Questions about this piece?


This superb pair of paintings was produced in Italy during the second half of the 17th Century, most probably in Milan or wider Lombardy. Both paintings portray still life floral studies: one work depicts three separate bunches of flowers, one bouquet in a tall vase, one in a shorter metallic vase, and the third in an upturned blue and white dish; the other painting depicts a still life of flowers in an upturned basket amidst scattered floral sprays. Both paintings are set within a pastoral landscape, which is visible in the background of each, particularly the upper right corners. The manner of execution is smooth and fluid, with painterly flourishes in the floral heads. The colour palette is remarkably sombre: darkness pervades, a foil punctuated by the vibrant floral sprays.

One painting is inscribed to the reverse “Vincenze del Fiore”, remarkably close to “Vincenzino de’ Fiore”, the name by which the artist Giuseppe Vincenzino was known, and the basis for the attribution. Vincenzino was active in Milan and Lombardy during the second half of the 17th Century. The reverse of the canvas of one painting also includes the number ‘2523’ in red pigment, while the other canvas includes this number below a faded stamp with Cyrillic lettering.

The oil on canvas paintings are contained within giltwood frames.
