THE ISLAND OF CAPRI
Born 1860 Signed & dated 1888
Oil on canvas 14 ½ x 19 ¾ inches
Framed size 18 ½ x 13 ¾ inches
Born in Perugia, Italy and studied under Valeri at the Academy there.
He started painting landscapes of well-known Italian places much in the manner of Franz Unterberger which were extremely popular.
Later on it seems that he visited the Arabia and painted a number of Orientalist scenes, often of exotic Arabian women.
By the 1920’s he can be found painting and illustrating in the Art Nouveau style, again mainly glamorous women as his subjects.
It is not known where he died.
This would be an earlier example of his work and painted with very deft brushwork.
