CATALOGUE NOTE

Rare. "Difficile trovarsi completa"
(Brooks). E.R. Sykes, whose mollusc library has been described as "probably the finest and most complete on the subject ever formed by one man" lacked this book. Tony Swann, in a talk to the Conchological Society given in 1992 named it as "one of the great rarities of the field and keenly sought after by collectors". Giuseppe Saverio Poli (1746-1825) is described by DSB as "the founder of the study of molluscs". Although marine biology was his first line of research, he was something of a polymath. His academic posts included chair of physics at the Royal Military Academy of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, and chair of experimental physics at the University of Naples. He was also renowned as a numismatist, and lectured on military history. However, it is for this work on the Mediterranean molluscs for which he is best remembered.

Description:
catalogue note please see the note to the previous lot. these two paintings once formed part of a set of four (with the previous lot) and the present pair is characteristic of giuseppe poli\\’\\’s output, both in the execution of figures and architecture. the nervous energy of the figures and their horses may be compared to those in giuseppe\\’\\’s painting in the cassa di risparmio, pisa, whose authorship is certain thanks to a partial signature and date on the original stretcher.1 also typical of giuseppe are the dark architectural ruins and statuary that act as framing elements in the immediate foreground, as well as the presence of various statues introduced to punctuate the landscape beyond. although both scenes are capricci and entirely imaginary, some of the buildings are vaguely reminiscent of well-known sites in florence. the domed building with numerous arches in the centre of one of the compositions reappears in a number of works by giuseppe, albeit in slightly different form each time, and in one such variant it is described as belonging to a capriccio of piazza ss. annunziata in florence.2 the equestrian statue in the same painting, although not relating to a real sculpture, calls to mind the colleoni monument which is always depicted in views of the campo ss. giovanni e paolo in venice. in the other painting the town square is vaguely inspired by the layout of the piazza della signoria in florence: the tall square building with pointed spire is reminiscent of the palazzo della signoria and the arcade to the right of it is loosely based on the loggia dei lanzi. these vague references to actual buildings are by no means unique in giuseppe or gherardo\\’\\’s œuvre.3 1 see r.p. ciardi, in f. canepa, gherardo e giuseppe poli. la pittura di capriccio nella toscana di primo settecento, pisa 2002, p. 167, cat. no. 140, reproduced. 2 musée des beaux-arts, nancy, inv. 782 ; canepa, op. cit., p. 138, cat. no. 105, reproduced. the building reappears in a painting, one of a pair, with cesare lampronti, rome; canepa, ibid., p. 102, cat. no. 61, reproduced. 3 see, for example, the pair of capricci of the piazza del duomo, pisa, and the piazza della signoria, florence, in the musée des beaux-arts, nancy (inv. 32 & 33); ibid., pp. 136-7, cat. nos. 103 & 104, reproduced in colour. the present picture appears to be a further \\‘poliesque\\’\\’ distortion of the composition of the latter from the nancy pair.
