Oil on Canvas Mythological Subject Italy XVIII Century

Oil painting on canvas. Neapolitan school of the mid-18th century. The painting proposes the Greek myth of the sacrifice of Iphigenia, the daughter of King Agamemnon, leader of the Achaean expedition that was to leave for Troy. As the Greek fleet was unable to take to the sea due to unfavorable winds, the soothsayer Calcante predicted that, due to an offense the king had inflicted on the goddess Artemis, it now opposed their departure until the king did not. sacrificed his young daughter on the altar. Iphigenia courageously accepted the sacrifice and spontaneously ascended the altar, but at the last moment Artemis, pitying, exchanged her for a fawn and took the girl alive in Tauris, where she became a priestess of the goddess who had saved her. The great scene, set outside the Greek camp by the sea (the anchored ships in the background on the left, the tents on the right), sees in the center the goddess Artemis who exchanges the young and beautiful Iphigenia for the fawn, while the priest Calcante he is already holding the sacrificial knife; on the right the desperation of King Agamemnon and his wife Clytemnestra. The painting is in stylistic ways close to the production of Fedele Fischetti (1732-1792), the Neapolitan artist who devoted himself mainly to allegorical / mythological scenes, in particular in his first works from the 1860s. The work presented here was auctioned at Sotheby's in April 1998. Restored and relined, it is presented in a style frame.

The Vesuvius Eruption of 1822 Gouache on Paper XIX Century

The pink shades of the sky that are reflected on the smoking volcano and the blues of the sky and the sea create a typically romantic atmosphere. The scene is animated by numerous figures of commoners and fishing boats. The work is presented in a late 19th century frame.

Architectural Capriccio Oil on Canvas Italy XVIII Century

Oil painting on canvas. Neapolitan school of the eighteenth century. Of great impact and of good executive quality, the work refers in the ways to the works of Leonardo Coccorante (1680-1750), a Neapolitan artist known for his highly detailed large-scale landscapes characterized by classical architectural ruins, thus confirming the hypothesis of work in the Neapolitan area. The whole scene is occupied by imposing architectural structures, in Baroque style, among which various figures move. In particular, in the center in the foreground, some soldiers on horseback, in ancient Roman armor, lead a squad of infantry armed with spears and preceded by trumpeters; all are intent on admiring the city they are entering, while around them, citizens intent on their activities observe them. Restored and relined, the painting still has some color losses. It is presented in a stylish frame.
