About

Late 19th Century Figurative Interior, Fine Parlor Scene A significant late 19th century Romantic figurative interior scene by Angelo Zoffoli (Italian, fl. 1860-1910). The group of realistically rendered figures is perfectly posed around a table with an opulent flower bouquet centerpiece. The noble ladies and gentlemen are dressed in exquisite 18th century garments and occupy a lavish Rococo room, which this skilled artist represents in extraordinary detail. Due to the age and fragile edges of the linen, the painting was laid down on Illustration hardboard for lasting stability. Some eralier paint losses repainted in areas on the edges. Some small bubbles in the linen center. Even though the edges had paint losses, they were repaint excellently many years ago. The repairs will last for many years. Signed "A. Zoffoli - Roma" lower right. Displayed in an ornate antique giltwood frame with velvet liner. Image size: 23"H x 18"H. Angelo Zoffoli was an Italian artist who flourished in Rome from the late 19th century to early 20th century. He is known for Rococo, Romantic, & Neo-Classical style figurative works, rich in realistic detail, which often depict scenes of nobles and clergy in lavish interiors and period dress. Zoffoli honed his skills as an engraver and painter at the art school of the Ospizio di San Michele (The Hospice of Saint Michael) in Rome, where he was documented as a young pupil in 1879. San Michele was built during the 17th and 18th centuries and served a number of purposes including an orphanage, a hospice for abandoned elderly, jails for minors and women, and also an art school providing trade for artists and artisans. In the 19th Century, the engraving school, under the guidance of Francesco Giangiacomo, Domenico Marchetti, and Vincenzo Camuccini, formed some of the following great engravers; Paolo Mercuri, Luigi Calamatta, Leucio Quirino Lelli, Alessandro Pigna, Angelo Zoffoli – who were “all fascinated by the Raphael-esque myth”. Other notable alumni of the Ospizio San Michele include the famous artists Alessandro Ceccarini, Luigi Amici, Fabio Altini, Michele Tripisciano, Leopoldo Ansiglioni, and Ercole Rosa. Early in his career as an artist, Angelo Zoffoli was heralded for his intaglio engravings, which were published and praised in Roma Anotolgia Illustrata (Rome Illustrated Anthology), an Artistic, Scientific, Literary and Industrial Chronicle, in 1879. The influence of old masters in Zoffoli’s artistic training is clear, as included in his published engravings were copies of works by Van Dyck and Le Brun. During this time, Zoffoli was supported by an important patron, Carlo Felice Barberini-Colonna, Duke of Castelvecchio (Italian, 1817-1880), who was the son of Francesco Maria Colonna Barberini, 8th Prince of Palestrina and Vittoria Colonna. Later in his career, Zoffoli produced numerous oil paintings depicting scenes of nobility and clergy, sparing no details to depict his life-like figures residing in decorative Rococo rooms, dressed in high fashions of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Some of his notable works include “The Dance Lesson”, “Meeting the Prospective Suitor”, and “Audience with the Cardinal”, the later of which sold for close to forty thousand dollars at auction in 2004.
