Oil on canvas.
The Immaculate Conception is a Catholic dogma, proclaimed by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, which states that the Virgin Mary was preserved immune from original sin from the first moment of her conception.
The historical path that led to its definition lasted for at least four centuries, during which furious theological disputes were intertwined, especially between Franciscans and Dominicans.
The theme of the Immaculate Conception began to appear in art since the debate was heated, Initially the theme was approached by Gothic artists in a cryptic way, referring to the viewer the conclusion, perhaps putting a series of symbols and metaphors easily decodable.
In the fifteenth century the works of art became more evident, but it is from the seventeenth century, with the Counter-Reformation, that the most famous iconographic image of this dogma was established.
The essential characters are those of the woman of the Apocalypse: an ever-young woman - because she was chosen and conceived before all humanity - clothed in the sun (the light that radiates from behind), crowned by twelve stars surmounted by an apotheosis of cherubim, Who rests her feet on a crescent moon and often, as in this depiction, crushing the head of the defeated apocalyptic dragon; She has her eyes turned to heaven, in a contemplative attitude, her hands often joined in prayer, other times wide open and stretches upwards in a gesture of momentum.
The pictorial production of this subject became very wide and extremely varied, in the wake of the disputes that concerned it.
Similar productions to the one proposed here are found, at the end of the '500, above all between Lombardy and Genoa.
As an example from Lombardy can be cited Stefano Maria Legnani, called the Legnanino (1660-1715).
In the Ligurian context, in particular in Genoa, where the image of the Immaculate Conception had an extraordinary diffusion from the end of the sixteenth century to the whole Baroque age, becoming the central theme through paintings and sculptures in the decorative programs of the city buildings, this subject is very close to the one proposed, in the production of Paolo Gerolamo Piola (1666-1724).
The painting in question had been restored and displayed in a revival frame.
