The Entry of Christ into Jerusalem
An important painter in the history of Neapolitan painting, Scipione Compagno began his activity around 1636 and completed it in 1660. He was the pupil of Aniello Falcone and the student of Salvatore Rosa.
According to Salerno, we can distinguish two periods in the painter's life:
From 1636 to 1650 he painted small delicate works on copper (eg "the massacre of the innocent" of the Alisio collection in Naples)
From 1650 onwards he adopted a wider way, as shown in the two tables:
Entrance of Christ in Jerusalem (past Finarte in Rome) or the painting presented here.
One constant remains: the tendency to treat historical subjects in a miniaturizing form, such as Bril and Poelenburg in Rome, and especially Salvatore Rosa and Mico Spadaro in Naples.
