Biography Edoardo Federico Martino
Eduardo de Martino (1838 Meta-1912 Londron) was a naval officer and marine painter working in South
America (Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil, from the 1860s). He was a court painter to the Brazilian Emperor Dom Pedro. He later settled in London
and was appointed Marine Painter in Ordinary to Her Majesty Queen Victoria.
Not long after his arrival in London from South America in 1876, Eduardo de Martino came into contact with the Prince and Princess of Wales with whom he formed a lasting friendship. In 1895, Queen Victoria made him Marine Painter in Ordinary (he was the last to hold that appointment). His connection with the court brought him patronage from
other crowned heads and members of the royal family.
