Giovanni Battista Camuccini

(Rome 1819 – 1904)
Rocchetta in Sabina. Santa Maria  dei Monti, 1840 c.
Oil on board, 27,5 x 31,6 cm

The light achieves sentimental values, underlying a lyrical calm vision of a benign nature. The serenity, the grace of the clear yet fiery sky, the luminous reflections.
It is not a question of a purely sensorial approach – mere visibility, the charm of colours and light – but a transcription of the figurative data into a sentimental echo, aimed at making that reality incorporeal, lightening it and translating it into accents of exquisite, rarefied musicality.
