Francesco Solimena (Canale di Serino 1657 - Neaples 1747), workshop

Measures (cm): 155 x 102

The splendid painting in question, dating back to the late seventeenth century, was recently acquired by us from a bequest of a Roman noble family.

The artwork, depicting the Adoration of the Shepherds, is striking not only for its size and spectacular way, to the vivid colors and great emotional intensity of the subject. The centerpiece of the performance is made by the Virgin that deviates the two edges of the sheet, revealing the child to those present, who watch adoring; behind St. Joseph, while all around people pay homage to the Holy Family with acts of devotion. The top two angels holding up garlands of flowers to celebrate the announcement of the birth of the Savior.

Analyzing the work of art from a stylistic point of view, emerging numerous characteristics that lead to the authorship of the workshop Neapolitan Solimena Francesco (napoli 1657 - 1747), one of the most representative artists of the late Baroque culture in Italy . In this regard, we can see the preference for those pictorial elements which focus attention on the characters, as the contrasts of light and shadow, able to give a strong emphasis to the brilliant range of colors.

The painting is in excellent condition, and is accompanied by a beautiful gold frame contemporary mecca.

The painting, like all our object is sold with a certificate of authenticity.

We handle and organize transportation of the purchased works, both for Italy and for abroad, through professional carriers and insured. For info http://antichitaischia.it/spedizioni.html
