Wild boar hunting
Wild boar hunting
Oil on canvas.

Oil painting on canvas. A large landscape of hilly countryside, with the river flowing to the left, sees some small popular figures on the path to the right, travelers in conversation. The painting has undergone color cleaning. It is presented in a contemporary frame.
Oil on canvas. The composition is not a traditional still life because the fruit (grapes and apples) and the bird are inserted in a large landscape, as its added elements in the foreground; Behind them opens a verdant countryside with a village on the hill. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a period frame.
Oil on canvas. A seduction scene is described on a country path: a standing young woman shows her body to the man sitting to rest with her partner; while he looks away, his wife looks sorrowfully at the young harlot, holding her partner by the hand. Other travelers appear on the path. Perhaps of allegorical significance, the painting underlines the contrast between the freshness, brightness and ardor of the young female body, whose beauty is flaunted, and the ill-defined, bundled, almost hidden shape of the two elderly bodies. On the back of the painting there is a hypothesis of attribution to Giuseppe Gambarini (1680-1725) in pencil. Despite the dubious attribution, the painting is well done in the pictorial quality and in the rendering of the subject. Restored and relined, it is presented in a re-adapted antique frame.
Oil on canvas. The large scene is set at the entrance of a village near a stop for horses: numerous horsemen are standing with their animals, which are looked after by the servants and the peasants who fill the manger with hay; one of the servants, on the right, lets the animals drink in the nearby stream. In the background, the houses of the village arranged along the river, which then flows into the hilly landscape on the right. It probably is a piece by a Flemish author working in Lombardy. Some references to clothing and construction certainly indicate the Northern European contamination, while other details indicate it was realized in a Lombard location. The painting comes from a prestigious historical residence of a Lombard noble family Still on the first canvas, it has some cuts in the lower band. It is presented in a thin coeval frame.
Oil on canvas. Northern European School. The painting in calm tones proposes to the viewer, personified by the figure of the man at the bottom right who observes climbing a tree branch, a scene of orgiastic entertainment between men and women in a landscape that evokes Eden with free animals and in peace (the peacock, the rabbits ..). Among the others, on the left a child is playing with soap bubbles: the intent to contrast the transience of life with the pleasures of the senses is evident; high up in the clouds, a deity observes the scene, Chronos, the god of time, who with his scythe underlines human mortality. A label on the frame attributes the work to the Flemish Philippe-Augustin Immenraet (1627-1679), due to the proximity of the landscape subject to his style. The work, restored and relined, has a central color drop. It is presented in a stylish frame.
Oil on pressed cardboard. Signed lower right. On the back the title. Originally from Mantua but artistically trained at the Brera Academy, as a pupil of Cesare Tallone, Lino Baccarini exhibited at the Milanese Biennale and then throughout Italy, distinguishing himself above all as a portraitist, even with famous personalities. The work proposes a landscape of cultivated plain, with a line of wagons of wanderers that advance slowly on the road in the middle of the fields. It is presented in a stylish frame.
Snowy Landscape with Figures 1872
Snowy Landscape with Figures 1872
Oil on canvas. Signed, dated 1872 and located in Parma in the lower right corner. It is a large winter landscape with a strong scenic impact, which fits well into the scenographic traditionalism of the painting of Mentore Silvani, a native artist of Traversetolo (Parma), a landscape painter but also known as a set designer. In the scene, sprinkled with the white of a short snowfall that creates that typical rarefied and silent winter atmosphere, between bare and dry trees, a dirt road winds its way through by a traveler; on the right a dilapidated building with a wash house where a woman draws water; in the center a small column on which a sacred image is mounted. Trained in his hometown, Silvani participated in the exhibitions of the Encouragement of Parma starting from 1864, and it is mainly in his city that his works are found today (at the Municipality of Parma, the National Gallery, the Paolo Toschi artistic high school ); however, he also exhibited in Milan (1872) and Florence (1875). Trained as a scenographer at the school of Gerolamo Magnani, Silvani held this position in Parma but also in Venice starting from 1871. His pictorial production, which includes mainly rural landscapes of the Parma countryside, is always characterized by fidelity to reality. The work proposed here is presented in a contemporary frame.
Landscape with Figures at the River
Landscape with Figures at the River
Oil on canvas. The wide landscape is centered on the river that flows into the valley rich in vegetation. Along its course, in the foreground, some women are washing clothes. The pictorial features, fast and not very aggregated, refer to the production of Antonio Francesco Peruzzini, belonging to a family of painters originally from Pesaro, including his father Domenico and his sons Giovanni, Antonio Francesco and Paolo, active in the Marche region and in Italian cities such as Rome. Bologna, Turin and Milan, during the seventeenth century and the first quarter of the eighteenth. Antonio Francesco's production is often associated with that of his brother Giovanni, having the two worked together. Antonio Francesco specialized in landscape painting, under the influence of Salvator Rosa and landscape architects such as Pietro Montanini and Pandolfo Reschi, and further influences also came from Nordic painters active in Italy, especially from Pieter Mulier known as il Tempesta. In his first works the originality of his painting is already distinguished given a rapid drafting and an intense and brilliant chromatic stamp. From the beginning of the nineties the long artistic bond between Antonio Francesco Peruzzini and Alessandro Magnasco began, following their meeting in Milan, where Peruzzini had settled; from this period onwards his painting seems to fall apart, through forms that become more dynamic and light, almost fantastic, to finally arrive at a style marked by an ever greater disintegration of the forms of nature and their movement. Restored and relined, the work is presented in an early 20th century frame.
The Country Road
The Country Road
Oil on hardboard. Signed lower left. Having moved as a child with his family to Milan in 1898, still very young, Raoul Viviani enrolled at the Brera Academy, where he studied under the guidance of Giuseppe Mentessi (1857-1931). At the same time he attended the nude school of the Artistic Family, with which he exhibited for the first time at the age of 17, immediately enjoying great success with the public and critics, as a landscape painter with a strong personality and modernity and for his highly original style characterized from strong chromatic experiments. In 1912 he participated in the Venice Biennale and subsequently participated in numerous national and international exhibitions. From 1926 he began his career in the field of art criticism, writing for various newspapers, but his opposition to fascism led him to choose voluntary exile: in 1931 he moved to Uruguay, where he founded and directed the Academy of Montevideo Fine Arts. Returning to Milan in 1937, he resumed his activity as a painter and as a critic. In the 1950s he moved to Rapallo for health reasons and remained there until his death. Extremely original landscape painter, who engages in oil painting but also in watercolor and engraving, is very close to pointillist painting, however, developing his own personal technique, characterized by very thin filaments of color in the form of thin commas, which define the structures of the its landscapes. With his transfer to Liguria, the Ligurian landscape becomes the protagonist of his works and also his mute technique, moving away from the original pointillism to open up to a broad and summary brushstroke, which finally leads to a production of still lifes from violent and contrasting colors. In this work in which the technical characteristic of Viviani is well appreciated, along the country path that runs along the canal, a figure of a woman appears, which constitutes an exception in his production, usually lacking in figurative elements. Work in frame.
