Painting oil on canvas measuring 50 x 60 cm without frame and 80 x 90 cm with frame depicting a Mediterranean coastal view by the painter Charles Francosia Grenier Delacroix (Marseille 1720 - Berlin 1782).
The painting is a small but very elegant example of the Italianizing landscape of European taste.
This painting is undoubtedly a typical example of Delacroix's painting which explains its formal elaboration very well; in fact, once the idea of the classical landscape has been overcome, he anticipates more enlightened and romantic solutions in the style of Vernet or Lorrain. Thanks to his apprenticeship in Italy, in particular in Naples, he develops an ideal view of the Mediterranean coast which is a synthesis between realism and ornamental taste, a marine transposition of the Arcadian sentiment which shows a refined pictorial management capable of interpreting brightness with wise transparent drafts and interesting narrative aspects.
This painting is undoubtedly an excellent work of French painting given the great ability to make the details of the painting as precise as possible and the fading of the landscape thanks to a well-defined and studied perspective. The wise use of perspective in the background is also very pleasant and knowing how to perfectly mix the first floor with a leaner second one able to guarantee balance and order to the whole canvas where the airy width of the panorama and the sense of diffused brightness give a truly remarkable sense of peace to the viewer.
