Oil on board. Signature and date at the bottom left. On the back there is a stamp of "Domenico De Bernardi-Besozzo" and authenticity. De Bernardi's painting is part of the 19th and 20th century Lombard landscape tradition. He always lived in Besozzo, his birthplace in the province of Varese, but travelled extensively in and out of Italy, gathering impressions and searching for new landscapes to revive them in his work. In particular, he gained new inspiration from a trip to Libya in the 1930s, from which he returned with a more lively and Mediterranean palette. Landscape painting was his favourite genre, but he was also often attracted to 'still life' with equally significant results. The small landscape presented here is a view of hills with higher peaks in the background, perhaps the artist's native pre-Alpine areas; a small village fills the centre of the scene, in which the widespread fences of the crops stand out in particular. The painting comes in a coeval frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Domenico De Bernardi (1892-1963)

Age: XX Century - from 1901 to 2000

The twentieth century is characterized by the prevalence of the bourgeoisie over the working class and by the discovery that life continues to be a struggle for survival and to improve its quality. Technological progress, instead of favoring this development, becomes an instrument of mechanization and drying up of man, who needs to look for a "soul supplement" and new forms to express it. Therefore, a whole series of artistic currents are born that create works expressing the interiority of man, which evoke reality from within rather than represent it, and depict it using, freely, shapes and colors. We therefore have Decadentism with Art Nouveau, Matisse and Braque's Fauvism, Picasso's Cubism, then Expressionism with Munch, Kandinskij's Abstractionism and Metaphysical painting by Carrà and De Chirico. There are numerous currents and groups of artists and intellectuals who use Art as a Manifesto of their thought, often also with a political connotation.

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.
