Purple chalk, 183 x 162 mm. Signed with the monogram BR. The drawing dates back to the 20s of the past century.

Raffaele Boschini was born in Venice, the son of Romualdo, a xylographer and a zincographer. He began his artistic training by attending the courses of Vedute di paese e di mare at the Venetian Accademia di Belle Arti. From 1911 to 1912 he enrolled in the Scuola di nudo and followed the course of architecture that allowed him to obtain in 1914 the license of Professor of Architectural Design. In 1915 Boschini exhibited, in one of the rooms of the Black and White of the Terza mostra della Secessione in Rome. In 1917 he appeared on the Milanese artistic scene, and in 1918 he exhibited at the Esposizione Nazionale di Belle Arti della regia Accademia di Brera. In 1921 he decided to settle on a permanent basis with his family in Milan. Around 1928 he founded the Studio d'Arte Boschini, with which he inaugurated an intense activity in the field of illustration, creating among others the advertising campaign for Campari in 1929. Although working for advertising graphics and illustration in general, he continues to cultivate his vein as an artist. In 1933 he took part in the Mostra Nazionale di Arte Futurista at the Palazzo Ducale in Mantua. However, the futurist season of Boschini is soon exhausted and the artist returns to work on portraits. Raffaele Boschini died in Milan in 1960.
An exhibition of drawings by Boschini from the 1920s was held in Venice, Ca' Pesaro, in 2012.
