Painter of frescoes, landscapes, portraits, female figures, genre scenes, historical scenes and still lifes…….. [Wikipedia]

Andreotti’s paintings were sought after by American and European collectors a like and during the late 19th century he received an important commission from the King of Italy. While little is known about his exhibition history in Florence, he did show a number of paintings at the Royal Academy in London from 1879-1883; including: Her First Exhibit 1879; A Happy Father of Twins 1881; A Village Maestro 1882 and From the Wrong Cask 1883.
A number of his paintings were reproduced in important art reference books during the late 19th century. Below is the caption that accompanies one of them – A Shady Nook: How often it happens that the sentiments expressed in the page of some book bring two people to the realization of the existence of a bond of sympathy between them, which in time grows into love. It may be the mere trifle of a thought, but it is the spark which kindles the flame…...groups.google.com
