EDITORS COMMENTS
Death of St. Scholastica, c. 1700" is a captivating oil painting by Gregorio de Ferrari that depicts the poignant moment of the passing of St. Scholastica, an influential figure in Catholicism and the twin sister of St. Benedict. In this baroque masterpiece, Ferrari skillfully captures the emotional intensity and spiritual significance surrounding this event. The composition centers around a serene room where St. Scholastica lies on her deathbed surrounded by fellow nuns who mourn her imminent departure from earthly life. The artist's meticulous attention to detail is evident in every brushstroke, as he portrays each character with utmost realism and expression. The play of light and shadow adds depth to the scene, emphasizing the solemnity and introspection that permeate throughout. Ferrari's masterful use of color further enhances the narrative power of this artwork; warm hues dominate the background while cool tones accentuate St. Scholastica's ethereal presence amidst her earthly companions. This print beautifully captures all these elements, allowing viewers to appreciate Ferrari's artistic genius up close. It serves as a timeless reminder not only of religious devotion but also celebrates human connection and our shared experiences in facing mortality. Luisa Ricciarini has expertly preserved this significant piece from Italian art history through her careful reproduction techniques, ensuring its longevity for generations to come.
