- Has received prizes and recognition
«In love with the countryside of Tuscany, De Panis has a vigorous, happy way of rendering the atmosphere of this enchanting part of Italy. At the same time, both poetical and realistic, he creates a symphony where sky, hills, fields in summertime, tall cypress trees and typical farm houses play their part together with a dynamic, comunicative spirituality. It is impossibile to be indifferent in front of his paintings. It is impossibile to pass them by too quickly. Francesco De Panis can be reproached for one thing only: he bewitchd us»
Born in Genova in 1949, after attending Art School and the Academy of Art, he experimented the laws of simultaneous contrasts and complementary colours. His paintings combine precision, fluidity, compositional balance and trasparency. Very rerely such fineness of touch, such grasp of detail has been achieved by an artist.
Francesco De Panis has exhibited in important places in Italy, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, USA, and Venezuela. His works can be found in many important collections in Italy and abroad.
Malaga, La Spezia, Genova, Milano, Caracas (Venezuela), Ambuly (Switzerland), Turin, Florence, Dallas (Texas, USA), New York, Calgary (Canada), Villingen (Germany).
