WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Tomasso Brothers Fine Art, renowned specialists in European sculpture, have announced that they will be taking part once again in TEFAF New York Fall.  The Tomasso Brothers, Dino and Raffaello, are recognised internationally for their specialism in European sculpture from the early Renaissance to the Neo-Classical periods, and in particular, European Renaissance bronzes. 

A highlight on their stand will be a fine marble carved Head of Juno, circa C1st-C2nd AD.  The high quality of the carving, shown in the rendering of the curlhe crisp outline of the eye and regular arch of the brows, indicates that the head was executed by a skilled artist, most likely trained in Rome, at the height of the city’s power.  

Another highlight is ‘View of the bay of Naples with Vesuvius from Posillipo’, a large landscape painting by Pietro Fabris, Widely admired by visiting tourists, he was an artist active in Naples between 1756 and 1792 who played a significant role in the development of C18th Neapolitan landscape painting.  His popularity among English visitors in particular was likely influenced further by his close relationship with Sir William Hamilton (1730-1803), the British Envoy Extraordinary in Naples. Fabris is said to have sometimes added the phrase 'English painter' to his signature, which may have been a simple homage to his clientele.

Prior to their return to New York, Tomasso Brothers is also exhibiting at the International Antiques Biennial (BIAF) in Florence (23 September to 1 October 2017) with a display paying homage to Florentine art. The gallery will focus exclusively on the art of Florence, with all works being either by Florentine artists, or created in Florence.  

An important centrepiece of the stand will be a bronze allegorical group, circa 1695, representing Charity by Massimiliano Soldani-Benzi (1656-1740).  Beautifully crafted and finished, the sculpture’s translucent, golden patina reveals warm, red undertones that are characteristic of Soldani-Benzi’s bronzes. 

In Florence the gallery will also feature an exquisite Renaissance Madonna and Child composition, a polychrome stucco, circa 1423-1440, attributed to Lorenzo Ghiberti (c.1378-1455), who at only 20 years of age was awarded the commission to make the bronze doors of the Florentine Baptistery, after winning a famed competition in which the losers included Filippo Brunelleschi (1377–1446).
