Italian Painter’s Portrait Engravings on Laid Paper on Canvas in Ebonized Frames

1790 circa

About the Item

These beautiful Italian 18th Centruy engravings on laid paper feature the portrait of two famous Italian painters: Veronese and Guido Reni. They were engraved by Pier Antonio Pazzi after the drawings made by Giovanni Domenico Campiglia. Campiglia (1692-1768) was a very famous Tuscan painter and engraver who worked mostly in Florence and later in Rome as director of the Calcografia. These two beautiful engravings on paper - put on antique canvas- are both signed by the painter and by the engraver and were probably part of a huge collection. Between 1790 and 1796 Campiglia and Pazzi made an engraving’s volume titled “Raccolta di 324 ritratti di artisti eccellenti”(collection of 324 great painter’s portrait) with the portrait of the 324 most famous artist of 17th and 18th century. Our engraved paper portrait’s on canvas are both housed in antique ebonized black wood frame.

  • Urban Abstraction (ripped off posters) Italian Expressionist Painting on Canvas
    By Andrea Spinelli
    Located in Firenze, IT
    The present work of art titled "Urban Abstraction (ripped off posters)" is part of a series of paintings that the artist composed in the 1980s and 1990s inspired by the observation of the urban reality of those years. The artist take the cue from his walks in Florence, both in the center and in the suburbs, and by the observation of billboards and posters scattered throughout the city. The mass of information, colors, messages and words were carried on the canvas with acrylic colors, ideally reconstructing the tears and overlaps of all the information and advertising contained on these huge sheets of paper that invade our cities. The geometric lines are overlaid with jagged lines, overlaps and color dripping and also the choice in the color palette, with different shades of white, gray, rose, orange red and blue helps in rendering the result of the tears and ripped paper. The result is a beautiful multicolored modern abstract canvas, both aesthetically and ethically, with many rich layers of color, texture and expression in which the artist leaves his own message. The painting is housed in a simple modern white lacquer wood frame. Andrea Spinelli...
