Who is Eugenio Oliva Rodrigo?
Eugenio Oliva y Rodrigo (12 February 1852 – March 1925) was a Spanish painter, primarily known for his murals.

Oliva was born in Palencia. His father was a farmer from Murcia with artistic aspirations. He and his brother José were enrolled in the "Escuela Municipal de Dibujo de Palencia".[1] Around 1873, he went to Madrid to continue his studies at the "Escuela Superior de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado", a school associated with the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. He also found a position in the workshops of Germán Hernández Amores,[2] a painter from Murcia who may have known his father.

He did well in his studies, but showings at the National Exhibitions in 1876 and 1878 were disappointing. However, later in 1878, a place opened up at the "Academia Española de Bellas Artes de Roma [es]" and a competition was held to fill it. He won the competition and was awarded a stipend to go to Rome. Shortly after, he married the daughter of an actor named Francisco Bueno and they went together in 1879.

While there, he sent numerous works back to Spain (as required); mostly on Biblical and Classical themes. He also visited Venice and Naples, doing paintings on lighter subjects. After four years, he received his qualifications and was awarded second place at the National Exhibition of 1884 for his painting of Miguel de Cervantes.

Upon returning to Madrid, he attempted to build a clientele, but things did not go well until late in 1885 when Casto Plasencia, representing the Basílica of San Francisco el Grande, commissioned him to decorate the Chapel of Carlos III on the theme of the Immaculate Conception.[2] In 1889, this work earned him the Order of Isabel the Catholic.[3] It also led to a commission to decorate the meeting room of the Caja Madrid with allegories on the Cardinal Virtues.

Despite these successes, family obligations required him to seek employment as a teacher so, in 1890, he obtained an interim position as a professor of drawing and decorative arts at the Escuela de Artes y Oficios. Over the next decade, he would hold several other interim or low-paying posts until, in 1903, he achieved a tenured professorship at the Escuela de Artes e Industrias,[2] followed by a similar position at the Escuela de Artes y Oficios in 1911.

During this time, he received another commission for murals at the Círculo de Recreo de la Victoria (a private club) in Valladolid.[3] A few of these in the casino were apparently somewhat suggestive in nature and included a version of Leda and the swan with friars.[citation needed] This was in addition to more traditional Classical scenes executed at private residences. In 1907, the Diputación of his home town engaged him to create religious murals at the orphan's home and provincial hospice. In 1911, as a result of that work, he was commissioned to paint historical murals in the lobby of the Diputacion's governmental palace [es].[1] All but one of these were severely damaged by a fire in 1966.

In 1919 his son Ángel, who was a doctor, invited his parents to live with him in Villaconejos. Oliva accepted and spent his last years painting small format genre canvases; mostly dealing with peasant life and the local wineries. His wife died in 1924 and he died in Villaconejos the year after, aged 73.

PROPERTY FROM THE ESTATE OF NEAL GLASS AND KERRY BETENSKY


PROVENANCE:
Giovanni Piancastelli (1845-1926), painter, collector and Director of the Galleria Borghese, Rome (likely the compiler of the albums in which this sheet was contained);
Estate of Reverend Father Francis Agius (1891-1958) of Our Lady of Counsel, Inwood, Long Island, New York;
Sale, New York, by heirs of the above;
Harry Glass, Long Island, New York, circa 1950s, acquired from the above;
Estate of the above;
Neal Glass and Kerry Betensky Long Island, New York by descent;
Estate of the above.

EXHIBITED:
"Italian 19th Century Drawings and Watercolors," Shepherd Gallery, New York, April 1976.

LITERATURE:
R. Olson, Italian 19th Century Drawings and Watercolors: An Album. Camuccini & Minardi to Mancini & Balla, Shepherd Gallery, New York, April 1976

Modernists and traditionalists will find works to covet within this sale. And, without a doubt, this auction presents a singular opportunity for enthusiasts of 19th-century European academic drawings.

Collectors will note that our July sale contains an attractive selection of 19th-century academic drawings from the estate of Neal Glass and Kerry Betensky. These sheets originate from an immense corpus of over 12,000 drawings assembled into a series of albums in the later 19th century by Giovanni Piancastelli (1845-1926), a painter as well as then-Director of the Galleria Borghese in Rome. During Piancastelli's period of activity, collecting drawings on this scale was not uncommon, particularly for a figure with close ties to an artistic community such as he had. It is notable that the current selection of drawings were contemporary works of art when Piancastelli acquired them. Many of the artists represented were figures Piancastelli knew personally, and who held teaching positions at the Academy of San Luca in Rome. While the fate of Piancastelli's entire drawing collection is unknown, the first batch purchased from it en bloc was sold in 1901 to the American Hewitt sisters, Sarah and Eleanor, who were forming a museum in New York City. Their 3,500 Piancastelli drawings remain in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum.

The Glass/Betensky drawings in the current catalogue share the above provenance, literature and exhibition history, unless otherwise noted in our online catalogue. Please note that the cataloguing for these sheets follows the extensive research and connoisseurship undertaken by the Shepherd Gallery, New York, as published in the catalogue to its 1976 exhibition Italian 19th Century Drawings and Watercolors: An Album. Camuccini & Minardi to Mancini & Balla.

Modernists and traditionalists will find works to covet within this catalogue. And, without a doubt, this auction presents a singular opportunity for enthusiasts of 19th-century European academic paintings and drawings. The sale boasts a rich array of masterful oils on canvas and panel in beautiful condition by celebrated Italian, French, Belgian, German, Polish, Danish and Spanish painters. Some of them, such as Cesare Detti's monumental Venetian spectacle, Henri III reçu par le doge Muccinigo au palais Foscari, with its cast of 60 figures, earned inaugural exposure to the public at the Paris Salons. One work in the sale, a jewel-like panel of a scullery maid peeling apples by Belgian genre specialist, Charles van Meer, was formerly in the personal collection of Queen Victoria of England and her husband Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
