Saint of the Day: October 26

About the Image:

The canvas belongs to the last period of Giovan Battista Lucini's activity. It is characterized by the strong luministic effects that make the figures of the characters stand out, in contrast with the clear and luminous background of the scene. It stands out for its naturalistic accents, see the wrinkled face of the saint, the deformity of the sick child, and the miserably dressed father who seems to anticipate the beggars of Giacomo Ceruti. The painter's skill also lies in the subtle psychological connotation that he manages to give the different characters, moved by apprehension and amazement towards the miracle occurring before their eyes. The painting stands out for its originality and chromatic solutions that anticipate solutions that would become established in the initial phase of the 18th century. source
