An all-Venetian star of the 19th centurySon of painter Guglielmo Ciardi, Beppe Ciardi (born in Venice in 1875) received his education not just from his maternal grandfather, Gian Francesco Locatelli, who painted classical-style portraits: when he was still a young boy, he started working with his father in the studio in San Barnaba, before learning how to paint the human form with Ettore Tito at the Accademia di Belle Arti. Success arrived when the artist was only nineteen years old, with sixty studies from nature at Milan's Castello Sforzesco, where he returned in 1906, together with his father and sister - as beautiful as she was talented - with eleven “Silenzi notturni e crepuscolari” [“Silences at the fall of night”] in the exhibition for the inauguration of the Simplon Tunnel. Through his friendship with Grubicy, the artist had experimented with Divisionist techniques and the Luminist style. His great popularity, however, which reached its zenith in 1912, when an entire room of the Venice Biennale was dedicated to forty-five of his paintings, is due to his contemplative depictions of the countryside, the sea and real life as he saw it. Ciardi died in Quinto di Treviso on 14 June 1932
