The course centres on the painting of the Macchiaioli, who were active in Tuscany during the Italian Risorgimento. These include, among others, Tommaso Fattori , Telemaco Signorini and Vincenzo Cabianca , whose works will be examined in class.
Students will acquire techniques for creating various effects, painting from life in the same pictorial chiaroscuro used by the Macchiaioli, based on Renaissance techniques.
The Macchiaioli were able represent reality in the time it took to make a drawing, in full colour and without foregoing accurate depiction.
The course is offered for both small groups (maximum 6 students) and individuals.
1. “Group Course” Option
This formula allows you to recreate the atmosphere of a Florentine workshop, and to share ideas and techniques during the creation of the paintings.
1 lesson: 2 hours and 15 minutes
