Pazzo / Madman, 1898

Biography

After studying at the Accademia Albertina, he made his debut in 1892 at the Promotrice in Turin. Receptive to divisionist and symbolist influences, he devoted himself to human and social issues (the cycle of frescoes for the Chamber of Labour in Turin, now lost), and to landscapes and portraits. In 1909 he taught figure painting at the Accademia Albertina. He took part in the main national exhibitions until the end of the 1920s. A comprehensive critical reconstruction of his work has yet to be made.
