Carlo Follini originally studied mathematics and was employed at the same time in the military administration and an insurance company. During this time he began painting as a self-taught artist. From 1873 he attended the Accademia Albertina Turin, where he learned landscape painting from Antonio Fontanesi. Since the beginning of his studies he exhibited his works, which were painted from nature and attracted a lot of attention due to the influence of Fontanesi. Several awards and medals followed. Together with his brother, Follini went to Bologna in 1877, from where he made further trips to other Italian cities, such as Florence and Naples. In 1881 he moved back to Turin and continued his artistic education on his travels through Europe. His pictures address his travels and commit themselves more and more to reality. In 1892 he became an honorary member of the Turin Accademia Albertina. The work Venice also bears witness to his travels in the Italian cities. The typical houses of the lagoon city tower behind a large, single-masted sailing ship, the sails of which are spread across the hull. Other small boats and people on the bank frame the ship. The sky glows blue and is structured by white, transparent cloud formations. The water is impressive. The city and the boats are reflected on the waves with the greatest illusionistic mastery. Follini’s works were bought by the Italian royal family and are now in international private and public collections, such as the museums in Dresden, Lima, Rome and Turin.
