ALESSANDRO MORANI (1859-1941) - Disegno di un Ragazzo nudo Seduto - Seated Nude boy

 I almost forgot to list this small drawing of a seated nude youth that I bought several weeks ago by the listed Italian artist Alessandro Moroni (1859-1941). Morani was an Italian painter, book illustrator, and set designer who was active during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Although a specialist in landscapes he did not let his talents go to waste and often submitted magazine and book illustrations. He taught art at the Industrial Art Museum of Rome from 1882 to 1902. His illustrations and interior designs were influenced by the English Artists William Morris and Charles Blanchard. He collaborated in the founding of the magazine “L’Italia dell’arte Industriale’” even designing covers and posters for the magazine. Enjoy.

Here are a few of his other works in private collections and museums....
