Sill Life Oil on Canvas Board by Italian artist, Giuseppe Falchetti. Painting features an arrary of fish and other sealife.
Giuseppe Falchetti was an Italian still life and landscape painter, particularly known for his vivid depictions of wine and grapes. Born in Turin, Italy on June 18, 1843 to a modest artisan family, Falchetti joined Giuseppe Camino’s studio at the age of 12. Though originally trained in landscape painting at Camino’s studio, after numerous visits to the Sabauda Gallery of Turin, Falchetti began to take an interest in the genre of still life, and was further influenced by the study of Flemish painting. Falchetti was respected by the noble families of Turin and was often commissioned for his wide-horizon landscapes populated by minute figures, as well as his still life paintings featuring bottles of wine, fruit, small game, and grapes. His proficiency at depicting this last subject led him to be commissioned by the Italian government to paint representations of the national viticulture in 1876. Falchetti died on November 6, 1918 in Turin, Italy.
