About the Artist
Giovanni Battista Torriglia was born in 1858 in Genoa, Italy. Torriglia's work is renowned for the superb depiction of interior scenes featuring Italian peasant families. He studied in Florence, where he developed his particular skill of capturing the vibrancy of everyday Italian life.
The intricate detail and vivid personalities evident in his figures makes Torriglia stand out from other 19th century genre painters. The cosy effect of his interiors contrasts with the glimpses of outer life which we are afforded and his animals and children particularly are portrayed with affectionate knowledge.
About the Print
This print is finished with a matte "textured" coating, which gives your art an elegant appearance. Then, we framed it in our F6502 "masterpiece" frame, giving a museum quality appearance. All of our richly designed frames have an antique finish with subtle accents to highlight the intricate detail, then a low sheen sealer is applied. The Watermark in the center of the images will not appear on final art.
About the Frame
These masterpiece frames are made of solid wood, with the exception of the F3242 frame, which is cast resin, and then covered with an outer layer of sculpting material called Gesso (pronounced like Jesso). You can see this outer layer on the side views of the frames. Gesso is a traditional mix of a glue binder, chalk, and white pigment, used to coat rigid surfaces, such as wooden painting panels as an absorbent primer coat substrate for painting. It is also used by sculptures to prepare the shape of the final sculpture (fused bronze) or directly as a material for sculpting. Gesso can also be used as a layer between sculptured wood and gold leaf. A collection of gesso sculptures is properly called gypsotheque. Please allow 5-7 weeks for this work of art.
