CATALOGUE NOTE
In 1915, the San Francisco Examiner described RaffaelloRomanelli as "to Italy what Rodin is to France" (June 11, 1915).Professor Raffaello was the second generation of a dynasty ofFlorentine sculptors active from the 1820s. Like his father,Pasquale, and his son, Romano, he worked in a traditional style,making numerous public monuments, as well as more commercialsubject marbles and portrait busts. At the height of his career,around the turn of the century, Raffaello had an internationalreputation and was regarded by many as "Italy's greatest livingsculptor" (The Anglo-American Gazette, Nice, March 14, 1908). Hismodel for the equestrian monument to Czar Alexander II of 1914received widespread acclaim.
At a meeting in Romanelli's studio in 1925, A. Bartlettdescribed how Romanelli always puts "the finishing touches on all[his marbles], injects life lines into them; and it was while hestood there that I saw the sculptor with a fine chisel addwonderful expression to the eyes and mouth of a nymph, and withmarvellous dexterity soften the dimples of a laughing child."

Description:
catalogue note in 1915 the san francisco examiner described raffaello romanelli as \\‘to italy what rodin is to france\\’\\’ (11 june 1915). professor raffaello was the second generation of a dynasty of florentine sculptors active from the 1820s. like his father, pasquale, and his son, romano, he worked in a traditional style, making numerous public monuments as well as more commercial subject marbles and portrait busts. at the height of his career, around the turn of the century, raffaello had an international reputation and was regarded by many as \\‘italy\\’\\’s greatest living sculptor\\’\\’ (the anglo-american gazette, nice, 14 march 1908). his model for the equestrian monument to czar alexander ii of 1914 received widespread acclaim. the present marble epitomises romanelli\\’\\’s ideal or subject sculpture. technically fluent and compositionally restrained, these works were sold to an international clientele visiting florence. at a meeting in romanelli\\’\\’s studio in 1925, a. bartlett described how romanelli always puts \\‘the finishing touches on all [his marbles], injects life lines into them; and it was while he stood there that i saw the sculptor with a fine chisel add wonderful expression to the eyes and mouth of a nymph, and with marvellous dexterity soften the dimples of a laughing child\\’\\’. the subject of the present marble, sulamitide, is inspired by the 18th century author giuseppe maria ercolani\\’\\’s play la sulamitide boschereccia sagra di neralco pastore arcade, published in 1732, about a son of the king of egypt during the time of solomon. another version of this marble sold in these rooms on 26 november 1996 for £45,000. related literature bartlett, p.14; panzetta, vol.1, p.236; vicario, vol.2, pp.900-901

r. romanelli
/

white marble this lot contains 1 item(s).
son of pasquale romanelli, raffaello is best remembered as one of the foremost italian monumental sculptors of his generation. he studied under his father (a pupil of lorenzo bartolini) and august rivalta at the accademia di belle arti in florence, moving to rome briefly in 1880. during the 1890's he was fully employed on numerous funerary and public monuments in florence, including those to donatello (chiesa medicea di san lorenzo) and cellini on the ponte vecchio. international fame was secured by high-profile commissions such as the demidoff monument in kiev and the general martin monument in caracas, as well as through his successive showings at the international exhibitions. he was eventually appointed professor of the accademia where he promoted his naturalistic style and was followed by his son romano, who had an equally successful career as a sculptor.

another marble figure of the
young woman crossing a stream
, signed but undated, was sold in these rooms as lot 150, 4th june 1998.
