Product description:Portrait of my wife Angela. This portrait is painted in the "I Macchiaioli" or "verismo" style. Note that the "macchia" or initial sketch is showing through as if the work were incomplete. This is a deliberate plan to show the process and concept of macchia (stain or spot) based painting that was the main innovation of the Tuscan School of painting during the Risorgimento. Here Angela is shown in bright sunlight which gives rise to a stronger than normal chiaroscuro to create maximum impact or "effect."
