He was first trained in Milan with the idiosyncratic Paolo Pagani, but his style depends more on the sensuous and decorative aspects of Sebastiano Ricci. Pellegrini’s drawing is broad and soft, his palette warm and pastel, and his paint handling dense and fluid. Defying gravity, bordering on the caricatural, this painterly virtuosity was a tremendous success across Europe, with the artist called to execute significant fresco cycles and numerous canvases in England, France, and Germany. During a year-long sojourn in Antwerp, Pellegrini carried out three major decorative projects. This painting is an unpublished oil sketch for one of these, a much-admired canvas for the ceiling of the Salle du Petit Collège in the city’s town hall. Appropriate to that setting, it represents the figures of Justice and Prudence crushing two male figures identifiable as Avarice and Deceit. Phosphorescent in color, practically sculpted in paint, this sketch dramatizes the material properties for which Pellegrini was so highly regarded. These properties are conspicuous in the wake of a recent cleaning and relining of the canvas. The Suida-Manning Collection includes two other paintings by Pellegrini: a comparably rich, half-length figure of Bellona from around 1713–1714, and a more summary Venus and Cupid, which may have come from a decorative ensemble.

His first training was with Sebastiano Ricci, but completely determining of his style was his long collaboration with the elder Tiepolo. Although his juvenile works have often been confused with the master’s, Zugno’s mature style is readily distinguished by its more delicate description, soft contour, and sweet color. Not just due to temper, this gentle and elegant manner probably reflects some knowledge of the school of Watteau. This lovely picture renders a young couple playing cards under the supervision of an older couple – her guardians? – and with the service of two pages. In such a context, the game serves as a metaphor for courtship. Formally, the picture depends upon Tiepolo’s style of the late 1740s and 1750s. In composition it may be compared with Tiepolo’s Banquet of Cleopatra in Moscow (1747), while in figural rhythm and lightening palette it recalls his frescoes of Henry III in Paris (1750) and canvases of Rinaldo and Armida in Chicago (1755). At just this time, 1754, Zugno was executing a History of Cleopatra in fresco for the Villa Soderini at Nervesa (practically destroyed in the Second World War), and would have been consulting the master’s recent history paintings closely.

Determined by training and a long collaboration with Giovanni Battista Pittoni in Venice, his style combines the fluid composition and extreme grace of the Central European Baroque with the vibrant palette of Sebastiano Ricci and his followers. Called to Dresden in 1738, he would spend the rest of his short career at the court of Augustus III. While capable of grand decoration and an occasional altarpiece, his specialty was cabinet pictures with the loose handling of oil sketches. This delightful picture is an important example of Kern’s earliest style. Its color and handling are so purely Venetian, the slightly angular construction and pointing types so indebted to Pittoni, that it could be confused with his work. The drawing, however, is slacker, the impasto gratuitous, and the sentiment a bit saccharine. An early biographer of Bohemian painters, Johann Quirin Jahn, mentions at least six paintings by Kern in the residences of the Counts Czernin at Prague. Apparently forming a series, four represent scenes from the youth of Christ. The Suida-Manning picture has been recently identified as one of those pictures and dated 1730, the date that appears on another picture from the series in a private collection in Bologna.

Defying gravity, bordering on the caricatural, this painterly virtuosity was a tremendous success across Europe, with Pellegrini called to execute significant fresco cycles and numerous canvases in England, France, and Germany. Bellona is a typically glorious if basically hollow exercise in this purest kind of painting. Already freed from Ricci’s more differentiated handling, but not yet fully dissolved in its drawing and atmospheric in its color, the picture probably dates from the time of Pellegrini’s collaboration with Antonio Bellucci, a Venetian of comparable inclination but lesser brilliance, on a decorative ensemble for the Schloss Bensberg, near Cologne.

It is, however, opposite in temper and direction. Trained in Bologna, Piazzetta brought back to Venice a naturalism based upon systematic drawing, featuring an intense chiaroscuro, and concerned with dramatic expression. He then reconciling this approach with the mobile light and personalized brushwork of his native tradition, while resisting its bright color and decorative values. He would never undertake the monumental decorative projects that were the staple of the age, and unlike his compatriots who mastered that genre, he never worked outside of Venice. But his religious works possess an optical intensity and a visionary power that are equal to the greatest works the early Baroque. Two of Piazzetta’s special researches are reflected in this delightful picture. First, it relates in subject to the pastoral and genre scenes, which, when essayed on a large scale, possess a startling theatricality and an ambiguous psychology (opposite to that of Ceruti’s Peasant Girl, to the right). Second, the picture relates to Piazzetta’s lifelong study of plastic form and personality through “character studies”—black chalk drawings of bust-length types as well as individuals. (The Suida-Manning Collection includes one of the earliest and finest of these studies, among three drawings by the artist.) On this modest scale, with an unencumbered pursuit of momentary response, the picture approaches the vivaciousness and charm of a contemporary like Fragonard.

Generally within the classical tradition of Carracci and Domenichino, he built upon the more moody and textured interpretations of it in the second half of the 17th century, while bringing to bear the luminosity of his native tradition. The result was a new style of pure landscape painting, paralleling and complementing the school’s celebrated view paintings. Marco worked in the major centers of North Italy as well as Venice, twice visited London, and affected the course of the genre across Europe. His work was an important source of picturesque landscape painting in the later 18th century. With its high viewpoint, articulated structure, heavier palette, and lively touch, this landscape recalls earlier, more subjective Baroque landscapes, like those of Salvator Rosa and Alessandro Magnasco. The particularly animated drawing and loaded brushwork in the figures have led to the probable suggestion that they were painted by Sebastiano.

Its strong chiaroscuro, pronounced plasticity, palette dominated by an fiery red, as well as an earnest psychology, still echo his earliest style and the formative influence of Piazzetta (compare the picture to the right). These characteristics are, however, tempered, with the contrasts no longer stark, the plasticity no longer caricatural, the palette more balanced, and the expression transformed from the histrionic toward a lofty ethos and in this case subdued pathos. Most significantly, the density and busyness of earlier compositions has given way to simpler organization and subtler rhythms. Even on this small scale the development is evident in an interweaving of shapes and interpenetration of volumes. Especially striking and appropriately expressive is the combination of the Child rendered from low viewpoint, therefore practically convex and heroic, and the Virgin oppositely, therefore concave and sorrowful. In this tempering of Tiepolo’s first manner and growing sophistication, this picture is properly related to the grand series of canvases of Roman history for the Ca’ Dolfin in Venice (circa 1726-28).", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, The Suida-Manning Collection, 2017", "Copyright_Type" : "public domain", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "painting", "Creation_Place2" : "Italian", "Department" : "European Paintings", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "Requires more research and strong argument to keep Condition issues, pigment may have shifted, creating color imbalance; possibly cut from larger canvas; could this be saved by a conservator?

He enjoyed the patronage of the royal families and aristocrats in England and France, who frequently had their painted likenesses reproduced as engravings in order to distribute them widely. Portraiture was generally reserved for the nobility as a means to display an individual’s lineage, social status, personal virtues, and fame. With the rise of the middle class in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, however, the bourgeoisie increasingly commissioned portraits of themselves, which is also reflected in Largillière’s oeuvre. The sitter’s casual garb and amiable attitude in this portrait may indicate his friendly relationship with the painter. More specifically, the elegantly unkempt dress, similar to that in Largillière’s portrait of the sculptor Nicolas Coustou painted around 1713, which is now in the collection of the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, may suggest that the sitter is also an artist.
