STEFANO DELLA BELLA, Florence 1610 – 1664 Florence. Procession of the Feast of Corpus Christi. Original etching, c1648

STEFANO DELLA BELLA
Florence 1610 – 1664 Florence

Della Bella was the son of a sculptor. He learnt etching with Remigio Cantagallina.

First employed by the Medici, he spent much time in Rome from 1633 and in 1639 moved to Paris, in the train of his patron the Florentine ambassador to Louis XIII; and stayed to work for French publishers.

In the political climate of anti-Italian sentiments in the Fronde, della Bella returned to Florence.

The Holy Sacrament, covered by a canopy, is carried in procession, followed by the young King Louis XIV and his mother Anne of Austria, towards the large pavilion with the altar. Crowds kneel in front of tapestries designed by Raphael.

A demonstration staged by the queen and Mazarin to show the young king’s piety, probably that described by Madame de Motteville in her memoirs as having taken place on 12 June 1648 in the first court of the Palais Royale, where a temporary altar had been set up.

EVA RENEE NELE, Born Berlin 1932. Figures in a desolate  landscape. Original etching, c1956

 

EVA RENEE NELE
Born Berlin 1932

The daughter of Arnold Bode, founder of the Documenta in Kassel, the city where she grew up, Nele is known as a sculptor in metal, and goldsmith, and would seem to be only very occasionally a printmaker.

From 1950 to 1955 she studied at the Berlin Academy under the sculptor Hans Uhlman, then at the Central School of Arts & Crafts in London, and finally at the printmaking Studio Lacourièrè in Pars.

She had her first solo exhibition in 1956 at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. In 1957 she became a member for a few years of the newly founded Situationist International, an organization of avant-garde artists, intellectuals and political theorists. Its aim was to bridge the gap between art and life.

Nele’s work seeks to explore man’s inner soul. Fear, existential crisis and death are themes central to her sculpture. As a jewellery designer, she is an honorary member of the Goldsmiths’ Company in London.

MORTIMER MENPES
Port Adelaide, Australia 1855 – 1938 Pangbourne, Berks

Menpes settled in London in 1875. He met Whistler in 1880 and they were friends until 1887; he was entrusted to print the impressions of Whistler’s Venice Set.

Menpes printed all his own plates, always signing ‘imp’ after his name in indication. His early plates were etched and he turned to drypoint in later years.
