Rosati, Giulio

Giulio Rosati studied drawing and painting in Rome at the Accademia di San Luca starting in 1875 when he was seventeen years old under the Academic teachers Querci Dario, Francesco Podesti, and the Spanish painter Louis Alvarez Catala.

Orientalism, soon became his favorite theme for his paintings, especially the places and characters from the Maghreb region of Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. His paintings were very colorful and the characters looked as if they were coming from a story of adventure.

However, Giulio Rosati himself never set foot anywhere near the places he painted, never leaving Italy. This was a time of greater accessibility to the Middle East and North Africa, he was able to create his oil paintings using photographs, engravings, Oriental carpets, clothes, and objects brought back by travelers to the region. Orientalism paintings became increasingly popular among American and British collectors toward the end of the nineteenth century as souvenirs of their exotic travels. Rosati rarely participated in formal exhibitions, preferring to sell his artworks through art dealers.

Giulio Rosati was one of the most prolific Orientalists artists in Italy between the nineteenth and twentieth century. His son, Alberto Rosati, also became an Orientalist painter.
