His style thoroughly reconciles the school’s residual Mannerism with its naturalism of Netherlandish cast. At the same time, spending much of the 1630s and 1640s in Rome, he assimilated Nicolas Poussin and Pietro Testa’s highly intellectual and idealized Baroque. Castiglione’s curiosity and openness are confirmed by his ceaseless exploration of the graphic arts and by his late activity across northern Italy. More than any other figure, he transcended conventional Baroque categories and predicted the dominant tendencies of eighteenth-century style. Combining noble theme with a pretext for genre, the journeys of the patriarchs in the Book of Genesis were a constant subject in Castiglione’s art. With the added appeal of a menagerie, Noah and the loading of the Ark was a particular favorite. The many versions include an early oil on paper in the Suida-Manning Collection. Here, the procession is organized with the simple structure and slow cadence of an ancient relief, but brought to life by the busy hand, textured light, and even bawdy accent of Rembrandt’s early etchings. Castiglione’s etchings are the finest of the period in Italy. This is perhaps his most pictorial and coherent. Characterized by great clarity, a silvery tone, and dense polishing scratches, this is an especially early impression. The museum possesses forty etchings by the artist.

Brush with oil paint on paper was his preferred graphic technique after around 1650. Although the motif recalls several altarpieces, and its loaded pigment and close brushwork resemble those of a preparatory bozzetto, this study was apparently conceived as an autonomous work. Such studies were the most focused and sustained of Castiglione’s innumerable variations upon motifs established in his paintings. This sketch is also an outstanding example of the complex sources of Castiglione’s mature style. The inspiration of Rubens and Anthony van Dyck is still palpable in the technique, rhythmic articulation, and modulated light. The lyrical touch recalls another early influence, the Genoese works of Giulio Cesare Procaccini. These accommodate, however, later Roman examples: the luminous color of Giovanni Lanfranco and the extravagant form of Gianlorenzo Bernini. Specifically, the haughty Virgin and convulsed angel paraphrase the composition and invert the relationship in the sculptor’s famous Saint Theresa in Ecstasy. Not only was Castiglione in contact with Bernini during his second Roman sojourn, but the Cornaro Chapel was the sculptor’s principal project at the time.
