lente

GIOVANNI CARNOVALI called IL PICCIO (Montegrino Valtravaglia 1804 – Coltaro di Sissa Parmense 1873) BUST OF A YOUNG BOY (recto) STUDY OF A LYING LION (verso)
Black chalk. Inscribed Faccia at the bottom right corner. 80 x 138 mm.

A student of Giuseppe Diotti, a rigorous neoclassicist, at the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo, il Piccio was also influenced by Andrea Appiani. An artist of restless temperament, il Piccio preferred portraiture and landscape painting to historical or sacred subjects, thus breaking away from the academic tradition. He developed a personal style with impressionistic qualities that anticipated the Scapigliatura painters.
