Description:
Vincenzo Damini (Venice, active from 1720 – 1749)

The judgement of Solomon,
oil on canvas, 127 x 167 cm, framed

Provenance: Viennese private collection.

The pendant to the present painting was shown in 1970 in the exhibition, Paintings in Italy in the Eighteenth Century in Chicago (exh. cat. p. 63, ill. 20). Little is known about this Venetian artist of the first half of the 18th century: a Bacchanal in the Museum in Kassel, a Judith in the Ringling Museum, Sarasota, which indicates an association with Pellegrini, a Johann von Capistran in the Battle of Belgrade (signed and dated 1737), an Adoration of the Kings (signed and dated 1747), also exhibiting the influence of Pellegrini, as well as several other paintings, all in the churches of L\’\’\’\’Aquila. All exhibit the influence of the Venetians, Bencovich and Piazzetta, as well as Solimena in one case. The temperamental, spontaneous brushstroke of the master heightens the already extraordinary dynamism of the dramatic, richly composed painting, in which Solomon exhibits hisregal, calming influence at the moment of his discussion-making. Above his head in the surmount to the altarpiece is the inscription SAPIENTIA, wisdom.

Lot Notes
Vincenzo Damini was a pupil of Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini, who he accompanied to England in circa 1720. Whilst in England he was chiefly engaged in portrait painting, but was commissioned to paint frescoes in St. Peter-at-Arches, Lincoln (now destroyed), and the series in the north transept of Lincoln Cathedral, which date from the late 1720s and remain in situ.
After a long period of decline, the city of Lincoln began to commission a number of churches in the 1720s, one of which was St. Peters-at-Arches, built in 1724 beside the Guildhall as the civic church. Damini's modello for the apse and cupola of St. Peter-at-Arches, Lincoln, presented here, was commissioned by the City of Lincoln in 1727-8 as part of an overall decorative scheme. Croft-Murray aptly described this modello as 'a lively performance, with distinct touches of Pellegrini about it' (op. cit.). It was preserved in the church until the building's demolition in the 1930s. The painting was then transferred by the Bishop, together with other fittings from the building, to the newly built parish church of St. Giles.

Provenance
Notes: Vincenzo Damini received his early training in Venice, working in the artistic environment of such artists as Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, whom he was certainly influenced by. He was a pupil of Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini, an artist whose decorative schemes in particular enjoyed a great deal of success with the aristocracy of central and northern Europe. Damini accompanied Pellegrini to England around 1720 and worked in London under Francesco Riari 'who caused [him] always to study after the works of the Antients [sic] only to form his taste' (E. Croft-Murray, op. cit., p. 197). Whilst in England he was chiefly engaged in portrait painting, but was commissioned to paint frescoes in St. Peter-at-Arches, Lincoln (now destroyed), and the series in the north transept of Lincoln Cathedral, which date from the late 1720s and remain in situ.

After a long period of decline, the city of Lincoln began to commission a number of churches in the 1720s, one of which was St. Peters-at-Arches, built in 1724 beside the Guildhall as the civic church. Damini's modello for the apse and cupola of St. Peter-at-Arches, Lincoln, presented here, was commissioned by the City of Lincoln in 1727-8 as part of an overall decorative scheme.
