Ettore Tito (1859-1941)
Tito trained at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice and later became a professor there, known for his landscapes and scenes of traditional life in the Veneto region, as well as producing several larger mythological murals notably for the Villa Berlinghieri in Rome and the Chiesa degli Scalzi in Venice. He associated with an expatriate artistic milieu that included John Singer Sargent and Isabella Stewart Gardner.
However, in the 1920s he also produced these pochoir prints of emancipated women for a French magazine which were considered rather risqué at the time!
