Pictorialism, a fascinating expression of artistic photography, had its moment of maximum splendor between the late 1800s and the first two decades of the 1900s. Pictorial photographers shared a clear-cut aesthetic concept whose goal was to legitimize photography as an artistic expression, on a par with painting and drawing.

Italian Pictorialists competed as equals with virtuoso European and American photographers; they participated and gained renown at the various international Salons of artistic photography.
