Alberto Salvati

Alberto Salvati was an Italian painter, sculptor and draughtsman who made a significant contribution to the Neoclassical movement of the 19th century. He was born in 1778 to a family of modest means, but despite his lack of wealth, Salvati managed to receive a formal education in the arts, studying painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. His most iconic works include a large fresco in the Church of San Gennaro in Naples and The Departure of the Argonauts in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. Salvati was a master of perspective and composition and his most highly regarded paintings are characterized by a succinct, sober and almost photographic vision. Throughout his career, Salvati was a highly respected figure in the Italian art world, winning numerous awards and commissions before his death in 1851.
