Description : L'Annunciazione

Oil on the table. Lombard school of the first half of the 18th century. Large in size, the painting is made on two thick walnut boards, joined by wooden wedges. The choice of support suggests that the production is peripheral, probably from the valley. The scene sees the archangel Gabriel who, from the open skies from which other angels emerge, presents himself to Mary, kneeling in meditation. Particular is the message of the announcement ("Spiritus Sanctus superveniet in Te", or "The Holy Spirit descends on you") that comes out of the Angel's mouth, surmounted by the dove, an effigy of the Spirit of God; moreover the Angel holds in his hand a lily, symbol of purity, in this case of the Virginity of Mary which is preserved. The painting shows traces of previous clumsy restorations, small drops of color and damage to the panels (widespread signs of wormhole). Presented in a stylish frame.

Additional Information

Art School: Lombard school

Time: XVIII Century - from 1701 to 1800

In the century of the Enlightenment, or the exaltation of reason and science as the only tools that can free man from ignorance and the yoke of the Church and the nobility, art passes from the intent of the Baroque to tell religious truths or to imitate nature, with strong chiaroscuro contrasts and artificial excesses, to the lighter and more vaporous forms (sometimes even frivolous and affected) of the so-called Barocchetto or Rococò, to lead to Neoclassicism which, looking at the ancient art of the Greeks and Romans, wants to re-propose the discovery of beauty, in the search for harmony, proportions, balances.

Subject: Sacred subject

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.
