Italian-florentine School 16thc - Madonna And Child - Attr. Francesco Salviati For Sale
From an Italian collection, is this early 16th century masterdrawing.The drawing, executed in pen, ink and grey wash on blue laid paper, depicts a religious scene : the Madonna and child, accompanied by an angel. The Madonna is depicted in a seated position, under a canopy. The Child is holding an apple, while the cherub pushes the canopy slightly aside. The drawing must have been a study for a larger scale project.Authorship : the drawing is attributed to Francesco Salviati (old note on the backside).FRANCESCO SALVIATI (1510 Florence - 1565 Rome) : Francesco de' Rossi was the son of a weaver in Florence. At an early
age, he chose to pursue his interest in drawing and painting instead of
following his father's profession. His first major commission came at
age twenty-one from Cardinal Giovanni Salviati, whose name he adopted.
At age fourteen, Francesco Salviati trained with one of the leading
sculptors in Florence. Five years later, he entered the workshop of his
friend Giorgio Vasari, a painter and biographer of artists.
Salviati specialized in elaborate paintings that were typically Mannerist
in their depiction of closely packed figures in spirited but physically
impossible poses. This style earned him great fame even in France,
where he worked for a year. Salviati also made designs for tapestries.
His portraits remain notable for their direct characterization of the
sitter and richness of color.Size : 18,6x16,7cm.Backside : N°.215 (an old inventorynumber).Condition : good. Leftside mid damaged. Some minor damage in topzone, mid horizontal and bottomzone.
