The Announcement Oil on Canvas Italy XVII Century

Oil painting on canvas. Northern Italian school of the seventeenth century. The two protagonists, kneeling Mary and the Archangel Gabriel, fill the scene, the background of which is just blurred in the divine light that radiates from the Holy Spirit descending from heaven. The only furnishing elements are the sewing basket and the ball on the floor, which brings back the humanity of Mary, while the angel holds the lily, symbol of purity, in his hand. Restored and relined, the painting has some small drops of color and marked cracking. It is presented in a gilded frame from the end of the 19th century.

A Sacrifice to Venus

Watercolor on paper. At the bottom left the name Giuseppe Cades, Although on the back, in addition to the attribution, the title "The oath of the Vestal Virgin". A girl is offering garlands of flowers to the statue of the goddess Venus, traditionally painted in a discrete way. She's holding the veil with one hand to cover the loins. The other hand covers the breast and the head with the hair gathered and adorned with flowers. Behind the girl, a young woman watches the scene, while a third peers from behind the column of the temple: therefore it seems to be a scene of supplication to the goddess, asking her to favor the love of two young men: according to both Greek and Roman tradition, the young before the wedding woman devoted themselves to this goddess, which was considered as the protector of marriage and conjugal fidelity. The work seems to be very close to the production of Giuseppe Cades, who in the 1780s and 1790s became one of the best known and appreciated personality in the Roman artistic world. He was a draftsman and an engraver too. The work is framed

Classical Landscape with 17th century figures

Oil painting on canvas. In a large green landscape where a river flows, a village emerges in the center; in the foreground on the right, on the path there is a group of women, dressed in colored tunics. the painting takes up the pictorial modalities of Gaspard Dughet, the Roman painter trained at the school of Poussin, who devoted himself mainly to landscape production, with a new freedom and a fresh naturalness aimed at discovering a real and magical at the same time, pagan Nature. free and wild. In Dughet's production the human figures were never dominant, absent in the early production and then introduced only at the request of the clientele, coming to adopt a particular type of figures without major changes throughout his career: elegant figures, with a loose bearing, dressed of a short, vaguely ancient tunic, usually anonymous and belonging to the people. Such traits are found in this work, even if the attribution to Dughet is uncertain, and it is thought rather to place it in his circle. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a period frame.

Rural Nightscape With Goats Mixed Technique On Cardboard 18th Century

ARARPI0107509
Genre Scene At The Barbershop Central European School 18th Century

Oil on canvas. Central European School. The scene is set in the shop of a barber, who is intent on cutting a man's hair under the watchful eye of other customers and, above all, of some women with children, one of whom even observes the result of his work with glasses. Glasses were introduced in art first as a sign of distinction, and later also as a sign of scientific attention, progressively delineating the figure of the scholar, doctor and surgeon: in this painting, they actually underline the irony of the scene, and they are used as a tool for a close female examination of the spouse's haircut! The whole scene is filled with figures, painted in a crude and almost grotesque way, with very marked, almost theatrical expressions and poses, underlined as well by the bright colours. Due to these characteristics, the painting fits well into that production of genre scenes based on popular life captured in its most lively and characteristic moments, which originated in the seventeenth century in Central Europe, especially in the Netherlands, to replace naturalistic and religious painting with lighter subjects, and which in Italy found a particular expression in the "Bamboccianti School", developed in Rome by Flemish and Italian painters. The painting has been restored and relined. It is presented in an antique frame.

Lament Over The Dead Christ Oil On Canvas North Italy School 1600

Oil on canvas. North Italian School. Inserted in a late Renaissance landscape, the composition of the figures is arranged according to an ascending diagonal towards the left and more precisely culminating with the three crosses on Calvary in the distance; the body of Christ is in the middle, lying, albeit also obliquely, behind him there are three figures: St. John, Mary in the centre, and a pious woman, the only one depicted in seventeenth-century clothes- probably a portrait of a person close to the client. The piece can be placed in the Lombard-Venetian cultural production of the first half of the 16th century, more precisely in the pictorial activity that flourished between Brescia, Garda and Verona, which found its maximum expression in the mannerist ways of Giovanni Demio (1500-1570 ca). In particular, some elements are found in the piece, especially in the shapes of clothing and poses (for example of Saint John), which refer to models of Raphaelesque mold that were widely used, thanks to the mediation of engravers such as Marcantonio Raimondi (1480 -1534 ca ), who contributed to the distribution of the pieces of the masters. The painting, restored and relined, has extensive renovations. It is presented in an antique frame, that can be dated around the 17th century, repainted.

Fight In The Tavern Central European School Oil On Canvas 18th Century

Oil on canvas. Central European school. The scene, set inside a tavern, depicts a fight between two men, who are held by the other patrons and by the innkeeper; on the table, next to the interrupted lunch, the cards of the game that sparked the quarrel. The whole scene is filled with figures, painted in a raw and almost grotesque way, with very pronounced, almost theatrical expressions and poses, underlined even more by the bright colours. Due to these characteristics, the painting fits well into that production of genre scenes based on popular life captured in its most lively and characteristic moments, which started in the seventeenth century in Central Europe, especially in the Netherlands, to replace naturalistic and religious painting with lighter subjects, and which in Italy found a particular expression in the "Bamboccianti School", developed in Rome by Flemish and Italian painters.

Moses And The Daughters Of Jethro Tempera On Paper Late 700 Early 800

Tempera on paper, applied to hardboard. The biblical episode depicted, described in the book of Exodus, tells how young Moses, still at the court of the Pharaoh of Egypt, defends the seven young daughters of the priest Jethro, harassed by some Midianite shepherds while they draw water from the well. After his intervention, Moses will receive in marriage one of Jethro's daughters, Zipporah. This subject is very popular in art history, it is presented here with a particular attention to the portrait component, with a particular exacerbation of the expressive traits, both in the faces and the poses of the characters. The scene is very lively, with the figure of Moses in the centre, vigorous and combative, who divides the field in two: on his left the seven girls, each characterized by a different behaviour; on the right the importuning shepherds, who suffer the wrath of Moses. In the background, a landscape typical of 18th century productions, with an architectural ruin behind the well. The work is presented in a frame in style.

Saint Nazario and Celso Oil On Canvas 17th Century

Oil on canvas. Nazario and Celso were two Christian martyrs, who died in Milan in 304 a.C., veneered both by the Catholic and the Orthodox Church, who travelled through Italy as evangelisers, and were persecuted by Romans. According to the tradition, the two young men were condemned to die and put on a ship that was supposed to take them offshore, where they would have been thrown overboard. The legend narrates that, once they had been thrown overboard, they started walking on water. There was a storm which terrorised the sailors, who asked Nazario for help. The waters got calm immediately. In the end, the ship landed in Genua, where Nazario and Celso continued their evangelising work, in all the Liguria region and pushing even to Milan, where they were arrested again and sentenced to death a second time. The painting is in its first canvas and has never been restored, it needs some cleaning up but it is in good condition (micro paint losses). It is presented in a coeval frame, with defects.
