Giuseppe De Nittis
Rain - Riva Degli Schiavone, Venice - Figures in Cityscape by Giuseppe De Nittis

1872

$38,349.44

About

A stunning oil on original canvas by Italian painter Giuseppe De Nittis. The painting depicts figures walking up and down the promenade along River Degli Schiavone, Venice. The work is executed on a Lefranc & Cie canvas which is stamped verso with their logo which depicts an anchor and a caduceus entwined together. It's likely De Nittis took this canvas with him when he travelled from France back to Italy for a two year trip between 1870 and 1872. In that time he painted a number of views of Venice. Signed lower right and dated 1872. Framed dimensions are 18 inches high by 23 inches wide. Provenance: From a private collection of Italian impressionist paintings Giuseppe de Nittis studied initially under G.B. Lalo and followed courses at the Naples institute of fine arts before going on to work under Adriano Cecioni at the so-called 'College of Resina', where he acquired the rudiments of techniques used by the Macchiaioli, the Italian counterparts of the French Impressionists (1855-1860). He moved to Paris in 1867 and entered Gérome's studio, where he gradually distanced himself from his beginnings and inclined progressively towards a gentler approach to painting which focused on people and subjects drawn from Parisian life and society. He made his Paris Salon debut in 1869, when he showed his Woman with a Parakeet and Gathering of High Society, and continued to exhibit at the Salon in the years that followed. He returned to Italy between 1870 and 1872 but went back to Paris in the latter year and remained there for good. He quickly made a name for himself in Parisian social circles and was equally well received when he spent some time in England. His best work is generally accepted to be his scenes of elegant young ladies strolling in the streets of Paris and London, but his engraved work also deserves a degree of respect. De Nittis died at the age of 38 and at the height of his career. His body of work is that of a keen social observer whose painting, typically in refined colours, possesses undoubted quality. That said, his work attracts less adulation today than it did at the time.
