British Museum - Francesco Salviati Female Nude Framed Print & Mount, 76 x 86cm, Brown
Product code: 77520202
A reproduction life drawing print of a seated female nude by Florentine artist Francesco Salviati, from the British Museum. Made in the UK, this print is supplied mounted, glazed and framed in a slim antique champagne frame, ready to hang on your wall.
The original drawing depicted in this print is believed to have been made during Salviati's later years when the artist was in France, from 1554-6. Salviati spent most of his career in Rome after 1531, though with periods in Florence and north Italy 1539-48, and in France 1554-6. Sometimes also called Cecchino Salviati - the name Salviati comes from that of his patron Cardinal Giovanni Salviati who took him into his service in 1531 after his arrival in Rome. Peripatetic throughout his career, Salviati was first a pupil in Florence of Andrea del Sarto, but after a period of less than two years went to Rome, where he was much influenced by the Roman works of Michelangelo and Raphael, as well as by the works of Perino del Vaga (1501-47) and Parmigianino (1503-40). It is believed that this drawing may have been made during Salviati's later years when the artist was in France, because of the slight similarity to certain of the nude figures by Primaticcio (1504-70) at Fontainebleau. There is a group of similar drawings in black chalk, handled in much the same way as this one, in the Louvre.
Founded in 1753, the British Museum was the first national public museum in the world. From the outset, it was a museum of the world, for the world, and this idea still lies at the heart of the museum’s mission today. The collection tells the stories of cultures across the world, from the dawn of human history, over two million years ago, to the present.
