Luigi Renault was a talented and very productive artist, active in Leghorn 1858-1880, later being appointed marine artist to King Victor Emanuel of Italy. He started early in his life to paint ships and was apparently trained by his father Michele Renault (fl. 1840-68), who was a ship portrait artist as well.
