Caption
A character freely inspired by Mattia Preti (1613-1699), son of an respectable family from Taverna, a Silan village beside Catanzaro, is one of the greatest painters of Italian Baroque. Named Knight of Malta by Pope Urban VIII, he painted between Rome and La Valletta, merging in an original research the chiaroscuro of Caravaggio, the lights of Veronese and the gentle grace of the Guercino. But his uniqueness lies in the dynamism of the depicted characters, melodramatic actors painted while self-celebrating inside almost cinematographic staging. It’s said that the Saint Sebastian mentioned in the illustration, was rejected by the nuns who had commissioned the painting because he was too similar to the plebeian who had served as a model; the Calabrian Knight did not get perturbed and decided to exhibit it in public, so that the young painters could see a perfectly successful portrait.
