Tears (1898)
by Giuseppe Mentessi
Italian, 1857-1931 

Giuseppe Mentessi was an Italian painter who is often associated with the Symbolism and Realism art movements. Mentessi faced the tragedy of his father’s death early in life but managed to pursue his passion for art with the support of his mother. 

Mentessi’s work often addressed socio-economic issues and the subject of motherhood. He was known for his scenes that evoke strong emotions, such as poverty, hunger, and anti-militarism, especially during the First World War. His preferred medium was pastel, which he used to create delicate yet impactful works.

The painting “Tears,” created in 1898, is a poignant example of Mentessi’s ability to convey deep emotion through his art. The composition is unique, focusing on two hands clenched by irons trying to shake a weeping head, devoid of any physiognomic connotation. This choice emphasizes the drama and tension of the moment. The use of delicate chromatism, with shades of browns illuminated by blues and whites, adds to the emotional intensity of the piece. The painting is a testament to Mentessi’s skill in expressing feeling and narrative through his art, making him a significant figure in the transition from Realism to Symbolism in Italian painting.
