Catalogue Note

In an artist's studio interior probably Campestrini's studio, bathed in a delicate light, a young woman reads, reclining on a chaise longue.

Raised in a family with liberal opinions, Alcide Davide Campestrini is an artist with a strong patriotic fiber, and the subject here depicted, a simple genre scene at first sight, is not as harmless as it may seem. Indeed, the title of the painting is written on an old label on the reverse of the work: "Lettura Patriottica". The young reader, dressed in a red shirt that inevitably evokes Garibalbi and the unification of Italy, is probably absorbed in a newspaper or a political pamphlet reflecting the liberal views of the painter.
