01 Painting, Streets of Paris, Part 65 - With Footnotes

Antonio Gravina, (Italy, 1934-2011)
Oil on canvas

Private collection

Parisian street scene in the rain with a flower stall, crowds of people, and street cars in the foreground before building and a grey sky in the background.

Antonio Gravina was born in Naples in 1934 and studied at the Art Institute in that city.  He started painting when only fifteen years old.  Gravina’s great fantasy cannot be denied given the great variety of his subjects, to which he gives a very special immediacy.  

Gravina has taken part in many national and international exhibitions.He also took part in many art competitions with great success.  We find his works in many Italian and foreign collections. More on Antonio Gravina
