In the seventeenth century, art was strongly conditioned by the religious problem: the Church was still one of the greatest patrons of works of art and used them to fascinate and impress the faithful, exalting salvation, reachable only with fidelity to the Church. 17th century art is therefore an educational tool, produced to be enjoyed and understood by many. Thus, the scenes that face the representation of an imaginary reality are accompanied by the analysis of the details and the great clarity of the environment, in order to propose every fiction as real and with the intention of emotionally involving the observer, making him live. in a subjective way an infinite and grandiose reality, also reflects the artist's desire to express himself freely: in fact he does not bend to pre-established schemes, he does not use rigid, contained forms, organized in rigorous compositional symmetries, but free, open and articulated forms . The art of the 1600s is therefore a representation, the purpose of which is to impress, move, persuade; it is the product of the imagination and its purpose is to persuade that something not real can become real. This complex artistic phenomenon is traditionally defined as Baroque, and its birth takes place in Rome between the third and fourth decade of the seventeenth century, where it is eminently represented by the work of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Francesco Borromini and Pietro da Cortona. , even if the fundamental junction is constituted by the work of Caravaggio. The movement then spread throughout Italy and Europe (we remember in particular Rembrandt, Rubens, Velazquez), in the world of arts, literature, music, and in numerous other areas, until the mid-18th century.

Technical specification: Etching (etching in the cable)

Etching (in Latin as aqua fortis) was once used to describe the nitric acid, also called stain. Today it refers to a type of printing and the way to produce it. The etching technique was known since ancient times and was used for engraving decorations on weapons. Some of the first to use it for fine art prints have been Albrecht Dürer in Germany and Parmigianino in Italy.
