The Representation of Fireworks in Early Modern Europe

“Fireworks are intrinsically fleeting, transitory, fugitive. Their power lies in the brutality of their transience: dying the instant of their birth, consumed in the act of consummation. There is something ironic, even poignant, then, in the attempt to render permanent through the medium of art a phenomenon as ephemeral as fireworks.” –┬áKevin Salatino


Below is a collection of paintings of fireworks. Happy 2017! Enjoy.
