Pair of reverse painting from the Venetian school of the XVIIth century

Pair ofreverse painting from the Venetian school of the XVIIth century representing Demeter in silver carved wooden frames. In Greek mythology, Demeter is the goddess of agriculture and therefore of crops. Its attributes are the sheaf of wheat, the sickle and the calathos, which is a rush basket for harvesting, an object associated with fertility. She is represented quite in the flesh, dressed in the long dress of the peasant women, naked on the shoulders, surrounded by her attributes and sitting on orchards, fields, agricultural plains. Glass painting is linked to the glass industry and its diffusion. Introduced to Venice in the Middle Ages, it reached full maturity in the second half of the 16th century thanks to the influence of Byzantine glassmakers installed on the island of Murano since the 13th century. Venice then became one of the production centers of this art from the 16th-17th century. The Venetian workshops are credited with two groups of paintings under glass: one with deep blue skies and figures in the foreground against a background of landscapes, the other using models in fine hatching that evoke the technique of engraving. is a unique technique because the work is made on the back of the glass. While on a canvas we sketch the composition in broad strokes to then perform the flat areas of color to gradually finish with the details, in reverse glass painting we proceed in reverse. Contrary to the normal technique, to execute the details (the nose, the eyes, the flowers) before the background (the face, the landscape), the spectator having to look at the finished work on the unpainted side of the plate. glass. The artist painter on glass begins with the finesse of the work to finish with the funds. So down to the smallest detail, the painter must imagine from the start the final version of the image to be produced, knowing full well that he will also have to deal with a "mirror effect" during the execution of the image since what is painted upside down on the right is right side up. Dimensions Length 38.9cm - Height 34.2cm.
