Description : Sinassi di Santi con Maria e Cristo in gloria e Arcangeli

Tempera on wood with metal riza, gilded in correspondence with the halos. The icon sees in the lower half a group of six saints, whose name is indicated in Greek characters, while in the upper part there are Mary and Jesus in Glory, flanked by archangels. The saints depicted are, from left to right: St. Gregory the Great, St. Basil the Great, St. John the bishop, St. Peter the apostle, St. Paul the apostle, St. Andrew the apostle, all important saints in the Orthodox commemorative liturgy. The figures are inscribed in a floral decoration. In the church of the first centuries, the synaxis (from Gr. Sýnaxis: assembly) was the meeting of the faithful for the reading of the sacred books and for the Eucharistic celebration. Sinassi therefore alludes to the presence of a group of people (angels, saints and saints, metropolitans and monks) who surround a central representation, therefore in iconographic art it corresponds to a group of saints or angels that surround Christ or the Madonna to glorify them. In the Orthodox liturgy such icons are usually exhibited and celebrated on the day following that of an important feast in which these Saints were co-protagonists. The icon has small diffuse color drops. Wooden reinforcement on the back. The riza is currently disassembled from the table, it requires a small intervention to get back into shape for reassembly.

Additional Information

Age:

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.

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.
