Macchiaioli Art | History and Sitemap

The Macchiaioli were a group of Italian painters🎨 active in Tuscany in the second half of the nineteenth century, who, breaking with the antiquated conventions taught by the Italian academies of art, did much of their painting outdoors🎨 in order to capture natural light, shade and color.
This practice relates the Macchiaioli to the French Impressionists🎨 who came to prominence a few years later, although the Macchiaioli pursued somewhat different purposes.
