Additional Information

Artist: Ludovico Tommasi (1866-1941)

Born in Livorno in 1866 into a wealthy family sensitive to art, Lodovico Tommasi first studied the violin, but in 1881 the family moved near Florence, hosting the "macchiaiolo" painter Silvestro Lega for the artistic training of his children. Lodovico's strong propensity for painting was refined in this context, without academic teachings. Right from the start, a particular sensitivity for color was evident in Ludovico. In the mid-1990s he frequented Torre del Lago (Lucca) with his brother Angiolo and the circle around Giacomo Puccini, where he became friends with Plinio Nomellini. In the first decade of the 20th century he moved away from the pure description of reality to return landscapes full of lyricism and feeling, in which the brushstroke flakes, the colors become evocative, the human figures interpenetrate with a nature full of symbolic meanings. In the 10s, however, the need to represent reality returned to Tommasi, reconnecting with the "Macchiaioli" tradition, albeit with a personal attention to the contrasts between colors and a sort of musical harmony of tones. His works were exhibited at the main local and national events: in Livorno at the First Exhibition of Fine Arts in 1886 and at subsequent exhibitions; he participated uninterruptedly in the Venice Biennale from 1899 to 1936. Ludovico Tommasi died in Florence in 1941.


19th Century / 1801 - 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.

20th Century / 1901 - 2000

The twentieth century is characterized by the prevalence of the bourgeoisie over the working class and by the discovery that life continues to be a struggle for survival and to improve its quality. Technological progress, instead of favoring this development, becomes an instrument of mechanization and drying up of man, who needs to look for a "soul supplement" and new forms to express it. Therefore, a whole series of artistic currents are born that create works expressing the interiority of man, which evoke reality from within rather than represent it, and depict it using, freely, shapes and colors. We therefore have Decadentism with Art Nouveau, Matisse and Braque's Fauvism, Picasso's Cubism, then Expressionism with Munch, Kandinskij's Abstractionism and Metaphysical painting by Carrà and De Chirico. There are numerous currents and groups of artists and intellectuals who use Art as a Manifesto of their thought, often also with a political connotation.

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.
