Attr. to Pietro Bardellino (Naples, 1731 - 1806) Allegories of cherubs Oil on canvas, 57 x 89 cm; with frame 65 x 99 cm The stylistic, formal and compositional characteristics of this elegant pair of paintings allow the work to be attributed to the hand of Pietro Bardellino (1731 - 1806), an artist of Neapolitan origin. His painting was influenced by the influence of de Mura (1696 - 1782), of which he was a pupil, and then oriented towards ways and tendencies of Solemn influence, with a free, lively painting, with bright and vivid colors. Member of the Academy of Fine Arts in 1773 he was called as an assistant by Luigi Vanvitelli. In 1779 he became master of the Royal Academy of drawing and painting.
