      Mar. 21, 2024

      Francesco Fanelli, 1577 Florenz – um 1657 Paris, zugeschrieben

      Est: €18,000 - €22,000

      HERKULESKNABE ALS SCHLANGENBEZWINGER Höhe: 23 cm. Breite: 13 cm. Gesamthöhe inkl. Holzsockel: 31 cm. Auf runder Plinthe. Bronzeguss, schwarz patiniert. Bronzefigur, die das antike Thema aufgreift, wonach der Halbgott Herkules, Sohn des Zeus und der Alkmene, bereits als Kind zwei Schlangen erwürgte, die von der eifersüchtigen Gattin des Zeus in seine Kinderstube schaffen ließ. Das mythologische Thema ist seit der Antike in zahllosen Werken aufgegriffen worden. So auch von dem Florentiner Bildhauer Fanelli, der in Italien, vor allem Genua, dann aber auch in London gewirkt hat, hoch geschätzt vom Hof König Karls I. Als Sohn eines Bildhauers war er vor allem von Giambologna und dessen Schüler Pietro Francavilla und Pietro Tacca beeinflusst, sämtlich Vertreter des Manierismus. Giovanni Bandini bezeichnete Fanelli als seinen Assistenten bei der Schaffung einer Statue von Großherzog Ferdinand I 1599. Neben großen Aufträgen, wie etwa Brunnenfiguren im Hampton Court Palace, galt ein Großteil seines Wirkens den Sammlerbronzen. Zu der hier vorliegenden Bronze ist eine weitere, leicht abgewandelte Version bekannt, bei der Herkules direkt nach oben zum Kopf der Schlange blickt. Zweifellos hat bei der Gestaltung der Fund der antiken Marmorgruppe des Laokoon eine Rolle gespielt, der ebenfalls die Schlange hochhält. Die Zuweisung des Modells an Fanelli erfolgte zuerst in den 1980er-Jahren durch Charles Avery und Anthony Ratcliffe, nach dem Gussexemplar in der Sammlung Baron Hatvany. Dabei wurde ein Zusammenhang mit einer Zeichnung mit Darstellung eines Brunnens mit der Herkulesfigur gesehen, abgebildet in „Varie Architecture“ von 1661, in Bezug auf Königin Henrietta-Marias Palast in Wimbledon, begonnen 1639. Exemplare befinden sich im Kunsthistorischen Museum, Wien, im Louvre (Inv.Nr. 33540); ein ähnliches im Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. A.R. Literatur: Varie Architekture, Francesco Fanelli, florentinischer Bildhauer des Königs von Großbritannien, ca. 1620-1665, mit einundzwanzig Tafeln gestochen von William Faithorne, in Paris 1661. Franca Franchini Guelfi, Fanelli Francesco, in: Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, Bd. 44, 1994. (1391432) (11) Francesco Fanelli, 1577 Florence – ca. 1663 Paris, attributed THE INFANT HERCULES STRANGLING SERPENTS Height: 23 cm. Width: 13 cm. Total height incl. wooden base: 31 cm. On round plinth. Bronze casting with black patina. The discovery of the ancient marble group of Laocoon, which also holds up the serpent, undoubtedly inspired the present design. The model was first attributed to Fanelli by Charles Avery and Anthony Ratcliffe in the 1980s, based on the casting held at the Baron Hatvany collection. A connection was seen with a drawing depicting a fountain with the figure of Hercules, shown in Varie Architecture from 1661, in reference to Queen Henrietta-Maria´s palace in Wimbledon, commenced in 1639. Examples are held at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, at the Louvre (inv. 33540) in Paris and a similar example at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.

      Trotting horse after Francesco Fanelli (1577 - after 1657)

      Est: €3,000 - €4,000

      Chased and patinated bronze. Born in Florence, Francesco Fanelli (1577 - after 1657) learned sculpture and bronze casting in the studio of Giambologna, Pietro Francavilla and Pietro Tacca. He probably stayed in London from 1610 to 1642. During this time he advanced to become the "sculptor of the King".

      Francesco Fanelli (Firenze, 1577-Parigi?, 1663) (school of) Cupid riding on a dolphinProbably 17th century Bronze, natural brown patina on dark brown coating Overall 14,5x14,5x10 cm Bronze 11x10,5x8,5 cmCupid riding on a dolphin, with a mace in his right hand while with his left hand he holds wide open dolphin’s jaws, which, exhibiting the teeth, resembles a fierce aquatic monster. Splendid transparent brown patina with traces of an artificial dark brown patina. An identical model preserved in the Civic Museums of Padua is attributed to workshop of Niccolò Roccatagliata. This could be an alternative attribution of our bronze even though in the recent scholarship similar bronzes are assigned to the workshop of Fanelli. BibliographyDavide Banzato and Francesca Pellegrini, Musei Civici di Padova, Bronzi e Placchette, Editoriale Programma, Padova, 1989, p.110-111.

A graduate in Classics at Cambridge University, he obtained a Diploma in the History of Art at the Courtauld Institute and a doctorate for published work from Cambridge. Having been Deputy Keeper of Sculpture at the Victoria and Albert Museum for twelve years (1966-79), and a Director of Christies for ten years, since 1990 he has been a highly respected, independent historian, consultant, writer and lecturer. His books include ‘Florentine Renaissance Sculpture’, 1970, ‘Giambologna the Complete Sculpture’, Phaidon, 1987, ‘Donatello: An Introduction’, John Murray, 1994; ‘Bernini, Genius of the Baroque’, Thames and Hudson, 1997 (paperback, 2006),  and ‘The Triumph of Motion: Francesco Bertos’, 2008. Purchased by Dr Avery from the Adams Collection, Bonhams, 23 May 1996, lot 55.  This unusual, portrait like statuette was previously thought to have been associated with the work of Guglielmo della Porta. A red wax relief by Della Porta and Manno Sbarri (Florence, 1494-1553) depicting the Infant Hercules includes a similar nude female figure in kneeling position over a draped raised surface (see Trinity Fine Art exhibition, New York, 2009, no. 5). However the coiffure modelled in the present statuette is consistent with the 1630's and the casting recalls the technique of Fanelli.

      HERCULE ENFANT COMBATTANT LES SERPENTS D'après un modèle de Francesco FANELLI (1577-1661/64) Italie, seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle MATÉRIAUX Bronze à patine brun nuancé Socle en marbre rouge griotte et bronze doré H. 22 cm, L. 13 cm, P. 11 cm Socle : H. 10 cm, diam. 16 cm A SECOND HALF OF 17TH CENTURY ITALIAN PATINATED BRONZE OF HERCULES AS A CHILD FIGHTING SNAKES After a model by Francesco FANELLI (1577-1661/64) 8.66 in. high, 5.11 in. wide, 4.33 in. deep Base: 3.93 in. high, 6.29 in. diam. Cette sculpture en bronze représente Hercule, encore enfant, luttant avec les serpents envoyés par Junon pour le tuer. Celuici, déjà doté d'une force prodigieuse comme le montre sa puissante musculature, parvint à étouffer ses assaillants monstrueux, d'une seule main. Ce bronze, peut-être issu directement de l'atelier de Francesco Fanelli, tire l'originalité de sa composition de dessins réalisés par ce grand maître bronzier du XVIIe siècle, né à Florence, actif à Gênes et qui voyagea jusqu'en Angleterre pour se mettre au service du Roi Charles Ier. Le Musée du Louvre conserve un dessin de la main de Fanelli pour un projet de fontaine en bronze au centre de laquelle Hercule adopte une position similaire à notre oeuvre, agenouillé, le dos cambré vers l'arrière, regardant le serpent qui s'enroule autour de son bras. La grande expressivité qui se dégage du visage d'Hercule se retrouve dans un bronze similaire à celui que nous présentons et conservé au Fitzwilliam Museum de Cambridge. Attribué à l'artiste, cet exemplaire aurait été fondu lors de son séjour en Angleterre en 1641. Léo Planiscig, dans son ouvrage « Piccoli bronzi italiani del rinascimento », Milan, 1930, pl. CXIX, en illustre un autre exemplaire ayant appartenu à la collection von Beda de Vienne, en le classant comme issu d'un atelier vénitien de la seconde moitié du XVIe siècle.

      Est: £20,000 - £30,000

      A BRONZE GROUP OF ST. GEORGE AND THE DRAGON ANGLO-ITALIAN, MID 17TH CENTURY measurements note height: 19.7cm., 7¾in. base plate: 16.2 by 10.1cm., 6 3/8 by 4in. NOTE Fanelli is principally remembered today for his equestrian bronze statuettes. George Vertue wrote that he 'had a particular genius for these works and was much esteemd in K Charles I time - and afterwards'. Evidence of their wider popularity is inferred by his statement that Fanelli sold them 'to persons that were Curious to sett [them] on Tables cupboards shelves by way of Ornament'. They were instrumental in establishing the vogue for baroque sculpture in England. Abraham van der Doort's inventory of the king's collection in 1639 listed three of his statuettes in the Cabinet Room at Whitehall, of which item 28 is listed as 'a little S George on horseback with a dragon by'. It was displayed in the same room as Raphael's famous painting of the same subject (now Washington N.G.), although Raphael's painting was not Fanelli's source. A more likely inspiration is Ludovico Ciamberlano's 1601 engraving of St. Cresence Killing a Dragon. Fanelli modelled two basic variants of the St. George & the Dragon. In the first version, as the present group records, he adapted his model of the Leaping Horse, identified by its extended hind legs and more pronounced twist of the head, and added the figure of St.George who holds the lance in both hands. Examples of this first, more spirited version, are in the V&A, Welbeck Abbey and the Royal Collection. In the other version of St. George, Fanelli uses a different basic model known as the Rearing Horse, with contracted hind legs and the rider shown holding the lance in one hand and the reins in the other. Examples of this second variant are in the Holburne Museum, Bath and formerly Sylvia Adams Collection (Bonhams 23 May 1996, lot 63). The typical naturalised base with flat rim is the same as that found on the version in the V&A (A.5-1953) and with Michael Hall, NY (no.B60).

However, the stag is here shown with forelegs raised, rather than with the front left leg down, and the hounds head and collar is not cast-in with the stag's neck as it is here. A version of the present model, in a private collection, is monogrammed F.F.F.S.M.B.R./1641 which lends credibility to Weihrauch's attribution. Another version, closer to the present work and catalogued as mid-17th century, was offered in these rooms 17th April 1969, lot 119.

Aside from the Orpheus relief and associated animal plaques, the present relief of Christ Carrying the Cross as well as the reliefs of The Rest on the Flight into Egypt, Marcus Curtius Leaping into the Gulf and Adam and Eve were subsequently attributed to his hand. The relief of Christ Carrying the Cross is often paired with the Rest on the Flight into Egypt, despite their incongruous subject matter. Examples of the pairing can be found in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (inv.nos.66.43.1-1) and the University of Kansas Museum of Art, Lawrence. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York has another cast of the present relief, formerly in the Linsky collection (inv.no.198260.109) and which is of octagonal rather than rectangular format. The Kansas version mentioned above shares this format, as do some casts of the Rest on the Flight into Egypt, such as the one in the V&A (inv.A67-1951). It is probable that this is the last remaining example of the Christ Carrying the Cross in private hands as there are less than 5 known examples, 3 of which are in museums.

      FRANCESCO FANELLI (1577-AFTER 1641) ITALIAN, PROBABLY GENOA, SECOND QUARTER 17TH CENTURY A BRONZE REARING HORSE the stallion rearing up on its hind legs, his head inclining to the right with pricked ears and flowing mane pulled mostly to the left side of the neck; set upon a shaped veined grey marble plinth decorated with swags PROVENANCE Private Collection, Milan CATALOGUE NOTE This majestic Rearing Horse shows Fanelli's skill at rendering equine anatomy. The rippling compression of the shoulder muscles as the forelegs unfurl, and the mane flung to one side, give the model a vivacious effect of arrested movement. It has not been previously published. Wixom notes that the Berlin Museum contains two Rearing Horses, formerly in the Dr. James Simon collection, which mirror each other and were probably intended as pendants (inv.nos.5034-35; see Goldschmidt op.cit.). The present model is another cast of the latter, 14.5cm-high horse, while the cast catalogued by Wixom in the Heinz Schneider collection relates to the former. Both Weihrauch, who illustrated another cast of the present Rearing Horse model in the collection of Dr. Schrafl, Zürich, followed by Wixom, believed the model to emanate from the workshops of Giambologna. However more recent research by Avery on a closely similar but larger variant in the Alexis Gregory collection has identified Fanelli as the undisputed author of this group of related horses. Other casts of the present model exist as follows: in a private collection, Kent; as exhibited at Schloss Schallaburg, 1976 (op.cit); as sold from the Dr. Eduard Simon Collection (no.62, paired with a trotting horse after Giambologna no.61); as sold in these rooms 2 July 1973, lot 62. The model is often confused with a similar Rearing Horse (e.g. Bargello inv.no.430) used by Fanelli for one of his two St.George & the Dragon groups. This however has the mane flowing on the proper right side of the neck and a more spirited tail.

      f - FRANCESCO FANELLI (1577-AFTER 1641), ITALIAN, MID 17TH CENTURY A BRONZE GROUP OF ST. GEORGE AND THE DRAGON N/A CATALOGUE NOTE Fanelli is principally remembered today for his equestrian bronze statuettes. George Vertue wrote that he 'had a particular genius for these works and was much esteemd in K Charles I time - and afterwards'. Evidence of their wider popularity can be supposed from his statement that Fanelli sold them 'to persons that were Curious to sett [them] on Tables cupboards shelves by way of Ornament'. They were certainly instrumental in establishing the vogue for baroque sculpture in England. Of all Fanelli's statuettes, the St. George and the Dragon is undoubtedly the best known, for not only was St. George the patron saint of Genoa, where Fanelli had lived and worked since 1605, but also of England, where he arrived in 1631 to work for Charles I. Abraham van der Doort's inventory of the king's collection in 1639 listed three of his statuettes in the Cabinet Room at Whitehall, of which item 28 is listed as 'a little S George on horseback with a dragon by'. Interestingly it was displayed beneath Raphael's painting of the same subject (now Washington N.G.), although Raphael's painting was not Fanelli's source. A more likely inspiration, judging from the analagous counter-twists of St. George's torso and that of the dragon's - as well as the similarity of their classical uniforms - is Ludovico Ciamberlano's 1601 engraving of St. Cresence Killing a Dragon. Fanelli executed at least two basic variants of St. George & the Dragon. In the first version, as the present group records, he adapted his model of the Leaping Horse, identified by its extended hind legs and more pronounced twist of the head, and added the figure of St.George who holds the lance in both hands. Examples of this first, more spirited version, are in the V&A, Welbeck and the Royal Collection. In the other version of St. George, Fanelli uses a different basic model known as the Rearing Horse, with contracted hind legs and the rider shown holding the lance in one hand and the reins in the other. Examples of this second variant are in the Holburne Museum, Bath and formerly Sylvia Adams Collection (Bonhams 23 May 1996, lot 63). While no two casts by Fanelli are ever the same, certain details of the present bronze are analagous with others. For example the stitching each side of the tunic is similar to that found on the Sylvia Adams cast and versions of St.George sold at Christie's on 8 December 1987, lot 161 and Sotheby's 8 July 1993, lot 59. The typical naturalised base with flat rim is the same as that found on the V&A cast (A.5-1953) and another with Michael Hall, NY (no.B60).
