Claudio Simonetti


Claudio Simonetti was born in Italy on January 29, 1929 into a well-known family of accomplished artists.  From his father he inherited his love for art and his great use of colors.  He began his studies at art school, where he quickly won his professor’s recognition and praise.  After these studies, he traveled extensively throughout Italy and France, where he painted from nature and learned from his association with other artists. To this day he still paints and exhibits regularly in Venice, Milan and Paris.  Today his work expresses the unique maturity of his talent.  Though he seeks out new expressions in art, his work always sticks to the fundamentals of painting.

His work consists of exquisite drawing, composition and color.  His landscapes of the Italian countryside, his marine paintings of coastal villages, and the scenes of canals of Venice, appeal to everyone because of the well balanced technique and the sense of poetry that is present in each painting.  His works are in private collections worldwide.
