Description : Scena bacchica

Oil on canvas. Northern European School. The painting in calm tones proposes to the viewer, personified by the figure of the man at the bottom right who observes climbing a tree branch, a scene of orgiastic entertainment between men and women in a landscape that evokes Eden with free animals and in peace (the peacock, the rabbits ..). Among the others, on the left a child is playing with soap bubbles: the intent to contrast the transience of life with the pleasures of the senses is evident; high up in the clouds, a deity observes the scene, Chronos, the god of time, who with his scythe underlines human mortality. A label on the frame attributes the work to the Flemish Philippe-Augustin Immenraet (1627-1679), due to the proximity of the landscape subject to his style. The work, restored and relined, has a central color drop. It is presented in a stylish 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
