My mother - WOODNS




 This second piece is the mother, in a particular context and linked to one of the episodes capitatogli as a child, that the painter remembered very well. The first test of fear. The story in question is this. He was about seven years old and went with some buddies in the afternoon to fish in one of the many canals in the area. Made later in the summer evening. They left the water course when darkness had already been taken over, and everyone walked around their homes. Umbertino to get home as soon as he took a shortcut and run across the cemetery. If you do that, a little flame generated from the summer heat and the phosphorus and sulfur released from decomposing bodies, he is stuck behind. Ran And more and more he had the impression that the mysterious fire we had just with him, frightened and weeping came to the house where his mother was waiting for him sitting in the yard. In the painting we see precisely this woman sitting in the shade of the moon. Dressed as at the time, with hat and long skirt, and its right there is gray in the figure of a child kneeling with his arm and his head resting on the thigh of the woman, clinging in a gesture of despair and looking for comfort. Consolation that the woman and ready to dispense, with a caress. Notice how the arm and the right hand of the woman is in the act of casting a hypothetical flame the boy's shoulders and then descend on the head of the infant, with a loving gesture and cheered. To the right of the boy's perspective we see another small figure is a representation of one of his sisters, the youngest, indifferent to what is happening.
