Description:
Oil on canvas. Tacito in the Annales tells the deail of Seneca's death wanted by Nero who was Seneca's pupil and who accused ihm of taking part in a conspiracy against him. This theme had been often painted because of the intense pathos that it tranmits: Seneca chose to suicide himself rather than being killed by an executioner and in the painting is represented on his deathbed with the doctor that is witnessing his death while he is dictating his last wishes and his wife Paolina is crying. The painting has several color drops that need to be restored. Displayed in a coeval gilded frame from 20th century.

Additional Information

Pittura:
La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.

Oil on canvas:
The oil painting is a painting technique using powder pigments mixed with bases in inert and oils.
