“The Violinist from Barcelona (B Version)” – Cesare Catania – Contemporary Painting

Year: 2016

Dimensions: 170 cm x 120 cm

Technique: Oil and acrylic on canvas




In this painting Cesare Catania represents all the emotional energy that the music scene in front of him is transmitting. The violinist belongs to the symphonic orchestra of the Music Palace in Barcelona and is concentrated on playing Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”. The theatre is enraptured by her skill and by her presence. The woman plays and hovers in the artist’s canvas that captures the figure, the violin, the bow and the fluttering arrangement. All this in a painting that only highlights the protagonist and that fades the rest of the scene as if it was a photo was taken with a camera and with the subject in synchronous movement: the subject is perfectly focused and the background is blurred.
The woman that is fully arched to the left, flaunts her violin and her stage presence during the concert. The woman’s head and thick hair are deliberately shifted to the left to enhance the arched body position, all aimed at giving light and emphasis to the musical instrument.
