About

Painter active in Florence in the late 17th century Antonio Domenico Gabbiani (Florence 1652 - 1726) attributable to Portrait of a noble lady with patrician heraldic coat of arms (II / II) Oil on canvas, 90 x 74 cm. Framed 109 x 94 cm. We are pleased to present this beautiful "Portrait of a Gentlewoman" (whose pendant is available) which depicts the exponent of a family of noble rank, presumably Florentine, but it is not excluded that it may be a family of French origin, as can be inferred from sumptuous and elegant clothing, and from the complex coat of arms that stands out in the upper part of the painting. In the painting we can appreciate the definition with which the garments were defined, where the meticulously finished laces and precious fabrics embroidered with gold thread motifs and embellished with small jewel brooches, confirm the high social extraction of the portrayed. The pleasant conduction that characterizes the refined stroke is appreciated, finally, in the ability to make the light flow on the clothes and of course on the rendering of the facial features. The noblewoman exhibits a severe and proud expression, a barely hinted smile but full of determination; the erect and authoritative pose is softened by the fluffy hairstyle intertwined with a pearl ribbon. The work, attributable to the Florentine pictorial environment of the last part of the seventeenth century, condenses the stylistic characteristics typical of the painter Antonio Domenico Gabbiani (Florence 1652 - 1726), celebrated portraitist of the Medici court who could boast Cosimo III and Prince Ferdinando among the its main protectors and patrons. He portrayed the members of the Florentine aristocracy, giving their characters the psychological and investigative aspect, as well as in the refinement of the features and in the vibrant pictorial stroke. The chromatic range is balanced and refined. The painting is all played on the different shades of browns, illuminated by the delicate whites of the shirt and the emerald green of the lining of the dress. Pupil of Sustermans and Vincenzo Dandini, he became one of the most sought after painters in the city. His stays in Rome and then in Venice, at the studio of the painter Sebastiano Bombelli, made him perfect his already appreciated skills as a portraitist. Alongside the official portraits of Vittoria Della Rovere, Prince Ferdinando de’Medici and his sister, Anna Maria Luisa, he painted a very large number of works for secondary members of the family, becoming the official painter of the Medici court. Our beautiful canvas can be compared, in composition and style, to the portrait of Anna Maria Luisa de 'Medici (1685), today in the Palatine Gallery (Palazzo Pitti). The painting is in excellent condition, enriched by a fine gilded wood frame. For more information, please contact us. Painting accompanied by a certificate of photographic authenticity in accordance with the law (FIMA - CINOA)
