Silenzio, in questo luogo si dorme...
Si può definire così il cimitero monumentale di Staglieno, una vera e propria metropoli dei defunti, il più grande e importante cimitero monumentale d’Europa, ma anche un vero e proprio museo a cielo aperto, una grandiosa galleria di arte scultorea che da sempre ha appassionato fotografi e turisti da tutto il mondo.

Giulio Monteverde Monument, Milano
The Monteverde Angel or Angel of the Resurrection is the name given to a marble statue of 1882 that guards the tomb of the Oneto family in the cemetery of Staglieno in Genoa, Northern Italy.It is one of the most famous works by the Neo-classical Italian sculptor Giulio Monteverde (1837-1917) and was commissioned by Francesco Oneto, a president of the Banca Generale, in honour of deceased members of his family.Portraying a pensive angel with long, richly detailed wings, it is acknowledged as one of the most beautiful and sensual sculptures in its genre, to which Monteverde contributed other important Neoclassical works.
The oil paintings seen on these pages are a characteristic sample of the work of the Irish artist Ken Hamilton. Born in Nigeria, West Africa, he returned to Ireland at the age of eleven where he eventually went to Art College in Belfast. Rejecting the trends of so-called contemporary art, he has sought to restore some of the ancient values of painting now discarded by so many.His paintings do not openly deal with the angst of the artist's own soul or with the 'human condition' but rather seem to be a celebration of the visual pleasures of the world in which we live. By pointing towards these pleasures he is also reminding us of their fleeting nature, not to create in us a sense of despair but so that we may savour the moment and enrich our lives by taking our time and drawing our attention to them.

Maggie Vandewalle was born and raised in Iowa City, Iowa. She received an art scholarship to the University of Iowa in 1981, where she worked towards a BFA in printmaking under Virginia Myers. After school she turned to painting, in part due to the cost of printmaking equipment, yet also to fulfill a desire for more immediate results. “I discovered that much as I loved working with copper and etching materials, the steps involved with creating a finished piece were taking a toll on my impatient nature”.
Is a pleasure to finally offer myself a window on the world and introduce some of my works. A few are recent, others are older, but all should give you a good odea of my progression through the years. You will find oil paintings, but also acrylic and pastel works. I even displayed commissioned portraits. My works, sometimes linked to romantic realism, new figuration or contemporary impressionism are mostly distinguised by a unique treatment of the light and a concern for the rendering detail, without stepping into hyperrealism. Settings with women, children, the sea, lakes… bucolic atmospheres, are all a clear part of my pictorial world.

The Ancient Persians modern Iran are more familiar to us than the other empire builders of Mesopotamia or the Ancient Near East, the Sumerians, the Babylonians, and the Assyrians, not only because the Persians were more recent, but because they were amply described by the Greeks. Just as one man, Alexander of Macedon Alexander the Great, ultimately wore the Persians down quickly in about three years), so the Persian Empire rose to power quickly under the leadership of Cyrus the Great.

I was born in Cartagena, Colombia in 1967. I started painting since I was 5 years old and at the age of 13 my passion for painting was clear. I was distinguished for my skills on painting photographic realism; at the time, the press used to call me a “child prodigy”. Today I have more than 30 years experience in fine arts. I studied art and history of arts in Bogotá, Madrid and New York, and after receiving several awards in Spain and continuing exhibiting, I was commissioned to make murals, cataloged as the best of my city.
In 1995 I founded the company “Diseño Interior” in Cartagena, Colombia, and became its design director. One year later and with over 70 employees, I started the manufacture of furniture and moldings, and created the brands "Espitia Art", "Espitia Furniture", and "Espitia Moldings". This gave me 15 years experience in leadership and personnel management. Moreover, I have always been passionate, immersed and seduced by the film world, and so, with the help of my 10 years experience and great management of the most advanced digital software, I am able to work on them with speed and efficiency.
Ukrainian painter Андрей Карташов was born in the city of Uzhgorod, the ancient capital of Transcarpathia, in western Ukraine. The picturesque slopes of the Carpathian mountains, the majestic open spaces, the mossy stones and ancient castles awakened in him a special feeling for the world around him, and that finally led him to the decision to devote his life to art. In 1995, Andrey graduated with honors from the College of Applied Arts of Uzhgorod. His senior project was recognized as the best end-of-study project of the year, and earned him the right to enroll, without entrance examinations, at the Lvov Academy of Arts. However, for Andrey, study at Lvov would not be sufficient; only the best academy for art, that in St. Petersburg, would satisfy his desire for the highest quality instruction possible. Once in St. Petersburg, no longer surrounded by the bright and enchanting natural beauty of Carpathia, Andrey was forced to learn a more difficult skill: to distinguish the various shades of St. Petersburg’s grey.

With unusually high praise from the modern master, George Braque, the young French artist Philippe Augé embarked on a painting career which, since the 1950’s has catapulted him into a meaningful position in the contemporary art arena. Braque’s assessment represents the quintessence of all the qualities associated with Augé’s work today.
Recognized primarily for his delicately balanced figures and lush still lifes, his paintings vibrate with a gamut of rich color which recalls instantly the panoply of Renaissance painting. At first glance, the subjects have a quiet quality – pulpy fruits, beautiful women clad in robes of luxurious fabrics, sensuous flowers, pastoral landscapes from region never seen by man – but a more serious study reveals something else; a Surrealistic note, subtly introduced by means of a minuscule figure looming in the background, a small animal half hidden by flowers, a simple gesture of one of his women.

Il pittore Italiano Antonio Nunziante afferma che tra Surrealismo e Metafisica "c’è una commistione. Mediamente la metafisica mi da più apertura, nel senso che è una realtà possibile e più vicina a noi. Il surrealismo invece è qualcosa di estremo, oltre una realtà. Raramente vado oltre la realtà delle cose, infatti nel contesto della mia espressione apparentemente tutto sembra ben proporzionato e normale, ma non è proprio così". Antonio Nunziante è nato nel 1956 a Napoli, ma è a Torino, dove la famiglia si era trasferita nel 1961, che trascorre l'adolescenza. Nel 1975, successivamente al conseguimento della maturità artistica ad Asti, s'iscrive all'Accademia di belle arti, che frequenta per due anni.
