‡ ‡FOLLOWER OF MICHELE MARIESCHI (1710-1743)
CAMPO DELL'ARSENALE, VENICE
oil on canvas
79 x 112cm / 31 x 44in


Provenance:
(1) Christie's, London, Anonymous Sale, 20th July, 1916, Lot 104
(2) With Bolmqvist Kunsthandel Oslo, where acquired by the present owner.


The painting is based on the original engraving by Michele Giovanni Marieschi, from the series Magnificentiores Selectioresque Urbis Venetiarum Prospectus (1741). Francesco Albotto (1721-1757), his pupil, painted this particular scene, drawing on his teacher's engraving and original painting. Palluchini notes that that Albotto's depiction of this view "can become the 'pilot-work' for the reconstruction of Albotto's activity" (1).

The present work was most likely completed by one closely familiar with both Marieschi's etching and Albotto's painting. There are a number of minor differences however the composition throughout remains similar.

ANTWERP SCHOOL (c.1630)
ST JEROME& ST MARY MAGDELENE
oil on copper
36.0 x 26.0cm / 14.2 x 10.2in

There is a tradition of both saints retiring to remote places for penitence. St Jerome is known to have spent years of his life living as a hermit in a cell near Bethlehem, praying for the removal of his worldly desires and impulses. The book that Jerome is gazing intently at refers to his translation of the Hebrew and Greek which became the Latin Vulgate translation of the Bible. The legend of Mary Magdalene as a 'penitent' is an anachronistic conflation of various apocryphal records of women associated with Christ. Her status as a sinner comes from the Medieval presumption that she must have been the woman of 'ill-repute' who bathed Christ's feet with her tears . Her status as such is signified here by the hair shirt that she wears and her kneeling in penitence and prayer.

There are most probably two hands responsible for this pair, one for the floral garlands and one for the figures. The former worked in the style of Jan Brueghel and his workshop; the other in the style of Van Dyck and Titian (both of whom painted St Jerome and Mary Magdalene as penitents).

Later in life, she began to work in oils and exhibited at the Royal Academy on a number of occasions between 1852-1865. Severn married Sir Charles Thomas Newton K.C.B., the eminent archaeologist responsible for the discovery and excavation of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, and a friend of John Keats and John Ruskin. Her self-portrait hangs in the National Portrait Gallery, London.
