Wandering in the halls of the Pinacoteca di Brera, it is not difficult to discover amazing things inside small and large paintings. Inside each work the details reveal the excellence.
Girolamo Genga is an Umbrian artist of the '500, very attentive to the suggestions of expression of Raffaellol. In the Holy Conversation With Church's Doctors, his masterpiece, emerges his love for Raffaello, from which it inherits both the features of the faces, that complex compositional choices. However, a new original tension is particularly pronounced in the games of the hands of bystanders. You could say that the technical virtuosity was placed at the service of a more restless representation of reality, that sometimes is eccentric. And precisely in those remarkable twists of hands, that speak more of the faces, it is described a quintessential Renaissance now exhausted.
