Notes historical bibliographic

Ferdinando Andreini (1843-1922) was an artist trained under the sculptor Ulisse Cambi (1807-1895), professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. Andreini specialized in allegorical works inspired by nature, but his production also boasts other sculptural types, including noteworthy a bust of King Vittorio Emanuele II (1820-1878), commissioned for the hall of the Grand Council of Florence. He exhibited in Florence in 1861, at the Turin Promoter of Fine Arts from 1884 and at the Italian General Exposition of the same year also in Turin.

Age: XIX Century - from 1801 to 1900

The revolutions in Europe between the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, accelerating social, political and economic changes, favor the birth of a new artistic movement, Romanticism, which places sentiment and love of country and that, detaching itself from the forms of Neoclassicism, proposes a style that shows the deep emotions of man, aroused by real life. In particular, in painting, historical subjects, scenes of popular life and patriotic struggle, the landscape as an expression of love for nature and orientalist subjects are imposed. To express emotions and feelings, we begin to use bright colors, the outlines are blurred, the contrasts of lights increase, to then progressively arrive at a painting, with the Macchiaioli first and then with the Impressionists, "en plein air", pure exaltation of emotions, chromatic effects, subjective impressions.
