"Caprice Architectural Marcantonio Chiarini"Painting oil on canvas with dimensions of 85 x 95 without frame and 108 x 118 cm representing an architectural whim of the painter Marcantonio Chiarini (Bologna 1652 - 1730).
In this theatrical representation, probably inspired by an episode from the history of ancient Rome, but with a free recovery of costumes extended to the Italian Renaissance, a Bolognese matrix from the first half of the 18th century can be found, by an author late Baroque firstborn, revisited in the light of neoclassical fortunes. both in the figurative imprint and in the architectural framework which serves as a background for the action of the characters.
Chiarini was able to establish himself as one of the most interesting Bolognese personalities, in this moment of transition from baroque culture to neoclassical culture, "precisely for the turning point that he impressed with a certain genius, for the decorative taste of his time ", adhering to his paintings. they pay for this new language, which is now spreading throughout most of Europe.
However, Chiarini's new "modern" path developed mainly in the decorations of the Belvedere Palace in Vienna or the Palazzo Mansi in Lucca, where it "touches the happiest moment of his long career, due to the way unconventional with which he welcomes late Baroque poetics referring to these examples of Bolognese painting, which in the field of architectural whim had individually anticipated aspects of neoclassical culture. An actualization, however, was not always joyfully expressed in traditional iconography, in which it remained anchored to a predominant academic imprint.
