Federico del Campo (Peruvian, 1837-1927)

"Federico del Campo was one of the finest painters of Venetian views in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Born in Lima, Peru, Del Campo studied in Madrid with Lorenzo Valles (1830-1910), an artist who himself worked in Italy, dying in Rome in 1910. Del Campo exhibited a "View of Venice" in 1881 in Madrid and, since he had painted in Assisi several years before, it is clear that he had travelled extensively through Italy by this time. The main body of Del Campo's work, like that of his rival Rubens Santoro (b.1859), who also painted in Capri and Naples, consists of Veneitan views."
