Fra Benedetto Marone e gli affreschi di San Cristo a Brescia. Un episodio eccentrico nella pittura del secondo Cinquecento
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The church of San Cristo in brescia houses one of the most interesting pictorial cycles of local Mannerism, painted in the sixties of the sixteenth century by the jesuat friar benedetto Marone. the examination of the biography and catalogue of the painter provides the profile of a wandering and eclectic artist, able to unify ideas resumed from the tuscan-roman school, Cremona and Venezia with brescia’s pictorial tradition; these features are confirmed by the dense succession of episodes shown within the decoration of San Cristo. the review of the frescoes also provides an opportunity to dig into some open questions, such as the likely presence of the young Pietro Marone on the scaffolding, in aid of his uncle Friar benedetto, or the uncertain dating of the vault, attributable to the fifteenth-century construction site of the building. Eventually, the author proposes some prudent hypothesis on the commissioning of the decoration, the result of a contribution of noble families from brescia among which the Martinengos had to play the leading role.
