Pair of 18th Century Italian School Oil on Canvas Paintings

About

Magnificent opposing pair of 18th century Italian school oil on canvas paintings mounted on boards. Both paintings depict a beautiful landscape with flowing streams, waterfalls and mountains. The clouds are robust leaving the sky partially cloudy. One of the paintings portrays an Italian family resting under a tree with their goats and herd dog near the bank of the stream. The other painting shows a romantic couple sitting while enjoying their children playing near the pond. Notice the darkening and lighting of the pair of opposing paintings and the artist's use of lighting in the paintings is to bring the viewers attention to certain parts of the painting over others. This painting technique is called Chiaroscuro, which was a style credited to the masters: Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and Rembrandt. Both original canvases are relined on newer canvas and then mounted on masonite boards that fit into uniquely shaped original frames. Such a pair of that size and quality with their uniquely shaped original frames are very rare to find. Note: There is an additional third smaller painting in this set that is available. Reference #: LU1970312160003.
