"Graziani Pietro And / Or Francesco (attr), Oil On Canvas, Seventeenth Century"
Oil on canvas depicting a battle scene between Turks and Christians, attributed to GRAZIANI Piétro and / or Francesco. To clean. Period late seventeenth century. Francesco Graziani, known as Ciccio Napoletano, is an Italian painter active in Naples and Rome in the second half of the seventeenth century. We do not know much about his life. He was probably born in Capua at an unknown date because he is quoted in some inventories as "Ciccio de Capua" after Roethlisberger-Bianco. According to Luigi Lanzi, he was a pupil of Jacques Courtois, he says Borgognone1. In the 1670s, he moved to Rome ... On the other hand, two documents reported by Filippo Titi show that he was in Rome in the 1680s: an oil painting depicting St. John the Baptist preaching (1683 ) preserved in the Cimini Chapel of the Church of San Antonio dei Portoghesi3, and a painting depicting the Penitent Magdalen in the Church of Santa Croce della Penitenza (or delle Scalette) in Rome, identified with the Crucifixion and Mary Magdalene, now in the parish of Ardea ... The knowledge of the works of Francesco Graziani is rather difficult to specify because it can vary according to the expertises and remains thus discussed. The two scenes of battles in the Pallavicini gallery were finally given to Pietro Graziani, who is not known if he is related to Francesco, perhaps his son because he seems younger. The name of Pietro Graziani appears for paintings of battle scenes in the 1733, 1750 and 1817 inventories of the Linlightow collection at Hopetoun House. The name of Pietro Graziani is indicated on the frame of two paintings of landscapes of the collection Gasparrini of Rome. Likewise, a painting in a private collection in Bologna depicting a battle with a trumpet player bearing an inscription on his back that seems contemporary on the painting "Pietro Graziani 1726" ...
