Description:
Nicola Malinconico (Naples 1663-1721) Aaron and the punishment of Korah with inscription 'Incenzo di Aronno' black chalk, pen and brown ink, brown wash, partly squared in black chalk, the lower corners made up 17 3/8 x 25 in. (44 x 63.1 cm.)

After his training with Luca Giordano (1634-1705), the Neapolitan master Nicola Malinconico developed a distinctive drawing style, characterized by broken outlines and a painterly use of brown and grey washes. Scavizzi (op. cit.) recognized this impressively large sheet as a typical work by the artist and connected it to a series of fourteen scenes from the Old Testament that Malinconico painted for Santa Maria Maggiore, Bergamo (1692-93). The ambitious composition can be identified through an old inscription as Aaron and the punishment of Korah: worshipped by the crowd at center, Aaron is the focus of this restless scene, animated by Maliconico with his characteristic fragmented pen style. It finds close comparisons with drawings of Biblical episodes like The Transport of the Ark of the Covenant in Washington D.C. (National Gallery of Art, inv. 2007.11.94) and The Crossing of the Red Sea in Verona (Collezione Banca Popolare; both discussed by Viviana Farina in L\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’idea del Barocco a Napoli: \‘Macchie\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’ e disegni di Luca Giordano, Francesco Solimena e Seguaci, 1670-1790, Cava dei Tirreni 2014, pp. 10-13 and no. 5). We are grateful to Viviana Farina for confirming the attribution to Malinconico based on a digital image.

Literature
Notes: The first to recognise Malinconico as responsible for the figures in this painting was Lanfranco Ravelli (op. cit.) in his groundbreaking article which explored the activity of the artist as a painter of still lifes. He dated the painting to circa 1683, when Nicola would have been 20 years old and Brueghel settled in Naples for a few years. In a letter to the owner after the publication of his aforementioned book, Professor Luigi Salerno confirmed the figures in this picture to by Nicola Malinconico, describing the work as an 'opera bellissima'.
Literature: L. Ravelli, 'Un pittore partenopeo a Bergamo: Nicola Malinconico e le sue 'Historiae Sacrae' per Santa Maria Maggiore', Atti dell'Ateneo di Scienze Lettere ed Arti, XLVIII, 1987-8, pp. 11 and 49-50, figs. 7-8. L. Salerno, Nuovi studi sulla natura morta italiana, Rome, 1989, pp. 84-5, fig. 76 (with reversed image).
