Description : San Michele Arcangelo sconfigge il Demonio

Oil on canvas. The work is a copy of the famous painting by Guido Reni (1575-1642), made between 1635 and 1636 and currently kept inside the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini in Rome. The iconography of the work is based on the vision of St. John the Evangelist described in the Apocalypse in which he appeared "... an angel who came down from heaven with the key of the Abyss and a large chain in his hand [... which ...] grabbed the dragon, the ancient serpent - that is, the devil, satan - and chained him ... ". The work, in the strongly Baroque original of great intensity and strength, is here taken up with fidelity and good rendering, although the colors are less brilliant and the dimensions reduced, to the detriment of the great wings of the archangel and the background of the rocky landscape of the underworld. The work, restored and relined, is presented in a frame from the early 1900s.

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.
