Luxury Gothic


Gotico di lusso. Si sa che nella bottega di Botticelli si discutevano le idee di Savonarola sull’arte. Il frate aveva dichiarato buoni e santi i pittori antichi. Botticelli riprende gli stili del ’300 caricandoli di pathos e presagi. Se la svolta fosse sintomo di una crisi religiosa o solo la ricerca di una possibile nuova moda in linea con i tempi, non ci è dato sapere. Il dipinto è per un cliente privato e, malgrado l’austerità, i colori intensi e le splendide linee evocano una religiosità sontuosa.

Luxury gothic. We know Savonarola’s thoughts on art were discussed in Botticelli’s workshop. The friar had said the old painters were good and holy. Botticelli gestures back to trecento styles, intensifying pathos and foreboding. Whether the change indicates a religious conversion or just an exploration of a possible new fashion to suit the penitential times, we cannot know. The artist is painting for a wealthy client and for all its sombreness, the rich colour and wonderful lines make this a decidedly sumptuous piety.

    Just about all of whatever you say is astonishingly precise and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. This piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. But at this time there is actually one particular point I am not too cozy with so whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual main idea of your issue, permit me see what the rest of your visitors have to say.Nicely done.
