Oil painting on canvas. Northern European school of the eighteenth century. At the bottom right there is a trace of a monogram. Perhaps the gentleman portrayed is a magistrate, for the white curled wig combined with the black cape and white jabot. The expression on the man's face is severe and haughty. The portrait is inscribed in a painted oval, indicating the previous frame. Restored and relined, it is presented in a late 19th century frame that has been adapted and regilded.

Artistic school: North-European School
Time: 18th Century / 1701 - 1800In the century of the Enlightenment, or the exaltation of reason and science as the only tools that can free man from ignorance and the yoke of the Church and the nobility, art passes from the intent of the Baroque to tell religious truths or to imitate nature, with strong chiaroscuro contrasts and artificial excesses, to the lighter and more vaporous forms (sometimes even frivolous and affected) of the so-called Barocchetto or Rococò, to lead to Neoclassicism which, looking at the ancient art of the Greeks and Romans, wants to re-propose the discovery of beauty, in the search for harmony, proportions, balances.

Artistic technique: PaintingLa pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.
Technical specification: Oil on CanvasThe oil painting is a painting technique using powder pigments mixed with bases in inert and oils.

Oil painting on canvas. Northern Italian school of the eighteenth century. The landscape, set on the banks of a wide river, sees in the center some figures of peasants intent on picking fruit from a tree: a girl holds the ladder while the boy cuts off a bunch, on the left another couple places the fruit collected in a tub. All around a vast green countryside and some farmhouses. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a period frame.
Oil on canvas. The landscape shows a very green countryside, crossed centrally by a watercourse on whose bank, in the foreground, a herd of cattle is watering; in the centre, on the opposite bank, a farmhouse surrounded by greenery, and in the background, blue-coloured peaks under a sky with pink clouds. As is recurrent in 18th century landscape painting, one finds here a bucolic atmosphere of serenity and peace, generated by nature. The painting, restored and retouched, is presented in a lath frame.
Oil on canvas. Italian school of the 18th century. The left field of the scene is occupied by a large ruined architectural structure, a vestige of the past. On the right, with blue mountains in the background, overlooking a town, a wide river flows through the wooded countryside, crossed by a small bridge over which two figures of travellers pass. The painting is part of the broad production that was widely in vogue, especially between the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century, which took the name of Architectural Capriccio, a genre defined as the art of composing the landscape through the free combination of real or fantastic architectural elements, reworked ruins of antiquity, figures and macchiettas, according to a variety of declinations ranging from the grotesque to the visionary, from the picturesque to the elegiac. Restored and reworked, the painting is presented in a stylish frame.
Oil on canvas. Northern Italian School of the 18th century. The broad landscape shows in the centre a herdsman who has just passed with his cattle over the small bridge over the stream, which flows through the wooded countryside; in the background, again in the centre, a farmhouse and several country buildings. Restored and retouched, the painting is presented in a stylish frame.
Oil on canvas. Italian school of the 17th century. The putative father of Jesus, clearly identified by the flowery staff on top, holds the child in his arms, stretching it out as if to present and offer it to the world; a look of tenderness passes between the two. Restored and re-framed, the painting is presented in a stylish frame.
Oil on canvas. From a private collection in which they were combined as a pendant, the two compositions are actually different in manufacturing and technique, as well as in the size of the canvases. The slightly larger canvas (71 x 91 cm), in oil, features two different wicker baskets filled with white and red grapes, surrounded by other fruit (pears and peaches) and with a curious squirrel sniffing the air; the dark background is empty. The second canvas (64 x 88 cm) is made with the lean oil technique, which makes it very close for pictorial effect to a tempera on canvas; the composition is made up of variegated flowers and fruit (watermelon, grapes, peaches), and is placed in an external environment, albeit not very defined (the clouds on the left). Both canvases need cleaning; the first shows traces of previous restoration and relining (patch on the back), while the second, in her very worn first canvas, has very widespread small holes and drops of color. Both works are presented in white lacquered frames, albeit different in shape.
Tempera on canvas. Chaekkori, which translated literally means "books and objects", is a type of painting of the Still Life genre belonging to the end of the Korean dynastic period called Choson (1392 -1910), in particular which developed from the second half of the 18th century to the first half of the '900, which was widely successful in all social states, to express the love for the culture of the Korean population. It is characterized by the depiction of various objects that define the man of letters, in particular books are always present, as in this one proposed here, in which a goose pen for writing is placed side by side, a set of porcelain bowls, a fan folded in its case. Relined and restored, the painting is presented in an early 1900s frame.
Oil painting on canvas. Venetian school of the seventeenth century. The scene is full of figures and movement, and tells an episode of sacred history in a domestic guise. The little Maria, newborn, is in the center in the arms of the maids who are about to wash her, while her father Gioacchino looks at her with devotion; on the right a maid warms clothes by the fire in the fireplace, while on the top left other maidservants take care of the puerpera Sant'Anna. The scene is placed in a very large room, furnished with drapery, and which receives light from the small window at the top right. The work, created with good pictorial skills, is probably a preparatory sketch for a large canvas. The canvas has traces of restoration and relining. It is presented in a stylish frame.
Oil on canvas. The two paintings, certainly similar in terms of subject type and pictorial methods, offer two landscape glimpses typical of the 17th and 18th Nordic production. They feature large countryside spaces near watercourses and inhabited by farmhouses. There are figures of peasants and commoners focusing on their work. The blue mountains in the background, preceded by gentle hills and surrmounted by a blue sky with white clouds. They had been previously relined and restored and they both show color spots and opacity. They feature a contemporary frame.
A Sacrifice to Venus
A Sacrifice to Venus
Watercolor on paper. At the bottom left the name Giuseppe Cades, Although on the back, in addition to the attribution, the title "The oath of the Vestal Virgin". A girl is offering garlands of flowers to the statue of the goddess Venus, traditionally painted in a discrete way. She's holding the veil with one hand to cover the loins. The other hand covers the breast and the head with the hair gathered and adorned with flowers. Behind the girl, a young woman watches the scene, while a third peers from behind the column of the temple: therefore it seems to be a scene of supplication to the goddess, asking her to favor the love of two young men: according to both Greek and Roman tradition, the young before the wedding woman devoted themselves to this goddess, which was considered as the protector of marriage and conjugal fidelity. The work seems to be very close to the production of Giuseppe Cades, who in the 1780s and 1790s became one of the best known and appreciated personality in the Roman artistic world. He was a draftsman and an engraver too. The work is framed
Oil on canvas. The face of the Virgin reminds of the style of representation of Giovanni Battista Salvi, also known as Sassoferrato (1609-1685), whose style was often revived in 18th and 19th century. There is a cartouche on the back of the painting with the inventory number (N. 193) and the name of the collector Giuseppe Bertarelli (1804-1875), merchant and philanthropist from Milan, known for his important art donations to the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana. The painting is in its first canvas; needs restorations for small paint losses and two small holes. It is presented in a coeval frame.
Sant'Antonio Abate e San Paolo l'Eremita
Sant'Antonio Abate e San Paolo l'Eremita
Oil on canvas. It is a large Nordic landscape, dominated by rocky peaks on the left and a lake with a central island on the right; in the foreground some figures that tell the legend of San Paolo Eremita, on the left, and Sant'Antonio abate, on the right with a centaur. The Golden Legend of Jacopo da Varagine tells that Saint Anthony the Abbot visited Paul the hermit, who for forty years had lived in solitude fed by a crow who brought him bread every day. Sant'Antonio asked for news from a centaur, who also in this scene shows him the way to follow with his arm. The restored and relined work is presented in a period frame.
