Francesco Londonio (1723-1783), was a great artist of the eighteenth century. He painted mainly for the Lombard aristocracy, excelled at paintings with life scenes and animals, as well as at pastoral paintings.
This painting is a wonderful study of lions, intended for lawyer Felice Biella, well-known jurisconsult, Minister of Napoleon and President of the Civil Court of Milan. His tomb is located in the Church of Carmine in Milan and, not by chance, the funeral ark is supported by two crouching lions.
Of considerable confirmatory importance are the coeval ink writings on the back of the work that read "Studi del Londonio" and "Al Citt. Avvoc. Felice Biella nella Contrada della Scala n. 950."
The painting is an oil on cardboard panel. Size: 35x40 cm; with gilded frame: 51x61 cm. Slight flaws.
