18th Century Italian Oil on Panel Bambocciata by Michelangelo Cerquozzi Follower

About

Michelangelo Cerquozzi (follower of) The bambocciante scene Oil on panel. Only panel cm W 38.5 x H 51. With frame cm W 66 x H 53.5 The bright painting, with great chromatic impact thanks to the technique of oil on panel represents a lively bambocciante scene, whose characters are located in a countryside, near the entrance door of a town or a village. With the term bambocciata are called the kind of painting aimed at representing, with figurative vivacity and animated effects of light and color, episodes of urban and rural life, street scenes, taverns, market, animated by people, gypsies and peasants. This subject spread especially in the 17th century, in open contrast with the great official baroque painting, and was thus called by the nickname “bamboccio” given to the Dutch painter Pieter van Laer, who worked in Rome in the first half of the 17th century. The scene here depicted with great vitality, through the use of quick touches and textures of color, illustrates a moment of everyday life related to rural activity: on the right is painted, at the gates of the village, a cart loaded with hay that two farmers are setting up. Before them sit some figures who stand beside their horses. A woman on his horse reaches a passer-by while a shepherd walks behind him with his dog. On the left, a child is sitting on his back, playing with small dogs next to a horse that rests seated. The entrance to the village is characterized by an arched passage between ancient walls, described with poetic “rovinismo”, in addition to which there are some houses. The clear sky is marked by some grey white clouds. The painting shows a close relationship between the composition and the famous paintings by Michelangelo Cerquozzi (Roma, 1602 – 6 aprile 1660). Michelangelo Cerquozzi, known as Michelangelo delle Battaglie was an Italian Baroque painter known for his genre scenes, battle pictures, small religious and mythological works and still lifes. His genre scenes were influenced by the work of the Flemish and Dutch genre artists referred to as the Bamboccianti active in Rome who created small cabinet paintings and prints of the everyday life of the lower classes in Rome and its countryside. The work is signed with a monogram M.C. (?) at the bottom right. The author of this painting will be sought after among the painters followers of Michelangelo Cerquozzi, active in the 18th century. Some typical characteristics of the master’s bambocciate, both compositive and stylistic, can be recognized, such as the writing and the physiognomic typologies of his production. The painter describes with care the different protagonists, their gestures and garments; attention that indicates a study from the true of everyday life, read and interpreted with naturalism. The brush stroke is quick and easy, and the author is able, through the highlights, to render volumes and depths. Historical and artistic studies are being carried out with a view to outlining more clearly the figure of the author. The artwork is in good condition.
