About the Artist
Francesco Perotti (1907-1955), of Piacenza, Italy, was a well-known artist in his native country. In 1950 he was included in a religious art exhibition at the Vatican and after his death in 1955 the prize for best religious work in the Venice Biennale was named in his honor. Examples of his work are held in the permanent collection at the Achille Forti Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Verona, Italy.
