The Museum possesses a fine painting of the kind by his son and follower, as well as nine drawings and some three dozen etchings by Giovanni Benedetto himself. Training in Antwerp, then active in Rome, Roos settled in Genoa in 1616. A great success, his work helped established the genre of animal painting and inspired Castiglione’s specific approach, weaving familiar, domesticated animals into a procession across the foreground of a deep landscape. Only recently identified, Roos’s drawings are striking in their complex atmosphere and broad touch. They evidently also influenced the formation of Castiglione’s draftsmanship. They are, however, quite rare: there is only one other in an American public collection, and the Suida-Manning Collection had none.

The technique, especially employed in such a loose and summary manner, derives from the frequent preparatory studies of the great Flemish painters, Rubens and Van Dyck, who were active at Genoa early in the century. And the subject responds to the Genoese taste for animal paintings that was acquired from 17th-century Holland. Castiglione rarely essayed animals as such, but many of his habitual historical subjects are pretexts for featuring them. The constancy of his interest and the continuity in these subjects are made clear by the comparison of this study with his large etching from more than a decade later.
