Detailed description

Picture "Avarizia", framed

The Neapolitan Armando De Stefano paints the symbolic figure of avarice in Rembrandt-like contrasts of light and dark. The work, created as part of the cycle "I sette peccati capitali" - "The Seven Major Sins" for BolaffiArte in 1978, shows De Stefano as a master of characterisation. The purple-clad man observes everyone who approaches him with suspicion and distrust. The bearded face with the prominent hooked nose and the thin-lipped mouth is depicted by the painter with ruthless conciseness. The forearm running across the lower edge of the picture with the hand adorned with rings seems like a barrier that repels visitors and supplicants. It is left to the viewer to decide what treasures the miser has hidden in the crumpled red cloth. In any case, they are earthly goods that will not stand the test of time and eternity.

Photolithograph in four colours, signed by the artist, numbered on the back. Limited edition 5,000 copies. Sheet size approx. 28 x 21 cm (h/w). Framed in a silver solid wood frame with passe-partout, glazed. Size 42 x 35 cm (h/w).
