Our Gallery

The Comellis are a prestigious family of gallery owners who have been operating in the art market since 1950. For almost 60 years, their passion has been passed down from generation to generation, from father to son. In 2018, Daniele Comelli understood the potential of e-commerce and decided to open his own online art gallery, breaking away from the family business. The success is sensational. The entrepreneur, born in 1985, began to be noticed and cited in famous newspapers and important sector magazines, for example: La Repubblica, Corriere della Sera, New York Times, Forbes, Vogue.

Who is Daniele Comelli?

I was born in 1985, in a house full of works of art. My grandfather was a gallery owner and so was my father. The first colors I saw, those of the great painters: Genoese, Italian, international.

I could barely walk and talk but, they say, I knew how to recognize them all. Styles, signatures, techniques: certain things are learned quickly, if you grow up with them. They also say that I didn't need a tape measure to determine the dimensions of a canvas: it was enough for me to measure with my eyes, squeezing them a little. I always knew that art would be my life and that I too would become a gallery owner, but I wanted to do it in my own way. After finishing my studies, I went to work in my father's gallery, founded by his in 1967. It dealt only classical art: masters of the caliber of De Pisis, Michetti, Scanavino, Silvestro Lega, Gamberini and many other great artists. It is from my father that I learned to treat paintings, to clean them, to restore them.

And it was that type of contact, so manual, so physical, so material, that made me love art in a different way. I soon realized that I had to walk alone. Yes, of my own free will I left the family gallery and opened my own. Online. I started studying again, learning more and broadening my horizons. Not only by reading books, but also by surfing the net. I discovered contemporaneity: a world animated by an underground energy that comes from unknown, brilliant artists with enormous potential.
