Lot Essay

Eugenio Zampighi devoted his career to painting domestic life, centring on the figures he saw around him and usually depicted in jovial company. In the present work the artist has captured an intimate moment in a conversation of two clergymen, who are sharing some news with a hint of gossip. The eye-level viewpoint of the picture is very inviting and one feels one is almost sitting at the table with the figures. A highly successful artist during his own lifetime, Zampighi studied in the academies of Rome and Florence, where he eventually settled in 1884.
His paintings can be found in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art of Modena in Italy and are highly sought after today by collectors in Italy and abroad.
