"Giovacchino Gamberini, XIXth Century."This painting “Belle Époque” is the work of an Italian artist named Giovacchino Gamberini. Listed in the Bénézit, we know that he was born in 1859 in Ravenna and that he died after 1904 in Florence. He was a pupil of Lanfredini at the Academy of Fine Arts in Pisa, started in Florence in 1886 and then settled in Turin from 1889. Painted in a green setting, this young couple seems to be isolated from the rest of the world. Wisely sitting on a rock, the young woman seems reserved and full of restraint, she leans on one hand, her face is slightly tilted, and her eyes are turned to the ground. The man, much more at ease, is carelessly lying down, turned towards her, devouring her with his eyes. Their clothes light up the composition, a bright red parasol abandoned on the floor and two charming ankles hidden by fuchsia pink stockings enliven the whole. This sweet work evokes bygone times when relationships between two lovers were dominated by romanticism and modesty. Period late 19th century. It is kept in a very beautiful stuccoed and gilded wooden frame. View dimensions 27 cm x 35 cm. frame dimensions 50 cm x 58 cm.
