    Faustini Modesto. Brescia, 27 maggio 1839 - Roma, 23 marzo 1891.
    Born in Brescia in 1839, Modesto Faustini was orphaned at the age of six and was moved into an orphanage where he received vocational training as a dressmaker. In 1855 his aptitude for design was recognized and he was allowed to enter the School of Drawing . In 1861 with a small stipend , the young artist enrolled in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, where he studied under the tutelage of Giuseppe Bertini. He worked at night making illustrations for magazines and newspapers in order to subsidize his stipende to continue his studies.
    After a move to Rome and his introduction at the artists Nino Costa, Faustini ‘s art began to demostrate the influence of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, culminating in the decorations for the Santuario delle S. Maria delle Grazie in his native Brescia. He was particulary noted for portraying scenes of Roman life and particulary that of the denizens of Pompeii which were so popular in the second half of the 19th century throughout Europe.
    The present painting, demostrate a remarkable sensititvity to color and light.
