Description

JOSÉ DE RIBERA (Valencia, 1591 – Nápoles, 1652). Firmado bajo la llave "Josephus Ribera Hispanis Valent(inus) Civitatis Setabis ________ Partenope F." Obra conocida a través de numerosas versiones y copias. En concreto, las versiones más conocidas son la que se encuentra en el Musée des Beaux Arts de Rouen, que anteriormente perteneció a la colección del Conde Raty-Menton y a la colección Magne, siendo adquirida por el museo en 1895; y una segunda versión del mismo cuadro que se conserva en la Alte Pinakothek de Munich, estudiada en su momento por August L. Mayer. La versión que presentamos tiene medidas idénticas al cuadro de Rouen, mientras que el de Munich es algo más grande. De estas circunstancias, podemos concluir que el original y sus réplicas bien pudieron salir del taller de Ribera ante la fuerte demanda de este tipo de figuras de santos de medio cuerpo tan habituales en la producción de nuestro artista. En nuestro cuadro llama poderosamente la atención la calidad de las manos, en especial, la que se muestra delante del espectador, recogiendo parte del manto marrón sobre las piernas del santo. Están hechas con esa técnica tan característica de pintor de Xátiva, mucho empaste, con una textura en la superficie del lienzo gruesa que sirve para recrear cada una de las arrugas o pliegues de los nudillos y de la piel. Asimismo llama la atención la calidad con la que están pintados los pliegues del manto marrón, donde se acentúa el claroscuro de raíz tenebrista y que sirve para dar monumentalidad a la figura de San Pedro.

JOSÉ DE RIBERA (Valencia, 1591 - Naples, 1652). Signed under the key "Josephus Ribera Hispanis Valent (inus) Civitatis Setabis ________ Partenope F." Known work through numerous versions and copies.Specifically, the best known versions are those found in the Musée des Beaux Arts in Rouen, which previously belonged to the collection of Count Raty-Menton and the Magne collection, being acquired by the museum in 1895; and a second version of the same painting that is conserved in the Alte Pinakothek of Munich, studied at the time by August L. Mayer. The version we present has identical dimensions to the Rouen painting, while the Munich version is somewhat larger. From these circumstances, we can conclude that the original and its replicas could well leave the workshop of Ribera before the strong demand for this type of figures of half-body saints so common in the production of our artist. In our painting, the quality of the hands, especially the one shown in front of the spectator, is strikingpicking part of the brown cloak over the saint's legs. They are made with that technique so characteristic of the Xátiva painter, with a lot of filling, with a texture on the surface of the thick canvas that serves to recreate each of the wrinkles or folds of the knuckles and skin. Also striking is the quality with which the folds of the brown mantle are painted, where the dark chiaroscuro of tenebrist root is accentuated and which serves to give monumentality to the figure of San Pedro.
