Gaetano Chierici (Italian artist, 1838-1920)


Attended the Reggio Emilia School of Fine Arts in 1850 and 1851, Chierici continued his studies at the academies of Modena and Florence before completing his training in Bologna under the guidance of Giulio Cesare Ferrari. His early work was initially influenced by the Purism of his uncle, the artist Alfonso Chierici, and Adeodato Malatesta but subsequently by the innovations of the Macchiaioli painters. It was in the late 1860s that he took up anecdotal genre painting with domestic interiors, which came to be his field of specialisation.
