Ciocciara

Ca. 1862. Oil on canvas, 125 x 75 cm.

A frontal image of a young woman. She stands, leaning on a doorframe, wearing the typical costume of peasants from southern Lazio. This motif was frequently employed by Spanish painters traveling to Rome as they could rarely resist the temptation to make a depiction of customs like this one. The model´s ample blouse, bluish skirt and dark bodice contrast with the painting´s overall greenish-brown color scheme. Also notable are the relaxed brushstrokes, applied with broad, broken gestures. The lighting and the demarcation of the figure´s silhouette help to build the figure in space. In that sense, this work is close to the sobriety of Corot or Courbet´s French realism, while the imprecise drawing of the young woman´s hands and the resultant sense of movement recall some of Velasquez´s works. This painting was acquired for the Museum of Modern Art on 18 November 1940.
