      Bartolomeo Cesi, Italian 1556-1629 St Peter Martyr writing on t

      Est: £4,000 - £6,000

      Bartolomeo Cesi, Italian 1556-1629 St Peter Martyr writing on the ground; red chalk heightened with white on blue paper, inscribed 'Bmeo Cesi' in black chalk (lower left), 21.1 x 24.5 cm. Provenance: Private collection, France.; with P. & D. Colnaghi & Co., London.; Private Collection, UK, since 1996.; By descent. Exhibited: London and New York, P. & D. Colnaghi, 'An Exhibition of Old Master and 19th Century Drawings', 5-15 December 1995 and 9 January-10 February 1996, no.10. Literature: Stephen Ongpin, 'An Exhibition of Old Master and 19th Century Drawings', Colnaghi & Co., London, 1995, no.10 (illustrated). Note: We are grateful to Marco Riccòmini for confirming the attribution of the present lot. According to the Bolognese art historian Carlo Cesare Malvasia (1616-1693), Cesi was a pupil of Nosadella (c.1549-1571), and early in his career worked in the church of San Pietro in Bologna alongside Prospero Fontana (1512-1597) and Camillo Procaccini (1551-1629). While his early work reflects the influence of the Bolognese mannerism of his elders, a presumed trip to Rome in 1591 exposed Cesi to a more restrained, Counter-Reformation style of painting that he adopted in his mature work. In 1594 Cesi completed several frescoes of the 'Life of the Virgin' in the church of Santa Maria dei Bulgari in Bologna, and an 'Adoration of the Magi' for San Domenico the following year. At the turn of the century he was employed on the fresco decoration of several rooms of the Palazzo Fava, through which he came into contact with the work of the Carracci, whose frescos for the palace were completed a few years earlier. This was, however, one of the few secular commissions he undertook. Cesi's work is almost entirely religious in subject matter, and the artist remained closely associated with several frescos and paintings of Carthusian saints and subjects for the choir of the Certosa of Bologna, generally dated to between 1612 and 1616. The present sheet is a typical example of Cesi's figure studies, which are often in red chalk on blue paper. Perhaps inspired by the Carracci, Cesi's drawings were made from life, using models posed in his studio, and indeed, his drawings have often in the past been attributed to one or another of the Carracci. Like this drawing, many of Cesi's surviving figure studies depict models dressed in monastic robes. The present sheet, however, remains unconnected to any surviving work by the artist (Stephen Ongpin, 'An Exhibition of Old Master and 19th Century Drawings', Colnaghi & Co., London, 1995). For comparable drawings by the artist in red chalk, see the example at Windsor, 'A Kneeling Monk' [RCIN 903696], and the double sided drawing which sold at Christie's, London, 5 July 2013, lot 279 ( £6,000).

      Bartolomeo Cesi, Santo francescano inginocchiato. 1590 ca.

      Est: €1,500 - €3,000

      Carboncino e gesso; carta tinta di grigio e lievemente preparata. Foglio: mm 277x210. In basso a destra compaiono due timbri di collezioni non identificate (non in lugt). Individuato come uno studio settecentesco, il foglio può invece essere avvicinato allo stile maturo del bolognese Bartolomeo Cesi che, dopo una formazione tardomanierista dalla metà degli anni '90, volge ad una cifra più severa che ebbe particolare successo presso la Chiesa e gli ordini religiosi. Per il gesto e la posizione del santo, pur con delle differenze sostanziali, è possibile trovare confronti con la pala della Chiesa di San Giacomo Maggiore, raffigurante la Madonna in gloria e santi, del 1590-95 (cfr. S. VITALI, Tommaso Laureti e Bartolomeo Cesi: precisazioni sulla decorazione dell'"altra" cappella in S. Giacomo Maggiore, in "Arte e Bologna", 7/8, 2010-2011, pp. 23-26) e con gli affreschi della cappella della Certosa opera che Cesi fu chiamato ad eseguire nel 1616 (per cfr. grafici si veda anche S. MORÉT, Two drawings for Bartolomeo Cesi's fresco in S. Giovanni al Monte, in "Master Drawings", 53, 2015, 1, pp. 81-88).

      Bartolomaeo Cesi

      Est: €16,000 - €18,000

      (1556-1629 Bologna) The Birth of the Virgin, pen and brown ink, brown wash, heightened with white, squared in black chalk, on paper, 24.9 x 41.2 cm, with an old inscription on reverse Pontormo, laid down, minute smoothed-out wrinkles at the sides, mounted and framed, (GL) The present drawing is a design for a fresco in Santa Maria dei Bulgari in Bologna that no longer exists. According to Mario di Giampaolo, the drawing dates from c. 1594. The highly finished execution of the sheet gives an impression of what the fresco may have looked like. The delicate depiction of the figures and the careful treatment of light in this intimate scene underline Cesi’s achievements as an artist, and one can easily understand why Francesco Angeli considered the lost series of the Life of the Virgin the most beautiful cycle in Bolognese art during the Counter Reformation. According to Mario Di Giampaolo, the drawing, apart from its function as a modello for the lost fresco, may also have served as a preparatory design for a painting preserved in a private collection. The drawing can also be related to a sheet in Stuttgart and an altarpiece in San Giorgio in Ferrara (Compare: Mario Giampaolo, “Un nuovo disegno di Bartolomeo Cesi per Santa Maria dei Bulgari”, Festschrift für Konrad Oberhuber, edited by Achim Gnann and Heinz Widauer, Milan 2000, pp. 180-182).
