The Wedding Dress

The following is taken from Mario Previ's description of the painting.

The idea for this painting came to me when two friends, who had just celebrated their wedding, unexpectedly cane to visit me. The brides dress had particularly caught my attention. The bride on that day, was more radiant than ever. What could I paint to capture the memory of that moment? I tried to put myself in the shoes of a young bride of past times. Who knows how many times she dreamed about the dress she was to wear for her "Big Day" and the sleepless nights checking every detail. It is a simple painting, I think. I Painted the explosion of light from the candle on to the dress and the face of the young girl and painted it under glass.
