FILIPPO (PEPPINO) MAENZA
Peppino Maenza was the only son of Giuseppe Maenza, a teacher of Italian and painting who lived in Boulogne. For health reasons Rossetti visited the family in the autumn of 1843 and the winter of 1844, forming a close friendship with Peppino, who was a few years his senior. It was Peppino who encouraged his interest in French illustrators like Garvarni and Tony Johannot, who so profoundly influenced his early style. After showing much early promise, Peppino gave up as an artist, emigrated to Australia and disappeared. Rossetti tried to raise money for his benefit in 1860.
