Federico Andreotti

Federico Andreotti was a prolific painter of realistic genre and aristocratic scenes originating in the 16th and 17th centuries.  Andreotti initially studied at the Academy in Florence and afterwards studied under Enrico Pollastini (1817-1876). Popular among American and European collectors in the late 19th century, the King of Italy also commissioned a painting by him.  His paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy in London from 1879-1883.  Andreotti combined his knowledge of anatomy with the new theories of color and technique of the period.  His figures are often large, but remain true to anatomical specifications.  In his painting, The Favorite (below), he captures the well used theme of woman and cat.
