Biography

Courtesy of Caylus Anticuario S.A.

The artist was trained in Solimena’s studio and in 1749 he produced a series of sacred compositions for Santa Maria dell’Aiuto. This is the only documented public commission in his home town over these years. Like Giuseppe Bonito, Traversi also specialised at the time in the painting of genre scenes, aligning himself with painters from the preceding generation such as Fra Galgario and Cerutti, and placing himself within the context of other European painters, such as Hogarth, who use the pictorial medium as an instrument for the analysis of contemporary customs and mores, that is, for socio-moral criticism, recovering aspects of Baroque naturalism, to provide an “unofficial”, unconventional and bourgeois image of the surrounding world.
