LUCENTE, R. [ and other family members]  Cotrone, Italy [now Crotone]. Album of circa 55 drawings and watercolours, circa 1890-1900. Images pasted into an album which has recently been rebound (using largely recovered materials from contemporary bindings). All edges gilt. Approx 27 cm x 18 cm. The images consist of portraits, architectural  details, classical scenes, designs for book plates, and items relating to Cotrone . Amongst the portraits are pencil drawings of Danish artist Gabriel Jensen [b.1862] and a very accomplished pencil portrait  signed C[amillo] Ricelli ( Ricelli family members are recorded from Cotrone). A Raffaele Lucente was a doctor, politician and mayor of Cotrone for three terms, but we cannot be certain that he was the artist who made the majority of the drawings, or another family member. 

An unusual album from the Italian Art Nouveau period.
