Der Hass [Hatred] (1896)
by Pietro Pajetta
Italian, 1845-1911

Pietro Pajetta) was an Italian painter known for his genre art, which often depicted rustic and everyday scenes with a focus on the human condition. His works are characterized by an exuberance of feeling and a keen observation of life’s various facets.

“Der Hass” (Hatred), painted in 1896, is one of Pajetta’s more evocative works. It takes inspiration from Lorenzo Stecchetti’s “Canto dell’Odio” (Song of Hate), a poem that narrates the story of a rejected suitor who seeks revenge on the corpse of his beloved. The painting is a dark and powerful representation of hatred and vengeance, capturing the intensity of the suitor’s emotions as he enacts his revenge.

The artwork is notable for its dramatic composition and the raw emotion it conveys. Pajetta’s use of dark, muted colors and stark contrasts creates a haunting atmosphere that reflects the theme of the poem. The painting’s subject matter and its execution make it a compelling study of the darker aspects of human emotions and the lengths to which they can drive a person.

Pajetta’s life was marked by his service in the Italian army during the War of Italian Independence and his subsequent struggles with economic instability. Despite these challenges, he managed to create art that resonated with the public and earned him recognition at various exhibitions. “Der Hass” stands as a testament to his artistic talent and his ability to translate complex emotions into compelling visual narratives.
