"Small Table From Achille Vertunni Roman Campaign 19th"
ACHILLE VERTUNNI. He attended the Royal Institute of Fine Arts in Naples, under the supervision of Gabriele Smargiassi. He was influenced by the Posillipo school. At the Bourbon Biennial Exhibition of 1851, he was awarded a tie with the painter Nicola Palizzi and in 1853 he moved to Rome. His first themes were inspired by historical events, such as the portrait of Pia dei Tolomei, but he then devoted himself to the landscape which, from the 1970s, became the almost exclusive subject of his paintings. Its sunsets in the Roman countryside and in the pontine marshes, sometimes animated by cowboys and herds of buffaloes, are characteristic. He participated in the Vienna Exhibition of 1873, the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1878 and the International Exhibition in Rome in 1883. His works can be found in the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome, at the Florence Modern Art Gallery (Torrente near Narni), Turin Modern Art Gallery (Paludi pontine, 1863), Modern Milan Art Gallery (Maccarese Landscape) and the Revoltella Museum in Trieste ( Roman camagne). The Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples owns the Campagna Romana canvas, 79.5x48 cm, purchased in 1904. [1] As an adult, his studio in Rome was a reference for many Roman critics and artists, frequented by the nobility and politicians of the time. Visitors to his studio on Via Margutta, in Rome, where Achille Vertunni used to give parties and banquets, were historical figures of the time, such as General Alfonso La Marmora, composer Liszt, Edward VII of England - while still Prince of Wales - with his wife Alessandra of Denmark and the Danish royal family, characters from the Risorgimento and visitors to the "Grand Tour". He died in Rome in 1897, after twenty years of progressive paralysis, caused by lead poisoning, due to prolonged use in contact with pigments based on this material, very harmful to health. He was treated until the end by his wife Guendalina and his daughters, Giuseppina and Pia, the last of his thirteen children. oil on cardboard signed lower right ... small color jumps
