Land of Fire
Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is reproduction of a painting based on “Land of Fire” by Wilhelm von Gloeden of about 1905. Wilhelm von Gloeden was born in 1856 in Wismar, Germany and studied painting in 1876 until he was forced to leave due to tuberculosis. He went to Italy for his health and, except for three years during the First World War, settled in Taormina, Sicily. He became famous for his nude photographs of young men and was scrupulous in sharing his profits with his models. He exhibited in London, Cairo, Berlin, Philadelphia, Budapest, Marseilles, Nice, Riga and Rome. He died in 1931 in Taormina. This image portrays a scene of Vesuvius viewed from Posillipo from the terrace of the Villa Barbaja. The terrace has five naked young men lounging in a manner reminiscent of Ancient Rome.
