Alcide Davide Campestrini

Glimpse of Nervi 1931

Oil on cardboard. Signed lower left. On the back there is the title with the date of creation and the declaration of authenticity of the son Ernesto. Alcide Davide Campestrini, a painter from Trentino but artistically trained at the Brera Academy in Milan, where he also taught, had a vast and varied production in which there are religious subjects, landscapes, portraits and genre scenes from the late nineteenth century, some military scenes of intent patriotic of the early twentieth century, as well as decorations of villas and palaces (especially in Trentino), on which the artist worked after the war. He has been defined as a "wanderer of painting", who crossed different styles and genres, declining painting and drawing between Neo-Impressionism and timid hints of "abstract" figuration, with also forays into realism and social denunciation. The small glimpse is presented in a stylish frame.

ARTNOV0001589

Life in the fields

art of ethiopia, 1935 ca.

The canvas represents daily life and its flow through work in the fields, a central element of survival. In the upper row we see the first plowing, which is followed, after the arrival of the rains, by a second preparation of the soil. In the second row, we see the seeds extracted from the granaries; they are carried in sacks and sown, with subsequent hoe covering; the row closes with the sprouting of seedlings. In the third row the farmer watches over and protects the sown from wild animals; follows the scene of the harvest and the threshing, which ends with the putting away of the fruit of the work in the granary. In the fourth row a woman prepares the flour, and bakes a focaccia; then she washes her husband's feet and he reciprocates by offering her the first bite; the scene ends with the whole family in bed. It is part of a group of seven works, which arrived in Italy at the end of the 1930s; they were purchased directly on site, as we have reconstructed from the correspondence and family photos, by the lawyer xxx, grandfather of the owners, who was sent as the legal representative of an Italian production company in 1935 in Ethiopia, and from there he was expelled in 1938 by General Graziani because he was considered anti-fascist. The canvases remained in the family collection, in the family palace, and are now re-proposed in all their expressive power. Ethiopia has a very particular history: located between Africa and Asia, and between the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean, it was a crossroads and meeting point of different cultures, also stimulated by the constant and intense trade flows. Five centuries BC the Aksum dynasty was established; under this reign, in the fourth century after Christ, Christianity was established as the state religion, in its Coptic Orthodox version. The medieval sacred texts also speak, however, of a direct relationship with one of the ten Jewish tribes, who took refuge in Ethiopia, from which the royal lineage was derived through the queen of Sheba. And in fact in Ethiopia the Falascià lineage still lives today, black Jews whose first historical records date back to 600 AD. Ethiopia was therefore a Jewish-Christian bulwark, with African influences, but to be considered almost the southern edge of Mediterranean culture.

Ras Tafari Maconnen, crowned emperor Hailč Selassič I, is held in the womb from the virgin mary and is blessed from on high by the Holy Spirit. It is part of a group of seven works, which arrived in Italy at the end of the '30s; were purchased directly on-site , as we have reconstructed from the correspondence and from the family photos, from the lawyer xxx, grandfather of the owners, who was sent as a legal representative of a company of Italian production in 1935 in Ethiopia, and from here it was driven out in 1938 by general Graziani, because it was considered anti-fascist. The paintings remained in the family collection, in the palace of the family, and are now presented in all their expressive force. Ethiopia has a very particular history: it is situated between Africa and Asia, and between the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean, was a crossroads and meeting point of different cultures, stimulated also by the constant and intense trade flows.

And in fact, in Ethiopia still live today), the line of the Falascià, black jews, whose first historical mention dates back to 600 after Christ. Ethiopia was then a bastion of jewish-christian, with african influences, but to be considered almost the southern edge of the mediterranean culture.

Domenico De Bernardi

Landscape

Oil on the table. Signed and dated lower left. On the back this stamp "Domenico De Bernardi -Besozzo", for authentication. De Bernardi's painting is part of the Lombard landscape tradition of the nineteenth-twentieth century. He always lived in Besozzo, his hometown in the province of Varese, but he traveled a lot, in Italy and outside of Italy, collecting impressions and searching, to relive them in his work, new landscapes; in particular he picked up new suggestions from a trip to Libya in the thirties, from which he returned with a more lively and Mediterranean palette. Landscape was the genre he preferred, but he was also often attracted, with equally significant results, to 'still life'. The small landscape presented here is a glimpse of hills on which higher peaks stand out in the background, perhaps precisely the pre-alpine areas of the artist's origin; a small village fills the center of the scene, in which the widespread cultivation fences stand out in particular. The work is presented in a contemporary frame.

Ugo Celada of Virgil

Female portrait

ARARNO0120459

Ugo Celada of Virgil

Female portrait

Oil on plywood. Signed lower left. Born in 1895 in Virgilio, in the province of Mantua, - hence the addition to the surname of the toponym probably in homage to the Latin poet-, Ugo Celada first studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Mantua and then moved on to the Brera Academy in Milan as a pupil of Cesare Tallone. After the interlude of the First World War, in which he participated as a volunteer, he devoted himself completely to pictorial research, also staying in Paris to study and deepen the new artistic trends. Already in 1920 he participated in the Venice Biennale, immediately revealing his tendency to a lenticular realism, played on the transparency of the bright and clean color, and on the meticulous search for precision. Still lifes, nudes, portraits, trompe l'oeil, were inserted by him in almost surreal contexts but very close to reality, in enigmatic atmospheres defined with a clear and precise design. At the beginning of the 1930s Celada definitively broke with the twentieth century current and indeed founded an anti-twentieth century Manifesto in Mantua, in which she attacked the monopoly of the regime culture, and rather approached Magic Realism and the New Objectivity of the contemporary Sciltian. Since then he avoided any exposure (he was one of the few successful artists not to be compromised with the fascist culture and its celebration), living thanks to the orders of the Milanese bourgeoisie who adored him, and dedicating himself exclusively to a pictorial research based on the objective description of the reality, resulting in the founding of the Objectivist Painters movement in 1959. He continued to paint until old age, dying in Varese at the age of one hundred. Celada's painting is capable of blocking reality in time and space, in a way that appears detached, analytical and scientifically exact (colors, reflections, transparencies), but communicating - as opposed to a total unreality - a great narrative pathos. The portrait of a lady presented here reveals Celada's ability to portray the person with an almost photographic realism, albeit surrounding her with an aura of surrealism, thanks to the monochromatic background devoid of any reference to the surrounding reality. The work is presented in a frame.

Oil painting on canvas. Signed lower right. Trained at the Brera Academy as a pupil of Cesare Tallone and Vespasiano Bignami, Attilio Andreoli preferred historical and biblical subjects in his production, with which he built his fame, but also made several portraits. His technique was peculiar: he used only the spatula, to spread very thick and enameled color mixtures, which he then finished with small and precise touches of the steel blade. The portrait of a young woman presented here, in which the technique is clearly evident, is presented in a mid-20th century frame.
