Giuseppe De Nittis



 


 
Giuseppe De Nittis

(b Barletta, Puglia, 25 Feb 1846; d Saint-Germain-en-Laye, nr Paris, 21 Aug 1884).

Italian painter, pastellist and printmaker. Throughout his career he was committed to a plein-air aesthetic and was particularly interested in rendering varying light effects, a concern that brought him into contact with the Impressionists. He was also acquainted with the members of the Macchiaioli, for whom his work was influential. In addition to oils, he experimented with printmaking and made innovative use of pastels. Practising a restrained, and therefore ‘acceptable’, form of Impressionism, he achieved great success in his lifetime, both nationally and internationally.
