Lot 213 ANDREA LANZANI (italian born circa 1650-1712) CHRIST CROWNED WITH THORNS Oil on canvas 26 x 20 3/4 in. (66 x 52.7cm) provenance: Private Collection, New York. note: Dr. Silvia Colombo has kindly confirmed the authenticity of this work on the basis of photographs. Christ Crowned with Thorns is a recurring theme in Milanese painting and this particular painting was no doubt inspired by Correggio's Ecce Homo in the National Gallery, London. The present painting compares to an Ecce Homo by Lanzani in the Collegiata di San Giovanni Battista, Morbegno, datable to around 1680. Recorded in the contents of the artist's studio upon his death was a half length Ecce Homo and this may well be the painting described: L. 192 (Colombo - Dall'Omo, Andrea Lanzani 1641-1712. Protagonista del barocchetto lombardo, Milano 2007, p. 143, 199 e 200). Thanks to Silvia A. Colombo for her help compiling the present entry. Works by Andrea Lanzani rarely appear at auction. A Milanese painter and draftsman, he studied with Carlo Maratta and has important works at the Schloss Galerie, Pommersfelden.
