        Il Semolei (Battista Franco, 1510-1561). Allegorical Figure of Chastity, black chalk * Franco (Battista, 1510-1561). Allegorical Figure of Chastity, circa 1550, black chalk heightened with white on grey paper backed with laid paper, shaped at the top, inscribed verso in pen and ink 'Primaticcio 3 3', with counterfeit collector's stamp of Sir Peter Lely (see Lugt 2092), and an unidentified initial 'B' in pen and ink lower right, sheet size 15.5 x 12.8 cm (8 1/8 x 5 ins), modern wooden frame (49.5 x 35 cm) QTY: (1) NOTE: Provenance: Collection of Sir Lawrence Gowing (1918-1991). The verso of the frame is annotated with notes by Gowing on attribution and iconography obtained from fellow art historians: 'Popham (from the grave) / Pouncey (after a re-think) and Gere (upside down) now agree that this drawing is by Battista Franco / ? Virtues etc in Hall of Libreria / Giuseppe Porta called Salviati (J.A.G.) / Salviati (better than) / Felicity S.W. / Parmesan School A.E. / Giambattista Zelotti / RBH'. Previously identified as an allegorical figure of Abundance. However this drawing lacks the main attributes associated with virtue: the presence of rabbits at the Virgin Mary's feet symbolise the overcoming of lust through chastity, while the veil also symbolises chastity. Around 1554, Battista Franco was in Venice where he was commissioned to make the ceiling tondi of allegorical subjects and wall panels for the now famous Libreria Marciana, designed by the architect Jacopo Sansovino, and constructed between 1537 and 1588.

        Giovanni Battista FRANCO.1498-1561 La Disputa coi dottori.XVI secolo Acquaforte e bulino, mm. 372x468. Filomargine, foglio con filigrana. Bell’esemplare. Secondo il Sopher, in questa incisione non c’è l’acquaforte già ricordata dal Bartsch. Probabilmente è una delle prime incisione del Semoleo, datandosi verso l’inizio del 1530, all’epoca del soggiorno romano. Nonostante il suo stile a volte “opaco o ripetitivo e la pesantezza con cui molti dettagli sono stati disegnati, questa stampa ha una sofficità e una tonalità grigia dominante che rivelano parzialmente le sue origini venete”. Molte sono le somiglianze con certe figure monumentali di stampo raffaellesco. Lo stesso Sopher nota la strana discordanza tra l’architettura simmetrica e l’asimmetria delle figure, con il Cristo “piccolo e non visualmente centrato”. La composizione è tenuta bilanciata dalla statua raffigurata nell’abside centrale.

La composizione è tenuta bilanciata dalla statua raffigurata nell’abside centrale. Etching and burin, mm. 372x468. Trimmed at margin, sheet with watermark. Beautiful specimen. According to Sopher, in this engraving there is no etching already mentioned by Bartsch. It is probably one of the earliest engravings by Semoleo, dating back to the beginning of 1530, at the time of the Roman stay. Despite its sometimes "opaque or repetitive style and the heaviness with which many details have been drawn, this print has a softness and a dominant gray tone that partially reveal its Venetian origins". There are many similarities with certain monumental Raphaelesque figures. Sopher himself notes the strange discrepancy between the symmetrical architecture and the asymmetry of the figures, with the Christ "small and not visually centered". The composition is kept balanced by the statue depicted in the central apse.

        Est: €800 - €1,600

        Bulino. mm 365x268.Il foglio è al momento sconosciuto ai repertori degli incisori italiani del Cinquecento, è comunque tratto, in controparte, dal medesimo soggetto inciso da Battista Franco verosimilmente prima del 1557 (TIB 32/16,7). Bellissima prova, nitidamente impressa con ottimo contrasto, su carta vergellata con filigrana "lettera M e giglio entro stemma" (Woodward 310).

        GIOVANNI BATTISTA FRANCO (zugeschrieben) Gaius Fabricius Luscinus weist die Schätze des Pyrrhus zurück.,Schwarze Kreide und Feder in Braun, laviert und weiß gehöht, auf Bütten. (1540). 26,6 : 43 cm. Bezeichnet und datiert unten rechts "Matúrino f. 1540". , Wir danken Dr. Linda Wolk-Simon, Fairfield, für die freundliche Unterstützung bei der Katalogisierung dieses Loses. Provenienz: Sammlung Fritz Hasselmann, München, verso mit dem Stempel (Lugt 1012), Hugo Helbing, München, Auktion 24.11.1892, Los 665 (als Maturino). , Linda Wolk-Simon hat auf Grundlage eines digitalen Fotos für vorliegende Zeichnung eine Zuschreibung an Battista Franco vorgeschlagen, für den allerdings der umfangreiche Gebrauch der schwarzen Kreide nicht unbedingt typisch sei. Die Zeichnung zeige auch Anklänge an Arbeiten Francesco Salviatis, der als Urheber ebenfalls nicht ganz ausgeschlossen werden kann. Die Datierung rechts unten gebe wohl das Entstehungsdatum der Zeichnung wieder. Wahrscheinlich handelt es sich um die Kopie nach einem Fresko auf einer Wandfassade, vielleicht des Palazzo Gaddi, die von Polidoro und Maturino gestaltet wurde. - Kleines Löchlein im Hinterkopf des Knienden, daher alt auf Sammlungsuntersatz aufgelegt. Leicht knitterfaltig in oberer rechter Ecke, vereinzelt mit oxidiertem Bleiweiß, ansonsten gut.

        Die Entführung der Deianeira. Kupferstich. 23,9 x 38,3 cm. B. 40 I (von II). Die Komposition dürfte auf ein römisches Relief zurückgehen und zeugt von Francos lebenslanger Beschäftigung mit der antiken Kunst. Vasari weiß zu berichten, dass Franco, der später auch Einfluss auf Federico Barroci nahm, als 20jähriger nach Rom reiste, um sich dort dem Studium der antiken Statuen zu widmen. - Ganz ausgezeichneter Druck vor der Hinzufügung des Adresszusatzes, an drei Seiten knapp innerhalb der Darstellung beschnitten (oben ca. 5-6 mm), links bis an die Darstellung geschnitten. Vereinzelt schwach fleckig, vereinzelt kleine Randeinrisse, oben kleiner Randeinriss, dünne Stellen im Papier, unauffällige Quetschfältchen vom Druck, weitere Gebrauchsspuren, im Gesamteindruck jedoch in guter Erhaltung. Sehr selten. Aus der Sammlung John Postle Heseltine, London (Lugt 1508).
