About

Important refined oil painting on cardboard from a collection of nineteenth century works. Painting by G. Gonin, a very important artist who entered the history of art among the great Piedmontese painters of the 19th century. Biographical note: Turin 1833 - Aix-les-Bains (France) 1906 Guido Gonin, son and pupil of the artist Francesco Gonin, painted genre scenes and portraits and was a successful lithographer. His pictorial production, presented between 1851 and 1866 to the Turin Promotrice, includes works of an intimate and sentimental kind often of eighteenth-century re-enactment, revealing the influence of JLE Meissonier (La vita intima, 1862, and La matrigna, 1865, both in Turin, Civic Gallery of Modern Art). Introduced by his father at court and in the circles of the rich Turin bourgeoisie, he also established himself as a good portraitist (Portrait of the Notary Luigi Faldella, exhibited at the Turin Promoter in 1853). At the end of the Sixties he moved to France and resided in Paris for a few years, mainly as a designer of fashion figures. The work proposed by us for sale is extremely refined, a portrait of a young girl running in the woods. The girl in clothes that reveal the belonging to a noble family appears at the center of the scene among the green. The sumptuous clothes are still taste of the eighteenth century place the work, circa 1860 period in which the Gonin often re-evoked in his works the previous century. The work reveals the high artistic quality achieved by the painter in the use of colors and composition. The dress is made with such perfection that it seems to be able to feel the delicacy of the satin to the touch. From the point of view of the composition, the work is of the highest quality, perfectly balanced. A painting, moreover full of personality and feeling, in fact perfectly perceives the emotion of the girl who flees with composure, but what transpires is a peaceful escape, perhaps dictated by a moment of play on a beautiful summer day. Framed, 20th century.
