Lot Essay

Born into a large family of artists and decorators, Galliari was trained in the Brera Academy in Milan and became a successful designer of perspectives and quadrature for privates as well as for the royal theatres of Turin and Milan. Of painterly finish, the two gouaches from the Alsdorf collection are typical exampels of his stage sets.
