Antonio Fontanesi Art

Italian, 1818-1882

Antonio Fontanesi was an Italian painter, engraver, teacher, and soldier. He was born on February 23, 1818, in Reggio Emilia. He was one of the most important 19th-century Italian painters, though somewhat unknown. After fighting in the First Independence War, he moved to Geneva, where he met local painters that encouraged him to paint landscapes and to open to European artistic novelties. In Paris, Fontanesi met Corot and Barbizon painters, whilst in London, he was influenced by Turner’s and Constable’s works. He taught in Lucca, Turin and then in Tokyo. Fontanesi's artworks are very suggestive, rich in lyricism and melancholic, romantic and according to some scholars, Pre-Symbolist atmospheres. Fontanesi observed and studied natural reality to reach a deeper and more universal motive and for this reason, he is considered one of the most emblematic Italian Romantic painters of the European Romantic movement. Fontanesi was also a fine draftsman and expert etcher, his etchings and lithographs are characterized by the same research on atmospheric values as in painting, with synthetic and essential light effects. Fontanesi passed away on April 17, 1882, in Turin.
