View of Naples - Gouache 19th century

Ancient painting "Gouauche" with contemporary frame representing a view of Naples.

 In this painting, the painter tries to capture the suggestions from the research of contemporary landscape painting, an example provided by the so-called School of Posillipo and some of its passionate interpreters.

The technique of gouache painting, commonly known in the artistic jargon also as "gouache" from the French, was born in Europe in the sixteenth century, it is recognized and distinguished in the landscape painting for its originality and delicacy.

This process of gouache is carried out through the use of particular pigments, as they are very similar to acrylic tempera, but differ in that they have a much lighter rendering on the canvas, which appears almost opaque.

So, ultimately, the gouache technique is a type of tempera color made heavier and more opaque with the addition of a white pigment (e.g. ceruse or gypsum) mixed with gum arabic (gum tragacanth was once preferred).

The result is a more opaque and brighter color than the normal tempera color.

Conditions: Excellent condition.

Measures: 84x64cm.

Provenance: Naples (1880/90)
