Zandomeneghi, Federico (1841 - 1917)
The Flower SellerDate: not dated
Museum: Private collection
Location: No info
Size: h: 66.4 x w: 54.7 cm,
Notes: Praised by Suzanne Valadon as a ‚Äėdessinateur exceptionelle‚Äô, Zandomeneghi adopted the medium of pastel, applied with an oil-like richness, as his preferred technique in the 1890‚Äôs. His favourite subject matter in these works, as in his paintings, were single figures of women and children, often engaged in some sort of everyday activity.
This large drawing, whose signature was until recently obscured by its old mount, is a splendid example of Zandomeneghi‚Äôs skill as a pastellist. It may be related to a painting of a Crysanthemum Vendor, of identical dimensions. The painting, which has been dated to the 1880‚Äôs or 1890‚Äôs, once belonged to the Italian sculptor Medardo Rosso and remains in the possession of his descendants.
