Poppies in Vase 1948

Oil on canvas. Signed and dated lower left. Composition of poppies in vase, with ceramic Madonnina on the rear wall. Noel Quintavalle (known under the pseudonym Noelqui), a native of Ferrara but raised and artistically trained in Milan, was a multifaceted artist. Graduated in architecture, he was self-taught in the arts, but after the great war in which he actively participated, he quickly distinguished himself and exhibited in numerous national and international exhibitions; in the meantime he also carried out literary activities by publishing various volumes (satire, fairy tales, short memories of the war) and also experimented with sculpture and xylography. His pictorial production, which began as a pointillist, was then influenced by the synthesis of modern painting. The subjects most dear to him were the portrait (with a preference for particular female figures, such as dancers) and the landscape. His production of floral subjects dates back to the 1940s, linked to the period in which he recovered the need for interiority, approaching the aesthetic concepts of the art of the "twentieth century". The work is presented in a contemporary frame.

Marmittone gets married 1950

Oil on canvas. Signed and dated lower left. On the back there is a cartouche of the Ranzini Gallery in Milan, relating to the artist's personal exhibition held in November 1950, which indicates the title of the work. It is an original and unusual subject by the Ligurian painter, who is inspired by a comic published starting from 1928 in the Corriere dei Piccoli, which tells the adventures of the simple soldier Marmittone, a type not too bright but of good will who, due to gaffes or simply out of sheer misfortune, ends up in jail at the end of each adventure. Noelqui's work is of a fantastic kind: the two protagonists of the scene, Marmittone and his bride, are flanked by characters with the appearance of animals, the context is represented with geometrically defined houses with simple outlines, the colors are lively and cheerful. It seems almost the illustration of a children's story, which refers to the activity of writer, also of fairy tales and short stories, in which Noelqui ventured.
