STILL LIFE OF VEGETABLES

Condition report

Canvas is lined. The image reads well with some of its original impasto preserved. Scattered pindots of loss are scattered, like an X mark on on the onion at right, as well as other dots in the background.

Craquelure with some minor lifting is also present on the left quadrants, which should be addressed. Inspection under UV is impeded due to a thick and old varnish. Offered framed.


The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.

Catalogue note

Predominantly active in Lombardy, Pianca was nevertheless inspired by the Genoese Alessandro Magnasco and the Venetian Sebastiano Ricci. His idiosyncratic style is marked by strong colors and rapid brushstrokes, as apparent in the present work.


We are grateful to Dr. Anna Orlando for suggesting an attribution to Giuseppe Antonio Pianca after first-hand inspection.
