"Old Oil On Canvas Lombardy Table From The Seventeenth Century."
Description: The work we offer is painted with great incisiveness and expressive force in a landscape occupied by the traditional figures present in the iconography of the Lamentation. The realism of perspective with which the subjects are immersed in space already reveals the new spatial structure proposed in 17th century painting, but rather the three-dimensional and naturalistic one of the classical tradition, where spatial depth is represented according to the principles of the natural perspective and not artificial. The representation of space with multiple points of view, which simulates mobile optical vision, is an empirical space, that is, experiential, non-geometric, non-mathematical. From the reading of the installation shots, we see in the foreground two female figures, covered with a long red-blue coat. The first, placed to the right of the observer, is represented squatting, leaning on the back, the head bowed, in pain. He is represented in a slight foreshortening and ideally turns his gaze downcast to the left, towards the face of Christ, not far from her. The second central figure takes a different posture, in fact the direction he is looking is upwards, even though the foreshortening reveals a three-quarter-body position, facing the right of the composition. The two women sit on the ground and participate in the scene calmly. Christ is not lying on the bare earth, his body is slightly raised and rests partially on the knees of the Virgin Mary (placed to the left of the painting in relation to the observer) who embraces the shoulders and the bust of her son , bringing her face closer to hers. The scene is rendered with measured drama and irresistible realism. Christ has a livid complexion and seems rigid, almost taken by the rigor The son of God occupies the scene, from the head to the left, to half the width of the painting. The figure of Mary Magdalene, at the feet of Christ, is undeniable, the femininity which connotes it comes from small precautions, details which concern the hair, thick and not completely gathered, nor hidden by any veil. Marie-Madeleine is seen in profile, her body, near the bust, is seen three-quarters and is covered with a dark colored dress. On the third floor is placed Mary of Cleopas who openly expresses her pain, she is represented to the right of the observer and in position behind the face of Christ, with a red mantle raised upwards and a horrified gaze turned towards Christ. The body of Maria di Cleopa is extraordinarily expressive, the face turned towards that of Jesus, dramatic in its expressiveness, preserves a relation of similitude and identity with the reality of pain.
