Dughetti, Giancarlo - portrait of a young lady

This miniature portrait is signed "G Dughetti Firenze 12 1951". The sitter is not known.

The artist is Giancarlo Dughetti and he was an Italian who exhibited at various places in Italy and on a number of occasions after World War II.

He wrote a book about painting portraits and another about miniatures.


1954 - Miniatures on ivory of Giancarlo Dughetti (Florence)
1969 - Giancarlo Dughetti (Milan)
1972 - 1973 - Dughetti Giancarlo (Pisa - Montecatini - Vignola)
1975 - Giancarlo Dughetti (Mestre)
1981 - 1983 - Portraits of the twentieth century for the Uffizi (Florence)

His work has attracted quite high prices, with this miniature of a modern lady dressed in an earlier style, offered for sale on eBay for Euros 1200 in early 2012.

He appears to have painted on ivory and board, as well as on porcelain. 521

Much later - 2015 -  I have been contacted by a kind visitor who has provided some more information and has set up a website in tribute to Giancarlo Dughetti. She writes:

Sono la moglie del pittore Giancarlo Dughetti ( 1931 ---1986 ). Scrivo la presente per informare che ho fatto un blog con le opere di mio marito per tenere vivo il ricordo e far conoscere e divulgare la sua Arte " LA MINIATURA " a chi non ha mai visto una sua Mostra. Istruzioni : andare su Google , scrivere GIANCARLO DUGHETTI . BLOGSPOT.IT appare quadri e miniature .
Cordiali saluti Anna Dughetti

Which translates into English as:

I am the wife of the painter Giancarlo Dughetti (1931 --- 1986). I write this to inform you that I have a blog with the works of my husband to keep alive the memory and raise awareness and disseminate the His Art " MINIATURE " to those who have never seen a Show .
