This painting also dates to 1884. Here Azzurrino is viewed frontally. This work is a perfect example of Italian painting in the nineteenth century, which displays a sensitive quality though not as marked as in Impressionist works. The play of colour creates the classical contrast between light and dark, without reaching the luminosity characteristic of French painting, and always achieving an accurate and realistic effect.
