ALESSANDRO MILESI (1856-1945)

Alessandro Milesi was a noted Venetian portrait, landscape, and genre artist. At the age of thirteen, Milesi became a pupil of the renowned Italian artist and professor Napoleone Nani at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts from 1869 to 1874. Milesi presented at the national exhibitions held in Milan (1881) and Venice (1887) and established his reputation as a painter of everyday Venetian life. Milesi won the gold medal at the Boston International Exhibition of 1890. He took part in the Milan Triennale and in all the editions of the Venice Biennale from 1895 to 1935, with a solo show in 1912 and an anthological exhibition in 1935. He achieved success with portraits of the Venetian middle class at the beginning of the new century and continued to paint writers, musicians and actors, along with his genre and landscape interest. This iconic impressionist oil on board by Milesi, signed lower right, showcases his bold and energetic palette. The painting measures 17 1/2″x21 1/2″, in a 24″x28″ period ornate gilt frame. Numerous works by the artist have been sold at auction, including ‘Scaricatore di sale, 1909′ sold at Christie’s Rome ‘ARTE DEL XIX SECOLO’ in 2005 for $26,505. International auction prices have reached 160,000 US. There have been several articles published about Alessandro Milesi, including ‘Correr Museum Examines Giacomo Favretto’s Short but Intense Career’ written for ArtDaily in 2010. Milesi is viewed as carrying on the Venetian art tradition of Giacomo Favretto, who died in 1887.
