Dante Gabriel Rossetti Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1828 - d. 1882

(b. May 12, 1828, London; d. April 9,1882, Margate in Kent, England) English painter and poet. Born Gabriel Charles Dante Rossetti, Rossetti’s father was a poet, Dante scholar and Italian loyalist who immigrated to England from Naples, Italy for political reasons. Rossetti also had a talent for poetry and began writing at a young age. He attended King’s College School, Cary’s Academy of Art and The Royal Academy, where he met artists with whom he would form the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and studied painting under Ford Madox Brown. Rossetti, along with William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais, founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood; a group of painters, poets and critics. The group, who began meeting formally in 1848, disliked the way in which art had been evolving since the time of Raphael, including Mannerist art, which they considered to be mechanical, and Victorian art, which they considered to be materialistic. They gained inspirations from styles pre-Renaissance, looking back to the purity and idealization of the art of the medieval period. The group was not well received by outside critics and controversial. Rossetti favored the theme of romantic love in both his painting and his poetry; and depicted the subject often, working in both oil and watercolor. Rossetti married Elizabeth Eleanor Siddal in 1860, and she served as model for him for many of his early works; Siddal died of a laudanum overdose only two years after their marriage. He buried his complete works of poetry in her coffin, but regretted that decision and retrieved them eight years later. After Siddal’s death, he began to use Williams Morris’s wife, Jane, as a model. In the late 1860’s, Rossetti’s health began to suffer and he became addicted to the sedative, chloral. He suffered from depression and paranoia, which the chloral only intensified. During the summer of 1872, Rossetti had a severe mental breakdown and attempted suicide. Though he did recover from the episode, and even resumed painting, his health continued to deteriorate and he died of kidney failure in 1882 at a resort near Margate in Kent.

            Nov. 29, 2023

            Dante Gabriele Rossetti [attribuito a], Album con nucleo di 12 disegni.

            Est: €6,500 - €13,000

            Dante Gabriele Rossetti [attribuito a], Album con nucleo di 12 disegni. Nucleo di 12 disegni diversificati per tecnica, supporto e soggetti rappresentati, ma applicati al medesimo album. Si allega documento manoscritto in possesso di Tammaro De Marinis, ultimo proprietario, nel quale sono elencate le provenienze dei disegni stessi, ovvero la collezione di William Graham e il successivo passaggio d'asta del 2 aprile del 1886 (l'anno successivo alla morte del mecenate) da Christie Manson&Woods in un'asta dedicata alla sua collezione (Catalogue of the important collection of pictures in oil and drawings in watercolours, formed by that well-known amateur William Graham, Esq., deceased. Late of Grosvenor Place: which (by Order of the Executors) will be sold by auction, by Messrs. Christie, Manson & Woods, at their great rooms, 8 King Street, St. James Square, on Friday, April 2, 1886, and following day, and on Thursday, April 8, 1886, and two following days, at one o' clock precisely); cita, poi, la proprietà di Charles Fairfax Murray. William Graham è stato un grande uomo d'affari e mecenate dell'arte rinascimentale italiana, ma la sua importanza non è solo come acquirente e protettore ma anche come personalità che, con la sua collezione di arte italiana, ha contribuito ad ispirare alcuni degli artisti che poi lui stesso ha sostenuto, come Edward Burne-Jones e lo stesso Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Charles Fairfax Murray è stato un pittore, mercante, collezionista, benefatore e storico dell'arte, nonchè uno degli esponenti dei Preraffaelliti. Fu assistente di Edward Burne-Jones e stabilì velocemente un legame anche con Dante Gabriel Rossetti, nel cui studio entrò da giovanissimo, William Morris e Philip Webb. A seguito di ulteriori approfondimenti siamo giunti all’ipotesi che i disegni, nella totalità o in parte, possano essere stati eseguiti da Charles Fairfax Murray che era stato allievo sia di Rossetti che di Burne-Jones. Alcune figure allungate presenti nell’album ricordano proprio lo stile di quest’ultimo nel cui studio Murray era entrato nel 1867. Murray eseguì alcune copie molto fedeli dei dipinti di Rossetti Beata Beatrix, Salice d’Acqua ed Elena di Troia, questi ultimi due oltretutto presenti nell’album come studi. Come scritto nella biografia Treccani “Assorbì talmente la maniera del maestro che non di rado opere sue furono attribuite al Rossetti”. L’artista si trasferì in Italia nel 1872 dove collaborò con John Ruskin e si stabilì a Firenze. Fu inoltre importante punto di riferimento per il pittore senese Ricciardo Meacci indirizzandolo allo studio dei quattrocentisti. Anche se tornò in Inghilterra nel 1882, mantenne rapporti col nostro paese dove era rimasta la moglie. Nel frattempo aveva sviluppato interesse per la bibliofilia e il commercio antiquario, attività che evidentemente fu anche alla base dei rapporti con Tammaro de Marinis che tra l’altro scrisse il suo primo profilo biografico nell’Enciclopedia Treccani. Beneficò largamente - con doni di quadri e di denaro - le pubbliche gallerie del suo paese, in special modo la National Gallery di Londra e il Fitzwilliam Museum di Cambridge e nel 1904 cedette la sua collezione di più di ottocento disegni di Preraffaelliti al Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. La questione rimane comunque aperta e pertanto la raccolta viene presentata in asta come attribuita. Questa scheda revisionata sostituisce quanto riportato nel catalogo cartaceo. L'album è di cm 55,5x39. Al contropiatto anteriore è applicato in alto a destra un ex libris con iscritto a penna e inchiostro di china bruno: "Feathery Hotel Worcester". Sotto è applicata una targhetta con stampato: "Drawn in chalk by Dante G. Rossetti". 1) Matita su carta lucida. mm 380x530. Soggetto simile a Morning Music (1864). 2) Studio di panneggi.

            Est: £300 - £500

            Dante Gabriel Rossetti for Morris and Co., an Arts and Crafts ebonised Sussex armchair, designed circa 1863, the circular seat on a square frame of turned front legs united by plain side stretchers and turned front stretcher, the lyre back with curved dowel spindles, ball knop finials to the uprights, curved and shaped beech arms, 88cm high Note: along with Ford Maddox Brown and Philip Webb, Rossetti was one of the PreRaphaelite artists commissioned by William Morris to design a traditionally inspired range of domestic chairs, to be hand crafted and manufactured by Sussex trained craftsmen for sale to the middle classes and Bohemian elite of Britain. In what was seen as an over industrialised Western world, the Sussex chairs perhaps best represents the philosophy of William Morris at the beginning of the Arts and Crafts movement which he pioneered; combining design and craftsmanship with utility and functionality.

            Est: €40,000 - €60,000

            Londra, 1828 - Birchington-on-Sea, 1882 Giovane donna alla spinetta Acquerello e matita su carta applicata su cartoncino, cm 75X55,5 Provenienza: Italia, collezione privata L'eccellente qualità, il soggetto e la tecnica pittorica suggeriscono l'ipotesi dell'attribuzione dell'opera illustrata direttamente a Dante Gabriel Rossetti, o comunque ad uno dei migliori artisti preraffaelliti della sua cerchia. Ogni particolare è descritto con cura e dovizia di dettagli, mentre l'abito colorato stretto in vita da una fascia di seta dalle tinte pastello avvolge delicatamente la figura. La spinetta elegantemente decorata completa un interno austero e semplice, nel quale risalta il crocefisso appeso alla parete ed illuminato da un raggio di luce. Particolarmente affascinante è il volto della giovane donna, che ricorda Jane Morris, la celebre musa dei preraffaelliti e moglie di William Morris e per certi aspetti anche Alexa Wilding, modella di molte sue opere: posto di profilo, cattura l'attenzione anche per lo sguardo teso verso un punto indefinito al di fuori dello spazio della rappresentazione. Il dipinto sembrerebbe suggerire l'utilizzo iconografico di Santa Cecilia in chiave preraffaellita, inserita in un contesto idealizzato, dove il riferimento religioso è il crocefisso. L'iscrizione sul retro dell'opera suggerisce una provenienza dalla collezione di Nellie Melba (1861-1931), celebre cantante d'opera tra la fine dell'Ottocento e i primi del Novecento e molto vicina alla sensibilita` preraffaellita. Nellie Melba, nome d'arte di Helen Porter Mitchell, fu la moglie dI Charles Nesbitt Frederick Armstrong e forse la soprano più pagata al mondo. Si noti come l'iscrizione al retro della nostra carta indichi un prezzo assai sostenuto per l'epoca, 40 sterline. Lo splendido acquarello riflette l'attaccamento dell'artista alla magnificenza in tutte le sue forme, riuscendo a stabilire una dialettica tra la bellezza dell'anima e la bellezza del corpo.
