Portrait of Santa Chiara
second half of the 16th century
Oil painting on canvas
65 x 52 cm
with carved and gilded frame cm. 91 x 78
The canvas, a magnificent work by the painter Scipione Punzone, depicts a portrait of Santa Chiara, immortalized while supporting the Monstrance with devotion, its typical iconographic attribute.
The portraits performed by Pulzone, as well as the one under examination, are images of an incomparable elegance: noblewomen, knights, cardinals and popes lent their physiognomy to the attentive eye of the artist, who was able to grasp with his superb technique every meticulous particular immortalized. A surprising attention to detail, which follows a Flemish-inspired pictorial prototype, and which gave the artist the nickname of "Van Dyck of the Roman school".
The corpus of sacred works performed by Pulzone show a fineness of unparalleled execution; just think of the enchanting face of the Blessed Virgin of the Trafalgar Galleries in London, which finds incredible similarities with our Santa Chiara.
In exceptionally good condition, the present painting is complete with a beautiful golden frame.
