Genoese school of painting

 

The Hermitage collection Room of Italian Painting

 

 

THE PICTURE GALLERY of the Hermitage possesses a rich collection of works by Italian masters of the Florentine, Neapolitan, Venetian, Bolognese and Roman schools of painting. This set represents some canvases by the Genoese school which was formed in Italy around the 1630s under the influence of the Flemish and Venetian painters and Caravaggio. Some characteristic features of the school are the treatment of religious subjects as scenes from the life of the common people, the introduction of pastoral and animalistic genres, which later enjoyed great popularity in Western European art, as well as the depiction of romantic scenery where inspiration was drawn from nature.
