Previati was an Italian painter and writer. He was one of the leading exponents of Divisionism, particularly skilled at large-scale decorative schemes, and especially important for his writings on technique and theory.

His Via Crucis Stations of the Cross (for the Cemetery at Castano Primo ) are exhibited in the Diocesan Museum of Milan
