The show

Artist, anthropologist, explorer, adventurer, writer, photographer, journalist and inventor: Arnold Henry Savage Landor (1865-1924) is an extremely interesting multifaceted figure, who has enjoyed great success in life and who, for reasons that are not entirely clear, she totally fell into oblivion after her death.

 

Savage Landor was born in Florence to an English father and an Italian mother. He lived his adolescence in a cultured environment, where literature and art were daily passions. Among his teachers was Stefano Ussi (1822-1901), who sensed the young man's skills and suggested to the family to let him devote himself to painting.

Leaving early to discover the world, young Henry first visited some countries in North Africa and America, then moved to Asia: Japan, Korea, China, where he painted hundreds of works in real life in an 'impressionistic style - quick executioner.

The documentary uniqueness of his creations is evident: in a period in which we already relied on the immediacy of photography, Savage Landor persisted for a long time in painting en-plein-air, however clearly distancing himself from imaginative visions and style meticulously classic of Orientalist genre painting to immerse yourself in the real Asian world, restoring its various aspects with the expressive features of modernity.
