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 This painting is an unpublished oil sketch for one of these, a much-admired canvas for the ceiling of the Salle du Petit Collège in the city’s town hall.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.

In the wake of the catastrophic plague of 1576, the legendary episcopate of Saint Charles Borromeo, and the resulting preoccupation with religious reform, the city’s culture was pervaded by profound skepticism and spiritual intensity. Involving Mannerist formulae and eccentric inventions, but also the progressive elements of Caravaggio’s chiaroscuro and then Rubens’s dynamism, the school’s painting tends toward the supernatural: the highly subjective, even the irrational, made real to the senses. Of the school’s three leading painters, Cerano was the most complex, visionary, and affecting. His mature style features, and derives its practically existential meaning from, exaggerated contrast between enveloping darkness and celestial light, general monochrome and localized color, thin handling and fluid impasti, pervasive melancholy and momentary ecstasy. In this late picture, related in theme and principal motif to a monumental canvas of Saint Dominic Defeating the Albigensians at Cremona, these contrasts make the representation of militant faith haunting and universal.

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.

With the catalyst of Pietro da Cortona’s High Baroque cycles, in a manner so fluent as to seem automatic, Piola generalized the lessons of Rubens and Van Dyck’s dynamic naturalism and translated them into the grand scale decoration of the native Genoese tradition. Few palaces in Genoa and scarcely a church in Liguria lack a work with the undulating rhythms, variegated modelling, and softly modulated light that are his trademarks. Piola’s works may not be sound in structure or deep in characterization, but they do convey a ease, even a joy, that are estimable and historically relevant. Although reduced to a small, horizontal format, this picture depends strictly on Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione’s great altarpiece of 1645 for San Luca in Genoa. The setting with a broken column symbolic of the Synagogue, the delightful incorporation of the bacchanalian shepherd and still-life motifs, and the fluid rhythm leading toward the radiant Child are virtual quotations. Soprani, the 17th-century biographer of the Genoese painters, writes that the young Piola was so taken with Castiglione that he learned to imitate his style. One of these imitations, “a very beautiful small panel of the Nativity,” was so successful that even experts equivocated about its authorship. Except for the material of its support, Soprani could have been referring to the present picture. Principally it is the slacker drawing, difficulty with space, as in the interval between the boys and the Virgin, and impatient execution in the background that identify it as a very early work by Piola. The picture is a landmark of the artist’s development and of Genoese painting on the threshold of its greatest achievments.

His style arose from his first training and lifelong collaboration in the family business of fine porcelain painting. Its larger context is the Genoese taste for Netherlandish painting that goes back to the fifteenth century. After a series of trips to Emilia, Guidobono shifted this already delicate style toward the soft contour, luminous color, and gentleness of Correggio. Later he would reconcile it with the large rhythms and efficient manufacture of Domenico Piola. This "Holy Family" is a beautiful compendium of Guidobono’s early style. Its matrix is surely Genoese, with the figural group suggested by Piola and the pure hues reminiscent of Baciccio. Instead, the grain of light, amplitude of the figures, and tenderness reveal the recent debt to Correggio. Most impressive, however, are the refined drawing and meticulous finish, practically those of a miniature painting.

Early in his development, the forms had been quite arbitrary and the result stylish but implausible. Steadily, his design was regularized according to classical models, his palette reached an unprecedented optical range, and his light became naturalistically descriptive. A small altarpiece probably for private devotion, this picture sets the Virgin and the archangel Gabriel in a handsome loggia, like that of an actual villa by Palladio, with whom the artist often collaborated. It is one of numerous late versions of the subject, with no sign of the workshop participation that had become frequent by then. The highlights have lost little of their energy, coursing across the surfaces and infusing the work with a metaphoric vitality. The figures, however, have been simplified in shape, their cadence slowed and their gesture subdued. And the palette is relatively restricted and uniform in value. In such paintings, the heroic splendor of the artist’s mature style yields to something less calculated and more reflective. The Suida-Manning Collection includes two other paintings from the same period, each a fragment from a larger composition. The composition depends upon a painting by Tintoretto.

He was without doubt the finest painter of the second generation of Baroque painting in Milan. In his paintings the willful deformation and troubling intensity of the school’s first generation have been subjected to a more disciplined sense of design and a more predictable language of expression, reflecting the lessons of recent Florentine painting as well as the emerging Bolognese academy. The resulting style is original in its staging but legible in its action and noble in its feeling. This is one of Crespi’s most important early pictures. The general composition and its compression of space into a single plane derive from a low-relief sculpture designed by Cerano for the façade of the church of San Paolo Converso in Milan. The intricate rhythms and the palette depend more on Giulio Cesare Procaccini, another major figure of the first generation who was Crespi’s principal inspiration if not actual teacher.

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.
