18th Century Italian Neoclassical Oil on Canvas Screen with Trompe L’œil

About

18th century, large Italian neoclassical oil on canvas four panels screen with Trompe L’œil These large screen is composed of four panels in oil on canvas painted. Neoclassical, dating to the second half of the 18th century. Each panel represents a trompe l'oeil, with a classical architecture with square section marble columns and large clogging. Inside the pink space of the first and third panels are painted, as inserted in a niche with bronze frame, ancient busts in marble: it is, as it reads from the cartouches in faux marble below, of the busts of Emperor Marcus Aurelius and his wife Annia Galeria Faustina. In the lower register, in green space, there are garlands of ribbons, bows and flowers. On the other panels, the painter plays with the illusionist architecture : he have painted two large frames in pink marble, partially covered by two large, soft and voluminous draped curtains, one red and the other in shades of blue. On the thickness of the hoof are represented two putti: the first is intent to move the red curtain, while the other plays with a greyhound who, from the ground, tries to reach him. In the lower part are represented two female heads in grisaille, which simulate marble sculptures. Iconographically must be recognized the goddess Ceres or Demeter, maternal deity of the earth and fertility, the guardian of the harvest and birth. The frame of the upper frame is moulded with soft and sinuous lines that lighten the architectural structure and increase its decoration. This screen, of majestic size and of high pictorial quality, lends itself to be inserted, in any room of your house, both alongside antique and modern furnishings. It is also well exposed placed on the wall, as one or four separate paintings. Of great scenic and decorative impact thanks to the trompe l’oeil, it is also extremely pleasant through the dynamism and liveliness of the scene depicted. Historical and artistic studies are underway in order to better delineate the figure of the painter and the cultural context in which the work was made. New images will be inserted shortly. Subject with "Certificate of Authenticity".
