About

ULPIANO CHECA Spanish, 1860 - 1916 VENETIAN CANAL signed & located "U. Checa" Venezia (lower left) Also dedicated: "A Marguerite Pinédo affectueusement" oil on canvas 18-3/8 X 21-3/4 inches (46.5 X 55 cm.) framed: 29-5/8 X 33 inches (75 X 83.6 cm.) PROVENANCE Private Collection, France ULPIANO FERNANDEZ CHECA SANZ Known in the art world as Ulpiano Checa , was born in Colmenar de Oreja (Madrid) in 1860 and died in Dax (France) in 1916. He studied at the San Fernando Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid as a student of Federico de Madrazo. In 1884 he obtained a scholarship to attend the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and expand his studies. His first job as a pensioner causes expectation "The Invasion of the Barbarians" and is awarded at the National Exhibition of 1887 with first medal. In 1888 he moved to Paris as a graphic corpsponsal of the "Spanish and American Illusion", he quickly integrated into the French capital, and participated in all kinds of official acts and competitions of the artistic world. His studio at Boulevard Saint Honoré is frequented by the artists of the city. He is a consecrated painter who sells without difficulties. In 1888 he received the 2nd medal at the Vienna International Exhibition and a 3rd medal at the Universal Parisina in 1889. Its thematic is varied from the themes of Ancient History to the Orientalists, Parisian views and genre painting, with a thorough and precious brushstroke, which captures the effects of movement and speed (whether in its recreations of the careers of cavallos in the old Rome, or they get their scenes from the contemporary era). In the "90s" he travels across the Americas and also frequently travels to Venice where he lives long periods. This work of "Canal Veneciano" is inspired by these long stays in Venice. His brushstroke is much looser with an intense color palette. Life is serene in this painting, it no longer pursues movement as in its many previous works. The calm and calm waters led channel reflect all the intensity of the sun, creating iridescence of mauve, blue and cream colors. There is a light contrast between the two faces of facing houses. But the soft contrast, not very intense. Giving a feeling of placidity and charm to the work.
