The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian is a masterpiece of Cambiaso’s early maturity. His forms, although still in the style of Michelangelo, have been disciplined, smoothed into more regular shapes, and given more elegant proportion than in his earlier work. Around this time he began to employ lines whose varied weight, length, and velocity allowed more elliptic description and flexible structure. This drawing also demonstrates a new level of spatial mastery. While the archers define a horizontal concavity, the saint and angels create a vertical convexity. These intersecting curves involve the entire composition in an energizing tension and virtuoso resolution. Finally, the drawing conveys a consonantly refined and lyrical expression of the saint’s pathos, conspicuous in his face yet woven through the fabric of the entire work. The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian is no less sophisticated in function. Cambiaso’s earlier drawings still pertain to the graphic system of the early sixteenth century. This later example, rendered at high speed, emulates the summary notation of an advanced compositional study within that system. However, it was not preparatory, but conceived and executed as an autonomous work of art, as confirmed by its remarkable size. Such drawings enjoyed a tremendous success with the ambitious patrons of the artist’s paintings. The resulting production established the very idea of an independent market for drawings in which graphic character and individual personality are the commodities. The Blanton’s seven paintings and over a dozen autograph drawings by Cambiaso represent the most significant holdings of his work outside Genoa.

At a far frontier of Mannerism, pushing the research of ideal form beyond conventional pictorial standards, Cambiaso was already inclined toward the kind of "styleless style" implied by the Council’s imperatives. In his mature religious works, he perfected a mode that is diagrammatic in subject and practically shorn of material appeal, but equipped with unprecedentedly naturalistic incidents, specifically the action of light, that relieve the abstractness and cue a sentimental response.

The activity of Luca Cambiaso represents the foundation of a native and highly progressive school of painting. First trained locally by his father, Cambiaso then went to Rome, where he assimilated the current style based on Michelangelo’s painting. Returning to Genoa, he cultivated the geometry and ideality that underpin that style. This led to the development of what is perhaps the most abstract and intellectualized style of the entire Italian Renaissance. Its characteristics are an extreme simplification of form, opacity of expression, broadness of execution, and modality according to the subject and function of the painting. Rendering the Jewish queen’s courageous intercession with the Persian king to save her people, this painting is an outstanding example of Cambiaso’s most conventionally beautiful mode. Expressing the powerful conjunction of physical allure and moral force, the subject was a favorite from around this time through the 18th century. Typical of Cambiaso’s art, the composition is spare, schematic, and still. True to this mode, and appropriate to the subject, the description is relatively generous, the touch, especially in the ornament, delicate, and the tenor gentle.

Pontius Pilate presents Jesus, bound and crowned with thorns, before a crowd demanding his crucifixion. Here the tumult of the scene is replaced with a quiet, almost meditative atmosphere. The simplicity of narrative closely reflects the religious and artistic environment in which Luca Cambiaso worked. Faced with the rise of Protestantism in the sixteenth century, the Catholic Church carried out a series of reforms, now referred to as the Counter-Reformation. During this period, the Catholic Church encouraged artists to make decorous images with minimal distractions, like this painting, to communicate the Catholic doctrines effectively. Through its simplified composition, Cambiaso’s "Ecce Homo" invites the viewer to focus on the suffering of Jesus.

The Council and its subsequent interpreters insisted that religious painting should be scripturally accurate, clearly legible, and stirring of devout feeling in the viewer. After a long collaboration with the brilliant architect Bergamasco and an increasing manufacture during the 1560s, Luca Cambiaso had already developed a more calculated, spare, and efficacious style. For the later religious works, consonant with, if not explicitly serving, the new ideals, he perfected a mode that is diagrammatic in subject and radically pared of obvious material appeal. To relieve the abstractness, to cue a sentimental response, and certainly also to satisfy his own instincts as a painter, Cambiaso equipped this mode with passages of stunning natural observation and tender human interaction. The most original and striking of these paintings are the nocturnes, concentrated in the early 1570s. This picture is the grandest of three examples in the Suida-Manning Collection. While the general conception and function of these nocturnes point toward Cambiaso’s last activity, as official painter to the Spanish king Philip II at the monastery of the Escorial, their coherent light and authentic feeling anticipate the tenebrism of the early Baroque, from Caravaggio to Georges de La Tour and Gerrit van Honthorst.", "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" : "Wonderful, lovely, should be upstairs (FC:jb 5/13/15)", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2017.967.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2017.967.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2017.967.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2017.967.tif", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2581", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 16497, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/16497", "Disp_Access_No" : "2017.965", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "circa 1568", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1563", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1573", "Disp_Title" : "God the Father and Putti", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "God the Father and Putti", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Luca Cambiaso", "Sort_Artist" : "Cambiaso, Luca", "Disp_Dimen" : "23.1 cm x 33.8 cm (9 1/8 in. x 13 5/16 in.)", "Disp_Height" : "23.1 cm", "Disp_Width" : "33.8 cm", "Dimen_Extent" : "Sheet", "Medium" : "Pen and brown ink with brush and brown wash on cream paper, laid down", "Support" : "", "Disp_Medium" : "Pen and brown ink with brush and brown wash on cream paper, laid down", "Info_Page_Comm" : "Related motifs of God-the-Father amidst putti appear in the upper reaches of several altarpieces executed during the 1560s.

The monumentality of the Virgin, the thrust of the Child, and the bold plasticity of every form suggest study with the followers of Michelangelo in mid-century Rome. At the same time, this powerful description has been circumscribed by Cambiaso’s exaggerated regularity of shapes, as in the figures’ heads, and embellished with the unnatural grace of their extremities, which recalls the works that Raphael’s follower Perino del Vaga had created for Genoa. Throughout, from the luscious frosting of the Virgin’s white sleeve to the exquisite filaments about the eyes, there is evident delight in the sheer matter of paint and possibilities of the brush. This virtuosity is conspicuous because of the work’s execution on panel and the excellent preservation of most of its surface. The painting demonstrates the young artist’s startling ambition, explains his first synthesis of influences, and predicts his place among the major figures of Mannerism. The Suida-Manning Collection includes six paintings and at least two dozen autograph drawings by Cambiaso. These represent the most significant holdings of his work outside Genoa. Preceding the earliest Suida-Manning picture by some fifteen years, and the only example on panel, this painting is the cornerstone of the entire group.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Purchase as a gift of the Cain Foundation in honor of Charmaine Hooper Denius, 2005", "Copyright_Type" : "public domain", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "painting", "Creation_Place2" : "Italian", "Department" : "European Paintings", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "Ranking is provisional (FC:jb 4/2/15) Important moment in early Cambiaso (FC:jb 4/2/15)", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2005.151.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2005.151.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2005.151.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2005.151.tif", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "3061", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2005.151_frame.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2005.151_frame.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2005.151_frame.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2005.151_frame.tif", "IsPrimary" : "0", "_SurrogateID" : "3063", "Image_Type" : "Transparency", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
