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.

Federico del Campo was one of the prominent painters of Venetian views in the latter half of the 19th century. Born in Lima, Peru, del Campo, he studied in Madrid with Lorenzo Valles (1830-1910), an artist who himself worked in Italy.

The majority of del Campo's work, like that of his contemporary Rubens Santoro, consists of Venetian views. In choosing to settle in Venice, del Campo joined a significant community of emigrant artists, among them Antoinetta Brandeis and the Spanish colony of painters who included Rafael Senet, Mariano Fortuny, and Martin Rico who had already found a great international demand for their work.

Del Campo's technical precision, lively brushwork and luminous palette are displayed in these works which he painted, among many others, to satisfy the demand for the quintessential souvenir for a newly mobile bourgeoisie in the 1880s and 1890s.

Biography from Odon Wagner Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Federico del Campo was born in Lima but studied in Madrid under Lorenzo Valles (1830-1910). He exhibited a View of Venice in Madrid in 1881. He had traveled substantially in Italy by this time, painting views of Venice, Assisi, Naples and Capri, which he sold to American and European visitors on the Grand Tour popular in the 19th century. Campo was particularly skilled in painting figures, adding a liveliness to his technically accomplished and very detailed works. His closest competitor was Rubens Santoro.
