Catalogue Note

Painter native from Ticino - he was born in Pura, which he often proudly recalls by adding the name of his hometown to his signature -, Adolfo Feragutti Visconti spends the majority of his career in Italy, practicing every genre of painting with a modern and sketchy style that makes him famous in the years 1880-1890, and  allows him to win the Prince Umberto Prize in 1891. Trained in Milan, he is close to the Scapigliatura movement, a literary and artistic pole of the Milanese modernity, and he is one of the first members of the famous association Famiglia Artistica.

The picture presented here shows three friends chatting together, however the rather informal dress of the girl on the right who hands a letter to a thoughtful young woman wearing black, gives the meaning of the scene some ambiguity and invites us to wonder about the object of their conversation.
