Painting, oil on canvas, depicting a battle, measuring 60 x 100 cm without frame and 75 x 115 cm with frame, by Jacques Courtois known as the Borgognone (Saint-Hyppolite 1621 - Rome 1676).
This grandiose battle scene in terms of size and pictorial quality is to be counted among the artist's masterpieces and presents the peculiar stylistic characteristics of the Baroque age including the dynamic development of the narrative and the bloody realism.
The scenography with the fifth of knights in the foreground is peculiar to the French master, as well as the jagged line of the horizon and the wide sky furrowed by clouds and clots of smoke released by the artillery, which confuse the profile of the mountains and the forts.
This painting made with remarkable expressive force recalls the excitement of the fray of his best works made for the Medici family, moreover here we can see how peremptively a greater coloristic vivacity emerges which makes the painting even more pleasant and beautiful.
