Cesare Auguste Detti

Cesare Auguste Detti (Cesare Auguste Detti) (1847, Spoletto - 1914, Paris) - Italian historical painter.
His parents encouraged his interest in art. His father, although he was an engineer by education and professional activity, was engaged in painting as a lover and, perhaps, played an important role in the development of his son's creative abilities.

After graduating from the Academy in 1866, Detti traveled, absorbing new landscapes, new cities and new ideas.
In the late 1860s and early 1870s, he was most likely fascinated by the work of the engraver and illustrator Bartolomeo Pinelli, in particular a series of 50 engravings with costumes of the Kingdom of Naples. In his works, Pinelli showed national costumes in the smallest detail, so that an attentive viewer can fully appreciate the subtleties of clothing cut.
This type of painting was inspired in part by the Rococo style of the eighteenth century, and in part by the realism movement of the 1850s and 1860s. In addition, the pictures were made attractive by the sense of humor with which many subjects were written.
In the 1880s, Detti's career developed further. He was assigned to illustrate two novels by Walter Scott. It is not surprising that it was he who was approached with these orders, because his skill in depicting details of costumes from historical eras was widely known and was the best fit for illustrating these romantic English works.
