The walls of Settignano.

Telemaco Signorini (1835 – 1901) was an Italian artist who belonged to the group known as the Macchiaioli.  He painted this lovely, impressionistic painting of his daughter Fanny in 1885.

The walls running through Settignano look exactly the same today.  I love the everyday, slice-of-life aspect of this painting, which puts me immediately in Settignano, then or today.
