Novelli, Pietro

Monreale, Sicily (Italy), 1603 - Palermo, Sicily (Italy), 1647

Monrealese trained first with his father, Pietro Antonio Novell (1568-1625), and subsequently, in 1618, with Vito Carrera (1555-1623) in Palermo. His earliest dated work, painted in 1626, depicts St. Anthony Abbot (Palermo, S. Antonio Abate), and this, along with many other works throughout Monrealese's career, shows the influence of Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641), who had visited Sicily two years earlier. At the beginning of the 1630s, he visited Rome and Naples, where he was exposed to further influences: he studied in Rome the works of Raphael (1483-1520), Michelangelo (1475-1564) and, most particularly, Caravaggio (1571-1610), while in Naples he enjoyed contact with Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652). Monrealese returned to Sicily in 1637 and shortly thereafter painted Judith and Holofernes (Naples, Palazzo Reale), which clearly shows the influence of Ribera. Also around this time he executed various fresco cycles, such as that depicting the Life of Vicere Monçada (1637-1640; Palermo, Palazzo Normanni). In his final year, Monrealese painted the Presentation in the Temple and the Marriage of the Virgin for S. Matteo, Palermo (1647) (Turner, N.: From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci. A century of Italian drawings from the Prado, Art Services International-Museo Nacional del Prado, 2008, p. 194).
