The painting, oil on canvas, 132 x l09 cm without frame and 141 x 118 cm with frame, depicting the Wedding at Cana within a scenic architecture of classicist taste, is the work of Antonio Cifrondi (Clusone 1656- Brescia 1730).
This is explicitly stated by the body of the brush stroke, which is rapid and quick, which never lingers on finishing, the warm colors played on the reds and on the earths, but above all the physiognomies of the characters, truly unmistakable, which we find in the whole its production both sacred and profane.
The figures with which he crowds his scenes are always popular and seem the same as his genre canvases, but in this version of the Wedding at Cana the painter also reveals an evident interest in the courtly painting of the Venetian sixteenth century. Think of the similar subject painted by Paolo Veronese and today of the Louvre museum, but above all of the specimen painted by Andrea Michieli for the church of San Trovaso in Venice, from which the scene of the Cifrondi derives, perhaps with the mediation of the press that from the painting by Vicentino he drew the engraver Martin Pleginck.
Cifrondi repeated the theme two more times, in the canvas of the church of Santa Maria Assunta and San Giacomo in Albino and in the other in Santa Maria a Scanzorosciate, where we also review the delightful detail of the little dog that comes out from under the flap of the tablecloth.
In these, however, the painter focuses more on the protagonists and offers less space at the outline, even if, as in our case, he focuses on the still life details of the laid table.
