Giovanni Battista Torriglia (Italian, 1858-1937)


Best known as a Italian genre painter, Torriglia was particularly revered for his sensitive depictions of domestic family life. His paintings generally involve multi-figured compositions and involve a strong narrative element. Torriglia was keen to show that happiness was not dependent on material wealth.

Happy Family
