Oil painting on canvas measuring 63 x 47 cm without frame and 80 64 cm with frame depicting a vase of flowers by the painter Tommaso Realfonso (Naples 1677 - 1748).
In this Vasi di fiori the luxuriance of the florid and intricate bouquet, of full Baroque taste, is coupled with an expository severity, based on their pyramidal grouping and accentuated by the seventeenth-century type of the metal container and by the roughly chipped stone base that has a convex movement .
The apprenticeship of our painter and therefore his direct training took place at Andrea Belvedere, the only emerging teacher between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, of whom Tommaso was a pupil between 1692 and 1694: the year of the departure of the Belvedere for Spain.
The Realfonso had to be linked to his most representative works, whose main nucleus is preserved in the Correale museum in Sorrento, going back up to the most naturalistic imprint of the Porpora.
Of course, it should be borne in mind that Realfonso, on this reinterpretation of the Neapolitan still life of the seventeenth century, grafted a variety of explanations that led him to use the most varied iconographies, confirming his flexible personality underlined by modern critics, which recognizes Massillo as great ability to blend expressive severity with an absolutely rich and sparkling chromatic palette.
