Oil painting on canvas. The scene proposes the adoration of Jesus Child, placed in the center at the top, by some great saints, first of all by Mother Mary who is in a contemplative attitude of the Son seated like Him on a cloud; further down from the left, Saint Veronica Giuliani can be recognized, with her heart in her hand, a young saint pierced through the heart by an arrow, a crowned saint with royal robes and the palm of martyrdom in her hand, which could be Santa Barbara, and finally Saint Lucia leading her eyes to a saucer. They are therefore all holy martyrs, who adore Christ in the glory of heaven. The painting, restored and relined, is presented in a gilded frame from the late 19th-early 20th century.

Artistic technique: PitturaLa 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.

Mixed technique on paper (charcoal, pen, brown ink, watercolor and white lead). Signed Pasqual Otin lower left; coming from a private collection, there are the brands of two previous collections, Dalla Bella and Frigerio. The work is also accompanied by a critical study by dr. Francesco Vincenti and a certificate of authenticity from the Orler Collection. It is a fascinating drawing by Pasquale Ottino known as Pasqualotto, a Veronese painter (the surname Otin corresponds to the Venetian wording) who, after a period of training in Rome, embarked on a painting career in Verona marked "by the Caravaggesque luminism declined in the Venetian style with the use of robust colourism ". Also in this drawing the Counter-Reformation tendency is already perceived, for the meaning of immediate teaching, linked to the dramatic expressiveness of the characters. The episode recounted, drawn from the Acts of the Apostles, sees a Roman centurion who begs for blessing from Peter, inside a room that draws light from the window and is filled with other characters from the newspaper, the attendant on the right and the servant who brings bread and wine to the tray on the left. Central is the intense gaze between the two protagonists, accompanied by the hint of a smile on their lips, to express the joy of the encounter of Salvation. Framed.
Oil painting on canvas. XVIII -XIX century. The sacred theme in this scene takes on a familiar connotation, full of very earthly tenderness and intimacy: in an almost exotic context, which evokes an oasis in the desert for palm trees and a spring of water in a barren and hilly landscape. bare, Joseph and Mary sit to rest during their flight to Egypt, to escape the persecution of Herod; the mother tenderly holds baby Jesus on her knees, looks at him tenderly and swaddles him, while Joseph observes them pleased and relaxed. The whole scene is characterized by the dominance of brown-ocher colors, from which only Maria's dress differs, in her traditional blue and red colors; in the background, a clear sky in the colors of a dawn that has just dawned, with shades of pink. The canvas was applied on a new frame from the mid-1900s and placed in a frame from the same period, which has some shortcomings.
Oil on canvas. Italian school of the eighteenth century. It is a large hilly landscape, rich in vegetation and crossed by a small stream, along which two men, in the center of the scene below, are fishing from a pool of water. Above them a sky full of clouds, which fade into the distance, evoking imminent rains. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a gilded frame from the mid-1900s.
Oil on the table. Northern Italian (Venetian?) School of the 18th century. The shape of the table suggests that the painting was part of a furnishing set, inserted in a composite wall structure together with other mythological-allegorical scenes. The painting represents a mythological episode narrated in Ovid's Metamorphoses: Mercury prepares to put Argus to sleep with the persuasive melodies of his flute, and then kills him at the command of Jupiter. Argos, the shepherd with a hundred eyes and endowed with great strength, had been commissioned by Juno to watch over the young Io, loved by Jupiter and transformed by him into a heifer. In this representation, placed within a bucolic landscape, Mercury can be identified with his hat and winged shoes, while playing his flute, and Argus sitting watching the white heifer behind him: as in many representations of this myth, also in works of great fame, Argo is depicted as a simple shepherd, without a hundred eyes and without special gifts. The bucolic rather than dramatic dimension underlines the decorative intent of the panel, which seeks to evoke lightness rather than pathos. The work is in good condition.
Oil on canvas. Italian school of the seventeenth century. The scene of traditional Christian iconography is very lively and lively, very rich in figures, details and colors: in the center the three figures of the Magi, who pay homage to the Baby Jesus, moved to the left with the Holy Family, while at right there is all the rich suite of the three kings, with gifts. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a period frame, with shortcomings.
Oil on canvas. The large scene, set in a hilly countryside, with a village and ruins in the background on the left, is completely occupied by the compact group of numerous living figures: the shepherd's family sitting in the center, observing the companion who holds the child in her arms in swaddling clothes; all around, the animals, from the faithful shepherd dog to the beasts of the flock, sheep, goats and cows, also at rest. The great naturalism of the animal figures stands out, which refers as a pictorial modality to the works of the school of Philipp Peter Roos, known as Rosa da Tivoli (1657-1706), the German painter considered one of the best painter of animals active in Italy in the seventeenth century, characterized by the peculiar ability to evoke the fleece and the looks of animals. The work, restored and relined, is presented in a gilded style frame.
Oil painting on canvas. Venetian school. The scene, set in a desert territory close to snow-capped mountains, sees a traveling caravan, with an important female figure in the center on the back of a camel, addressing a servant below; the high social class of women is inferred, dominant over all the others, and the representation of the Queen of Sheba, the very rich biblical queen coming from the East to meet King Solomon, is hypothesized. The pictorial methods recall the production of Francesco Fontebasso (1707-1769) one of the main exponents of Venetian painting of the Rococo period. Probably the small work was a sketch for a larger canvas or fresco. On the back there is a label from the historic Simonetti collection in Rome. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a late 19th century frame.
Oil on canvas. A seduction scene is described on a country path: a standing young woman shows her body to the man sitting to rest with her partner; while he looks away, his wife looks sorrowfully at the young harlot, holding her partner by the hand. Other travelers appear on the path. Perhaps of allegorical significance, the painting underlines the contrast between the freshness, brightness and ardor of the young female body, whose beauty is flaunted, and the ill-defined, bundled, almost hidden shape of the two elderly bodies. On the back of the painting there is a hypothesis of attribution to Giuseppe Gambarini (1680-1725) in pencil. Despite the dubious attribution, the painting is well done in the pictorial quality and in the rendering of the subject. Restored and relined, it is presented in a re-adapted antique frame.

The prelate is waring a traditional habit and he is holding a boog of prays of which is keeping the mark by putting his finghers between the pages undelining the priority of spiritual moments in his life; down on his left thare is a clock on a pile of books: it is a fair "memento mori" that is a reminder of the time passing and it reminds to dedicate life to important things as praying. The painting had been restored and displayed in a ancient frame that had been gilded again.
