Framed Canvas Replica

by Patrick Antonelle

Antonelle Art Impressions is proud to announce the first offering of a canvas replica of Patrick Antonelle's art.  While our limited edition paper lithographs accurately portray Patrick's imagery and provide a cost effective way to collect and invest in Patrick's art, these new replicas exhibit that art back on the medium in which they were originally crafted - canvas.

Pointillism Used for Effect

 A number of art critics, in praising Patrick Antonelle’s paintings, note his mastery of the pointillistic-impressionistic style.  During the heyday of neo-impressionism, when artist’s like Gauguin and Cezanne were building on styles previously exhibited by the likes of Monet and Renoir, a number of artists stopped blending paints on the palette altogether and instead applied them on the canvas in small dots and dashes.  In certain ratios and patterns, these colors blend in the perception of viewers, more so as the distance from the painting increases.  Camille Pissarro, Paul Signac and Georges Seurat were the masters of this genre, labeled “divisionism” by Seurat but more popularly termed “pointillism” by the art critic and early Vogue journalist Felix Feneon.  Aside from innovation and achievement of targeted hues, pointillism can engender a shimmering vibrancy.

In his artwork, Patrick Antonelle uses a combination of styles to garner the precise effect sought.  While his sense of colors recreates the entire spectrum of nature’s chromatic wonder and his mastery of impressionism renders scenes that are as romantic and personal as they are beautiful, his deft utilization of pointillism makes his artwork come to life. Snow seems to fall, lakes glisten and people move about their lives.  Most pictures present snapshots of a single moment.  Thanks to technical mastery of painting’s great innovations, Patrick’s art captures entire chapters.

Lost and Found

Years ago, a lithograph was issued featuring a reproduction of one of Patrick's quintessential early works, "Old New York".  The limited edition sold out so quickly, we almost forgot about its existence.

As we continue to build up the on-line portfolio that we hope will eventually show the greater body of Patrick's work, we at long last add this treasure.
