Johann Baptist Kirner

Italian pilgrims, resting in front of a painting of the Virgin Mary (near Cervara), 1834

About the object

The work shows that Kirner explored new artistic paths in Italy, both in terms of motif and colour. Although actually a quiet prayer, it is portrayed here as a dense, lively genre scene in the open air - colourful and flooded with light. In 1834 the painter sent the painting from Rome to Munich where it was very well received.
