Michele Cammarano
Michele Cammarano Old Male Nude Portrait Painting 1860s Oil canvas

1860s

$40,507.77

About the Item

Even if placed in one of the poses conventionally adopted in the Academy for exercises in copying nudes, the elderly model treated here is studied with the anatomic sensibility to hold a subject independent of didactic training to become instead the heartfelt meditation of an artist on a body of austere old age, analyzed in all its particularities without transcending them. An interesting and potentially definitive clue for the attribution of this painting is a sketch representing Saint Jerome, correctly attributed to Michele Cammarano, in which one seems to find again the same elderly model as in our painting more emaciated to allude to the rigors of being a hermit but very similar in physiognomy, enough to assume the man was probably a model frequently present in the atelier of the Neapolitan artist, the same that in the character of a beggar is included in the background in front of a door with a sign on which is written “Painting studio”.
