Angel Ramiro Sanchez
Allegory of Chopin-Nocturne Impressionist Florence Academy Figurative Oil

2016

About the Item

Allegory of Chopin (Nocturne) is as simple and pure as it sounds. Ramiro has used the subject of a rapturous beautiful young women to convey the emotions he feels when listening to the Chopin nocturnes, which are classically inspired but very experimental and unresolved. Again, he finds a way to paint his souls reaction to beauty. Framed in an Italian handmade black frame with gold leaf trim. Framed dimensions: 35.25 x 47 inches. Angel Ramiro Sanchez, born in 1974 in Maracaibo, Venezuela, is a realist artist whose art career began when he was relatively young. He started studying painting at 14 years old and moved to Florence, Italy at age 19. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Accademia di Belle Arti in 1997. While at Belle Arti, Ramiro also studied at Daniel Graves' atelier-styled Florence Academy of Art (FAA). Sanchez is now the senior painting instructor at the FAA. This allows him time to pursue his own work in a private studio. Ramiro's paintings combine the accuracy of academic realism, with a passion for laying paint on the canvas. His portraits and landscapes evoke qualities last seen at the turn of century from another expatriate painter of Florence, John Singer Sargent. Ramiro's paintings also show an intense attention to the relevant details (proportion, line, and shape), but a creative and often expressive approach to completing the paintings. Ramiro always works from life, and his works are in private collections in Italy, Germany, England, Hungary, the United States, Canada and Venezuela. An impressionist painting depicting a square in Florence, the roof of Il Duomo peeking out between the buildings in the foreground. Angel Ramiro Sanchez was born in 1974 in Maracaibo, Venezuela. At age six was accepted with full scholarship into the Instituto the Niños Cantores del Zulia, school for musically gifted children. At age fourteen he began five years of apprenticeship with the realist painter, Abdon J. Romero, an eminent specialist in murals for churches and public buildings. In 1993, a study grant from Mgr. Gustavo Ocando Yamarte, Founder the Niños Cantores, enabled him to travel to Florence, Italy, where he studied at the renowned Accademia di Belle Arti, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1997. At the same time, he was enrolled at The Florence Academy of Art,founded by painter Daniel Graves, where he received a diploma in Painting. Ramiro was appointed senior painting instructor at The Florence Academy of Art in 1997, and is currently Director of the Advanced Painting Program. Ramiro paints only from life, searching for accuracy beyond physical appearance to reach the psychological state of his subject. He believes the painter must draw his information from "all five senses" to tell the complete human story. Ramiro's works can be found in numerous private collections in Europe, The United States and South America. Public collections include: The Fondazione Stelline, Milan, Italy. The Fremantle Foundation for Foreign Artist in Tuscany at Villa Peyron, Florence, Italy and The Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA. USA. He shares his life and passion for art with his wife, the artist Melissa Franklin-Sanchez., their two children and their beagle Maya.
