"At the Foot of the Mountain," a painting by the late Mauro Chiarla, portrays a lush vineyard against the backdrop of majestic green mountains under a clear blue sky. This Post-Impressionist artwork employs bold colours and expressive brushwork to convey nature's vitality.

Mauro Chiarla, an Italian-born artist influenced by renowned masters such as Matisse, Cezanne, Monet, and Manet, masterfully infuses South African scenes with a Mediterranean-influenced colour palette. His broad brushstrokes ingeniously blend colours for captivating contrasts.

The painting is a celebration of both nature and the human spirit. Rows of grape-laden vines stand beside diligent workers in the foreground. This artwork symbolizes the harmonious relationship between the beauty of the natural world and the efforts of humankind.

Chiarla's legacy endures through his vibrant hues, spontaneous brushwork, and meticulous detailing. "At the Foot of the Mountain" encapsulates both the late artist's profound vision and the timeless allure of nature.

About Artist

Mauro Chiarla was born in Italy in 1949, where he resided until he was eight. Economic hardship following World War 2 made life especially tough for Chiarla's family in Italy, so they immigrated to South Africa in 1957 to start a new life. Chiarla has been in Johannesburg ever since.

Chiarla's deep love of fine art first emerged at primary school, where he discovered a lifelong passion for painting and sketching. Although never formally schooled in art, Chiarla was always a humble yet exceptionally talented artist. Working from his home studio, he began selling his works in the local art in the Park events at Zoo Lake before being discovered more than 25 years ago.

Regarding his artistic influences, it is safe to say that the Impressionists, Post-Impressionists and Expressionists, particularly their use of light and colour, have had the most significant impact on Chiarla. Matisse, Cézanne, Monet and Manet from the European stable and in South Africa, G. Goodman, Hugo Naudé and Titto Fasciciotti were also significant influences.

However, the most significant influences on Chiarla were the scenes he captured and the interaction of people in the scenery – the colours, attitudes and movement.

Chiarla used oil pastels, acrylics, and oil paints as the primary media for his works on paper, board, and canvas. Chiarla sadly passed away in 2022 after a short illness.
