Portrait of Count Luigi Arghinto, 1817


Our Lady of Annunciation, c. 1826


A painter, interior decorator, sculptor and architect, he trained in Rome from 1806 in neoclassical circles with V. Camuccini, devoting himself to portrait and history painting. In 1815 he was in Milan, where from 1818 he lectured at Brera, moving close to the Romantic historicism of Hayez. In 1832 he was called to Turin by Charles Albert as superintendent for the redecoration of the Royal Residences (Castello di Racconigi, the Royal Palace, and Castello di Pollenzo). It was he who made the bronze "Monument to the Conte Verde" in Turin, which he finished in 1853.
