Arturo Ricci, Italian 1854 – 1919

A Florentine Arturo Ricci received his instruction at the Academy of Art under Professor Tito Conti.  Conti retained an admirable sense of composition and grace of figures; his drawing and color were excellent but his remarkable facility for representing inanimate objects was his forte.

Apparently Conti had been able to instill in his pupil an excellent ability of interpretation.  This provided Ricci with the means of portraying scenes of everyday aristocratic life with which he was most familiar.  They also gave the artist an opportunity for a most wondrous display of “costume art.”  Presented in meticulous detail – white satin, black jack-boots or flower petals – all were done with exacting justice and they each appeared to have the look, surface and texture of the actual item.  These family views were the artist‘s preference, although he did at intervals devote himself to the study of landscape.

The artist exhibited his work throughout Italy and Germany while spending the remainder of his life in Florence. 

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner’s, The Children.
