The story

Antonio Mancini was educated at the ‘Istituto di Belle Arti di Napoli’, where he got admitted when he was twelve years old. He made figures (nudes, portraits), genres, landscapes, religious work and beach scenes with impressionist influences. From 1865-1882, Mancini worked in Napoli. From 1872, when he first took part in the Parisian Salon, he was a well-known artist in Paris. He met the impressionists Degas and Manet, whom influenced his work. In his later work he used a colourful and clear palette, often using the impasto-techniques. He concluded a contract with Galerie Goupil to supply him with artworks. In 1882 Mancini, tortured with mental and physical illnesses, moved to Rome. He got in touch with The Hague painter H.W. Mesdag, who in 1885 decided to subsidy him for decades: it led to multiple purchases and the organization of many expositions in the United States and Europe. Mancini travelled to Germany, The Netherlands and England (on invitation of his friend John Singer Sargent), where he portrayed high-class figures.
