Description:
Antonio Mercurio Amorosi (Comunanza 1660-1738) A peasant girl; and A peasant boy oil on canvas the first, 23½ x 18 in. (59.6 x 45.7 cm.); the second, 23¾ x 18 1/8 in. (60.3 x 46 cm.) a pair (2) A Roman painter who executed occasional altarpieces and public commissions, Amorosi trained with Giuseppe Ghezzi and worked primarily as a genre painter who specialized in paintings of rustic children and romantic youths. Early sources state that Amorosi's first genre scenes were commissioned by Juan Francisco Pacheco Tellez, Duke of Uceda (1649-1718), and date from the beginning of the eighteenth century. Amorosi became increasingly attracted to a circle of anti-academic artists who were excluded from official circles and opposed to the Academy, but his portraits of youth nevertheless brought him officially recognized success. Paintings such as the present pair depicting pretty peasant children playing musical instruments belie their own sophistication; despite their unassuming naturalism, they reflect the ideals of the intellectually advanced Arcadian movement prevailing in early eighteenth-century Roman poetry.
