Diziani Pair Of Landscapes Paint View Old master Oil on canvas 18th Century Art


$23,918.5920% Off


Antonio Diziani (Venice, 1737 - 1797) Superb pair of works (1) Rocky landscape with animals and figures praying in a tabernacle (2) Mountainous landscape with small bridge, travelers and perched tower oil on canvas, 70 x 43 cm In the frame cm. 77 x 50 The paintings are accompanied by a critical map by Dr Federica Spadotto (Venice, March 6, 2019). This exquisite pair of paintings depicting two large country passages with villagers and animals - in the first example collected in prayer before a tabernacle; in the second, intent on crossing a stone bridge with donkey and flock - rightly fits into the pictorial corpus of Antonio Diziani (Venice, 1737 - 1797), who here records with originality the emotional vibrations of the theater of nature, leading to also represent the call of the place and the atmospheric light for eighteenth-century artists, attracted by the variable physiognomy of such landscapes; Typical examples of the artist's delightful manner, the works stand out thanks to a preference for bucolic, bright and vividly pigmented landscape pieces. Pieces in which the landscape does not aspire to a grandiose grandiloquence as in the most noble Venetian tradition, but which, in their idyllic dimension in perennial balance between fairy tale and reality, depict early micro-universes dotted with streams, lakes and verdant wooded landscapes. Despite their narrative and inventive simplicity, these are cleverly rhythmic and spaced compositions, impregnated with the silvery brilliance of streams of water, dotted with small villages and constantly enlivened by slender figurines characterized by fluid brushstrokes. The master, as his works show, was attracted by the minor protagonists of street life: peasants, fishermen, wayfarers and shepherds who he recognizes in their expressive autonomy through picturesque annotations and which he returns to the calm Arcadian dimension in the subsequent landscape elaboration. The technically well-expressed refined painting, a palette rich in matter, fresh and bright in colors, with a quick and airy touch, support the great inventive imagination of this prolific landscape painter in expressive vivacity. Son of Gaspare's art, Antonio took his first steps collaborating with his father, whose ascendant is clearly recognized in the shattered and flowing brushstroke as well as in the preference for the green-straw shades of the tree branches and for the precious blue and shining of the skies. [...] Reference bibliography: F. Spadotto, Venetian landscape artists of the '700, Rovigo 2014, pp. 261-272 The works are presented in excellent conservation conditions. Performed professional reintelo. They are complemented by gold Salvator Rosa frames.
