Anacleto Margotti

Since a very young age he expressed his passion for colours and paintbrushes, even though he favoured humble handicrafts.

 

This strange beginning , along with his family origins – his parents were farmers – are the elements where his main themes can be traced back to – subjects related to the simple tasks of working the fields. Throughout his works the painter praises the sacrifices made by the farmers, the difficulties and hardships they had to face and the dignity and simplicity with which they faced life and how the beauty of nature was their reward.
