Egisto Paolo Fabbri
New York, New York, 1866-Firenze, 1933
Born to an Italian father and an American mother, he spent his youth in America in a family that had become prosperous. He studied painting with Julian Alden Weir and, after moving to Florence in 1885, with Michele Gordigiani. He lived in Paris from 1895 to 1913, frequenting Degas, Mary Cassatt, Sargent and Pissarro. He began to buy Cézanne's work in 1896 but was subsequently forced to sell it.
