Realist Still-life Works by Luciano Ventrone and Maurice Brianchon Come to Sale with DoyleJan 17, 2023 11:00 EST
Swiss painter Luigi Monteverde was born in Lugano in 1841. He is well known for his still-life and figurative paintings. Monteverde would often depict stylishly dressed women in everyday life scenes. One such artwork by the artist, titled Che Significa?, is a key highlight of the upcoming auction from Doyle. Signed and dated L. Monteverde/Lugana 1889, it is an oil on canvas painting. Another version of this image is a part of Geneva’s Rath Museum collection, and the third version was sold at Sotheby’s New York in 2006.
Luciano Ventrone’s Vincere il Tempo, an oil and mixed media on linen, also leads the catalog. Ventrone is a celebrated Italian painter known for his hyper-realist works. To achieve this effect, Ventrone first takes a photograph of the subject and then draws with a pencil on the canvas. This was followed by coloring and creating the light and shadow effect. Another still-life oil on canvas of note is French artist Maurice Brianchon’s Roses Jaunes. Brianchon transitioned from dynamic subjects to relaxed still-lifes during his later years in the countryside. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Doyle.
