Lot Notes
Born of a Milanese father and a Portuguese mother, who whereliving at the court of the Prince of Eboli, Don Ruy Gmez de Silva,Maino probably travelled to Italy before the end of the sixteenthcentury. The considerable influence that the work of Caravaggio hadon the artist is illustrated by the altarpiece he painted for theDominican convent of San Pedro Mrtir, Toledo, after his return toSpain in 1612 (A.E. Prez Snchez, 'Sobre Juan Bautista Maino',Archivo Espaol de Arte, no. 278, 1997, pp. 114ff.). The nervouspattern of the richly coloured drapery contrasting with the paleskin tones, coupled with the dramatic use of light, results in theeccentric style that characterizes the present picture and also thevarious scenes of the San Pedro Mrtir altarpiece, and especiallythe Adoration of the Magi (The Prado, no. 886).
Professor Alfonso Prez Snchez points out that the interpretation ofCaravaggio's work is close to that of Orazio Gentileschi, 'showinga preference for light, intense colours, tight sculptural modellingand precise, incisive drawing that is revealed in the naturalisticdetails' (The Dictonary of Art, London, 1996, XX, pp. 125-126). Itis not, therefore, surprising that this picture has been attributedto Orazio in the past. Professor Roger Ward Bissell rejected thisattribution and recognized the hand of Maino (letter, 3 January1999).
Pictures by Maino are rare and very few are recorded in Spanishinventories. Thus it is possible that this unpublished picture isthe Penitent Magdalen, full-length, in the Desert mentioned in thewill of 1628 of Doctor Juan de Matute: 'Ansimo un quadro entero dela Magdalena en el desierto de muy alta pintura de mano de Ju.oBapta Pastrana, de la orden de S. domingo q de pste es y a sido[...]' (M. B. Burke and P. Cherry, Spanish Inventories, I:Collections of Paintings in Madrid 1601-1755, Michigan, 1997, I, p.279, no. 14). It is interesting that Matute noted that Maino was aDominican monk probably because he himself had taken religiousorders (ibid., p. 278).
