Ferdinando Cavalleri (1794-1865) "Lady playing harp", important oil painting!!, 1830
Housed in its original frame, this painting is a relatively small portrait of an aristocratic lady wearing a fashionable turban, who is depicted while playing harp. It is a clearly signed and dated work of well-known Roman artist of the 1st half of the 19th century, Ferdinando Cavalleri.
Ferdinando Cavalleri was born on March 16, 1794 in Rome. In 1806-1808, he studied at the Turin Liceo Pubblico under Giuseppe Monticone; later, in Turin, he studied at the Accademia Albertina under Francesco Bonsignore and - from 1806 - at the School of Pietro Benvenuti in Florence. From 1811, he permanently lived in Rome and continued to enhance his education under Gaspare Landi and Vincenzo Camuccini. For his 1815 portrait of Carlo Alberto of Piedmont, Cavalleri received Turin State Scholarship, which was later extended until 1822. He then dedicated himself to historical paintings and portraits. In 1828, he became an Honorary Member of both Turin and Florence academies; in 1831 - an Honorary Member of Accademia di San Luca (Rome). Besides that, he was appointed a court artist of Piedmont-Savoy. In 1832, he was awarded the Civil Order of Savoy; in 1842 - Order of St. Sylvester of Vatican. In the same period, he became also an Honorary Member of academies of Naples and Lisbon.
