Additional Information

Artist: Domenico Induno (1815-1878)

Born in Milan in 1815, Domenico Induno enrolled at the Brera Academy when he was still sixteen, where he found masters such as Luigi Sabatelli and Pompeo Marchesi (who appreciated the qualities of the young artist so much that they bought his drawings) and Francesco Hayez, who would have constituted for there. an essential and lasting point of reference. From the beginning, the course of study of the I. it was dotted with accolades. From 1837 the painter began to exhibit at the annual exhibitions of Brera, winning in 1839 the grand prize of painting of the Academy, which earned him a gold medal, exemption from Austrian military service and a prestigious artistic commission, or the commission of a canvas for Ferdinand I, (The Prophet Samuel anoints King Saul), who went to enrich the Imperial Galleries of Vienna). From the very beginning the salient features of his artistic personality were highlighted, in particular his natural ease of execution, associated with marked narrative qualities, a strong realist inclination, mastery in drawing, compositional mastery, a classicist taste, however open to pathos and to the historical epic of romanticism. Francesco Hayez himself took the young Induno to heart and followed him in his artistic training, both by putting him in contact with the main collectors and art lovers of Milan, and by directing his talent also towards the genre of the portrait, - which, while occupying a rather marginal role in his production, he was able to create with marked personality and remarkable executive finesse. In the second half of the fifth decade, genre scenes, linked to the observation of ordinary and daily life, began to become more and more frequent in the works of Induno, within a particularly lively critical debate in the 1930s and 1940s. history painting (with a noble theme and linked to the past) and genre painting (with a realist and modern subject), relating to ethical and didactic value. For Induno these were years of growing notoriety, success and economic well-being, during which the I. he began to exhibit continuously also at the Promoters of Florence, Turin and Genoa. He also achieved an authority and a conspicuous following among the younger painters both in terms of technical peculiarities and in terms of thematic predilections, partly generating a wave of affectionately intimate and melancholy genre scenes.

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.
