GIUSEPPE DE NITTIS
De Nittis, who represents a concrete link between the Italian and French plein-air movements, was born in Barletta, Italy, on 22 February 1846; he began his studies in 1861 at the Institute of Fine Arts in Naples, before coming under the influence of the Macchiaioli, through Adriano Cecioni (1836-1886). His early style, represented by The Appenine Pass (Palazzo Reale di Capodimonte, Naples) features a tendency toward gray tonalities, atmospheric effects (showing 500 of 6300 characters).
