The artist is very well distinguished by his style because you will find a lot of different and original details in his works. Starting with the streets of a modern city, ending with natural landscapes in a particular place, you will find almost every type of environment with a distinguished fact that human being is always predominant in his works. The artist's works are collected in many private collections in Georgia, Russia, Ukraine and USA. More on Ilia Balavadze

Giuseppe Barison (September 5, 1853 – January 7, 1931) was an Italian painter and engraver, active in Venice

Barison found a patron in the aristocratic Anna De Rin, who placed him in apprenticeship with the painter Karl Emil Haase in Trieste, and then enrolled him in the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. In 1872, Barison began to take lessons from the Nazarene painters Karl von Blaas and Eduard Von Engerth, and also took courses in art history from August Eisenmenger.

Returning to Trieste in 1876, the next year he participated at the Esposizione di Belle Arti, which gains him a two-year stipend from the city to study in Rome. After Rome, he spent some years in Venice. His wife Giulia, originally from Trieste, and not happily settled in Venice, successfully urged her husband to relocate to Trieste. He experienced a chilly reception there, in part due to his personality, in part due to his Venetian style of painting.

The First World War exiled Barison to the house of Roberto Amadi in Pegli, Liguria where he stayed from 1915 to 1918, and continued painting land- and sea-scapes. After the war, he returned to Trieste, and along with contemporaries Guido Grimani and Ugo Flumiani, continued to paint such themes. He often painted outdoors. In his last years Barison took on new influences. He died in Trieste on January 7, 1931. More on Giuseppe Barison
