A painter, watercolorist and printmaker, Enrico Vegetti won the Mylius prize for the fresco painting at the Brera, where he exhibited regularly from 1885. His works were included in exhibitions in Rome, Florence, Munich and London. A traveller in Europe beyond the Alps, he recorded in notebook his impressions, which were then translated into etchings, often enriched, in printing, by tonal effects.
