Description

Santa Faz

Firmado y fechado “Francisco de Zurbaran / facit 16(3)9”. El tema de la Santa Faz fue repetido por Zurbarán a todo lo largo de su carrera artística debido a la fuerte demanda por parte de su clientela sevillana, entre los cuales contaba con gran devoción. La versión que aquí presentamos, hasta ahora inédita, proporciona un dato de enorme interés, ya que está firmada y fechada presumiblemente en 1639, por lo que debe ser puesta en relación con la Santa Faz conservada en el Museo de Estocolmo. Tal y como recoge Odile Delenda en su informe “La composición del cuadro sobrecoge tanto por su realismo como por su fuerte dramatismo: el rostro doliente de Cristo está sugerido con ligeros toques de ocre grisáceo lo que confiere a esta imagen, algo desvanecida, una impresión de realidad del evento increíble: si la santa Verónica, enternecida, enjugó con su propio velo el rostro sudoroso y ensangrentado de Jesús parece muy verosímil que la imagen impresa milagrosamente fuera así mismo más bien esbozada, lo que debía corresponder más a la realidad del gesto de la piadosa mujer que lo representado en los retratos medievales hieráticos o anteriormente pintados por El Greco en sus propias Verónicas (…) La complacencia en representar el velo de la Verónica con este acentuado carácter realista, como un trampantojo, se resuelve en estas pinturas del maestro extremeño mediante la ilusión del marco, siendo el único nexo con el mundo exterior unos finos cordeles dobles de los que penda un paño atado con nudos en un espacio neutro e indefinido. Como en las otras versiones imaginadas por el pintor para ese tema en la parte baja un largo alfiler recoge la tela en el centro, creando un “marco en el marco”, totalmente ilusionista. Por otra parte, el paño marfileño, “hiperrealista”, surge con tremenda fuerza en el lienzo de Zurbarán en profundo contraste con la imagen difuminada del retrato esbozado. Al parecer, esta presentación de la tela es una invención propia del pintor, de la cual no conocemos otros ejemplos en la pintura del siglo XVII. Dicha idea nos procura la increíble sensación de trampantojo que encontramos en las obras de Zurbarán”.Esta pintura será incluida por Delenda en el Suplemento del Catálogo razonado y crítico de Francisco de Zurbarán, actualmente en preparación. Con certificado de Dña. OdileDelenda firmado en mayo de 2019. Con certificado de D. Enrique Valdivieso firmado en marzo de 2019. Permiso de exportación temporal concedido hasta febrero de 2020.
