THE PAINTING «THE DEATH OF DIDO» PERTAINING TO THE CIRCLE OF CARLO FRANCESCO NUVOLONE

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №3 (67)

The article considers variants of the paining «The Death of Dido» associated with the name of the 17th century Italian painter Carlo Francesco Nuvolone. All of them feature a central group of characters drawn similarly but being different in format and size of the support. These variants are represented by artworks from museum, corporate and private collections, including the collection of Yekaterinburg Fine Art Museum. Examination of the copying methods employed in the first half of the 17th century suggested the use of instrumental methods for creating variants of the painting «The Death of Dido». The abundance of the painting’s variants is explained by the popularity of this mythological story. It was placed by the contemporaries in the context of the «woman debate», the term applied to the literary controversy concerning the gender role of women that continued in Europe from the 15th to the 17th century. Its influence found reflections in painting. The stories of great or well-known women became topical. Particularly popular in early 17th century painting were the dramatic stories of death of Lucretia, Sophonisba, Cleopatra and Dido.

“THE ADORATION OF THE CHILD” FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE EKATERINBURG MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS: ON THE ISSUE OF ICONOGRAPHY

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №3 (59) September, 2017

The article studies the iconography of the Adoration of the Child, which became widespread in the 14th-16th century Italian painting. A new approach to the interpretation of events related to the birth of the infant God arose on the basis of the visionary experience of Birgitta of Sweden. The first compositions associated with the Birgitta iconography appeared in the late 14th - early 15th century in the works of Pietro di Miniato, Martino di Bartolomeo di Biagio and Turino Vanni. The popularity of the new interpretation of the plot was connected with the advent of the Mariological Revival, which determined the humanistic orientation of Italian culture in the second half of the 14th century. The regulatory framework that influenced the development of the theme of Worship was closely related to the liturgical drama and the lauda, a genre of ritual laudatory songs, and later to religious mysterious representations, sacre rappresentazione, separated from direct liturgical practice. Another direction that influenced the composition of the Worship was the Christmas installation of presepe introduced by Francis of Assisi in 1223.

ON THE ATTRUBUTION OF THE PAINTING«STORM» FROM THE COLLECTION OF EKATERINBURG FINE ARTS MUSEUM

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №4 (48) December, 2014

The article describes the outcome of technical studies and stylistic analysis of the painting "Storm" in the collection of Ekaterinburg Fine Arts Museum. Examination of the wooden support and the paint coat structure has confirmed that the painting belongs to the 17th century Dutch school. Previously, the picture was attributed to the Dutch marine painter Simon de Vlieger. Based on analogues discovered by the author of this article, the painting has been reattributed to the Dutch painter Pieter Mulier the Elder (1610 – 1670) and is dated as created in 1630-1640.
