Artist biography (source: Askart; the Fondazione Carlplo): Pietro Fragiacomo is known for his seascapes and cityscapes of Venice, often depicted at night. He lived most of his life in Venice, where he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, and in 1887, first exhibited at the Esposizione di Venezia. In 1889, he won a bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition of 1889 in Paris. He also exhibited and won prizes at the Munich International Exhibition. He won the Prinze Umberto prize at the Milan Triennale of 1891 and was a regular participant from 1895-1922 at the Venice Biennale, which displayed a solo show of his work in 1910 and a posthumous retrospective in 1924.
