Francesco De Panis

Francesco de Panis (Genoa 1949) is a poetic and refined artist who, with his vivid and masterfully executed oils on panel, recounts the beauty of the Tuscan countryside.

Always faithful to the figurative, now back in vogue after years in which it seemed to have been forgotten, he takes us for a walk along paths protected by rows of cypresses, hills made blonde by expanses of wheat and splendid farmhouses that immediately make us think of lazy afternoons spent sipping Chianti and listening to the voice of nature.

His paintings manage to be extremely realistic - you really have the feeling of being in Tuscany and, at the same time, imbued with lyricism and impressionist magic.

Not for nothing, after the Academy of Fine Arts, he moved to Paris, reviving the splendid tradition of the "les italiens de Paris" those artists such as De Chirico, Massimo Campigli, De Pisis who, in the 1930s, left the Italy in search of fortune.

In Paris, Francesco De Panis meets PM Laurent, heir to the great French impressionist tradition. He worked with him for two years and was inevitably influenced by him.

Returning to Italy, he dedicated himself to the study of simultaneous contrasts and complementary colors, soon arriving at a technique capable of combining precision, fluidity, brightness, compositional balance and transparency.

Francesco De Panis has been the protagonist of prestigious solo exhibitions in Italy, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, the United States and Venezuela as well as the winner of authoritative awards.
