Painting by : Guido Odierna (Italian, 1913-1991) noted painter, born November 13th, 1913 in Capri, Italy, known for his seascapes in oil, landscapes, still lifes, botanical, coastal and fishing boat scenes in places such as Capri, Naples, Florence, Rome, the Amalfi coast and Venice. Guido studied at the Royal Academy and with the great seascape painter Cavalier Michele Federico (Italian, 1884-1966), and also in the studio of artist Konstantin Ivanovich Gorbatov (Russian, 1876-1945) who was one of the outstanding painters of Capri (sometimes listed as Constantin Ivanovich Gorbatoff).


In his paintings he interpreted and captured Capri with her fierce rocks and seaside cliffs along the translucent sea, the mountains of the Piemonte region (or Piedmont) which starkly rise into the blue sky, the golden glow of Rome and the mother of pearl hues of Venice--all with equal poetic passion. His love of the sea shows in his seascapes where the waters take on their own personalities. The waters of Capri, Trieste, Chioggia and Venice all feature prismatic impressions and sensations within his paintings along with expressed inspiration and fine technique-truly, a master of his palette and brush. His paintings of Capri depict many different areas of the island and made up a large part of his body of work.
