Aureliano Milani
The Baptism of Christ - Oil on Canvas by A. Milani - Early 18th Century

Early 18th Century

About

The Baptism of Christ is an original old master painting realized in the first half of the XVIII Century by the Italian old master Aureliano Milani. Original oil on canvas. Mint conditions. Beautiful ancient painting depicting a baptism scene. The figure of Christ leans his head towards John the Baptist, the standing figure covered with an animal fleece, in its typical iconography. The composition is influenced by the style of the Carracci's and in general by the Emilian painting of the first half of the Seventeenth Century. The composition is extremely linear and the lines are classic and pure, as in the best Emilian tradition of the period. This work has been realized by Aureliano Milani (Bologna, 1675 - Rome, 1749), an Italian painter, draftsman and engraver. He studied with his uncle Giulio Cesare Milani, then he continued with the Bolognese artists Lorenzo Pasinelli (1629-1700) and Cesare Gennari (1637-1688), and developed a personal mannerism. His instinct pushed him away from the late Baroque and led him to rediscover the powerful style of the Carracci. He studied his works, both those in the house of Count Alessandro Fava, who protected him, and those present in Bologna in the collections of Palazzo Magnani. In 1718, he moved to Rome and stayed there for many years. Cardinal Camillo Paolucci commissioned him frescoes for the church of San Pancrazio in Albano. Milani painted altarpieces for the church of the Bergamaschi and for the Basilica of San Giovanni e Paolo al Celio. His altarpieces are also in the church of San Marcello al Corso. He also frescoed the Gallery of Doria Pamphili Palace. He drew a lot, in particular with the black chalk technique with white pencil raises. He engraved on copper. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
