Eugenio Caprini was born in Leghorn in 1875.
He was a self-taught artist and when he was mature, like the other
artists living in his town, he joined the Leghorn group, taking an
active role in the Caffè Bardi meetings. Together with Gino Romito and
Vinzio his work is similar to Divisionist art in style.
Unfortunately he suffered from ill health right from his youth
having chronic bronchial asthma and unluckily the illness had a marked
negative effect on his work.
Eugenio Caprini died in Leghorn in 1932.
