Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
This contribution analyzes a painting by Padovanino, a mythological subject, displayed in the art gallery of Palazzo Vertemate Franchi in Valchiavenna, a piece almost unknown up to today and ignored by the artist’s official bibliography. For the subject, previously catalogued as Bacchanal, instead the scholar proposes Venus and Mars surrounded by the Graces and Cupids, with precise references to the ancient mythology and literary works of the early seventeenth century, such as “La rete di Vulcano” by Ferrante Pallavicino. Furthermore, from a stylistic point of view the author highlights interesting affinities with more and less known works of Padovanino, such as the many and famous copies of The Bacchanalia by Titian, and The Graces and Cupids (the Hermitage in St. Petersburg). Finally, the author proposes same interesting references to the five senses, a very popular genre in painting and art between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
