SUPPOSITION OF THE VIRGIN MOBILE
Giovanni Francesco Barbieri
Simply by Linda Romanowski
I was drawn to the Supposition of the Virgin which is a great oil on canvas decorated in 1650 by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri. Giovanni runs on the strong and bold baroque style with spacious keeping of his humanistic angels through this painting. His use of attractive blues and reds take classic gracefulness to this work of genius. His make use of turns and angling from the faces and bodies of the angels entice me to study this portrait and stick to the flow and direction up wards with the streaming clouds. The Virgin is usually illuminated even so graceful and peaceful as she ascends upward with dignity. Seeing the confronts of the male angels, they appear to have much the same facial features and locks color along with texture. My mind wonders if this sounds Jesus. Christ was her son, God's son, a symbol of love, expect, life, peace, spirituality and moral principles. It appears to my opinion that these Beautiful angels are in flight supporting the Virgin Mary onto her delivery to her final resting place. This kind of artwork has the capacity to teach devoid of words. Giovanni Francesco Barbieri, an German, painted an oil on canvas named it Presumption of the Virgin.
