Domenico Pesenti

Palazzo Te

Palazzo Te

Pesenti, now an old man, stares at us with a serious look on his face. During the last years of his life he often chose to paint figures immersed in darkness, where only the face is illuminated by rays of light. He expressed his artistic sensibility in various forms, although never losing his characteristic classical touch. Here he uses the golden light to soften the details of the face and to create an atmosphere that is very different from the analytical quality of other works.
