Description : San Giovanni Battista

Oil on canvas. John the Baptist was represented, wrapped in the traditional animal skin, seated on a rock contemplating the crucifix; at the bottom right, a source of water, a baptismal symbol, gushes out of the rock. His traditional iconographic signs then appear, witnesses of his missionary peculiarities, although the pose of the saint is atypical, more contemplative than that of a preacher. The pictorial modalities are close to the Spanish school of derivation to Murillo, the greatest Spanish artist of the religious baroque, who permeated his figures with an intense psychological interpretation. The painting, restored and relined, is presented in an ancient coeval frame, with small shortcomings.

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.
