Description:
Salvator Rosa (Arenella, Naples 1615-1673 Rome) A study for the Martyrdom of Saints Cosmas and Damian, c. 1669, each inscribed "L. Carracci" below the drawing and in an cartouche on the mount, pen and brown ink on laid paper, 27 x 18,5 cm, old mount, browned, considerably stained, mounted, unframed, (Sch) Provenance: Collector’’’’s mark Pierre Crozat (Lugt 1740) on the recto, his mount with the attribution to L. Carracci and inscription "Lud: Caracci/ Ecole Lombarde 1555-1619". Literature: For a group of other preliminary drawings of the painting, see: M. Mahoney, The Drawings of Salvator Rosa, New York/ London, 1977, No. 87.1410; L. Salerno, Salvator Rosa, Milan 1963, No. 91. The present drawing may be an early study for the painting “Martyrdom of Saints Cosmas and Damian” which Salvator Rosa created for the church San Giovanni dei Fiorentini in Rome in1669. (Compare Salerno 1963, No. 91). The painting was assigned to the artist by Marchese Filippo Neri, who commissioned the painting for his chapel. Even though the arrangement of the figures in the drawing differs in certain details of the composition from the ones in the painting, there are also distinct similarities: the falling figures, the placement of the two saints at the left margin and the group of angels and sleeping soldiers. A group of comparable preliminary drawings for the painting is published in: Mahoney, 1977 (No. 87.1410) and Salerno 1963 (No.91). Specialist: Mag. Astrid-Christina Schierz

Description:
Provenance Possibly Jaques Courtois, il Borgognone (1621-1675); Thereafter recorded in the collection of Conte Franceso Maria Carpegna (1661-1749), Rome; John Spencer (1734-1783), 1 st Earl Spencer, Althorp, Northamptonshire, by 1750; By descent, until 1979, when acquired. Exhibited Northampton, Northants., Museum and Art Gallery, Italy and the Grand Tour in the XVII and XVIII Centuries, 14 March - 11 April 1959, no. 49; also cited in non-paginated introd. by G. Isham; London, Royal Academy of Arts, Italian Art and Britain, 2 January - 6 March 1990, no. 44; London, Hayward Gallery, Salvator Rosa, 17 October- 23 December 1973, no. 8; Naples, Museo di Capodimonte, Salvator Rosa: tra mito e magia, 18 April - 29 June 2008, no. 57. 180 Salvator Rosa ARENELLA, NAPLES 1615 - 1673 ROME A BATTLE SCENE oil on canvas 96.1 by 154.3 cm.; 37 7/8 by 60 3/4 in. Estimate 40,000 - 60,000 GBP Print The picture is lighter in tone and fresher in colour than the catalogue illusration would suggest. The canvas has been lined and the paint surface appears to be in very good condition if a little thin in the darker more fugitive pigments. There is no damage or loss of paint visible to the naked eye however there is localised surface dirt and a slightly motled varnish overall. Examination under ultraviolet reveals some minor scattered retouching throughout the sky which includes retouching to an old vertical surface scratch measuring approx. 1 in. in the centre left and some retouching to two vertical lines running down the canvas weave centre right, through the two figures to the right of the sword wielding horseman. Otherwise the picture seems to be in good overall condition. Offered in a smart gilt wood and plaster frame in good overall condition. .
