About

Perseo and Andromeda - Oil on canvas cm.120x80, Eugenio De Blasi, Italy, 2005. Gold gilded wooden frame available on request This is his reinterpretation of a large ancient painting "Perseus and Andromeda" by the German painter Anton Raphael Mengs. Mengs' production is linked to the fundamental principles of neoclassicism. Not surprisingly, his works are characterized by very balanced and symmetrical compositions, a clear drawing and a palette made up of very bright and lively colors, in contrast to the soft colors of Rococo. With these characteristics Mengs tended to reach a state of "sublime beauty", shared by other classicist painters residing in Rome in the seventeenth century, such as Andrea Sacchi and Nicolas Poussin. [ The work was inspired by a cameo that belonged to his wife and which is now kept in the Hermitage where the painting is also exhibited. The theme is taken from the myth of Perseus and Andromeda, precisely the moment of the scene with Perseus who has already freed Andromeda from the terrifying monster, who lies lifeless on the ground, and is bringing her to safety, thanks also to the help of the winged horse Pegasus.
