Original Oil on Board

Size: 38 x 44 cm

Adriano Bonifazi (1848-1914) 

Bonifazi was trained in Rome's most prestigious Art Institute, displaying early talent.

He quickly established himself in Rome and Capri to become one of Italy’s leading late C19th portrait artists, favoured by wealthy Italians and tourists who were amazed by his ability to produce ‘picture perfect’ portraits of superb quality and detail. 

His decorative works are found in collections in both Europe and America, including an example of his work in the V&A Museum in London. He tended to concentrate on relatively small portraits and his auction record for one work is over £30,000 in America. Quite a number of his works of the quality now offered are currently sold as prints throughout North America and Europe .

This pair of paintings are both signed and dated Capri 1877 and are painted on top quality panels which produce some of the most stable surfaces to paint on. 

They represent Bonifazi at his absolute best - ‘a young boy and girl looking wistfully out of the picture space from a striking light blue background which evokes thoughts of a bright Mediterranean sky'.
