Saint Paul Hermit And Saint Anthony Abbot Oil On Canvas 17th Century

Oil on canvas. Lombard school. The painting portrays the two saints sitting on rocks in the shadows of leafy trees, while they break bread, in the foreground on the left; Saint Paul is traditionally dressed with animal skins, Saint Anthony Abbot is wearing the habit of the Order and he is holding a prayer book. The two Saints have often been represented together becasue they share many traits: they both lived in the third century, they are both Egyptian, they both left all of their properties very young to devote themselves to a life of complete solitude, living in prayer and poverty. Saint Anthony Abbot has been one of the most famous hermits in the history of the Church. Saint Paul the Hermit lived all of his life in complete solitude in the desert as well, fed only with the bread a raven would regularly bring to him, according to hagiographic narratives. When he was closer to death, Saint Anthony Abbot visited him, with whom he broke bread. In this representation, the landscape context doesn't remind of the desert lands of Egypt, but they are located in a Nordic or Alpine landscape. On the left, there is an eremitical landscape, with some green and a small stream bottom right. The painting, already restored and recanvased, presents evident craquelure. Frame in style.

The Deposition Of Christ

Oiol on canvas. Between 1652 and 1665 Luca Giordano painted the Deposition of Christ for high altar of the Church of Santa Maria del Pianto in Venice, now kept in the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice. The piece express well the style of the famous Neapolitan painter, who was extremely prolific and worked in every Italian and European city, marking the passage from baroque to rococo. This was so successful that Giordano's atelier - and probably a other regional artists from Campania or Veneto - were pushed to replicate the painting in numerous copies, to fulfill the requests of other provincial churches or, in a smaller, easel format, for private collectors. The execution of this copies, all great quality, that you can find today scattered around Italy and abroad, seems to be concentrated between the end of 1600 and the first part of 1700. The copy here presented can be included between those, it is attributable to the atelier of the Neapolitan master for the high execution quality. The great scene is striking for the impressive "human bodies ladder", a sequence of twisted bodies in an ascending position: they rise, starting from Mary and John bottom left; they go right for the group with the body of Christ, embraced in an ascending tangle of figures that are laying him down from Cross, it comes back top left to the group of angels that witness it from the clouds under the open skies. The dramatic play of colours and lights is added to the plasticity of the shapes, and follows the same ascending movement: thge figures on the bottom stand out for the bold but dark colours. red and blue on a dark background where even the flesh tones appear dull, grounded; the plastic group on the right is dominated by an almost blinding, but cadaveric, white of the body of Christ, which illuminates the bodies that surround him as well; lastly, the jubilation of angels with pink complexions is projected towards the warm light of the open skies. The painting, restored and recanvased in antique, is presented in an antique gilded frame,
