Description : Veduta di riviera ligure

Oil on canvas. At the bottom right there is a trace of the signature; on the back a cartouche with the painter's signature and another with the title of the work "A construction site, Riviera di Levante, near Recco". The foreshortening of the Riviera describes the construction site of a large boat, it would seem a vessel, on the beach near the town; several popular figures animate the scene: women washing clothes, the cart carrying some materials, the carpenters, fishermen near their boats on the right; the whole beach around the boat is occupied by the wood used, while the classic Ligurian promontory stands out in the background, occupied by the green hill. Giovanni Battista Ceruti was born and died in Milan, where he exhibited on several occasions; of its production only a few works are known, all of which are marine views. The painting has a slight tear in the upper left. It is presented in a gilded frame from the late 19th century.

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.

Technical specification: Oil on canvas
