Description : Paesaggio con pastori ed armenti

Oil on canvas. The large scene, set in a hilly countryside, with a village and ruins in the background on the left, is completely occupied by the compact group of numerous living figures: the shepherd's family sitting in the center, observing the companion who holds the child in her arms in swaddling clothes; all around, the animals, from the faithful shepherd dog to the beasts of the flock, sheep, goats and cows, also at rest. The great naturalism of the animal figures stands out, which refers as a pictorial modality to the works of the school of Philipp Peter Roos, known as Rosa da Tivoli (1657-1706), the German painter considered one of the best painter of animals active in Italy in the seventeenth century, characterized by the peculiar ability to evoke the fleece and the looks of animals. The work, restored and relined, is presented in a gilded style 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.
