Jakab Marastoni (1804-1860)-School "Greek Woman", oil on canvas, ca. 1850
This Biedermeier painting is obviously a work of one of the pupils of well-known Italo-Hungarian artist of the 1st half of the 19th century, Jakab Marastoni. It is a replica of latter's famous painting "Greek woman" (now in Budapest National Gallery (see our image nr.8).
Giacomo (in Hungary: Jakab) Marastoni was born in 1804 in Venice and died in 1860 in Budapest. From 1819 he studied at the Venetian Academy of Fine Art where he obtained eighteen (!) prizes. In 1830 he stayed in Rome, then returned to Venice. There his main competitors (working in the same style) were Natale Schiavoni and latter's sons Giovanni and Felice which did not allow him to have a great clientele. As a result he left Venice in 1832 and travelled to Gorizia (North-East of Italy), Triest, Klagenfurt and Vienna. In 1836, simultaneously with his future competitor in Hungary, Miklos Barabas, he settled in Pest (Budapest) but he regularly travelled through provinces where he had numerous commissions (Sopron, Poszony, Siebenbürgen etc.).
