Francesco Paolo Michetti, 1851-1929

Michetti was amongst a small group of artists who brought a luminous light and progressive painterly approach to his Neopolitan paintings. After a lukewarm reception to his work during 1900's World Exposition, he gave up his studio and became a recluse. These self portraits have a bravura that belies any insecurities Michetti might have had.
