Martyrdom scene

Features

Work title:  Scena di martirio

Time:  XVIII Century - from 1701 to 1800 , 17th century - from 1601 to 1700

Subject:  Scene with Figures

Artistic technique:  Pittura

Technical specification:  Oil on panel

Description : Scena di martirio

Oil on the table. Both the external rectangular frame and another internal frame, which inscribes the painting, are carved into the table. The scene proposes the martyrdom of a saint by stoning; although the most famous saint for having been subjected to this condemnation was Stephen (but he was martyred while still young, unlike the martyr proposed here), many were the Christians who suffered this form of martyrdom, because stoning was the punishment contemplated by the Mosaic law for the crimes considered more serious, such as blasphemy. The painted scene proposes characters dressed in the ancient fashion, but is inserted in a contemporary habitat to the painter. It is part of a group of small plates that tell the martyrdom of various saints, probably made for illustrative purposes for the common people.

La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.
