Street Scene in Naples
Oscar Ricciardi (Italian, 1864-1935)
Ricciardi began his studies under painter, Bernardo Celentano, and was also influenced by the "lively" style of Domenico Morelli. He initially painted similar "lively genre scenes" but later changed to painting landscapes and coastal seascapes, which were guaranteed to meet with more commercial success. He frequently exhibited in Naples and sold his works both nationally and internationally.
Ricciardi is listed in "Catalogo dell Arte Italiana dell Ottocento" by Giorgio Mondadori; and in "Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs" by Benezit.
