Contemporary Realism on View > Albemarle Gallery is showing an exclusive, posthumous exhibition of paintings by the Italian master, Luciano Ventrone. This a solemn occasion for the gallery as it marks the end of a long and creative association. Sadly, Luciano Ventrone died in April this year.
More from the gallery:
The core of this show are realism works that came directly from Luciano’s studio, intended for an exhibition in 2020 that had to be cancelled because of the pandemic. There are an additional fourteen works from the estate and the personal collection of Luciano’s widow. This is a unique and poignant opportunity to view new and unseen paintings and also to experience a retrospective survey of his accomplishment.
Born in 1942, Luciano Ventrone had a long and distinguished career, the outcome of a prodigious talent and a determined and painstaking commitment to its development. Collected worldwide, with an international reputation, he was, at heart, a thoroughly Italian painter. His practice was steeped in the spirit of classicism and the tenets of order and beauty, forged in the Italian Renaissance, particularly the Cinquecento.
Albemarle Gallery enjoyed a close relationship with Luciano Ventrone and feels honoured to have aided him in his vocation. It has been a great pleasure for all who worked with him to witness the flourishing of his art over so many productive years. His remarkable pictures remain as a testament to his vision.
