Mario Passoni
"An Afternoon Along the Seine, Paris" Impressionist Oil Painting on Canvas Scene

Late 20th Century

About the Item

An exceptional impressionistic depiction of an afternoon along the Seine in Paris by Mario Passoni, on a spring day with the busy activities of people walking and of figures leaning over the side to catch a glimpse of the boats overlooking Pont Neuf and at the distance the Grand cupola-topped building of the Institut de France for the Intellectual Academies. The Paris captured in this piece is the city of poetry, the “City of Lights”. This painting is signed by the artist lower right and it comes comes housed in a beautiful gold tone decorative frame ready to be displayed with hanging wire on verso. Art measures 12 x 16 inches Frame measures 18 x 22 inches Mario Passoni was born in Naples in 1929. Although he did not have any formal painting training, he was one of those fortunate enough artist to be born with the ability to paint and, as a self-taught artist, he painted just about any subject; from landscapes, street scenes, café scenes to figures and even sacred subjects. Using a pleasantly impressionist style were we can always find lively colors. While growing up during the 1950s, Passoni was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. During the Post War period, New York City became the international focus for Modernism, and throughout the Second World War, many artists had made their way to the busy city after having fled in exile from Europe, resulting in a merging and amalgamation of talent and ideas. Whilst in New York, he was still influenced by Europeans painters such as Piet Mondrian, Josef Albers and Hans Hoffmann, providing inspiration for American artists, and influenced cultural development in the United States for many decades that followed. In 1968, Passoni won a Gold Medal in Paris in a showing entitled “The Art of the Frame”. He was also involved in a collective exhibition in Rome in 1971 and a one-man show in Cagliari in 1975. These and many other exhibitions have established Passoni as a first-rate Italian artist. PROVENANCE: Estate of a Private collection Austin, Texas; Private Collection Manhattan, New York; Lilac Gallery Collection. The piece will be stamped from Lilac Gallery on its verso.
