Workshop of Leandro Bassano (1557-1622) - Sold

A Seasonal Allegory - Sold

An important late 16th century oil painting on canvas from the workshop of Leandro Bassano.  The hand is extremely close to Leandro Bassano (1557-1622) and although the present painting has an original composition the figure of the boy with the hare is taken from Seasonal Allegory with Adam and Eve in Auckland Art Gallery, New Zealand.  The painting in the Auckland Art Gallery dated to c.1580 was formerly attributed to Francesco Bassano until W. Arslan identified the traces of a signature in the bottom left-hand corner and re-attributed the painting to Leandro Bassano.  Allegories like the present painting were a speciality of the Bassano family.  Jacopo Bassano (1510–1592) worked for the most part in his home town of Bassano del Grappa, although he spent some time in Venice, and was influenced by Titian and Tintoretto, Parmigianino and later Veronese. He took their ideas back to Bassano, and as his sons became active in his workshop they too followed in their father's style. They often repeated the same figures, thereby making identification of some works extremely difficult.  The painting appears to be unsigned.
