Fabbio Fabbi (Italian artist, 1861-1946)

Fabio Fabbi was born in Bologna, Italy in 1861. As a young man, he enrolled at the Academia Di Belle Art in Florence and studied sculpture and painting in the 1880s, winning prizes in both categories. After his studies, he traveled to Paris, Munich, and finally Egypt. Upon his return to Italy, he dedicated himself solely to painting and was honored with the distinction of professorship at the Academia. Fabbi painted prolifically images of odalisques and bazaars which were well-received by the public. His images were commercial for his day, and thus he succeeded in painting more works than many of his contemporaries in Italy. From 1884 onward, Fabbi regularly participated in exhibitions in Turin, Milan and Florence, gaining popularity and laud mostly because his works were colorful and amusing. Although the subject matter was not novel to his audience at this point in time, his impressionist technique and the movement of his figures were quite appealing, as in the present lot. And most of his interesting paintings were inspired by his visit to Cairo during his trip to Egypt in 1886 .
