PRESENTING a STUNNING piece of ORIGINAL and HIGHLY DESIRABLE FINE ART, namely a Remo Mario Trentini Reverse Oil on Glass of a Parisiene Picnic and Riverside Scene.
This painting was created sometime between 1965 and 1980.
It was authenticated and appraised in 2006 by Brian Roughton of Roughton Galleries in Dallas, TX.
Remo Mario Trentini (1915 – 1999) was a Dallas Surrealist Artist originally born in Innsbruck, Austria. He was raised in Roverato, a City in the Trento region of Northern Italy, nestled in the rugged Dolomite Mountains – a place he recalled often as a subject of his paintings.
After attending the Art Academy in Turin for 5 years, he moved to Paris to study after WW2. He returned to Italy in the mid-1950’s where he and his family lived in Rome. In 1976, Trentini moved his family to Onawa, Ontario, then in 1980 when his son Silvio (who served as his translator) entered SMU, moved to the US.
Trentini worked from his home in Dallas, painting 7 or 8 hours a day on works in two markedly different styles. He made broadly impressionistic oil paintings on glass of places he knew during his lifetime (of which this painting is one … of his time spent in Paris). He also painted detailed fantasy scenes in oil on canvas.
Trentini’s works are in Private Collections in Dallas, Toyko, New York City, the Vatican and Rome, as wells as Ottawa, Canada, and the Collection of the British Royal Family.
His works have been exhibited in Dallas and other major Cities.
A term used to describe works created by contemporary artists that share similar aesthetic qualities with those by the French Impressionists. Whether depicting urban environments or the natural world, all of the images that can be considered Contemporary Impressionist are rendered with loose, expressive brushwork and focus on the effects of light. Like many of the Impressionists, Nancy Friese painted her watercolor Walk to the Sea (2012) outdoors, or en plein air, in order to better capture the effects of changing light and weather on the landscape. With its emphasis on the effects of fading daylight and the illumination from the stores and streetlights, the downtown Boston marketplace in John Terelak’s painting, Faneuil Hall, could easily be mistaken for 1880s Paris.
