Petrucci, Pier Francesco Mola (1612-1666): Materia e colore nella pittura del \‘600, Rome 2012, p. 390, cat. no. B118, reproduced. Catalogue Note A native of the Ticino, Molamoved to Rome with his family when he was four and would grow to become a renowned Baroque artist.With the exception of two extended trips, one to Venice and the another to Bologna,Mola otherwise remainedin Rome until his death. Mola has a vast oeuvre,which includesportraits of diverse ancient literary figures. Although their identities vary from portrait to portrait, the sitters were all portrayedas elderly bearded figures deep in thoughtwearing a wreath of laurel on their heads.This painting has traditionally been said to represent Socrates, but Francesco Petrucci presented in theartist's monographthat it could be Homer.1 Regardless ofits subject, Mola's talent as an artist is evidenthereinthe fine detail of the beard and the pronouncedfeatures of the face. It has been suggested that this work was conceived as a preliminary for a larger composition, which might explain theproportions of the head.2 1. F.
