Description:
Battista Dossi
(Tramuschio?, doc. from 1517–1548 Ferrara)

Holy Family and Cherubs

oil on panel, 36.5 x 30 cm, framed

We are grateful to Alessandro Ballarin for confirming the attribution and for dating the present painting to approximately 1517.

This Holy Family and Cherubs is an example of an early work by Battista Dossi when he was still under the influence of his older brother Dosso. It can be compared to the Holy families and a shepherd (one in the Cleveland Museum of Art (38.7 x 32 cm), the other sold at Christie\’\’\’\’s, London, 5th July 1991, lot 82 (33 x 43.5 cm)) and the Oration of Christ in the Garden from the collection of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Ferrara (42.5 x 33 cm), and the Infant Christ learns to walk in the Castle Museum and Art Gallery, Nottingham (43.8 x 42.1 cm); all these works all date approximately from 1516 to 1517.

The present compositional solution features in some early works by Dosso Dossi; in the altarpiece of the Archdiocese from approximately 1514, in the Da Varano family chapel in Santa Maria in Vado, Ferrara; in the altarpiece of San Martino di Codigoro, now in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence (inv. Depositi No. 7, 153 x 114 cm) and in the altarpiece of the Pinacoteca Civica Domenico Inzaghi in Budrio, Emilia-Romagna (inv. 22, 14 x 82 cm), both dating approximately to 1517.

The iconography of the Madonna and Child surrounded by light, adopted first by Raphael in the Madonna of Foligno, appears to relate to the passage of the Book of Revelation 12, which reads: \“And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.\”

The Adoration of the Shepherds

oil on panel

73.8 x 57.5cm (29 1/16 x 22 5/8in).

PROVENANCE:

Acquired by the present owner's grandfather circa 1900

The early careers of Battista Dossi and his elder brother, Dosso, are not well documented and scholars have been much divided when it comes to assessing which of the two artists and to what extent they had a hand in a certain corpus of works dating from the period between 1518 and the early 1530s. In view of this it is notable that the figures of the shepherds in the present work - those standing to the left and those kneeling, lower right - are of superior quality and could support an argument that Battista collaborated with his brother, Dosso.

We are grateful to Professor Alessandro Ballarin for confirming the attribution to Battista Dossi on the basis of a photograph. Ballarin compares the composition to the

Votive Nativity with God the Father

, on panel, (243 x 165 cm.) in the Pinacoteca Estense, Modena. This is a painting that has been subject to different opinions. According to De' Bianchi's contemporary chronicle, this altarpiece was unveiled in the Duomo of Modena on 10 May 1536 and was 'fatta de mane de Mro ... fratello de Mro Doss eximio depintore', thus suggesting that the chronicler meant to list Battista as the author of the work. However, according to other documentation, this painting was commissioned to Dosso on 20 December 1533, when he was given a first payment of 102 lire, and there were further payments in May and August 1534. While most writers have resolved the apparent conflict in the documentary evidence by assuming that the work was a collaboration between the two brothers, it has been argued that Dosso in receiving payment was merely acting in his capacity as head of the workshop and Felton Gibbons in his monograph of 1968 argues on stylistic grounds that the panel is the sole work of Battista (F. Gibbons,

Dosso and Battista Dossi, Court Painters at Ferrara

(Princeton, 1968), no. 107, pp. 229-230, ill. fig. 135). The attribution to Battista is a view that has been repeated since by both Alessandro Ballarin and Peter Humfrey, albeit that the former dates this work to circa 1518-19, while the latter suggests a possible date of circa 1530 (P. Humfrey and L. Lucco,

Dosso Dossi, Court Painter in Renaissance Ferrara

(New York, 1998), no. 51, pp. 253-55, ill, p. 254; A. Ballarin,

Dosso Dossi: La Pittura a Ferrara negli anni del ducato di Alfonso I

(Cittadella, 1994), fig. CXXIX).

Another comparable work is

The Holy Family with the infant Saint John

(58.3 x 38.6 cm., sold at Sotheby's, London, 12 June 1969, lot 29 and now in a Private Collection, Switzerland). In certain parts, however, this latter painting is slightly advanced in quality and more developed than some of Battista's early works and Carlo Volpe considered it to be a close collaboration between the two brothers in the early 1520s when their work is hard to separate. However, both Felton Gibbons and A. Mezzetti consider the painting to be by Battista alone, the former perceiving it to be a youthful work by Battista, circa 1519, while Mezzetti dates the picture to the 1540s, during the artist's most intense period of activity (see: Matthiesen Fine Art,

From Borso to Cesare d'Este, The School of Ferrara 1450-1628

(London, 1984), no. 42, p. 90, ill. pl. 43).

Lot Notes
First certainly recorded in 1864 as by Peruzzi - whose authorship of the cartoon of the subject, formerly in the National Gallery but now in the British Museum, was widely known at the time - the picture has been unanimously accepted as by Battista Dossi since Phillips' 1915 publication. Phillips regarded it as an early work, possibly the earliest known, and suggested the intervention of Battista's brother Dosso in the architecture: 'a distinction' which to Borenius did 'not seem quite convincing', and has found no subsequent support. Mezzetti regarded the panel as a mature work, while Gibbons favoured a date soon after 1510, that is at the outset of the artist's career. Ballarin's dating is circa 1535 (text) and circa 1539-40 (caption to plate), and there are indeed evident similarities with, for example, a small picture in the Accademia Carrara, Bergamo (no. 725, Gibbons, no. 494, fig. 230), for which a similar chronology is proposed.
There was evidently a considerable demand in Ferrara for small, finely finished devotional panels of the kind. While Battista's overriding debt is inevitably to Dosso, this panel should be seen as an example of his working in competition with such rivals as Garofalo and Girolamo da Carpi who were both particularly successful in compositions of this type and scale.
