Still Life with Young Lady - Giuseppe Romani ( 1654 - 1718 )

Painting oil on canvas, with dimensions of 86 x 121 cm without frame and 100 x 135 cm with frame, depicting a girl lost in the nature of the painter Giuseppe Romani (Como 1654 - Modena 1718).

The painting in question is a typical example of the painting by Giuseppe Romani, an artist from Como with few little biographical informations, but whose pictorial corpus is being defined more and more completely. The predisposition to genre painting and the attention to low themes reveal that his training must have taken place in Lombardy (more precisely in Como) before moving to Modena, a city where he was active for a long time and where he also had a significant success at the official rooms (also thanks to the knowledge of Pier Francesco Cittadini of which he was a pupil for 5 years), as shown by the prestigious destinations of his religious paintings (Cathedral of Modena, the church of San Carlo, the church of San Bartolomeo dei Gesuiti, the church of San Domenico and others) and the role of director of the public painting academy carried out towards the end of the century.

Therefore author of works of sacred subject, in which the presence of cues taken from everyday life and from the observation of natural data is relevant, Romani owes his fame precisely to genre paintings in which card players, kitchen interiors are protagonists , boys with bags, girls wrapped in nature, however themes drawn from everyday life. What is striking in the way in which the painter interprets his subjects is the strong human participation and the desire to give moral dignity to poor themes, without the irony or paternalistic tones typical instead of the Emilian tradition.

A very personal artist, dominated by the feeling of meaning of color, its perception and its visibility, certainly not betrayed by scorching ethical feelings or aesthetic sensitivity. Writing or talking about the painting of the artist Giuseppe Romani is easy: his is a concrete painting with strong and decisive tones that reveals in all its majesty the great personality that the painter manages to convey in his works.

The fundamental reason in the final phase of his artistic career is the continuous search for the Nature that surrounds him. His plein-air sessions exemplify how the Romani is an observer convinced to carry out his task: to transmit his feelings. Nature, the teacher of life, has forged her style made of wide spaces created by the shrewd mastery in amalgamating the colors that in her hands become a world, "her world".
