Illustratori di un'epoca: I Matania

A young beauty learning the harpsichord. Fortunino Matania (Italian, 1881-1963). Oil on canvas. After WW I, Matania switched to scenes of ancient high life for the British woman’s magazine, Britannia and Eve. He filled his London studio with reproductions of Roman furniture, pored over history books for suitably lively subjects. Then, with the help of models and statues, he began to paint such subjects as Samson & Delilah.
