 The Atmospheric Paintings of

Patrick Antonelle

by Thomas Lawrence

Patrick Antonelle takes pleasure in painting scenes in which the powerful skyscraper, the icon of the modern city, is brought into balance with nature's dressing of winter's snow and spring's blossoms.

Patrick Antonelle, as a foremost impressionistic painter, has been established with picturesque city images, and sparkling, sun-filled park and garden scenes. The changing seasons in Central Park and Manhattan's streets have drawn him in, and his unique vision and reverence for nature have drawn the attention of many art connoisseurs.

In Winter on Fifth Avenue, Mr. Antonelle rolls back the clock and captures a time in Manhattan when a horse and buggy, vintage cars and top hats were the fashion. With such precision, and a flair for romanticism, he paints a picture in which we can escape; we can fantasize about a time when the main thoroughfare of New York City was intimate and charming. With every brushstroke, he has managed to eliminate any suggestions of city danger and stress, and has filled the atmosphere with optimism and joy.

As in all of Mr. Antonelle's paintings, the composition in this painting is well planned. He has opened up the sky so that the eye is uplifted and forced back to the emerging center foreground which is dotted with sparkling lights emanating from the trees.

Patrick Antonelle takes pleasure in painting scenes in which the powerful skyscraper, the icon of the modem city, is brought into balance with nature's dressing of winter's snow and spring's blossoms. His paintings of Central Park frequently combine stately trees against majestic buildings in the distance-Man and Nature at their best.


Mr. Antonelle has exhibited nationwide, and his paintings are in the possession of many public and private collections, including the Sculleys of Apple Computers, Frank Sinatra, and Citicorp.1n addition to many original paintings on the subject of New York, limited edition prints of his work are also available.
