Finarte’s Old Master Paintings and 19th Century Art sale will highlight the work of Italian Renaissance painter Tommaso di Credi. Alternately known as the “Master of the Santo Spirito Sacra Conversazione” or simply Tommaso, the artist was active between 1490 and 1510 in Florence. Available in this auction is Tommaso’s interpretation of the Madonna and Child, a common religious theme in his work. The Child is shown gazing at a toddler dressed in rags, offering a gesture of blessing with one hand.
More contemporary works available in this event include a 1907 unfinished oil study by Roman artist and film director Giulio Aristide Sartorio. The piece was practice for a large series titled The Poem of Human Life, commissioned for the Central Hall of the Venice Biennale. Its style aimed to bridge the gap between Greek-Latin and Nordic cultures. Costantino Barbella’s 1877 Harmony sculpture on offer shows two women in conversation, while his 1894 study piece for The Cherry or At the Market depicts a roughly carved peasant resting a bucket at her feet.
