Description:
Giovanni Antonio Burrini
(Bologna 1656–1727)

Adoration of the Magi,

oil on canvas, 102.5 x 155.5 cm, framed

We are grateful to Professor Daniele Benati for suggesting the attribution on the basis of a digital photograph.

Burrini was among the most original and gifted Bolognese painters of his time, and his Baroque style, colourfully dramatic, impetuous and passionate, opposed the cool refinement of the classical art of Carlo Cignani and Marcantonio Franceschini.

Until 1672 he trained in the studio of Domenico Maria Canuti, an exponent of grand-scale fresco decoration, and then with Lorenzo Pasinelli, Burrini followed the conventional course of studies for a Bolognese painter of this period, studying the celebrated fresco cycles by the Carracci in the Palazzo Fava and the Palazzo Magnani and famous pictures in the various churches and palazzi of the city. Burrini visited Venice and his study of the pictures of Titian and Veronese inspired in his own work a sumptuousness of colouring and rich painterly handling that were unusual in the Bolognese tradition. With his teacher, Pasinelli, he was in the vanguard of a neo-Venetian current in Bolognese painting in the late 17th century and this Venetian influence in his work is clearly visible in the present compostion.

Burrini began as a fresco decorator and during the same period Burrini established his reputation as a painter of altarpieces. In 1682–3 the Duca di Mirandola commissioned the Martyrdom of St Victoria (Compiègne, Château) for the cathedral in Mirandola, an energetic and colourful work indebted to Veronese. There followed the Virgin with SS Petronius and Dionysius the Areopagite (1684) for the church of San Giacomo Maggiore, Bologna (now in Monghidoro, parish church), his first public work in Bologna and closer to the art of the Carracci. It was commissioned by the Ratta family, who also ordered an Adoration of the Magi (Cambridge, MA, Fogg Museum). He shared a studio with Giuseppe Maria Crespi for two years between 1686–8 and was possibly influential in encouraging the development of Crespi\’\’\’\’s forceful and painterly style (see D. Miller, Oxford Art Dictionary).

Burrini was among the artists who founded the Accademia Clementina in Bologna in 1709. He took an active part in its affairs and was its seventh director between 1723– 4.
