Description : Bimbe al lavoro

Oil painting on canvas. Signed lower left. The Veronese artist proposes an outdoor scene, in the farmyard in front of the farmhouse: three girls, seated on the ground, are intent on collecting the grains of wheat that have remained attached to the straw: raising their gaze, serious and contrite, to observe the spectator of their work. The brightness of the scene stands out, coming from the right, where the sun's rays filter through and reverberate on the colorful dresses of the girls, while on the left two tall plants provide shade. The artist uses a quick brushstroke, with a light and rapid touch, characteristic of an plein air painting, or live painting, which spread in the first half of the twentieth century. The work is presented in a frame from the early 1900s.

Additional Information

Artist: Biagio Milanese (1886-1968)

Born in Albaredo D'Adige (Verona) in 1886, Biagio Milanese later worked in Milan. He was a landscape painter (he proposed glimpses of the Venetian lagoon and the Lombard places he lived in), but also the author of genre scenes, popular settings, live shots, a follower of en plein air painting that spread in the first half of the twentieth century. Milanese died in Milan in 1968.

Age: XX Century - from 1901 to 2000

The twentieth century is characterized by the prevalence of the bourgeoisie over the working class and by the discovery that life continues to be a struggle for survival and to improve its quality. Technological progress, instead of favoring this development, becomes an instrument of mechanization and drying up of man, who needs to look for a "soul supplement" and new forms to express it. Therefore, a whole series of artistic currents are born that create works expressing the interiority of man, which evoke reality from within rather than represent it, and depict it using, freely, shapes and colors. We therefore have Decadentism with Art Nouveau, Matisse and Braque's Fauvism, Picasso's Cubism, then Expressionism with Munch, Kandinskij's Abstractionism and Metaphysical painting by Carrà and De Chirico. There are numerous currents and groups of artists and intellectuals who use Art as a Manifesto of their thought, often also with a political connotation.

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.
