Giovanni Segantini

Segantini, Giovanni (jōvänˈnē sāgäntēˈnē) [key], 1858–99, Italian painter, b. in the Tyrol. A herder in his youth, he is known for his portrayal of Alpine peasant scenes. Although his early work is neoimpressionist in its love of nature, he made more symbolic paintings in the last years of his life. Well known among his works are The Punishment of Luxury (Liverpool) and At the Watering Place (Basel). The Segantini Museum is in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
