Description:
Oil on canvas. Inside a large woodland landscape, animated by figures of commoners, there is a squad of soldiers of the National Guard who are escorting two men under arrest in the centre. The scene refers to episodes that happened frequently during the Renaissance, like the historically documented and portrayed arrest of Ugo Bassi and of captain Livraghi, patriots in support of Garibaldi. Even if it is an historical subject, the portrayal leaves room mostly for the landscape element, which fills the whole scene and is portrayed in great detail. There is a signature "L. Corsi" bottom right: a painter from Florence called Luisa Corsi (born in 1830) is well known, but she is mostly well known for her miniatures. On the back of the painting there is an antique label of an inventory. In an antique frame from the 19th 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.
