Alceste Campriani (1848-1933) Genre painter


Alceste Campriani was an Italian painter🎨 noted for his landscapes, especially of the Neapolitan countryside.
He was born in Terni from a noble family. His father's political attachment to the cause of Italy prompted his arrest by Papal officers.
This led to economic difficulties for the Campriani family. He was enrolled in the Naples Institute of Fine arts, but he proved recalcitrant to academic discipline, and abandoned the institute to paint on his own.
