Description:
The Master of Marradi (active in Tuscany, 1480–1500) Madonna and Child with an angel, tempera on panel, tondo, 85.5 cm, unframed Provenance: with Leasarte, Milan (according to a label on the reverse) Private Collection, Piedmont The present painting is registered in the Fototeca Zeri (inv. 13650) as the Maestro di Marradi. The tondo represents the Madonna, seated and supporting the Child on her knee, while tenderly holding his foot in her left hand and proffering a flower in her right. The standing Child leans forward, his right hand in a gesture of benediction. His left hand grips a goldfinch, an allusion to the Passion. Both figures are turned towards the angel who kneels at their side, paying homage with flowers. Above, the scene is framed by red draped curtains, and in the background, beyond a marble screen, a landscape opens out over a lake. The Master of Marradi produced altarpieces, tondi, ornamented chests or forzieri, and small devotional panels in Tuscany between the late 15th century and the early 16th century. The artist is named after a large nucleus of his works, which are conserved in the church of San Lorenzo at Marradi, in the province of Florence, situated in the Appennines dividing Tuscany and Emilia Romagna. The corpus of works from which he gains his name were originally situated in the nearby abbey church of Santa Reparata in Salto at Badia del Borgo and consist of five altarpieces, the most important of which represents the titular saint of the abbey complex, the Santa Reparata Altarpiece dated 1498. The latest work in his corpus can be dated with certainty; it is the Enthroned Madonna and Child of Montefiridolfi of 1513. During the last century, various scholars identified this anonymous artist with a specific artistic personality: among them Roberto Longhi and Wilhelm Suida proposed different names. However, it was during the 1960s that Federico Zeri coined the current and generally accepted name, based on his identification of the most substantial body of works by this anonymous master at Marradi. The Bolognese scholar identified this artist as a follower of the circle of Domenico Ghirlandaio, active in both Florence and its territories, as in the case of Marradi. Moreover, the artist reflects the influence of his contemporaries, including Botticelli, Filippino Lippi and Perugino, by creating works, such as the present one in which rigorous compositional sobriety is combined with a delicate linearism. This is seen in the figures’’’’’’’’ gracefully depicted faces and draperies and in certain passages, such as the Virgin’’’’’’’’s transparent veil.

DESCRIPTIONoil on panel PROVENANCE Alfred Hausammann, Zurich, by 1967; His deceased sale, London, Christie's, 10 July 2002, lot 111, where acquired by the present owner. LITERATURE AND REFERENCES E. Fahy, "Some Early Italian Pictures in the Gambier-Parry Collection", in TheBurlington Magazine, vol. CIX, March 1967, p. 134, under note 30; E. Fahy, Some Followers of Domenico Ghirlandaio, New York and London 1976, p. 184. CATALOGUE NOTE It was not until 1967 that Everett Fahy firmly attributed this panel to the Master of Marradi. This pupil of Domenico Ghirlandaio, active in Florence during the second half of the fifteenth century, had been called Maestro Tondo by Roberto Longhi after the rounded faces of his figures, but was renamed by Zeri in 1963. His name comes from the town of Marradi, to the north-east of Florence, where five pictures by the master can be found. His work was strongly influenced by Ghirlandaio, leading to some confusion between the two artists in the past.1 Aside from religious works, the Master of Marradi also specialised in painting cassone panels depciting classical subjects; one such example was sold in London, Sotheby's, 8 July 1999, lot 63. 1. See, for example, the panel offered London, Christie's, 21 April 1989, lot 118, which had formerly been wrongly attributed to Ghirlandaio.

(34.5 x 26 cm.) FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE LATE MR ALFRED HAUSAMMANN, ZURICH (Lots 96-114) Literature E. Fahy, 'Some Early Italian Pictures in the Gambier-Parry Collection', The Burlington Magazine, 109, March 1967, p. 134, note 30. Lot Notes Filed in the Berenson library under Baldovinetti, this work was published as by the Master of Marradi by Everett Fahy (loc. cit.), to whom we are very grateful for his assistance in cataloguing this lot, and who has informed us that the possibly period copy in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (acc. no. 35.7.58) was sold to the dealer Victor Spark, New York, in 1956. Also known as the Apolloni Sacrum Master, the Master of Marradi was first identified by Federico Zeri ('la mostra "Arte in Valdelsa" a Certaldo', Bolletino d'arte, XLVIII, July-September 1963, pp, 249-50). a follower of Domenico Ghirlandaio akin to the work of Bartolommeo di Giovanni, the anonymous Master worked in Florence until late in his career when he moved to the Mugello, where he worked in a mountain church called the Badia del Borgo near the town of Marradi on the road from Florence to Faenza.
