The best way to paint him came from that love. Achille Tominetti set about "pulling down" the various aspects that that landscape presented to him. Barren pastures, groups of sheep grazing by white birch trees, mountain backgrounds, the last lights of the sunset, groups of houses in his Miazzina began to enter his canvases, to repeat themselves ».
