The paintings remained in the family collection, in the palace of the family, and are now presented in all their expressive force. Ethiopia has a very particular history: it is situated between Africa and Asia, and between the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean, was a crossroads and meeting point of different cultures, stimulated also by the constant and intense trade flows.

Battle scene

art of ethiopia, 1935 ca.

The paintings, oil on canvas, is actually very probably a scene that overlaps several typical subjects and much played in the scope of the art ethiopian traditional of the early '900. A recurring theme is the hunt for slaves. A painting similar to ours) for the provision of the scenes and the narration is in the museum of Bremen, and resumes the events of Iyassu, the prince of the population is Amhara, which is fighting after the death of Menelik II, the people of the Gimirra, which occupied the southern part of Ethiopia. The painting contrasts with the Amhara, clothes, and commanders with a kind of hat to the fringes, to the "barbarians" Gimirra, half-naked, killed, and agency. The expedition ended with the capture of about 20,000 new slaves. In reality, in our painting also appear citations that refer to the action of Ras Tafari, who, in 1928, after the coronation of negus, represses the revolt of the Oromo, in provoncia of Uollo. A further quotation is in the presence of numerous guns, which recall the battle of the 1930's with the final defeat of Gugsa Oliè and the subsequent appointment of Ras Tafari as emperor. Therefore, the painting, made around 1935 by a client Italian, the sum in our opinion, these issues. It is part of a group of seven works, which arrived in Italy at the end of the '30s; were purchased directly on-site , as we have reconstructed from the correspondence and from the family photos, from the lawyer xxx, grandfather of the owners, who was sent as a legal representative of a company of Italian production in 1935 in Ethiopia, and from here it was driven out in 1938 by general Graziani, because it was considered anti-fascist.
