Eugenio Zampighi was born in Modena, Italy on 17th October 1859. He showed a keen interest in art when he was very young and at the age of thirteen he attended the Academy of Design. Zampighi completed the course winning six first class medals in the examinations.

At the age of twenty, Zampighi won a scholarship and spent three years in Rome. He was very successful in the yearly examinations and he was invited to become an Honourable Member of the Modena Academy. He spent the last year of his scholarship in Florence and he decided to settle there in 1884. It was here that Zampighi began to paint his well known genre subjects. These were readily sold and he received many commissions from local dealers and from abroad.

Taking inspiration from a poem buy Leopardi, Zampighi executed a large painting that was exhibited in the hall of the Modena Academy. It was a great success and the Council of the Academy conferred upon him the degree of Professor.

Zampighi then devoted himself to figure painting, depicting scenes of the domestic life of his countrymen. These paintings are very pleasing compositions with lively colouring and are his best known works. They are highly sought after today by collectors in Italy and abroad and they were equally popular during the artist’s own lifetime. Zampighi died in Maranello in 1944.
