Harem, Giulio Rosati Oil on Wood Orientalism 19th Century Italian Painting

About

Giulio Rosati (Roma 1861 - Roma 1917) Harem Preparatory study for a larger oil on canvas painting. Sold by Sotheby's on 04/16/1991 at a price of 68.945 euros. Provenance: Heirs of the Painter, Not Signed Giulio Rosati was an academic painter, mostly Orientalist, belonging to the "Italian school". He studied drawing and painting in Rome, at the Accademia di S. Luca starting from 1875, and had as teachers the academicians Dario Querci and Francesco Podesti, then the Spanish painter Louis Alvarez Catala. He was one of the most prolific orientalist painters of the period between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Rosati painted in oil, but much more often and effectively with the watercolor, of which he mastered the technique. Orientalism, as a choice of subjects and pictorial taste, soon became his favorite theme, in particular the places and characters of the Maghreb of which he painted the characters in a very colorful way, as if they came from a story of adventures. On the other hand it is not at all certain that he traveled to the places he painted, and his documentation, therefore, does not come from direct experience, but from photographs or objects that could be found in those years in Rome, where he resided. He also developed other themes, such as the game of chess, which he set in eighteenth-century scenes. Giulio Rosati died in Rome in 1917, at the age of 59 years. His son Alberto (1895-1971) was a well-known landscape painter. The measurement shown is of the painting without frame.
