About

Oil painting on canvas with the dimensions of 95 x 86 cm without frame and 115 x 110 cm with a magnificent contemporary frame representing a still life with a carpet, pottery and a cat by the painter Ludovico Stern (Rome 1707 - 1779 ). This refined "Floral still life" composed of a central cascade of flowers and a very elegant red carpet where is placed a finely decorated vase and fresh fruits of refined work, underlined in the light in the background, expresses a singular analytical taste. mimetic and pictorial typologies, which brings us back to an Italianized Nordic matrix, therefore to an Italian master but of primary or indirect Nordic extraction. By focusing research on these coordinates in the prolific sector of `` florists '' active in Rome at the end of the 18th century, and noting the predominant blue-white tone of lush and fragrant floral clusters such as carnations, tulips and the roses, we can safely trace the name of "our author, identifiable in Ludovico Stern (Rome 1709 - 1777). Roman by birth but son of Ignatius, a Bavarian painter already ardently active in Emilie and Rome, he knew how to renew his father's successes, establishing himself as the exhibitor, emerging in his time, of an illustrious family of Roman artists and architects of Germanic. origin that he exploited throughout the following century. A monograph of this refined protagonist of the Roman “Rococo” has recently been edited by F. Petrucci and DK Marignoli (Ludovico Stern (1709-1777). Rococo painting in Rome, A. & V. Budai Editori, Foligno 2012, of which part of the catalog is devoted to "still life". But more than his "Vasetti di fiori", a subject repeated several times by Stern junior, it is more appropriate to consider the couple of the most varied composition of the Marquis de Lothian collection of Melbourne Hall as well as the floral inserts present in several of his paintings of figures, such as the Madonna and Child from Palacio Ral de La Granja in San Ildefonso, and the exquisite “Portrait of Baron Frans Ludwig von Erthal from the Staatliche Museen in Munich. It is also worth mentioning that Stern junior, a real specialist as a `` florist '', collaborated with relevant floral inserts in the decorative series of Paolo Monadi. formerly in Villa Chigi on the Salaria. Finally, it is worth noting the different floral insertions, including a separate garland, in the paintings executed at Palazzo Borghese, which mark a high point of all its way in the face of the prestige of the client himself.
