Biography from Auctionata:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

From 1845 onwards Giuseppe Raggio studied painting and exhibited his first works in Genoa.  He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and was a student of Giuseppe Bezzuoli.  Here he made the acquaintance of the painter Giovanni Fattori, founder of the Tuscan artists' group Macchiaioli.

In Rome he met the landscape painter Giovanni Costa, who had a significant influence on Raggio's choice of subject matter.  He continued to paint religious subjects but devoted himself increasingly to the subject of cattle farming, finding the motifs for his watercolors and oil paintings in the Lazio countryside.

His works were shown in Dublin, Turin and Milan.  In 1915 Raggio was honored with the Order of the Crown of Italy. (tfa)
