Portrait of the Artist’s Father, Gervasio Ligari

Giovan Pietro Ligari

This portrait must have been painted before 1724, the year in which the sitter died. Ligari’s father had been living with his son since 1711. The figure’s powerful immediacy, enhanced by the bare surroundings, is typical of Ligari’s work and a significant example of Lombard naturalism.
