About Achille Beltrame

Achille Beltrame was a painter and illustrator. His color plates for “La Domenica del Corriere,” the most popular Italian periodical, became the magazine’s hallmark. They cover the whole history of Italian customs and society of the first half of the 20th century, masterfully summarizing news, sports, and war.

Beltrame made them alive and current in the eyes of a population not yet completely out of illiteracy. He never moved from Milan, where he designed all his tables. Nevertheless, he managed to represent places, facts, people, and things he had never seen in person, thanks to his innate imagination and curiosity, combined with a rigorous sense of realism. The graphic composition of his works is still a reference.
From 1899 to 1945, he drew for the magazine 4662 front and back covers.
