Federico Zandomeneghi (1841 - 1917)

Federico Zandomeneghi was born in Venice, Italy on June 2nd, 1841 and died in Paris, France on December 31st, 1917. Zandomeneghi was an Italian Impressionist painter.

He was born in a family of artists; both his father and grandfather were sculptors. Zandomeneghi enrolled in the Venice Academy in 1856. Because of his political beliefs and support for Garibaldi, Zandomeneghi moved to Florence in 1860. There he was associated with the group of artists known as Macchiaioli, among who were Telemaco Signorini, Giovanni Fattori, and Giuseppe Abbati. Zandomeneghi joined them in painting landscapes outside the studio, “en plein air”, which was at that time an innovative approach.
