Artists Biography

Giuseppi Magni

Italian born 1869
Giuseppe Magni was an Italian painter, born in Pistoia in April 1869. He was a pupil of Professor Ciseri at the Florence Academy. Magni specialised in and is highly regarded for his detailed genre and interior scenes.

The nineteenth century produced many of the most enduring images of provincial living in the whole of European art. Giuseppe Magni made his name with his delightful pictures of family gatherings with their wonderful feeling of togetherness. Both Magni and Torriglia who both painted during a similar period are renowned for creating fabulous interiors of extraordinary quality. Very few of these images ever hint at the fact that nearly all of whom pictured would have to labour in the fields, even children from the early ages of eight or nine.

Magni’s appeal is clear for all to see, with his natural compositons and unlimited ability with his palette, we are left captivated with his charming and hugely appealing canvases.

Magni was noted for winning presitigious competition in Alinan in 1900.
