Biography   Fortunino Matania


Fortunino Matania (Italian/British, 1881-1963) is celebrated for his realistic portrayals of historical subjects and allegorical subjects.  In 1902, Matania was invited to London to cover the Coronation of Edward VII for The Graphic.  Matania thereafter covered every major Royal event -- marriage, christening, funeral, and coronation of British royalty, up to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953.

At the outbreak of World War I, Matania established himself as a war artist, much acclaimed for his graphic images of trench warfare.  His painting for the Blue Cross entitled Goodbye, Old Man, showing a British soldier saying farewell to his dying horse, is a famous example of his war work.
