The grips are numbered to the gun and all appropriate parts are correctly numbered to the revolver. The revolver also bears extensive British proof marks.

Estimated Price: $50 - $100

Description: Medium: EtchingSupport: PaperArtist: PiranesiArtist Dates: 1720-1778Country of Origin: ItalyTitle & Description: "Anfiteatro Flavio detto il Colosseo in Roma"This ink etching depicts the Coliseum in Rome, from the perspective of an observer looking head on from some distance away. A pair of figures can be seen near the center of the image, mostly featureless.Signature: Bottom LeftDate of Work: Mid 18th C.Frame: Gilt WoodWork Size: 5.25x10.25"Frame Size: 20.25x25.0"Weight: 6.0lbsProvenance: Putnam County EstateCondition: This etching is in excellent condition, with some smudging of the ink used to create it as well as minor foxing.Artist Biography: Piranesi was born in Mogliano Veneto, near Treviso, then part of the Republic of Venice. His brother Andrea introduced him to Latin and the ancient civilization, and later he studied as an architect under his uncle, Matteo Lucchesi, who was Magistrato delle Acque, a Venetian engineer who specialized in excavation.From 1740 he was in Rome with Marco Foscarini, the Venetian envoy to the Vatican. He resided in the Palazzo Venezia and studied under Giuseppe Vasi, who introduced him to the art of etching and engraving. After his studies with Vasi, he collaborated with pupils of the French Academy in Rome to produce a series of vedute (views) of the city; his first work was Prima parte di Architettura e Prospettive (1743), followed in 1745 by Varie Vedute di Roma Antica e Moderna.The Pyramid of Cestius, etchingFrom 1743 to 1747 he sojourned mainly in Venice where, according to some sources, he often visited Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. He then returned to Rome, where he opened a workshop in Via del Corso. In 1748-1774 he created a long series of vedute of the city which established his fame. In the meantime Piranesi devoted himself to the measurement of many of the ancient edifices: this led to the publication of Le Antichità Romane de' tempo della prima Repubblica e dei primi imperatori ("Roman Antiquities of the Time of the First Republic and the First Emperors"). In 1761 he became a member of the Accademia di San Luca and opened a printing facility of his own. In 1762 the Campo Marzio dell'antica Roma collection of engravings was printed.The following year he was commissioned by Pope Clement XIII to restore the choir of San Giovanni in Laterano, but the work did not materialize. In 1764 Piranesi started his sole architectural works of importance, the restoration of the church of Santa Maria del Priorato in the Villa of the Knights of Malta in Rome, where he was buried in a tomb designed by Giuseppi Angelini.In 1767 he was created a knight of the Golden Spur, which enabled him henceforth to sign himself "Cav[aliere] Piranesi". In 1769 his publication of a series of ingenious and sometimes bizarre designs for chimneypieces, as well as an original range of furniture pieces, established his place as a versatile and resourceful designer. In 1776 he created his famous Piranesi Vase, his best known work as a 'restorer' of ancient sculpture. In 1777-78 Piranesi published Avanzi degli Edifici di Pesto, (Remains of the Edifices of Paestum) a collection of views of Paestum.He died in Rome in 1778 after a long illness and was buried in the Church of Santa Maria del Priorato, on the Aventine hill in Rome.

Tommaso Masaccio - Madonna Casini

Lot 509: Tommaso Masaccio - Madonna Casini

by ArtVipCharity.com

August 9, 2014, 12:00 PM PST

Santa Fe, NM, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $900

Description: Tommaso Masaccio - Madonna Casini on canvas 16x28 inches

Condition Report: This is new in mint condition. Tommaso Masaccio - Madonna Casini Limited edition on archival canvas. 16x28. Masaccio December 1401-1428), born Tommaso di Ser Giovanni di Simone, was the first great painter of the Quattrocento period of the Italian Renaissance. According to Vasari, Masaccio was the best painter of his generation because of his skill at recreating lifelike figures and movements as well as a convincing sense of three-dimensionality.Masaccio died at twenty-six and little is known about the exact circumstances of his death.The name Masaccio is a humorous version of Maso (short for Tommaso), meaning clumsy or messy Tom. The name may have been created to distinguish him from his principal collaborator, also called Maso, who came to be known as Masolino (little/delicate Tom).Despite his brief career, he had a profound influence on other artists. He was one of the first to use linear perspective in his painting, employing techniques such as vanishing point in art for the first time. He also moved away from the International Gothic style and elaborate ornamentation of artists like Gentile da Fabriano to a more naturalistic mode that employed perspective and chiaroscuro for greater realism.

Károly Lotz, Oil Sketch 'Niobe with her Children', c. 1884

Lot 32: Károly Lotz, Oil Sketch 'Niobe with her Children', c. 1884

by Auctionata

August 28, 2014, 6:00 PM CET

Berlin, Germany

Estimated Price: €3,600 - €4,500

Description: Oil on paper, mounted on canvasPresumably Hungary, 1884Károly Lotz (1833-1904) - German-Hungarian history and genre painterMythological scene depicting the killing of Niobe's sons and daughtersStudy on the ceiling fresco in the auditorium of the Opera House in Budapest (1884)Authentication certificate by Wilhelm von Bode from 1927The actually highest auction record for an oil painting by Károly Lotz is over 132,000 eurosOverall dimensions, framed: 57 x 88 cmProvenance: Austrian private collectionThis oil painting by Károly Lotz (1833-1904) shows a mythological scene from Ovid's Metamorphoses. It is a study for a fresco in the auditorium of the Opera House in Budapest (1884). The depiction illustrates the dramatic killing of Niobe's sons and daughters. The wife of the Theban king Amphion was so proud of her many children (seven sons and seven daughters ) that she dared to surpass the Titan Leto, whereupon Leto asked her son and daughter, Apollo and Arthemis , to kill the sons and daughters of Niobe with bow and arrow in one day. In the opera literature, the subject of Niobe is often quoted, which testifies to the connection of the present study. In his mythological topics, Károly Lotz oriented to the masters of the Venetian Baroque, such as Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Thus, it is primarily the dramatizing baroque language that Lotz overtook in his works. This is a very nice painting, which, in the composition of color and physical presence, makes the drama of the story of Niobe quite vivid.The painting comes with a typewritten letter dating to 1927 and signed by Wilhelm von Bode, in which he confirms, that the painting is undeniably an original work of Karl Lotz. The oil sketch executed on paper and mounted on canvas shows some signs of age and wear. The paint surface has some cracks, which were fixed and partly retouched. On the right side, there is a small paint flaking. The gilt wood frame is overall in good condition, showing slight wear marks. The overall dimensions with frame are 57 x 88 cm, the stretcher frame measuring 47 x 78 cm.Károly Lotz (1833-1904)Károly Lotz (also Karl Anton Paul Lotz) was an important historical and genre painter. Born in 1833 in Germany, he moved to Budapest in 1837. His artistic career began as a student of court conductor Destouches and later in the Academy of Painting of the Venetian master Jacopo Marastoni. He then studied with the Hungarian history painter Henrik Weber in Budapest and the history painter Carl Rahl (1812-1865) in Vienna. He created romantic landscapes and monumental and decorative murals and frescoes in the style of the Venetian artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. He also decorated some grand palaces. He was also known for his portraits and nudes. In 1882, Lotz worked as a professor at various art academies in Budapest. His paintings, drawings and designs were purchased by the Hungarian state and are on display in the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest.

A label on reverse describes the work as copy by "Prof. Scheurig". The paint surface shows some paint losses and framing marks. There is a vertical hairline crack in upper edge of the wooden panel (approximately 5 cm). The ornate frame shows some losses of material. The overall dimensions, including the frame, are 94 x 69 cm.

In 1931, he took part in the International Exhibition in Paris. In 1939, he was represented at the Great German Art Exhibition in the Haus der Deutschen Kunst in Munich.
