Description
Like Palizzi’s painting of the stable and newly-born calf, Mucca e vitello presents the viewer with a simple scene: two animals watched over by a girl in a what seems to be a forest clearing opening onto a meadow. At the centre of the work, the space is dominated by the very pale coat of the cow, which contrasts strongly with the dark coat of the calf. Once again, the realistic scene conveys a feeling of close communion, almost of complicity, between the person and the animal.
The theme of the sanctity of natural life is expressed in a pictorial language that composes forms in solid blocks brought to life by the intense colours.
