Stepping outside the artist's studio: the origin of plein air painting in Italy, from Thomas Jones to Corot - with Anna Ottani Cavina

At the end of XVI Century, a painting revolution began: a large number of painters left their ateliers and began painting outdoors to capture the true essence of landscapes. The Italian countryside, with its vibrant colours and lights, was the preferred location of notable French, German, British and Scandinavian artists, who ended up ‘revealing’ and ‘reinventing’ the beauty of Italian landscapes through their art.

Named to the “Légion d’honneur” of the French Republic in 2001, Anna Ottani Cavina is also Director of the Fondazione Federico Zeri, Professor of Art History of the Department of Visual Arts, University of Bologna, and Adjunct Professor of Italian Art History, Johns Hopkins University SAIS Bologna Center, and was director of the exhibition Paysages d'Italie. Les peintres du plein air (at the Grand Palais in Paris, 2001). In 1999 she was the speaker for the Italian Academy Lecture Series; her lectures were then published as Geometries of Silence.
