By the 1880s, Gaetano Chierici was already a extremely wanted painter, with exhibitions in Italy and overseas and rich commissioners world wide.
Though the eye to element and the examine behind the composition are spectacular, Chierici’s works are neither stiff nor boring. In truth, the artist is ready to convey to life his footage with nice care and love in direction of each single particular person or object simply because it transpires on this work, La Maschera, the place a little bit boy scares his mom by shocking her within the kitchen sporting a grotesque masks.
Painted in 1874, this is among the quite a few variations of the topic painted by the artist. When the primary model of La Maschera (1869) was exhibited, the success was fast. Chierici painted a number of additional variations and, relying on the client’s finances, would customise the variations in response to particulars and dimension.
