    Philippe de Champaigne

    Biography : Philippe de Champaigne was born in Brussels on May 14, 1602. He received his early training from Jean Bouillon and Michel de Bordeau, a well-known portrait painter. In 1620, Champaigne entered the studio of Jacques Fouquières, a celebrated landscapist, whose influence on Champaigne proved lasting. The young Champaigne then considered traveling to Italy in order to complete his artistic education, or else joining Rubens’s studio in Antwerp, but instead chose to follow Fouquières to Paris. After his arrival in 1621, he spent some time in the studio of the then highly esteemed painter Georges Lallemand. Champaigne also worked with Nicolaes Poussin on the decoration of the Luxembourg Palace under the direction of his future father-in-law, Nicholas Duchesne. In 1628 he succeeded Duchesne as First Painter to the Queen Mother, Marie de Médicis, and adopted French nationality the following year. Between 1634 and 1638 he enjoyed the patronage of Louis XIII, providing altarpieces for churches in Paris and portraits for the chief minister, Cardinal Richelieu. During the minority of Louix XIV, Champaigne’s career remained uninterrupted under the regency of Anne of Austria. However, his work began gradually to explore new directions. Throughout his career, during different reigns, Champaigne continued to be considered as one of the great painters of his time and his work was much in demand. He was one of the fourteen founding members of the Académie Royale de Peinture et Sculpture in 1648. In the first part of his career, as a painter of religious pictures, Champaigne executed a number of large altarpieces, which show his Flemish origins. This is especially true of such Rubens-inspired works as the Adoration of the Shepherds in the Wallace Collection, London. Later in life, Champaigne changed his art dramatically when he came under the influence of the religious Jansenist movement.

    Raffaelo Sorbi

    Biography : Raffaello Sorbi was born in Florence in 1844. As a young man, he studied design in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Florence; then painting under professor Antonio Ciseri. By the time he was 18 he had completed his first major work: Corso Donati mortally wounded is transported by the Monks of San Salvi to their Abbey, now on display at the Galleria d’ Arte Moderna in Florence. The painting won an award at the Florentine Triennale contest of 1861. Sorbi completed commissions for patrons in America and England. In 1863, he won a contest in Rome with the essay piece Savonarola explains the Bible to some friends in the Convent of San Marco. He was unable to make use of the stipend attached to the prize. In Florence, he exhibited a work depicting Riccarda Donati kidnapped from the Convent of Santa Chiara, by her brother Corso. Sorbi completed a St. Catherine of Siena before an angry Florentine mob after concluding peace with the Pope, by commission for Signore Marches Calro Torrigiani. His painting of Imelde de Lambertazzi e Bonifazio Geremei was sold to Wilhelm Metzler of Frankfurt, Germany. In 1869, the sculptor Giovanni Duprè visited Sorbi’s studio, and commissioned a Phidias sculpts the Minerva Statue. After painting this work, Sorbi produced mainly small canvases such as the present composition, sold through the Goupil Gallery of Paris. A number of these are of antique Roman (Neo-Pompeian) subjects or stories taken from the historical Tuscan past: Regatta in the Arno; Il Girotondo; Il Decamerone; The Florentine Concert; Il Triclinio; The Vestal Virgins exit the Amphitheater after the spectacle; Il venditore di terre cotte; A family scene under a pristyle; Cornelia mother of the Gaius and Tiberius Gracchus. Other paintings are genre scenes in 18th-century dress and finery. Among his works, Lo Corsa delle carrette nel Circo and Il seraglio agli sposi, were bought by the Silley Family of London, and Le Maggiiolate was acquired by Signor Egis Detailed Description : Boarding the Carriage, Florence oil on canvas 14 by 11 inches (35.5 by 28 cm.) signed and dated lower right: ‘Raf.
