Written expert's report Giancarlo Sestieri from Rome

Jacob Roos is one of the best animalier painters active in Naples at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Our work reveals its aesthetic value and sensitivity to participate in that Rococo landscape for the modern, serene and Arcadian atmosphere. Jacob is the eldest son of Philip Peter Roos. (G. Bocchi - U.Bocchi, Viadana, pp. 277 - 280, f. JR.1) and participant in the workshop whose progenitor was Johann Henrich Roos. Born in Rome, he learned the art from his father (documented in Italy since 1680) and was influenced by the Capitoline landscape taste, according to a path similar to that carried out by Brandi, who De Dominici says was present in the Eternal City at a young age ( B. De Dominici, Lives of the Neapolitan painters, Naples 1742, III, pp. 560-65). The artist's catalog is still sparse, whose works reveal a refined narrative taste, with modulated light effects and a full-bodied and chromatically lively draft. 

Rose Philip Peter, called Rosa da Tivoli. - Painter (Frankfurt am Main 1655 o 1657 - Rome 1706), son and pupil of Johann Heinrich. In 1677 he left for Rome, where he was a pupil of G. Brandi, whose daughter he married in 1681; he then settled in Tivoli. He was very active especially as a painter of animals, taken in the foreground on landscape backgrounds and performed with rich color and intense lighting effects. Works in numerous museums (Florence, Uffizi; Madrid, Prado; Kassel, Hessisches Landesmuseum; Dresden, Gemäldegalerie).
