Works   |   Exhibitions featuring Gabriele Ricciardelli
Ricciardelli (flourished 1743/1782) was born in Naples, came to Dublin for a brief period in 1753, where one of his patrons was Ralph Howard, Viscount Wicklow. Four view of Naples by the artist were included in the Shelton Abbey sale of 1950. Ricciardelli also worked for Thomas Dawson, Lord Dartrey,  before spending some years in England. It is known that he was commissioned to work for Dublin's Rotunda Hospital - a commission he never completed - though both his works in the Drogheda Muncipal Art Collection appear to be dated from around 1754/1755, evidenced by the inclusion of the newly constructed St. Peter's Chuch of Ireland (View of Drogheda from Ballsgrove) and other architectural features. He painted portraits and landscapes, it is for the later that he is better known to-day. His Irish scenes being distinguished by his excellently accurate portrayal of architectural features.
