Biography

A painter and engraver and a prominent figure in the School of Rivara. After studying with G. Camino, he went to Geneva and then to Paris (1858-60), where he approached French Realism. In 1862 he showed Environs of Rivara (Turin, GAM), his first realist work, at the Promotrice. From 1861 to 1872 he was the driving force behind the Canavese group. After staying in Rome in the 1870s, he moved to Paris, returning each summer to Rivara.
