19th Century Paintings in Prato

The Museum owns also various artworks by Antonio Marini (1788-1861), the original exponent of Tuscan Purism, who painted sacred subjects in the early Renaissance style, for example the Madonna of the kiss, in the style of Perugino. His wife Giulia Marini was also appreciated for her fine paintings of landscapes and still lives, such as Flowers in a vase. Adolf von Stürler (1802-1881), a pupil of Ingres and intimate friend of Bartolini and the Marini family, portrayed her in the striking Portrait in three poses. Another fine work by this Swiss artist is displayed in the Museum: Renato d’Angiò with Isabella di Lorena, a statement of the neo-Gothic trend of that time. Finally, there are self-portraits: the first by Luigi Mussini (1813-1888), who was the master of Alessandro Franchi; the second by Alessandro Ferrarini (1815-1904), and the final one by the Pratese Giuseppe Ciardi (1788-1855) with his wife and children.
