Vittorio Reggianini was a famous Italian painter of elegant Rococo interior scenes featuring stylish young Parisians of pre-Revolutionary France. One of a number of Florentine painters of superbly executed bourgeois interior scenes like Frederic Soulacroix (1858- 1933), Federico Andreotti (1847-1930) and Arturo Ricci (1854-1919), Reggianini is considered perhaps the finest painter of fashionable young ladies of the Ancien Régime and of the sumptuous fabrics they wore.
