About

“It is not known when Foschi started to paint winter scenes but he favoured this genre more than any other throughout his life (Vinci-Corsini, 2002).”

 

“ Francesco Foschi had a prestigious career. His works were very much in vogue in the late eighteenth century and achieved high prices. Among the many collectors known to have cherished his winter scenes we find the Cardinal de Bernis, Ambassador of France in Rome, Sir William Hamilton, British Ambassador in Naples, the Count d’Orsay, the Marquis de Robien, Prince Camillo Borghese and Pauline Bonaparte (Vinci-Corsini, 2002).”
