Pietro Scoppetta (Amalfi 1863-Napoli 1920) - "Parisian Characters"
Pencil, Watercolour and Ink - Hand signed - 1906

These drawings can refer to the French Period, when he lived between 1897 and 1903 in Paris, and to the following years, in Europe.
In Paris, he became part of the group of Neapolitan painters, attracted by the bourgeois suggestions of the Belle Epoque' and Italian philompressionist artists.
In the Parisian period, he changed subjects of his paintings and from previous representations of Landscape, he turned to Bourgeois Life's representation, where his fast, essential drawing lines evoked elements of optimistic tension towards the future, thus revealing his nature.
In these Parisian drawings, he portrayed:
a familiar scene in pencil and ink: - cm. 14,5 x 8,
a woman' portrait in pencil: - cm. 16 x 10
a man in ink: - cm. 13 x 7,5.
