Josef Grassi (1758-1838)-Attrib. "Portrait of a lady", high quality pastel!! late 1790s
6000 EUR - 50% DISCOUNT = 3000,00 EUR
Made in late 1790s pastel portrait of an unknown noblewoman. It shows a very strong resemblance to works of well-known Austro-German artist Josef Grassi (who as shows our image nr.7 worked also in pastel technique).
Josef (Giuseppe) Grassi was born ca 1758 in an Italian family de Grassi, which lived in Vienna from the 17th century. In 1768, aged ten (!), he began studying at the Vienna Academy, and very soon achieved great success, especially among women, as a skilled portraitist, miniaturist and later as painter of larger portraits in oil. In 1791 Grassi was admitted as member to the Vienna Academy for his portrait works. Already in 1790, though, he moved to Poland. In Warsaw, on the recommendation of J.-B. Lampi, he got the vacancy of a painter at the court of the Polish King Stanislaus August II. In 1793, upon Lampi's return to Vienna, Grassi advanced to the favorite portraitist of Polish court and high aristocracy.
