Continuing on in the Baroque Room, this is Christ and The Woman of Samaria. It is by Guercino, and dates to 1647.
The Crucifixion of Saint Andrew is a dramatically lit work by Luca Giordino, circa 1650-59.
The Arrest of Christ is circa 1630-32, and is by Matthias Stom.
Here we have Lot and his Daughters. Dating to 1622, it is by Grazio Gentileschi.
Two final views of the Baroque Room end things for the day.
Impressive works again and the room itself is art.ReplyDelete

Beautiful paintings, I like the view of the Baroque Room! Have a great day and a happy week ahead.
You have been spending a lot of time in the Baroque Room, William.ReplyDelete
@Iris: definitely the case.ReplyDelete
@Eileen: I do too.
@David: I did.
...that room is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
I wonder what direction art would have taken if it had not been necessary to appease the church.ReplyDelete
Great work indeed!ReplyDelete
Amazing paintings and those red rooms.... like surrounded by the blood of the artists during that time. I cannot imagine how they must've suffered for their art.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing William,
Beautiful photos! Love themReplyDelete
These remind me of many of the paintings I've seen in Italy.ReplyDelete
@Tom: it is.ReplyDelete
@Anvilcloud: generally speaking the church was a paying customer.
@Eden: you're welcome.
@Bindu: thank you.
@Sharon: they would.

A lot of drama going on in those oil paintings. Lots of finger pointing.ReplyDelete
I like the Baroque Room!ReplyDelete
I wonder if the wings are heavy to wear ? Nice old paintings !ReplyDelete
Beautiful old artworks William, beautifully displayed here ✨ReplyDelete
i always prefer Christ (Jesus) views that make him look super kind and friendly. this is one ... i think of him being a bit dark in color. not white like myself. but any who ... whatever makes your heart happy. do that. ( ;ReplyDelete
Yes, again I'm touched by the exceptional detail and lighting, it really draws a person in. Nice room too, I like the shade of paint.ReplyDelete
The colours at top (first work) are striking!ReplyDelete
@Gemel: it's well arranged.ReplyDelete
@Eve: so do I.
@Grace: I think so too.
@Beth: perhaps, yes.
@Karen: it does.
