In the pleasing work proposed, depicting a classical Nativity scene, the Madonna is immortalised in adoration as she gently holds the sheet on which the Child is lying, with a gesture of protection and pride that facilitates an atmosphere of intimate recollection, in addition to the presence of three cherubs at the top.

The stylistic analysis of the canvas can easily be traced back to a painter of the Genoese school and active during the 17th century, specifically with the devotional works from the workshop of Domenico Piola (Genoa, 1627-1703), an absolute protagonist of Genoese Baroque culture.

Piola was the owner of the most important city painting workshop of the time, known as 'Casa Piola', where his sons Paolo Gerolamo and Anton Maria also collaborated.

His production, which specialised in a type of highly decorative, profane and allegorical paintings, destined for the decoration of Genoese patrician palaces, also included a refined series of works of a religious nature.

In particular, the style of our beautiful breast painting is close to that of his son Anton Maria Piola (Genoa, 1654 - 1715), who favoured intimate devotional compositions, and was a continuator of a family painting tradition clearly recognisable in the type of faces with gentle expressions, in the rendering of puffy and opaque drapery, in the tendency to flatten volumes and space, in the chromatic range that emphasises the prevalence of cold tones with a grey-blue dominant and makes the luministic apex coincide with the spatial centre of the scene, which in this case is the Child Jesus, who emanates light with his white robes and the grey-blue hues of the Virgin's dress.


The work is completed by a nice antique wooden frame and is sold with a certificate of authenticity and guarantee.
