L. Bazzaro Oil on Wooden Hardboard Italy XIX-XX Century
DESCRIPTION Oil on wooden hardboard. The farmyard of a farmhouse, where hens scratch around in the shade of a large leafy oak, is rendered in the characteristic pictorial style of Leonardo Bazzaro, who uses quick and broad brushstrokes, with soft outlines, to create an enveloping atmosphere of peaceful everyday life. Milanese by birth and training, Leonardo Bazzaro is considered a lively exponent of Lombard impressionism, dedicated to chromatic and luministic research. His very fruitful production of works was dedicated in the early years to Milanese interiors, but then attracted by open-air painting, he moved to landscape views and in particular he was attracted by the color of the Venetian lagoon, which led him to stay for a certain period in Chioggia. The painting is presented in a coeval frame.
