Profile & Artwork

Domenico Induno was an Italian painter, primarily of genre and historical scenes.

He was born and died in Milan, and studied in the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan under Luigi Sabatelli, and alongside Cherubino Cornienti, Giuseppe Mongeri, and Mauro Conconi. He later moved to Rome.

He tried successively the Neoclassicism and Romantic schools, but afterwards settled down to depict popular life at Milan. In 1848 he took part with the Revolution, and had in consequence to flee to Switzerland. Thence he passed to Tuscany, and did not return home until 1859.
