Lot No. 519


Alessandro Rosi


(Florence 1627–1697)
Diana, a Satyr and Cupid,
oil on canvas, 85 x 67 cm, framed

Provenance:
Private collection, Rome

We are grateful to Sandro Bellesi for confirming the attribution of the present painting on the basis of a high resolution digital photograph.

The present painting is an allegory of Chastity tempted by Vice, represented respectively by Diana and a Satyr. The subject created here by Alessandro Rosi attained considerable success among the painters of his day such as the painting by Sigismondo Coccapani in a Florentine private collection (see Fototeca Zeri, no. 53074).

Alessandro Rosi was born in 1627. He was a pupil of Cesare Dandini. The model for the figure of Diana reoccurs in other paintings by the artist, such as the Salome formerly in the collection of Giovanni Pratesi, dated to circa 1650–53 (see: E. Acanfora, Alessandro Rosi, Florence 1994, p. 124, fig. 14, cat. no. 13).
