Nude by Miraglia Ermogene

Nude by Miraglia Ermogene

The Italian painter Ermogene Miraglia (1907 - 1964) can be well framed among the great artists of nineteenth-century Neapolitan painting, for the perfection of design and for the tones and harmony of colors. The art of this master oscillates between Renaissance pictorial classicism and Impressionism, almost a synthesis of these luminous periods and is linked to the highest traditions of Neapolitan painting of the last century.

Miraglia is self-taught (although later he will be awarded the title of honorary academy by the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples), but feels the magic of French Impressionism and the influence of the painters Antonio Mancini and Vincenzo Irolli, with whom he shares the taste for the full bodied and materic pictorial dough.
Precisely with Vincenzo Irolli, who will always consider his great teacher, he will make a sincere friendship and learn from him how to clump and concentrate the color in the brush strokes and strokes and to create the light with combinations of color spots.
