Oil on the table. signed lower left. An orientalist subject who proposes the Arab coffee as a place also responsible for smoking the hookah, an activity in which two men are intent: the scene is set outdoors, in front of the vaulted entrance to the room, with the minaret in the background. The work is part of the most characteristic production of Fabio Fabbi, a Bolognese painter who, following his travels to the East starting from 1886, devoted himself almost exclusively to this pictorial genre, in which he was able to associate the themes of exoticism and travel with a quick and lively sketching. From the early 1900s, Fabbi also devoted himself to a career as an illustrator, illustrating numerous novels of classical literature, but preferring those of adventure, in particular the Salgarian novels, in which he was able to express his passion for exoticism. The proposed work is presented in a style frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Fabio Fabbi (1861-1946)

Time: XIX Century - from 1801 to 1900

The revolutions in Europe between the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, accelerating social, political and economic changes, favor the birth of a new artistic movement, Romanticism, which places sentiment and love of country and that, detaching itself from the forms of Neoclassicism, proposes a style that shows the deep emotions of man, aroused by real life. In particular, in painting, historical subjects, scenes of popular life and patriotic struggle, the landscape as an expression of love for nature and orientalist subjects are imposed. To express emotions and feelings, we begin to use bright colors, the outlines are blurred, the contrasts of lights increase, to then progressively arrive at a painting, with the Macchiaioli first and then with the Impressionists, "en plein air", pure exaltation of emotions, chromatic effects, subjective impressions.

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.
