Presenting atmospheric landscapes and urban views by an Italian painter whose oeuvre reflects a distinctive blending of romantic and naturalistic elements, this scholarly catalogue includes reproductions of some 65 paintings and 80 drawings and prints executed by Fontanesi from 1843 to 1881. Eleven essays discuss the artist's work in the context of developments in mid-19th-century European landscape painting, his association with the Macchiaioli group, the significance of his sojourns in Switzerland and Japan, his critical fortunes, and his status as a precursor of the Symbolists.
