The present work was executed in Switzerland, where Fontanesilived between 1848 and 1866, at first seeking refuge therefollowing his participation with Garibaldi's forces in Italy's warwith Austria. In 1850, he settled in Geneva, from where he travelled to France,to London and back to Italy. His work of this period is quitedifferent to his later style - calmer and more limpid, with asingle-minded focus on the qualities of light and shade, which hasa strong echo of the work of Fontanesi's friend, the Swiss artistAlexandre Calame. The present painting was executed at a key turning point in hiscareer, when Fontanesi travelled to Paris for the 1855 ExpositionUniverselle in Paris, where he absorbed fully for the first timethe lessons of Corot and the Barbizon School. It is one of twopaintings of Urirostock painted by Fontanesi (see also M. Bernardi,Milan, 1934, Fontanesi, Tav. I). The artist has focussed on thestructural form of the landscape and the clarity of the earlymorning, which throws up strong reliefs of light and dark. The present work is sold with a copy of a letter of authenticity byAngelo Dragone, dated 3 March 1991.

Lot Notes
The present work was executed in Switzerland, where Fontanesi
lived between 1848 and 1866, at first seeking refuge there
following his participation with Garibaldi's forces in Italy's war
with Austria.

In 1850, he settled in Geneva, from where he travelled to France,
to London and back to Italy. His work of this period is quite
different to his later style - calmer and more limpid, with a
single minded focus on the qualities of light and shade, which has
a strong echo of the work of Fontanesi's friend, the Swiss artist
Alexandre Calame.

The present painting was executed at a key turning point in his
career, when Fontanesi travelled to Paris for the 1855 Exposition
Universelle in Paris, where he absorbed fully for the first time
the lessons of Corot and the Barbizon School. It is one of two
paintings of Urirostock painted by Fontanesi (see also M. Bernardi,
Milan, 1934, Fontanesi, Tav. I). The artist has focussed on the
structural form of the landscape and the clarity of the early
morning, which throws up strong reliefs of light and dark.

The present work is sold with a copy of a letter of authenticity by
Angelo Dragone, dated 3 March 1991.

Lot Notes
Antonio Fontanesi was to landscape painting in Italy whatCamille Corot was to France - an artist who developed anincreasingly poetic vision of nature after having spent much of hisyouth painting en plein air studying the effects of light andcolour.
The present work belongs to the series of atmospheric late works,in which Fontanesi focussed on the effects of twilight in woodlandlandscapes, paintings which, in addition to Corot, also derivedtheir influence from artists such as Claude (whom he encouraged hisstudents to emulate), and also from Turner, whose work he had seenin London.
