This great work we offer is an example of aesthetic taste achieved by the workshop of Francesco Lavagna (active in Naples in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries), one of the protagonists of the Neapolitan school of the eighteenth century.
The canvas documenting the expressive qualities, as well as the great talent of the painter's rockeries, capable of a chromatic sensitivity of considerable visual impact, enhanced by the Veiling plays and thicknesses of materials, but especially a brightness that radiates unhindered and looseness.
The composition structure is typical of the painter's repertoire, who liked to make his floral compositions, often combined with other types of vegetables, including vegetables, fruits or mushrooms, placed in the open air in gardens; bouquets of flowers are harmoniously colored, placed inside vases or baskets arranged with an apparent randomness.
Given the excellent conditions we decided to offer them in the current state, without restoration.
