Wonderful Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan ... endless universe of images and creative ideas. Each painting is a world of its own, to explore and dissect ... to find the particular. And they can make you play a lot of games. Often, in contemporary art the taste of the macabre wins on beauty. In classical art, however, the horrible becomes interesting thanks to the painting technique. This is the case of the SKULL, which is manifested in the paintings by Jusepe de Ribera, Tiziano, Bramantino or El Greco. Who, with their loose brushwork, nerve and precise make beautiful even skulls. The authors belong to Classicism, to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Baroque ... Surely these are lessons of pure style, of laborious technique, recognizable personality.
