Francesco Gioli, studies of a peasant girl


FRANCESCO GIOLI (San Frediano a Settimo PI 1846 - Florence 1922) STUDIES OF A YOUNG PEASANT GIRL
Black chalk. Signed FGioli; 445 x x 210 mm. Authenticated on the verso in ballpoint pen Dichiaro che questo disegno è di Francesco Gioli. Franca Cerrina Gioli.

Born into a well-off family, Gioli studied first at the Accademia in Pisa with Annibale Mariani. Later he enrolled on Antonio Ciseri and Enrico Pollastrini's courses in Florence. His early career was devoted to history and genre painting, but, following the meeting with Signorini and Fattori in Florence, he began to study landscape painting and a touch of naturalism emerges in his work. This became more apparent with his frequent trips to Paris, where he studied painting by French landscape artists of the '30s. Gioli’s painting enjoyed great success and popularity from the end of the 70's. At the end of the century his paintings had a rarified atmosphere and complex, intentional luminosity that place his work in the context of central-European secessionism. At the start of the 20th century however he concentrated on works that clearly recall Impressionism, with bright vigorous use of colour.
