Giuseppe de Nittis

1846-1884 Italy/Impressionism


Brief Biography-Giuseppe de Nittis from Barletta, Italy, studied at the Naples Institute of Fine Arts. His influences were the Macchiaioli group of artists who aspired to En plein air or outdoor painting. In Paris, he achieved considerable success through his association with many impressionist artists such as Edgar Degas. He helped promote the use of pastels, and his works impressed James McNeill Whistler. He received the Légion d’honneur before he died suddenly of a stroke when he was 38 years old.
