Born in Venice in 1872, in 1888 Vittore Antonio Cargnel enrolled at the Venice Academy, but his training took place above all in the studio of Cesare Laurenti, a well-known and esteemed painter with a symbolist tendency, and in the observation of the works of Ciardi, Favretto and Nono. In 1895 he participated in the I Biennale with a work, Averte faciem tuam, domine, a peccatis meis, which is clearly under the sign of Nono and Laurenti, and which was marked with the prize of the president of the jury, William Michael Rossetti. He also participated in the II and III Biennials, always with works of character between the symbolist and the intimist, while in 1901 he was present at the Salon in Paris, in St. Petersburg and in Leipzig, and finally at the VIII International Exhibition in Munich, with landscape paintings in which he was defining a painting very attentive to atmospheric vibration. In 1900 he moved near Treviso, where he built his own bell foundry, in 1910 another transfer, this time to Sacile, where he would stop until defeat of Caporetto.In 1924 he became an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. In the meantime, his exhibition activity continued, which saw significant stages in Italy and Europe. Cargnel died in Milan in 1931.

Artistic technique: Pittura

La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.

Technical specification: Oil on canvas
