Description : Ritratto di nobiluomo
Oil painting on canvas. On the back of the work there is a nineteenth-century paper label which attributes the painting to Carlo Marotta, and erroneously identifies the character portrayed as Alfonso, son of Francesco I d'Este. It is the portrait of a nobleman with a long white wig, which in the eighteenth century became a refined symbol of high lineage, a complement to the clothing with which the rich showed all their pomp and vanity, and later became an accessory of magistrates and judges in their functions. The black cape worn by the nobleman, enriched by a precious lace jabot, could lead him back to this category. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a period frame.
Product in good condition, shows small signs of wear. We try to present the real state as fully as possible with photos. If some details are not clear from the photos, what is reported in the description will prevail.

Time: 18th Century / 1701 - 1800In the century of the Enlightenment, or the exaltation of reason and science as the only tools that can free man from ignorance and the yoke of the Church and the nobility, art passes from the intent of the Baroque to tell religious truths or to imitate nature, with strong chiaroscuro contrasts and artificial excesses, to the lighter and more vaporous forms (sometimes even frivolous and affected) of the so-called Barocchetto or Rococò, to lead to Neoclassicism which, looking at the ancient art of the Greeks and Romans, wants to re-propose the discovery of beauty, in the search for harmony, proportions, balances.

Artistic technique: PaintingLa 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.
Technical specification: Oil on CanvasThe oil painting is a painting technique using powder pigments mixed with bases in inert and oils.

Oil painting on canvas. Northern Italian school of the eighteenth century. The landscape, set on the banks of a wide river, sees in the center some figures of peasants intent on picking fruit from a tree: a girl holds the ladder while the boy cuts off a bunch, on the left another couple places the fruit collected in a tub. All around a vast green countryside and some farmhouses. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a period frame.
Oil on canvas. Italian school of the 17th century. The putative father of Jesus, clearly identified by the flowery staff on top, holds the child in his arms, stretching it out as if to present and offer it to the world; a look of tenderness passes between the two. Restored and re-framed, the painting is presented in a stylish frame.
Oil painting on canvas. Italian school of the eighteenth century. The characteristic Italian landscape with a bucolic taste, with a fertile and verdant countryside, a rich stream, the ruins of a small castle and figures of commoners resting on the path. The canvas has several small drops of color, signs of previous retouching and a small hole on the left. Relined, it is presented in a regilded antique frame.
Oil painting on canvas. The Holy Family is depicted with Mary and Joseph who, converging one hundredth with their heads close together, frame the Child Jesus, intent on playing with a lamb, the iconographic symbol of the sacrificial victim, therefore a prelude to the Passion, together with the small Cross that the child holds in one hand. The inscription anno 1845 appears at the top right, an indication of the period probably added during the subsequent restoration phase. In fact, the work has been restored and relined. It is presented in a stylish frame.
Oil on canvas. From a private collection in which they were combined as a pendant, the two compositions are actually different in manufacturing and technique, as well as in the size of the canvases. The slightly larger canvas (71 x 91 cm), in oil, features two different wicker baskets filled with white and red grapes, surrounded by other fruit (pears and peaches) and with a curious squirrel sniffing the air; the dark background is empty. The second canvas (64 x 88 cm) is made with the lean oil technique, which makes it very close for pictorial effect to a tempera on canvas; the composition is made up of variegated flowers and fruit (watermelon, grapes, peaches), and is placed in an external environment, albeit not very defined (the clouds on the left). Both canvases need cleaning; the first shows traces of previous restoration and relining (patch on the back), while the second, in her very worn first canvas, has very widespread small holes and drops of color. Both works are presented in white lacquered frames, albeit different in shape.
Tempera on canvas. Chaekkori, which translated literally means "books and objects", is a type of painting of the Still Life genre belonging to the end of the Korean dynastic period called Choson (1392 -1910), in particular which developed from the second half of the 18th century to the first half of the '900, which was widely successful in all social states, to express the love for the culture of the Korean population. It is characterized by the depiction of various objects that define the man of letters, in particular books are always present, as in this one proposed here, in which a goose pen for writing is placed side by side, a set of porcelain bowls, a fan folded in its case. Relined and restored, the painting is presented in an early 1900s frame.
Oil painting on canvas. Northern Italian school of the XVII-XVIII century. In the scene the Virgin Mary, intent on praying on the left, receives from the Archangel Gabriel on the right the announcement that she will be the Mother of Jesus, through the work of the Holy Spirit present in the form of a dove that descends from above, immersed in the divine light. The setting refers to the period of execution of the work; near Mary the objects of prayer to indicate her spirituality, but also a spinning wheel, to indicate her human activity. Restored and relined, the painting is presented in a period frame.
Oil on canvas. The face of the Virgin reminds of the style of representation of Giovanni Battista Salvi, also known as Sassoferrato (1609-1685), whose style was often revived in 18th and 19th century. There is a cartouche on the back of the painting with the inventory number (N. 193) and the name of the collector Giuseppe Bertarelli (1804-1875), merchant and philanthropist from Milan, known for his important art donations to the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana. The painting is in its first canvas; needs restorations for small paint losses and two small holes. It is presented in a coeval frame.
