17th Century by Giovanni Battista Beinaschi Saint Bartholomew Oil on Canvas

1670

About the Item

Giovan Battista Beinaschi (Fossano, 1636 - Naples 1688) Saint Bartholomew Oil on canvas, cm. 96 x 71,5 – with frame cm. 108 x 86 Shaped and gilded wooden cassetta frame Expertise: Francesco Petrucci The provenance of this painting is famous and is testified by the cartouche that still follows the work on the back of it. It was part of the collection of General Sextius Alexandre François de Miollis and even earlier probably belonged to the Neapolitan collection of the Duke of Frisa. The subject is the apostle Bartholomew, immediately identifiable by the knife in his right hand, the symbol of his torture, martyred by flaying. The work has been attributed by critics to Giovan Battista Beinaschi, an artist of the first order on the Italian seventeenth-century scene.

  • Head of an Angel
    Located in New York, NY
    Procaccini was born in Bologna, but his family moved to Milan when the artist was eleven years old. His artistic education was evidently familial— from his father Ercole and his elder brothers Camillo and Carlo Antonio, all painters—but his career began as a sculptor, and at an early age: his first known commission, a sculpted saint for the Duomo of Milan, came when he was only seventeen years old. Procaccini’s earliest documented painting, the Pietà for the Church of Santa Maria presso San Celso in Milan, was completed by 1604. By this time the artist had made the trip to Parma recorded by his biographers, where he studied Correggio, Mazzola Bedoli, and especially Parmigianino; reflections of their work are apparent throughout Procaccini's career. As Dr. Hugh Brigstocke has recently indicated, the present oil sketch is preparatory for the figure of the angel seen between the heads of the Virgin and St. Charles Borrommeo in Procaccini's altarpiece in the Church of Santa Afra in Brescia (ill. in Il Seicento Lombardo; Catalogo dei dipinti e delle sculture, exh. cat. Milan 1973, no. 98, pl. 113). As such it is the only known oil sketch of Procaccini's that can be directly connected with an extant altarpiece. The finished canvas, The Virgin and Child with Saints Charles Borrommeo and Latino with Angels, remains in the church for which it was painted; it is one of the most significant works of Procaccini's maturity and is generally dated after the artist's trip to Genoa in 1618. The Head of an Angel is an immediate study, no doubt taken from life, but one stylistically suffused with strong echoes of Correggio and Leonardo. Luigi Lanzi, writing of the completed altarpiece in 1796, specifically commented on Procaccini's indebtedness to Correggio (as well as the expressions of the angels) here: “Di Giulio Cesare...

  • Portrait of William, Baron Craven wearing a green jacket in an interior
    By Thomas Beach
    Located in Bath, Somerset
    Portrait of William Craven, 6th Baron Craven of Hamstead Marshall, Berkshire (1738-1791), three-quarter length, standing in an interior, wearing a blue silk embroidered waistcoat under a pale green jacket with silver buttons, resting his right hand on a cane and his left in his pocket, wearing a powdered wig. Provenance: The collection of Anthony Boyden, Dewlish, Dorset. During conservation and restoration of the portrait, the revealing of various pentimenti in the sitter's clothing and posture, suggest that it may have been the basis for a more complex full-length version painted by Beach in 1778 of William holding the architectural plans in his study of Benham Park, the country seat of the Cravens in Berkshire. This was listed in the paintings inventory of Coombe Abbey, the primary seat of the Earls of Craven in Warwickshire in 1866 and sold at Sotheby's Paris in the Robert de Balkany...
