#pinacotecanazionalebologna #Reni Guido #Samson (detail) #wounded #philisteen #warriors . This masterpiece first commissioned by the #Zambeccari family and set on a fireplace in the city palace, came later in public hands and was displayed in the palace which in #Baroque time hosted the 'Podestà' charged by the Pope to beware the city. Apart from the different symbolic meaning that the canvas assumed beeing immediately understandable as an advice toward sedizious people, it became a manifest of classicist new wave in its higher degree. It is involving to consider the phisical beauty of the fallen which the Jewish hero had with no mercy slain and killed. Stilistically is fascinating to consider the anstract firmness and still of colours forms and details as is the accurate definition of the 'huberk' in chain mail covering the body of the figure closest to us. #guidoreni #moving #masterpiece #picoftheday #breathtaking #nowhereelse #MIBAC #polomusealeer #emiliaromagna #unaregionecolcuore
