Oil painting on canvas. The composition places some musical elements in the centre, a mandolin and a musical score, accompanied by other closed volumes, a copper vase with flowers on the left, while on the right there is a richly worked ceramic and embossed metal teapot, in front of a plate of figs. The composition is completed by some fabrics, arranged both on the support surface and as a curtain in the background. The rich composition of different elements was meant to be a sort of extension of the rooms in which the work was placed. The painting has been restored and relined. It is presented in a period frame, with defects.

Additional Information

Age: 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.

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.
