Gaetano Antoniazzi

(c. 1823 - 1897)
ANTONIAZZI, Gaetano Born 1825 Cremona, died 1897 Milan Italy. Presumed to be a pupil of Enrico Ceruti. From c.1855 he lived in Mantua, probably assisting the aged Giuseppe Ceruti. Following Ceruti’s death in 1860, he returned to Cremona where he remained until 1870 (apart from a year spent in Genoa in 1865) when he moved finally to Milan. Assisted Leandro Bisiach during his last decade. Stylistically he owes much to Enrico Ceruti, and his workmanship is generally very refined, although sometimes undermined by poor materials. His work is not signed until the Milan period from 1870. Manuscript label: Gaetano Antoniazzi / Fece Milano 1885 [Blot II]
