"St. Catherine Of Alexandria. Caravaggesque School Of XVIIth Century."
Oil on canvas (100 x 80 cm without frame) This is the portrait of a young princess represented in Saint Catherine of Alexandria, sumptuously dressed in a yellow taffeta dress covered with a blue drape. She holds her gear and a palm. The zenith lighting dear to the masters "Caravagesques" highlights his youthful face and comes to light his hands and lick the blued metal teeth of the wheel. Workshop of Massimo Stanzione Italian painter (Orta di Atella 1585 - Naples 1656). A leading figure in Neapolitan painting in the first half of the 17th century, he determined an original pictorial movement that, until the affirmation of the baroque style, had a broad resonance in the Neapolitan school. De Dominici (biographer of Neapolitan artists from the 15th to the 17th century) recalls his apprenticeship with Santafede, a Mannerist painter. As the youth production of Stanzione has not yet been identified, the chronology of the painter's work begins with his stay in Rome. He is very close to the Caravaggesque artists, and could also see the works of the Carracci, Dominiquin and Reni. He meets Simon Vouet in Rome. In these religious works, as well as in his portraits, a shining and brilliant pallet, a golden light, more enveloping create a warm and, so to speak, pre-romantic atmosphere. Sensitive to the impulse of the new Baroque sensibility, Stanzione urges in his later works the requirement of enlarging the composition by an accentuated vehemence and by a more free and less concentrated articulation of forms. Very good state of conservation. Sold with descriptive invoice & certificate
