Francesco ZUCCARELLI (Pitigliano 1702 - Florence... - Lot 26 - Saint Paul auction
Francesco ZUCCARELLI (Pitigliano 1702 - Florence 1788) Country landscape at a river with washerwomen, shepherd and his animals. Oil on canvas (Old lining on a thin canvas; old varnish soiled). On the stretcher, top left, an old inscription in black ink Zuccherelli, and on the right, a date, perhaps of sale 18(5)1 and a brief inscription H. 58.5 - L. 72.5 cm Beautiful Regency-style frame in wood and gilded stucco, probably English, with openwork acanthus leaves in the corners, foliate scrolls and florets (accident top right, bottom left). On the reverse, label of the London frame and engraving dealer From CHAs. G. SMITHERS / Picture Frame Marker, Print Seller, Carver, Gilder, 96 Leadenhall Street London. Note: Alongside the larger country landscapes by Francesco Zuccarelli in the Accademia Museum in Venice, compare the one reproduced here with the landscape with waterfall and shepherd (45 x 62 cm) in the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo (Cf. Francesco Rossi, Catalogo dei dipinti. 700 / Paesaggisti e Vedustisti, pp. 373 & 374, no. 1071; repr. p. 379 - Bergamo 1979). As for Francesco Zuccarelli's English taste for landscapes, as evidenced by the label on the reverse of the frame, it is possible to find confirmation of this in the thirty paintings by the painter preserved in the royal collections, mainly at Windsor Castle. At the end of his two stays in England, Francesco Zuccarelli was to become a founding member of the Royal Academy (Cf. Michael Levey, Pictures in the Royal Collection. The Later Italian Pictures. Zuccarelli, cat. nos. 677 - 706, pp.105-108, repr.191-200. The Phaidon Press. London 1964).
