Luigi Scrosati (1814 - Milan, 1869) was an Italian painter and decorator. While not trained in any academy, he was particularly active and appreciated in Milan in the mid-nineteenth century as a decorator of many urban and suburban mansions. Among these are Palazzo Poldi Pezzoli, Palazzo Litta, Villa Litta in Vedado, Villa Garland Silva in Cinisello (1852), Villa Amalia, Villa Sioli Legnani in Busselton, Villa Cramer to Alserio and Palazzo Serbelloni together with the Palazzos Bertini and Podesti.

As well as figure paintings, he was distinguished for floral still life  in watercolor, with effects that recall the scapigliatura (bohemian modernist painters) to which he devoted himself especially after 1857, when he was struck by paralysis of the lower limbs.

At this time, he started a new genre of painting that earned him in 1863 the chair of all decoration for Milan's Brera Academy.  The success of this project insured his reputation, and he was lauded by two prominent critics of his time: Vespasian Bignami and Gustavo Botta.
