Lot number: 209
Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Alessandro Magnasco, Il Lissandrino (Genoa 1667-1749) Saint Ambrose standing in a niche - en grisaille, a bozzetto oil on paper, laid down on canvas 15 x 7 1/8 in. (38.1 x 18.1 cm.) Muti and De Sarno Prignano recognised this vibrant depiction of St Ambrose as a later work of Alessandro Magnasco, executed around 1725-1726 (op. cit.). For the painting of the following lot, showing Pope Saint Gregory the Great, Guelfi endorsed an attribution to Magnasco in 2013, suggesting its execution in the 1720s. Featuring the same dimensions and closely resembling each other in compositions, both these small canvases might have originally belonged to a group of grisaille paintings depicting the four great Latin Fathers of the Church and were probably intended as preparatory bozzetti for sculptures or large-scale paintings. Another series by Magnasco, designed for a private chapel around 1715-1720, displays figures of the Twelve Apostles, similarly placed within illusionistic stone niches (F.F. Guelfi, \\\‘La pittura di Alessandro Magnasco dalle fonti figurative e culturali alle tenebre della realtà\\\’, Alessandro Magnasco 1667-1749, Milan, 1996, pp. 24 and 26, illustrated). Trained by Filippo Abbiati in Milan, Magnasco\\\’s early works were influenced by the dramatic and contrasting style of seventeenth century artists from Lombardy. Swift and disjointed brushstrokes, an almost monochromatic palette and broad impasto became characteristic for his later oeuvre, which inspired artists such as Guiseppe Bazzani, Marco Ricci and Francesco Guardi.

Geiger, Magnasco, Bergamo 1949, p. 116, pl. 293 (with incorrect measurements 184 x 125 cm); C. Marcenaro (ed.), Pittori genovesi a Genova nel ’’’’’’’’600 e nel ’’’’’’’’700, exhibition catalogue, Genoa 1969, p. 332, mentioned under cat. no. 138; L. Muti/D. De Sarno Prignano, Magnasco, Faenza 1994, p. 311, cat. no. R. 286 (with incorrect measurements 184 x 125 cm, as ‘non attribuibile al Magnasco’’’’’’’’) We are grateful to Professor Fausta Franchini for confirming the attribution. She considers the present work to be an early composition by Magnasco, comparable to the picture in the Galleria di Palazzo Bianco in Genoa. The present painting was first published as an autograph work by Benno Geiger (see literature), but it was no longer attributed to the artist by Laura Muti and Daniele De Sarno Prignano in their monograph of 1994 (see literature). This latter judgement, however, was made on the basis of an unsatisfactory reproduction in Geiger and was revised after the examination of the original
