The abduction of Sabine women by Pietro da Cortona

The canvas on the mythological plot “Abduction of Sabine women” was written by the order of another patron of the artist – Roman patron Sacchetti. A classicistically well-thought-out composition combines it with a turbulent, theatricalized expression.

Frantic turns of figures, perhaps, are borrowed from the works of Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini, with whom the artist collaborated and whose talent was highly appreciated.
