No Reserve 17th C Italian Old Master Drawing D. Piola

Recently acquired from an important English private collection:

Museum-QualityItalian Old Master Drawing:

Domenico Piola (1627 – 1703)

Design for a Ceiling Decoration: Bishop Saint supported by Angels among Clouds

Pen and brown ink, grey wash, squared in graphite,182 x 263 mm (7.2 x10.4 inch)

Provenance
Private collection, United Kingdom

~

Domenico Piola was one of the major decorator artists working in Genoa in the second half of the 17th century. He developed his popular and highly influential fresco style from such Genoese predecessors as Castiglione and Valerio Castello. Piola and his son-in-law, Gregorio de Ferrari, created a lyrical yet bold decorative idiom that prvided Genoa with a Late Baroque style that rivalled the activity of contemporary Rome.

The present drawing is squared which made it possible for the design to be transmitted to larger scale. The comoposition suggests that it would have been intended for the decoration of a ceiling, probably for one of Genoa's many wonderful churches. The effect is typical of the Italian Baroque preference for trompe l'oeil effects, with the Bishop saint supported on clouds by angels.

Wonderful opportunity to acquire a beautiful Italian drawing.
