Giuseppe Faraone, 1954 | Impressionist Cityscape painter



Il pittore Italiano Giuseppe Faraone, originario della provincia di Potenza, abita ed opera da molti anni a San Donato Milanese e conosce la pittura a 360 gradi, avendo perfezionato il suo percorso artistico in Italia e all'estero. Dopo gli studi accademici ha iniziato il percorso di verifica della pittura impressionista, dipingendo negli stessi luoghi in cui l’Impressionismo francese è nato e arricchendo il suo bagaglio di informazioni che vanno al di là dei dettami della poetica impressionista; in particolare ha potuto verificare l’incidenza del luogo in cui nasce un quadro e la misura in cui il pittore ne resta influenzato, spesso fuori dalla sua consapevole scelta.

Francesco Di Marino | Impressionist Street Scene painter


Francesco Di Marino (Napoli, 1892-1954), è stato un pittore Italiano di scene di genere, di vedute animate e di paesaggi costieri. 

Allievo di Cammarano e poi di Dalbono, Francesco Di Marino seguì fedelmente la tradizione del buon dipingere all’aria aperta, nella scia della concezione paesistica instaurata a Napoli dalla Scuola di Posillipo.  Così operando venne ad affiancarsi, oltre che ai suoi diretti maestri, a Casciaro, a Pratella, a Scoppetta, e poi a Galante, a De Corsi, a Villani, a Viti, affinando gradualmente i propri mezzi espressivi e giungendo a caratterizzare il suo lavoro per l’immediatezza della percezione, la genuinità del sentimento, la sicurezza esecutiva. Di Marino riusciva a trasferire sulla tela gli aspetti fugaci della natura e del paesaggio con una freschezza di sensazione e con un tocco morbido eppur corposo, che non fu di molti pittori.

Gino Piccioni (Foligno 1873 - Biella 1941)


Gino Piccioni [Foligno (Perugia) 1873 - Biella (Vercelli) 1941] è stato un pittore e scultore Italiano.

Poco nota l’attività di questo pittore che, dopo avere ricevuto la propria formazione a Roma, sotto la guida di A. Vertunni e R. Franzi, soggiornò a lungo in Germania. Dai cataloghi delle esposizioni si desume che dovette concentrare la sua produzione nell'arco di un quindicennio (1899-1912), misurandosi per lo più con temi di paesaggio, non estranei a toni di compiaciuto sentimentalismo.
