abstract

The proximity between Giuseppe De Nittis and some French Impressionism’s interpreters has always been one of the most debated and controversial aspects of the Apulian painter’s experience. Specifically, the connection between him and Claude Monet, even if certified, is still not enough discussed and investigated. A letter sent by the French master to his Italian colleague, kept in Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles, offers new points of view and reflection on affinities, more or less tangible, of their languages and their methods of nature study and translation.
