Amazing work by Massimo Taparelli Marquis d'Azeglio (Turin 24 October 1798 - 15 January 1866) Oil on canvas 66x54 cm, with golden frame (pure gold leaf). Never restored. Absolutely authentic. Sold by Meeting Art on 4.12.2004 for 12,000 euros in addition to auction rights. Authenticity confirmed by world leading international gallery experts.
Probably painted on commission from the Marquis Filippo Ala Ponzone.
Politician and successful writer, Massimo D'Azeglio discovered a strong passion for painting from an early age, when, as he writes in Ricordi, in 1814, following his father, designated plenipotentiary minister to the Holy See in Rome, "[he] felt that internal blaze, that strong inclination for painting that has then constantly lasted".
This, like the other masterpieces that preceded it and which had consecrated their author as the inventor of the so-called historiated landscape - a genre that included the insertion of episodes from the world of historical fiction into landscapes captured from life and which are cited as examples La morte di Montmorency (1825), Ferraù e l'ombra di Argalia (1834), Bradamante che combatte col mago Atlante per liberar Ruggero dal castello incantato (1835), La vendetta (1835) -, is inserted in a landscape elaborated through a thoughtful study of the natural element, which D'Azeglio achieved thanks to the closeness with the Flemish painter Martin Verstappe,n of whom he became a pupil during his second Roman stay, in 1819, and with whom he painted en plein air in the Roman countryside acquiring a method of precise work: "I painted from life", he writes in Ricordi, "on canvases of sufficient size, trying to finish the study, in a painting, on the spot", because "art is the portrait of the truth and first of all the landscape artist must learn to reproduce the truth, then to make paintings ".
This rare painting has all the features of the romantic landscape that the critic Defendente Sacchi suggested landscape painters to include in their work - "the horrid mountain landscape, the stream that shatters among the stones, the waterfall, the valley, the forest "(see D. Sacchi,"Gazzetta Privilegiata di Milano”, 1834, p, 1033) -, is studied from life and it is precisely in the accurate description of its elements, the tree with the knotty trunk, the yellowed leaves, the aquatic plants in the stream, the sky full of threatening clouds that hide the sun, that it is possible to recognise all the artistic qualities that have made D'Azeglio, before a man of letters and a politician, a painter.
Exhibited in a museum in Turin. (Attention: there is a copy of this painting that does not even come close to the level of this absolutely authentic painting. The semi-hidden signature, as often happened in his works, is absolutely coeval, compliant, autographed and constitutes a further confirmation of authenticity). His works are exhibited at the PInacoteca di Brera, at the Mostra del Romanticismo held in Milan in 2019 in Piazza della Scala, at the National Museum of Turin and in museums around the world.

Seller refuses to take it back.
UNTRUSTWORTHYPlease note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.I have not offended anyone. The sculpture is almost 40 years old but is in perfect condition. The fact that a pin has been reinforced when it has been polished cannot be such a problem as to pass the value from 900 to 300 as you would have liked. Is absurd. The photos I published on catawiki are real and show that the sculpture is perfect once the marble base is mounted. I have sent two marble bases both intact. In any case I have offered to return 150 euros to the buyer. A new marble base costs at most 20 pounds. I also offered the return with the reimbursement of the expenses incurred by me. And would I be dishonest?

I spent 130 euros for insured transport and 30 euros for the bubble wrap and the packaging resisted the journey. When he came to her, he was in fact intact. If they put heavy loads on it then I'm not guilty. However, I am really sorry for what happened and I also contacted the shipper and they wanted the photos of the packaging and the acceptance with reserve.
