Description
Views of Venice II- Diniz, Carlos.- First edition

Santa Barbara: Carlos Diniz, 2000. Illustrated with 10 full page colour reproductions of Diniz’s paintings of Venice, and one large foldout plate also in colour.-“This small folio will keep you up to date on my progress developing the VIEWS OF VENICE study. The occasional notes about some of the them may be of interest to you.” - Carlos Diniz
Carlos Diniz (1928-2001) is recognized as one of the most important practitioners of Architectural Illustration in the twentieth century. He is know for his work with many Pritzker, Gold Medal and pioneering architects of the 20th century. Enlisting in the Army in 1946, Diniz was stationed in Italy. As he was later to write, “It didn’t take long for the architectural splendors of Venice to work their magic on me and I took to sketching them in earnest.” Upon his discharge, Diniz enrolled at Art Center College of Design, with the intent of pursuing his other passion, automotive design, but a week long trip to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Architecture School and the influence of an instructor that commissioned him to produce illustrations of a Case Study House to be published in Arts & Architecture led to another direction. Along with his studies at Art Center, Diniz set about a self-education in Architecture. He graduated Art Center in 1950 with a degree in Specialized Design but found himself employed at various Architectural offices. In 1957 Diniz opened his own studio, Carlos Diniz Associates Visual Communications and modeled its structure after an Architectural office. The studio was to focus on architectural presentation in the fullest sense, producing everything from drawings and paintings, logos, presentations, brochures and marketing tools. The client roster quckly filled with well established and upcoming architects including Welton Becket, Minoru Yamasaki, SOM, Ladd & Kelsey and, naturally, Victor Gruen. Throughout his career, Diniz built a client base of the largest and most prolific firms of the era. Many of his professional relationships, such as that with SOM, spanned decades. Diniz also did several projects for the Walt Disney Company, including work on Epcott Center at Disney World, Orlando, Tokyo Disney and Disney’s California Adventure. Carlos Diniz was considered an integral part of American architecture and architectural presentation by his many clients, associates and peers. In 1993 he was awarded an Honorary AIA as a symbol of this accomplishment. Diniz moved to Santa Barbara in 1998, where he continued to paint his Venice series. He died of heart failure on July 18, 2001 - Carlos Diniz Art.
