Press release for the 1963 New York, Museum of Modern Art exhibition, p. 2: "In the next year, 1884, at the age of 26, Rosso first went to Paris. Following his return to Italy a few months later his mother, to whom he was very close, died. He then embarked on a brief unhappy marriage, but in 1889 deserting his wife and son, he returned to Paris which remained his home during the rest of his creative years, so that essentially he is a Parisian artist."
