Biography

A painter and frescoist. We know little about his education, but in 1850-51 he went to study in Florence and Rome, and later to Paris, where he adopted a moderate form of French Romanticism. His painting tended towards historical-literary subjects. Back in Turin in 1860, he became Professor of Painting at the Accademia Albertina. He exhibited his works widely in Italy and abroad (Paris, London, Dublin, Vienna and Philadelphia).
