Antonio Mancini

19th Century Italian Master

1852 - 1930

Antonio Mancini was born in 1852 in Rome. Antonio began his art education Domenico Morelli and Filippo Palizzi at the age of 12 at the Institute of Fine Arts in Naples.

In 1872, Mancini exhibited two paintings at the Paris Salon. In Paris, he met the Impressionist painters Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet. He also became friends with John Singer Sargent, who held a very high opinion about Mancini as a painter. Sargent introduced Mancini to wealthy English patrons who gave him portrait commissions.

Mancini painted in thick impasto, sometimes using bits of glass, metal foil, and other materials glittering materials to achieve light effects otherwise not obtainable by oil paint.

After suffering a mental illness, Antonio moved to Rome in 1883 where he spent 20 years and thereafter relocated to Frascati for 15 years. He died in Rome in 1930.
