Up for auction is an unsigned etching titled "Stones and Shadows" by Luigi Lucioni. It measures 10.25" x 7.75" and is in good condition.
Born in Malnate, Italy, in 1900, Luigi Lucioni became one of America's well-known landscape painters, whose work has been noted for its heightened realism and photographic attention to detail.
Lucioni immigrated to the United States with his family in 1911. In 1915 he won a competition which allowed him to attend Cooper Union, and he began studying there with William Starkweather.
In 1920, he studied with William Auerbach Levy at the National Academy of Design, and in 1922 was the recipient of a Tiffany Foundation Scholarship. The Fellowship enabled him to go back to his homeland in 1924 to study Italian primitives. He responded immediately to the realism of early Renaissance painting, which left a lasting impression on his work.
While the Raymer Society makes every effort to offer authentic, original artwork it is ultimately the bidders responsible for assessing and determining the work of artâ€™s authenticity, condition and quality before purchasing. Shipping estimates are available upon request.
