La Realta Dell’Illusione

cover

I’d like to highlight this great book; La Realta Dell’Illusione by Silvana Ghigino.

As I’ve outlined in my 2 posts:  Italian vs French style of decorative painting, there is a noticeable difference.  Much is written about the French Style, but this book is a great example of Italian trompe l’oeil, faux marble and woodgraining.

Silvan Ghigino was one of the most celebrated facade artists in Italy.  His career spanned many decades and his variety of works are numerous.

Even though the text is in Italian, the sheer amount of photos and step-by-step reference will give you all the necessary information to see how Silvan created his architectural trompe l’oeil and ornamentation. The illustrations and photos make it easy to understand perspective concepts.  This book also includes al fresco and scraffito techniques.

This book will be our DEAL OF THE MONTH for November.  Be sure to sign up for our monthly newsletters to catch the big discount!  It’s a great addition to your library of reference books on decorative painting.  And hey, invite an Italian over so he/she can translate for you!!

Here are some  page excerpts from the book:
