Felice Casorati was an Italian
painter and sculptor. Early influences on his work included Gustav Klimt and Symbolist art. He also admired the early
Renaissance Masters, especially Piero della Francesca. He
often worked in tempera. In the 1920s his style shifted to
more flattened and unusual perspectives with a restricted
palette, and his paintings during this decade have sometimes
be connected to the Metaphysical School.
