The Fourth Estate by Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo
An icon of the social and political struggle of the working class, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo began working on the subject of The Fourth Estate in 1895, but it took him six years to complete the painting. To learn more about this masterpiece, read the post I dedicated to The Fourth Estate.

The Fontana Hall was designed to become itself a work of art.
