Description : Fanciulla con cesto di frutta

Sanguine on paper. Signed lower right. On the back this number 55 in pencil, probably collection number, which could be that of Carlo Prayer, characterized by the mounting on a black border. It is the work of the Venetian artist Giuseppe Bernardino Bison, who, while living in full neoclassicism and not estranging himself from the most up-to-date artistic movements, remained tied to the great Venetian tradition, which is revealed both in his production as a fresco artist and in his intense production from an easel dedicated to genre scenes, to views of Venice, to characteristic "capricious" landscapes often dominated by the remains of classical architecture in ruins, crossed by travelers and populated by figurines engaged in daily activities in the presence of a cultured nature in its most picturesque. Also in this small sketch the Bison proposes a fresh figure of a girl of the people, a seller of fruit that she is offering with a lively and natural gesture of the hand. The work is proposed in an exposed frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Giuseppe Bernardino Bison (1762-1844)

Born in Palmanova (Udine), Giuseppe Bernardino Bison when still a child moved to Brescia with his family and in this city, due to his lively disposition to art, he was initiated to pictorial studies by G. Romani and S. Gandini. The family subsequently settled in Venice, where Bison attended the Academy of Painting from 1779 to 1789, where, in those years, the subjects taught were nude drawing and perspective, subjects in which Bison earned several awards. In Venice he became a friend of the architect G. A. Selva, the author of the Fenice Theater, who got him some assignments in the first years of activity and gave him the opportunity to work as a set designer in Treviso, at the Fenice in Venice, at the Nuovo in Trieste. . The work took him to various Italian cities, also working a lot as a decorator, to finally land, in 1831 in Milan, over he remained until his death, participating for several years in the exhibitions of the Brera Academy.

Technical specification: Blood

The blood, that in the artistic tradition defines a particular graphics technique, is a drawing tool, one of the oldest. It is composed of hematite, a ferrous mineral, cut into strips, and properly pointed, with which you can draw on the paper signs from the characteristic reddish colour that reminds of blood (hence the name of the blood). The mixture of iron, moreover, is often enriched with small amounts of ochre.
