The nineteenth century also saw a large production of graphic, pictorial and sculptural artistic works, often presented in the Viscontea auction catalogs.
Worth mentioning in particular are a view of the Old Theater of Taormina by Francesco Lojacono (Palermo, 1838-1915), a Conversation in the garden by Giacomo Favretto, the oil painting on canvas "Giovincella sulla spiaggia (Marina luce di luna)" by Plino Nomellini and several works by Telemaco Signorini.
Among the sculptures put up for auction, however, a mention goes to the large Florentine school sculpture in white Carrara marble depicting the Laocoon, as well as the bronze "Cantante a spasso" by Medardo Rosso, with authentication on a photograph by Luciano Caramel, and the "Indian Knight", also in bronze, by Paolo Troubetzkoy.
