About

Giulio Romano (Rome 1499 c. - Mantua 1546), follower of The Holy Family First half of the 17th century Oil painting on canvas 76 x 88 cm., Framed 83 x 95 cm. In the pleasant devotional representation proposed, commonly also called "sacred conversation", the Virgin is depicted who, with a serene attitude and a veil of shyness, is caught tenderly holding the Child in her arms. Unlike the Virgin, the Jesus has within himself an absolute childish vivacity, with the head turned towards the observer and a lively smile, while it seems to hint at a caress with the hand stretched out towards the mother. On the other side of the painting is depicted Saint Joseph, lovingly observing the scene, with his hand pointing to the landscape glimpse that can be glimpsed in the background, characterized by some mountain ranges and a stretch of water, presumably alluding to the geographic origins of the client. The character of the painting, as well as the quality of the pictorial drafting, the sensitivity of the execution and the balance of the invention, are elements that lead us to detect its stylistic origins in the refined Raphaelesque culture, inserting it in the catalog of those works of subsequent execution and destined for a collectors' market where the fame of Raphael's school was still in vogue. The softness of the complexions, the idealization of the figures, the tenderness of the expressions, even the somatic features of the three individual figures: everything is reminiscent of Raphael, albeit with a certain degree of personalization. In particular, we can find the style of Giulio Romano, who, together with other names such as Perin del Vaga, Giovan Francesco Penni, Giovanni da Udine, and Polidoro da Caravaggio, made up the group of the most gifted students of the Raphaelesque workshop. We are therefore faced with a painting executed by a painter active between the end of the sixteenth century and the first part of the following century, strongly inspired by this erudite and refined culture, who must necessarily have studied the creations of these masters, to then propose a version similar, but unique, not a mere copy of already famous works. The painting is in excellent condition and is accompanied by a beautiful frame. For more information, please contact us. The work, like all our objects, is sold with a certificate of photographic authenticity in accordance with the law.
