Achille Leonardi (ca. 1800–1870) was a 19th-century Italian artist. Leonardi painted with oil on canvas.

Works[edit]

A representative sample of Leonardi's works include:

  • Linda di Chamonnid (Chamonix) (100 x 75 cm)
  • A child's bed time (98 x 74 cm)
  • Hurrying Home (46 x 38 cm)
  • Guido Reni painting the Portrait of Beatrice Cenci in prison
  • Madonna and Child (85 x 101.5 cm)
  • Young Girl in Cloister - (99.1 x 71.1 cm)
  • La Condamnée à Mort

A number of Leonardi's works were reproduced in different sizes. For example, 'Linda di Chamonnid' can also be seen at the Sheraton Towers Hotel in Buenos Aires sized about 150% larger than the one listed above, which is now in a private collection in New Zealand. Similarly, there are at least two versions of 'Portrait of Beatrice' and 'Hurrying Home' in different sizes.
