"Based on numerous important paintings and drawings, this extensive publication presents the life and work of Giovanni Segantini (1858-1899), the enthusiastic Divisionist and Symbolist whose work was inspired by light. His desire to translate the bright, clear light he experienced in the alpine world led to an enormous painterly development, one that is evident in all of his creative phases--starting with his time in Brianza, Lombardy, the pictures of farm life in Savognin, and finally, to the apex of his career, characterized by the brightly lit mountain landscapes of the Engadin Valley. Scholarly and literary essays acknowledge the important role Segantini played in reviving landscape painting and paving the way for modernism, and assign him a new place in the history of world art as a painter of light."--Publisher's website

"The artist Giovanni Segantini was a leading member of the European avant-garde of his day. He was hailed as an 'innovator', a 'prophet' and a 'revolutionary': in an obituary one critic called him a "Secession in his own right". His work was to be seen in public and private collections alike, and had a major effect on art in Europe at the time. Even the Futurists cited him as a role-model." "This is the first ever Segantini monograph in English. It offers the public an opportunity to see important paintings and drawings by this artist, including his famous triptych La vita - La natura - La morte (Live - Nature - Death). With in-depth essays on the artist's oeuvre - from his early genre paintings, influenced by Realism, right up to his symbolic depictions of Nature in a Divisionist style - this publication is an up-to-date, comprehensive monograph on Giovanni Segantini."--Jacket

A small-town marriage by Colombi( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in Italian and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A young woman trapped in a provincial town dreams of being rescued by love. But the Marchesa Colombi puts a twist on that old plot in her story of Denza Dellara, a clumsy Cinderella too big for her hand-me-downs and saddled with a family that seems to go to great lengths to frustrate her hopes -- and to make her see reality. To escape everyday boredom, Denza conceives a love for the most unlikely of Prince Charmings, the gargantuan Onorato, a rich local who quotes opera to her but cannot possibly marry a girl without a dowry. Denza carries on a romantic vigil for her "elephant" while lamenting her many woes, until she catches the attention of a prosperous farmer. This Frog Prince has an enormous wart on his forehead, but he can end her daydreaming and save her from impending spinsterhood ... if she lets him. Paula Spurlin Paige's engaging translation at last introduces this masterpiece of modern Italian literature to an English-speaking audience
