaroscuro he learned in Rome and the calm Venetian elegance. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in an early 20th century frame.

Oil painting on canvas. Neapolitan school of the eighteenth century. Of great impact and of good executive quality, the work refers in the ways to the works of Leonardo Coccorante (1680-1750), a Neapolitan artist known for his highly detailed large-scale landscapes characterized by classical architectural ruins, thus confirming the hypothesis of work in the Neapolitan area. The whole scene is occupied by imposing architectural structures, in Baroque style, among which various figures move. In particular, in the center in the foreground, some soldiers on horseback, in ancient Roman armor, lead a squad of infantry armed with spears and preceded by trumpeters; all are intent on admiring the city they are entering, while around them, citizens intent on their activities observe them. Restored and relined, the painting still has some color losses. It is presented in a stylish frame.

Immaculate Conception Oil on Canvas Italy 17th Century

Oil on canvas. The Immaculate Conception is a Catholic dogma, proclaimed by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, which states that the Virgin Mary was preserved immune from original sin from the first moment of her conception. The historical path that led to its definition lasted for at least four centuries, during which furious theological disputes were intertwined, especially between Franciscans and Dominicans. The theme of the Immaculate Conception began to appear in art since the debate was heated, Initially the theme was approached by Gothic artists in a cryptic way, referring to the viewer the conclusion, perhaps putting a series of symbols and metaphors easily decodable. In the fifteenth century the works of art became more evident, but it is from the seventeenth century, with the Counter-Reformation, that the most famous iconographic image of this dogma was established. The essential characters are those of the woman of the Apocalypse: an ever-young woman - because she was chosen and conceived before all humanity - clothed in the sun (the light that radiates from behind), crowned by twelve stars surmounted by an apotheosis of cherubim, Who rests her feet on a crescent moon and often, as in this depiction, crushing the head of the defeated apocalyptic dragon; She has her eyes turned to heaven, in a contemplative attitude, her hands often joined in prayer, other times wide open and stretches upwards in a gesture of momentum. The pictorial production of this subject became very wide and extremely varied, in the wake of the disputes that concerned it. Similar productions to the one proposed here are found, at the end of the '500, above all between Lombardy and Genoa. As an example from Lombardy can be cited Stefano Maria Legnani, called the Legnanino (1660-1715). In the Ligurian context, in particular in Genoa, where the image of the Immaculate Conception had an extraordinary diffusion from the end of the sixteenth century to the whole Baroque age, becoming the central theme through paintings and sculptures in the decorative programs of the city buildings, this subject is very close to the one proposed, in the production of Paolo Gerolamo Piola (1666-1724). The painting in question had been restored and displayed in a revival frame.

Oil on Canvas Religious Subject Italy XVIII Century

Oil on canvas. Venetian school of the seventeenth-eighteenth century. On the back there is a label from the Di Rosa Art Gallery, which attributes the work to the "Venetian School of 1600". The great scene, rich in figures and very animated in the intertwining and superimposition of the bodies, tells the episode of the Gospel of John in which a woman caught in adultery is brought before Jesus by scribes and Pharisees to find out his opinion about the his sentence to be stoned. Jesus, while writing on the ground with his finger, urges his interlocutors to be merciful with the phrase "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone", thus saving the woman from the death sentence and leaving her free to go, with the exhortation not to sin anymore. The subject has been extensively re-proposed in art, with different views on the characters. In this painting, the woman is in a central position, but all the other characters around her make the gaze converge downwards, towards the hand with which Jesus, crouched, is writing on the ground; both the face and the right arm of the woman are practically parallel to those of Christ, as if they followed and conformed to the direction that Jesus indicates to her. In the other numerous figures curiosity dominates, the intent to understand, the question that Jesus raises with his question, represented in multiple expressive variants of both faces and bodies; curious is the detail of the lenses - the glasses of the priest whose head comes out behind the woman and the magnifying glass of the crouched figure on the left in the background - which two figures use to "see better" what is happening. The pictorial and interpretative modalities of the painting recall the Venetian production close to Girolamo Brusaferro (1677 - 1745), the Venetian artist whose painting represents the median way between the great tradition of late Baroque painting similar to Luca Giordano and the innovative coloristic sensitivity typical of eighteenth-century grace. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a coeval frame, in carved, stuccoed and lacquered wood.

The Gospel episode of the deposition of Christ from the Cross is depicted. The body of Jesus, which stands out white for the pallor of death but also as a symbol of his purity, stands out in the center among the other figures, the only one inert among the other characters. His arms still open while he is detached from the Cross, constitute a link between the two figures of Mary and John standing below him, and the sky. Around several figures that chorally create movement, intertwining, shapes and colors. The restored and relined work is presented in a coeval frame, in carved, stuccoed and lacquered wood.
