Giovanni David Oil on Board of Sophonisba

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Signed David 1787 oil on panel of "Sophonisba" 27" x 16.5" oil on wood panel of Sophonisba's death with documentation from Jonathan Woodside photographs in Victorian home. Ex Jonathan F. Woodside Collection. Jonathan F. Woodside (1799-1845) was a member of the Democratic Party in Chillicothe, Ohio. Andrew Jackson appointed him US ambassador to Denmark. He was the second US ambassador to Denmark and had an influential relationship with the Danish king. He served as Ambassador from March 3, 1835 until June 29, 1841. After being recalled to the United States he moved back to Chillicothe, Ohio where he died at a young age in 1845. While residing in Copenhagen he assembled one of the most significant collections of art to be brought to the United States at the time. He became a member of the "Société Royale des Antiquaires du Nord". There are over 200 pieces of art manifested in this collection, including original receipts and shipping instructions that accompany the manifest. Several letters were written by the family over the next 150 years describing the collection. An early letter states: "Five distinct collections were made, the first from the Royal Gallery in Dresden. The second the Pitti Gallery in Florence, the third the Louvre in Paris...." One of Woodside's letters mentions paintings purchased from Noodt (Johann Noodt, a prominent art dealer & auctioneer in Hamburg at the time) & P. H. Heiniking of Altoona. Of this over 200 piece collection, a large portion was lost in 2 fires, at St. Xavier's Cathedral in Cincinnati and the "big fire" in Chicago. The remainder of art was passed from generation to generation in the family. Framed it is 32" x 21.75".
