Agostino Arrivabene's vanitas

Immutatio

Agostino Arrivabene is a modern Italian surrealist painter who's work deal with mythological themes and many times his works are based on old medieval or classic paintings giving to them a new interpetation through various distortions and changes. His vanitas works are based in the classic motif of still life vanitas I have already presented. But he extended this theme far more as you can see in his SITE

Il bacio


Vanitas vanitatum


Vanitas su zolla di viole


Vanitas et tartaruga


Il sette (notte)


Proserpina nutrice di pulci


Proserpina ornitofoba


Vanitas con Pieris rapae

This last painting has no skull to remind us death, but the bed with the fragile butterflies, the white sheets piled like sroud give us also an impression for the vulnerability of life beside the light of a day when life wakes up from sleep.
