Federico Andreotti | Italian Figurative Painter

Federico Andreotti was an Italian Painter and was born in Florence. His academic studies prepared him well for his chosen subject matter, all his figurative works set in the 16th and 17th centuries. His paintings were very sought after by American and European collectors alike and during the late 19th century he received an important commission from the King of Italy. While little is known about his exhibition history in Florence, he did show a number of paintings at the Royal Academy in London from 1879-1883; including: Her First Exhibit 1879; A Happy Father of Twins 1881; A Village Maestro 1882 and From the Wrong Cask 1883.
