Luigi Brignoli attends the courses of the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo as a student of Cesare Tallone and Ponziano Loverini and, for two years, those of the Accademia di Brera in Milan.
In the meantime, he participated in numerous exhibitions, among others exhibited twice in 1907 and 1926 at the International Art Exhibition in Venice[1] he is appreciated for his landscapes of Lombard tradition and is highly esteemed as a portrait painter.
Already forty years old he is attracted to North Africa and, in 1922, he is with Giorgio Oprandi in Algeria, in Biskra, where he paints for many months. Then, in 1923, he moved to Tunisia, to return to his homeland in the same year and successfully exhibited his orientalist painting works performed in Africa at the Bergamo Circus.
As an orientalist painter Brignoli shuns from forms of exotic rhetoric, but relives the new environment with careful research of colors and the landscape.
In 1926, with Angiolo Alebardi, he exhibited at the Pesaro Gallery in Milan. In the same year he succeeded his teacher Loverini in the direction of the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo, a position he retained until 1945, when he will be replaced by Funi. In the same year he married Anita Taramelli, with whom he spent the rest of his days. Anita was his travel companion to Belgium, Holland, Sardinia and Africa[2]. Of May 1934 is the solo exhibition Tripolitania, promoted by the Circolo Artistico Bergamasco. In 1942 he held an exhibition at the Permanente in Milan with Cugusiini and Della Foglia.
