Object description :

The painting, in "Emperor's Canvas" format, surrounded by its original Salvator Rosa frame, represents a tumultuous battle on the slopes of two fortified cities and in the background a gulf. In 1600, wars went wild all over Europe, the "Thirty Years War" (1618-1648) the threat of an Ottoman raid, the popularity of Torquato Tasso's novel "The Jerusalem Freed" which tells of love and the profession of arms during the crusades, they arouse a strong demand for this pictorial genre which is sought after and appreciated by fine collectors. In this battle, no matter who wins, on which side, which armies are employed, the only objective of the painting is the exaltation of the soldiers, the strength and the rawness of the war that only those who have fought can appreciate, hate, love, remember and who therefore attracted the collections of the time. The paint is dense, juicy, with an enamel mixture. The faces of all the soldiers are beautifully executed, calling the comrades to the office, who have wrapped themselves in the crowd, screaming in fear or in pain from the wounds. The painting finds similarities with two even larger paintings kept at the Capodimonte museum in Naples, also attributed to an unknown Neapolitan master of the 17th century.
