Tranquillo Cremona (1837-1878)
Tranquillo Cremona was born in Pavia. He studied in Venice with Giovanni Carnovali and then moved to Milan. Here he became a member of the young Milanese Scapigliatura movement of writers and artists, their criticism was directed against the positivist sciences. Tranquillo Cremona mainly painted figurative motifs and in particular women's portraits. His style is characterized by a free, airy painting style. Cremona died at the age of 41 years, probably as the result of poisoning by color pigments.
