  • The New Baby

    by Giovanni Battista Torriglia

    Torriglia’s work is renowned for the superb depiction of interior scenes featuring Italian peasant families. He studied in Florence, where he developed his particular skill of capturing the vibrancy of everyday Italian life. The intricate detail and vivid personalities evident in his figures makes Torriglia stand out from other 19th Century genre painters.   The cosy effect of his interiors contrasts with the glimpses of outer life which we are afforded and his animals and children particularly are portrayed with affectionate knowledge. The figures have a superb feeling of realism and their natural and believable poses underline Torriglia’s firm placing in art history. DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 43.0 x 28.5 in./ 109.2 x 72.4 cm SIGNATURE: Signed lower right MEDIUM: Oil on canvas
