Description / Expertise

Camillo Innocenti was an Italian genre painter born in Rome to Augusto Innocenti, a wealthy architect. He first studied at the School of Fine Art in Rome before joining the studios of Antonio Mancini in Rome from 1889 and then Domenico Morelli in Naples. In 1901, he visited Spain with Mancini studying Velazquez and the local folk subjects and costumes.
From 1903-1914, he exhibited regularly at the International Art Exhibition Venice. He also exhibited at the Great Art Exhibition in Berlin and at the Secession in Rome. From 1910s to early 1920’s along with several other Italian artists he collaborated with the Italian cinema industry creating works of art and sets for films. He spent time in Paris and during the 1930’s moved to Egypt where he became Director of the Fine Arts School in Cairo. Innocenti died in Rome on January 4, 1961.
Examples of his work can be found at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath, the Brooklyn Museum and the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome.
The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
