About

This drawing is a study on the portrait of an important statesman of the Florentine Republic during the XVI century called Pier Soderini. It can be attributed to Cristiano Banti thanks to a comparison with other of his works. Cristiano Banti (was an Italian genre and landscape painter, one of the leader the Macchiaioli movement of Tuscany. Banti was born into a middle class family and studied at the Accademia di belle arti di Siena with Francesco Nenci. From the 1854 he moved to Florence and started attending the Caffè Michelangiolo, an important meeting place for local artists. It was here that he had his introduction to the Macchiaioli movement. After that, he became determined to produce paintings that would capture the natural effect of sunlight, going on many long outdoor excursions with his associates; especially Telemaco Signorini, who had a great influence on him. In 1861, he went to Paris to study with Constant Troyon and Camille Corot and in 1879 London in 1879 tstudy english art, Divisions between him and the other Macchiaioli became deeper and he was often criticized, so he retired to his family's villa in the countryside. Although still shy of public recognition, he accepted an appointment as Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts and served on the commission charged with reorganizing the Uffizi. In 1887, he was back in London, studying the Old Masters at the National Gallery and making the acquaintance of James McNeill Whistler.
