Our friend Mattia Jona at La Portantina di Mattia Jona, Milan, Italy has listed his latest acquisitions and this beautiful study really impressed me. It is a brush and ink study of Bacchus by Raffaello Resio (1854-1927). According to the description "Resio studied in Genoa, at the Accademia Ligustica, and made his debut in the late 1870's with paintings of military subjects. There followed a period of study and work in Rome, where he participated (1880-1887) in the exhibitions of the 'Società degli Amatori e Cultori', with Roman landscapes, Ligurian and Neapolitan views, genre scenes and paintings of historical subject. In Liguria he was also very active as a fresco painter of churches." (Illustration and biography courtesy La Portantina di Mattie Jona, Milan, Italy)
