Giovanni Battista Filosa
La cueillette des fleurs des bois

1874

About

Giovanni Filosa’s impressionistic watercolor study of Italian women in picturesque native costume gathering spring flowers is an exceptional example of the artist’s finely developed and sensitive watercolor technique. Filosa’s mastery of the watercolor medium is clearly demonstrated in his treatment of the verdant landscape. The lush foliage is rendered with a high degree of realism and detail. His skill in rendering the subtle gradations in tonality that one finds in nature, and his sophisticated use of complementary color would seem to indicate that Filosa was aware of the science of color theory which placed its emphasis on optical rather than objective reality. In his desire to paint nature as it actually appears to the eye, Filosa may be counted among the foremost Italian Impressionistic painters. Filosa’s work also testifies to the great importance of academic training and the numerous academies, in his case Naples, which were established in the major regional cities of Italy and which formed the backbone of the artistic production of Italian Ottocento (nineteenth century) art.
