Catalogue Note
Only recently discovered, this superb canvas depicting The Immaculate Conception with the Prophet Elijiah is a modello for Corrado Giaquinto\’\’\’\’s altarpiece in the church of Madonna del Carmine, Turin. The painting, which dates between 1740 and 1741, is one of four known studies relating to the Turin altarpiece. One preparatory study, which concentrates on the representation of the Virgin, was supposedly donated by the artist himself to the Accademia di San Luca, Rome, where it remains today (inv. no. 0372, fig. 1).
A further study, similarly focused on the Virgin, was recorded in 1958 by Mario D\’\’\’\’Orsi in the Capocchiani collection, Molfetta.
Until the discovery of the present painting, the so-called \“definitive\” modello was considered to be that in the Pinacoteca Comunale, Montefortino (inv. no. 36), which is the only other painting besides this one to represent the composition in its entirety, complete with the depiction of Elijah.
The altarpiece was commissioned for the church of Madonna del Carmine by the Marchese Ercole Giuseppe Lodovico Torinetti di Priero. Giaquinto completed the canvas in Rome and sent it to Turin, where its arrival was recorded in the church\’\’\’\’s Liber Diarius Secretarii Conventus Carmelitanorum on July 12, 1741: ''Addi 12 Luglio 1741 si ricevette nel nostro convento il quadro dell'Immaculata Concezione di Maria Vergine rappresentata con quella Visione della picciola nuvoletta avuta dal nostro S. Padre Elia\” (\“On the day of 12
th
July 1741 we received in our convent the painting of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary represented in that Vision of the little cloud had by our Saint Father Elijah\”).
4
The composition is described in meticulous detail in the Liber Diarius. The church's Carmelite priests dedicated particular devotion to the Prophet Elijah and from the entry, it seems the decision to include him in the altarpiece had been a very deliberate one. The altarpiece was destined for a chapel dedicated to the prophet, \“questo quadro fu lavorato ex professo in maniera che vi fosse dipinto il nostro Santo Padre Elia, affinchè detta cappella servi ancora per celebrare la festa di lui ai 20 di luglio\” (\“this picture was worked ex professo in such a manner that our Saint Father Elijah could be painted in order that said chapel could still serve for the celebration of his festival on the 20
th
July\”). The convent was thrilled with the painting, claiming it to be \“stimato per tutti per un Capo d\’\’\’\’opera\” ( \“admired by all as a masterpiece\”) and considered to be worth far more than the amount paid.

Provenance

Anonymous sale, New York, Sotheby's, 28 May 1999, lot 110, where acquired by the present owner.

Executed in the 1750s in Spain, when Giaquinto was at the peak of his career, this beautifully moon-lit painting is a typical work by the artist. As an angel holds up Christ's body at the foot of the Cross, his mother mourns over him, the crown of thorns and the nails lying by his feet.The characteristic physiognomies, the carefully modelled figures and the voluminous folds of the drapery are bathed in a silver light which renders all the more acute the poignancy of the scene.

The figures of Christ and the angel to his right recur in Giaquinto's fresco of the Trinity in the vault of the presbytery of the Capilla Real in Madrid, for which a preparatory canvas, possibly a ricordo, is in the Museo del Prado (inv. no. 3204).
1
A drawing for the figure of Christ is in the Museo di San Martino in Naples (fig.1).

At the time of the 1999 sale the attribution was confirmed by Irene Cioffi following first-hand inspection.
