"Concert in the Park"

Nicolas Lancret - Oil On Canvas - 76 x 107 cm - (The Hermitage (St. Petersburg, Russia))

"The painting was executed for the Marco Marazzuoli, a virtuoso musician who played the harp and also composed for the instrument. Known also as ""Marco dell'Arpa"" (""Marco of the Harp""), he was part of the extensive Barberini entourage of musicians. Marazzuoli was the friend and fellow countryman of Lanfranco, and Passeri links the fact that Lanfranco's daughter sang and played the harp to Marazzuoli's influence. In his will, the harpist bequeathed this painting to Cardinal Antonio Barberini, who had a keen interest in music. The connections between the papal family and the musicians and composers of the moment were fundamental. In the particular cultural climate of the Barberini circle, thematic comparisons were often drawn between the arts
for example between the iconography of paintings and the themes of operas. One can also connect the painting to the current of representation, in the various arts, of the 'affetti' and of amorous sentiment.The work is datable to the years between 1630 and Lanfranco's move to Naples in 1634. The elaborate harp depicted is based on an actual instrument: previously in the Barberini collection it can now be seen in Rome's Musical Instruments Museum (Museo degli Strumenti Musicali).Suggested listening (streaming mp3, 14 minutes):George Frideric Handel: Concerto for harp, lute and theorbo in B flat major"
