GIUSEPPE ANTONIO FABBRINI
(Florence 1748 – 1799)

Allegory of Painting
Half of the 1780s
Tempera on canvas, 68.89 x 103.54 inch.

The work, tempera on canvas in a great state of conservation, is part of a series of four big paintings of various authors documented in origin in the Villa La Zambra in Sesto Fiorentino. This residence, nowadays a police office, belonged in the 18th century to Ginori family (Cf. A. Villoresi, Sesto Fiorentino notizie di storia, geografia, arte edited by L. Lici and S. Pollastri, Sesto Fiorentino, 1988, p. 128) and it was part, ab antiquo, of the numerous real estates in the same area of the noble Florentine family, among them we mention, for its importance, the Porcelain Manufacture in Doccia, founded in the 1737 by the marquis Carlo senator of Francis I Holy Roman Emperor.
Basing on the typological personal touch of the figures and on the stylistic features, the painting can be ascribed to Giuseppe Antonio Fabbrini, Florentine painter active in the second part of the 18th, much appreciated by the Tuscan Gran Dukes and by the other members of the aristocracy for portrait painting and frescos, above all (Cf. S. Bellesi, Catalogo dei pittori fiorentini del ‘600 e ‘700. Biografie e opere, 3 voll., Florence, 2009, I, p. 137 and II, figg. 534-544; with previous bibliography).
