BERTEA ErnestoPinerolo (Turin), 1836 - Turin, 1904
Painter and etcher. Law graduate, he dedicated his life to landscape painting. After a stay in Geneva (1858), where he studied under G. Castan, and time in Paris (1859) under C. Troyon, in 1860 he became friends with D'Andrade and part of the Rivara school. His style was inspired by French naturalism and his connections with the Macchiaioli painters, and his works bear the echoes of numerous journeys in Europe.
