Riccardo Pellegrini - Portatrice d'acqua

Riccardo Pellegrini - Portatrice d'acqua
Oil on panel - Hand signed - inizio sec. XX

Oil on panel by the Milanese painter Riccardo Pellegrini (1863-1934). He distinguished himself for his intense chromaticism and a particular late-romantic vein for anecdotes, thanks to which his works do not reflect the fixity of the subjects but a shared narrative harmony. The painting depicts a commoner intent on bringing water, in a picturesque alley of a rural village. There are hens, pigeons, a peasant who peeks out of the window, a cut of sunlight that reveals a life dedicated to work, not without some flirtatious notes. From a private collection, in good condition.
