Chromolithograph, Carrara Marble Quarry, 1871

Lot 326: Chromolithograph, Carrara Marble Quarry, 1871

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

August 9, 2014, 12:00 PM EST

Fishkill, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $200 - $400

Description: Title: Carrara Marble QuarryArtist: Unknown, ItalianPublisher: Augustus Taber & Bros.Engraver: UnknownDescription: This lithograph depicts a caravan of oxen pulling carts loaded with Carrara marble blocks. Behind the people and oxen, mountains stretch in great ranges back to the horizon. On the verso are two pieces of paper. One denotes the history of the Carrara Marble while the other contains the background of the lithograph.Date: 1871Frame: Gilt woodFramed Size: 15.5x24.75"Work Size: 12.25x20.5"Weight: 4lbs 15.0ozCondition: Some foxing and black spotting marks this lithograph, but it is in otherwise excellent condition.History: Carrara marble has been used since the time of Ancient Rome. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the marble quarries were monitored by the Cybo and Malaspina families who ruled over Massa and Carrara. The family created the Office of Marble in 1564 to regulate the marble mining industry. The city of Massa, in particular, saw much of its plan redesigned (new roads, plazas, intersections, pavings) in order to make it worthy of an Italian country's capital. Following the extinction of the Cybo-Malaspina family, the state was ruled by the House of Austria and management of the mines rested with them. The Basilica of Massa is built entirely of Carrara marble and the old Ducal Palace of Massa was used to showcase the precious stone.At the end of the 19th century, Carrara became the cradle of anarchism in Italy, in particular among the quarry workers. According to a New York Times article of 1894, workers in the marble quarries were among the most neglected labourers in Italy. Many of them were ex-convicts or fugitives from justice. The work at the quarries was so tough and arduous that almost any aspirant worker with sufficient muscle and endurance was employed, regardless of their background.The quarry workers and stone carvers had radical beliefs that set them apart from others. Anarchism and general radicalism became part of the heritage of the stone carvers. Many violent revolutionists who had been expelled from Belgium and Switzerland went to Carrara in 1885 and founded the first anarchist group in Italy. In Carrara, the anarchist Galileo Palla remarked, "even the stones are anarchists." The quarry workers were the main protagonists of the Lunigiana revolt in January 1894.
