Joseph of Arimathea, who is holding Jesus and clasping him in a shroud, and Nicodemus, who supports Jesus’ legs, are placing him in a stone sarcophagus. Saint John the Evangelist, cloaked in red, is in the foreground with his back to the viewer. Christ’s mother, the Virgin Mary, dressed in a blue robe, collapses in despair at the left. She is surrounded by Holy Women, including Mary Magdalene who wrings her hands in sorrow. Other grieving figures in the background of the painting engage each other in conversation, enhancing both the devotional and dramatic character of the painting. Luca Giordano was one of the most celebrated artists in Naples. He produced a huge quantity of work, including altarpieces, mythological paintings and decorative fresco cycles. Giordano was internationally successful and traveled widely, working in Naples, Venice, Florence and Madrid. This altarpiece was painted early in Giordano’s career when he was only in his late teens. It shows the influence of the equally well-known and prolific painter Jusepe de Ribera, with whom he may have trained.

Its development reflects changes in the views commonly held at that time on the universe and man’s relation to it. As landscape painting developed, the Dutch were quick to acquire a taste for Italian settings and motifs. In this painting, Both uses Italian motifs, such as ruins, as pictorial elements; he then combines them with the typical genre scene of a group of men playing cards. Also called The Ruins of the Temple of Saturn, this painting is a version of the original Jan Both painting of the same subject that is owned by the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, Germany. It was probably painted by either Jan Both or his brother, Andries. [Gallery label text] Born in Utrecht, Both subsequently traveled to Rome, where he remained from 1635 until 1641, when he returned to Holland. He was among the leading “bamboccianti,” as the Dutch painters were called who assimilated their native genre tradition with the classical landscape tradition they discovered in Italy. This popular composition, an autograph version of which survives in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich, shows low-life types amusing themselves near the formidable ruins of the Temple of Saturn.

He looked at our Canaletto and immediately said that it is by William James, an English associate of Canaletto.” In addition, there are numerous references throughout the file about scholars viewing the painting and finding the early attribution to Canaletto dubious due to the style. Unfortunately, not all previous curators were fanatical about documenting such information, so we do not know exact names. Since then there have been numerous William James’ views of Venice that have been compared to the MAG painting (photocopies in file) and have been found to have a similar style.

Both musicians look directly out from the painting, their eye contact and lively expressions establishing a sympathetic psychological relationship with their audience. A parapet that separates performer from spectator links imaginary and actual space; dramatic lighting, naturalistic details and richly saturated colors all merge to intensify the viewer’s visual experience. The meaning of Two Musicians leaves much to the imagination. The two figures here could suggest a contrast between naïve youth and experienced age; the violin and the lute both refer to ideas of balance and harmony. Concert scenes sometimes symbolize the sense of hearing or the idea of harmony and love. Whatever the interpretation, these paintings of concerts were, like the music they represent, extremely popular with their public during the Baroque period. As a young man, Strozzi entered a monastery where he painted religious subjects. After his father’s death, he was allowed to leave the monastery to support his mother; he refused, though, to return after she died and was forced to flee his native Genoa. In 1631, he settled in Venice, where he became a Roman Catholic prelate, or church official. He enjoyed continuous success as a painter for the rest of his life.
