ART: Florentine Painter Federico Andreotti

Federico Andreotti  was born in 
Florence, Italy on March 8, 1847. 
His early studies in the arts were 
with Angiolo Tricca and Stefano 
Ussi at the Florentine Academy 
of the Fine Arts.

He i
s known as a prolific painter in 
the realistic genre, but he is 
famous for his aristocratic scenes.

He gained an appointment as a professor at the Academy at 

a young age. He painted many canvases in Florence, Rome, 
and other big Italian cities. 

He combined his artistic talent with his knowledge of the 

human anatomy. 

His paintings depicted the 
gentries aristocracy in their 
finest dress. The elaborate period dress and the sophisticated airs of his 
subjects gave his paintings a 
special air, sometimes described 
as Rococo Revival.

He is praised for his dramatic 

use of color in his paintings.

Federico died in 1930 in Florence. His work is widely sought after in auction houses in Europe.
