  • The Wolf of Gubbio, c.1437-44. Egg tempera on poplar wood. 87 x 52-4 cm. National Gallery, London.  Stefano di Giovanni –Sassetta (fl. 1427) This painting was part of the group (the San Sepolcro Altarpiece) intended for the high altar of San Francesco, in Borgo Sansepolcro, to honour the life of St Francis of Assisi.  It was meant to represent a two-sided polyptych; the front –the Virgin and Child with Saints– and the back, a few scenes from the life of the founder of the Franciscans for the friars to contemplate. The representation of the story of the Gubbio wolf is the only one that is not based on Bonaventure’s vita of St Francis (the Legenda maior) but on the I Fioretti di San Francesco. Legends are full of special details but, as I do not wish to enter into narrating the story itself, I can simply say that the taming of wild beasts by holy persons is something of a classic topic in hagiographies. Yes, St Francis tamed the wolf that had eaten some inhabitants of Gubbio but the sermon (could it be otherwise?) he addressed the people of Gubbio touched their hearts and they accepted the repentant wolf into the town as another member of the society. In the painting, therefore,  the paw gently laid on St Francis’s hand represents the moment in which the wolf accepted the deal offered by the saint by which all the people in town would kindly offer food for free if only the beast would stop attacking them. Even before his untimely dead, Francis was considered a saint, and he is, perhaps, the best known and the most honored of Catholic saints. The heretic atmosphere of St Francis’ time, which ran rampant during the twelve and thirteenth centuries, was an important element of the equation of sainthood and obedience to the Church on the part of the saint.  Penitents groups abounded and went from town to town preaching about sin and repentance. We cannot forget the Albigensian crusade that the Pope launched in 1209 against the south of France heretics. Francis secure papal approval for his community and, therefore, his group would be free of any (likely) accusation of unorthodoxy. Well, that is another story that is well off bounds this art section! JesúsLV.

  • Stefano di Giovanni detto il Sassetta è sicuramente il più grande pittore senese del XV secolo. Soprattutto è il segnale che Siena non rifiuta le novità rinascimentali, ma le reinterpreta a modo suo, in un densissimo intreccio tra tradizione e cultura nuova. Ovviamente anche in Sassetta c'è la nostalgia gotica di Simone e dei Lorenzetti, anche se in questo caso bisognerebbe parlare più di aggiornamento che di sentimento nostalgico. E qui entrano in scena le novità fiorentine, cioè Masolino e Ghiberti, ma anche Donatello e perfino Masaccio: quel che Sassetta intuisce è che le inquietudini dei grandi senesi del XIV secolo e quelle dei fiorentini del XV nascono da premesse simili. Esplorare una nuova cognizione dello spazio e dominarlo ocularmente, dare conto della centralità dell' uomo in questo spazio. Esprimere la sua interiorità. L' unica differenza, più di forma che di sostanza, è nell'accentuazione metafisica che la pittua senese dà dell'esperienza umana. E qui interviene Sassetta. Per lui, in opere capitali come la Madonna della Neve e il Polittico della Lana costruire immagini secondo una griglia spaziale e prospettica non significa costruire una storia, ma un dispositivo metafisico, mentale, dunque divino. Uno spazio visuale, per usare i termini di Didi Huberman. Il suo uso della linea non è né melodico, né plastico, ma cerca di creare un equilibrio geometrico mistico. Una sorta di Piero gotico. È soprattutto il segno che la longhiana cultura "umbratile" non è una reazione tardiva alla cultura rinascimentale, ma la sua ombra fin da principio #sassetta #siena #renaissance #rinascimentoumbratile #robertolonghi #simonemartini #didihuberman #masolino #ghiberti #lategothic #art #arthistory

  • #transformationtuesday Save Venice has funded the conservation of this small devotional panel painting of the Virgin and Child thanks to generous support from Mel Oldenburg. The work is now housed in the Palazzo Cini Gallery in Dorsoduro and is a fine example of the work of Sienese artist Stefano di Giovanni, called Sassetta, from the 1430s. #svconservationstories #sassetta #palazzocini #venice #savevenice

  • La cura del Corpo e dello Spirito... Le terme naturali sono un toccasana per il corpo, per depurare, eliminare le tossine, rigenerarsi e dedicarsi al silenzio e al rilassamento. Poi se le terme sono quelle di Sassetta, alla Cerreto, inserite nel contesto unico della Maremma, tutto è estremamente più bello. La bellezza del bosco, l'inizio Dell autunno, il cibo biodinamico e l'energia della natura. Mi voglio trasferire qui 😍😍

  • The Sienese School of painting flourished in Siena between the 13th and 15th centuries producing great artists like Duccio, whose work shows Byzantine influence. His pupil Simone Martini, the brothers Pietro and Ambrogio Lorenzetti and Domenico and Taddeo di Bartolo, Sassetta, and Matteo di Giovanni all paved the way for a “new” painting of emotional realism with a unique narrative long before the emergence of the so-called Renaissance in Florence. There are many pieces like this crucifix which hangs in Pienza that can only be attributed to the vague “Master of Siena” and predates Duccio. The real study of the Renaissance must begin in Siena.

  • The Descent into Limbo, c.1445. Tempera and gold on panel,  37.8 x 47.1 cm; a fine panel previously attributed to Sassetta but now thought to be a work by the anonymous artist known only as the Osservanza Master, who was active betweenc.1425 and 1480 approximately. The personality and identity of this Sienese master, still a matter of discussion among art historians (for whom Sano di Pietro’s young age works might fit in the range of what would be acceptable characteristics –motifs, compositional solutions– on the Osservanza Master’s executed works), most certainly began around 1430 under the inspiration (probably) of Sassetta or even artists of previous times such as Masolino and Giovani da Milano. But since 1940 (Longhi) perception regarding to attribution of works has shifted, though Boskovits, along with other experts (Berenson, Brandi), were inclined to think most of the artworks as belonging to a young Sano di Pietro style, as pointed before. Originally, it was part of a predella of an altarpiece (dispersed) that presents scenes of the Passion of Christ. These cycles of stories of the life of Christ (common during this time) are among those panels most widely acknowledged and admired by both public and pundits alike. They form one of Siena’s best cultural treasures of painting pertaining to the XV century. The scene visually narrates the account of the descent of Christ into hell after He arose from the dead (which is written in the apocryphal book of Nicodemus). La Resurrezione –a fourteenth-century poem by Niccolò Cicerchia– might perhaps be behind the local Sienese literary influence under this painting (Harvard Art Museum). Absorbing colour which is not matched everywhere else during this times; just observe the terrific contrast the artist created with the utter pitch dark of the background in the cave with the radiance of Christ’s surrounding aureola in soft yellowish tones.
