Description : Scena di lavoro sulla spiaggia

Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. The imposing scene describes the undertaking of hauling a boat ashore with a horse-drawn trailer: the six mighty beasts are the protagonists, located in pairs on different floors, while some fishermen arrange the tow ropes; sea, sky and beach are placed on three parallel lines, which also fade chromatically into each other; perpendicular to these lines, the flagpole of the boat, which creates the union between the three elements. Edgar Pierre Jozef Farasyn (his name also appears as "Edgard Farasyn" and "Edgard Farasijn".) Belgian artist trained in Antwerp where he then worked, he was a painter, watercolorist, engraver, graphic designer. I He initially painted scenes for children, but from 1885 he switched to painting in the open air, painting many city scenes and in the old fish market of Antwerp, but also many rural landscapes and views of the villages. Attracted by the sea, he stayed there regularly, creating many realistic scenes from the life of fishermen and their families. His early works were characterized by a realistic style, with rather gray and gloomy colors, and with a rigorous atmosphere. Later he moved on to a brighter use of color and a subtle representation of light. Due to its large size (unusual for the artist), the work presented here suggests a work for an important client. It is presented in a rich golden frame from the early 1900s.

Additional Information

Artist: Edgard Farasyn (1858-1938)

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.

Artistic technique: 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.
