Provenance

With Fabio Massimo Megna, Rome;

From whom acquired in 2006.

The Sedia del Diavolo, also known as the Tomba di Elio Callistio, is a Roman tomb on the Via Nomentana. By the seventeenth century it lay in ruin and a large part had collapsed, giving the edifice a curious chair-shape appearance, hence its name in Italian. The city had not yet extended as far as the tomb so this characteristic scene by Monaldi, which shows peasants reveling nearby, is probably a realistic depiction of how the locals made use of the immediate environs of the tomb.
Overall the painting is in a lovely state. The canvas has an old glue relining which is firm and stable. The paint surface is in good condition and clean beneath a clear, fresh varnish. Inspection under ultraviolet reveals scattered minor cosmetic retouches here and there and a little more retouching applied to the craquelure pattern, particularly concentrated in the sky surrounding the tower. the painting requires no further work and is ready to hang in its present state. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Paolo Monaldi - a pair (2)
(Rome circa 1750–1800)

A Rural scene with carousing peasants; and A music-making party outdoors

the second monogrammed on the jug left of centre: PM

oil on canvas, 39.4 x 49.7 cm, framed, a pair (2)

Paolo Monaldi painted mainly bambocciate, scenes featuring peasants engaged in the simple pleasures of country life: playing games and music, drinking and dancing. They are set in an arcadian atmosphere without subordinating them to the landscape. The settings frequently include ruined, thatched buildings. In 1767 Monaldi helped Paolo Anesi in the decoration of the Villa Chigi on Via Salaria, Rome, where he painted a series of idyllic scenes. In the 1770s he probably participated in another such decorative venture in the 18th-century apartments of the Palazzo Barberini, where the bambocciate on the doors have been attributed to him.

The first of the pair shows a group of peasants drinking wine, listening to a musician who sits on the side. In the second of these lively scenes, a young girl plays violin accompanied by another musician while an elderly man standing to the right listens thoughtfully and a young man sits at the side, enjoying the music.
