Description

A beautifully detailed watercolour heightened with white signed A Cittadini (bottom left). The picture has been cleaned and floated onto a new mount by an accredited paper conservator.
Cittadini is best known for his miniature paintings whereas his larger works can be more elusive, in our portrait he has applied the same techniques used as if painting a miniature. The head, hands, and rug are finely executed with the point of a brush; close examination reveals some faint pencil underdrawings. Larger areas such as the dress, sofa, and background have been painted in much broader strokes. The compelling features of the sitter make this portrait particularly attractive.
Alessandro Cittadini was an accomplished Italian artist of the first half of the 19th century. He was mentioned as working ca.1820 in Rome, around 1850 in Genua, and in 1854-55 in Rotterdam. Works by him can be seen in the Museum of Bruxelles. In their book ” Antissier et le portrait miniature Romantique en Belgique “, published in 1998, Bodo Hofstetter and Philippe Plantage suppose the artist had lived a long time in Antwerp – numerous portrait miniatures of Antwerp’s residents were painted by him.
