Lot 4007

$1900

Details: This lot is a Circa 16th C pen and ink preliminary drawing of The Sacrifice of Isaac attributed to Jacopo da Empoli (born Chimenti). Empoli executed an oil painting of the same subject in the 1590s. The drawing is roughly 10" by 8", matted, and in a 16" by 12" frame.

Jacopo da Empoli (30 April 1551 – 30 September 1640) was an Italian Florentine Reformist painter.
Born in Florence as Jacopo Chimenti (Empoli being the birthplace of his father), he worked mostly in his native city. He apprenticed under Maso da San Friano. Like his contemporary in Counter-Maniera (Counter-Mannerism), Santi di Tito, he moved into a style often more crisp, less contorted, and less crowded than mannerist predecessors like Vasari. He collaborated with Alessandro Tiarini in some projects. His brother, Domenico Chimenti (1554-1640) born in Empoli, was also a painter. Among his pupils were Felice Ficherelli, Giovanni Battista Brazzč (Il Bigio), Giovanni Battista Vanni, and Virgilio Zaballi.
Finally, working in a thematic often shunned by Florentine painters, after the 1620s he completed a series of exceptional still-life paintings
