This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Augusto Moriani, 19th and 20th centuries, was a Neapolitan artist who specialized in watercolor genre portraits of "tipi napolitani", or workaday people around the Bay of Naples. Much of his life he lived in Sorrento, although it is not known if he was born or died there.

One Italian source refers to Moriani as a Sorrentine watercolorist. He was not the first in Italy to produce a body of such portraits, but almost certainly the first in Naples, along with perhaps Edoardo Forlenza.

Works are known dated from 1881 to 1903. Works in oil are known, as well as a few landscapes of scenes around the Bay of Naples. Three public/ecclesiastical commissions are known. In 1866 he painted the frescoe in the town hall of Afragola (a town near Naples) of the founding of Afragola in 1140. In 1886, he painted the oils depicting views of Afragola that hang in the meeting room of that town hall. And in 1902, together with Pietro Baroni, he painted the frescoes of the patron saints of Sorrento in the eight panels of the cupola above the choir in the Cathedral of Sorrento.
Paintings are generally signed "A Moriani", and infrequently simply "Moriani".
