Brizio, Extensive Landscape

Extensive Landscape with a Castle and Two Seated Men

Other Images:

Original drawing in brown ink on laid paper, 256 x 385 mm., laid down to a Talman-type mount. An extensive Carracci-style landscape (formerly given to Agostino Carracci) with seated nude figures in the foreground; small losses restored. The attribution to Brizio, who was the best disciple of Ludovico Carracci, was given by Ann Sutherland-Harris. Brizio was born in Bologna and was thought to be originally a pupil of Passarotti, but later studied under Agostino and Ludovico Carracci. There are fine paintings by him in both San Petronio and San Domenico in Bologna. He was also quite active as both an etcher and engraver (The Illustrated Bartsch lists about fifty prints by him) and is known to have completed plates left unfinished by Agostino Carracci. The present drawing is remarkably close to landscapes by Agostino.

E. Lelli (Lugt 2852). Although originally classified as unidentified, this mark is now thought to be that of the Bolognese artist and collector Ercole Lelli (1702-1766). Lelli, originally a gun maker (like his father), began to study art with Zanetti, made engravings and won a first prize for drawing from the Bologna Academy in 1727. He later, 1754, became director of that academy, for which he had developed a studio for anatomical studies. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be known about his collecting.

Robert Udny (L. 2248). Robert Fullarton Udny (1722-1802), originally of Udny Castle, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and later of Teddington, Middlesex and London, was a merchant engaged in trade with the West Indies, and the brother of John Udny, British consul in Venice and Livorno. Both brothers were avid collectors, principally of Italian art, John of paintings, and Robert of paintings, drawings and prints, as well as books. His drawings, some 680 lots and mostly Italian 16th and 17th centuries, were sold in 1803. Udny was a member of the Royal Society and of the Society of Antiquaries.

John Talman (?) (see L. 2462). This drawing, on the basis only of the style of the mount, may also have belonged to Talman (1677-1726), a British architect, member and director of the Society of Antiquaries and a voracious collector of prints and drawings. His collection was said to include 26,000 prints and 7000 drawings.
