Description : Ritratto di giovane donna

Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. The beautiful portrait features a rosy face framed in a cloud of white, that of a fluffy fur collar that fades into the background of almost the same color. It is of great efficacy and emotional intensity: light in the colors and in the fluffiness of the strokes, rendered with rapid brushstrokes and without outlines, it contrasts the almost childish charm of the pink bow in the hair, with the intense and brooding gaze of the young woman. Another female portrait made by Aleardo Villa in 1892 and sold at auction in London in 1995, which features the same woman seated in the same white dress, has been considered and titled as a portrait of the great actress Eleonora Duse. Appreciated painter, illustrator and advertiser, Villa studied under the direction of Bertini at the Brera Academy. Very skilled in portraying the faces and the female figure, sensual and dressed in fashion, towards the end of his career Villa abandoned painting to devote himself exclusively to advertising graphics: he was appreciated poster designer at the Officine Grafiche Ricordi in Milan. The painting is presented in a contemporary frame.

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
