        RUBENS SANTORO

        Est: €1,500 - €2,000

        Mongrassano, 1859 - Napoli, 1942 Ritratto di Tecla Firmato Rubens Santoro in basso a destra, titolo e data 1919 sul telaio Olio su tela, cm 52X43 Provenienza: Milano, collezione privata I dipinti di Santoro sono sempre lodati per la loro autenticità, precisione e per la raffinatezza nella scelta dei soggetti e nell'uso della luce. Inizia la sua formazione presso il Regio Istituto di Belle Arti a Napoli sotto la guida di Domenico Morelli il quale, riconoscendone le eccezionali capacità artistiche, lo presenta a Pompeo Molmenti. Tuttavia, sarà l'incontro con Mariano Fortuny nel 1874 a influenzare profondamente Santoro, manifestando così il suo innato gusto per il colore e l'abilità tecnica. Le sue opere cattureranno l'attenzione di Adolphe Goupil, il celebre mercante che lo introduce nel mercato parigino e londinese, frequentando gli studi dei principali pittori italiani. A Londra, dove Santoro soggiorna frequentemente, è considerato uno dei migliori vedutisti veneziani dopo il Canaletto. Tra i suoi estimatori vi è anche Margherita di Savoia, che lo presenterà allo Zar Nicola II di Russia. Dal 1880, Santoro si dedicherà non solo alle vedute, agli scorci e alle scene di vita lagunare, ma anche ai soggetti orientali e ai ritratti, di cui il dipinto qui presentato ne è uno splendido esempio. Partecipa a numerose esposizioni di prestigio, tra cui l'Esposizione Mondiale Colombiana di Chicago nel 1893, la Mostra Nazionale di Milano nel 1906, e l'Internazionale di Buenos Aires nel 1910. A Napoli, Santoro è un assiduo partecipante alla Promotrice, prendendo parte al consiglio artistico della mostra del 1911 e figurando in quelle del 1912, 1915, 1916 e 1924. Nel 1902 sarà nominato professore onorario dell'Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli. Bibliografia di riferimento: A. Schettini, Rubens Santoro, in La pittura napoletana dell'Ottocento, vol.

      • Rubens Santoro (1859 - 1941) Venezia - Squero di San Trovaso
        Feb. 29, 2024

        Rubens Santoro (1859 - 1941) Venezia - Squero di San Trovaso

        Est: -

        Rubens Santoro (1859 - 1941) Venezia - Squero di San Trovaso Olio su tela 23,7 x 37,2 cm Firma: in basso a sinistra, “Rubens Santoro” Elementi distintivi: sulla cornice, a matita, numero di inventario "7074A", forse apposto negli Stati Uniti; sul retro della cornice, segni di passaggi d'asta a gesso bianco Stato di conservazione. Supporto: 80% (reintelo) Stato di conservazione. Superficie: 90% (ridotte cadute e ritocchi; tracce di vernice protettiva) Calabrese di nascita, Rubens Santoro si forma all’Istituto di belle arti di Napoli sotto la guida di Domenico Morelli, assimilando la lezione di Filippo Palizzi, ma anche di Mariano Fortuny presente nel 1874 nella città partenopea. Dopo aver venduto alcuni dipinti nel 1873 all’influente mercante parigino Frédéric Reitlinger, dal 1875 è legato ad Adolphe Goupil, che a Napoli faceva incetta di vedute e temi di genere particolarmente apprezzati dal mercato internazionale, come attestano le sue opere conservate in pubbliche istituzioni italiane ed estere (Baltimora, Art Museum; Manchester, Art Gallery; Torino, Museo Civico, Reggio Calabria, Museo Nazionale). Torre Annunziata, Castellammare di Stabia, Procida, Amalfi, Capri e Resina sono i soggetti di questi anni realizzati con una pennellata veloce e un tocco virtuoso di matrice fortuniana. Risalgono agli anni Ottanta dell’Ottocento i primi soggetti veneziani, replicati con grande successo per oltre un ventennio e inviati a importanti esposizioni e alle gallerie parigine Goupil e Chaine & Simonson. Come notato da Isabella Valente, l’artista si concentra sulla Venezia minore dei Ciardi, di Favretto e di Nono. La laguna gli permette, così come il Golfo di Napoli, «incantevoli giochi di luce, di forti chiaroscuri, di atmosfere brillanti» (Isabella Valente, “’Dove il sole è così intenso da far male agli occhi’, Rubens Santoro e le scelte della luce”, in Tonino Sicoli, Isabella Valente, a cura di, “Rubens Santoro e i pittori della Provincia di Cosenza tra Otto e Novecento”, catalogo della mostra, Catanzaro, 2003, pp. 23-38, p. 28). Tra i luoghi più caratteristici ritratti in questi anni figura lo Squero di San Trovaso, uno dei più antichi e famosi “squeri”, i cantieri navali, che prendono il nome dalla squara utilizzata per costruire le imbarcazioni. Posto sull’omonimo rio de San Trovaso questo squero, risalente al Seicento, è uno dei pochi ancora oggi in funzione e viene utilizzato esclusivamente per le gondole. Le facciate delle case in legno, secondo uno stile più alpino che lagunare, sono dovute all’estro degli squerarioli molti originari del Cadore. In questo dipinto Santoro sostituisce con un cielo azzurro la chiesa dei Santi Gervasio e Protasio, che con il suo campanile nella realtà si erge alle spalle degli edifici in legno delle officine.

AD: ART CONSIGNMENTS WANTED. CONTACT US BIOGRAPHY: Rubens Santoro was born in Italy in 1859 and began his apprenticeship with his two brothers in his father's studio. Santoro continued his studies at the L'Instituto di Belle Arti in Naples under Domenico Morelli, but left after one year, finding formal study stifling. He was influenced by the great Mariano Fortuny and Santoro's earlier works reflect similar electric brush-strokes and naturalistic details. Santoro devoted much of his career to painting picturesque, almost photographic Venetian canal scenes. The crisp colours, sparkling light, and serene compositions make Santoro's canal scenes some of the most popular in its genre. After 1880 however, Santoro began to paint colour-saturated scenes depicting North Africa. Like his family members, he often travelled and most likely made his way to the region. His ability to capture the white sunlight of the Sahara, transforms his small-scaled paintings into gem-like mementos of his travels. In the present lot, Santoro features the cool shadows cast by the prominent architecture. The calm of the street, despite the numerous figures in the composition, is echoed by the soothing hues of brown, pink, and blue.

        Est: €40,000 - €60,000

        (Mongrassano 1859–1942 Naples) Promenade by a Venetian Canal, signed Rubens Santoro, oil on panel, 24 x 33.5 cm, framed Provenance: Christie’s New York, 25 October 1996, lot 85; Gallerie d‘Arte Enrico, Milan, ref. 96/426; acquired from the above in 1998; Private Collection, Italy. Rubens Santoro’s Venetian landscapes were amongst his most sought-after works at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. They were especially popular with his English audience. Indeed, there was an international market ready and waiting for his views of the city as a result of the increased demand for souvenir views on the part of the new bourgeoisie. The present painting depicts a sunlit canal and was likely completed en plein air. This is the Venice of the Venetians living their everyday lives, with no tourists and unseen by many, with their sheets drying on their balconies, a gondola with local people and pedestrians walking by. The artist has created a serene, luminous and exquisite view of Venice with exceptionally fine detail.

AD: ART CONSIGNMENTS WANTED. CONTACT US BIOGRAPHY: Rubens Santoro was born in Italy in 1859 and began his apprenticeship with his two brothers in his father's studio. Santoro continued his studies at the L'Instituto di Belle Arti in Naples under Domenico Morelli, but left after one year, finding formal study stifling. He was influenced by the great Mariano Fortuny and Santoro's earlier works reflect similar electric brush-strokes and naturalistic details. Santoro devoted much of his career to painting picturesque, almost photographic Venetian canal scenes. The crisp colours, sparkling light, and serene compositions make Santoro's canal scenes some of the most popular in its genre. After 1880 however, Santoro began to paint colour-saturated scenes depicting North Africa. Like his family members, he often travelled and most likely made his way to the region. His ability to capture the white sunlight of the Sahara, transforms his small-scaled paintings into gem-like mementos of his travels. In the present lot, Santoro features the cool shadows cast by the prominent architecture. The calm of the street, despite the numerous figures in the composition, is echoed by the soothing hues of brown, pink, and blue.

Santoro continued his studies at the L'Instituto di Belle Arti in Naples under Domenico Morelli, but left after one year, finding formal study stifling. He was influenced by the great Mariano Fortuny and Santoro's earlier works reflect similar electric brush-strokes and naturalistic details. Santoro devoted much of his career to painting picturesque, almost photographic Venetian canal scenes. The crisp colours, sparkling light, and serene compositions make Santoro's canal scenes some of the most popular in its genre. After 1880 however, Santoro began to paint colour-saturated scenes depicting North Africa. Like his family members, he often travelled and most likely made his way to the region. His ability to capture the white sunlight of the Sahara, transforms his small-scaled paintings into gem-like mementos of his travels. In the present lot, Santoro features the cool shadows cast by the prominent architecture. The calm of the street, despite the numerous figures in the composition, is echoed by the soothing hues of brown, pink, and blue.
