Jacques de Molay
The warrior monks have been painted by Master Ernando Venzani, the “painter of time”, as critics like to call him. On the theme of the Templars one can see the classicism of the work and the spirituality of the characters, which on the call “God wills it”, have dedicated their life to the conquest of the Holy Land. “Docile like lambs, ferocious as lions”, that’s how St. Bernard of Clairvaux defined them after dictating the first rules of the order. The ochre landscapes, different battles, the faces of the founders, from Hugues de Payns to the last of the Templars, Jacques de Molay who burned at the stake, all revived in artistic geniality and the imagination of Ernando Venanzi. It’s like a journey through time, a return to the past, a somber moment in our history that even today is surrounded by an aura of mystery and curiosity.
