Self Portrait
by Giovanni Fattori
Giovanni Fattori (September 6, 1825 – August 30, 1908) was a Florentine artist, one of the leaders of the group known as Macchiaioli (with Silvestro Lega, Telemaco Signorini and others). They were forerunners of the Impressionists and, like their French counterparts, were criticized for their paintings lack of conventional finish. Fattori was known for his honesty and candor. From 1869 he taught at the Florentine Academy, work which provided a modest income. One of his late students was Amedeo Modigliani. Examples of his work are at Galleria di Arte Moderna di Palazzo Pitti, Firenze; Galleria Nazionale di Arte Moderna in Rome; Galleria Civica di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, in Turin, Pinacoteca di Brera, Milano and in North America at Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He is honoured in his home town by the Giovanni Fattori Museum in Livorno.
