We are pleased to offer a pair of watercolours depicting 19th century country workers by Filippo Indoni.
Filippo Indoni (1842 -1908) was an Italian artist who specialized in watercolour and painted in the Realist style. He is best know for his Romantic and idealized portraits of country workers around Rome. His work shows these people with dignity and pride, happy and colourful. The paintings of Indoni are regarded for their high quality; fine attention to detail and luminous use of colour.
The watercolours, of a man holding a stick and a woman with a basket, have great charm. Both subjects are happy and carefree, with smiles on their faces and colour in their dress. Each painted is signed by the artist to the lower right "F Indoni Roma 1880"
