About

Genoese School, possibly Giovanni Andrea De Ferrari 1598-1669 (Genoa) A Holy Monstrance Surrounded by Putti We would like to thank Professor David M. Stone for examining the painting via high-resolution computer images. Mr Stone think the painting looks Genoese and painted around 1620-1630s. A specialist friend to Mr Stone who is an expert on Genoa suggests it could be an early work of Giovanni Andrea De Ferrari. Giovanni Andrea de Ferrari is one of the most famous masters of the 17th century Genoese school. Born around 1598, he was introduced to painting by Bernardo Castello. He later went to Bernardo Strozzi's studio, where his actual formation took place, as his early works show, and this painting shows a lot of his early characteristic elements. Giovanni Andrea de Ferrari's subject matter was almost exclusively religious. He was a close follower of the style of his master Strozzi and several of their paintings have been confused with each other. However, his style distinguishes itself from his master's style through his thinner application of paint and his penchant for expressive van Dyckian heads, tapered hands and tightly rolled drapery sleeves. This painting has previously been described as Ribera's school, which was probably due to the chiaroscuro in the four putti faces. We believe the Genoese School attribution to be more accurate. Monstrance, also called ostensorium, in the Roman Catholic church and some other churches, a vessel in which the eucharistic host is carried in processions and is exposed during certain devotional ceremonies. (Source: britannica) oil on canvas circa 1620-1630s canvas dimensions 64 x 51 cm frame 78 x 64 cm Provenance: Hermann Historica, a87p, Castle Auction, lot 73, as "Naples School, Probably from the workshop of Jusepe di Ribera" We found an inventory note from the collection of Giovanni Carlo Doria, described as "Un putto con quattro teste di Morti di Giovanni Andrea Ferrari”.
