Object description :

"Holy Family Francesco Cozza"
Oil painting on canvas depicting a holy family with S. Anna and San Giovannino measures 69 x 89 without frame and 83 x 103 with frame of the painter Francesco cozza (Stilo 1605 - Roma 1682). This sacred scene depicting the Virgin who supports the Child Jesus standing on his knees, to which Saint John the Baptist offers to cross, accompanied by St. Anne and looked by two cherubim. The figures are arranged in the background of an architectural interior in front of a large vase with a lid on the right and another square pillar surmounted by a cone in the center with a landscape opening on the left where appears a woman lying on the ground. The domestic familiarity with which this scene is presented, however, is rendered with a strict language and a calibrated rate of exposure, adhering to the classicist Roman current, such as that led to Rome by Domenichino towards the end of the third decade of the seventeenth century, still closed to rights Baroque openings. This painting is a testimony of the Roman artistic development and especially ecclesiastical that is linked to a raffaellesco rigor. Observing also the characteristic features of the two women and two children, as well as the two cherubim, we can only return to the name of Francesco Cozza (Stilo 1605 - Rome 1682), Calabrian by birth but Romans of adoption. Indeed, by observing both early works like those of S. Andrea delle Fratte and more mature ones like the Madonna and Saints of S. Egidio in Montalcino, we notice the same modus operandi present in this painting, the same mental frame and this stamp of archaism still persisting his work, placing him as a unique painter of his kind. The work, like all our objects, is sold accompanied by a certificate of photographic authenticity; this document identifies the object by adding value to the article.
