Featured Andrea Solario Italian Renaissance of the Milanese School Paintings
Today, I wanted to feature a talented painter. All you need to know about him is summarized in the long title of this blog. Hehehe...Lets just get started. The first featured painting by Andrea Solario is the Lute Player. It looks simple enough. The maiden is idealized. Her attire is fine and rich. Its a classical Renaissance portrait. 5 stars worthy.
This painting is called Ecce Homo. Its from the scene were Jesus is presented to the angry mob after his first tortures. Andrea Solario's painting focuses on his face. The hair is idealized, but realistic. His face has a few tears rolling out his eyes. This lovely painting deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see Salome with the head of John the Baptist. What I liked best is Salome's dress. Both Salome and the guard are wearing the best Italian clothing of the Renaissance period. During this period, some churches started to commission paintings that got closer to commoners. Thus, these Biblical characters are dressed like Italians. Everything in this painting is idealized. From the clothing, the hair, the cup and the sword. In any case, Andrea Solario's lovely painting is 5 stars worthy.
In this painting, the Virgin Mary is feeding her Baby Jesus. She is resting her baby on a Green cushion. This scene takes place in the middle of a forest. Both are looking at each other in the eye. Other than a religious painting, this painting celebrates the bond between a mother and child. This wonderful painting is 5 stars worthy.
This last featured painting shows Mary Magdalene. She is preparing the oils to anoint Jesus' dead body. The Textures and the see through sleeves are really pretty. Truly, this pretty darling is 5 stars worthy. Well, I hope that you liked this small feature. Frankly, from all his paintings I only liked 5. His other works are peachy, but not so 5 stars worthy.
