Works included in this catalogue
* Provaggi The Minstrel {1876} Loc? [WT]
* Provaggi The Nephew {1876} Loc? [WT]

The two watercolours acquired for the pre-Felton collection were presumably typical of Provaggi’s tourist output. They were bought at the same time as views of Rome by Campi.

Other examples by Provaggi, still changing hands on the European art market for modest sums, are slight, washy, illustrative genre pieces. An example is reproduced here.

[comparative work: Scene con personaggi in costume troubadour (auctioned 2012)]
