      ACHILLE VERTUNNI Napoli, 1826 ; Roma, 1897 Paesaggio campestre con contadini e animali Firmato A Vertunni in basso a sinistra Olio su tela, cm 110X192 Provenienza: Milano, collezione privata Achille Vertunni studia all'Accademia di Napoli presso la Scuola di Paesaggio sotto la guida di Gabriele Smargiassi e Pergola, e con Bonolis la figura. Nel 1853, si trasferisce a Roma, dove alterna il suo interesse per i soggetti storici con quello per il paesaggio puro. Partecipa regolarmente alle mostre annuali degli Amatori e Cultori dell'arte, nel 1859 espone a Napoli e nel 1861 a Firenze, presentando i dipinti Paludi Pontine e Campagna romana, i quali segneranno il suo definitivo allontanamento dalla pittura storica a favore delle romantiche e malinconiche vedute della campagna romana. È dunque in questo scenario che si inserisce la nostra tela, che dimostra chiaramente la nota poetica e la maestosa calma che l'artista riusciva a infondere nelle sue opere. La calibrata struttura compositiva della scena è composta da un paesaggio luminoso, dalla rigogliosa vegetazione, con contadini e animali sullo sfondo. Più che il disegno, è il colore ad avere una sua eloquenza e una sua capacità di suggestione, diretta conseguenza dello studio accurato dell'atmosfera che l'artista è riuscito a creare in modo impeccabile. Sue opere si trovano alla Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Roma, alla Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Firenze (Torrente presso Narni), alla Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Torino (Paludi pontine, alla Galleria d'arte moderna di Milano (Paesaggio di Maccarese) e al Museo Revoltella di Trieste (Campagna romana).

    • Achille Vertunni - "Lavandaie lungo il Tevere" (Washerwomen along the Tiber.)

      Achille Vertunni - "Lavandaie lungo il Tevere" (Washerwomen along the Tiber.)

      Est: €4,000 - €4,500

      Achille Vertunni, born in Naples in 1826, was a 19th-century Italian painter. After his father's death at the age of three, he resisted his mother's expectations that he would pursue a legal or architectural career, devoting himself completely to art instead. He undertook studies at the Royal Neapolitan Institute of Fine Arts and the private school of Giuseppe Bonolis. He actively participated in the "realist revolution" in Naples, sharing patriotic liberal ideals with other artists such as Domenico Morelli and Filippo Palizzi. In 1848, he joined the Neapolitan uprisings, risking his life on the barricades. Vertunni began his artistic career with historical works influenced by Morelli's style, but soon developed a personal style that combined Palizzi's naturalism with the landscape innovations of the Posillipo school. Among his best-known works is "After the Duel," exhibited in 1851. In 1853 he moved to Rome, where he completed works such as "Pia de' Tolomei" and "Dante in the Forest." Over the years, Vertunni abandoned historical landscape painting to embrace landscape painting, specializing in views of the Roman Campagna and other locations. Despite criticism and financial difficulties, Vertunni was successful and became an internationally renowned painter, participating in exhibitions in cities such as London, Vienna, Philadelphia, Chicago and Paris. Over the years, he amassed a considerable collection, but the need to deal with the financial difficulties of his large family led him to sell everything in 1881. Vertunni died in 1897 in Rome, marking the end of an artistic era perceived as antiquated compared to new pictorial trends. His figure and work, despite the success of his era, have not received a specific monographic survey, partly because of a historiography that has interpreted his art in a self-referential way. Moreover, his role as a publicist and his participation in the cultural and political debate of the late 19th century have yet to be explored. | (FR) Achille Vertunni, né à Naples en 1826, est un peintre italien du XIXe siècle. Après la mort de son père à l'âge de trois ans, il s'oppose aux attentes de sa mère, qui voulait qu'il fasse une carrière d'avocat ou d'architecte, et se consacre entièrement à l'art. Il étudie à l'Institut royal napolitain des beaux-arts et à l'école publique de Giuseppe Bonolis. Il participe activement à la "révolution réaliste" à Naples, partageant les idéaux libéraux patriotiques avec d'autres artistes tels que Domenico Morelli et Filippo Palizzi. En 1848, il se joint aux soulèvements napolitains, risquant sa vie sur les barricades. Vertunni commence sa carrière artistique par des œuvres historiques influencées par le style de Morelli, mais développe rapidement un style personnel qui combine le naturalisme de Palizzi et les innovations paysagères de l'école de Posillipo. L'une de ses œuvres les plus connues est "Après le duel", exposée en 1851. En 1853, il s'installe à Rome, où il réalise des œuvres telles que "Pia de' Tolomei" et "Dante dans la forêt". Au fil des ans, Vertunni abandonne la peinture de paysage historique pour embrasser la peinture de paysage, se spécialisant dans les vues de la Campagne romaine et d'autres lieux. Malgré les critiques et les difficultés financières, Vertunni connaît le succès et devient un peintre de renommée internationale, participant à des expositions dans des villes telles que Londres, Vienne, Philadelphie, Chicago et Paris. Au fil des ans, il a accumulé une collection considérable, mais la nécessité de faire face aux difficultés financières de sa famille nombreuse l'a conduit à tout vendre en 1881. Vertunni meurt en 1897 à Rome, marquant la fin d'une époque artistique perçue comme désuète par rapport aux nouvelles tendances picturales. Sa figure et son œuvre, malgré le succès de son époque, n'ont pas fait l'objet d'une recherche monographique spécifique, en partie à cause d'une historiographie qui a interprété son art de manière autoréférentielle. En outre, son rôle de publiciste et sa participation au débat culturel et politique de la fin du XIXe siècle n'ont pas encore été explorés.

      Napoli 1826 - Roma 1897 Contadini nella campagna romana Firmato A Vertunni in basso al centro Olio su tela, cm 63X110 Provenienza: Fort Lauderdale, FL, Schramm Galleries Roma, collezione privata Allievo all'Istituto di Belle Arti di Napoli, del Fergola, dopo un esordio con quadri storici, fu attratto dalla pittura di paesaggio e aderì alla Scuola di Posillipo. Trasferitosi a Roma nel 1857 trasse dalla campagna romana l'ispirazione per numerosi dipinti dal vero, pervasi di un sottile lirismo come nella bella tela qui presentata: i suoi soggetti preferiti sono infatti pittoreschi scorci dell'agro romano e delle paludi pontine spesso animate da butteri e mandrie, interpretandole con accenti di verità esaltandone la maestosità e a volte il senso di abbandono, con una attenzione del dettaglio del singolo elemento capace di restituire allo spettatore forti emozioni e suggestioni. Nel nostro quadro la calibrata struttura compositiva della scena è caratterizzata da un paesaggio luminoso: più che il disegno, è il colore ad avere un ruolo dominante nella composizione, evidente nello studio accurato dell'atmosfera.

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.

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. Collectors will note that our Spring 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. HID01801242017

      ACHILLE VERTUNNI, (Italian, 1826-1897), Paestum, oil on canvas, 39 x 77 in., frame: 55 x 94 in.

      Est: $4,000 - $6,000

      ACHILLE VERTUNNI (Italian, 1826-1897) Paestum oil on canvas signed A. Vertunni Roma, l.l. 39 x 77 in., frame: 55 x 94 in. Provenance: A New England Institution. Other Notes: Achille Vertunni, a Neapolitan painter who moved to Rome in 1853, is best known for his romantic landscape depictions of ancient ruins. This was a popular genre at the time, due in large part to the Grand Tour enthusiasm for the subject matter. In this work, Vertunni depicts the ruins of the important ancient Greek town of Paestum, on the Tyrrhenian sea in present day Southern Italy. The three well-preserved Doric temples seen in the painting date to 550-450 BC. Two are dedicated to Hera (Juno) and one to Athena (Minerva).
