- Curator's comments
- Conconi studied architecture in Milan at the Brera Academy and was a member of the Scapigliatura circle. He made his first etching as early as 1877 and went on to become a sculptor, painter and illustrator.
He printed all his own plates on a press lent to him by the Famiglia Artistica, the Milan exhibiting society with which he frequently showed. As many of his prints were devoted to female figures, this etching of the poet Giosuè Carducci is unusual. It was etched by Conconi for a competition organized by the Reale Calcografia of Rome to celebrate Carducci winning the Nobel Prize for literature in 1906, the first Italian to receive this award.
