Description : Ritratto di uomo con cane

Oil painting on canvas. Lombard school of the seventeenth century. The gentleman is portrayed standing, life-size, inside the house; he rests his right hand on a small table covered with red velvet, under a window that opens onto a large river landscape. Near his feet, on the left, the faithful dog, also in a dignified and composed pose; the rich golden and worked metal collar stands out at its neck, embellished with a pendant with a hard stone. The black suit in which the man is dressed almost completely merges with the dark and dark background of the room, if not for the reflections on the sleeves of the light that enters through the window and for the delicate white lace of the ruff and cuffs that frame the rosy complexion of the face and hands. The qualitative rendering of the work is remarkable, in particular in the face, well defined in its features and expressive, as well as in the anatomical features of the animal, whose gaze is as intense and penetrating as that of the owner. The portrait is part of that extensive portrait production that from the end of the sixteenth century becomes, in Lombardy in particular with Moroni, no longer just an official and elite presentation of important characters, but a representation of people in their naturalness, in their true essence, portrayed in less static poses and in less official environments. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a beautiful carved and gilded wooden 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.
