Francesco Hayez Paintings

Francesco Hayez (1791–1881) was an Italian painter and important contributor to the Romanticism art movement within Milan. His uncle took note of his affinity towards drawing at a young age and set him up to apprentice with an art restorer in Venice. Hayez embraced his art training and eventually got to study under the renowned artist, Francesco Maggiotto. He continued his studies and went on to have a successful career and reputation as a painter. Hayez was known for exploring historical and political subjects, Romanticism, Neoclassism, the Nazarene movement, as well as generalized portraiture.
