Costantini began his studies in Venice where he was exposed to the works of Paul Besnard, J.S. Sargent and Lucien Simon. Under the influence of these artists he would later inherit their fluid brush work and dynamic palette. Costantini moved to Paris in 1906, marking the most successful period of Costantini’s career. After the success of Le Cerisier, which drew international praise, he was made a member of the Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts. The artist had become interested in the freshness and transparent effects of watercolours and this sensitivity to tone and shading is translated to his oils, the layers of paint, some muted and pale, others more vibrant applied to achieve a certain tonal effect.
