Spring: Francesco Michetti

Artist Julia Watson recommends Francesco Michetti (Italian, 1851- 1929) for our March theme of spring:


Springtime and Love oil on canvas 37 1/2" x 72 3/4" 1878

Julia says: 
"Springtime and Love" by Francesco Michetti belongs to the Art Institute of Chicago, although I understand it isn't always on display. I've never seen it in person, but I heard about it in Scott Burdick's YouTube video series called "The Banishment of Beauty." He talks about this painting in part 3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMA1rn7q7t0&list=PL619ED61282CD714E.  
Thank you Julia!

  1. Thank you for the link to Scott Burdick's "The Banishment of Beauty." I was at the Frye Museum yesterday to see the Nicaloi Fechin Show and wondering why they don't ever have shows about present day artist. Now I know why. Thanks again
