Giovanni Segantini, All’ovile, 1892
GIOVANNI SEGANTINI’S SHEEPFOLD: A MASTERPIECE WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED
The painting All’ovile by Giovanni Segnatini is one of Segantini’s masterpieces of Italian Divisionism and late 19th century European painting.
It is a painting in which the artist used both the Divisionist technique and the addition of gold in the brushstrokes to give it a symbolic value.
All’ovile is one of three paintings that focus on the effects of artificial light in a stable and, being the last, concludes this quest.
