SARO CUCINOTTA (Italian / 1830-1871)

Saro Cucinotta was born in Messina, Sicily. He was a close friend of the poet and writer Vittorio Imbriani, who formulated his theory of the macchia (spot) as the essence of painting in a series of letters to Cucinotta. Together in 1865 Imbriani and Cucinotta founded and edited the influential journal L'Arte Moderna. Cucinotta was part of a school of etchers working in Naples, which included Gaetano Micale, Francesco di Bartelo, and Luigi Tramontano. Towards the end of his life Saro Cucinotta moved to Paris where his etchings were published by Cadart, and appeared in both L'Illustration Nouvelle and L'Artiste.
