Description : Scorcio marino con pescatori

Oil painting on canvas. Signed F. Pratella on the lower left. In the Gulf of Naples, identifiable by the Vesuvius in the background, on a sandy stretch of coast a group of fishermen with their women pull the boats ashore. Light and colors fill the atmosphere of the scene. The Neapolitan artist Fausto Pratella, son of Attilio, initially followed his father's leave, painting marine full of light and movement, like the one proposed here, but soon wanted to depart from Attilio's wake, choosing different subjects and techniques, which led him to paint the cold peripheral parks of Milan, bringing in his canvases the evocative visions of those greens, those grays, those browns saturated with that humid and foggy vapidity typically Lombard. The painting is presented in a styled frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Fausto Pratella (1886-1964)

Born in Naples, son of the well-known painter Attilio, Fausto Pratella trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in his hometown, making his debut at a very young age in the pictorial manifestations of the city. Initially inspired by his father's production, he ventured into "marine" rich in colors and light, but soon, taking advantage of the stimuli of his own individual resources, Fausto Pratella was not slow to show, among the immediate currents of the young generation, not only the ability of an artist open to the most coveted evolutionary principles, but the talent of an eclectic and instinctive character.After the First World War in which he actively participated reporting the impairment of health, on the push towards ideation and research in art, he chose to move to Milan , where he worked for about twenty years, penetrating into the cold peripheral parks of Milan and bringing in his canvases the suggestive visions of those greens, those grays, those browns saturated with that humid and foggy vapidity typically Lombard. The works of this period, almost all developed in large dimensions, ensured him considerable prestige in the high spheres of Milanese art, during the national and international events in which he participated.

Artistic technique: Pittura

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
