FINDART.CC: Important renaissance discovery at Carlo Orsi-Trinity Fine Art
A large, newly-discovered and unpublished early work by the influential Antwerp painter, draftsman and etcher Frans Floris de Vriendt (called Floris, 1519/20-1570), more renowned in his day than Bruegel the Elder, will be unveiled at TEFAF Maastricht 2019 by Carlo Orsi-Trinity Fine Art.
This important painting depicting Susanna and the Elders will form the centrepiece of the gallery’s stand. The work was completed shortly after Floris’s return from a long visit to Italy, and it testifies to his interest in combining the lessons of his Italian travels with a traditionally Netherlandish approach to oil paint.

The Florence International Biennial Antiques Fair will take place from the 21st to the 29th of September in the wonderful setting of Palazzo Corsini.

Pelagio Palagi and Francesco Hayez on show at AMART 2019
AMART, the International Art Fair promoted by the Milanese art dealers, is coming.
Carlo Orsi Gallery will be exhibiting a ravishing lunette by Pelagio Palagi (1775-1860), which is an important addition to the catalogue of his work.
The painting bearing the title of Virtue Caressing Merit and Hounding Out Ignorance in the Presence of Scholarship is clearly associated with the fresco of the same subject Palagi painted in Palazzo Torlonia in Rome between 1813 and 1814 as part of the celebrated cycle illustrating the Story of Theseus (destroyed when the Palazzo was demolished to extend Palazzo Venezia (in 1901-2). The Allegory of Scholarship, personified by the elderly male figure seated on the right, was painted by a young Francesco Hayez, Palagi's pupil.

One of the great sculptors of the Roman Baroque on show at Tefaf Maastricht 2019
A glorious terracotta Head of an Angel by Antonio Giorgetti (documented in Rome from 1657-1669), will be exhibited at Tefaf Maaastricht forthcoming edition.
It is taken from his Angel with the Sponge commissioned for Ponte Sant’Angelo (1668-69), a project overseen by Bernini for Pope Clement IX.
Andrea Bacchi's studies show that this sculpture is not a preparatory model but an object in its own right, made for the collectors’ market: during the latter years of the 17th century, there was a marked increase in the desire to collect terracottas, especially those by Algardi, from which the present head takes inspiration.
TEFAF New York Fall 2018 is coming...

Complementing them will be an exciting variety of rare and fresh-to-market paintings, including an important work by the 16th century Mannerist, Il Salviati.
The last Piamontini on show at TEFAF Maastricht 2017
Of great interest to connoisseurs of sculpture will be the signed Milo of Croton, dated 1740, the last documented marble by Giuseppe Piamontini (1664-1742), one of the most important late Baroque Florentine sculptors who worked in both marble and bronze. Based on a model for a bronze statuette known in three casts, one of which is in the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, it depicts the celebrated 6th century BC wrestler who came from the Greek city of Croton in southern Italy.
