Description:
Salvator Rosa ARENELLA, NAPLES 1615 - 1673 ROME THE LOOTING OF AN ANCIENT CITY ON A SEASHORE Pen and brown ink and wash 136 by 200 mm; 5 3/8 by 7 3/4 in Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Saleroom Notice We have not been able to connect this very interesting compositional drawing with any known paintings by Rosa, but stylistically, the strong and very quick use of the pen can be compared with drawings from the 1650s and 1660s. Complete compositional studies such as this are, however, extremely rare in Rosa's work. Also unusual is the indication of classical buildings to the right; we only have one similarly drawn architectural study by the artist, a sheet in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, showing the upper section of a ruined Roman temple, which is connected to Rosa's 1652 painting of a Battle, in the Louvre. 1 Mahoney defined the style of Rosa from this moment on as characterised by electric pen work, often creating quick preliminary ideas to be worked up later in more finished studies, and contrasting with the careful studying of architecture that we see in the Fitzwilliam drawing. 1. Cambridge, Fitzwilliam Museum, inv. no. 2922; M. Mahoney, The Drawings of Salvator Rosa, New York/London 1977, vol. I, no. 40.20, reproduced vol. II, fig. 40.20 Laid down. Scattered foxing throughout the sheet. Pen and ink remain fresh and vibrant.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
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
