ARTISTA CARRACCESCO DEL XVII SECOLO
71 x 96 cm
The author of this intiguing painting, where the spatial suggestion is cleverly constructed from the lines of the tree-lined rows and from the alternating chiaroscuro of the plans, is evidently to be found in the ambitof those artist, emilians and not, who in Rome, on the tracks of Annibale Carracci and his close collaborators, gave life to that extraordinary line of artistic culture that became a real autonomous and independetn genre: landscape painting.
Of this naturalistic context are also the fortified houses visible in the distance, high up, on the right, and the boat with beefies fishermen landing at the shore, at the bottom, in the ravine of a river, very similar, these, for an Italic and fast stretch, to some figurette of the countries by Pietro Palo Bonzi, also called "il Gobbo dei Carracci".
In the direction of the frame the sealing seal of an ancient collection: three lilies and, at the bottom, a tower are visible. Could be a branch of the Roman family of Bennicelli Coutns.
