PAINTING OF THE NEAPOLITAN SCHOOL OF THE MID-TWENTIETH CENTURY (YEAR 1962) DEPICTING A REALISTIC STILL LIFE OF FISH AND CRUSTACEANS ARRANGED ON A HORIZONTAL PLANE, WITH SEA LETTUCE, A TERRACOTTA JUG CONTAINING AN OCTOPUS AND WATER AND A BRASS SCALE. IT IS A REALISTIC AND DARING COMPOSITION OF VARIOUS SPECIES OF FRESHLY CAUGHT FISH, EXUDING THE WETNESS AND SMELL OF THE SEA, DEFINED BY A DENSE BRUSHSTROKE AND A PARTICULAR RANGE OF COLOURS, WHICH BRING OUT THE RED-PINK COLOUR AND THE GREY-BLUE HUES OF THE FISH SCALES. THE COUNTERTOP HOUSES THE FISH ON DISPLAY, SURROUNDED BY SEA LETTUCE AND ARRANGED AMONG THE VARIOUS OBJECTS PRESENT, A WATER JUG IN WHICH THE OCTOPUS IS IMMERSED AND AN ANTIQUE WEIGHING SCALE.

THE FISH IS CLEVERLY LIT. THERE IS A SUBDUED BUT DIFFUSE LIGHT THAT ILLUMINATES THE MARINE PREY, WHILE THE BACKGROUND ACTS IN CONTRAST WITH LIGHTER, PASTEL TONES. THE CHIAROSCURO EFFECTS ON EVERY SINGLE ELEMENT OF THE COMPOSITION AND IN GENERAL BETWEEN THE HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL PLANES OF THE SCENE GIVE THE PAINTING GREAT DYNAMISM, LIVELY COLOURS AND AN EXCELLENT REALISTIC RENDERING. THE FISH IN THE FOREGROUND ARE PORTRAYED WITH THE EXUBERANT VITALITY OF FRESHLY CAUGHT PREY, SHIMMERING WITH SILVERY AND PINKISH REFLECTIONS, DENOUNCING THEIR VITALITY, EXPRESSED BY THE BRIGHTNESS OF THEIR EYES, LARGE AND OPEN, AND THE CONTORTION OF THEIR BODIES.

THE PICTORIAL STYLE THAT DEFINES THIS MARVELLOUS WORK OF MEDITERRANEAN MARINE ICONOGRAPHY IS REALISTIC. THE CATCH REPRESENTS SOME OF THE MOST COMMON TYPES OF FISH THAT POPULATE THE SOUTHERN SEAS. THE PAINTING IS PART OF THE GREAT TRADITION OF STILL LIFE PAINTINGS WITH FISH THAT BROUGHT NEAPOLITAN PAINTING TO THE FOREFRONT ALL OVER THE WORLD IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY. THIS GENRE THEREFORE HAS ANCIENT ORIGINS, WITH GOTHIC AND CARAVAGGESQUE ATMOSPHERES, AND HAS BEEN WIDELY INVESTIGATED AND EXPLORED, AND SOME OF THE GREATEST PAINTERS OF THE GENRE, SUCH AS RECCO AND RUOPPOLO, ARE NEAPOLITANS. THE PAINTING HAS BELONGED TO THE COLLECTION OF THE PERMANENT ART GALLERY OF CASTELLAMARE DI STABIA IN NAPLES.

IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. ON THE BACK OF THE CANVAS THERE IS A CERTIFICATE OF THE GALLERY WITH SHORT BIOGRAPHICAL AND ARTISTIC NOTES OF THE PAINTER MICHELE VISALLI: ARTIST WITH GREAT PICTORIAL VIRTUES, HE HAS PARTICIPATED IN ALL NATIONAL EXHIBITIONS, COLLECTIVE AND MANY PERSONAL IN ITALY AND ABROAD: AS SPAIN, GERMANY, UNITED STATES, GREECE (ATHENS), FRANCE, TRIPOLI AND BENGASI.
