( Macerata 1876- Roma 1956 )
Aldo Severi was born in Macerata in 1876. He came from a wealthy family that guided him towards a career in law. He came to Rome to study and graduate in law, but at the same time devoted himself to painting, which was his true vocation.
Skilled in all genres, but particularly well versed in portraiture, he began to take part in Italian art exhibitions from the first decade of the 20th century, also achieving a fair amount of critical success. At the National Exhibition in Rimini in 1909, one of the first to host the artist, he presented Il viatico.
The expert and elegant drawing line is accompanied by a loose and fast colour scheme, rich in light effects. The touches of colour often veer into a fast and personal divisionism that led Aldo Severi to participate in the 1914 Roman Secession Exhibition, where he exhibited L’osteria della vera Felicetta. The following year he took part again with the view La piazza, reaching the peak of his success in the years leading up to the war.
He exhibited again after the war, at the Genoa Exhibition of 1921, with the painting Pavoncella Pulcherrima. During the 1920s and 1930s, his commitments at official Italian exhibitions diminished in favour of an activity that was decidedly more closely linked to private commissions.
He made several trips to Europe, also opening a small studio in Paris, where he devoted himself mainly to numerous portraits of politicians and diplomats, his main clients and collectors. Among Aldo Severi’s most important portraits are Pescatrice di sogni, Ritratto di Raffaele Fiorentino and Gentildonna. He died in Rome in 1956.
