Description

Francisco Pradilla. This high quality piece was created during the Aragonese artist's final period. During his long stay in Rome, between 1874 and 1896, the painter visited the Pontine Marshes located to the south-east of the city. Many artists would go there to paint this landscape, which was as magnificent as it was unhealthy owing to the presence of malaria, capturing from life the gradations of light on the water of the lagoons and in the sky. Pradilla painted this beautiful foggy landscape in 1907. In it appear humble peasants, from one of the families that worked this harsh but beautiful land, who cross a lagoon in a boat. The chromatic allure of the foggy skies, the trees coming into bloom and the realistic figures is continued in their reflections on the water.
