VERY LARGE STILL LIFE WITH FLOWERS AFTER GASPARE DEI FIORI (1667-1732)
Very large still life representing a very rich floral composition, with falling flowers and fruits on a background of architectural and landscape elements. The vases from which the bouquets of flowers spout out are placed in front of an antique fountain. Made around 1850 after Gaspare Lopez called "Gasparo dei Fiori" (Naples, 1667- Florence, 1732). Technique: Oil on canvas.
Gaspare Lopez, baroque painter "Gaspare dei Fiori" was an Italian painter active in Naples and later in Rome and Florence, who produced important still lifes of flowers and fruit. Our painting takes up the typical theme of Lopez, who specialised in compositions dominated by large flower falls and illustrated outside among architectural and natural elements: rocks, fountains, porticoes, columns and vases. The abundance of his floral decorations, the particularly elaborate setting and the theatrical staging are characteristic of the Baroque period.
