Review

“La Fioraia” – as the title lets imagine – refers to the lady’s job that, together with her soft features, assumes a noble behaviour. The way in which André creates his subject confers to the piece a real essence and the woman herself assumes vitality. She stares at the viewer with a seductive and almost sad gaze that gives value to the whole scene. The gesture to hold the bunch of peonies closed to her breasts alludes to the lady’s fear to lose romanticism and love, as if the flowers could assure her. Self-confidence is instead the sensation that transpires by watching how the girl is portrayed.

With this painting André approaches Romanticism in a different way that correspond to the subjects’ maturity and experiences. A passionate and almost sensual romanticism is what transpires from the this painting.
