“Nervi” oil on canvas by Cesare Bentivoglio 1920s/’30s.
The work is signed at lower right.
Cesare Bentivoglio (Genoa, 1868 – Genoa, 1952) was a self-taught Italian painter.
His favourite subjects were seascapes, landscapes, port views, hunting scenes and the Dolomites.
He always refused to participate in the Genoa Promotrici and, in general, to exhibit at any art exhibition.
His paintings, bought by foreign art dealers, reached France and England.
From an initial painting still linked to Ligurian Vedutists, he moved on to a much more lively use of colour, in the wake of post-impressionism.
