"Herminie Chez Les Bergers, Italian School, End Of The 17th Century"
Herminia with the Shepherds, oil on canvas, Italian School, Rome ?, Naples ?, end of the XVIth-early 18th century Ancient attribution to Cortne on the reverse and inscriptions to the pen on the chassis. The subject is taken from the chant VII of Torquato Tasso's "The Delivered Jerusalem" (1581). Herminie escapes from Jerusalem and is taken to hunt by the Franks who take her for Clorinde, whose armor she has clothed. She borrowed him to go and help Tancred, who is wounded. Awakened by the sound of the instruments of the shepherds who guarded their flock, Herminie appeared to them clothed in this armor. Moved by their simple and peaceful life, she takes refuge with them for a while. The subject is treated in the style of history painting. In the dynamic attitude of the march, Herminie, dressed in Clorinde's golden armor and helmet, seems to be approaching a shepherd whose sons are frightened by the female soldier. In the foreground, the two sheep drinking at the river evoke his craft, like the dog at the foot of the crying child. The painter plays on the complementarity of colors yellow, blue, red and green to balance the canvas by chromatic masses induced by the disposition of the characters. The latter are detached from a deep, atmospheric perspective. The invoice is removed, relatively fine and detailed. Back frame in gilded wood. Dim. (H x W): 52 x 39 cm excluding frame
